Testimonials for Mike Lies
Mike was extremely helpful to me during my process of buying my home. This was my first time buying a home and Mike helped me a lot. At times I wasn't sure what to look for and his suggestions were great. He took my preferences into consideration well, and understood what I was looking for. He was very knowledgeable about many areas around where I wanted to buy and the pros and cons of each. Throughout the entire buying and looking process he kept in contact with me and was quick to reply and everyday I would get an email or message with helpful walk through points in the buying process. He was very polite and professional and a fun person to look at homes with!
With the state of the current Real Estate market, this isn't the time to be working with amateurs. Mike and Andrew know what they're doing and it's evident from the first conversation. Their attention to details is what really makes a difference. I highly recommend them to anybody in the market to buy or sell their home.
Mike and his team are very professional I really appreciate the fact that honesty is the main characteristic that Mike and his team bring to the table because of this Mike was able to help us sell 1st day on the market getting 10 dollars a square ft higher then average for the neighborhood
We have received outstanding service from Mike Lies. He is very knowledgeable, responsive and efficient. I would recommend this real estate professional to anyone. Thank you for your help!!
I'd like to thank Mike for selling my condo. There are a lot of things that go into selling a condo that I didn't even realize. He helped me with every step and answered all my questions while getting it ready to list. We had 10 showings a week for the 2 weeks it was listed. When we had multiple offers Mike took the time to explain the differences so I could make the best decision. He is very professional and I would recommend him to anyone buying or selling a house.
Mike is very professional and fun to work with. He always has a smile. He answer all my questions promptly any time of the day. He also recommended me to other professionals that I ended up using, like loan officers, and inspectors. When the loan process went slower then I felt it should of been, Mike contacted the loan officers on my behalf to get things done faster. Also, the seller was not very friendly and kick all of us out of the house during inspection. Mike was very calm and professional and still got us to do a walk through with the inspector. Mike insured me that this wasn't normal and realize to avoid future conflicts, he set up different times for the seller and I. Everything went smoothly during closing. I never felt any pressure from him and he help me identify potential problems with the houses we looked at. I already recommended him to my cousin because I felt highly of him. I filed bankruptcy three years ago and I bought a new house. I highly recommend Mike.
Mike was very professional and helpful in getting my home ready to sell. He was very honest and respectful of my time and made the whole process easier than I expected. I would highly recommend him and will use him for all my real estate transactions from this point forward.
