Testimonials


Rahul Sajwan  

Mike sold my townhouse in Glen Allen extremely fast. He brought his photographer in one day, the next day it was listed and the next day he was bringing me an offer. The best part- he sold my house for the highest price per square foot of any house in my neighborhood for the past year. So he did exactly what he promised- he sold it fast for the absolute most amount of money. There were several moments of tough negotiations after the buyer performed their inspection. Mike handled the negotiations like a professional. I was just thankful he was on my side negotiating. I credit Mike's marketing plan with getting my house sold fast and his negotiation skills with keeping the deal together and getting me the most money. I highly recommend him.

From the moment Mike and I met, he was optimistic in regards to selling my home that had been for sale for almost one year under another company. Although my spirits faltered during the process, he never gave up. His years of service along with his many resources proved to be an asset. If anyone can sell a property, Mike Hogan can. I would not hesitate to use his services again, or recommend him to others.

Mike Hogan helped me sell property @ 2819 E. Grace Street Richmond VA. Mike's expertise and knowledge in the real estate industry is simply amazing. If you are looking for someone who communicates effectively and is extremely professional Mike Hogan is your guy. I personally would recommend his services to family and friends.


Dave Legge  

Mike helped my wife and I sell our first home. We were moving out of town and needed to sell quickly. Mike told us what we needed to do to get the home ready to sell and helped us set the price where he thought the market would move quickly on it. The house showed well and we sold within a month above the price we originally asked. The entire process all the way through the close went smoothly, Mike was there for us the entire process and took care everything we needed. He answered every question we had timely and expertly. I would highly recommend Mike to anyone looking to buy or sell. If and when I look to move again, Mike will be the first one I call.

Mr. Hogan helped me buy a home in Church Hill. I was buying the home using all cash- it was all the cash I saved my whole life. I was worried about trusting a real estate agent but one of my friends recommended I use Mr. Hogan. He trusted him so I decided to use him as well. He did not disappoint me. He worked hard for me and helped me get a great price on a great home. You can trust Mr. Hogan.

Mike has shown me a few homes in the Richmond area, and I was very pleased with all of the showings. He proactively suggested homes that I should consider, while doing research on the ones I was interested in based on his listings. He was also responsive and willing to be flexible with his schedule (in arranging showings) - something prospective future homeowners appreciate!


Lauren Shaw  

Mike helped my buy my home in Ginter Park. I really had no idea what I was doing but he stepped me through the process and made it easy and very fun. He's awesome to look at houses with- he made me laugh the entire time. There were some problems during the closing process and I was so happy I had him negotiating on my behalf. He made quick work of solving the problems and got me a little more money back as a result. If you are looking to buy or sell- I can't imagine anyone wanting to work with someone else. His reviews are dead on- basically put- the guy is awesome.

Mike Hogan was an intricate part of my/our home selling and buying process. We received a contract on my house to sell in under two weeks! Mike's negotiation skills were on point during both sides of the selling and buying process. His advice always sounded well researched and sound. I never had to wait to hear back from Mike and he always answered my numerous questions. This was probably one of the better aspects of working with Mike. He was available at all times to answer questions or show us a house. His staff was also wonderful to work with and were quick with responses and emails. I have already recommended Mike Hogan to someone trying to sell a home. I would without any reservations recommend Mike to anyone looking to have an seamless sale or buying experience in the future! Mike helped make our dreams come true!!!

I had the pleasure of working with Mike and his colleague, Alicia Pittman, during the recent purchase of my first home! I cannot even begin to stress just how instrumental these two were during the entire process! In light of the challenges associated with finding a dream home - and one that would satisfy the many requisites of my chosen lender - Mike and Alicia were there to lend their expertise and guidance at every turn. My very first consult was with Mike, who'd agreed to meet with me on - of all days - the 4th of July! Yet, I quickly learned that this was merely a glimpse of the dedication I would encounter over the course of the next few weeks. I was subsequently introduced to Alicia; who was tasked with assisting me, wherever needed, while Mike was out of town for a few days. I must say, I have met very few 'people', let alone 'agents', who are as knowledgeable, attentive, engaging, supportive, resourceful, and TOLERANT! From the beginning, Alicia was readily available - day and night! - to answer any questions I had, no matter how complex or seemingly senseless. When not immediately available, she was always prompt in returning my calls. Over the course of viewing many different properties, Alicia remained surprisingly mindful of certain attributes that I'd sought in various homes; and was equally intuitive in pointing out when something would either present with issues to the average homeowner, or would pose a potential conflict to my own personal needs. Even in my moments of indecisiveness, she managed to masterfully balance the art of communicating her expertise, without interposing any personal bias. As my home purchase also involved financing of a few minor and some major repairs/improvements, my lender managed to up the ante - with more hoops than I could have imagined! - in completing the inspection and appraisal phases. Again, Alicia was there to spearhead and delegate where needed - flawlessly. Though the process of this particular sale was in no way cut-and-dry, Alicia's keenly diplomatic approach in addressing each matter proved to be nothing short of indispensable!! That all said, I feel blessed to have been led to this team, and am eager to refer ANYONE seeking an Agent who is experienced, insightful, and devoted to the satisfaction of their clients. I would most definitely recommend this team of real estate professionals!


