It is great hearing from you and I hope that you and your family are doing great.

Thanks, in large part to you, we are back in Florida enjoying being back “home”.

Your professionalism, integrity, and sound  business judgment helped us to navigate through a very difficult process.

Dora Huang; Seller in Brandywine River Estates, E Bradford Twp

Dear Mike,

You are so nice to work with. Did I tell you I was to interview 4 realtors and decide
on one to sell our house. You were the third one I talked to. I knew you were the one
and I never saw the 4th one. I told many friends who will be down sizing soon what
a easy job it was with you as my realtor. They have your name and phone number
when it is time they will contact you.

Dora

And from daughter Karen, after the closing:

Hi, Mike,
Thanks so much for helping my parents with their home sale!  It was great to know they had you to provide them with good advice and dependable technicians for the services needed to get the house sold.

Wish us luck!  And good luck to you too.  If we hear of anyone moving to Philly, we will be sure to recommend you.

Thanks, Karen





Oli and Linda, Riverside Sellers, and local buyers

Mike helped us sell our home (in Riverside, Pocopson Twp) and helped us find a new one, all within a very short tiime period.  Made the transition easy and helped at every step.  We would use Mike's services again!

Mike and Tess Scott, Riverside buyers

Last year Mike expertly guided my wife and I through the home buying process. Our process took about 4 months and through that time our criteria changed as we better understood the Unionville / Chadds Ford area.  As our search changed, Mike was patient, diligent, and thorough throughout it all in finding our family the perfect house. His energetic responses to the varying demands that arose constantly exceeded our expectations. In the end, he helped find us the perfect house before it was even listed, and we had an accepted offer the first day it went on the market.  I have nothing but praise for his professionalism and ability to understand and predict the pulse on different neighborhoods within this award winning school district.  I have recommended him to friends and would not hesitate to use him in the future should we need to move.

Josh and Karen, Delaware County buyers and sellers

We have nothing but thanks and praise for Mike's assistance with the selling of our home, and the search and purchase of our new one.  Mike's honesty, professionalism, knowledge of the market and the industry in general, and his personable nature make him easy to work with.  He doesn't add stress to the buying and selling process, he diminishes it.  Mike kept us on task, clarified many situations and issues, guided us with our options, and provided us insights that we would never had thought of ourselves- even if we did the research alone!  We knew Mike was covering all of the bases, and we successfully sold our old home and purchased a new home under his direction and care.  Because of working with Mike and the entire Spillane crew, we'll have fond memories of what could have been a very stressful time in our lives!

M Zhang, Chester and Bucks Counties

In 2010 we found Mike on internet and asked him to serve as our real estate agent. We were relocating from McLean Virginia to West Chester/Chadds Ford area, and Mike spent a few weekends driving us around looking at a pretty extensive list of houses that we are interested in. His knowledge of the local housing market is very helpful. Given his previous experience as a builder, he also had a lot of unique inputs of various houses, including the built, different systems and various things that you need to pay attention to. He was also very patient and courteous, yet never dull. He was the perfect find: like an old friend who would provide all the useful information and guide you through the confusing process of buying the houses without pushing you into a direction that might not be in your best interest. We were able to find a property that fit our needs pretty soon, from one of the properties that Mike showed us.

In 2012 given our job situation changes, we were once again looking for a house to buy and this time in Northeast Philly area. Without second thought we contacted Mike and told him what we were looking for and once again he spent several weekends showing us properties. He had always been prompt, resourceful (in solving all kinds of problems) and insightful. Once we found the house we wanted, we were able to work together and strategize the bidding process. Eventually our offer was accepted with several back and forth and we were able to buy the house we wanted at a pretty fair level. Mike's representation, professional, firm and fair, was very well respected by all the parties throughout the negotiation process.

Mike has a pretty extensive network which could offer a lot of help. For example, in the last minute my wife had to go to oversea for an extended period, and the closing would have to be done by myself. On a Sunday, Mike was able to find a public notary to process the power of attorney's documents right before my wife boarded the plane.

Mike has been a friend of family for several years now. His knowledge and advice is always appreciated and friendship enjoyed. When we closed the 2012 purchase, we had an escrow set up for a pretty major renovation on the house. Yet because of the schedule conflicts the project was not done even a year later. One day i suddenly realize that the escrow could potentially be released without the project getting finished and i called Mike 11PM to discuss this. Mind you the house was purchased in early 2012, and this was more than a year since then, and Mike had no obligation to do anything at all on this. However in the middle of the night we went through the documents, and put together a plan to push the projects to be done as soon as possible, and Mike got out of his way to coordinate things to make sure they were done correctly and smoothly.

It is very hard to find someone that you could trust and rely upon in real estate business. I think Mike is someone that you actually can, with his integrity, resource, and knowledge of all his stuff.



