Representing the Triangle's Golf Course and Other Fine Properties
It's my philosophy to treat all customers, as I would like to be treated and to treat each customer's transaction as if it were my own. It's simply the right thing to do. I feel strongly that a satisfied buyer or seller will enhance my business and reputation. Here's some of what they've said over the years:
“Michael was great to work with. I was in the later stages of pregnancy and couldn't have disruption in my life. He sold our home quickly for the price we wanted; knew what we wanted in a new home in North Carolina , found it quickly, and negotiated a great deal. He stayed in touch consistently before and after the sale. This made it very easy. We highly recommend Michael to our friends and co-workers”
J.J and Diane McCrath, Wake Forest
“Michael's ability listen, his knowledge of the Triangle area made looking for a new house very streamlined and efficient. We had special needs and he did not waste our time on properties that ware of no interest. He did a superb job of negotiating the price and also the inspection list! He also did a great job of selling our house in the golfing community of Macgregor Downs”
Max and Lois Hamlyn, Bruce Drive
Scout and I would like to express our thanks for the help you give us in buying our new house. We were constantly pleased when dealing with you. We left like we were dealing with an experienced agent and we were glad to have expertise along the way. So far, we love our new house! We hope to see you again soon and look forward to working with you in the future.
Sincerely, Scout and Lesley Wade
"Mike is a very knowledgeable and personable agent. We've enjoyed working with him very much and do so again if the situation warranted it."
Ken and Pat Schweitzer, Sunset Ridge
"We've bought and sold many houses and you met our expectations well. You were trustworthy and we were comfortable working with you. You were knowledgeable in the things a house should offer. I would recommend you and would use you again. Thanks for your help and the best to you and your family."
Ron and Jean Hawley, North Raleigh
Raleigh was a small town of less than 100,000 people when my family made the short move to Raleigh from nearby Sanford in 1973. Since then substantial growth has changed the capital of NC into a major metropolitan area with over 350,000 people making it the second largest city in NC with as many as 40-50 moving here daily! Wake County has grown along as well with over 750,000 residents drawn by jobs, climate, location, health care and natural beauty among other factors.
Traveling after college, I compared other places but decided to live in Raleigh. Where else could you, in less than 4 hours, travel to the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains, or drive straight down an Interstate about 2.5 hours to experience the beaches, and then come home to a progressive area blessed with a diverse economy, outstanding human capital and a temperate four season climate?
After a brief stint selling golf course property in Pinehurst and Southern Pines, NC, I joined Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston in 1994 as a general brokerage agent and have thoroughly enjoyed helping people relocate from out of town or move within this area. I feel my time spent here and my experience enables me to bring an advantage to anyone wishing to buy or sell real estate in Wake County and all contiguous counties.
My experience includes: expertly assisting buyer and sellers, providing relocation services to out-of-town buyers and sellers, working with local builders and developers with the development of land, and commercial. As a golfer, I’ve played all the golf course in the area so in 1997 I developed a niche market catering to buyers and sellers of golf course properties! I have been fortunate to have forged relationships with great people and my service before and after the sale has inspired them to compliment me with referrals. That has enabled me to consistently place in the higher brackets for sales production. There is no substitute for experience.
I’d be happy to share testimonials upon request. My goal is to perpetuate my business by offering exemplary helping people buy or sell properties at the best terms and conditions at the least inconvenience to them!
