Mike is a fantastic person. He helped us make the right decision for us after helping us see many different homes. He was honest and trustworthy and helped guide us towards purchasing the right home for us. I highly recommend Mike to anyone who's looking to buy or sell their home.
Bob W.(Buyer, 2016)
We have worked with Mike in the past and value his attention to detail, his sincere interest in understanding our objectives / needs and his overall effectiveness. Mike helped us through the whole process of buying and selling a home and without hesitation recommend him to friends and family.
Ofelia S.(Buyer, 2016)
Mike went above and beyond for me when I looked to purchase a condo. He sent me weekly listings of locations within my budget, and when I was interested he went all out to research the building, neighbourhood area, and unit for me. He even went out of his way to accompany me when meeting up with the real estate lawyer, to ensure the process was comfortable and smooth. Mike ensured the process of property buying was completely stress-free for me, especially seeing as it was my first time. Will definitely work with Mike when buying future properties!
George S.(Buyer, 2016)
Mike is a great agent. He was very patient and accommodating. We looked at over a dozen homes late in the evening, over the course if several months (we were picky, and had a budget we had to work with.
Mary S.(Buyer, 2016)
Mike goes above & beyond what is expected . He walks you every step of the way & always gives advise in the best interest of the client . We have dealt Mike twice and look forward to working with him on the future. You can't go wrong with Mike Knecht!!!!
Grant H.(Buyer, 2015)
To say we had a positive experience working with Mike would be an understatement. Mike was extremely personable, & professional with every aspect of our home buying experience. From our initial viewing, to final closing, & then some... no less than a five star rating. Mike is highly recommended.
Tiina M.(Seller, 2015)
Fantastic experience. Mike sold our house fast and within our expectation of selling price. Mike is personable, reliable, friendly, accessible, knowledgeable and very professional. He brought the Toronto buyers to the country, so we didn't end up working within the local country agents/opportunities only. I would trust Mike with any of my future real estate needs.
Kristen C.(Buyer, July 2015)
I was extremely pleased with Mike's performance. Upon phoning him to ask for help in finding a place in a specific area of Toronto, he immediately sent me a link with a number of places to look at. I narrowed down my search and spent a day going with Mike through the houses. Mike was very flexible when I had him take me back to one of the houses we had already looked at (this was the house I chose in the end). The paperwork that Mike needed to complete was done efficiently and quickly. I felt I was in very, very good hands with Mike and will definitely suggest him to others as well use him again myself.
Andrei T.(Seller, 2015)
Mike was recommended to us by some friends when it was time to sell our house in 2015. We met with him and immediately knew he was the realtor for us. It was a given that with his vast experience he would sell our house quickly and efficiently. What we were really looking for was someone who understood our situation and who would provide us with peace of mind at what was a particularly stressful time for our family. I would not hesitate to recommend Mike to my friends or colleagues for any real estate requirements. And did I mention Mike is great fun to work with? And he has also become a good friend!
Victor D.(Buyer, 2015)
Mike was a dedicated and persistent agent assisting me in visiting over 20 properties in my search for a home. He never seemed deterred and was always positive throughout the search and never wanted me to settle for a place short of my original expectations. It was an overall an excellent experience and will definitely work with Mike again in the future.
Richard A.(Buyer, 2014)
We met Mike in 2014 and found him to be very professional. We explained to him what we wanted and the area we were looking for and he found us a home right away. We only had to look at 2 homes and we had found our dream place we are extremely happy with still. The fact that we only had to see so few homes is a testament to his ability to understand the needs of his clients. I would recommend Mike to anyone looking to purchase a home.
Terry R.(Buyer, 2014-2015)
Mike helped our eldest daughter and son-in-law find the perfect home for their growing family and did so in a very short time. He handled every aspect of the purchase in a calm, friendly and professional manner, and was always approachable and available to answer any questions. Buying a house was never easier! Mike was also able to find the ideal rental house for our other daughter, and again managed to make the entire process a smooth and stress-free experience. We would recommend him without reservation.
Lindsay C.(Buyer, 2014)
Mike helped me to purchase my first home, and I am very grateful that I had him as my agent as a first time buyer. From the first time we spoke, Mike was incredibly patient, attentive and very knowledgeable about the neighbourhoods I was looking in to. He helped by sending me information and listings for areas I was interested in and was thorough when answering my questions. Mike was also very honest and didn't just tell me what I wanted to hear which was greatly appreciated! He helped to connect me with great lawyers who helped to finalize the purchase of my first home. Overall, Mike made the home buying experience an easy and very smooth process, and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to purchase a property.
Susan W.(Buyer and Seller, 2014 - 2016)
We chose to work with Mike over the last few years during three house transactions because we find he is honest, trustworthy, professional and experienced. Mike's greatest strengths are his calm demeanor coupled with his excellent attention to detail. He is "bang on" in his property evaluations and has an eye for spotting potential home issues that could come up in an inspection. He used his broad experience to help guide us through all our decisions and we never felt pressured or obligated in any scenario with him. He is also well connected to other services that help in the house buying/selling process such as financial, insurance and staging companies. We appreciate how Mike was always available for us and provided ample data to make decision making easy. We highly recommend Mike for any home transactions.
Sophie R.(Buyer and Seller, 2010)
My husband and I have worked with Mike Knecht for about 5 years. Having him as an agent is great. We never felt like we were forced or pushed to purchase a home just for the sake of it. He has always been honest with us about homes whether it was to purchase or sell and almost importantly he listened to what we had to say. Mike would make the time to even call and say Hi, to ask, and see how our family was doing. For him it wasn't only about real estate but we made a great friendship with him. We will continue to support and work with him. We wish him all the best in the near future. Regards, Sophie Rodis
Cecelia C.(Buyer, 2010)
I met Mike by chance at an open house. We spoke for a few minutes that afternoon and he was very knowledgeable about the neighbourhood I was interested in. I took a bit of time searching for a home, I think it was over a year, and during that time, I never felt any pressure from Mike. If I was interested in visiting a house, Mike made the arrangements to see it. If I had any kind of question, Mike tried to answer them to the best of his abilities. It was great working with Mike and with his patience, he found the perfect house for my family! If I had to do it all again, I wouldn't want anyone other than Mike helping me.
Joanne F.(Buyer and Seller, 2009)

Ivanna F.(Seller, 2007)
Mike is very knowledgeable in the industry. His recommendations resulted in me getting exactly what I wanted in price.
Louise B.(Buyer, 2006)
We have worked with Mike previously and he has assisted us in buying and selling 3 of our homes. He listens to what we want and is tireless in helping us find it.
Angel S.(Buyer and Seller, 2005 - 2011)
Mike is a great agent. He listens to your needs, makes educated recommendations, explains legalities in terms you can understand, and always allows you to make decisions within your own comfort level. He has helped us sell and purchase two homes, with our last home selling in 3 days! Mike is very professional and knowledgeable, with many contacts in the industry. I would use his services again and highly recommend him. A. St. Pierre
Jim M.(Buyer, 2003)
We had a great first-time home-buying experience with Mike as our agent. Mike handled every detail in a pleasant and caring manner. He listened carefully to what we were looking for, and answered all of our questions. He proactively found new leads as we refined our requirements. Mike is very knowledgeable about the Toronto market and knew what it would take to get a good deal for us.
Dan B.(Buyer, 2001)
Mike was very professional and extremely helpful during our new home buying process. We were very impressed by his knowledge and he gave us the best advices regarding the house bidding process. He was honest, friendly and patient with us, making the entire home buying experience easier, highly recommended.
Marlene M.(Buyer, 2001)
