My husband and I recently bought a home in the Tampa Area. Before we started the home buying process, we had no knowledge of all that we would encounter or even where to start. We met with Mike on a Monday, shared our dreams for our family, and by the very next day we started receiving profiles for possible homes we may like. By Wednesday we found our dream home, and just a few weeks later we were moved in. Mike helped us on each step of the way with all of questions, hesitations, issues, and was even with us at signing. We are forever grateful for this team as they found us our dream home and made it as easy as can be for us. If you are looking for professional, relatable, honest, and trustworthy, Mike & Michelle are the way to go!

Mike and Michelle were both amazing in helping us find a house in South Tampa. We didn't know the area at all, and relied a lot on their knowledge and honesty. They worked very hard for us during our long search for the perfect house. We have now moved in and I'm so glad we had them with us throughout the whole process.

I was looking at places throughout Tampa for over a year. Mike was very patient and responsive through that process. Provided me with all listings that met my critieria and excellent comps and other important information which I was able to use in making my purchase decision. His follow up and  responsiveness was fantastic.

Mike recently sold my condo unit. He handled all the details so that I could remain in New York without traveling to Tampa to be involved.

All I can say is WOW! I had an amazing buying experience! After being contacted by at least 6 realtors I went with Mike because he is very responsive and didn't get annoyed with my first time homebuyer questions. We communicated via text, e-mail and telephone which was really convenient (especially  the texting) Mike was always on time, knowledgable and professional! I purchased a beautiful condo in a fantastic location :) We were able to go under contract the same day I saw it which was great because my lease was up and I was losing hope. I never expected to buy a luxury condo but I am so glad I did! I am so happy in my new home and the location is the BEST! I cannot thank Mike enough! I would reccomend him to anyone buying or selling. My friends and family are really impressed with where I live, all thanks to Mike!!!!!! :)

Unsure about what to do or who to trust as you cautiously return to the housing market? Go with the Mike & Michelle Team. Period. Impressively, your home is their number one priority. While I’m sure that they were concurrently selling many properties because of their successful reputation, we had no doubt that they were giving 100% effort to ours. It felt that every moment of their time was dedicated to helping us reach the very best outcome. Every text or email was returned in minutes if not seconds. We had done our research in choosing a Realtor and not one other agent maintained the level of professionalism, enthusiasm, and competence exhibited by the Mike & Michelle Team. I must stress another aspect of the Mike & Michelle Team that is truly unique. I was very pleased at how comfortable they were to work with. Phone calls last as long as YOU want or need them to. No rushed answers or dismissed concerns. As they toured our home and explained the selling process to us, I immediately felt as though we had trusted family friends on our side. It is no secret that selling your home can be a stressful event but the Mike & Michelle Team remained so focused and well planned that it alleviated most if not all of those jitters. They achieve a delicate balance of intensity in the market while being considerate of you and your family’s needs. Most importantly, they are honest and upfront—sometimes a rarity in real estate. Even at the closing of our home sale they continued to impress us with their dedication. As the title company spout out page after page, term after term, it was the Mike & Michelle Team that thoughtfully paused and clarified points for us. They made sure that we knew and understood every word. Looking back at our search for a Realtor it is almost frightening how much bad advice was out there. Had we gone with anyone else but the Mike & Michelle Team, I can confidently say we would not be where we are now. Our home had multiple offers on day one due to their excellent marketing. We received highest and best offers submitted in just days due to their skilled pricing. We closed in under one month due to their expert organization and communication. My husband and I consider ourselves very choosy when it comes to finding professionals to carry out services that impact our family’s future. We wholeheartedly recommend the Mike & Michelle Team. They’ve got your back from start to finish.

This was my first time buying a house, and im a very worrisome, OCD kinda person, Mike and Michelle were great, always answered calls and emails within 24 hrs and most of the time within an hour or two, and were VERY patient with me. They had knowledge of Tampa and Pinellas county, and offered great advice throughout the process, highly recommended.

My wife and I have been casually looking for a new home for our expanding family for nearly a year. Mike and Michelle were with us every step of the way answering all of our questions and qwelling our fears in the ever changing local housing market. We ultimately purchased a Short Sale home that we love. We had offers on a few other homes throughout the year that we had to walk away from due to various states of disrepair. We never set out to search for Short Sale homes but that seemed to be what kept coming up in our searches in the area we were looking and in our budget. I would venture to say that Mike and Michelle are Short Sale specialists. They were constantly following up up with the listing agents to help facilitate the Shot Sale forcing the other agents to stay on top of our Short Sale file. Aside from being extremely knowledgeable in their field, they were always easily reachable and were quick to respond to a phone call or email. We couldn't be happier with their level of service and communication throughout the entire process and would highly recommend them to our friends, family and strangers alike.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "Mike managed to exceed my expectations in every way..."

