"We've worked with Mike twice now. He helped us with a short sale a few years ago, and four years after that he helped us buy our new home. Mike is very patient, always willing to answer all our questions and made the time to show us homes we wanted to see. He also referred us to a great lender. We highly recommend Mike to our friends looking to buy or sell a home."

Chris & Amelia L. Buyer

"Mike was our agent and he helped us close on a wonderful 'second/first' home. We weren't easy clients, moving our targeted neighborhood several times and we had changing priorities during this time, which I know is difficult to manage. But Mike was always friendly and accommodating, and willing to help with whatever we needed. And the home that we bought was only possible because of Mike's connections to the industry. We would not have made an offer on this home because the asking price was out of our comfort range and we thought they wouldn't take a lower bid, but Mike felt that the sellers would accept a bid in our comfort range based on his knowledge of the seller's agent and Mike's reputation as a closer, and he was right! We made a bid in our price range and it was accepted, and we closed escrow in less than a month. We (wife, 4 kids, and me) moved in a month ago, and are very happy with our new home! And we were very happy with Mike, and would recommend him without reser"

"Mike, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me become a first-time homeowner just in time for Christmas/New Years! From the first time we spoke on the phone, you were always so helpful, kept in close contact, and reassured me of all my questions. You inquired to find out exactly what I wanted and you found it! I felt taken care of and in good hands, as you were always looking out for my best interests. Especially when you made sure we wouldn’t be held responsible for any pending assessments – THANK YOU for making sure that was in the contract – 'Oh my goodness if it wasn’t!!' I’m sure a less competent realtor would’ve missed that. I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate your contributions to helping me buy my first home and I will recommend you to all of my friends & family with real estate needs."

Jason H. Buyer

"Mike had many challenges when signing on as my real estate agent. The property was almost uninhabitable. The tenant lived on the property for 35 years without making any improvements or making any effort to maintain the property. Because of the condition of the property, it was never listed. We did not feel that the property would qualify for a FannyMae/Freddie Mac loan and therefore we would have to find a cash buyer. The tenant was making it difficult to show the property because he was embarrassed to let anyone see the condition of the house and because he wanted time to approach family members to borrow money to buy the property. Even while the property was in escrow, Mike had to help vacate the tenant and communicate with me while I was out of the country. I had grown impatient and frustrated with the tenant since I took over the management of the property after my father's death. Mike was very professional and compassionate when dealing with me and the tenant. I think that the t"

Mark Nishi Seller

"My wife and I worked with Mike Sowell to purchase our new home and would highly recommend to anyone looking to buy/sell a home. We switched to working with Mike after we were unsatisfied with our first agent and I am really glad we did! Every phase of our home search and purchase has been seamless. Mike’s attention to detail, great follow-through, and clear and concise communication made all the difference in a very difficult buying market. He is honest, ethical, knowledgeable, astute, and an ultimate professional. Mike’s strategic decisions, negotiations, and advice made finding and buying our dream home a reality. We would highly recommend Mike Sowell to everyone."

Ivan & Christine N. Buyers

"Mike is an excellent estate agent. He helped my wife and I find the right first home! He was professional, patient, and pleasant to work with!"

Dean & Sandy Ho Buyers

"If I had to sum up my experience working with Mike Sowell in a word, it would be ‘perfect’! Mike, the amount of time and effort you put forth helping me find my beachfront property was staggering. I truly believe the commission was never a driving force with you, that you honestly wanted me to be in the perfect home."

Andrew K. Buyer

"Mike helped me purchase my first home for myself, my high school son, and toddler daughter. I can't begin to describe how thorough Mike is! Even now, after the transaction, Mike is still there for me. He is very honest, caring and knowledgeable in everything he did for me and I know he'll do the same for everyone else."

Monica Vaiz Buyer

"I am happy to say that from my first contact with Mike Sowell and throughout the process of listing and selling my home, Mike has been very professional and helpful. His expert knowledge and positive nature have made the entire experience and outcome one for which I am very grateful. Mike was excellent at keeping in contact with me and returned my phone calls and/or text messages in a very timely and efficient manner. Mike truly exceeded my expectations! Due to his efforts and negotiating, my home received eighteen offers within two weeks and well above my asking price. Additionally, Mike was also very exceptional in the manner in which he negotiated on my behalf and made sure I was protected throughout the transaction. I would highly recommend Mike to help you with your home sale. Please allow me to serve as a reference for him."

Anita Ballentine Seller

"My name is Joyce Brown and Mike just helped me get my home SOLD! I had my home listed with another agency for EIGHT months prior to meeting Mike. I had a very bad experience and working with Mike for the last three weeks has truly been a blessing. When I met Mike and had him over he made several suggestions to help make my home more desirable to prospective buyers. He was very patient, kind and courteous and communication with him was great throughout the transaction. The marketing he utilized... professional photographer, virtual tour, high-quality color flyers, etc., was phenomenal. He was also great at answering my phone calls and questions and getting back to me very efficiently. Mike was able to sell my home himself in ONLY 12 days with multiple offers for $10,000 over my asking price! I’m sure it’s obvious, I would absolutely recommend Mike to help you with your real estate needs. Please feel free to contact me with any questions."
