We had a great experience with Michael on both the sell and buy side and would highly recommend Michael for his expertise, professionalism and great level of responsiveness and commitment. He is also very good at pointing out pros and cons of different choices and positioning during negotiations or strategy to sell/buy. Michael is also someone forthright about things, and doesn't sugar code things just to see the deal go through. We worked with another agent before crossing path with Michael and we saw quickly that it was the right choice.

My experience with Michael as a first-time home buyer was nothing but positive. He took the time to carefully listen to my needs and wishes and was very thorough when explaining the entire process. He made himself available at all times, whether in person or on the phone. He was also very flexible and punctual for visits. Since this was my first purchase, I am glad Michael was my realtor and was with me every step of the way. His attention to detail and work ethic is remarkable and I felt confident at every stage of the process that he was providing me with all the information I needed. Without any doubt, I will reach out to Michael again for any future real estate transaction.

Michael is a fantastic agent! He understood our goals for our growing family and was able to get a contract that met our needs and led us to our very first home purchase. He was very attentive and was available to answer any questions every step of the way from going under contract to the closing. He's also extremely knowledgeable about the unique nuances regarding first time home purchasing in the District. Thanks to his guidance we were able to save money at closing. :-) Without a doubt if/when we ever need agent services again we will be absolutely going with Michael Bates and are referring him to all of our friends and colleagues.

Michael was such a pleasure to work with! He was knowledgeable and honest throughout the whole experience, putting us at ease even during stressful negotiations. He was highly responsive and easy to talk to. I highly recommend working with Michael!

Michael was everything we could ask for in a realtor. He was professional and responsive throughout our transaction. We could easily have been derailed by slow responses from the seller's realtor and title company, but Michael took a ton of initiative and got us to the table for our scheduled closing. --Update: he was just as good the second time! Michael helped us sell this home recently and made the process much smoother than we expected.

We are very early in the buying process and Michael has been invaluable as a source of information. This is our first time looking to buy a home and we are trying to build a knowledge base from scratch. Michael is always quick to respond to questions, translates complex processes well, and isn't the least bit pushy. I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the DC area.
