"In November of 2008, we decided to make Michael Jones our realtor of choice for the listing of our home. He worked closely with us on assessing the value of our home and determining what updates needed to be done to make our house show worthy. Once we had done our part, Michael put together an aggressive marketing strategy to make sure that information about our home was successfully reaching potential buyers. He developed a website specifically for our house, mailed out a countless postcards, successfully conducted several open houses, and actively participated in several showings. He even established a separate website that allowed us to instantly read and react to the feedback of prospective buyers who had visited our home.
However, Michael proved to be most instrumental once we had actually received an offer. He was extremely knowledgeable about our market and a fierce negotiator. He understood what our goals were financially and made sure that we received the best price for our home.
We were so thrilled with his performance that we immediately asked him to represent us again in the purchase of our next home. Once again, Michael performed like a star. He honestly assessed every potential home that we saw, telling us the pros and cons of each, and provided pertinent background information regarding the neighborhood, school district, and taxes.
We can proudly say, that Michael helped us to find our dream home. Once we found our house, he helped manage the closing for the sale of our old house within a few days of the closing of the purchase of our new house. He even went so far as to refer us to local movers and coordinate everything so that we could move directly from one house to the other, without ever having to pay for storage or any overnight stay at a hotel.
Needless to say, we highly recommend Michael! His passion and professionalism are second to none. If you are looking for a realtor in Columbus, you will be hard pressed to find someone with more passion, professionalism, honesty, and integrity than Michael Jones."
