After getting off to a rough start with another selling agent I was referred to Michael Hitz. The same day that I had inquired about selling my home, he had contacted me. There are no words to describe how hard this agent worked for my husband and I. From the very beginning we clicked and he was able to handle my sarcastic personality. That alone is huge!! Not only was he available day and night but he strived to no end to make our dreams come true. He represented us as both our selling and buying agent. Within weeks we were under contract! Throughout the buying and selling process Michael was our go to. He always had an answer and a direction to point us in. He never misguided us and was always looking out for our best interest. He became the best therapist a buyer and seller could ask for, cause let’s be honest, buying and selling a house is no walk in the park! Most importantly he was “in it to win it” for us! Anyone who’s lucky enough to have Michael represent them as their agent will never be disappointed. Not only was he a fantastic agent but he became a really great friend!
I moved from New Jersey to Maine for Love :). Wanted to find a place and came across Michael’s number on one of the “for Sale” signs in Westbrook. I am so thankful I reached out to Michael that day! I was new to Portland Area and had no clue where the best places were for me and my family. Michael went above and beyond to assist us. Spent numerous hours searching the right house for us that would reflect our personalities and needs. After few weeks of searching - he did not find us a house - he found us a home. Home that was built with Love - moved for Love and now having home made with Love :) I wish many people came across such an amazing person like Michael, who truly loves what he does and is so passionate about it. I wish other realtors would learn from him. Not only he was able to find us home, he guided us towards perfect for us lending, insurance, inspection services. Like someone earlier mentioned in the reviews - we did not gained a realtor - we gained a friend.
Michael did an outstanding job for us. We first began working with Michael before relocating from Indianapolis and looking for land to build in Maine. Michael was with us through the journey of determining building was not the best option and began looking for a home to purchase. He was patient and took the time to educate us as the Maine market was very different than our experience in Indianapolis. Michael provided excellent communication, always available for every detail and last question. Ultimately he found us the perfect house and was a top notch negotiator, truly an advocate on our behalf. He coordinated all of the details i.e. inspections, appraisals, closing and kept us informed every step of the way!We have a direct comparison having just sold a house in Indianapolis and while that realtor was effective he was not an advocate working on our behalf. Michael worked with the same high level of service whether it was to be a $40,000 land purchase or a $250K+ house. We have not only gained an excellent realtor but a new friend.We have already recommended Michael to friends preparing to sell their home knowing he will not only sell their home but will advocate for them as he did for us. Very grateful for Michael.
Buying a home is a stressful experience. Having Michael Hitz as our buyer’s agent made the process so much easier. He was, and continues to be after the purchase, both responsive and helpful as we settle into our new home in Maine. Thanks Michael!
