When choosing a real estate professional...
Consider the satisfaction of past clients and interview more than one to ensure a good personality fit for you. Don't assume the most visible agents are doing everything right or that they will do the best job for you - ask around!
I am very proud of my history of repeat clients and new client referrals and am happy to share contact information of past clients for you to check out anytime. To me - that it is the most indicative proof that I am doing things right.

Leanna and Steve M., I have so apprecaited your friendliness and professionalism. You really helped us get clear on what we wanted and made the searching and buying process process do-able. Thank you for being so approachable, patient, flexible and kind.
Mary and Reid C. - We were not sure about whether it was the right time to buy a house, let alone even look for one. As we considered what was best for our family, whether to renovate, where to buy if we did start looking, we approached Mike to check out a few houses on the market we had seen on line. With so much to consider - location, timing, market pressures, buying, selling, listing, and the fact the rest of our busy lives had to continue amidst all of this - what we valued most about Mike was his pace, patience, integrity and wisdom from his years of experience.
The professionalism that Mike brings to his role as a Realtor comes foremost from his character and the values he lives by: integrity and compassion. His years in real estate, mortgage and banking is integral to every part of the buying/selling process. Sometimes when you see a new space, you want to just jump at the opportunity. By understanding what we needed, Mike was able to provide a balanced approach - sometimes even slowing us down to consider all options and the best value - but then being incredibly efficient and quick when we needed to act. We often said to one another "Are we Mike's only clients?" because of the attention to us, attention to detail in communications, flexibility and wisdom that was specific to our requests.
Integrity, in a field of work that is so full of quick sells and large amounts of money, is the value that we appreciated the most about Mike as we trusted him to help us make wise decisions about the largest asset in our lives. The skills required in a trusted realtor are not few and are so essential for an excellent experience that will mark the next chunk of your life and the lives of those you love the most. We cannot recommend Mike Thompson highly enough!
Kristen L. said... "Mike was our realtor this summer when we were selling our home and buying a new home. I can' recommend Mike highly enough! Throughout the process he provided extremely helpful advice on the shifting housing market, and provided excellent options for financing, inspections and legal professionals. Mike is exceptionally personable and did a great job highlighting the assets of our home for sale and maximizing showings. He also diligently found new homes for us to view, sticking closely to our criteria and wasting little time on unsuitable options. Our situations was more complex and emotionally charged than some, and Mike navigated all of it with a high degree of professionalism and tact - ensuring all parties were heard and represented. Working with Mike has reminded me of the value of a good realtor when buying/selling such high value assets. Thanks very much Mike and well done!"

He has provided guidance to my family on big real estate decisions and his advice has proven to be very valuable. He is also very passionate about providing exceptional service and based on our experience I am very happy to recommend him."
Pily and Richard H., "I totally recommend Mike as a knowledgeable, professional, and non pushy real estate agent. His advice and comments were always objective and timely and his experience gave me the peace of mind with the decision. I am so happy we worked with him on the purchase of a property which turned out far better than the one I initially planned to get. I have no hestiation saying Mike puts his clients interest before his own unlike many in the profession. My husband and I will use Mike again should we have any real estate needs."

He is professional and very easy to deal with. Do yourself a favour and get in touch with him for all your real estate needs."
