"Mike sold a house for me in Naperville IL. I appreciated his honesty with regard to my house to be sold. In a very tough market Mike guided us through a home sale and got it done. Our home was in very nice shape. The issues were raised by MIke and I listened and fixed. Mike was very good when it came to what I consider the hard part, negotiation. He listened to and communicated very well with me. I appreciate concise, direct, and to the point, and MIke communicates very well. Mike handled this transaction as an expert. I would use him again."



"He is very good
He knows all the details about the house and area u want. I have known mike for almost 20 years. He is very friendly and knowledgeable."


"Mike did a great job of helping us find a new home. you showed us as many houses as we wanted and only asked us to make an offer when we were ready. He did not try to tell us to change the offer. He gave us a great package of comprable valued homes so that we could make our decision on what to offer. Mike has connections to allow you to get the appropriate legal advice, inspections, and any other help that may be needed along the way. Mike is fair and honest and has a good sense of humor. He is a pleasure to work with. one of the days that we were looking for homes he was out of town but his agency covered for him which was awesome so he works for a good agency as well as him being a good agent.

Mike was always prompt and well prepared for our showings. He had the listings printed out he had the cards printed out when we went to make an offer.

The computer systems at the agency seem good as well. You will get a great report when you go to purchase or sell the home. I would highly recommend Mike for a first time buyer. An out-of-town buyer. Or even an experienced buyer. When you compare him to other real estate agents he's in a class by himself"



"Mike was excellent. He is very knowledgable, friendly and made our first home purchase go smoothly.

Mike is NOT one of those realtors who's only there until the ink dries on the sale contract. He has been so very helpful in making us feel at home - through contacts and referrals, recommendations, and even checking in with us to see how we are settling into our new home. I would highly recommend Mike to anyone who's looking for a top notch realtor!"



"We would highly recommend Mike Long to anyone in need of a real estate professional. Throughout the home buying process we were not only able to rely on his knowledge and experience, but also his willingness to assist us with inspections, contractors, and the many questions that would arise."



"Mike Long has helped me sell two homes and purchase three. He exemplifies all of the characteristics I look for in a business partner - honest, knowledgeable, great follow up, and completely transparent through it all. I highly recommend Mike as an agent."



"We recently moved from Phoenix to Naperville and knew next to nothing about the neighborhoods, schools or anything. Prior to our move, Mike Long spent so much time with us on the phone answering questions, offering advice and emailing information on everything from schools to local restaurants and attractions. We spent hours communicating prior to our one house hunting trip and by the time we showed up, he had every house we needed to see lined up and ready, as well as a couple others that came. We flew through two very long days of houses, visiting our final two homes three times each. Mike Long got us a great deal on the house we wanted and we had it under contract before we left town. Through the whole process, he stayed involved and helped us work with our lender, lawyer and all the other people involved. Mike really led the process from beginning to end and made the whole thing so easy for us.

If you're looking for a realtor to trust with the whole process, who will make time and who actually cares about his buyers, you could do no better. I highly recommend Mike Long."



"We've worked with Mike to both buy and sell homes, multiple times, and he's done an excellent job. He's reliable and consistently communicates with his clients. Mike is an expert in the the market and western suburbs and makes every effort to make the process of buying and selling homes seamless! I would highly recommend Mike to anyone looking to buy or sell."



"Mike helped us find and eventually sell our condo in Bucktown. We really enjoyed working with him. Mike was extremely knowledgeable in every facet of our real estate transaction. His patience and personal touches made us feel as if we were one of his family members. We plan on using him for future real estate transactions and would recommend him to family and friends without reservations. If you are planning on buying or selling a property in the future call Mike and you will be happy that you did so."



"Mike helped us on both the buy and sell side. He was very responsive, understood what we wanted in a house on buy side and knew expectations for transaction on the sell side. We were able to complete entire process from preparing house to list to moving into new house in less than 2 months. Highly recommend Mike and he also provides experts as part of marketing to help prepare house for listing."