Local Knowledge:     ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Process Expertise:     ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Responsiveness:     ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Negotiation Skills:     ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Allow me to start off by saying I typically don't write reviews because I hold people to very high expectations and more often than not they fail to live up to them. In this case, I actually insisted on writing Mike Grizzell a review because he managed to exceed my expectations in every way. Mike is very knowledgeable, very responsive (usually emailing me back in under 30 minutes), and a great negotiator. When my wife and I were trying to buy our home the seller originally refused to entertain a financing offer, but Mike was able to work his magic and we just closed on it last week. I could keep going on and on about how talented and knowledgeable Mike is about real estate, but the bottom-line is from my perspective his professional competency was absolutely flawless. The above qualities make for a fantastic realtor, but even more importantly I think Mike is actually trustworthy. I'm not sure how many people would admit it, but I believe there is at least to some extent an inherit conflict of interest between the realtor and the client in this business. I've been jaded by a few bad experiences working with realtors in the past so I've learned to test them at the earliest opportunity to see just how honest they are. So far, Mike's the only realtor I've ever worked with that I actually think is trustworthy. Needless to say, I'd recommend Mike to anyone and I plan on working with him as long as I live in the Tampa Bay Area.

Mike has helped us find a great investment property in Tampa. It has been a long process since it's been a seller's market and great investment properties are hard to find. However, with consistent help and the local knowledge from Mike, we were able to reach the finish line! We'd recommend Mike's team to any investors interested in the market in Tampa for he puts the client's needs in the first place!

We are so happy that we chose Mike and Michelle to find the perfect home for us!! It was really important for us to find a realtor that stayed in contact with us and gave us quick responses. Michelle did just that! This was our first time buying a home so it was really helpful that Mike and  Michelle were with us through EVERY step of the process! They both did an awesome job scheduling house tours. We saw several houses back to back in a matter of a couple hours! After the first few house tours- Michelle knew exactly what I liked and what I did not like in a home. We really appreciated their feedback as well! And..for the icing on the cake- Mike and Michelle were super friendly and we had a great time with them! I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for an experienced realtor that knows the Tampa area very well!

Mike and Michelle went above and beyond my expectations. I was very nervous about listing my house for sale and having people in and out of my home because I have two dogs. Mike and Michelle were always there to help with my dogs and make sure that potential buyers were given a great showing  everytime. They did an excellent job of marketing my home and doing an open house.

After my sale, they also helped me purchase a new house. They were very helpful with their knowledge of the real estate market for which I purchased. They walked me through the different processes and steps and I'm very grateful to have found them. I will definitely contact them when the time comes to sell my house again.

This is our 2nd round of using Mike & Michelle to both purchase and sell our homes, and I cannot express how seamless they make the entire process! Mike does an excellent job of preparing you for all scenarios and easing any worries that may arise in the home buying and selling process. They go above and beyond to help, anyway they can, and I cannot say enough wonderful things about their professionalism and character as real estate agents!

Mike has assisted me with the purchase of multiple properties. He is the most responsive realtor I have ever worked with. His advice helped me put in offers at just the right prices so that my offers were accepted but I did not overpay for the properties. I highly recommend Mike whether you are looking for a home for yourself or investment properties.

We were moving to the Tampa area from New Hampshire and found The Mike and Michelle Team online. Having never met Mike prior to arriving in town, once we did finally meet, we found him very personable and knowledgeable about the area we were looking at. He went beyond most realtors I have dealt with, even looking at houses on our behalf and giving excellent feedback. He did a lot of leg work even without a contract.

We would recommend them highly!!!

I am really thankful to Michelle and Mike for helping me with my first home purchase. The very idea of buying a home was daunting at first, and they took the time and patience to guide me throughout this process. It's been several months of searching. They persisted through my picky ways ended up  finding me a really good investment and a wonderful home to live in! Even while I was on vacation they made sure they stayed on top of my purchase to ensure everything went on smoothly. I highly recommend this duo! It was an absolute pleasure working with them.
