What do Clients Say?

I met Michael Light through a mutual friend about 3 years ago. He earned my business right away by talking to me like a friend, not a salesman. I have entrusted Michael to market several of my properties in Brickell since meeting and he has always exceeded my expectations, in fact, he sold my last property on Brickell Key for more than asking price. I even referred my close friend to Michael, whom he represented as a buyer at The Four Seasons Residences in Brickell. I would highly recommend Michael's services to anyone looking to purchase or sell Miami real estate.

I purchased my first property through Michael Light in 2010. This came about because my son was starting law school in Miami, and I thought it would be a smart investment to purchase a Miami condo for him, rather than pay rent. Prior to my purchase at Marina Blue, I knew very little about the different areas of Miami and even less about the Miami real estate market. Michael showed me his impeccable knowledge of all of the Miami areas and helped guide me to Downtown Miami. During the first year of ownership, I watched property values skyrocket and it solidified in me that Michael's recommendation of Downtown Miami was a very smart one. Because of this, I decided to purchase a second Miami luxury condo in Downtown Miami at 900 Biscayne Bay, again based on Michael's recommendation. I would encourage anyone to utilize Michael's expertise and knowledge of the Miami real estate market.

I met Michael 3 years ago when doing research on the Miami real estate market and he quickly gained my trust with his professionalism and more importantly his honesty. In 2010, I purchased a Brickell condo based off of Michael's recommendation which has turned out to be a great investment. He didn't sell me a condo based off of my budget, Michael found me a condo that best suited my investment goals. Since my purchase, Michael has represented me in leasing my unit and has even taken care of maintenance issues for me. At first, I was a little nervous about being so far away in Canada but with Michael just a phone call away, I trust that my condo is being well taken care of. I am so happy with Michael, my investment, and my continued return, that I continue to refer Michael business from friends and colleagues that are interested in purchasing a Miami condo.

We are located in Norway and purchased a condo in Miami through Michael Light. Working with Michael has been a pleasure from day one. Since we did not have the chance to travel to Miami, we purely had to trust Michael´s advice using phone and email. Michael helped us find a Miami condo which matched our criteria and then went to the condo to take a lot of pictures which really helped us get an impression of how the condo looked. We ended up purchasing a condo in Downtown Miami without ever flying to Miami to see it or meet Michael in person. As the process of purchasing a condo in the United States was completely new to us, we had to find a realtor which we could really trust, who kept promises and who knew the city of Miami well. We contacted several realtors but Michael stood out from the crowd from the beginning. Many realtors did not respond to any of our emails or phone calls. This was not the case with Michael. We had a lot of questions, as this was the first time we bought property in Miami, but Michael was always quick to respond to our emails and always made himself available to answer our phone calls. In those cases when he was in a meeting or with other clients, he always called or emailed back as soon as possible. Michael is also very knowledgeable about the property market in Miami. His good behavior and professionalism made it easy to trust in him. We are more than happy with Michael´s services and the Miami condo we purchased. Should we decide to buy or sell property in Miami again, there is no doubt of whom we will choose as our realtor.

Michael totally understood what we were looking for and did not waste our time. He was very accommodating to our schedule and needs; we live in New York City and had very limited time to research and visit properties while in Miami. We also came to learn that most realtors don't work on weekends but Michael made every effort to coordinate showings for us, even on Sundays! Michael was very knowledgeable about the Miami real estate market and gave us great insight when it came to our apartment. He also went out of his way to educate us on all the differing neighborhoods throughout Miami in an effort to help us make a more informed decision on the location of our purchase. Michael's assistance continued even after the closing of our condo. We purchased a unit at Paramount Bay and it was decorator ready. Since we are in New York City, we didn't have a chance to oversee all aspects of the build-out so Michael made many trips to our new condo to meet with our contractor to make sure everything was proceeding as planned. The overall experience of working with Michael was great. I will continue to recommend his services to everyone I know who is interested in purchasing Miami Real Estate.
