THREE WORDS ACCURATELY DESCRIBE REALTOR® MIKE MAHLSTEDT: EXPERTISE, EXPERIENCE AND ENTHUSIASM

Mike and his team deliver excellent service. “I want my clients to know they’re in the best of hands. I am a good businessman and confident negotiator,” he says. “My job is to ensure that they have the latest market knowledge and understand the entire transaction process. After closings, I stay in touch and am honored to be the “go to” for all their real estate needs.”

In 2013, HAR recognized Mike’s service to the community with the John E. Wolf Community Service Award. Charitable giving forms an integral part of Mike’s business model and he donates to each client’s charity of choice after closing. Mike also links philanthropy to his passion for athletic competition, specifically Ironman triathlon events. In a recent Ironman, he guided a blind triathlete through the competition (a 140.6 mile race), raising more than $25,000 for the C-Different Foundation and Cherish Our Children International. In 2013, Mike raised more than $110,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

A partial list of the charities Mike supports includes:

• Alzheimer’s Association • Bo’s Place • Buffalo Bayou Partnership • C-Different Foundation • Chinquapin School • Dress For Success • Habitat For Humanity • Houston Zoo • Lymphoma & Leukemia Society • St. Jude Children’s Hospital • St. Paul’s United Methodist Church • Susan G. Komen Foundation • Yellowstone Academy

Mike grew up in the Southampton/Museum District and attended Poe Elementary, Lanier Middle and Lamar High schools. He graduated from James Madison University in Virginia where he competed as a Division I swimmer. Mike attends St. Paul’s United Methodist Church.

We were thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Mike! There is a reason he's the #1 realtor in Houston! Mike and his team were extremely professional, knowledgeable and it was a wonderful experience to work with them all.

Mike Mahlstedt is a phenomenal real estate agent. He and his team made my home-selling experience an enviable one. My friends and neighbors couldn't believe when he brought me a strong offer after just one day on the market, and that I was under contract within 2 days. I can highly recommend Mike Mahlstedt to anyone who is serious about selling their home. He will not disappoint.

Mike is a great asset to the Houston realty community! He knows the market and is in tune with his clients. It was a breeze to work with him! I just knew things were happening when we were selling our house- I trusted him and his team. We are very pleased with our recent experience of selling our home and hope Him and his team will assist us as future buyers!

First time selling a home and it was very stressful. 10 days after closing, we had to ask for the review links because none were sent to us. We chose Mike since he was the seller agent when we bought the home. We didn’t know anyone else. We listed our home (MLS#25152285) for sale at 173/sqft on July 9th 2015 when our neighbors in the same gated community were selling at 172-178$/sqft. We accepted an offer week 1 but the buyer ended up opting out with no reason. We accepted an offer September, the buyer came back wanting 9K$ more after the inspection even though everything listed was minor totaling 500$. We said no. They backed out. We were very frustrated because: 1) We signed with Mike but his assistant Shelby always replies. 2) No one would check on the house after buyers and we would find the AC set at 60F all day long, shutters left open, garage doors unlocked, toilet bowls filthy dirty etc. 3) We lost many buyers in our first 2 open houses because the host agreed with buyers that they needed sound proof windows. We were not making any upgrades plus we already had double pane windows. 4) Mike only attracted low ballers while our neighbors were selling quickly at higher prices. When we asked why, Mike would give excuses like you are on buffalo speedway, you don’t have a driveway, you are too expensive, the market is slowing down etc. all of which we would reply with examples of homes on buffalo speedway (MLS#90875406), with no driveway (MLS#8428181, 62011154), more expensive (MLS#56006725) than ours that were selling quickly. We tried to get out of our contract in Oct. but he refused although when we first met he said we could back out at any time if we weren't pleased. We escalated the issue but next day we got another offer which we negotiated back and forth in Oct/Nov. We agreed on price but the buyer ended up adding an extra 1700$ credit which we never agreed on. We could have refused but signed so we could end this relationship and get the house

Mike and Shelby were wonderful to work with. They kept the search interesting and were available for all of my questions. We stayed within our budget, and they helped me remain patient when we couldn't reach an agreement with a seller. We waited for the right property, and I am extremely grateful. I have worked with other realtors who put undue pressure on me to make a deal, and this experience was a breath of fresh air! They absolutely know the market and not only understood but respected my needs. I hope they will always be available when I need a realtor!

Mike and his team of top-notch assistants were nothing but professional and helpful throughout the process. Mike has an eye for design, knows the market, and obviously cares about his clients beyond just completing the transaction. His assistants thoroughly and quite competently take care of those minute details so that nothing falls through the cracks, and you're not left wondering whether anything was overlooked. They were available night and day, answered every question efficiently and quickly, and offered sound advice without trying to persuade me to compromise on price or convenience. I wouldn't hesitate recommending them.

