Thanks for taking a moment to review this information. I appreciate you investing time with me and want to be sure to do my best to serve your needs. With that in my mind, it seems beneficial to explain how I conduct business.
I can assist you with ANY property for sale, even though it may be listed with another Real Estate company or For Sale By Owner. Please remember, I will be happy to obtain any information you need. I will not receive credit if you contact the listing REALTOR or Real Estate Company who has the sign on the property! (Real Estate transactions have two sides, a listing side and a sales side. The listing REALTOR will still receive compensation from the "listing" side.) If you wish to see a "For Sale By Owner" please write down the address and phone number and contact me with that information so I can schedule our appointment.
My service to you as a buyer is FREE, as the REALTOR commission is already built into the asking price of the property, and is paid by the seller. My job is to get you the best price possible and assist you through a smooth transaction, as my business depends on referrals from satisfied customers! Once we find a property, I will handle all of the details for you, from writing your contract to attending your closing.
To assist you in deciding on a property, I can obtain a Seller's Property Disclosure statement that will give you detailed information about the property, comparable sale information, and a survey (if available) from the previous owner. Also, we can change research criteria, such as increase or decrease price, change square footage or garage requirements, etc., which will generate new options to review.
If you are looking to sell a property, please allow me the opportunity to explain how listing the property with me will make this sometimes difficult process as smooth as possible.
If you have any questions about this information please don't hesitate to call me. I look forward to hearing from you and working with you to find that special property or in selling your current one!
|When my wife and I were looking for a house after our relocation to Tallahassee, Michael was quick to respond and provided many options that fit our needs. The house we settled on was perfect for our family and a great value. Thanks to Michael's help our closing was completed without any headaches. We would highly recommend him.|

|To a first time home buyer, Michael was beyond helpful in explaining the home-buying process. Michael made it all seem so fluid and was there to help us and reassure us through all the steps. He not only found us our first house, he found us our dream house. It is perfect for our growing family and budget.|

|Our family has worked with Michael for years now and we highly recommended him to anyone looking to buy or sell a house. Michael goes above and beyond to take care of his clients, and I experienced that first hand during the sale of our home. He's also a great negotiator and there's no one more punctual. I'm personally grateful for Michael, as a realtor and as a friend.|
|Michael helped me find the house of my dreams. The process was fast. He answered all my questions and helped me with the whole process. Very friendly and professional.|
|R.Yates Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $150K in Tallahassee, FL.|
|Michael was honest and approachable throughout the entire process. My wife and I were shown numerous houses within my specified price range and all of our questions were answered promptly and informatively. Michael's wealth of knowledge was indispensable--he assisted with nearly every aspect of the purchase, and helped me negotiate fairly with the seller when it came to repairs. All-in-all, I couldn't have been more pleased with the final outcome. My wife and I are thrilled with our home, and are grateful to Michael for his expertise and assistance.|
|Michael is one of the most experienced agents I have ever encountered in the Tallahassee area! His laid back style allows for low stress house hunting and permits the buyer to make their personal choice without concern of being forced into a home that the realtor wants instead of what is truly needed. Michael showed my husband and I the patience of a saint as we looked at a multitude of homes before we found our perfect match. From the first property to the surprise congratulatory visit he paid us after our closing, we always were met with kindness and courtesy. Michael spent countless hours negotiating with the seller and the seller's agent, as there were many unforseen issues with the selling individuals. Despite the seller's personal problems, our agent, Michael Lee, was given an extra bonus by the disgruntled gentleman at closing and the seller's own agent was not. I believe that this speaks volumes of Michael's professionalism, tact, kindness, and interest in finding the best fit for all of his clients. I intend to utilize Michael for any of my future home needs, as I could not have asked for a better representative to assist us in purchasing a home!|

|Michael Lee found us the exact house we had been looking for. We had been trying to drive around and find one on our own or by using the internet but we hadn't had any luck. Michael called us and said he had a house he thought we would love. He was right. We saw the house twice put in an offer and now we are living in a house we love. Michael did a great job and we highly recommend him.|

|I was referred to Michael by a good friend and I am very grateful I went with his Agency. I never had travelled around Tallahassee and heavily relied on Michael to find me a suitable place in the best location. He did not disappoint - I am continually glad of the area he found, the price I got, and the neighbors I have. He made buying my first home (in a new city) far less stressful because he is a exceedingly trustworthy. I'll gladly ask him to help me I ever need anything regarding properties.|
|Michael Lee is an exceptional realtor. I worked with Michael several years ago, and he was extremely patient with our home search. I made six offers on 5 different houses over the course of 1.5 years, and Michael never wavered. We ended up finding the home of our dreams, and Michael was very knowledgable about all the necessary steps. I highly recommend Michael Lee to anyone looking for a great realtor.|

|Michael Lee helped us though the sale of our home and complicated contract. He held several open houses at the home and kept us informed of every detail. This was important to us since we were no longer in the area. Highly recommended.|
|Sold a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $175K in Crawfordville, FL|
|Michael took on our listing in Crawfordville at a time in the real estate market when we were doubtful it could sell quickly or even at all. Within a month, he had produced a serious offer and we closed a month later. His market research was excellent. He helped us to find the right price that produced the profit we needed yet led to a quick sale. Even though we had already left the area to move to central Florida, we felt at ease knowing he was handling all the details.|
