About Michael

About
EXPERIENCE. 33 years selling homes in your area. When entrusting a real estate agent with one of your largest assets nothing is more important than experience when handling all the details of a complex real estate transaction. MONEY specifically more money. My list-to-sell ratio is 98.5%. Our industry average is 91.5%. What this means is I have a history of selling my clients homes for 7% more than the average agent. Simply put I put more dollars in your pocket. FASTER SALE. Question should your home take 6 months or a year to sell? No. My average days on market is 24. Our industry average is 104. NO RISK. You dont pay me a dime unless your home sells. I pay for all marketing costs up front. THE HONEST TRUTH. Your time is valuable and choosing the wrong agent can cost you thousands of dollars on your sales price not to mention the additional monthly payments youll make with a delayed sale. I encourage you to hire a professional real estate agent with a proven track record.

Fran B. sold a home in Akron

Michael was wonderful to work with. He sold our house in Strongsville, OH 8 years ago. We bought our house in Brunswick thru him at the same time. We came back to him this past October to sell our son's home in Akron. He was extremely helpful and professional. He kept in contact with us continuously throughout the whole process. We HIGHLY recommend him!

Michael A. bought a home in Avon

I wholeheartedly recommend Michael if you're looking for a realtor. I can't say enough nice things about working with Michael. We were able to find a home that was in our price range and perfect for us. Mr. Atkinson made himself available when it was convenient for my wife and I - and he learned our preferences/what we were looking for immediately (The man has a sixth sense about these things)! About a month after moving into our home Michael came through for us in a big way in helping with an escrow issue. He really went above and beyond in this instance and resolved the issue quickly - something that I'm not convinced a different realtor would have done. With the personal attention, availability, and work ethic that Michael beings to the table, I feel very strongly about recommending him to anyone looking for a home!

Tad F. sold a home in Bay Village

We highly recommend working with Michael when buying or selling your home. He was our listing agent when selling our home, and represented us when buying our next one! His communication and responsiveness went beyond our expectations; he replies quickly! He truly is an advocate for your family through the entire process. Furthermore, we very much appreciated having a group text to discuss properties and strategies... it was the most efficient tool for us for quick feedback to determine which houses we wanted to look at and make offers. It was also fun working with him! It can certainly feel stressful selling/buying a home, but Michael counters this stress with a lot of knowledge, and it felt like he had our best interests at all times! Thanks again Michael!!!!

Caleb B. sold a home in Parma

My wife and I worked with Michael to buy a home and sell our home. When we were nervous, Michael was confident. When we had questions, Michael had answers. If we needed advice, Michael had recommendations. Our communication with him was fantastic; we always felt like we knew what was happening. We're so glad a friend recommended Michael to us, and we'll be recommending him to our friends!

Guy And Doretta D. sold a home in Cleveland Heights

If you are like me, you are skeptical of all the five star ratings for Michael Atkinson. I will tell you the only reason I am giving Michael a five star rating is because 10 stars is not an option! Michael was one of 4 agents we interviewed when we were considering selling our home. He supported our thoughts and we decided to go ahead. We did a few days of prep and were on the market. In short, multiple offers, all over asking and sold in 36 hours from first showing. But now we had to BUY a house and those prospects looked dim. We had resigned ourselves to a rent-and-wait strategy and we were days away from signing a lease, when Michael found us the perfect house! It had gone on the market that morning. Exactly the house we would have built, in a neighborhood we had seen and liked. With Michael's advice we went in with a strong offer and 8 hours later we got the house! Michael was very pleasant, responsive and patient. A true professional. Believe the five star ratings. He is for real.

Bo S. bought a home in Bay Village, OH

Michael is the total package professional. You will not be disappointed. He arranged to have my house cleared and cleaned and readied for sale in mere days - even with 45 years of stuff in it. He then went on to get multiple bids and an above asking price sale. The best!

Elizabeth G. sold a home in North Olmsted, Ohio 44070

My mother passed away in the spring of 2019. We had her condo to sell along with all of the other responsibilities of closing her estate. Michael completely eased our burden with the sale of the condo. On the day it was listed, we had 6-7 showings. The following day we had 3 offers and it sold for above our asking price. All of the paperwork and closing procedures were handled quickly and professionally. What a relief it was in our time of sorrow to have Michael handle everything so completely and worry-free for our family.

Tina D. sold a home in Hudson, OH 44236

I highly recommend Michael Atkinson at RE/MAX to anyone seeking top dollar for their property. Michael is a dynamic, highly talented agent with a keen sense of the local market. Last fall, he rolled out a fantastic marketing campaign on my property that resulted in multiple offers within 5 days. Michael applied his considerable negotiating skills during the process and delivered a solid final offer several thousand dollars over asking price. Michael knows how to handle it all, from start to finish, and instills his caring and confidence throughout the process.
