    Mike is a wonderful realtor. As first time home buyers, Mike was very patient and responsive with all of our questions and concerns. I will definitely be recommending Mike to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

    Mike supported us on our house hunt and house sale. He knew when we found 'the one' that we had to act quickly given the current market and he walked us through the process professionally and confidently. When it came time to sell our home, it was a very stressful time personally for us and he was so supportive by checking up on us and offering help where he could with home staging, making recommendations - you name it. There are many reasons Mike has such a solid reputation in his field - he's not only the best real estate agent, he's an all-around good human.

    My partner and I found a recommendation for Mike randomly on an online real estate forum and we couldn't be happier that we did! Mike is kind, knowledgable, patient, and hard working. Being a first-time home buyer is scary enough, and in the current market, even scarier. Mike walked us through every step of the process, never pressured us to make any decisions we weren't comfortable with, and helped us purchase our dream home within a couple months of starting our search. Whether it was giving us video tours of houses we couldn't make it to see in person, helping us make well-informed offers, or simply being a text message or phone call away to answer any and all of our questions, big or small, we couldn't have asked for a better partner in our home buying journey. Thanks Mike!

    I 100% recommend Mike von Dehn. I'll be totally candid: Prior to meeting Mike, my experiences with real estate agents have ranged from at best, fine, to at worst, nightmarish. Mike was the first agent I've encountered who truly brought value to our relationship and left me feeling like I netted out much better than I would have if I had chosen a more DIY route. Three things I appreciated about Mike: 1) I reached out to Mike due to common interests and values around sustainability that I gleaned from his social media feed. His compassion in this realm and centering of the interests of others really translated to his real estate practice. Unlike previous real estate transactions, I felt like I was more than simply a means to a commission; he really did put my interests first. 2) Mike kept me in the loop from beginning to end. He shared all his strategy, thought processes, recommendations, etc., all the while emphasizing that I was in the driver's seat when it came to decision-making. It really did feel like a team effort. With other agents, I've often felt like I wasn't a part of the process and was left questioning how much value they truly brought to the table if they weren't being transparent in their work. 3) Most importantly, I'm certain I did much better in the sale of my home with Mike than I would have if I had gone it alone or with another agent. With increasing housing prices, commissions growing in proportion, and the availability of online alternatives, it's hard not to contemplate a DIY approach. In fact, I was originally going to go this route but I'm glad I connected with Mike. He and his photographer colleague really made my place shine. Their work attracted several good offers and the one I ultimately accepted left me confident that reaching out to Mike had been the right decision. I fully recommend Mike von Dehn and will be contacting him again if I ever decide to get back into the market in Guelph or the surrounding area. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions.

    My husband AJ and I have worked with Mike on several occasions, and we have nothing but great things to say about him. He was extremely responsive to our questions and desire to view homes at a moment's notice. He was competitive and worked hard to get us our asking prices and more, and was extremely patient while we worked to find our dream home together. He even helped us move in! We couldn't have asked for a better realtor, who we are also happy to call a friend.

    Mike was our agent for the sale of our home and the purchase of our new one. His calm, considered, professional, and friendly approach helped us through the inevitable stresses of the process. I can't image a person more suited to the important role he played in our lives.

    Big big thank you Mike Von Dehn! When I started my search for my next home, Mike was my first and only phone call. We had the opportunity to work together 6 years ago when I moved to Guelph and I knew he was the only person I wanted to work with again! Mike's friendly demeanour and advice based approach is extremely helpful, whether you are a first time buyer, upsizing or an investor. I am ecstatic with both my purchase and sale. There was a lot of hard work put in by all of us; Mike's advice, planning a great strategy, supported by his strong understanding of current real estate market conditions took us over the top! Inevitably when I'm ready to move on again, I will only connect back with you. Thank you so much for everything!

    We worked with Mike to buy our first house and he was great from start to finish. He knows the market and takes the time to educate you and make sure you feel comfortable with everything. He was patient (definitely not pushy) and is a great person in general which was really important to us for such a big purchase. We're grateful that he was recommended to us!
