TESTIMONIALS

I would very highly recommend Michael & Ivan!  Not only are they extremely knowledgeable but they are very honest and this a quality that I very much appreciated throughout the buying process.  They were always available for me and even after the deal was done, they remained close in case I needed anything  else.  I felt supported the entire process and hope to have Michael & Ivan as my agents for the next purchase in Miami.

Having worked with numerous brokers in New York City and now Miami, I can honestly say that Michael & Ivan are among the most thorough, thoughtful and classy real estate professionals I’ve ever come across. Their work ethic is unparalleled and their drive to meet the needs of their clients is remarkable. In an  industry oftentimes filled with low-quality professionals and unethical tactics, Michael & Ivan are a breath of fresh air who make the daunting nature of finding a home an enjoyable experience. I would highly recommend Michael & Ivan to others seeking a home and I will be working with them again and again.

The best way to sum up my experience with Michael & Ivan is to say that we closed on our home half way around the world .Michael & Ivan instilled such trust in us that I was comfortable that they knew what we wanted to have done and that they took our best interests to heart throughout the process.

I have worked with Michael & Ivan for the past 4 years.  They have helped me find two beautiful units, one in Brickell and one in South Beach.  Their extensive knowledge of both these markets helped me find the perfect units.  They are incredibly competent, professional, responsive, and not pushy unlike many other real estate agents.  I recommend Michael & Ivan to anyone looking for a real estate agent.
