I highly recommend Mike Stone to anyone who needs a real estate agent.  He went above and beyond the call of duty during my home buying process.  He is a true professional who has his client's best interests at heart as he acted very ethically and responsibly while working with me.  Mike's knowledge of real estate is quite extensive and he generously provided me with lots of information and advice that proved invaluable.  He is very responsive and always followed up on important matters.  Rare to find someone who is so pleasantly easy to work with. Can't praise Mike enough for the fantastic job he did!  Would love to have him as my realtor again in the future. H. Huang
Mike was great to work with. He listened and paid attention to what we were looking for, and he shared ideas without being pushy. He was always quick to respond to emails/texts/calls, was never late during appointments, and since he knew the area really well, he gave great advice during negotiations. Thank you, Mike! Diane and Neil
My wife and I cannot say enough good about Mike. We have dealt with several realtors in recent years on several real estate transactions. Mike exemplify's how we all hope our real estate representative will act on our behalf. He is a good listener and takes heed to our likes and dislikes. Thank you Mike for finding us our home and negotiating on our behalf Allen and Donna G.
Mike Stone was very patient in showing us properties for over 6 months before we finally found the perfect home. He did thorough research on all of the properties with a very close attention to all the details we were looking for. He was very knowledgeable about the localities we were considering. He is a person with a pleasant demeanor and positive attitude. We recommend him highly Krishna and Ramani
We were looking to relocate back to CA from OR and decided on the Sonoma County area. Mike took us around for about 4 months to see various properties (could only make the drive down about once or twice a month). He was always looking out for what we wanted. NEVER tried to push a home on us or just try to get a sale. It was always about following the process...when the house is right we will know it. He always made himself available to us for when we made the drive down. Our plans unexpectedly changed when my husband got a full time job offer in Santa Cruz so we are now looking for property there. Mike was very understanding and wished us nothing but the best of luck in finding a home. We would highly highly recommend Mike if you are buying or selling a house in Sonoma County Christine Shellard
Mike had a great deal of patience in assisting us to purchase a home in Santa Rosa and gave us good advise on how to bid for the property. He was very helpful in working with us on the inspections. F. Martin
With a tight budget and a difficult market in Sonoma County, my partner and I went into the home buying process pessimistic to say the least. That all changed when we began to work with Mike. Not only did he have crucial insight into the market, but he truly made us feel like we were his only clients. Aside from his availability and thoughtfulness, his low pressure attitude and deep knowledge of every aspect of real estate made us feel incredibly confident in all the difficult decisions that go into home ownership. Mike encouraged patience and a deep understanding, spending almost six months with us before we found the right home. Finally, the escrow process, which many dread as the most stressful part of buying a home, was a breeze with Mike. His upbeat and pleasant demeanor didn't stop him from being a shrewd and aggressive negotiator who made sure we got the lowest price possible. I would recommend Mike to friends, family, and anyone looking to brave the Bay Area housing market Dylan Harper
Mike was a fantastic partner to my wife and I in buying our first home in Petaluma, professional and responsive throughout the entire process. He made us feel like we were the only clients he had during every phone call and meeting, and we never felt pressured to make any decision we weren't comfortable with just to move the process along. Mike is also incredibly thorough and took the time to study details that others may have missed. He offered a wide variety of support to us as well, from negotiating strategies to motivational letter editing, even just taking the time to explain the process of buying a home, that were all so helpful to us as first time buyers. Perhaps Mike's best trait is that he is just a genuinely nice and good person. He is honest, fair, and truly wants his clients to be happy with their purchase first and foremost. We enjoyed working with Mike and would highly recommend him. A. Shimada
Mike Stone is the best. He's knowledgeable, patient, easy to work with and exceeds expectations every single time. We have partnered with Mike twice in the past five years; initially to buy our Santa Rosa home and more recently to sell our home so that we could reallocate out of state. Thanks to Mike's market knowledge and superior negotiation skills, we were able to get exactly what we wanted within the time frame that worked best for us. Beyond transactions, Mike has helped us keep our home in tip top shape by connecting us with a plethora of great people - plumbers, electricians, tree trimmers, landscapers, handymen, etc. Josh Jackson
We read Mike's online reviews and chose him to find our Sebastopol house on a couple of acres as we sought to flee East Bay crowding and urban living. We really chose well! Mike quickly found us the ideal property in a highly-competitive market. There were four competing offers that were all very strong. Mike kept in constant contact with the other agent and strategized with us to create an offer that would stand out. This was the key to not only getting our offer accepted but avoiding a counter offer at a higher price from the seller. Now we are very happy home owners with exactly the situation we were looking for. Mike went above and beyond just connecting us to a great property, though. He introduced us to all the amenities of the area, provided lists of service people, advised on how to evaluate well and septic conditions, expertly guided us through the loan process, and gave patient, detailed answers to all our questions. Mike is a wonderful combination of a seasoned professional with a laid-back personality and he made house-hunting in Sonoma County a pleasure Kathy R.
