Endorsements for Scott and Sam Mikel, Scott Mikel & Associates Realtors

1. Once we received the referral from your fellow realtor in Portland (we got her name from Angie?s List), we felt we were in good hands. 2. I know you had a daunting task of showing me a lot of homes in a short period of time ? I think you said ?Vancouverized..? 3. Your local knowledge of the area and obviously the market was impressive. 4. Trying to digest our needs, and my wife?s needs long distance was very perceptive of you to show us potential homes. 5. I also like the fact your business contacts eased the purchase of the house go smoothly despite our wrinkles in trying to sell our home in New Mexico. 6. You were always upfront, honest, and you gave your opinion which I needed to gain more knowledge of the area. Thanks again for your great service, Doug/Debby

Buying a home is an experience that should be memorable and joyous, but it?s often tedious and stressful. But with Scott Mikel and Associates, the process is much easier. We enjoyed the very personal, professional, and quality experience we had working our agent, Sam. She was very diligent and resourceful, constantly and consistently updating us with homes to choose from, view, and eventually buy! Her and the rest of the staff went out of their way to make our home purchase a pleasant experience and a success. What?s more is that we have a lifetime friend out of the deal. Thanks, Sam!

Working with Scott Mikel & Assoc. on the recent sale of our condo was a no-brainer! Sam Mikel has been our broker on buying & selling 3 different properties in Clark County during the past 20 years, and we have trusted her expertise & knowledge of the market on each of those transactions. Sam is not only knowledgeable, but she was attuned to our needs & desires; her wise counsel was always appreciated. I would say the word "confidence" sums it all up; we were in good hands. Don and Roxanne

It was a joy to work with Sam as we looked for our first home in a new part of the country. She was able to help us steer clear of pitfalls that first-time buyers might easily fall into. She "knew her stuff" and was also very personable. We were able to relax and actually enjoy the house-hunt and ended up finding the ideal place for our young family to settle down. Thank you, Sam, for your hard work and good humor that kept us going! - David and Susan Eyk

I recommend Sam Mikel for any Real Estate transaction you are contemplating. Sam Mikel has proven to me and others I know to be the most competent, honest, hard working and responsive realtor that I have had the pleasure of working with. Sam stepped into my difficult situation where I lived out-of-state and was responsible for this listing and sale of my deceased brother?s house. Sam was considerate of the situation and represented me in an outstanding manner. Sam surveyed the house, made great recommendations and developed a listing strategy. She was able to quickly find a qualified buyer and the house closed in record time. I couldn?t have been more pleased. Scott K

I cannot say enough good things about Scott Mikel's work. This is the person you want to have on your side if you have a difficult or unusual building project. I had a vision of putting in an entertainment center but did not want the large TV to dominate my living space. I had an idea to hide it in a half wall and use a TV lift so it would only be visible when being used. Scott helped me with the design of the project, helped me shop for the lift device and offered many ideas and improvements on my original plan. All were great. He then went to work building the in-wall lift system and a surrounding built in bookshelf. Final results look and work great. It fits with the look of the house and completely hides the TV and components when not being used. Through it all, Scott was a pleasure to work with. Phil and Becky O'Donnell

We are extremely proud to have you as friends. Again, congratulations. Mel & Evelyn

From Recent Referral from Portland agent: "We want to thank you for introducing Sam Mikel to us. She has been terrific! One really learns how great a realtor is when there are problems and Sam truly came through for us. Since the previous owners still have furniture to be removed she will be following up for us to be sure all is well. We have worked with a lot of realtors with all of our moves so our praise is not made without experience or lightly." Keith and Jane

From a Portland agent: Jane, I'm thrilled to hear that Sam represented you so well! I knew she would though--I think you're the third WA clients I have referred to her and she consistently gets rave reviews, which reflected light shines well on me too ;-) I didn't realize her husband was a contractor and I'm glad that that has worked out so well also. . . Best, Colleen

From a repeat customer: Oh my goodness Sam... Thank you. Your influence has been so important in our home buying purchase and i'm soooooo grateful for it :) You know how people can get about being questionable about this purchase or that - you kinda drive yourself crazy! But you have been a humble, calm, quiet and assured strength about which way we should lean. THANK YOU. You have been a ministry of the Lord for us. So, given this entire process...who actually hands us our keys? I sure hope it's you! That's what I would want the photo to depict.

