I have enjoyed the opportunity to work with many Buyers and Sellers. I would like the opportunity to assist you in your next real estate transaction. Here are some reviews from past clients:
-We worked with Mike both to buy our home in 2010 and to sell it in 2013. He was phenomenal both times. When we bought our house, we were overseas, and Mike took the time to take video walk-throughs of the homes we were interested in, including video of driving down the street in the local neighborhood. He also put us in touch with neighbors that he had worked with, who were able to give us unbiased reports on the neighborhood. We bought the house site-unseen from abroad and could not have been happier. Mike is very high-tech, and we were able to do all our document signing electronically. We talked over Skype several times, and he was always available, but we did all the paperwork over email and his secure document portal. No faxing or scanning required.
When we sold our home, Mike was honest and thoughtful about the pricing and sales strategy, diligent about hosting open houses, and reliable in advising us on offers and the strength of potential offers. We would recommend Mike to anyone looking in the greater Leavenworth/Lansing area and beyond. Tessa and Josh H – Buyers and Sellers
-Mike's real estate experience is without reproach. His professional attitude about making things happen during our home buying experience was awesome!!!! We would recommend Mike Nielsen where ever you may need a realtor. Paula and Frederick S - Buyers
-From the beginning, my circumstances were unique at best- we sent house scouts to meet with Mike while we were still in Hawaii. His customer service with them was greater than what we could have wished for in an agent. When we finally arrived in the area and decided to purchase a house before starting a three week leave, Mike assured us all of the paperwork could be done over the internet. Two and a half weeks later, we had a VA loan approved, and were ready to close. We moved in and were still one month away from having our first child. Mike is responsive, technologically savvy, and treated us as friends, not just a partner in business. Thanks Mike! Steve N - Buyer
-Mike helped me sell my home and find the perfect new home for me. His comunication was great, he was always available and very patient, showing me homes until we found the right one. I liked the ability to sign paperwork electronically and how easy he made the selling/buying process. Tracey W - Buyer
-This was my first real estate transaction in over 20 years and how times have changed. Mike did an excellent job working through the whole process with me. He was always available to discuss any issues and take me back through several homes multiple times before I made my decision. His communication, coordination and attention to detail was outstanding! Thanks Mike! Betty K – Buyer
-Mike gave us great service. Showed us a home not on our list that we wound up buying, because he understood our list of wants and needs and has great local knowledge. Helped us get it for significantly less than it was listed - a good negotiator. When we had a financial glitch, Mike found a banker to work with us. He stayed in constant touch and promptly returned any missed phone calls. Mike is up on the latest technology and so we had an electronic document drop box where we could review and sign things - no time wasted going to the office and made it all happen much quicker. Plus it made a good record as we went along. Mike has been great about following up in the year since we bought the house and provides trustworthy recommendations for local tradesmen when we want to change or repair things. Bottom line - I recommend him to coworkers that I have to see every day - true proof I know he won't let me down. Call him and you will be really glad you did. Andy E – Buyer
-As a first-time home buyer, this process could have been daunting, confusing, and stressful. I feel very blessed to have met and worked with Mike. He's been an invaluable resource to me throughout this journey-- knowledgeable, patient, responsive and ALWAYS available. His follow-up is exceptional! Mike really took the time to understand my tastes and preferences, and I appreciated his honest assessment of each listing we saw. Knowing the pros AND cons of each property made it easier to make the most informed decision.
