From initial in-home consultation and assessment through to home sale, Michael Gillies and his team were thorough, professional, patient, honest, straightforward, and responsive. Michael’s advice was spot-on. He clearly understood the market conditions, listened to our concerns and intentions, and then outlined a marketing plan that led to direct success. He recommended (and provided at no additional cost) an outstanding home staging expert who provided excellent advice – leading to an effective and highly-marketable videography/photography session (again, at no additional cost to us). He also provided a full home warranty to cover any unexpected large expenses. Michael was flexible enough to get our home listed on the market and on all the appropriate additional home sale sites a full ten days earlier than originally anticipated (when we were able to get it ready sooner than expected). All the early planning and preparation paid off as multiple offers were received within the first week, and Michael responded immediately, expertly negotiating with all parties involved, quickly resulting in a signed contract. Even with an aggressive 30-day closing requested by the buyer, Michael and his team walked us through all the necessary steps, handled all minor changes expediently, and were obviously comfortable with and fully-versed in the processes required for a successful closing. We were extremely pleased with the efforts and expertise of Michael and his entire team. Would recommend him to anyone in our neighborhood (and already have to several).
