Customer Testimonials

Dear Michael,

Maureen and I want to thank you for the outstanding service you’ve provided. Your firm logo says “Home Town Feel…World Class Service”…and this is clearly more than just a motto at Sterling Properties. It is truly how you run your business in serving clients!

You were extremely helpful in narrowing options to find the property that best met our vacation home needs. You listened carefully to our goals, preferences, and likes/dislikes – showing us homes that were good choices. We were able to find just the right home in a very short time based on your thoughtful approach and solid research. You helped us negotiate wisely and close the deal quickly. And you represented our best interests as a fiduciary – the same high standard of care we follow in serving our clients. In a world too often filled with conflicts of interest, it was refreshing to know that you put our needs first.

But what truly amazed us is the incredible service after the sale – going the extra mile on so many occasions well after the deal had closed and commissions were paid. You have treated us as friends – not just customers – and we cannot thank you enough. From re-keying the property, arranging for a handyman to complete a few items on our wish list, meeting the alarm installer, coordinating furniture deliveries, and even keeping an eye on the home, you have been there for us. We call this “Wow Service” at our firm – and you have delivered it with flying colors.

You truly have made us feel at home and provided world class service, exceeding our every expectation. You are like a great next door neighbor – something that is hard to find these days. You can count us among your biggest fans – and should feel free to share our comments with new potential clients. We thank you again – and are sure others will be happy they decided to work with you too.
