"We originally thought that finding and buying a house during a pandemic was going to be very challenging, but with the right agent, that wasn’t the case! We worked with Mick, who made the process incredibly easy! Mick listened to our requirements, set us up with an automated listing report, and talked us through some of the nuances of buying in Maine (we are not residents). While we were looking at houses, Mick scheduled viewings on short notice, gave us virtual tours so we didn’t have to drive to Maine, and kept us updated via text. As we struggled with whether we loved a property, he kept reminding us that the perfect place would come along, and to be patient. He was absolutely right and we now have our dream lakefront home. If you are looking for an agent, we definitely recommend reaching out to Mick."
"If you are looking to sell or buy a home in the Lakes Region, Mick provides a 5 star service. He got top dollar and a quick sale of our home, just what I was hoping for. He was reassuring when I had doubts and knew how to navigate the process with professionalism and expertise which instilled a feeling of confidence. Mick was available day and night to answer questions and was very prompt with his responses. He went above and beyond to find a rental for us to live in when waiting for the right property to purchase after the sale of our house and now Mick is helping us to purchase our dream home. I am so grateful to Mick for all of his help and highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Lakes Region. Blessings!"
"Mick helped my wife and me find a lake front property and he was fantastic to work with. We were looking for a vacation home on Long Lake and had very particular wants. Mick understood our wants and found us the perfect home. His knowledge of the house and the area was invaluable. Throughout the whole process he was extremely patient and responsive. He also has a contact for anything you may need an expert option on. Mick is a great guy and we highly recommend you give him a call! Thanks for everything Mick! We’re still gonna have that drink on our screened in porch!"
"I worked with Mick to find a home in the area, and he couldn't have been better to work with! As a first time home-buyer, I had a long list of checklist items and he was patient, was always available to answer my (many) questions, and was very professional. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mick and I look forward to working with him, and The Lakes Real Estate, again in the future!"
"I have had the enjoyable opportunity for Mick Early to represent me in a real estate sale. He is a personable, knowledgeable and professional realtor. In his congenial manner, to both buyer and seller, Mick is very accessible and makes sure all parties in the transaction are continually well informed. He makes the paper end of the exchange stress-less. I highly recommend Mick Early for anyone considering the purchase or sale of real estate."

"We met Mick last July when we wanted to list our cabin. He was conscientious and thorough in posting our listing. The photos he took truly reflected the uniqueness of our home. Within a week we had 3 showings and 3 offers; one for full price! Mick took care of closing details making the selling much less stressful for us as we are located out of state. If you want action-Mick Early is the one to contact. We highly recommend him."
"Mick Early was our real estate agent for a recent sale and subsequent purchase in Naples, Maine. Most real estate transactions experience issues during the process and Mick was instrumental in keeping things on track and leading to successful conclusions on both ends. Mick demonstrated a high degree of knowledge and professionalism throughout the transactions. Mick was always available, prompt in his responses and very helpful in all respects. Having Mick on your side of a purchase or sale of a home makes one feel comfortable and supported. More than satisfied with his help on our sale and purchase."

"I worked with Mick buying my very first home back in October of 2018 and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. No matter what time of day, Mick was always quick to respond to any text message or email I sent, despite how pushy or irrational some might have been. Being a young woman on my own, and a first-time home buyer was extremely nerve racking and stressful but Mick really knew how to put my mind at ease and ultimately helped me in making one of the biggest decisions of my life. I am so happy with my home and so happy with my choice to use Mick as my realtor!"
"We moved to Maine from Long Island NY. We came on vacation and walked in to his office, and he showed us some houses that weekend. From then on Mick was our real estate agent for a couple years while we searched for our homestead. He was very helpful and honest about various houses and neighborhoods. We didn't know much about the area but learned a lot from him. There was a time we were interested in houses in a wide span of areas, and he gladly drove all over with us and was patient as we narrowed down our search. He was always fun to be around, and we consider him a friend as well as an agent. It was always a pleasant adventure checking out houses with Mick."

"I thoroughly enjoyed working with Mick Early. He was flexible with the listing terms and was professional, available and polite at all times. He produced several viable buyers and followed through with a rapid and efficient closing."
"I worked with Mick on a land purchase in Denmark, ME that I simply could not go without having. Through every step of the process, Mick was extremely communicative and reassuring. He answered any questions I had quickly and effortlessly, often almost within the hour if he could. He was a complete pleasure to work with, and even went the extra length to personally meet with me before the closing to go over things and calm my fears about something going wrong at the last minute. When it comes time for me to purchase real estate again in the area, I will most definitely seek out Mick to assist me in the process. I could not have asked to find a better agent than I did with him. His assistance and communication throughout the entire process was a great relief and undoubtedly most appreciated."

"Hi Mick, I really appreciate how helpful you've been with Bill and I during this real estate process. You've made purchasing an out of state home so easy. I've enjoyed the people you have connected us with. You've spent so much time on what is really a very tiny sale. We appreciate it. I am especially thankfully for the time you took today to meet the Trashman. That went way above and beyond your job description. I really want to thank you for making it happen. It's such a relief to know we can move ahead and create a peaceful little home now. Once we pull it together a bit we would love to have you over to enjoy the space. I hope you have a wonderful Spring. We look forward to working with you in the future."
"I have had the pleasure of working with Mick as both a buyer and a seller. While representing me as a buyer, he has been very helpful in locating properties that fit my criteria and quick to arrange showings when I request them (which is crucial in a market where timing is everything). As my listing agent, he has gone above the call of duty to market my property, kept me updated about showings, and well informed about potential buyer feedback. Mick's experience and connections in the community make him the ideal agent whether you are buying or selling a home in the lakes region."
"Mick was very easy to work with and the sale of our property went about as well as anyone could have expected. We would use him again without reservation."
"It has been a pleasure working with you and we are grateful for all of your hard work. We look forward to seeing you in the future."
