Tell us about your experience with Michael Lamartina

  • Michael listed and sold my home

      Mike is honest and cares about his clients. Buying and selling a home can get very personal and he under and will work at whatever pace you need. We have used him twice now and have recommended him to our friends. He isn't just trying to sell you a house, he wants you to have a place you will be happy with and make it your home. When we found houses we wanted to walk through, he let us get our impressions of the house and then walked us through it explaining good/bad of what he saw. My family has been blessed to know Mike Lamartina.

    • Michael showed me homes

        He will help you find what you want, and he points out things you might miss.

      • Michael listed and sold my home

          If it wasn't for Mike, I don't think we would have sold our home & been able to purchase our villa. He even came to our home when the electricity went out after a tornado to let me in to my home!

        • Michael helped me buy a home

            Michael was wonderful. We would highly recommend him for anyone looking to buy or sell a home. We moved from out of state and our closing date changed several times due to our out of state home sale. Michael was patient thorough out the whole process and even provided support on this end with our out of state sale. When and if we sell Michael will be our realtor.

          • Michael helped me buy a home

              Knowledgeable and insightful with regards to homes and pointing out potential issues that could be harmful to the buyer.

            • A friend of mine referred me to Mike Lamartina and my wife and I really appreciate his approach and his results. My family (wife and 2 young children under 4) was moving back to Missouri, after being out of state for 10 years, in late October and were moving into my wife's mothers basement until we could find a house. Needless to say, we were hoping to find the right home quickly. I almost went with a random agent who happened to ask for my business, but my friend convinced me to let him hook me up with someone because he sold insurance to several of the Real Estate groups and could find me someone who would be best for me. We talked about that fact that I wanted someone who would be aggressive in negotiating and who would move quickly. My friend talked to the people he knew and after speaking to several of the top Real Estate performers in the area, he recommended Mike. Now, if you are like me you might say "what do I care if my agent is a 'top performer'?" My experience with Mike Lamartina proved exactly why. In my first conversation with Mike, we discussed all of the tools, I could use before I moved to get together a list of potential properties that we would want to see. And since I told him we wanted to hit the ground running, he set aside my first 2 days after arriving to see as many houses as possible. I did not ask him to set aside 2 full days to look at houses, with a pro like Mike, you get someone who listens and he suggested that so we could see a lot of places right away to narrow down what we were looking for quickly and hopefully find the right place quickly like we wanted. We saw 19 houses those first 2 days and Mike quickly picked up on what we did and didn't like. I was very pleased with his approach in that he allowed us to do the looking around and evaluating without trying to color our opinions. The 2nd day included a few places he thought might peak our interest and he was spot on. And by the end of the second day it seemed as though he could guess exactly what we would like and not like about a particular house. Mike also had great knowledge about all aspects of a home. I learned a lot about foundations (and potential problems with them), types of roofs, deck materials, etc. because Mike (as I later learned) tries to always be at the inspections of homes he is helping someone buy and in doing so has paid attention to the good and bad things that one will find in any given home. We wanted the right home quick and with Mike's help we found the perfect home for us and had an offer on it within a week of my arrival back in Missouri. In negotiations, I felt like Mike was a true partner working in my best interest to get the deal I wanted. He listened to our preferences, shared his suggestions, and every step of the negotiation process was something that Mike, my wife and myself felt was the best course of action before we moved forward. I can't say enough about what a professional Mike Lamartina is and how important having a professional like Mike is when you buy or sell a house. Thanks again Mike!

              - Mike was a true partner working in my best interest
            • My husband and I asked Mike to help us buy our first home. Mike treated us like family. He was very welcoming, friendly, and easy to work with. He listened to our needs and was very patient with my husband and myself as we searched for new place. As first time buyers, Mike was great about explaining the process for buying a home, and was very supportive in helping us make our decision. We looked in St. Charles and Maryland Heights, and Mike was very knowledgeable of the areas that were some what new to us. He was excellent in helping us negotiate a price that we felt comfortable with. I am so glad we used Mike to help us find our new home. We are so happy with our new place. I would highly recommend Mike to help you find your new home.

              - Treated us like family
            • Mike was extremely helpful in helping us find a new home in St. Charles due to a job relocation. He was very knowledgeable about the area. Only having two days to find a house, he zeroed in on exactly what we were looking for. It could have been a very stressful situtation, but with Mike's guidance and assistance the process went very smooth. We really appreciated his expertise.