Meghan M  

If you are looking for an agent look no further than Mike Hogan! He was great to work with in helping us find a renter for our home. Whenever we had a question he was very quick with communication and was fun to work with. We will most certainly be going to him when we sell the home. Wonderful experience!


Gerhard M  

We listed our home with Mike and were very pleased with his real estate knowledge. He and his team effectively communicated their plan, and also provided timely weekly updates as to the status of the sale in every portion of the process. Once an offer was made, our house sold on the scheduled closing date despite some back and forth with the buyer, thanks to Mike's prompt handling of the information. Mike was very upfront and honest about our home and the current market and provided several options and suggestions along the way to help us sell our home.


Ross K  

Mike Hogan was an excellent realtor from the start of my process to the finish line. I was a first time home buyer with little to no knowledge of how the process works. Mike was there every step of the way answering any and all questions I could throw at him. It took me a while to find a house that was perfect for me, during this time I probably looked at fifteen houses. For each and every one of those fifteen houses Mike was able to show me the house within 48 hours of expressing interest. I undoubtedly would recommend Mike to any potential home buyers and most certainly would use him again if that time comes.


Gloria C  

Mike seemed to be available at most any time we wanted. That's important particularly when you working with a limited period of time to find the right home. He presented himself as very easy-going, but with a professional attitude.


Mike K  

Mike has helped my buy three homes over the last 10 years. I have found Mike to be professional, knowledgable of the market and easy to work with. I would highly recommend Mike to anyone looking to buy a primary residence, a second home, or investment property. Thanks for all the help Mike, keep up the good work.


Brian R  

I have worked with Mike for over 9 years now. Mike is top selling agent year after year because of his knowledge of the market, his professionalism, and his hard work. It is not uncommon for Mike to working on deals for me at midnight or very early in the morning. He takes on my business as if it his. Another great thing that Mike offers that most agents do not is his ability to work with investors. This is beneficial to you whether you are buying or selling. Mike has been an investor himself and know this market extremely well. I would highly recommend using Mike to any of my friends or colleagues.


Lisa Madden  

Mike was extremely knowledgable, He was always quick to respond to me when I needed help or had a question. He made my selling process wonderful...Mike is very professional and i Highly recommend Mike


Mike M  

He is very friendly and is very knowledgeable of the area. Mike worked well in finding a new home for me speaking with the other lenders. He actually also makes a really good salsa that is second to none as I had some at his office one day.


Mike Holland  

I have known Mike Hogan for seven years and have bought Three properties with him. I have found his expertise to be extremely helpful. His experience and knowledge is among the best in the greater Richmond area. Mike understands and advises RE investors extremely well and he is also great with new home buyers. He knows exactly what it will take to bring a property up to rental standards and he’ll quickly recognize what a home may need for a new owner to most enjoy. Mike Hogan is a true Pro who knows the markets well, spends the time necessary to stay current and always has insight you won't find from other agents. I would recommend him without reservation as he is well above the average RE agent. I'll be contacting Mike again as soon as I'm ready to buy or sell.

A few years ago I decided I wanted to become a real estate investor. Mike took the time to thoroughly understand my needs and what I was looking for. He was open and honest about properties that weren't right for me for one reason or another. One day he called to tell me he had found "the one" to get me started. It was so perfect that I think if I hadn't invested in it, he would have. He put my needs first ahead of his own. What more could you possibly ask for from a true professional? Mike is great to work with and I trust him completely. The next time I buy or sell real estate, Mike's the one I will call.


Edith C  

Mike helped me sell my home in Midlothian. He came highly recommended by a good friend. He was extremely fast to respond to my initial phone call and I found that to be the case throughout the entire process. He was extremely responsive whenever I had a question. He was very proactive with his updates and communication. He developed a plan for marketing my home and it worked! He sold it very, very quickly for a lot more than I expected. I credit Mike's experience and professionalism in getting my home sold. We ran into problems with the buyer and he was able to work through every problem with a creative solution. I highly recommend Mike to anyone looking for a top notch real estate agent that just knows how to get things done.