Mike helped us through the house buying process from start to finish. He was knowledgeable about every single detail (in many cases more so than trained inspectors). He guided us through each phase of the process and helped us negotiate our dream home at a great price. He's responsive, thorough, and professional. During the home buying process and inspections, he was present for each (even when we could not be there!) and advocated on our behalf. When lenders or others were sluggish, he prompted them to keep the purchase on track. We are greatly appreciative and would highly recommend him. Lesley and Matt
He is not only a professional, but absolutely trustworthy and a pleasure to work with. Took him only three weeks to sell my home, almost too fast. Marc and Diana S.
Six weeks after listing we closed escrow at full price. Mike was a pleasure to deal with the entire time, displaying the best qualities my wife and I have grown to appreciate over 40 years of buying, owning and selling homes. He has a wealth of experience, but a subtle touch in guiding his clients wisely, leaving them plenty of space to feel comfortable in making their own decisions. Brian W.
Mike Stone is the best in the business! My husband and I were first time buyers and were very specific in what we were looking for in our first home. Mike spent time showing us many homes in and around Santa Rosa and was very knowledgeable in every community that we went to - pointing out the pros and cons of each (i.e. school districts, traffic noise, desirability, etc.). When we found the home that we liked, he helped us every step of the way in bidding, filling out forms, inspections, and everything in between. He is very knowledgeable in everything regarding owning a home. From house upgrades and maintenance, he made sure we understood everything that we were getting into. I would highly recommend Mike as a realtor because he did a thorough job in helping us find our first home in Sonoma County! He was very pleasant to work with and made the whole purchasing process a breeze. Highly recommend! Hanna D.
Mike was hugely helpful with the purchase of our new home. He shared detailed information every step of the way. I was out of the country for a crucial portion of the process - Mike was supportive and went above and beyond. He communicated with my lender, inspectors, insurance representatives and contractors for quotes to make sure everything went smoothly. We highly recommend Mike Amber Hodson
Mike Stone far surpasses any prior expectations I may have had of any realtor in any real estate transaction. His market knowledge and expertise was evident from the moment he listed and quickly sold my home. He is considerate of both the sellers and buyers needs and time and I have no hesitation in giving him the highest recommendation as a realtor with the utmost expertise in his field. Thank you Mike for all your hard work involved in the sale of my home, especially your 'behind the scenes' research and negotiations which made the selling of my home such a breeze for me from beginning to end. Christine K.
I can't say enough nice things about Mike. He is the opposite of one of those pushy, overdressed, insistent, fussy agents. He doesn't force his opinion on you but is very knowledgeable. You will be happy with him! J. Dallara
Mike is an amazing realtor that anyone looking to buy or sell a house should definitely choose. He is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, dedicated, and hardworking. I was impressed by Mike the entire time...we had great conversations/discussions, he took great pictures of our home and he had some great ideas! I was also incredibly impressed that we were able to close in less than 30 days, Wow! Being out of state sellers, we had to rely on Mike a lot, and he was there for us every step of the way. He is the best! Justin and Jennifer F.