              - two days to find a house
            • Mike is extremely knowledgable about the housing market and was spot on with what price we would get for our home. With his advice on what we needed to do to have the house list ready and with the listing price, we were able to sell our home quickly. Comparable homes in the subdivision listed with other agents were on the market for many months and still never sold. When looking for our new home, he always fit time in his schedule to show homes when we wanted to see them. When we found the new house and put a contract on it, he helped us get exactly what we wanted in the negotiations. Mike is very professional and personable. Anyone looking to buy or sell a home, I would highly recommend Mike to get the job done.

              - knowledgable
            • Mike was awesome! He gave us great advice how to make our home more desirable. He took the time to take good pictures which was helpful in selling. Our home sold in only three days. It took us a few months to find a new home, because the market was slim. He would take us to look at homes of interest as soon as they came on the market. If he was not available he had his assistant take us so we wouldn't miss any opportunities. We looked at several homes over a few months, but he never pressured us or made us feel like an inconvenience. He was honest when a home wasn't good. The house we purchased had several offers, but Mike's experience gave us the extra edge and they chose our contract

              - Mike's experience gave us the extra edge..
            • Mike was sincerely responsive, understanding and patient, but more importantly extremely knowledgeable on the market, process and my neighborhood. He assisted me and worked with me every step of the way - from our initial meeting through to closing.

              - Very responsive
            • My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Mike Lamartina during a very exciting time in our lives. He came highly recommended to us, and after working with him I could see why! I would recommend Mike to anyone that is looking to purchase or sell their current home. Mike is extremely knowledgeable, very reliable, and deep down wants to help you find the perfect home for you and your family. I am a very impatient person with lots of questions and Mike always answered my questions thoroughly and made sure I understood his responses. He also made himself available anytime I wanted to see a home, even if it were very short notice. During our home buying process, I had a friends that had been trying to sell their home for months with no luck. I recommended to them calling Mike and making the switch with agents, a week later their home was sold! There is no doubt in my mind that I will continue to work with Mike and continue recommending all of our friends and family in the future. It was a pleasure to have worked with him!

              - Highly recommend Mike
            • After meeting Mike for the first time I knew he was the agent for me. He came prepared with all the answers to my questions and is extremely knowledgeable in his field. Mike will make sure you are comfortable and understand any questions with the paperwork, offers and the closing process. Mike was always very responsive to calls and emails. After only a week on the market, we had two offers!I would highly recommend Mike as a Listing Agent.

              - always prepared
            • Working with Mike Lamartina and his team was a great experience. They responded to our questions promptly and walked us through the entire process of home buying. This was not our first home purchase and I was pleased how often we saw Mike and his associate, Sydnea.Touchette throughout the time between our first call and closing. I would not hesitate to recommend Mike Lamartina for your next home sale or purchase.

              - Great experience
            • My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Mike and his team while selling our home. It had been on the market with another agent for five months and we weren't receiving any offers. Close friends of ours recommended Mike to us and as soon as we met him we knew he would take care of us. He treated us and our home with the utmost respect while ensuring we understood the steps he was taking in listing our home and why. Within two weeks of listing we had an accepted offer and closed the following month! Emails and phone calls were always answered the same day and often times within the hour. Mike's assistant Sydnea was always available as well and only added to the service they provided us with. We will certainly be using Mike and his team for our home buying services in the future and would recommend him to our closest friends and family knowing he will take care of them as he did us

              - simply amazing
            • Mike went above and beyond as a buyer's agent for us. We were selling a house out of state and had to do the closing electronically and by Fed Ex. Since we were first time home sellers, Mike helped us through the process even though it was not his job. Our bank recommended Mike Lamartina as one of their preferred agents, but you sometimes wonder how that will work out, because our selling agent was also recommended by our bank and these two agents could not have been more different. His responsiveness was impeccable which was important since we had to do most of our communications from our previous state. His assistant, Sydnea was also excellent. If Mike could not get back to us immediately (which was seldom) Sydnea was always available to show us a house, answer questions or get paperwork signed. As an active duty military member, moving across states in stressful enough without having to buy and sell a house. Mike was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. His recommendations for services we would require were excellent. He went to bat for us in the negotiation process several times. He was very patient and understanding and listen to our needs and concerns. Hopefully we never have to sell a home or move again, but if I needed to do so, I would choose Mike Lamartina again and would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

              - I would choose Mike again!
            • Mike was great to work with! He really knew his stuff, didn't waste our time and always got back to us as soon as he could. We felt comfortable with him even when it came to the though stuff, he really had our back. We have already recommended some of our friends as well!

