"Mike was our agent for the sale of our large lakefront home in Orlando. Mike helped us price our house extremely well, enabling us to sell our home for a great profit for us and in a very timely manner. I would highly recommend Mike for the purchase or sale of any home, large or small. He will spend the time getting to know you to make sure you are getting the best value if you are buying. If you are selling, he will take the time to make sure you are attracting the right buyers! Our time is valuable and we really appreciated the promptness and efficiency with which Mike handled our sale."

"It’s very important when you’re making such a huge decision, not only financially, but also regarding where you are going to put down roots and raise your family, to ensure you’re making the right decisions. I can say with full confidence that I believe Mike understands the importance of the above and would treat anyone he works with as well as he has me and my family. Without that kind of confidence, I’d be very reluctant to put my name behind Mike or anyone for that matter, due to just how important a real estate transaction can be. All that being said, I can do it here enthusiastically! "

"Mike Derenthal and his team are outstanding! I found Mike to be dependable, honest and honorable. There a chance he is part magician as well, because no one expected our house to sell so quickly or for the price we wanted. We have very limited knowledge of real estate having only bought and sold one house, and Mike held our hand the whole way through. Then, 8 months after selling our house and moving to another state, he was still there to answer questions and help us in our next endeavor as well as having a genuine interest in what we were doing and our well-being. And they have killer signs for your front yard!"
