Happy Clients

Highly recommend Mike and his Team. We worked with Mike to prepare and sell our family home of 56 years. He was a huge help in coordinating all of the moving parts including managing the improvement work that was done by a contractor. Mike kept us all informed every step of the way and was always available to answer questions and provide guidance on decisions we had to make along the way. The results spoke for themselves - the house sold for well over asking price and within a couple days. Can't say enough great things about Mike and his Team - it was a great experience for us. Thanks Mike!

Mike just helped me sell the house that I had lived in for the past 17 years. The house was in good condition, but Mike came over to give me recommendations on things that I should do to help my house sell even faster. I was in a bit of a time crunch so Mike helped me find the contractors and house cleaners to complete some needed work in a timely fashion. The house was looking sharp after the work was done and Mike was very active in his communication with me the entire time. I have never even heard of anyone having such a wonderful experience with a realtor when trying to sell a home as I did with Mike. I would not hesitate for one second to have Mike and his team handle the sale of your home. You will not be disappointed!

My wife and I have sold a number of houses and the experience we had with Mike was without doubt the best yet. Professional, excellent communication, an outstanding knowledge of the market, and a feeling that we were working as a team to get the sale done. Everyone was clear on expectations and timing, the scope of the project to get the house ready, and the resources that would be required (with Mike having numerous contacts to get the kitchen remodeled, flooring, painting, landscaping done.) We felt like we were truly working with a partner rather than being just another transaction.

Mike did an amazing job guiding us through the home selling process. He made great suggestions for how to maximize our value without putting 'too much' extra money into the home. He even had great people that he referred to us for a few jobs (house cleaning, painting etc). Mike gave us instruction and guidance from beginning to end of the process as it was our first time selling a home. He is an excellent communicator and more than anything knows how to 'close the deal' which can be trickier than it looks sometimes in real estate. Mike is a great realtor and you would be lucky to have him on your side. Also he is a really nice guy and very thoughtful which is always an added bonus!
- Pete Simos
I had such a great experience with Mike. Having never sold property before, I hadn't any idea where to begin, then came Mike and his arsenal of designers, contractors and other support staff to the rescue. Mike was always prepared, eager, and knowledgeable of the neighborhood . If he didn't know the exact answer to my question, and there were many, he had the answer by the end of the day.. All this done with a $100 smile on his face. Mike made what was a very stressful situation for me smooth sailing. I heartily recommend Mike for all real estate ventures.
- Larry Carothers
I've sold nine residential properties, with nine different Real Estate Agents, over the years. If I could choose any one of them to sell the next house - Mike D'Ambrosio would be my choice, with out question, he has been the best. We had been set to list with a different agent when a friend suggested we call Mike 'just to talk about it'. Mike came by the next day and within 10 minutes all three of us were convinced that Mike should be our agent. We are all glad we made that choice. Mike communicates effectively every step of the way without making us feel burdened with messages.Mike found a buyer within three days and that initial offer was 10% over asking price. That's an example of how well he knows the marketplace. I trust him implicitly and would use him buying or selling if I ever need an agent in silicon valley again.