"As first time home buyers, my wife and I could not have been more pleased with the way Mike worked with us and made himself available for questions and concerns 24/7 throughout the home buying process. He was professional, insightful, and knowledgeable concerning the local market. Mike has now helped a number of our family members to buy a home and will continue to be the first person we reach out to should we ever need a realtor again.

Early on in our experience with Mike we saw very clearly that he was going to give us his full attention and respect despite making a relatively smaller home purchase. He truly works to be of the highest character and attentiveness for his clients and will be the realtor that you return to should the need arise again.

It would be a mistake to not consider Mike Long as your realtor."



"Mike Long went above and beyond for my wife and I!
Mike has a lot of knowledge and very good negotiating skills.
He was able to get us our home for less than the bottom of our budget. We will definitely use Mike when we sell/but a home again."



"Real Estate Agent professional, Mike Long, recently helped me to sell my property. We had multiple offers and the process was quick and easy. If you are looking for an agent to help you sell your home or buy a new home, Mike Long is the agent to use. Mike is professional, intelligent and knowledgeable and goes over and above for his clients. He takes the time to make sure you understand the process and answers every single question, every time. He has an amazing marketing plan and does his research to make sure you have the right contract price, whether you are buying or selling. Mike Long is an expert in whom you will have trust and confidence. Thank you, Mike!"



"Mike was great! He was always on time, well prepared, and conscience of our needs. He worked hard to sell our home. We initially chose Mike over the other 3 realtors we interviewed, not because he gave us the highest listing price, but because he was honest, straight forward and had knowledge and data to back up his numbers. Throughout the listing, showings, negotiations, and sale of our home he stayed true to these qualities that made us choose him in the first place. It was a pleasure to work with Mike."



"Mike did an excellent job for us! The Chicago real estate market was very new and different to us, coming from out of state and from much smaller cities. Mike was able to explain the nuances of the process to us and help us get through difficulties in order to close. I am very thankful for Mike!"



"Our family was in the process of relocating to Chicago and Mike definitely contributed for a smoother transition. He provided helpful insights on areas that would meet our expectations as well as timely responses to emails and any additional requests we had. He was also able to work with our schedules and visit several houses until we found the perfect one. We definitely recommend Mike and will definitely use him again if we ever decide to purchase a new home in the Greater Chicago region."



"Mike was so wonderful to work with! He helped my husband and I find our home in the neighborhood of our choice. He was very patient and attentive and always made himself available to us. Once we decided on a house he did a great job negotiating a price we were very happy with. I would highly recommend Him!"



"If I could give Mike Long 6 stars, I would! He made the entire process of looking for and buying a home, from start to move in day, incredibly easy, enjoyable and efficient. As a single, first time home buyer, I had more questions than I care to admit to, and Mike was supremely patient and helpful with each of my inquiries. He truly works nonstop, always looking out for what is best for his clients. Mike is professional, comforting, fantastically knowledgeable and a true joy to work with."

"Mike was referred to us and now we are the ones referring him; that says something. As first time home buyers and being new to the Naperville market, it was invaluable having someone know every neighborhood in such a big city very well and not spending time on places that would be out of the question based on our wants and needs.

To that point, the house we ended up in was better than we could have ever imagined and it wasn’t one that we would have noticed; Mike found it FOR US.

Mike is thoughtful and prepared, kind but firm in his advice. Great guy and great realtor."



"Mike is diligent from the beginning to the end of the process. Always there to answer your questions. He truly gets to know you to ensure that you are buying the right home in the right location."



"Mike was such a pleasure to work with! He was so patient with us through the whole home buying process, he provided us with valuable information and his expertise all along the way. He was always available to answer any questions or provide reassurance. I would absolutely recommend Mike to anyone looking for an amazing realtor!"



"We have used Mike Long as our realtor for years. He has helped us buy our starter house and our forever home. He is so knowledgeable and knows the area very well. Plus he is fun, which makes those long frustrating days looking for just the right house a little bit better! I highly recommend Mike Long!"



