Our experience in working with Wayne was outstanding! He is very knowledgable about the local market and real estate procedures. Wayne is also honest and sincere. He certainly went above and beyond our expectations.

Thanks to Wayne we were able to negotiate a reasonable purchase price and buy the home that we will live in for the rest of our lives! His experience regarding contracts and closings were comforting when we finally reached that point.

Wayne is the example of what every realtor should be!

We chose Wayne because of his knowledge and professionalism.

We were out of town and Wayne took ownership in selling our home.

He took care of our home, like it was his.

That's going the extra mile.

Wayne went above and beyond in every aspect of our search for a home. We maybe were a little fussy in terms of finding a perfect fit and he was more than happy to handle our search. Also, our closing process was a bit high maintenance to say the least (to no fault of his), and he was essential at getting the lender and seller on task so we could move into our new home.

"Excellent" rating of patience is an understatement. He made us comfortable with the process from the start and went above and beyond in every regard.

We could not ask for anything more than what Wayne accomplished. Even with the west side of Traverse City being a popular area for purchasers at this time, Wayne did not hold back on making sure our house was well highlighted through magazine print and a beautiful drone video of the inside and outside of our home which was shared on social media. He guided us well on prepping our home to make it beautiful and ready for showing. He was proactive throughout the entire process, which gave us confidence that we were being taken care of.

Wayne worked very closely with us in designing and modifying the sales campaign. When it seemed to need adjustment, he adjusted. We greatly appreciate him.

We felt very comfortable with Wayne and appreciated how accessible he was. He was honest with us, even when telling us things we didn't really want to hear!

Wayne is an all-around good guy in addition to his exceptional skills as a real estate agent. He is very in tune to the buyers wants and desires, he has great knowledge of the local area, and is available for questions and discussion regarding properties just about anytime of the day. Seems to drop everything he's doing to show you a property if he's available.

Wayne was outstanding in the sale of our house. We had three weeks to get it on the market and cleared out due to a job move. He worked around our schedule and was there helping where he could. He kept us informed all the way and was very strategic when dealing with buyer extensions. Even with dealing with a long distance closing, everything went off smoothly.

Wayne was very good and I would recommend him to anyone with property to sell. Market conditions dictated the lengthy time it took to sell.

We had our property listed with other realtors with no success, certainly due in part to sluggish market conditions. I had seen Wayne's ads in the local paper and decided to give him the listing.

Because we live in Arizona our property was in Michigan it would be impossible to evaluate some of the criteria above.

We renewed our listing agreement several times with Wayne , which should be a strong indication how we felt about him.

I can't say enough positive things about Wayne. He was patient through a fairly long process of finding the right property for us then made things happen very quickly when time was of the essence. His personality meshed extremely well with ours. I have bought many properties in the past but this was the first time it was an enjoyable process. Largely due to Wayne.

Being out of town, and not being able to be present for the negotiation process, we relied on Wayne to handle everything. He did exactly what I requested and even facilitated a 5 day closing process. Very impressive.

I chose Wayne from an internet search and based on comments from previous customers. I then had a meeting with him that solidified my opinion that he was the right person for what we needed. Friendly, detail oriented, and knowledgeable. We made an excellent choice.

Wayne is very competent and knowledgeable and handled the sale very well. He especially handled the unorthodox behavior of the other real estate agent (not Century 21) very professionally.

We absolutely HAD to sell our current home so that we could buy our dream home on a lake next to family. We came to Wayne with what we thought was an impossible task--listing, selling, and closing our home in less than three months. The previous year we had listed with another realtor for a short 6 month contract to see what the market was doing and we never had an offer--not one.

Wayne had our house on the market within a few days of us agreeing to list our house with him. He did such a phenomenal job! Professional pictures, a Drone service, and a beautiful description! The very same day he listed our house on the market we had someone call to view it. Our house was sold within the first week of being on the market!

Wayne went over and above--helping to negotiate with the perspective buyers when they had no representation, making useful suggestions based on market knowledge and our unique situation, and finally negotiating the sale!

Because of Wayne's hard work, we were able to spend our summer on the lake at our new dream home and met some new friends (the people that bought our old home!) I will forever be grateful to Wayne for all his hard work!

Wayne went above and beyond to sell our house. He promptly responded to all of our concerns and his professional assessments and opinions were spot on. He met contractors and gas company workers at the property to meet the buyers concerns and keep the deal alive. I would whole heartily recommend Wayne and if I sell another property he will be the one contacted.

I called Wayne because he was the listing agent on Zillow. We had our own agent for our home sale but when I spoke with Wayne he was very knowledgeable, polite, low pressure and helpful. We had some time restraints when we were able to look and he made every effort to meet those and exceeded our needs. He also was very fast and helpful Answering any concerns or questions and was a great liason with the sellers. He was friendly and worked all hours to help us come to a satisfactory purchase agreement. He was honest and seemed to genuinely care about us. It was a great experience to work with him.
