SUPPORT LOCAL BUSINESS With today's technology, the biggest thing that can make a difference in the success of your real estate transaction is the Realtor you choose. The company name no longer makes a difference - some are big - some are small - some only one person. In any large company, you will find wonderful honest and ethical people and you will find some well - not so wonderful. You don't work with the "company," the agent works with the company - make sure you find the best - Agent that is!
Be sure you know who you are working with - and if at all possible - support your local businesses - we do!
RECEIVE ALL NEW LISTINGS DAILY - SEE HOW!
Get new listings every day on a map just like this
Wish you could see ALL properties as soon as they are listed in the Multiple Listing Service?
ONLY TWO REQUIREMENTS:
1. You have to tell us what you are looking for (duh!)
2. You aren't committed to another Realtor (it's the steppin' on toes thing we don't want to do)
HERE'S THE HOW:
1. Send an email to Sam@agentmikel.com 2. Tell us your price range (make it pretty wide) 3. Tell us acceptable areas (entire Clark County OK) 4. Preferred size of house, property (lot or acreage) 5. Do you need a one-level home 6. Do you need to have the master bedroom on the main 7. Do you just want to look at Short Sales OR do you want to exclude Short Sales 8. AND anything else that you can think of.
This is the ONLY way we can send you every listing as soon as it is listed!!!
You will receive an e-mail daily - like the one above - if there's anything new in your price range or any changes or price reductions. The information is current and generally more accurate than the property information on the internet.
We don't Bite and we don't Bug. We have no annoying email campaign, and no interest in ticking you off. If you do have questions or would like to talk with someone, give us a call (360-921-0068) or email (email@example.com) and we'll try to help.
Need Short Sale Help - Ask Any Questions here:

We are here to help but you must take the first step
and she will hold your hand (if you want) while you get connected. You'll find friends who will golf with you, walk with you, hike with you, travel with you, hug you, talk to you, play cards with you, go to plays with you, have dinner with you (we eat often), be there through thick and thin, laugh with you when you laugh and cry with you when you cry - and all for just $20 a year!
First Time Buyers >The Seller May Pay
The costs of buying a home may be daunting. For example, you may have finally saved enough for a down payment on your first home, with a little left over to buy the furniture you will need. Then you hear about having to pay closing costs you weren't anticipating, and this may seem like a real setback.
One way to cover such a shortage is to make the sellers an offer that calls for them to credit you for some of the closing costs. As a rule, the sellers may pay a maximum of 3 percent of the sales price if the buyer is putting five percent down. If the buyer is making a down payment of 10 percent or more, the seller can contribute up to 6 percent of the sales price to cover the buyer's closing costs. Some items, such as prepaid taxes and the first month's mortgage payment, must be paid by the buyers. Sellers may also contribute to paying the appraisal, points, title insurance, settlement attorney fees, state or local transfer taxes and similar items.
Keep in mind that if the credit is included in the price of the house, the appraiser will have to justify the amount, based on sales prices of similar homes in the neighborhood.

The Mikels have won the coveted Columbian's Readers Choice Award twice - Scott in 2009 and Sam in 2010 (out of 1400 Realtors in Clark County). They are the "real" in real estate. They have been just that for over 50 years (between them) for thousands of buyers and sellers in Vancouver and SW Washington. Maybe you can tell what they're really like if you click on the tab "About Us" - "Who We Are." They'll treat you with gentleness, kindness and humor, all at the same time. See what their customers say about them. (No they weren't paid to say those things!)
After working many years in large companies, they started Scott Mikel & Associates, a LOCAL company, so they could choose which agents they do and don't associate with on a day-to-day basis, and where they could have the technology for "virtual" real estate as needed. Scott and Sam have created a company with equal amounts of honesty, reliability and fun. They will treat you as family (if you wish) and w/ integrity and expertise at all times. Realtors are NOT all the same - some great, some not so great. Choose carefully.
