  • Mike helped me buy a home

      You’ll be hard pressed to find a more honest, ethical, and dedicated realtor. From day one, he sat me down and got straight to business, teaching me, a first time homebuyer, about what to expect. He made it easy and fun! He radiates a passion for houses and is willing to take the extra time to help people. Mike was always a step ahead! He will make every other person you work with (insurance brokers, lenders, etc) seem slow as molasses and unresponsive. Mike is a HUGE value asset. He has not only helped me find a house but has taught me so much that I will take with me down the road. I cannot express in enough detail my gratitude for him!

    • Mike listed and sold my home

        Mike was an honest, caring, and very knowledgeable about the sale of my home. I would definitely recommend him! Thanks again for everything!

      • Mike helped me buy a home

          Mike was an incredible realtor! He helped us find a wonderful.home that we LOVE!! We have been here for three years already. He still sends us Holiday cards every year! He really understood what we were looking for and was diligent, and patient with us. Such an easy going, clear, knowledgeable, fun guy to house hunt with. We Love Mike, and You will too! <3

        • Mike listed and sold my home

            Hard-working, kind, smart, professional, experienced, honest, dedicated... we couldn't have asked for more in a realtor. We were very blessed and thankful to have Mike in our corner through our entire buying and selling process. The purchasing end of our deal was pretty difficult and he went to bat for us in a big way. I would run out of characters to describe our great experience so all I can say is you will not be disappointed in choosing him as your realtor. Thanks again Mike!

            • Mike listed and sold my home

                Mike is incredible! He is thoughtful and caring while being very driven. He gave us great attention and effort- it resulted in more money in pocket than we expected. Very professional; we would recommend him to anyone. We would never think of using another realtor. His knowledge and experience were very helpful, and calming, when working with offers and the closing process.

              • Mike helped me buy a home

                  On a scale of 1-10 I would rate Mike a 20. He went above and beyond what any other realtor would or had done before. I would highly recommend him. He checked out things I never would have thought of. He was highly professional and extremely informative while blending in a personal touch. My son and I would use him again in a heartbeat. Thankfully he helped us find our forever home.

                • Mike listed and sold my home

                    Mike helped us both buy and sell a home. He went the extra mile to help. I recamend him to everyone who is wanting to buy or sell a home.

                  • Mike helped me buy a home

                      We're extremely pleased with the support and attention Mike provided. His experience with the local market was instrumental in helping us find and favorably negotiate closing on the home we were looking for in a beautiful neighborhood. We'd definitely work with him again!

                    • Mike listed and sold my home

                        Mike is very helpful the full time. Always there.

                      • Being out out-of-state buyers we wanted a realtor we could trust to support our requirements, who could interpret and represent our needs in the search process and who could also connect us into the local support network; Mike fulfilled our expectations! He was always extremely responsive and very action oriented --- quickly returning answers to our questions, following up on our interested listings, getting answers from the selling agents, sharing his local experience and ensuring we had the information we needed to support our review and filtering process. When we found the on-line listing that ended up being the home we purchased, Mike personally visited the property for us sending additional photos, information and providing the insight & observations that helped us decide to make the trip to Michigan. Considering our limited availability and time to travel, Mike graciously arranged & organized a full weekend house hunting trip for us and which helped my wife and I reach a very comfortable and confident decision to buy. We are very pleased with the high level of support, personal interest and attention we received from Mike throughout.

                      • Working with Mike Kuzawa, was so amazing. He kept me in the loop of what was happening and helped me get things done that needed to be done for closing. Mike goes over and behind his title. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Mike to help you sale or buy your home.

                      • My mother passed away just before Christmas this past year. I am the trustee of her estate. I needed to find an agent that I could trust to help sell the home that my parents bought in the early years of their marriage, and where they raised me and my six siblings. I have known Mike Kuzawa from childhood, he grew up just up the street from us. He went to our same school and his family attended the same church as we did. I remember seeing him as we walked to school and weekly at mass. I have always had very pleasant interactions with Mike. I remembered what a kind and respectful person he has always been. Through the years, I have seen Mike working at The Onion Crock, and Cheshire Village. I knew Mike also had become involved in Real Estate several years ago. So when it came time for our family home to be sold, my first thought was, "who better than Mike Kuzawa". So, I looked him up online and had him come and give me his overview of what we needed to do in order to prepare my mother's home for sale and his estimate of what the value is of the house. Mike gave me a plan of attack to clear the house and we discussed a timeline that I wanted to get things prepared. Then, I was exceptionally surprised that he would assist in prepping our home. He was involved in every aspect of readying the house. He helped remove some cupboards from the bathroom, and painting that room. He helped pack boxes and move them and then get the house staged to make the house look it's best. Mike got the house listed on a Wednesday and by that Friday, (two days later) we were presented with not one, but 16 offers for our mother's home. We accepted a cash offer of nearly $12,000.00 more than the asking price. After the sale, we prepared for the estate sale of our mother's belongings. Mike came and gave us some much needed help during the sale. Mike offers a full service Real Estate experience. He is the most decent, helpful, reliable man. He helped us so much through the whole process. I would most definitely recommend Mike Kuzawa to any family needing a dependable, trustworthy, and considerate Real Estate Agent to help them. He is the person I would choose all over again. Thank you Mike.

                      • I can't say enough about how Mike helped me through the process of selling a house I've called home for 35 years. I chose him out of all realtors because of his willingness to walk that extra mile to meet our needs. I'm here to say, you don't meet a man like Mike on just any street corner. Mike has a talent for understanding and meeting needs of the people he is working with. His christian value goes a very long way in making him the best in his line of work. With Mike's help and taking his suggestions on how to prepare the house for viewing, the house was only listed one day before we got our first offer. He was able to get me the sale price I was asking for. Every challenge that came along during the process of the sale, he handled with a great deal of knowledge, calm and showed his ability to address whatever issue came up. I appreciated how he thought everything out carefully before proceeding. Thanks to Mike it was a very positive experience and one I'll always treasure.

