Mike is a dedicated, principled, and extremely knowledgeable and professional realtor who does his best to ensure that the realty transaction/apartment rental process is as seamless as possible for the would-be house buyer/apartment renter. I’ve rented apartments through Newton Centre Associates on two occasions, and have been thoroughly impressed with Mike’s customer-centric focus, as well as his thorough understanding of the real estate market in Newton and surrounding areas.
Mike recognizes that client preferences are dynamic, not static, and won’t try to make a “hard sell” or employ “guilt trip” tactics on a client when the client changes his/her mind about a particular real estate property. I’ve been at the receiving end of such loathsome tactics from unscrupulous realtors at other realty companies, and might have become resigned to accepting such treatment as “the normal course of business” in the local real estate industry had I not, fortuitously, seen a realty listing from Newton Center Associates and followed through with an appointment with Mike to see some of the listed properties then available for rent. It was a relief to finally deal with a realty company and realtor employing best practices and focusing on customer service.
I have been very satisfied with my experiences in dealing with Newton Center Associates and plan to rely on them in the future for residential moves in Newton and the immediate surrounding area.
