We were fortunate enough to meet Mike through a mutual friend, right as we had begun our search for the right house in Austin. From our initial phone conversations until closing, Mike made buying a home easy. He was always prepared and provided us a wealth of background knowledge, that gave us the guidance we needed to efficiently navigate the challenges of buying a home. Mike listened to everything we had to say, which kept us from wasting time that we didn’t have. And, most importantly, Mike’s friendly nature just made it all so comfortable.
When it comes time to sell or buy another house, Mike will be the first call we make!

Being first-time home buyers and new to the Austin area, we really weren’t sure what we were looking for, let alone where. Mike immediately put us at ease and did a great job of explaining our options of resale and new construction homes and was very patient as we literally looked all over the Austin area and changed our minds whether we were or weren’t interested in new construction homes. Mike was able to ask all the right questions and listen to us in order to help us figure out what exactly we were looking for. It is these qualities that has led me to recommend him to several friends in their search for a new home in Austin.

I have known Mikey for quite some time and have always been impressed with his professionalism and genuine concern for others. Not surprisingly, I used his services to help me find my first home. He went through the whole process in detail so I would know what to expect. He was patient and very knowledgeable. We were able to find a condo that was perfect for me. Thanks Mikey!

Mike Takao has helped me on several properties now. I’ve recently started “flipping” houses. The idea is new to me and I did not know where to start. Mike has gone beyond and above what a typical Realtor agent will do. He created a formula on finding houses that would make sense to flip (location, cost, resale, cost of fixing, potential profit, etc.). Since then, we have successfully flipped 2 houses in 7 months and are continuing to look for more opportunities.
I’m also in the process of building 4 condos near downtown Austin and Mike helped me find the 2 lots for this project. Once again, he has gone above and beyond his duties by helping me plan the initial requirements of building condos. He even helped me find a builder for my project. I will definitely plan on using him when I’m ready to sell the condos.
I have recommended Mike to many of my friends and will continue to do so. He is a caring and trustworthy realtor. He is my realtor for life. Thanks Mike for all your help and support. Could not have done it without you!

I have known Mike for 13 years and find him to be honest, knowledgeable, and such a joy to work with! He recently listed our home in Round Rock, and was quite helpful in giving us tips to ready our house for the market. Our house sold in 3 days with multiple offers! I highly recommend Mike for all of your real estate needs.