Mike is everything you could ask for in a realtor and more! He is thorough, responsive, innovative, patient and as knowledgeable as they come! As stressful as the home buying process is, I never had to worry about making sure we were buying the right house for the right price because I trusted Mike's experience and expertise. Mike and his team are extremely ethical and do the right thing by everyone. They guide you through the entire process end-to-end and continue to follow up post-close to make sure you get everything taken care of. I couldn't recommend him and his team more and will absolutely use Mike for all of our buying and selling ventures.

Buyer

2014-07-24


Mike and his team were absolutely fantastic. Mike positioned the home at exactly the right level to maximize value whilst attracting buyers and the end result was much above my expectations. I purchased the house from overseas with a 7 hour time difference from Houston and overall, the process was exceptionally smooth when all things are considered. The use of technology was also appreciated and everything is completed on-line avoiding messy paperwork. Last but not least, his team is willing to help even on a number of items even after after closing on quite a few items for which they are not technically responsible. This gives the feeling that the relationship doesn't end on closing date once commissions are received. Overall, no doubt I would ask this team to sell the house all over again.

Seller

Mike and Shelby will be referred to any and all of my friends/family that I come across looking to buy a home in the area. The two of them made this process very simple and as stress free as possible.

Mike is an amazing realtor. He helped me purchase my home and to subsequently sell it a few years later. I referred him to multiple friends and they have seen the same traits. He REALLY understands the market, is a complete professional, and is attentive to his customers, regardless of the size of the purchase/sale.

Mike is simply the best. Mike knows the neighborhood and knew exactly what i was looking for. I cant put it any better than that. Once I just let him do his thing I found my place in no time. Just let the man work, be honest about what you want and he will take care of you. He is the best.

I would recommend Mike to anybody with or without buying experience. We had the best experience buying our first house. He took the time to explain in detail the process and provided a great list of houses to visit and assess our concerns. He quickly understood our needs and found the perfect house for us. Very thankful.

Highly recommend!!

I used to be a realtor, and in my years in the field, I have never worked with a more knowledgable and professional agent than Mike. From the initial meeting to the quick closing, Mike kept me well informed and well advised. I will definitely be engaging Mike on any transactions I make in the future.

Mike Mahlstedt is a very professional and friendly person. We are very happy with the service he provided us. He quicly understood our needs and tastes, and "filtered" properties in order to visit the ones that could be real candidates. We found our house in the timeframe that we planned, at the price that we wanted. We strongly recommend Mike.

Buyer

2012-03-05


Mike is more than a 5 star realtor! We would choose him again to either buy or sell property for us. My husband and I will highly recommend him to our friends. He understands the words "service" , "communication" and "professionalism" - he is the BEST!

Mike is an exceptional realtor and knows what he's doing and thanks to his support staff he sees to it that everything is timely and done right the first time.

Seller

Mike was not only competent, capable and fun to work with, he was invaluable to our home selling experience. He came over before we listed and walked with us room by room and gave great staging advice. This, along with his high-quality marketing and pricing expertise allowed us to sell our house in just 3 weeks. During the escrow process, he and his assistant kept us informed, updated and on top of things. NOT using Mike & his team is a big mistake!

Seller

Mike and Corie were extremely friendly people who we felt comfortable asking questions, and knowing we would receive answers in a timely manner. They were professional, yet still very personable. Excellent team, very much recommend.

Mike did an incredible job for us as we searched and found our first home to buy. He understood our schedule and needs, and he worked to find houses that fit them. I was impressed by his professionalism. He always showed interest and care. Most importantly, he does a good job. He knows how to negotiate and even works on his vacation. Mike will help you with buying or selling your home.

Mike and team were extremely professional and helpful. He understood my busy schedule and accomodated my needs accordingly. Mike was able to close the deal effectively and swiftly.

Having Mike represent us in the sale and purchase of a home was a great experience. He was very professional and truly went the extra mile on many occasions to get us the very best deal on both ends. We were very happy with the end result and would gladly recommend him and his team.

Buyer

Mike did an outstanding job in marketing our home. We would HIGHLY recommend him to our friends. He was professional, helpful, energetic and responsive. His rating is way above 5 stars. We believe a 10 star rating would be more accurate! Mike is truly an asset to the real estate profession and to Martha Turner Properties.

Seller

Mike and his team were extremely helpful and always on top of everything. He is knowledgeable of Houston and after my first house hunting trip he knew exactly what I was looking for.

Buyer

We loved working with Mike and Corie. We used their services to sell our current home and buy a new one. Mike's extensive knowledge of market trends in our area and his recommendations allowed us to not only get 3 offers within days of listing our home, but we closed at more than our asking price! They take the stress out of the whole process and are there to provide the advice to ensure you make the right decision every step of the way.

Seller

Fantastic realtor!

Seller

2011-05-10


Had it not been for Mike's hard work, this sale could have easily not happened. He was such a professional and worked very hard to see this through. We had a difficult buyer and Mike handled it with such professionalism. He went over and above what is expected of a Real Estate Agent to get this closed. We truly feel like had we not had Mike, this sale would have never happened. We also feel like we were able to get the sales price we got due to his hard work.

