client love

From day one, he treated us like family, taking the time to guide us through the process with expertise and patience. Throughout the entire process, Mike demonstrated an exceptional level of expertise and knowledge of the local real estate market. He took the time to understand our needs, preferences, and budget. He patiently guided us through each step, leaving no question unanswered and ensuring we were well-informed at all times. One aspect that stood out was Mike’s unwavering dedication and commitment to finding us the right property. He listened attentively to our feedback after each home viewing, making adjustments to his recommendations as he honed in on exactly what we were looking for. His professionalism and positive attitude made house hunting an enjoyable experience, which was an added bonus! Mike’s personal touch and unwavering support made this journey truly memorable. Thank you, Mike, for your dedication and support in making our homeownership dreams a reality!

Ensuring we felt comfortable and supported every step of the way, Michael took on the unique and difficult challenge of helping me and my wife buy an investment property while living abroad. What promised to be a nightmare, Michael turned into a dream! He was tremendously kind and professional, going above and beyond at every opportunity. He was quick to view any home we expressed interest in, thoroughly documenting his time on site (sending videos and pictures) and provided invaluable feedback/insight after each visit. With a keen understanding of the market and knowledge that expands far beyond any agent we’ve worked with in the past (offering advice on general contracting, securing a lender, etc…), his expertise allowed us to feel confident throughout the buying process and beyond – he remains a trusted and valued advisor for us even after closing. Michael’s genuine commitment to his clients coupled with his mastery of real estate is rare. Without hesitation we would recommend him to anyone in search of buying or selling a home. Thanks a million, Michael!

We could not have been happier in our experience with Michael. We used Michael to purchase our home 4 years ago that he recently just listed for us, netting us $20k over list price with multiple offers on the first day. He also helped us in the purchase of our new home that we are very excited about. Michael gave us some insight to strengthen our deal as we knew we would be in a multiple offer situation in purchasing this home. We took his advice and added a couple things that strengthened our offer. We were able to come to terms with the seller and closed last week. The entire process of buying a new home and selling our current home could not have gone smoother. Michael has a very good understanding of the real estate market and is especially strong in his property valuations and his ability to get the best possible deal. He also has a plethora of contractor resources that came in very handy, we are using many of them in our current renovations. A major plus when you don’t know the local contractor market! Mike is a rockSTAR and would recommend him to anyone.

Mike has a unique combination of expertise, patience, energy and integrity. In a very difficult housing market, he was able to quickly identify listings that fit our needs so we could quickly jump on opportunities. He was always prepared with market data and suggestions for how to approach negotiations when we wanted to pursue a deal, and his suggestions directly lead to our family getting an amazing home in Denver. Mike was an expert through the entire process, from his knowledge of all Denver neighborhoods to consider, all the way through due diligence and closing when we needed recommendations on vendors to use in improving or maintaining our property. Mike is a true example of a realtor who brings a customer first attitude to his business.

Mike Watters is the best Real Estate agent I’ve worked with across a couple states and several agents! I’d work with him again in a second! His responsiveness and call back time was crazy good and his knowledge of the real estate world in Denver and the surrounding area was incredible! I felt very well cared for through the whole buying process!

Mike was great! Former contractor in the Denver metro area and that came in extremely handy when we were looking for a house with some projects to take on. Mike literally ‘knows a guy’ for every type of project you can imagine. Flooring…’know a guy.’ Landscaping…’know a guy.’ Framing…’know a guy.’ Use this guy!
