Mike’s professional approach and understanding of the North Beach/Telegraph Hill neighborhood was impressive from the outset. He helped manage the process of preparing our property for listing by helping source, schedule and meet several vendors at the property making the sales process much easier for us. We definitely recommend Mike to anyone thinking of listing their property in San Francisco.
Mike absolutely knows his job and the market. In the uncertain market of Fall 2009, he boldly named a selling price, prepared my condo for listing, worked hard, and got exactly what he said – a sale price that was 5% higher than estimates from 2 other brokers. Plus, he did almost all of this, including the coordination of minor repairs and renovations, while I was thousands of miles away.
The best part was your ability to guide us through the process in an organized way and that your naturally calm personality made the closing period seamless as well as kept our stress level down.
You did an amazing job for us, especially since we were out of town and you handled everything.
Mike Hood did a great job for us in our recent purchase of a house in San Francisco. We were initially interested in a duplex but opted for a Single Family Home and he spent a good deal of time showing us both kinds of properties. Mike is very knowledgeable of the market and an excellent negotiator. He got us a very good deal. My wife and I have worked with several agents in the past and Mike Hood was by far the best. Highly recommended.
Mike Hood helped us find a wonderful house. He was patient and listened carefully to our needs. He understands how Real Estate transactions work and gets things done in a timely basis. I strongly recommend using Mike, as he has the experience and knowledge to guide someone through the home buying process.
Purchasing my first home was a daunting task and a significant investment. However, Mike’s guidence, knowledge, and patience helped me navigate the process successfully and with little stress. From start to finish, I knew that he always had my best interest in mind. I plan to use him again and I would highly recommend him, especially to first time buyers.
We had the pleasure of working with Mike recently while selling our house in Mission, San Francisco. We were amazed at how smoothly and accurately the entire process was managed by Mike. He helped advise us where and what to invest in in order to maximize selling price, he oversaw the process of painting, fixing and staging the house. He gave us a timeline and kept to it all along and in addition to being incredibly professional, he was a pleasure to work with, always relaxed, available and to the point. Deciding who to go with when selling your house isn’t an easy decision, there are many unknowns and choosing the right person can transalte to a lot of money, we feel like we made the best decision going with Mike and Compass.
