Mike Cooper assisted me and my wife in selling our home, searching for a home, and purchasing a home. I researched several realtors on the Internet and decided to meet with Mike after seeing the great reviews on him. We met and almost immediately decided to go with Mike to sell our home. Mike was not just out to get another client or make another sale. Mike genuinely wanted to hear want we wanted out of the sale and gave us honest answers back. We ended up selling our house for $10,000-$15,000 dollars higher than the average home sale in our neighborhood. ( We may of even got higher than that if it wasn't for the foreclosures in our area)
Mike assisted us with looking for a house and due to his background in construction, Mike was able to give us some insight into possible issues / or benefits in a house , when we would visit potential houses. Mike would pick up on things in a house, such as work done in a house without a permit,that most other realtors may not clue into.
While our house was under contract we located a house we liked on Movoto.com. Mike quickly got us a visit into the house and assisted with placing a contract on the house. The contract price Mike negotiated on the house was a great price.
Mike guided us through some issues we had with the delays in the selling of our old house , which also delayed the buying of our new house. Mike also helped out greatly when the house we were trying to purchase failed the well water test two times. The test should of been completed by the sellers realtor, but instead of Mike fighting over who's responsibility it was, Mike took it upon himself to shock the well with bleach , clear the lines , and get a good inspection of the water , so that closing would not be delayed any longer. Mike spent several hours doing this, over several days , to get this accomplished. Mike went far above and beyond what he was expected to do as a realtor.
Mike also introduced us to a great closing lawyer named Vondy. Mr Vondy handled the closing for the house we sold. Mr Vondy located several issues in the documents from the buyers closing agency that tried to have us pay fees to them that we were not responsible for paying. Mr Vondy had the fees removed and made sure the documents were cleared of errors. We will definelty use Mr Vondy again!!!
Selling and buying a house is a stressful situation, especially when there are delays which are out of your control; but Mike guided us through and kept in constant contact with us throughout the process.
We also appreciated Mike's Christ like attitude through out the process. Mike doesn't just say he is a Christian; but lives it out in his life.
Thanks Mike , from the entire Schraff Family.
