After a referral 12 years ago, Mike helped us buy our first house. We had such a great experience that time that we didn’t consider anyone else to help us sell and buy this time. Mike is very knowledgeable about the area and what the market is doing and that helped us sell quickly over asking price. Our house was listed for 36 hours; we received 13 offers, all but one over asking price! When hiccups occurred with inspections and appraisal, Mike was there to provide expertise and guidance to resolve the issues and keep the transactions on track and in our best interest. I would recommend him to anyone looking to sell or buy in the area.
Mike Galinac met with us went over our plans, revised them when the market was changing, and ultimately got us more than we thought possible. I don't know what more you could ask for in a realtor. We've done business with Mike in the past and will continue to recommend him to friends and neighbors.
Mike was incredibly helpful right from the beginning of ou first meeting. Once we locked down all of he specifics, Mike had us closing on our perfect first home within a month and a half! We would very highly recommend Mike Galinac and Century 21 to all of our friends and family. We are highly satisfied!
Mike provided excellent guidance on critical decisions. He always got back to my wife and me in a timely manner. Mike did not push to lower the price of out house. We would recommend him to anyone looking to sell their house.
Mike was great, did research on the market and delivered results.
This is the second time I've worked with Mike and he is an absolutely incredible agent. My first go around 9 years ago I was a first time home buyer and Mike made sure that I understood everything I needed to know as a first time buyer. Nine years later as a seller who was looking to sell and find a new place, Mike was right there every step of the way. He helped me understand the selling process, guided me on the right listing price for the area and type of home I was selling, made sure to be in constant contact with me for showings, offers, and all of the nuances in-between. And in the end not only did my home sell in less than 48 hours, we had multiple offers and ended up selling for over the initial asking price. I cannot say enough great things about Mike and the tireless work that he does. If you're looking for a personable agent who is going to be available at all hours of the day, answer all your questions, and help you understand the complex process of buying or selling real estate, you need not look further.
Mike is a thorough, knowledgeable and professional realtor. I appreciate his willingness to get the job done and meet his customers needs.
Mike Galinac came highly praised by the Elkins family and I can see why. Mike helps in all facets of the searching and buying process and really cared about what was best for me. I appreciated his attention to detail, knowledge of the area, and he even helped negotiate the price lower. All in all, Mike simplified the process of purchasing a home for me, a first time home buyer. Mike was great in all aspects. I will definitely come to him first for the next house I look to purchase.
Great experience every time. Mike is respectful, honest, and works hard to represent me as a client. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mike to friends, family, and even complete strangers.
Mike is a true real estate professional in every sense of the word. I depended on Mike's assistance in hiring contractors to prepare the house for sale. Mike actually handled the communication with the contractors during the house prep work.
I'd like to fill you in with how I came in contact with Mike 9 years ago. We were looking for a home as a newly married couple starting our professional and personal life's. Being in the mortgage business I knew how sometimes realtors can often not have best interest for their clients. I witnessed it and had doubts of even hiring a realtor. We decided (my wife and I) to search on our own. So we started on a Saturday and guess what? We found after looking at a handful of homes my original thought on realtors was looking to be true. The realtors really seemed to not be trying to sell the homes we were looking at in fact it was more of a sale on their services to us. House after house we looked at my wife and I were shocked at how many realtors would say things like "oh this is not the house for you- call me and I can help you". It wasn't until we came to a very unlikely home that was not anything we were interested in but we thought let's look around. Mike was there as the realtor for the open house. Most realtors we encountered were similar to walking into a certain furniture store in Michigan- on you the whole time. Mike however was not at all like that and kept his distance as we looked. We'd ask a few questions and was honest with his answers and even noted "you know you might not like the windows like this but for some people it works". He never stopped thinking of the client he was selling the house for and was always open and honest. We left the house and just as we thought the home was not for us. But we did gain something that day- I called Mike shortly after and asked if he would help us find a home and be our realtor. That day forward he's become a friend and someone we can trust to always consider for our realtor needs. We used him a second time when we purchased our new home (new construction) which is not always easy. Mike made it easy and helped us rent the home we just sold with you last week. He's helped my mother in law and is the first in mind when someone I care for ask me for a good realtor. Thank you Mike!
Mike was amazing and we always felt that we were in good hands. Even after the closing he has reached out to check in.
I really like Mike and will be recommending him in the future!
I have used J Michael Galinac multiple times and continue to be amazed at the level of service he provides. In our last transaction, we were dealing with a market well outside either of our current areas. He familiarized himself with all of the local customs, coordinated all of the activities, and made the long drives whenever needed. He truly goes above and beyond to work in his client's best interest.