Gary and Linda, Chester County Farm sellers


Mike,
Thank you my good and faithful Christian friend for your perseverance and belief that between you and God, this potential sale could/would become a reality. Your patience, experience and character traits served all of us well and we were blessed that you handled it to completion with all the obstacles being removed over time. You kept me calmed down and I am grateful for this attribute you possess. You are indeed a Godly man and Linda and I are privileged to have you and Jeannie as friends.

Love in HIM,

Gary and Linda



Ryan and Jody Peterson, Chester County Buyers and Sellers

Jody and I want to thank you for the huge role you played in our lives this year... You expertly guided us through the process of purchasing this house and navigating the whole process, and we couldn't be happier! At the same time you expertly listed our previous home...and did ALL the work for us. I can't tell you how nice it was to leave town all those summer weekends knowing that the house and all the showings and details were in your good hands...I am really glad we had you by our sides during that process.

Ashley Brown, Riverside at Chadds Ford Seller

Hi everyone... I wanted to just write our former neighbors and give a shout out to Mike Spillane for helping us to sell our home at 421 Trolley Way. 

I can't tell you how stressful the home sale process has been for us. For those of you who own stucco homes, you may run into the same issues that we ran into when selling our home... 

Anyway, throughout this process, Mike patiently worked with us, and the buyers' real estate agents. We're now living in Houston. He coordinated all contractors and anything else that we needed for the house. Buyers also loved him because he lives in the neighborhood and can answer all questions on schools, activities, etc. He went 1000% above and beyond for us... In a time that we really felt helpless and so far away from the house, he was our lifeline. I wanted to share this experience with you in case anyone ever needs to sell a home. We HIGHLY recommend Mike, and appreciated all that he did for us.


Mike and Lindsay McCarthy, Chester County Buyers and Sellers

Mike, thank you so much for all of your hard work on the sale and purchase of our new home. I was totally impressed with your level of professionalism and your knowledge. I felt totally comfortable through the entire process. If there is anything I can ever do for you, please let me know. Again, thanks a million, - you are an exceptional agent and an even better person! With great respect, the McCarthys

Doug Levine, Chester County Seller

Nothing tops both kind, professional, courteous service and RESULTS. We believe we were positioned for a successful sale of our home because of excellent recommendations, and attention to details throughout the offer-to-closing process. We are so appreciative of the fact that a major life transition was not disrupted by the sale of our home as we relocated geographically. We could not have asked for anything better... Thanks, Mike and Zeke!!!

Debra Pook, Downingtown Seller

Professional, courteous, timely, accurate... We received excellent, professional service from Team Spillane. Would we use Mike and his staff again? Of course!

Marlon and Holly Paz, Chester County Buyer and Seller

Mike Spillane was the best real estate agent we encountered in our search for a home, hands down. He really listened to what it was we wanted and never tried to push us into considering homes that did not meet our criteria. We found his knowledge of the area and of home construction invaluable. He was very receptive to our questions and always answered them frankly. Not only was Mike with us every step of the way up to purchase, he continued to follow up with us after we had bought our house. We would recommend Mike to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Brian and Vivian Wolfson, Delaware County Seller

We found the Mike Spillane Team completely professional. We were able to have our questions and concerns answered immediately and completely. We were thrilled with the short amount of time it took to sell our house and the ease from beginning to end. The process was painless. In the economic climate of today we are fortunate to have had the experience we did and we owe it to the partnership we had with the Mike Spillane Team.

Jeff Avery, Pocopson Twp Buyer

Mike and Jeannie did a wonderful job in finding a new home for our family. Mike's past knowledge as a homebuilder was an invaluable asset during the whole process. He consistently evaluated each property we were interested in and was very straight-forward in determining each prospective home's pros and cons from location, market value, retention value, quality of construction, etc.. Jeannie was a great asset as well as she was always willing to listen to my concerns and always made time to show me properties in a timely fashion. Mike and Jeannie make a wonderful team of real estate professionals and I would recommend them highly. Sincerely, Jeff Avery

Barb and Dick Fairfield, Chester County Seller

Dear Mike and Jeannie, This is just a note of thanks to let you know how much we appreciated your professionalism, expertise and intuition on the sale of our home. We were becoming very discouraged with the realtors the relocation company was sending us when my husband found you on the internet. You were definitely like a godsend when we contacted and met you both. Your efficient response and understanding of our situation was superb. And when we sold the house in just six days to a client who contacted you we definitely knew we had made the right choice in listing out house with you! You really seemed to have a feel for our house, the market, and the type of buyer who would want to buy our house. Thank you so much. We truly are indebted to you for your guidance and wisdom throughout the process of selling our home and would highly recommend you to anyone looking for a first-class, knowledgeable, and superior realtor. Thanks again for everything, Barbara and Dick Fairfield

