Michael's help was indispensable for finding and buying a home in Austin from out of state on a short notice. He offered advice, contacts and information that helped us time our home search appropriately, get pre approved by a locally-licensed lender, identify the best neighborhoods for our needs, negotiate and resolve issues with the seller. He found us a much better home than we had hoped for in our price range. Michael was very knowledgeable about all parts of Austin and the surrounding suburbs, which made our search a lot more efficient and prevented us from wasting time to see homes that would have resulted in too long of a commute or a neighborhood with undesirable features. Michael was also very familiar with local builders, which increased our options for potential homes by adding unlisted new construction from builders known for good quality. He was always available for a call and worked tirelessly around our schedule until he found a home for us. When the seller/lender created an issue that could have prevented us from closing, Michael immediately researched it for us and spent a significant amount of time to help us figure out our options and come up with a plan of action, ultimately resulting in resolving the issue. He truly is a great guy who takes his clients' best interests to heart every step of the way. Outstanding Realtor!