              - Really had our back
            • This was our first home buying experience and he was very helpful in guiding us through the process and answering all of our questions along the way. The home we bought had multiple offers and his recommendations helped us place the successful bid. After the home inspection turned up some relatively minor defects, he made recommendations on what to ask for and pushed my wife and myself to ask for more repairs than we initially planned.

              - A man on your side
            • Mike was wonderful to work with in selling our parents home. His team did an excellent job marketing our home on the web and we got it under contract for asking price in about 10 days. Mike was very responsive when I contacted him for any questions. He knows the area and the process well. He helped keep everything moving and this was one of the smoothest closes I've ever been a part of. I would definitely recommend Mike.

              - He knows the area and process well
            • Mike was excellent from the beginning. My property was a tough sell, and Mike did a fantastic job pricing it right from the beginning. The most impressive part was the way Mike balanced my needs along with the needs of the agent to sell the house. He went out of his way to help and ensure that I had everything I needed in order to properly prepare and sell the house. I would absolutely recommend Mike to others that are selling their house.

              - Mike balanced my needs
            • Mike and his associate Sydnea are beyond excellent! I was a first time homebuyer so I was unfamiliar with the home purchasing steps. Both were extremely helpful in walking me through everything. Syndea would respond almost immediately to any message, email, or call I sent (and there were a lot of them). I was very clear on all the "must-haves" I was looking for and they made sure to find homes that matched my criteria. I looked at 25 houses over an eight week time span before I finally found one I was interested in putting an offer on. I just moved into my new home and couldn't be happier!I would recommend Mike and Sydnea to anyone looking to purchase a home!

              - Beyond excellent
            • Mike listed our house in St. Charles and had a signed contract on it literally one day later. He sold it on one day! Now, I am not saying that he is a magician and that he can sell any house in one day, but here is what I believe makes him so effective as a realtor. First, he is a numbers guy. Before we listed our home he came over and we sat at the kitchen table going over comps from the neighborhood and area. He had a complete history of the houses that had sold and gave sound advice about what we should list ours for. He said that if we priced it right, it would sell. And it did! The second thing that makes him so effective in my opinion is that he knows the area. Mike is a an expert in St. Charles County, and that helps so much. He has relationships with most of the other realtors, knows who to call to get what done, and made each step of the process much easier for us. Lastly, he is a wonderful guy to work with. He has the appearance of being very easy-going- and he is- but he is also firm when he needs to be, extremely prompt in returning calls and emails, and people just like him. I would highly recommend Mike Lamartina to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. I only had to show my home once! I don't think I can give higher praise than that! :)

              - He is a numbers guy!
            • Mike and His Team are very responsive and helpful. They made the process of finding a new home very enjoyable.I was in a relocation process and they were very flexible with showing me homes around my schedule.

              - Flexible
            • Mike and Sydnea were a fantastic team to work with and I was completely satisfied. They were well prepared for every meeting and showing we had. Professional quality photos that got our listing a high volume of showings and a very quick sale. Mike and Sydnea were also extremely knowledgeable about the area we were looking to buy our new home in and helped us find a house that was right for us. I'm extremely pleased with their help in making the home selling and buying process a smooth procedure

              - Professional Photos
            • Mike was extremely professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. We had to find a house in a few short days and Mike worked round the clock while we were in town to find us our dream house. He was very helpful and went above and beyond durning the entire process through closing and even after. I would recommend Mike to anyone looking for a home in the St. Louis area.

              - worked around the clock
            • Mike and Sydnea did a great job from the initial process of helping us find a home in the area we were looking all the way through closing. They had a lot of local knowledge about the neighborhoods and schools in the area and they did a good job of finding homes for us to look at that met our criteria. During the negotiation, offer and inspection process they were very responsive and did a good job of working with the seller's agent to get what we wanted as part of our purchase. I would definitely work with them again. Thanks for everything!

              - I would definitely work with them again
            • Mike is an excellent agent. He helped us for several months in our search to find our first home. Mike was extremely attentive and made us feel that we were his only client throughout the entire process from showing homes to closing on the perfect one.

