"I am extremely satisfied how everything went with my home buying process. Mike explained everything to me clearly and in a way I could understand."  Ryan Stallings, Denver

"Mike was great. He wasn’t pushy and had a very good understanding with what we wanted. It was clear his goal wasn’t just to sell a house and get the commission, but to find us a house that was nothing short of our forever home. His background in construction helped him point out so many structural  and building related things about the houses that we never would have noticed. He gave us the option to add several creative clauses to our offer that made it more appealing and helped us get our home. He was also very responsive and proactive with our closing experience to make sure everything for settlement went as smoothly as possible. I would recommend Mike to anyone!"

"Mike did such a great job helping us find a home that was perfect for us and getting us into the home.  He was very thorough and felt like family by the end of it all.  He was always available and responsive to our questions in a very timely manner & made everything go smoothly."
Lindsey & Don Keen, Wrightsville  

"I feel extremely grateful to have had Mike Stum as our agent. As first time home-buyers, we weren't sure what to expect but Mike walked us through every step of the process. What sets Mike apart from otheragents is his construction background. I knew we had won the agent lottery when at the  first house Mike showed us, he pulled out a flashlight in the basement to check for water and termite issues, pulled out a ground tester to see if an outlet was grounded, opened the circuit breaker to check if we had room to add more circuits, showed us how to tell if the radon system was functional (it wasn't), and explained to us about the construction of the deck. If you want an agent who won't just show you a home but who can help you understand if the home is well constructed before you even get to the home inspection, Mike is the agent for you. He caught things,   even our home inspector had missed.
Mike is a no pressure agent. He explained to me his job is just to show us the house, our job is to determine if the house is right for our family. He won't try to push you into something, because he genuinely wants his clients to love their new home.

Mike is exceptionally prompt at returning phone calls and staying on top of the other agent if you don't receive a timely response. He helped us to negotiate additional money for repairs after the seller had initially refused. We had questions about our property line and Mike made multiple calls to the title company to try to get us the needed information. He even pulled past deeds in search of what we needed to know. Mike is an agent who will go far above and beyond to ensure his clients have all the information they need to make an informed purchase.

I truly can't recommend Mike highly enough! I wouldn't have wanted to go through this process without his expertise and exceptional level of ethics and character. He is a quality agent and I'm hard pressed to find even one complaint. This is the agent you want on your side when buying a home."        

Roni Jevens, Landisville

"This was my first time purchasing a home so naturally I was nervous.  But Mike was committed to making the process smooth and headache free.  He worked hard, even during off hours to make my home buying experience wonderful!  Thank you for everything Mike."
Kiley Anderson, Mountville

"Mike was a pleasure to work with.  Very prompt with everything involving our transaction and would refer Real Choice to anyone in search of real estate."
Aaron Fry, Conestoga

"I cannot say how much I appreciate Mike Stum.  He went above and beyond for me.  I felt many times that I was wasting his time, though he came through thick & thin."

us and always kept us in the loop being a good advocate for us.  Thanks to him we are now in our
larger beautiful home for many years to come!"
Yidrisca & Rafael Mirabal, Elizabethtown

 "We can't express enough about Mike.  He was genuine, knowledgeable, caring, excellent listener and a great negotiator.  Mike made sure we were completely prepared from start to finish.  At no time did we feel rushed or pushed into a sale. We felt as if we were his only client and that simply wasn't true.  In the end, we were down to two homes, & he offered the pros and cons so that we could make the best decision.  We will never forget how hard he worked to find our perfect home & all the little things he did, they truly
meant a lot.  Thank you Mike."

Deb In & Tony In, Lititz

"Mike was so great to work with.  From the beginning, he never put any pressure on us and he always took time to answer our questions, no matter how silly they were.  I loved that he took a flashlight and tried to find things wrong with a house.   We weren't suprised at the home inspection because he was so thorough.  Through the whole process, we were well informed and respected.  In 10 years time, when we plan to upgrade, we will call Mike again.  He works hard and is honest.  You would be hard pressed to find a better realtor in the area."
Juliana McKenny & Kenneth Daily, Lancaster

"We could not be happier with Mike at Real Choice.  He took the time to explain everything thoroughly and was always available to answer questions, etc.  I feel like he was really looking out for us through the entire transaction.  He was professional, punctual and helpful. I would recommend Real Choice without hesitation and will use them again if and when the need arises."