I really lucked out with Mike. Not only did he find me the perfect home. He found me the neighborhood. I'm all settled now, and couldn't be happier. Highly-recommended. Amy M – Buyer
-We listed our Mother's house with Mike after both trying to sell on our own and with a local Real Estate company. Mike initially provided detailed analysis of the market, in order to help us price the home correctly. once listed, he marketed the house both locally and electronically much more aggressively than the prior agent. He also gave us weekly updates and immediate feedback after showings. The house sold very quickly as a result of Mike's exceptional marketing & pricing strategy. He was a true professional throughout the process and we would highly recommend him as a trustworthy, hard working, real estate professional. Tera C – Seller
-Mike was extremely easy to communicate with. He responds to emails and phone calls quickly. He also has wonderful knowledge of the local market. He answered all of our questions on the spot, and as first time home buyers, we had a lot of questions.The whole process of buying a home was made easier and more convenient because Mike has a high level of technical support. He utilizes e-signatures/electronic documents so that the paperwork can be taken care of conveniently and quickly. In addition, Mike is pretty patient. We were looking for a certain kind of house in a certain school district. It was wonderful having Mike do the leg work for us. Most importantly, we would definitely ask Mike to be our agent if we were buying or selling a home. Lynn I – Buyer
-Mike provides an amazing service. He is not only a great realtor, that takes exceptional pride in his job, he is a close friend and confidant that sold me my first home! If you're looking for a realtor that is going to treat you like a person and take the time to educate and guide you through the home buying process then look no further! Thanks Mike! Jonas A – Buyer
-Mike Nielsen was a 'God Send' to Me, while Recently Purchasing a Home in Leavenworth.. His Integrity, Thoroughness, Patience, & Attention to Detail - Define Him.. He Doesn't Make Promises He Can't Keep - His Word is His Bond.. He Doesn't 'Disappear' after You Buy.. (if You have questions - he'll find answers) He (even) goes 'above & beyond' is 'unexpected' ways - like donating money to meaningful charities - in the 'Buyers Name' (in my case) &/or (surprise) Housewarming Gifts.. I feel (truly) 'Blessed' to have Mike as My Realtor.. You will too! Ernie K – Buyer
-Mike is very professional and knowledgeable. I have bought several properties over the years and used various real estate agents. Mike is definitely the best agent we have used. He provides top notch service.
Jen W – Buyer
-We contacted Mike about purchasing a home recently in the Leavenworth area. Mike was quick to respond and was able to locate several homes for us to look at, keeping our criteria in mind. He devoted several hours to showing us houses and was very professional. I would recommend him to anyone! Ruth A – possibly moving to the area
-I contacted Mike before moving to KS from TX. he sent us lots of homes to look at, so we could narrow which ones we wanted to see in person when we moved here. The day after we got here, he met with us...setting aside most of his day to show us as many homes as we wanted. He even took us around the town so we would be familiar with the area we would be living in, and what was close by as far as shopping, groceries ect. We put a contract on the home that first night we went looking and Mike was helpful through the whole process! Even after the purchase he would check up on us to see how things were going.
In 2009 when we decided we wanted to look for a new home, Mike was our FIRST call! We were a little worried with having to sell our current home with the market the way it was, but knew it was a good time to upgrade. Mike was so helpful in us finding another home and when our old home didn't sell he took over as a property manager so we could hold on to it until the market gets better and wouldn't have to lose money on a sale. We have been very pleased with Mike as an agent and a property manager...when it is a good time to sell our old home, Mike will definitely be the one who represents us as an agent. Mike goes above and beyond as an agent!! Linda C – Buyer and Seller
-Mike Nielsen goes above and beyond when it comes to service. We met Mike in 2009 online. We told him that we were flying in for the weekend and would like to view homes. Mike dedicated the entire weekend to us and showed us more than twenty homes. He even took us for a tour of the local area, showed us some of the historical sites and shopping centers. By our last day we found a home we loved, but it was owned by the builder and not for sale. Mike convinced the builder to sell the home and he negotiated a fair price. Mike kept in contact with us through the entire process, emailing and digitally sending documents. He was with us through the entire process. Mike also connected us with an agent in another state to assist us in selling our previous home. Mike researched the agent and contacted him prior to recommending him....and it was great recommendation as that agent had our house sold within three days of being on the market. Mike continues to stay in contact after the sale and occassionally stops by to say hello. Mike cares about his clients prior to and after the sale. This was the fourth home purchase we've made and it was the smoothest, most hassle free real estate transaction we've experienced. I would recommend Mike Nielsen to anyone looking to buy or sell. Darren and Brandy H – Buyer
-Mike was the third agent we listed our house with. The other agents said they had "tried everything". He performed a very competitive market analysis and performed a targeted advertising campaign, in addition to the traditional signage and open houses. Our buyer actually came from another state and payed full asking price (it sold for the same price the other agencies had it listed for) within the first 30 days on the market. Mike then helped us find a house, within the closing period and negotiated us an awesome price on that house. He made a stressful time so much better. We own a parcel of land that we currently (07/2011) have listed with him. He has always been polite, responsive and is an excellent real estate agent and a very nice person. I would not hesitate to use him to buy or sell anything I own.
Kathleen M – Seller and Buyer
-We used Mike Nielsen as a buyer's agent to purchase our house in Leavenworth, KS in February 2010. The house was under construction and we put the contract on the house without ever setting eyes on the property due to us still living in Germany. Everything went very smoothly. When we had to unexpectedly move, we used Mike Nielsen as our property manager, and the property has been managed for six months now with him. Very versatile and competent agent. Heidi J – Buyer
