"He sold my home in this tough market, and managed to get pretty close to asking price"

Excellent industry knowledge and great to work with, I can't imagine working with any other realtor than Michael Peron! He sold my home in this tough market, and managed to get pretty close to asking price. He assisted us with our home new purchase, and not only did he handle the transaction, but he also helped coordinate the move, and some cosmetic renovations post-close, which was seriously a huge help!! Michael is an amazing man, and he gives a refreshing take on realtors!!

"Michael Peron has been absolutely wonderful... Always very responsive and helpful"

Michael Peron has been absolutely wonderful. We are an overseas buyer and our main contact with Michael has been email. Always very responsive and helpful. When we did come to the USA to look at some properties, he was ready with all the information and a good number of places to look at. He listened well and understood what we want. In 3 days we had found a place that suited us, and negotiated a price. We will be doing a lot more business with Michael Peron and I can not recommend him highly enough.
