I was a first time home buyer who had been talking to another realtor in this office off and on for almost a year. When I was finally ready to move forward, they had moved on an opportunity in another field of work. That's when Mitchell Stoakes stepped up, contacted me, seamlessly picked up where they left off, and we began our journey. We were off on an amazing and wild ride! You see, I am not an easy person to work with if you're the kind of person who likes a direct line between two points. Yes I am laid back, easy going, very open minded, more than willing to work outside conventional boxes; but I'm also very curious, love to research my interests, and explore all kinds of possibilities (usually on the fly), explore new directions on a hunch... you know, the typical nightmare potential for a realtor. It's not something I do intentionally, it sneaks up on me too! Mitch was awesome! He proved to be adaptable, flexible, and willing to change directions, take long leaning S curves, or pull off the occasional figure eight even. He kept up with my swerves every step of the way; whatever I threw at him, whatever time of the day. He stayed calm, professional, and focused on MY goal, not his, not anyone else's interests, always focused on my goal. Mitch told me from the start that he was there to help guide me thru the process and make sure I ended up where I wanted, in the house I wanted. He did exactly that! I am thrilled (I would normally say stoaked here, but it's too close to Stoakes and I have no patience for those of you who live for tormenting others over coincidences, or whatever your torment game may be). I ended up with much better fit for me than I had ever dared hope for, and I couldn't be more pleased with the service level Mitch provided every step of the way. If your looking for a realtor who will put your goals ahead of his own, and who will walk every step with you, who is professional, knowledgeable, and personable, Mitchell Stoakes is the realtor I have no hesitation recommending.
