Testimonials

Here's what my clients have said about working with me on their DC real estate journey.

Buyer | Seller

If you want a Realtor® who gets you a house and does it in an average manner with average attentiveness and average service, I'm sure you can just pick anyone here on Zillow, for the most part. However, if you want a Realtor® who is *always* on the ball, responds via text or phone no matter what the time of day, is on top of everything that's going on, is relentlessly cheerful even when things are going sideways and you're freaking out, answers all your questions patiently, puts up with TMI emails, visits prospective rentals and videos them so you can actually see what it's all about instead of just static pictures, covers your butt if the property isn't suitable, and is all-around professional and knowledgeable, go with Michael Sheridan. When we ran into problems, he immediately took care of the issues and went to bat for us. We knew he was "On our side" from day one. The fact that he…

When we ran into problems, he immediately took care of the issues and went to bat for us. We knew he was "On our side" from day one. The fact that he's a delightful conversationalist and incredibly upbeat doesn't hurt either. After we moved in, he brought our lease all set up in a folder and then conducted a very thorough house inspection, catching little things (like tiny scuffs and such) that I wouldn't have seen in a million years. We set up our cross-country (Idaho to Virginia) house rental through him, and while moving and renting a new house is incredibly stressful, working with Michael made it easier. He's a first-rate Realtor® and when the time comes to actually buy a house here in the Nova or DC area, we definitely going with him. 500 stars but he gets five stars because that's what the rating system allows. Top-notch in every way. Full disclosure, I enjoyed his company so much that I'm arm-wrestling him into lunch under the auspices of "Showing me the area". I know this review sounds very gushy, but having dealt with indifferent, bored Realtors® before, Michael is a true breath of fresh air.

Michael helped to change my life. Buying a home is a stressful experience. From the beginning I was plagued with doubt because I didn't feel prepared enough, I didn't think I knew enough about the area, so going into the process I felt a bit unsettled. From the very beginning, Michael was very responsive. I ask a lot of questions and communication is very important to me. Michael exceeded my expectations in all areas. He is responsive, he is timely, he is knowledgeable, he is straightforward, but most of all he is a calming presence during a time when you will need it the most. Because of the nature of buying a home in the Northern Virginia area time is not of the essence. He was always willing to work with my schedule and take me to see a home with very little notice because he understands the time constraints. I would filter through all of the listings he sent me and make my decisions…

He was always willing to work with my schedule and take me to see a home with very little notice because he understands the time constraints. I would filter through all of the listings he sent me and make my decisions on which ones I wanted to view and he would be willing to take me out on really a moment's notice. He explained the process fully, cradle to the grave, and he was patient through all of my questions. And with my budget not being anywhere near most of the properties in this area, I still felt like a million-dollar client working with him. I would recommend Michael 100,000%.

Seller

Michael was a fantastic agent and partner through the whole process of selling our home. He gave us great advice on getting our home ready for sale and he put together high-quality sales materials, including a beautiful slideshow highlighting our home's special attributes and professional brochures for potential buyers to take with them. He was very enthusiastic about our home and neighborhood, and he was always responsive and knowledgeable when we had questions. We were extremely pleased to receive multiple offers following Michael's hosting of our first open house and, from there, Michael assisted in every aspect of the sales process from negotiation with the buyers through a home inspection, contingencies, and closing. We closed on our home sale 35 days after we listed with Michael and got above our list price - a truly excellent result!

Michael was available almost 24/7 answering any concerns that I had in addition to keeping me abreast of market changes within my condo building as well as areas around my condo and also VA as a whole. He provided weekly updates with changes in areas around my residence that impact my probability of selling and adjusting accordingly. His updates consisted of detailed graphs and followed how many “hits” when people looked at my condo website as well as a multitude of listings both nationally and internationally. He also promoted my condo by attending a variety of businesses speaking about my condo. He answered all of my questions patiently and was very optimistic that it would sell in a short amount of time which it did! In summation, Michael is the best Realtor® that I ever employed.