John and Betty Maher, Thornbury Seller

Dear Mike: John and I wanted to thank you for the great job you did in selling our house. You stuck to the price you quoted and stayed relaxed and calm through the many obstacles we went through in the selling process. Selling a house these days is not as simple as it was when we brought and sold our first house. We think you handled yourself in a very professional manner in dealing with home inspectors and their unrealistic demands. You also provided emotional support that was much appreciated as we went through the negotiation process. We very much appreciated your ability to bring the sale of our house to a fruitful conclusion. After having tried to sell our house on are own, we realize the full value of your services and professionalism, but more importantly your personal supportive nature. Thanks again for getting us through the sale of our house. Please feel free to use us as a reference anytime. The very best to you and Jeannie: Betty & John Maher

Dean Marino and Jamie Edmunson, Thornbury Buyer

We depended on Mike Spillane to help with more than a local home purchase -- he was our only East Coast contact in assisting us with our relocation from California. Mike helped us determine the right location, managed the pre-closing activities, was present for our pre-closing inspections, and he did it all within a very short time frame. Mike delivered on all our expectations and greatly reduced the stress of our cross-country relocation. Among the areas that we most appreciated Mike were his knowledge of new construction. He was able to quickly evaluate construction issues and guide us in the right direction. Mike was an excellent liaison in pulling together various parties that were not always quick to respond to our needs. But, it all came together thanks to Mike's diligence and skill at handling all phases of the purchase.

Bill and Ann McCauley, Chester Cnty Buyer and Seller

To Whom It May Concern: The purchase of a home is usually the largest single expense one makes in a lifetime. If you buy a $175,000 house it may cost you $400,000 over the course of a thirty-year mortgage, to me that is a scary proposition. Another scary proposition is trying to sell a home in a flat real estate market. Seven years ago that┐s where my wife and I found ourselves. We asked friends and associates for recommendations. Two people independently told us of the great experience they had working with Mike Spillane. We met with Mike and were immediately impressed by his warm, friendly, personal manner. We gave Mike the daunting job of selling our condo in a very flat market. He did a superb job of marketing the property. When the time arose to close the deal there appeared to be an impasse that was certain to destroy the deal between the buyer and ourselves. Mike was able to negotiate a settlement in ┐Solomon like style┐ that was truly fair to all parties. He is a man of great experience but more importantly he is a man of great integrity! It was just one year latter my wife and I decided to purchase a new home. We wanted new construction and we wanted to return to Chester County. Needless to say Mike was the first person we called. Mike is a former builder. His advice on developers, construction techniques, materials, as well as location was invaluable. His knowledge saved us tens of thousands of dollars. We got the house we wanted at the price we wanted in the location we wanted. I would like to close this note by making two points. My wife and I would be considered low to middle end customers. Our condo sold for $92,500 and our new home was purchased for $167,000 four years ago (now appraised at $220,000, THANKS MIKE!!!). Mike treated us as if we were selling a five million-dollar home! Secondly, Mike┐s vocation is the real estate business. He is not simply a salesman. He is a very moral person. Sadly this can not be stated about everyone in the real estate industry. Mike understands that he is not selling you a house. Mike assists clients in attaining the home that meets their needs. It is without reservation that I would recommend Mike Spillane to anyone seeking a first rate real estate agent. Sincerely, Bill McCauley Downingtown, PA

Tom and Ruth Groves, Chester County Buyers

We highly recommend Mike and Jeannie Spillane to anyone buying a home. As first time homebuyers we found the whole process to be very confusing and very intimidating. None of our phone calls to other realtors were being returned, not to mention the fact that we knew nothing about how to obtain a mortgage. When we found Mike and Jeannie everything became less overwhelming. They returned all of our phone calls and emails immediately. They gave us honest and easy to understand information and in about a month we owned our new home. We can definitely say that the next time we need a real estate agent we will call Mike and Jeannie first. Thomas and Ruth Groves

Sanjay Patel, Wilmington Buyer

It was a joy working with Mike. His background in construction was a great asset and leveraged my decision making when looking at houses. One aspect of Mike that stood out from other realtors that I worked with was his professional attitude in that he did not pressure us to buy the first one that we looked at. His turn around time to looking at houses was quick. I would not hesitate for a second to use and recommend his services in the future. Sanjay

Warren and Merry Perry, Pocopson Twp Buyers

Dear Mike and Jeannie, We want to express our most sincere thanks for the assistance you provided in finding a home in the West Chester area. From our first communication via email, to the many hours you spent understanding our needs and exploring matches, to the final details of the closing, we found you to be incredibly professional, proficient, and extremely pleasant to work with. Your knowledge of the local market and real estate law proved to be invaluable in our search. Searching for a home from one thousand miles away is a challenging task. You helped us find the perfect home that meets our needs and desires while making the entire process quite enjoyable. We couldn┐t be happier. If you ever require a reference for potential clients in the future, please do not hesitate to have them contact us. I feel certain that your professionalism, experience and attitude will serve them well. Sincerely, Warren & Merry Perry
