After hiring two different agents to market our family’s home in Newton without success, we were referred by a neighbor to Michael Spurr. After Michael explained the market being down, he encouraged us to rent the property until the market returned.
That made sense to us. Michael then evaluated the house as a rental, offered suggestions on improvements to attract quality tenants. He found us quality tenants for the target date and asking rent. The family we rented the house to were never late with the rent and were lovely tenants. Because both my sister and myself lived out of state, Michael managed the house for us too. He was always attentive to the tenants needs, maintenance was done on time and the accounting was clear and transparent.
After two years the market rebounded, we felt confident to offer the house for sale again. Michael listed the house for sale and within a week we had several offers and the house sold for above the asking price!
At no time were we ever frustrated because we could not contact Michael, he was always easy to reach, honest with expectations and was spot on in the rental, management and sale of our family home. We would hire him again and encourage other to do so too.
You did an outstanding job at taking care of the house, thank you.
