Even in this extremely competitive housing market, Mike was able to help us find a home that we love. Mike went above and beyond to make sure we had as much information as possible and was a true trusted advisor for us during our first home buying experience. He is honest, professional, and experienced. Mike's connections in the industry (attorney, lender, etc.) were exceptional and we are so grateful for his guidance during this entire process.

Mike is "The Dude" of real estate. Helped with all the details. We were relocating and we could not have done it without him. We needed contacts for lawyers, inspectors,experts .. he got it done. He is a professional. Thanks Mike!

After the loss of my dad, Mike was so helpful and available for questions and concerns we had selling his property. His knowledge of the local industry is amazing and insight into some of the situations we encountered was very useful. We will definitely use him again, thanks Mike!

Mike was amazing. He explained how to quickly get the house presentable, he consulted on efficient expenses that could be made and he was very nice to work with. I would never dream of using anybody else.

I cannot say enough how great Mike is. My husband and I had a great experience with Mike in our home purchasing process. He was always available, kind, responsive, and very knowledgeable on the housing market -- everything you want in a broker. Not being familiar with Chicago's western suburbs, we had many questions, and Mike was able to help us with all and provide guidance. Not only Mike helped us to buy our dream home at a perfect price, but he also introduced us to great inspectors and a construction company for our home renovations. He made the entire purchasing process smooth and enjoyable for us. We totally recommend working with him!

Mike was exceptionally helpful and easy to work with as I searched for and found a home in Aurora that meets my family's particular needs. Given the challenging market conditions during these pandemic times, his amazing support, patience, and know-how were nothing less than an Atlas feat!

In 2012 our family was given the opportunity to move to the Chicagoland area through an employer. A colleague had worked with Mike for the purchase of their home in Naperville, and highly recommended him. We flew out and for three days Mike showed us home after home in several cities near company headquarters. He was well-versed in each village - talking us through the benefits of each, noting what features might work for our young family. Not finding the right fit, Mike switched gears to help us find temporary rental and negotiated a fair rent for a short-term contract. Not once did we feel pressure for making a decision on a home just to close the deal. Mike was clear - he wanted us to find our home. Fast forward - the short term rental contract lasted almost nine years - and in March 2021 we found ourselves ready to find a home. Despite being in the midst of a sellers market, and with specific needs for our family (location, price, room number), Mike helped us navigate the market landscape. He refreshed our understanding of the process, gently walking us through the complex process of home buying, answering basic questions via text and calls. He also introduced us to fantastic partners for inspection, mortgage brokering, and legal representation, who also made the process smooth. In the end, we found a home that hit all of our needs, and he was able to negotiate with the home owners for a sales price within our budget. All the while, we felt like we had a friend who had our best interest at heart. Absolutely recommend Mike.

Mike was excellent, start to finish. I have never sold a home before and he stepped me through the whole process. He nailed the asking price and the eventual selling price and even helped to find the perfect time of year to put the house on the market. I could not have asked for a better experience.
A. Locascio
We were referred to Mike by family, and we had an amazing experience! As first time home buyers, we were clueless about everything, but Mike was thorough and patient with us- no question was a dumb question. He took us to every single house we wanted to see. He offered honest opinions and advice- something we really appreciated. He is very personable and funny. In this crazy market, it’s easy to get discouraged, but working with Mike was the saving grace for us! With his guidance, expertise, and many years of experience, we put our full trust in him, and we are so happy that we did. We landed a gorgeous turn-key home in a prime location. Highly recommend him to anyone!

We were referred to Mike and are so glad we were. As we ended up in an area of town outside of his original expertise, he took the time to council his peers and research our questions and came back to us with everything we needed and more. I have learned that responsiveness is something that should be held in such a high regard, particularly these days, and Mike doesn't miss a beat. From beginning to end of our home search and buying process, we are still in contact with Mike on home project questions and other referrals. He is incredibly knowledgeable and his patience, attentiveness, and attention to detail greatly stands out. He will help you through your process every step of the way and beyond. Couldn't refer Mike highly enough!
K. Kiefner
Mike was so wonderful to work with! He helped my husband and I find our home in the neighborhood of our choice. He was very patient and attentive and always made himself available to us. Once we decided on a house he did a  great job negotiating a price we were very happy with. I would highly recommend Him!
C. Hill
Mike was referred to us and now we are the ones referring him; that says something. As first time home buyers and being new to the Naperville market, it was invaluable having someone know every neighborhood in such a big city very well and not spending time on places that would be out of the question based on our wants and needs. 
To that point, the house we ended up in was better than we could have ever imagined and it wasn’t one that we would have noticed; Mike found it FOR US.
Mike is thoughtful and prepared, kind but firm in his advice. Great guy and great realtor.
R. Gruber Jr
Mike was such a pleasure to work with! He was so patient with us through the whole home buying process, he provided us with valuable information and his expertise all along the way. He was always available to answer any questions or provide reassurance. I would absolutely recommend Mike to anyone looking for an amazing realtor!
A. Hoover
We have used Mike Long as our realtor for years. He has helped us buy our starter house and our forever home. He is so knowledgeable and knows the area  very well. Plus he is fun, which makes those long frustrating days looking for just the right house a little bit better! I highly recommend Mike Long!
K. Shiffer
If I could give Mike Long 6 stars, I would! He made the entire process of looking for and buying a home, from start to move in day, incredibly easy, enjoyable and efficient. As a single, first time home buyer, I had more questions than I care to admit to, and Mike was supremely patient and helpful with each of my inquiries. He truly works nonstop, always looking out for what is best for his clients. Mike is professional, comforting, fantastically knowledgeable and a true joy to work with.