I found him to be knowledgeable about all aspects of realty that surpassed just the legalities of buying and selling properties. I absolutely recommend Real Choice Real Estate and Mike Stum to anybody looking to buy or sell a home."

Mandy Weber, Elizabethtown

"It was a real pleasurable experience working with you Mike.  Tina & I have had a lot of adventures in our 18 years together, not all good, so it's easy to lose your trust in people and in the business world where it's every person for themselves.  You have restored our faith that there are still people who are kind and willing to help others.  Thank you so much for your patience and knowledge, you sure know what you're looking at when you see it.  We are very much pleased with our purchase and will probably be here forever, and since we now live close to you,  you're welcome anytime.  So for first time homebuyers, you took very good care of us, and we can't thank you enough."
Tina Shank & Tyler McLaughlin, Pequea

Leah Lloyd, Columbia

"As a first time home buyer, Mike took that extra time to explain the process of buying a home and helped me out tremendously."
Amber Michener, Marietta

"As first time homebuyers we had a bad experience with a realtor before being referred to Mike.  He turned our outlook around on the home buying process instantly.  His dedication, trustworthiness, determination, along with always being on top of things will cause us to use Mike for all our real estate transactions."
Jana Esh & Christopher Holcum, Leola

" The simple way of describing our experience with Mike Stum is to say that he went well above and beyond" to help us find and settle into our new house, in every way.  The type of purchase, and also the type of mortgage we were using, required a lot of extra work in order to get to the settlement table in time - Mike was always available to make the process as smooth as possible.

    From the first walk-through, the fact that Mike was able to find and communicate potential problems with the house and its mechanicals helped us feel comfortable with the home-buying process.

    Throughout the mortgage approval and seller's agreement process, Mike made several trips from Lancaster City to Elizabethtown, sometimes three or more times a week, to let contractors who would be involved with the project into the house; made calls to townships and appraisers clearing up problems with permits and other issues; and was available to answer questions at all hours of the day and night.

We will continue to use Mike Stum and Real Choice Real Estate for future real estate transactions, and talk about him with everyone we meet who is in the real estate market."
Stephanie Smay and Justin Smay, Mount Joy

Yidrisca Vargas - Miabal & Rafael Mirabal, Lancaster

"As first time homebuyers, we immediately felt at ease with Mike.  His background in construction and real estate experience gave us the upper hand.  He would point out abnormalities and potential problems in houses during walk-throughs -- things that we wouldn't have noticed ourselves.  This made it clear that he had our best interest at heart and wasn't just trying to sell us just any house.  When we did find our dream home, he walked us through the buying process each step of the way.  Mike and his assistant Kelly were always quick to answer any questions or concerns we had throughout the entire process.  Whether this is your first or tenth home, we highly recommend Mike.  We would definitely work with Mike again if we ever decide to sell!"

They were consistently helpful from start to finish, and made the difficult task of
buying a home a truly enjoyable experience."
Tracy & John Longmire, Lancaster

"You guys were so helpful and knowledgeable in helping us buy our first home.  Every call and question was answered quickly and accurately."
Julie Keith & Christopher Cruz, Lancaster

"I was extremely pleased with how hard Real Choice worked with/for me to make sure everything was smooth and to get me into the right home."
Sean Black, Lancaster

"Mike and Kelly did a fantastic job helping us buy our first home!  As first time homebuyers we had little to no knowledge on what we were getting ourselves into.  Mike was able to show us the positives and negatives of each home we looked at and never tried to force us into his opinion of the property. He is not just knowledgeable as a Real Estate Agent, but he holds a wealth of knowledge about construction of homes.  Kelly kept us well informed of what needed to happen and when.  We are looking forward to working with Mike and Kelly again when we move onto our second home!"

"I was very intimidated about buying a home for the first time.  Mike Stum helped to make the experience seem incredibly simple and actually fun!  Without being intrusive, Mike assisted me in determining a payment amount that would fit my budget and would not strap me financially.  He was patient and understanding as I changed my mind constantly about what I did and did not want in a home.  Mike was receptive to questions and helped educate me throughout the entire seven-month process, making sure I understood and felt satisfied with each decision I made.  He really has a sincere interest in serving his clients.  It's been a month since we've moved into our new home and the whole family feels we really made the right decision, a lot of which is to our realtor's credit.  We would recommend Mike to anyone who wants to buy or sell his/her home.  He is first rate!"