I loved working with Mike. Very approachable and easy to discuss concerns noting pros/cons with knowledge and expertise. I will definitely contact him in the future if I need to. Gladys H.
We will be recommending Mike Stone to anyone we come across that needs a real estate agent in the area. Mike was very professional, courteous, communicative, friendly and confident through the entire process. Finding the right home to buy can have a lot of ups and downs. Having someone knowledgable and level headed guide us though all those peaks and valleys was important for our success. Mike is someone we found we could depend on through it all. Mike also has a lot of knowledge and wisdom about the area but also things like construction methods and materials, local schools and area attractions & amenities, etc. All of his knowledge was invaluable to us. We are very happy with our outcome; We purchased a great house that really meets our needs and will for years to come. Mike helped us tremendously to get here and he has our gratitude and customer loyalty should we ever need an agent again Mike E.
Mike represented us this year on a single family sale and also our purchase of a condo. He worked with us and made many helpful suggestions on offering and asking prices that gave very good results for us. The purchase was well under asking and our sale well over list. All paperwork was handled very professionally. Mike is very knowledgeable. We contacted several potential agents and were impressed with Mike's credentials. He is a licensed real estate broker and Realtor, with his own office and with years of experience. After meeting with him we were impressed by his listening skills, knowledge and sensible approach. We asked him to help us think through what was needed and appropriate to be done to our house to get it ready to sell. As a result of these conversations, we decided not to do any major internal remodeling, but focus on items of deferred maintenance and exterior cleanup. This was mainly because comparables in the development indicated that we would not be able to add significant value with a major (expensive!) remodel. While this project was underway, we saw a recently remodeled condo listed for sale and contacted him to show it to us. We fell in love! It had been basically stripped to the studs and rebuilt. The condo is a lower floor corner unit, nicely shaded in summer by the well-kept landscaping. It was also listed at significantly over other units in the complex. Again, Mike was helpful in discussing offer options with us. We made an all cash offer well below list and also below our max (still well below list). The process involved counter offers and the knowledge that the owners were considering another offer. We came back with a 'best and final' at our max and got the place! I'm sure Mike's negotiating skills helped get us there. When it came time to list our house for sale, Mike suggested we list it at the max that I thought we could get, with the idea that we could always reduce price. His insight into what was going on in the market was amazing. We got over ten strong offers in three weeks and ended up selling for all cash at more than 10% over list L. Hartsough
Mike definitely deserves five stars. This was the first property I had ever had to sell. I didn't know what I was doing. After interviewing several realtors, we picked Mike. This was a good decision on our part as he made the process easy to understand and guided us along the way to a sale at a great price. He was always available to answer all our questions and concerns that we may have had. Mike always explained things step by step to make sure that we understood what we were doing. I'm sure that there are many excellent realtors in Sonoma County and Mike ranks right up there with them. Richard Meza
Mike helped my brothers and I sell our late mother's home in Windsor. It was an easy seamless process from beginning to end. He explained the complicated process of real-estate very calmly and clearly. His years of experience in the business was clear to see. I feel very lucky to have found him and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home. Kenneth A.
I will say if you have Mike Stone on your side, you will be in luck in getting your dream home quickly and at a reasonable price. Mike helped us buy our new house recently. He worked tirelessly, coached and guided us throughout the purchase process. His unbiased views on various properties tremendously helped us in making the right decision.He got me the dream house and virtually eliminated competition in a multiple offer situation with no substantial increase in price. He has outstanding knowledge of real estate market, and mortgage process. He is simply awesome, easy to approach, nice to talk, and fun to work with, I wish him great success. Sanjeev G.