              - Excellent agent
            • Mike was so easy to work with, always pleasant and happy. Throughout process he always explained each step thoroughly. He was timely in all calls, emails and texts. Excellent knowledge of area properties.

              - Pleasant and happy
            • We absolutely loved working with Mike and his assistant Sydnea. They helped us sell what was our very first home and helped us find our new home. It having been our first time selling a home and having been many years since buying our last, we were very nervous but upon meeting Mike the very first time we knew we were in good hands. Both Mike and Sydnea were knowledgable and personable. It felt like we were dealing with family friends instead of two people we had just met. They were always honest and we felt like they always had our best interests in mind so we felt like we could trust them which is huge in our opinion when dealing with a real estate agent. We would highly recommend them if you are selling and/or buying a home.

              - It felt like we were dealing with family friends
            • Mike Lamartina was absolutely fantastic, both in the purchase of our home and the sale of the same home. He was respectful, responsive, and ALWAYS went above and beyond the 'call-of-duty' from our eyes to be of better service to my wife and I. I cannot think of very many individuals who would leave the golf course to help out a client on a moment's notice, especially after the sale was completed! One can easily tell how much Mike truly loves his job and how much he cares about his clients which made the decision to again choose Mike as our selling agent was a no-brainer, we didn't even have to look elsewhere. Mike made it very easy for us, gave us very descriptive guidelines on how to prepare the house for showing, and was very helpful throughout the process. Our house was on the market for a very short time, 1 week, and was due to his preparation and knowledge of the market and how to get the word out on our listing. Thanks Mike for all you did to help us out, I will recommend your services to anyone!

              - No-Brainer
            • I'm so Thankful for The Lamartina Group! Mike and Sydnea are Wonderful to work with! We felt very comfortable in buying our first home. They made it so easy and were so knowledgeable in the market. Anytime I had a question or a house to look at, they were there! Anytime!.. They always put you first... No matter what! We have our perfect home now. We couldn't be happier!!....thanks for everything you two!.. :)

              - Very Knowledgeable.
            • Mike was an exceptional realtor. He was helpful, trustworthy, and always had our back. He was very re-assuring to us as first-time sellers, and went above and beyond to get the job done for us. On top of which, he communicated with me like a real person, and was always a joy to get a call from. I would recommend Mike to anyone looking for a Realtor to buy or sell.

              - Exceptional Realtor
            • Mike and his team made us feel as if we were their top priority. They were not only responsive, but available. We particularly appreciated the fact that Mike had our long-term best interest at heart by giving us sound advice about the properties in which we were interested. We had an outstanding experience and LOVE our new house. Would recommend the Lamartina Group to everyone considering a real eatate agent!

              - Top Priority
            • I first contacted Mike through Zillow after seeing a large number of positive reviews. I happened to send the inquiry at the end of the business day as Mike was leaving the office. However, he called me within a couple of minutes of my clicking submit and stayed on the phone with me for quite a while, asking questions about how far along I was in the process, what I wanted, and what steps we would need to take on the way from a loan preapproval to closing on the house. I a few buyer agents, but Mike was the most responsive and gave me the best info and advice. He continued to be top-notch all the way through the process and I was able to view a dozen or so promising homes and find the one I wanted in two weeks and then closed 30 days later. If you want a quick and painless process without all the confusion, Mike is your guy.

              - Always on the job

              - Always on the job
            • Mike was great in every step along the way in a very difficult process. The family really appreciated every time he went over and above what was expected. Thank You Mike

              - Thank you Mike
            • Mike was wonderful! He was transparent, provided great advise, and was able to find us a home that we where incredibly happy with. Mike and his team worked with us every step of the way. Mike was professional in his approach, and was incredibly accessible when it came to follow up and answering of our questions. I would highly recommend him to anyone in the area who is needing a realtor.

              - Wonderful / great advise
            • Mike made us feel like we could relax and let his group do the rest. It worked. House sold in three days. He was very professional and offered contact info and was available for all our questions.

              - relax and let his group do the rest
            • Very quick to reply to questions about listings. Was able to look at homes quickly and always made himself available on short notice. Willing to work around my schedule and free time. Lots of knowledge and help for a first time home buyer.

              - always there for me
            • Our experience with Mike was very favorable from the market analysis to the closing. We were very happy with Mike and would recommend him as a knowledgeable real estate agent.

