“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.”

“Mike was absolutely wonderful to work with! He was helpful, responsive, complete and thorough!!”

“We were extremely pleased with Mike Van Cleve. He had the house sold within 4 Hours of listing it, to a person who we felt would really appreciate the house. Couldn't be happier with our experience. Will recommend Mike to all our friends.”

“"I was thoroughly satisfied and got exactly what I needed with my new house. Great job, Mr. Van Cleve!!"”

“After numerous disappointing consults with other realtors in Peoria, Mike was a breath of fresh air. From Day 1, he remained in constant contact with my family and educated us through every step of our search for two homes simultaneously. Two homes, two families and multiple personalities. Mike was able to meet each one of us where we were and provided results much sooner than any of us could have anticipated. He treated my family as though we were part of his. Mike is personable, genuine, and knows his field well. Professional”

“Very helpful in all of the home buying process. Able to be flexible and dedicated to solving any issues that came up. I think 'Mike' did an outstanding job, but more cookies wouldn't hurt. Maybe even some oatmeal raisin.”

“The experience was great. Mike was very professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. He ended up showing us quite a few homes short of a year long. Eventually we came across our perfect home. It being a foreclosure, we were not sure of how the process would be, but it went very smooth. When we needed something from Mike, he responded quickly.”

“Mike was very helpful and prompt about returning our phone call or e-mail. He worked very hard to get answers for us as we looked at homes to purchase. We enjoyed working with him and would like to use his talents in the future! Mike was very friendly and knowledgeable about surrounding areas. We liked that we could express our opinion to him and he also would voice his own opinion. This process was more like building a friendship then just selling/buying a house.”

“We were privileged to work with Mike Van Cleve during the process of our first home purchase. He was very flexible with his schedule and was able to show us homes in the evenings, rain or shine (a couple of times we were out there in pretty snowy weather). He was able to meet us in our home, which made life much easier for us with twin babies. He often stayed later in the night to advise us about the home buying process. He's very knowledgeable. If he didn't know something, he would contact the right source and find out quickly. He stayed on top of tasks and was available at any time to answer additional questions or concerns. He updated us frequently, even when things were status quo. We really appreciated his sound advice. At times when realtors often push buyers to go above their price range, Mike listened carefully to what we wanted and got us something within our price range. Overall, he made the process quite easy by staying on top of every step in a very expedient manner, always being available and flexible, being knowledgeable and using all his connections and sources to answer any questions he didn't have the answer to, being open and honest with us, and getting us exactly what we were looking for without sacrificing our budget. He also went above and beyond by being a generally kind and pleasant guy who was nice to our kids and baked us amazingly delicious cookies on a couple occasions, for no other reason than to show us he appreciated us trusting him with our business. After we closed on our house, he even gave us a complimentary gift of lawn care, which came in very hand. We also called him with a question and he went out of his way to contact someone for us, even though technically, the process was done, and he really wasn't obligated to do any more for us. That's what makes him special though. He's a very thoughtful, kind, knowledgeable, and honest businessman, and I would highly recommend him to anyone, as well as use his services again in the future.”

“After numerous disappointing consults with other realtors in Peoria, Mike was a breath of fresh air. From Day 1, he remained in constant contact with my family and educated us through every step of our search for two homes simultaneously. Two homes, two families and multiple personalities. Mike was able to meet each one of us where we were and provided results much sooner than any of us could have anticipated. He treated my family as though we were part of his. Mike is personable, genuine, and knows his field well. Professional”

“Mike was very prompt on returning my calls, emails, and texts. If I would have had a random thought at 2am and sent him a text, I bet he would have replied within 5 or 10 minutes. I wouldn't suggest it though! Mike did not force us into selling or buying a house. He looked out for the best interest of his clients. He was very thorough on explaining things. With his architectural background, he was able to provide insight on structural questions or ideas that we had. Mike always had a smile on his face, even after we had scheduled and rescheduled and rescheduled appointments all on the same day. Oh yea, not to forget, Mike makes THE best cookies...ever! We might have to call him up every now and then to make sure his cookies are still tasty.”

“He was very helpful and explain everything to you. Very very informative. Very friendly, kept in contact with us, did what we asked without hesitation when looking for our home. plus the cookies were great.”

“Mike is extremely service oriented and full of integrity. We are relocating from overseas and we had one week to find a home. Mike devoted the entire week to us and helped with the entire process, even scheduling all of our school visits. Mike completely took care of us and we would highly recommend him.”

“Mike was a fantastic realtor and helped us find a home that was right for us both financially and aesthetically. We both highly recommend working with him.”

“This is my first home purchase and I was so pleased with Mike Van Cleve. He took his time with me and did not push me what so ever. He goes above and beyond a real estate agent job description. I have not only a great home, but a new friend! Thank you Mike!”

“As first time homebuyers, Mike was a tremendous help to us throughout our selection process and purchase. He was clear, concise, and genuinely honest with us in all aspects of our journey to our new home purchase. He was able to answer or quickly respond to any and all questions that we had about the purchasing process, (we had a LOT! ) as well as lending his architectural knowledge to answer many of our questions regarding potential renovations and changes to the houses we looked in to. Mike is a breath of fresh air in a business full of people looking to make a dime off of anyone. He gives me hope that there are still genuine people left in this world. Highly recommend to anyone.”

“This year, I purchased a home from Mike Van Cleve. He made this process easy and flexible. I chose Mike, because he is a close personal friend. What amazed me was his excellence in customer service, professionalism, and flexibility. From uploading games for my little one on his iPad (for those long home inspections) to scheduling the home inspections, I could not have done this without him. If I had to buy or list a home, I would only go with Mike. He was supportive, informative, caring, and understanding.”

“Mike Van Cleve was great to work with. He was very quick to respond to all of our questions/requests. Mike did a great job in making our home purchase as smooth and stress free as possible. Mike was very professional, yet fun to work with. I will be recommending him to my friends when they decide to purchase or sell a house.”

“Mike was the utmost professional throughout the entire process of us selling our home. We had some hurdles in negotiations with some inspection issues, and he maintained high integrity throughout. He continued to guide us and keep us moving forward. Mike will be highly recommended to anyone i know looking to buy/sell. He was hard working, knowledgeable, and thorough. The one negative thing: if you eat one of Mike's cookies, you will become addicted (and probably eat the whole box that he brings you). Best.cookies.ever.”

“"We (my wife and I) were helping my mother sell her home. Mike Van Cleve was very patient explaining the contract and helped her to understand other things that she had questioned.

We would recommend Mike Van Cleve to anyone wanting a knowledgeable and "down to earth" real estate agent."”
