“Great experience!!! Buying a home is a very involved process and can be daunting. Mike, Jacob and all on his team are exceptional! They are masters of their field and genuinely great people. I plan on referring others to work with them and appreciate all of their insight, hard work and patience.”

“"Mike is amazing! He helped me make my dreams come true with a home I love. He did not push me to the top of my budget. He listened, supported and made it happen."”

He helped make my dreams come true...

“I had a great experience with this team! I had a bunch of questions and all of them were explained in ways that made sense to me. As a first-time home buyer, working with this team significantly decreased my stress about the situation. Mike and Jessica are so professional, friendly, and just overall great to work with. I would definitely recommend this team to anyone who needs a real estate agent.”

“Really enjoyed working with Mike Van Cleve. He went above and beyond to find me exactly what I wanted. I buy single family houses and rentals, will use him in the future, and recommend him to others.”

“"Mike was very knowledgeable about markets and real estate in general. He worked hard to help us prepare our home for sale in an economic manner and even pitched in some labor. We had an offer in-hand after 1 week for full asking price."”

“Mike was wonderful. I would recommend him to anyone. He did a great job. He was helpful, friendly, and understanding.”
