After being frustrated with a selling process two years prior, Michael was a breath of fresh air. He was as supportive as could be and worked very hard to help us sell our town-home. A very professional, very knowledgeable Realtor who gave us confidence that the process would be timely and the outcome would be as we wished.

Michael is a very smart, savvy, well-informed, and knowledgeable professional. He is very honest, hardworking and dedicated to making the best possible deal for you. He shepherded us through a sometimes difficult and complicated process and we ended up selling our beloved home to a lovely couple who just fell in love with the place. Michael was an excellent contact for good local (and trustworthy) professionals for repairs and other work. He has strong people skills and will work endlessly to make things work for both buyer and seller. Overall, he is a kind, respectful, trustworthy person who has great taste and who knows how to listen.

Michael helped me to both buy and sell a home and in both situations he was an outstanding agent. He is knowledgeable, helpful and an excellent guide through the process. He understood my needs and was always focused on what was best for me. In addition, on both the buy and sell side he was a phenomenal negotiator both fair and tough. Moving is never easy or enjoyable, but Michael made the experience as positive as it can be.

Michael is an excellent agent. He is very hardworking, knowledgeable and a professional of the highest integrity. Also, honest and transparent. And, he is extremely knowledgeable about our area. Michael is also a great source of local craftsman, tradesman and subcontractors. Michael facilitated both the sale of our old home and the purchase of our new one. I highly recommend him and would use him again except for the fact that he has already found our dream house.

Michael helped us to find and buy a new home and to sell our existing home. He helped us and coached us through every step from scouting out the neighborhood, seeing all the available homes, comparing the prospects, buying the house, selling the old house, and even helping with arranging the move. He even advised where to buy the cheapest moving boxes. He made these major lifetime events a lot easier and certainly less painless. We now have a new, beautiful new home and a new friend. Thank you Michael!

OVER AN 18 MONTH PERIOD, MICHAEL WAS TIRELESS IN HIS EFFORTS TO HELP US TO FIND A PLACE WE COULD MAKE INTO OUR DREAM HOME. WE ARE NOW IN THE PROCESS OF RENOVATING. HE THEN STAGED OUR HOME IN YARDLEY WHICH SUBSEQUENTLY SOLD IN 10 DAYS, AT A PRICE SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER THAN 3 OTHER REALTORS HAD RECOMMENDED. HE ALSO FOUND US A RENTAL PROPERTY TO LIVE IN DURING THE RENOVATION. HE WAS PATIENT, KNOWLEDGEABLE, AND HONEST AND CONTINUES TO ADVISE US ON THE AREA, RENOVATIONS, CONTRACTORS. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND MICHAEL.

Michael came out and met with my mother and myself and gave us a very fair analysis of our home and the neighborhood. We priced the home well above where we thought we would be and Michael presented us an offer less than 7 days later at 98% of asking price with a 45 day close. Michael was professional throughout the process and kept us informed all along the way. A pleasure to deal with and would recommend him to anyone looking to list or purchase a home in the New Hope/Solebury area.

Michael Richardson is, without a doubt, THE best realtor in Bucks County. I've moved more times than I'd like to think of, and it's always been a tough process, usually made more difficult by less than knowledgeable or unprofessional realtors. My experience in both buying and renting houses with Michael has always been painless, and usually a pleasure. His knowledge of the real estate market is so thorough that he not only knows everything about all the properties in your target area that are on the market, but he also knew what properties would be coming on the market and when. That was an immense advantage when I was looking for a specific type of house that was difficult to find, and more pressing since I was moving to Bucks from New York and there were a number of issues coordinating a buy with the sale of my New York property. Michael found the perfect property for me and we were able to lock up the deal before it went on the market. No mess, no stress!
Since I was moving down from out of State, he was also immensely helpful with an enormous amount of suggestions in getting settled in the area, where to dine, etc., and with references for plumbers, handyman, etc., etc.
To top it all off, Michael is also one of the nicest people I've ever had the pleasure to get to know. He has a certain relaxing and truly caring manner I attribute to his Southern upbringing. I don't think you can find a better realtor! Michael Duffy Esq.
Michael was fantastic! His patience was enduring and his knowledge and expertise were impeccable . I cannot say enough about Michael. He responded to our needs and requests expeditiously. All the professionalism a side, Michael's personality was great. I was very comfortable with him and he tolerated my attempt at humor. Both my partner and I deeply respect Michael and we would not hesitate to recommend him. If you read this Michael, thank you for giving us so much of your time and showing the numerous homes that only someone with fortitude could tolerate! Warmth and blessings to you!Less Dr. Twain Gonzales 8/16/2018
Michael assisted me in selling both a rental property and primary residence in a 4 month span. He is the consummate professional, providing experiential direction, guidance, and support through all facets of the process. You will not find a more qualified realtor in the area. S. Lontchard, New Hope PA, 8/28/2018
i am in investor who has now purchased several properties guided by Michael. He is enormously patient, helpful and always professional in his approach. His calm demeanor and fairness make every decision easy on both sides of the table. We trust him and he is trusted in the community. He has a wealth of helpful information and always leaves the decision in our hands without pressure or undue guidance. I can't say enough about Michael beyond the fact that he is the finest agent we have ever dealt with a our many years of buying properties. Steven Fisher,New Hope PA , 8/16/2018
Michael came recommended to me from a colleague. He is super knowledgeable about the area. He helped me find a home that met my requirements and was very patience in helping me with the decision process. I never felt pressured to make a decision until I was ready, as I was new to the area. Throughout the process, he was on top of things, kept me informed, transparent with information, and very responsive to my questions. Michael checked in on me multiple times once I moved in, connected me with painters, handyman, cleaning service, etc. to help me get settled. Highly recommended Irene Hsu, New Hope PA 9/01/2018