Seller

2011-05-05


Mike really knows the Houston market. He is very friendly, professional and a savvy negotiator. I appreciate all of his hard work! Corie was extremely helpful and she went well beyond what is expected. This was the best real-estate experience I have had and Mike and Corie have a long-term customer! Thank you! John

Mike Mahlstedt did a great job on every aspect of a challenging transaction -- from getting my house ready for sale to pricing to helping me get into my new place. He is professional in every respect: thorough, thoughtful, patient, data-driven, reliable and fully committed to moving things forward.

Seller

2011-03-19


Mike Mahlstedt was extremely thorough and helpful during my entire process. While we hit some roadblocks during my search (which were totally out of his control), he kept me up to date regularly. I feel blessed to have been able to work with Mike and would not consider working with another realtor in the future. Even after the closing, Mike has stayed in touch and still offers his assistance if I should need it.

Buyer

2011-03-10


Mike Mahlstedt was exceptional in evey respect, from the way he evaluated the market and helped prepare my current house for sale as well as how he facilitated the purchase of my new home. He was also exceptionally patient and diplomatically persistent, making sure that despite my crowded schedule and frequent inability to provide essential deliverables as promised, we moved forward completing both a successful sale and a purchase. I will be recommending Mike at every opportunity.

Buyer

2011-03-06


Very thorough and professional.

Seller

Mike made the process easy and treated us like he was there to help us - not to make money. Cool person to work with. If we ever decide to move again, he will be our first call.

Seller

2010-12-21


Mike is fantastic. This is the second time we've used him and were very pleased with the results both times in a tough real estate market. He is very knowledgeable about the market and has the ability to look for a creative solution to problems (our deal was very intricate--and his outside-the-box solution made it work). Definitely recommend him!

Seller

2010-10-27


We've participated in 9 real estate transactions, with 6 different real estate agents -- including a family friend on three of them! Mike reset the bar for performance, offering and coming through with a level of service we didn't even know to expect from an agent. This process was unbelievably "easy" compared to what it could have been, with marketing not even starting until after we had move thousands of miles and two time zones away. Sincere thanks to Mike and Corie.

Seller

2010-10-02


As I live in a Retirement Community, Mike saw to it that the paperwork was brought to me, and that I had a ride to the closing. When his scheduled vacation happened to fall during the closing period, he called from Hawaii to make sure I understood everything that was going to happen the next day! Corey even gave me a ride to and from the Title Company. Although I was very happy that my house sold in such a timely fashion, I feel as though I will miss seeing these very nice young people.

Seller

I would highly recommend Mike and plan on using his services in the future.

Mike was great...I would recommend him to anyone. We had some outside challenges that we had to deal with and Mike was professional throughout.

Seller

2010-07-14


Thanks Mike for everything! I think we all walked away from the deal VERY pleased! I look forward to using you again in the near future!

Seller

2010-06-04


Mike is the most knowledgable, attentive, hard-working realtor I've ever dealt with. He provided constructive guidance to both sides that really moved the process along. Our deal would have undoubtedly fallen through if not for him. He and Corie were available whenever I needed them, even for the most minor issues/questions. I will definitely recommend Mike to anyone buying or selling a house; I cannot imagine anyone being in better hands. Mike is a true asset to Martha Turner!

Buyer

2010-05-20


Mike and Corie were great! There were two other identical homes in my neighborhood that had been on the market for months. Mine sold in 1.5 weeks. I highly recommend Mike Mahlstedt and Martha Turner.

Seller

2010-03-17


Mike Mahlstedt was the only reason our house closed. It was a very difficult situation on the Seller's side and he handled it with tremendous sensitivity and compassion. We have a deep respect for the manner in which he approached this situation. Our thanks to Mike. Sincerely, Ron & Anita Potter

Mike represented us in the sale of our old home and purchase of a new one, and we really enjoyed working with him. He was extremely knowledgeable about the markets in which we were selling and buying, and went above and beyond to answer all our questions and make sure everything progressed as smoothly as possible. He had a great attitude and was always on top of our situation. We trust Mike completely and can't wait to work with him again (although hopefully not for at least a few more years)!

Mike was a fantastic realtor. He helped us sell our home and buy a new one. He was always responsive to our questions and concerns and went beyond the call of duty setting up appointments for work that needed to be done on our old and new home. He has many helpful tips regarding selling and buying a home, knows the Houston area well, and can help you see how your family and belongings will fit in a new home and neighborhood. We will use Mike again.

Buyer

2009-10-09


Our agent, Mike Mahlstedt, could not have performed better for us. He is extremely well organized and has a very strong grasp of what buyers are looking for in the Houston area, especially within the Montrose/River Oaks area. I appreciated Mike's "straight talk" as to what we needed to do to improve the chances of selling our home. I was pleasantly surprised at the increased interest in our home after we hired Mike and implemented his suggestions. Bottom line: Mike is an asset to Martha Turner.

We could not have been more pleased with our experience with Michael Mahlstedt. He was extremely knowledgeable and professional throughout the process of our home purchase.

As a foreigner having no experience buying a house in the States, I found in Mike a great source of information and a very diligent help and support for all that I needed to get settled.