"Beginning our journey in regard to our first home-buying experience, we went into it with a great deal of anxiety and trepidation. Through happenstance, Mike turned out out to be the first and only real estate agent we worked with. We couldn't be more happy it turned out that way. He was incredible in terms of his knowledge of the area we were looking to buy in, all the steps we would have to go through in our home-buying process, how the whole process would work with our lender, what to expect in terms of closing costs and the process in regard to closing. He was available to us to answer questions whenever we had them. He was there to comfort us whenever we got anxious in regard to the process. He has an incredible list of contacts on all levels: i.e, the incredible real estate attorney he referred us to, the wonderful home inspector he referred us to. Everyone he recommended did an incredible job. To top if off, he had dinner delivered to us the night we moved into our house. It was just one less thing for us to worry about that day. I would highly recommend Mike to anyone looking to buy or sell a house. He's an incredible real estate agent and even more an incredible person who really cares about the people he works with."



"Everyone looking to purchase, rent or sell a home should do so with Mike Long. My wife and I retained Mike as our realtor to purchase a home in Illinois and couldn't have been happier with his expertise. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the all aspects of the real estate market. Mike listened to the attributes we were hoping to find and showed us the properties that matched our criteria. He remained a part of the process up through the closing and afterward. Don't waste your time with any other realtor - use MIKE LONG!"



"Mike emodies the principle of "making it happen". My wife and I needed to sell our house quickly in order to relocate for a new job. Given it was the middle of winter, the odds were against us in both time and maximizing sale value. Once we made the decision to list, Mike was able to set us with stagers, repairmen, carpeters, and put us on the market inside of two-weeks. The first weekend on the market, we had over 25 families come through our open house. Within three days we had an offer. Unfortunately that offer fell through due to indecision on the buyers part. When that happened, Mike spent the day calling his contacts, reaching out to others that expressed mild interest and otherwise might be a potential buyer. Within 24 hours, Mike hand delivered an asking price offer - in the middle of January! If you want to get your house sold, Mike is the guy."



"We recently moved in to our first home through Mike Long, Mike was so helpful in explaining what we needed to do and putting us in touch with the right people. We can confidently recommend Mike Long, who is extremely polite, professional, sympathetic and just brilliant in everything."



"We've worked with Mike on buying and selling multiple homes in both Chicago and Naperville. Mike's diligence to his clients, as well as his knowledge of the process, familiarity with the regions we were considering buying in, and understanding of our expectations created a seamless, pleasant process. I would definitely use Mike again and recommend him to anyone looking for a home."



"My fiancé and I were nervous first time home buyers and Mike helped us find the perfect home! Not only was Mike patient in answering our newbie questions he took the time to educate us on the home buying process so we could make well informed decisions. During the pre-approval process Mike recommended a range of lenders to get the best rate possible. While house hunting Mike offered valuable advice and was incredibly responsive in setting up showings... I'm talking same day notice! When we were ready to make an offer he worked late into the evening as negotiations between parties went a few rounds. Although my fiancé and I were very anxious the entire time, the plan we had made with Mike worked out exactly as we had hoped and we got an incredible deal. Once we had an accepted offer, Mike put us in touch with a great inspector that was thorough at a reasonable price. Mikes diligence and advice through the entire process made for a solid contract so closing on our new home was a breeze. Mike's personable nature helped keep us levelheaded and well informed during a stressful time. We would wholeheartedly recommend Mike to anyone who is looking to buy or sell their home. We will be certainly be working with him in the future!"



"Mike handled our out of state, tight timeline move with great efficiency, professionalism and humor! Our house hunting with Mike was so enjoyable and extremely productive. Mike was able to answer all questions and worked around the clock for us while we searched for a home during a one week trip to Illinois. Mike’s years of real estate experience were evident in his ability to navigate us through the Illinois buying process and even hook us up with an outstanding attorney. This was our 3rd time working with Mike, we have bought and sold and have always been extremely satisfied. Mike takes what can be a stressful time and uses his experience and good humor to turn it into an outstanding experience."



"Our experience with Mike could not have been more positive. As first time home buyers we were nervous and Mike put us right at ease. He not only made us feel comfortable but was sure we were as educated as possible before each decision. He is truly passionate about his work and we felt that every step of the way. We cannot express our gratitude enough."
