I couldn’t recommend anyone higher than I am The Michael Smith Team It was by his expertise that my home sold so quickly. I don’t have anything to suggest that he could have done better. I would like to thank Michael for going above and beyond with his service. It made the sale of my home go very smoothly even after living in the home for over 30 years. Thank you to you all.
I cannot speak highly enough of my sales experience with Michael. Not only was he extremely sensitive to the fact that this was an estate sale and therefore emotionally sensitive, but the level of communication and professionalism was absolutely top notch.
Thank you to Michael and team for everything!