              - Knowledgeable
            • The short version:Extremely knowledgeable, helped us get more money than we initially expected, got us a lot of showings and quick offer (which made all the difference in getting us more money). You need Mike or someone like him if you are buying or selling a house!

              - The short version
            • Mike and his team are a pleasure to work with. As a first time single mom buying a home I had a lot of anxiety about the process and they held my hand through the entire purchase and made it all so easy for me!

              - Makes it easy
            • Mike was extremely knowledgeable of the local area and helped me narrow down houses that fit my family's needs and our budget. He was very responsive and helped with any issue or concern that came up over the natural course of buying a house. I was moving across 6 states so my time was limited in the area and he really worked with my schedule.

              - Very responsive
            • We stumbled upon Mike in 2011 when we bought our first house. We were impressed by his knowledge of the homes themselves as well as his customer service. We decided to sell in 2016 and reached out to Mike again for his assistance. He truly puts service before self!

              - Service before self
            • Mike is very knowledgeable and always available. He helped us with both the sale of our condo and the purchase of our new home. He was a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend him for all of your real estate needs.

              - Highly recommend
            • Mike is awesome. He is very knowledgable and goes out of his way to assist in the process of buying or selling of your home. I ran into a couple snags when selling my home and Mike helped in resolving them expediently. He is very professional while remaining personable. I would recommend his services to anyone. Thank you Mike!

              - Awesome!
            • I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Our house had been on the market for months with very little activity and when Mike took on our listing we started getting showings and offers right away. We had done some improvements that could account for some of that but Mike deserves by far most of the credit for getting our house sold.Mike was great at listening and guiding us through the process. He knew how to give us answers even when I didn't quite ask the right question.Our past experiences with other agents weren't quite what we would've hoped for with Mike it was completely different. He picked up our slack, instead of the other way around.

              - Picked up the slack when others could not get it done
            • We worked with Mike and a member of his team, Sydnea, to purchase our first home and we couldn't have asked for a better experience! Sydnea was patient and helped us look for months in an extremely competitive market until we found the perfect house. She is thorough, extremely knowledgeable, and made sure we were informed and comfortable throughout throughout the entire process. We highly recommend working with the Lamartina Group!

              - What a team!
            • Mike knew what we were looking for and what our price range was. He only showed us places that met our criteria. He pointed out things that we wouldn't have noticed. He was never pushy.

              - On your side
            • Mike was a great realtor! He really knew the area, was available any time I had a question and knew the answers. He made my home buying process as easy and stress free as possible! I would highly recommend him!

              - Highly recommend
            • When Mike was introduced to us we had had a far less than pleasant experience with a previously assigned reactor. Mike stepped in and not only picked up the dropped ball but made sure that our first home (not house) was perfect and the process was singular versus plagued by repetitive paperwork. His attentiveness and outgoing personality have placed him on our long term Xmas list! As a company rep I see his expertise and community involvement as an invaluable asset that should be advanced and promoted within both the company and the community.

              - A man you can Trust
            • My husband and I were moving from Chattanooga, TN to St. Louis, MO for his job and all I can say is I really don't know if we could have done it without Mike and his team! We wanted to find the right house for us in a perfect location where we could easily get plugged into the St. Louis community, make new friends, and our work commute would be as painless as possible. At the time we were looking, the housing market in St. Louis was the hottest most realtors had ever seen in the area so it was almost impossible for us to scout out homes online too far in advance of our house hunting visits because they were gone by the time we got to town. Mike listened and understood everything we were looking for and did an amazing job of maximizing the time we had on our weekend visits by showing us as many homes as he could find within the realm of what we wanted. Over three weekend visits, he showed us 50 houses...50 HOUSES!! And never once did we feel like he was pressuring us to hurry up and make a decision! He and his team are extremely knowledgable when it comes to noticing red flags in a house...especially when eyeballing cracks in a foundation or basement...which you see lots of basements in St. Louis. No question we asked was ever brushed off, if he didn't know the answer he would have an answer back to us asap! He would even get back to us on questions we forgot we asked! We never once felt like we couldn't get in touch with him and we always understood where we were at in the process. We wholeheartedly trusted Mike with every step of the process because he gave us more than enough reasons to. I would honestly trust him and his team to go to another city and pick out a house for me and buy it with my money without me ever seeing it. They're that good. They understand the importance of finding a home with good bones in a great location. I could never say enough good things about our experience with the LaMartina Team.