Mike emodies the principle of "making it happen". My wife and I needed to sell our house quickly in order to relocate for a new job. Given it was the middle of winter, the odds were against us in both time and maximizing sale value. Once we made the decision to list, Mike was able to set us with stagers, repairmen, carpeters, and put us on the market inside of two-weeks. The first weekend on the market, we had over 25 families come through our open house. Within three days we had an offer. Unfortunately that offer fell through due to indecision on the buyers part. When that happened, Mike spent the day calling his contacts, reaching out to others that expressed mild interest and otherwise might be a potential buyer. Within 24 hours, Mike hand delivered an asking price offer - in the middle of January! If you want to get your house sold, Mike is the guy.
A. Tinajero
We recently moved in to our first home through Mike Long, Mike was so helpful in explaining what we needed to do and putting us in touch with the right people. We can confidently recommend Mike Long, who is extremely polite, professional, sympathetic and just brilliant in everything.
K. Anshika
Mike handled our out of state, tight timeline move with great efficiency, professionalism and humor! Our house hunting with Mike was so enjoyable and extremely productive. Mike was able to answer all questions and worked around the clock for us while we searched for a home during a one week trip to Illinois. Mike’s years of real estate experience were evident in his ability to navigate us through the Illinois buying process and even hook us up with an outstanding attorney. This was our 3rd time working with Mike, we have bought and sold and have always been extremely satisfied. Mike takes what can be a stressful time and uses his experience and good humor to turn it into an outstanding experience.
S. Skarda
Our family was in the process of relocating to Chicago and Mike definitely contributed for a smoother transition. He provided helpful insights on areas that would meet our expectations as well as timely responses to emails and any additional requests we had. He was also able to work with our schedules and visit several houses until we found the perfect one. We definitely recommend Mike and will definitely use him again if we ever decide to purchase a new home in the Greater Chicago region.
J. Luck
Mike was great! He was always on time, well prepared, and conscience of our needs. He worked hard to sell our home. We initially chose Mike over the other 3 realtors we interviewed, not because he gave us the highest listing price, but because he was honest, straight forward and had knowledge and data to back up his numbers. Throughout the listing, showings, negotiations, and sale of our home he stayed true to these qualities that made us choose him in the first place. It was a pleasure to work with Mike.
M. Frank
As first time home buyers, my wife and I could not have been more pleased with the way Mike worked with us and made himself available for questions and concerns 24/7 throughout the home buying process. He was professional, insightful, and knowledgeable concerning the local market. Mike has now helped a number of our family members to buy a home and will continue to be the first person we reach out to should we ever need a realtor again.
Early on in our experience with Mike we saw very clearly that he was going to give us his full attention and respect despite making a relatively smaller home purchase. He truly works to be of the highest character and attentiveness for his clients and will be the realtor that you return to should the need arise again.
It would be a mistake to not consider Mike Long as your realtor.
K. Dodge
Mike Long has helped me sell two homes and purchase three. He exemplifies all of the characteristics I look for in a business partner - honest, knowledgeable, great follow up, and completely transparent through it all. I highly recommend Mike as an agent.
M. Shiffer
We would highly recommend Mike Long to anyone in need of a real estate professional. Throughout the home buying process we were not only able to rely on his knowledge and experience, but also his willingness to assist us with inspections, contractors, and the many questions that would arise.
J. Bollingbrook
Mike was excellent. He is very knowledgable, friendly and made our first home purchase go smoothly.
Mike is NOT one of those realtors who's only there until the ink dries on the sale contract.  He has been so very helpful in making us feel at home - through contacts and referrals, recommendations, and even checking in with us to see how we are settling into our new home. I would highly recommend Mike to anyone who's looking for a top notch realtor!
