The Olear Team Testimonials

I was the executor of an estate in Buffalo and needed to arrange for a clean-up of a house, sale of the contents and eventual sale of the house. The house was a shambles at the time- poorly maintained and very dirty. It was impossible for me to attend to it as I live on the west coast. My lawyer recommended Michael. Michael and his team arranged for a cleanup and sale of the contents and property for prices which exceeded my expectation. He consulted on all issues and advised me about best procedures. I highly recommend his service.

Michael and his team did an excellent job for me, and made the process of selling my mom?s home from across the country a very easy task! This included cleaning, painting, removing personal property as well as selling the condo in less than a month.

The Olear Team was very, very helpful in selling my family home. Since I live in California and the house was in the Buffalo, NY area, I felt it was important to have an agent who came with good recommendations and who I felt I could trust, these qualifications were realized. The team oversaw all of the preparations for putting the house on the market and then guided me through the legal paperwork. The house sold in less than a week, and the ideal buyer was found. I couldn?t have been happier with the results.

Thank you again.

I am very pleased to have this opportunity to let you know how pleased we were with the services provided by you and your company during the recent sale of my mother’s home. From the first day we met you at her home in Buffalo to our most recent long distance phone conversation, the professionalism, sensitivity and efficiency of your entire team has been more than commendable.

What could have been an arduous and complicated endeavor was eased by your team?s effort. Your knowledge of the market yielded a quick offer and a smooth selling process. [?] If asked by friends in your area, please know you will receive an unequivocal “thumbs-up” recommendation from us.
