"I want to thank you so much for how you have handled the sale of my unit. I knew from our former dealings that you would do an exceptional job and that has been proven by the results of not only the quick sale but also the increase of the sale price over the asking price. I am thankful that you have expanded your business to include real estate, it makes so much sense for you to handle the transaction with your knowledge of the property. I'm happy to hear that the buyers are excited about their purchase, I wish them many good years of ownership.”Ed & Nancy deBoer

He gave great advice, always in my best interest.I would recommend Mike for anyone looking for a realtor.Kent Hayden
Mike is an excellent realtor. He knows the market well and the important ins and outs, was extremely professional and always went the extra mile before and after the purchase. He made the process as seamless and smooth as possible. I felt comfortable knowing I had him in my court and I very much recommend him.Caitlin Chalmers
“The service and personal attention I received from Mike Young was exceptional. He is truly a high-caliber professional and his knowledge of the local market and negotiating skills were key in ensuring that I received the best offer for my home. Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, I would highly recommend Michael. I could not have asked for a better Realtor to facilitate the process of selling my home.”Eric & Melissa Belkin
“I think you’re the first realtor we’ve ever dealt with to give us a report like this, especially so soon after listing. One complaint that I often hear about realtors is the seller seldom hears from them with an update. Even if there’s no action, I think it’s important for the realtor to touch base with their client even just to say there’s been no action. Congrats to you, you are an awesome realtor!”Kathie Smillie
"The service we received from Mike Young was exceptional! We could not have asked for a better Realtor to guide us through the process of selling our home in Squamish. His knowledge of the local market and community helped us a great deal and the extra effort he put into meeting with buyers secured us a deal. Thanks Mike!"Peter Ritchie & Makiko Yaguchi
FIVE STAR SERVICE! Where do I begin? We are first time home buyers and are new to Squamish. At this time, we can only afford a 1 bed 1 bath condo. On these properties I don’t imagine realtors make anywhere close to what they would on a house. Let me tell you that fact does not change how Mike operates. He was so professional and so kind to us. Not only did he take time showing us several properties, but he even acted as our tour guide showing us all of the Squamish highlights. Mike spent so much time with us over the next few months and then after all of his hard work we decided to hold off on purchasing at this time. Despite all of his time and effort he was so understanding and stated he truly wants us to be happy with our decision and he would gladly assist us when or if the time becomes right for us. I cannot say enough great things about Mike as a realtor and as a person. When the time comes, he will be our go-to guy! Thanks again for everything, Mike! You’re amazing!!!Haleigh Klapak
I have known Mike for several years in his role as the property manager for the strata at the Studio SQ building. I came to respect his knowledge, advice and support provided to the strata council during my 6 years as a council member. With this in mind, it was a very easy decision for my wife and I to choose Mike to represent us in the sale of our unit. His communication is second to none, he provides regular updates and a personal touch which makes the whole process very simple for the buyer or seller. If you are looking to buy or sell in Squamish, Mike would be the one person we recommend to represent you. Thanks again MikePaul Claproth & Hazel Morley
Mike Young took all the work and worry out of the process of selling our mother’s apartment. He is patient, respectful, trustworthy and ever-ready to answer questions along the way. I would be happy to use his services again in the future.Grant Dawson
Living in a small town, we all have several friends who are realtors, and so choosing one is tough. I interviewed several and Mike impressed me from the start – preparing documentation on his services and pricing as well as an appraisal and community comparison of my property before our meeting.
Overall, I had nothing but the best experience. Mike helped me decide what I did and didn’t need to be done for the best sale offer, provided great insight in the midst of tough decisions and did everything he could to make the process not only easy but successful for me. Even a potential buyer raved to me about how personable, helpful and informative he was.
All in all, Mike did an exceptional job, going above and beyond, and I would recommend him to anyone.
Thanks Mike!Tania Music
Mike Young is the realtor my 90 yr old father chose to sell his apartment at Eaglegrove. Mike is very knowledgeable, conscientious and reliable. Because Mike is also the propery manager for Eaglegrove he was up to date on the strata council and could provide detailed information regarding an upcoming project. He was very courteous and respectful with my dad who requires a lot of patience to deal with.Sandie Jackson
"We had a very positive experience with our realtor Mike Young. We found him extremely reliable, knowledgeable and personable. He would always follow-up promptly with any questions or concerns that we would have. He was really patient and supportive with us as we went through the process of buying a home for the first time. We found him to be very trustworthy due to his genuine nature, the fact he would always give us a straight and honest answer, and how we always felt that he was putting our interests first. Throughout the house viewing process, he never put pressure on us, but he had a good read on the market and helped to encourage us when it was advantageous to act. He eventually helped us find a home that met all our criteria and we were very grateful for it! Even now that we have possession, he continues to act as a support and resource for us. He truly has gone above and beyond. If you are looking for an sincere, dependable and hard working realtor, we strongly recommend Mike Young!"Will Prescott & Angela Isaac
Larry & I would like to thank you very much for the quick & efficient way you handled the sale of our townhouse. We were extremely happy with the outcome!You kept all our concerns foremost which was very comforting. Larry & I would highly recommend you to any individuals who are in the market for selling.Larry & Dinah Preuss
Mike did a great job representing me in the recent sale of my condominium at Eagle Grove. He was always professional and very prompt --even when we were comparing offers over the internet when I was overseas!Gordon Mulligan
Mike did an amazing job selling my home....it was only on the market for a couple of days! Even though the selling market was strong, Mike was working on the sale before it was even listed, showing it and talking to other realtors. His advice during this short process was excellent and he made the whole selling experience easy and effortless. Thanks for an excellent job, Mike!
Mike Young, a knowledgable and skilled professional with years of experience in the real estate industry. Very easy to deal with as a quick and profitable sale of my house proves his expertise!
Thanks Mike!Dan Wallin
I apologize for taking so long to do this. I have always intended to thank you for all you did to sell my Mom's apartment. You are very knowledgeable in your profession, flexible with your time and helpful with all of us. I especially thank you for being attentive to my Mom and including her in the selling of her home. I will certainly recommend to anyone who is looking for an agent in the Squamish area.Myrna Dawson
My wife and I are moving to Squamish, BC from Ontario. We have been communicating with Mike for over a year now. Anyone who has ever done this before knows you need a true professional on the other end. I have dealt with many realtors in the past and Mike stands miles above them all. He makes himself very available, has some of the best communication skills, and will never make you feel rushed. When it came time to buy a place our lender was giving us a hard time with financing due to an issue they felt had not been remedied. This significantly delayed the purchasing process of this property and there was a very high likelihood we were going to have to find another property. Mike knew how much we loved the view this property offers and he wasn’t going to sit on the sidelines while the lender made a decision. I have never seen anything like this. Mike did so much research, contacting many different parties, and digging up of information to provide to the lender. Any other realtor would have made their lives so much easier and had us move on to another property. Not Mike, he went in to absolute Rockstar-mode, presented a massive e-mail with numerous attachments, this must have taken him hours, AND he single-handedly convinced them to change their mind. It was brilliant! Our Mortgage Specialist called me to tell us we have been approved and spent the rest of the conversation complimenting Mike Young. Our mortgage specialist is in the top 1% in Canada with RBC and he said Mike is one of the best realtors he has ever dealt with, so easy to work with, very knowledgeable, and that Mike was the only reason this deal is going through. I know this review is becoming lengthy, but Mike is worth it. If you are looking to purchase a home in the Squamish area, I HIGHLY recommend Mike Young. We were so fortunate to meet Mike, and we look forward to working with him for many years to come!Matt Rowe