Mike was an overall pleasure to work with. He is very genuine and down to earth. If a listing did not seem like a good fit, he would say so. He would not push me to buy just so he can make the sale. Mike was always looking out for my best interest and is very trustworthy. If something did not go as planned, Mike always had a few back up plans lined up just in case. I would highly recommend Mike to anyone who wants to find the perfect home in a timely manner.
Mike came highly recommended from other family members. Again, Mike was extremely helpful. Always got back to me quickly, and helped hit a tight closing date window. My lease was up on my apartment, and Mike helped find the right people to push the closing through, and we were able to do it in about 3 weeks. Mike was very knowledgeable of the market, understood I was a first time home buyer, and helped answer all of my questions. Mike also made it fun to go home hunting. Really enjoyed my time throughout this process thanks to Mike's support! Overall, I can't say enough nice things about Mike and the great service and support that was provided. Mike made the experience fun, while also being very professional. It was a great experience, and I will definitely recommend Mike to other friends and family when looking for a realtor.
We first met Mike Galinac when he helped us find our first home about 15 years ago. Even after moving several times outside the State, we kept the property. When the real state market improved in Michigan, it was a no brainer and we contacted Mike and asked him to represent us selling our property. Living outside the State, it was somewhat worrisome selling the property remotely; however, Mike made the whole experience easy enough for us. He quickly identify what improvements were needed, which contractors to use, and the process was even enjoyable. Mike was very honest with us since the very beginning and stated things as they were, and provided spot on recommendations that we followed without hesitation. Mike helped us buy our first house, and also helped us selling it. A complete cycle that only finished with a friendship for life and a great appreciation.
Mike came highly recommended by our sister-in-law. We couldn't have made a better choice. Mike is very process driven and we appreciated that immensely. There aren't enough superlatives to describe Mike's characteristics. He was simply the best! If there was a rating above excellent, we would choose that one for Mike.
Working with Mike was an absolutely pleasure. Mike is knowledgeable, professional and extremely easy to work with. Mike always made himself available to answer any and all questions or concerns that we had. He was there to guide us every step of the way. Mike restored my faith in realtors. With everything now said and done, I know there was no way we could have made it through this process without his guidance and expertise. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor.
Mike is AWESOME!!!! He's one of most Honest, Trustworthy, and Down to Earth person you'll ever meet. When I sold my first house (back in 2007/2009), it was the listing from Hell, most agents would have given up and went running for the hills, after the second offer fell through and the house prices were plummeting (from 110k to 30k). Not Mike, he was with us every step of the way, it took us almost two years, but Mike's perseverance made it all happen. I can't say it enough, Mike is simply the best!!! I always trust what Mike has to say, as he always has your best interest in mind! Every person I've recommended to Mike, has thanked me and told me how Mike was able to help them. To say I'd recommend Mike Galinac would be an understatement, I will always sing his praises and tell everyone I meet to go see Mike if you need help in the real estate market!
Mike was recommended to us by family as very knowledgeable and personable. He was great to work with.
Since this was our first home, we were novices. We have been renters for a while, so we still had that mind set of "oh hey, we have settle for a while" Mike changed our mind right away! We relied on Mike a lot to help us understand the house buying process. He was always very open and would speak to us truthfully. He would consider things we didn't, like re-sale, the neighborhood and if the house fit us. We had a few problems with purchasing our home, the inspection came up with things we didn't know about and Mike was there the whole time. He always knew when to give us information and was very well spoken and lovely to work with. In this very tough, TOUGH market, it was great to know we had Mike on our side to help us find the right home.
Mike was referred to me by a friend. I am a single mother and really was nervous about looking at homes. Mike really taught me a lot about what to look for when buying a home. Everything from foundations, to exterior issues and interior items to look at for major maintenance. I felt comfortable about the purchase in the end and very excited to move into the new home.
Mike is a fantastic broker. Very thorough and honest. I really enjoyed working with him the the sale of my old house and the purchase of my new house!
Mike Galinac and I go way back. He has sold houses for all of my friends and family. He has been so patient with me during this whole process. I have been looking for a house for 5+ years and there was not a time where I called Mike and he wouldn't answer the phone. Some brokers might have told me to go take a hike, but not Mike, he picked up the phone and talked about all of my options. We would joke throughout the years about me getting a house and how he would make it goal before he retired to find me my first home! I can tell you that I have nothing but great things to say about Mike and I will refer him to anyone I meet that needs a realtor. His level of knowledge and expertise on the house marketing was exactly what a first time home buyer needed. There were many times we walked into a house and he didn't hold back on telling me the absolute truth. " Matt, don't waste your time with this house, you can find one better, that fits your needs" I mean, that right there was something you rarely see. He could have sold me on any one of those houses, but he didn't and made sure I knew everything I needed to know. Mike will do anything he can to take good care of his clients, and has proven that to me!
