I was moving to the area from the East Coast and had only a short amount of time to find a home. Mike was very responsive to my emails and asked me pointed questions to help him refine my home search. He sent me numerous listings before my visit to look at houses. I came to the area for two days with the intent to find a home and make an offer. Mike showed me more than 20 listings in two days so I could see all the options, and I did indeed make an offer on one of the homes during that trip. He walked me through the whole process through closing, answered all my questions, and provided expert guidance along the way.

I was referred to Mike Staton by my USAA homebuyer network. After my very positive experiences working with Mike I have no regrets and would definitely have picked him as I will again in the future.
My home searching challenge was multifaceted; I lived 6 hours away; had zero knowledge of the area; had discerning tastes and a limited budget.
Mike listened attentively, asked the right questions to narrow the search and communicated clearly, promptly and effectively through phone, email and texts.
Mike's home tours were informative and efficient. He was helpful with his suggestions and observations so that I felt he was truly looking out for my best interests.
His 3,2,1 method made deciding simple. When we stepped into house number four of a possible nine showings we knew it bumped all before it out of the running.
The processes from that point and up to closing were handled very professionally and SO much better than I had ever experienced with other home purchases. Mike calculated a surprisingly great offer and negotiated it with ease. Closing was a breeze.
I have since recommended Mike to others and will definitely be contacting him again when the need arises.
I feel I have gained more than a great house, neighborhood and new hometown; I have also gained a friend. I enjoy bumping into him around town and chatting about life.
Here's an example of his philosophy: when I complemented him on his attentiveness and the courtesy extended in what was not a large sal, he shared his father's wisdom, always treat the $40,000 customer the same as the $400,000 one.
Great guy!

Mike was a great help in staging our home for sale and we were able to sell quickly. His guidance and support were quite beneficial in our success to not only sell the home but at a price we were quite happy with.

Overall, my wife and I had an excellent experience working with Mike. We were incredibly impressed with the amount of time he took to ensure our home was well prepared for listing. Mike takes significant pride in the photos he uses to list his home. I was truly amazed at his experience and felt the extra time he took led to such a quick sale for our home. Mike was very candid throughout the process and guided us through a couple of difficult decisions that had to be made. He represented us and our interests like a true professional and built a trusting relationship.

Mike was very helpful. I lived some distance from the property being sold and he volunteered to meet contractors, etc., so that I would not have to make the trip. He very helpful in identifying items that needed to be done to expedite the selling of the property. I would definitely use him in future real estate sales or purchases. When my in-laws were going to sell their primary residence, they chose Mike based upon how he handled my property.

We worked with Mike in the Summer of 2015 to buy and sell our home. He is very approachable and friendly, and we felt comfortable with him right away. Mike knew the market extremely well and gave us invaluable advice about the timing of bulling/selling. We made a quick decision that we wanted to place an offer on a home, and he worked quickly to put together a very competitive offer. Mike was quick to communicate with us throughout the process, regardless of time or day or method (phone, text, or email). When it came to selling our home, he gave us good advice about how to get it ready (what we needed to do, what we didn't need to do) and we found ourselves accepting a offer within two weeks of marketing the home. We accepted an offer very close to asking price and he worked to make sure we understood why certain offers were better than others.

We had the best possible experience with buying/selling our home and Mike was a huge part of that. He is professional, responsible, responsive, and a great guy. It was a pleasure working with him!

Wonderful to work with. Helped with every question along the way. Was quick to get appointments set up to look at the homes. Very straight forward with details about the different properties.

Mike was fabulous throughout our whole house hunting experience! He was very knowledgeable about the area and all the processes and details in all things real estate. Mike is very easy to talk to and was willing to listen in any situation to our questions and concerns. Our experience was two-fold in that he was assisting us to sell our current home and also helping us to find a new home that suited all our wants and needs in a new area in which we were not very familiar. He must have shown us hundreds of homes in our hunt and never waivered. We genuinely could not have asked for a better agent to help us in our process.

Mike was so very helpful in helping us find our home. I highly recommend his services. I told him a few basics that we were looking for in a home and he came up with several for us to see. He spent time with us in each house, let me ask a million questions, and met with us several times until we found the right home for us. He made what can be a daunting task easy and enjoyable.
