Steve, Prudential North West Realty - My sellers were blown away by the effort you made to make sure your clients were well represented. The effort you made to find your clients shows how hard you work to close transactions. I informed them that this was consistent to your reputation. I believe this factor was the ultimate tipping point that put you over the top when the other buyers were willing to match your price – Congratulations to your buyers they are going to get this Condo because of who they are represented by.
Steve, Prudential North West Realty - It was very nice to deal with professionals.
Erin, Pillar Northwest - I appreciate working with another agent who genuinely cares about their client's best intrest.
Sean, John L Scott - I's nice to be working with a real pro!
Ellie - Thanks again, Michael... You'r a good realtor..! You pay attention to details..!
James and Elisa - Michael Menin defines "Above and Beyond" Great service..!
Scott - You went above and beyond the duties of a real estate agent and became our local guide to the communities working over twelve hour days researching and driving to possible homes for us to consider. Your optimism persisted even when our spirits were down thinking that we would never find the “right” house in our timeline.
Todd - This letter is to thank you for all of your hard work in recently selling our home. Your thoroughness and thoughtfulness really made the difference in producing results, when our previous agent’s efforts were not. We would highly recommend you to anyone who is looking for a professional realtor. Thanks again and we look forward to using your services again in the future.
Lisa - When I relocated with T-Mobile to the Bellevue area, I was referred to Michael Menin. He provided excellent customer service, was extremely knowledgeable of the area as well as how a relocation program worked, which was beneficial to me as a client as this was my first experience. He grew up in the Issaquah area and has previous construction experience which was also helpful to me as a client. He connected me with valuable resources for my financing needs, assisted me with finding a realtor in Oregon to help me sell my home, and coordinated the timing of selling and purchasing. I referred him to a couple of my colleagues who also were very satisfied with him. I have since recommended Michael to participate in our Corporate Relocation program and he has been approved. He is certified with Cartus as a Network Referral Specialist. I highly recommend Michael for his customer service, knowledge and professionalism. The working knowledge and understanding that he had about relocation programs, so he was able to explain all of the details and options to me.
Chadd and Elena - In terms of timeliness, he was diligent in his efforts to do every aspect of his job as an agent as well as he can. He was punctual, attentive, well presented, and courteous at all times. He took responsibility to ensure that we would not miss deadlines, and that we would know our options in time to make reasoned decisions. Occasionally he asserted himself with extra insistence, despite our making it difficult for him to do so, when it was clear to him that we would be glad that we heeded his informed advice. This was exactly the kind of interaction and professionalism we needed from our agent to be able to predictably end up in a home that was to our satisfaction. In the finalization process, when it appeared that some of our expectations might not be met by our builder, we were still able to be confident that between us and Michael, we would not end up with a lost deal or an unpalatable compromise. In fact it was Michael's ability to quickly rustle up an up-to-date property diagram near the last minute that prevented a good deal of stress for us. The more tricky task for an agent is to abet a wise decision in the buyer. To this end, we felt that Michael hit the right balance between his own opinions and our expressed interests. We never felt that he was pushing us toward something that we were uncomfortable with. He was always upfront about the conditions of and prospects for properties which we viewed. Most importantly, though, he was able to affirm the correctness of our own convictions with his much longer experience and his good knowledge of home construction. This was invaluable in helping us decide on our property before it was too late to do so. We're very happy that we worked with Michael!
Kristy - Our family was moving from a home in Medina and we were considering several different neighborhoods. We wanted areas with great elementary schools but also nice rental homes. Michael always had a well thought out plan for viewing the homes that met our criteria. He was well prepared for all the showings we went on. He was always very business-like and helped greatly with my decision. He was always providing new insight and he helped me think of the advantages and disadvantages of each home. Many of those disadvantages I had never even thought of but they would surely become an issue if we had lived there. One of Michael’s greatest strengths is problem solving. For instance, one of the homes we had looked at was in a section of Kirkland with some shabby apartment complexes down the road. Michael noticed the problem and immediately called the sheriff’s department to figure out the crime rate in the area. We got our answer (it was favorable) and now we live in that house. If Michael hadn’t identified and followed up on this issue I’m not sure I would be living here.I’ve also found that Michael is very patient. Never did he try to rush me or lobby heavily for a certain property because he had other clients to attend to, wanted to close the deal quickly, etc. He gave me all the time I needed and was there for me when I was ready for his opinion. He also went “above and beyond” when the final paperwork needed to be signed. He often drove up to see me at the house in mid-evening so I could sign papers. He did this several times. And he was always gracious and had a very positive attitude about it.I sincerely hope that your real estate experience is a pleasurable one. Retaining Michael would be an excellent choice. If you wish to contact me over the phone please let Michael know – he knows how to reach me. Best of luck!