                      • Mike is the "ultimate realtor". From the beginning, we were highly impressed with his attention to detail. Mike came to our home when we were ready to discuss listing it, and went through each room giving us advice and recommendations on what to fix, paint or change in order to get top dollar for our home. He took the time to fully understand what our ultimate goals were - which, for us, were selling fast and receiving top dollar. The advice he gave prior to listing helped to ensure that our home would stand out to potential buyers in this market. Not only did Mike go through our home prior to listing, but he also helped us with some of the work to prepare to go live. We wouldn't have been able to list at the perfect moment without his help. This is above and beyond the normal "call of duty" for a realtor, but I have heard similar stories of Mike from other clients. We were thoroughly impressed with this, but Mike didn't stop impressing us there. When all the work was complete and we were ready to list, Mike helped us stage our home as well. This was a crucial step in the sale of our home, and Mike's knowledge and expertise once again impressed us. Our home sold in just three days with multiple offers received. The offer we accepted was OVER asking price, and we couldn't be more thrilled! Mike also assisted us in purchasing a new home. While this could have been an extremely stressful process, Mike made it easy by sending homes that matched our criteria as soon as they were up, and being ready at the drop of a hat to show them to us. He was patient as we saw many homes, and understood the importance of finding the right home for our needs. In the end, our offer was accepted on the perfect home for us with Mike's help. We were shocked to have even won against a cash offer! In this market, Mike understood that submitting the right offer for the house you cannot stand to lose is key. Without his experience in a market such as this, we could not have gone through this process so smoothly, stress-free, and with the results that we have experienced. Thank you, Mike, for being the best realtor in West Michigan! We would (and do!) recommend Mike to everyone looking to buy and/or sell.

                      • Mike is an awesome realtor to work with! His service attitude, helpfulness and expertise are exceptional. I really knew he was wirking hard and doing his personal best for me. While trying to find a house to buy in a market area where houses were selling extremely fast, Mike texted me immediately when the house I ended up buying came on the market. He arranged everything and offered excellent advice and recommendations. If you are looking for a realtor to buy &/or sell a home, I highly recommend Mike to you.

                      • Best possible service. Knowledgeable, quick to respond, and honest at all times. Mike worked very hard to get us market ready and it, literally, paid off. We received our best offer the first day on the market. Mike was quick and helpful with all paperwork. So glad to have worked with him. We will use Mike to buy our next home.

                      • Mike was a godsend to me. He was there for me every step of the way. From getting my home ready to sell, being there for me for the ups and downs of listing my home. Mike is now a very good friend of mine. I would highly recommend Mike to anyone!

                      • Mike was awesome to work with. Very knowledgeable and quick to respond with my many questions. He kept me informed every step of the way. He worked hard getting my house prepared and staged for sale. Once listed, I had my first offer that same day and excepted it the very next day. The buyers were quite excited with their purchase and I was very excited with the smooth transition Mike made through selling my house. I would definitely recommend Mike to everyone. Very honest and dependable. Thank you Mike!

                      • We couldn't have asked for a better realtor! Mike did an incredible job with both selling our house and helping us find our dream home. We had a loan issue arrise very close to closing, that was of no fault of Mike whatsoever, and he worked tirelessly to pull off a miracle to resolve the issue. He is a man of his word, and a man of character. It was nice to have a knowledgeable person to fight and work for us but more than that, to be by our side through the process as well. We would highly recommend Mike's services.

                      • Working with Mike was a dream! He worked with my schedule and was great at staying in contact. As a first time home buyer I had no idea what what going to happen but after our first meeting I felt prepared for the whole process. You can trust him to find your next home.

                      • Professional and knowledgeable definitely a people person. He is very experienced in the field and has a sense of duty that goes above and beyond. He was always available to us and always ready to show us the properties that we requested. Always listen to us and answer all of our questions without hesitation. His advise and expertise helped us maneuver through the maze that is buying a house for the first time. I'm extremely happy with his performance as our realtor and would not think twice to have him help us again when we are ready to go into the market again.

                      • What a great experience we had with Mike, he is an awesome realtor! He knew exactly what I was looking for in a house and would look out for my requests as well as scope neighborhoods that I was interested in for signs of owners preparing to put their house on the market. He always made time to look at a new house that came on the market that appealed to me and called me immediately if I needed to look at it. He had great advice and looked at how well the house was built and best of all was honest. Even though it took months to find the right house, he wouldn't push a house just to make a sale. He helped with the inspections and also the follow up electrical estimate & repairs - he went beyond the call of duty as far as I'm concerned. I would definitely recommend Mike to anyone looking to buy a house, he is a very sincere guy and with Christian ethics too!

                      • Having been burnt my a realtor in the past I would say I was a damaged buyer who was high maintenance. Mike went above and beyond what I had expected. I lost my husband two years ago and Mike's expertise and willingness to be truthful and tell it straight was a huge benefit. He had no problem getting down and checking things out. He knew what to look for and warning signs of potential problems. Mike was an encouragement and such support even when we hit little snags I never felt like I was doing this alone. I feel God brought Mike into my life to give me my new home and place to live out my remaining years. I would highly recommend Mike to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Thanks Mike

                      • Mike guided us through the process of buying our first home. We had just moved to the US and Mike's knowledge and expertise was invaluable. We trusted Mike from the first time we met him, he was always very balanced in his opinions and really wanted us to make the right decision. Thanks again Mike!

We are thankful every day he was put in our path and was the one to walk this road with us. You will NOT be disappointed in having him in your corner for your buying and/or selling journey.