I did a little online research, and chose Mike because of his outstanding track record and his ability to consistently get results. Mike came by my house on several occasions prior to my listing the property, and offered not only insights into the current market valuation of the property, but valuable information regarding the proper "staging" and appearance of the house for prospective buyers. Once all was in readiness, the house went on the market, and we had what ultimately turned out to be the "winning" offer in just three days! Can't ask for better than that, and the house sold for more than our original estimate of its value. If you are out there looking for someone to represent you in either a purchase or sale scenario, you can stop here, look no further, and call Mike. His attention to detail, constant communication, sage advice and experience made the entire experience effortless and simple. I highly recommend him, and you will be glad you gave him a call.... Steve Alvernaz
Mike Stone is a top-notch real estate agent! If you are looking for an agent with integrity, finely honed negotiation skills combined with a down-to-earth demeanor, I highly recommend him. Mike's knowledge of real estate, and the local market, is extensive. What helped us through the selling process was a combination of his brokering abilities, as well as his ability to put us at ease every step of the way. I'm so glad I got the chance to meet Mike and work with him. Jan and George
My purchasing experience would have been a nightmare withtout Mike by my side. His knowledge in the real estate arena made me feel confident about his ability to help me find and obtain the right property for me. His patience and calm nature through the more stressful moments kept me grounded as well. I would recommend Mike in a heart beat and look forward to working with him again :-) Terry M.
My wife and I recently completed our new home purchase in Santa Rosa California assisted by Realtor Mike Stone. I would highly recommend Mike. He is a real professional and a genuinely nice and very helpful person. It was a pleasure to work with Mike. Mark H Mark and Misook
We sold our house in 2 weeks!!! We are very happy with his work. Mike advised me on how to stage my house to maximize the sales price. He even pushed me to increase the sales price!!! We sold it higher than I expected. He is extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend him. Mike is honest and very easy to talk to. I am sure you will like working with him! Good Luck! Stephen S.
I was from out of the area and Mike was very good in locating and finding a home that suited my needs. He walked me through the process and followed up with all my concerns. Mike also helped me by recommending local contractors and merchants, that I asked about. I would use Mike again as my agent and would highly recommend him. Mark K.
Mike was outstanding to work with. His knowledge of the Sonoma County realestate market and the changes in the market helped us a lot. He simply made us feel like we were the only client he was dealing with (when we knew otherwise). We believe we are in the house we wanted because of Mike, otherwise we probably would not have had the chance to even make an offer. We would recommend Mike without hesitation, whether you are buying or selling. You won't be disappointed. Stacy and Bill M.
We looked at so many homes...Mike was patient and stuck with us through a long and difficult process. Always available and responsive, we had a great shopping experience. And when it finally came time to buy, Mike worked with the seller and banks to help expedite and streamline the entire process. Thanks, Mike, for all your hard work!! Melissa F.
We had a very positive and smooth transaction with Mike Stone. He was very knowledgeable and patient. There were times when we felt overwhelmed and anxious, he completely stayed calm at the helm and guided us through the process which can be a very emotional and overwhelming process. Buying a country property is way different than the other real estate dealings we had been involved in. Thanks to Mike, we sped quickly through all the many inspections. Again, the task daunting but Mike kept us at a pace that we seemed to have danced easily through the days that led to a timely and satisfying close. Mike and Sally O.
Mike did a great job. He is not pushy, but gives a calm assessment of pros and cons. I was glad to have his advice and counsel and I recommend him. Mark F.