Sam, Scott and Laura, Jan and I want to thank you for all the help you provided us as we searched for a new house to accommodate new needs. I think we first met about 3 years ago when you happened to be the real estate agent showing a house on 142nd Street in Ashley Heights. We were impressed. You showed us the house, answered our questions and gave us time to wander around the property as we tried to determine if it would fill our needs. It didn?t but we kept your card because of your politeness and helpfulness. A few months later I called you about a couple of other houses. Laura came out and showed me those houses, answered questions and listened to our needs. When we decided that we would explore the option of having a place built in Ashley Ridge, Laura accompanied us when we talked with the builder's sales people. She offered advice and made sure that the sales people fully disclosed information with respect to our legal rights and how the process would work. Both you and Laura accompanied us to the design center and helped us with our selections of the various options for the house. Without the two of you we might have overlooked some very important options such as the soaking tub or other things that made for a more comfortable home. You were very much appreciated. Because of the service you provided we elected to have you list the home we needed to sell. Again, you were very helpful, walking us through the process, helping us find the right people to fix things that would enhance the sale and working with us as we went through the lending, inspections and title insurance processes. It was smooth sailing. No glitches! Thanks. Not only did you provide good information and guidance, you were there for all our question and provided good suggestions. We really enjoyed working with you and getting to know you. We look forward to a continued relationship, both professionally and friendship. With warm regards, Oren & Jan May 2016

We worked with Sam Mikel and her team when moving to the Northwest, we were not acquainted with any Realtors and cold-called Sam from a listing that we saw. From the start Sam was helpful and professional in her approach. We were on a mission with a tight timeline and she did everything we could ask for in helping us to search for our new home. Her response to questions was timely and came from her years of experience from working in real estate and specifically in the Vancouver market. Although our first favorites list seemed to be everyone else?s also and we were unsuccessful in finding a home right away, Sam was patient and continued to help with the search to find our new place. We were able to find a place we love and recommend her to friends who are looking to move to the area or for a new home. ? Scott and family.

From an Inspector: "We have known and worked with the Mikels for many years, providing professional inspection services for their clients. Scott, Sam and their office staff are really special folks. They demonstrate a true dedication to the welfare of their clients, without regard for themselves. A more honest, diligent group of people, you will not find, all the while keeping the daily routine humorous and enjoyable". Kevin Ratliff, Pillar to Post

As you know, when you were helping us out in buying our beautiful home here in Washington, we were working with another realtor in Connecticut to sell our house there. The experience Zahra and I had with the other realtor was that we had to remind her what to do and sometimes days would go by and we couldn't get a hold of her. In contrast, you went above and beyond what we expected, sending online listings of all the houses that were available in our price range and later showing us every house we wanted to see. During the negotiation process and afterwards you were a staunch advocate for us and you followed up on every detail (many of which we weren't even aware of!). With you as our agent, we were confident that you were diligently representing us even when we were thousands of miles away, and every piece of advice you gave us came from your years of experience and market wisdom. Now that we are living happily in our new home, we are always reminded that we not only gained a beautiful house, but a kind friend. Dr. Mohi

Well, it has been quiet because you have been on our minds and in our conversation, but not in our email!!! Well, last night I began a drawing of you, Sam, from the photo I took of you in our new house. Remember? And it has a caption under it: "Sam--The Real in Realtor. I might add that I always felt that you were more concerned for us than you were for the sale. You put the lie to all those nasty Realtor jokes. We enjoyed the referrals you gave us, too. One hears a lot about "boundaries." Well, somebody left the gate open between "friend" and "agent." I cannot imagine the amount of stress you saved us--and perhaps gave yourself. Love to you!