Mike was the PERFECT Realtor. Never persuaded us to buy something that he felt was in bad shape or something that was out of our price range, was very knowledgeable and courteous, immediately responded to questions. If we wanted to see a house Mike would fit time in even in an hours notice. In this crazy market, Mike had the ability to stay connected with the seller's Realtor and this is what I believe got us oor home from 18 other offers. We will use Mike Stone for our property buying and selling needs. Charles and Ranae Adametz
We found about Mike Stone while surfing the internet on home sales sites. Mike began sending us information via emails customized to our criteria. Mike is an amazing person, both prompt and efficient. It has been really fun going through the process with him. He has always been patient and so knowledgeable. But most importantly he is dependable and generous with his time and expertise. Mike understands what home buying means to a first time buyer. He gives good down to earth advice. He patiently worked with us week after week, offer after offer, until we finally has an offer accepted. And then he gave us information and choices about lenders and home inspectors. He took care of the little things like phone nos for water and electricity, recycling and alarm systems, cleaning personnel etc.. Suruchi A.
Mike has been from day one, very accomodating and informative throughout our long ordeal in purchasing our investment home. We felt very at ease through the process because he walked us through each and every step of the way. He is very knowlegeable in this field and was able to answer our questions and concerns. Even now that we have purchased our home, he is still very helpful in providing us information needed to fix and rent our home. We see him now as a good friend as well as a professional realtor that we would recommend to anyone. Thank you Mike Stone. Leticia G.
There are not enough stars here to accurately rate Mike. He is AMAZING! I was on the market searching for a home with another realtor for 3 months with no luck. I had put offers on 8 properties and due to her inability to negotiate and represent me in the best light, I did not get accepted for a single one. After much frustration, I did some "realtor shopping" and luckily found Mike. Mike was always available and ready to show properities to me. I worked with him just one week and had already found the perfect home AND got my offer accepted. I am moving into my new home on Monday and Mike has been with me every step of the way. From finding inspectors, contractors, etc. He went above and beyond what I expected and appeared to be available 24/7. I recommend Mike highly. I did my share of shopping around and even worked with an inadequate person for 3 months, so have a good understanding of good vs. bad and Mike is TOP NOTCH. If you want a realtor that works for you, then you need to hire Mike. You will not be dissapointed. Yasmin B.
It may not be possible to find anyone who cares as much about what is in your best interest during a transaction than Mike Stone. I think his knowledge, expertise and negotiation skills were invaluable in my ability to find and secure the right property for my needs. With any other agent, I don't believe I would have been able to end up with a property that fit my needs so well! Kai H.
I highly recommend Mike Stone. He worked with me long distance and in person for over one year. He is very patient and is an expert in his field. The closing process was fraught with complications caused by delays at Wells Fargo Bank and Mike was there every step of the way, with my best interest in mind. If I ever need assistance in real estate ventures, I would most certainly use Mike again. Gerda S.
Knowledgeable...easy to work with...patient...looks out for your best interests...experienced...thorough...goes the extra mile and a heck of a nice guy! Highly recommended. Mike M.
Mike is great - he worked long and hard and cared that we got what we wanted. Conscientious and responsive - I highly recommend Mike Lucy B.
Mike is fanstastic, kind, professional, generous, knowledgeable and patient. We just closed on our property in Occidental after almost 2 years of looking, and he was invaluable. Sometimes I wondered if we were his only clients even though I knew we weren't! He really knows the area so well and had so much wisdom to offer. Thank you Mike! Emily G
We can't say enough about Mike's performance, dedication, responsiveness and professionalism. He patiently guided us through a long process on a short sale purchase (7 months!!!), with foresight and wisdom at every turn. Never a complaint or sense of fatigue during this very long process which was obviously not very profitable for him. He also negotiated for us very well, and saw every issue coming ahead of time. ABSOLUTELY use Mike Stone for any and all real estate needs. Scott and Lynette F.
Completed a purchase with Mike in February. What impressed me most about Mike was his professionalism and his knowledge of all aspects of the purchase. Thanks to his tenacity, Mike kept the process flowing and we achieved a timely close and occupancy on schedule. I would highly recommend Mike to anyone who is either buying or selling. Very personable, good natured, and again, very knowledgeable.. Dave B.
