We would like to thank you for a remarkably quick sale of our house during a time when the market was at its lowest. We do appreciate your honesty and integrity when it came to showing our home and feel that your knowledge and insight was invaluable in terms of listing and pricing in the current market. Our home was priced to sell and it sold! Thank you!

RE: Real Estate Transaction Service
Just thought we would drop you a note regarding your professionalism in the recently completed sale of our recreational property. Despite all the challenges in dealing with multiple parties and varied expectations, you maintained a professional approach and brought the deal together.We were impressed by how you marketed our property on your listing with several photos (21) of the lot and the area. It was evident that you put a fair bit of time & effort to help sell our property. We had tried to do it on our own but in the end we needed someone that could pull it all together.Mike, we appreciate your patience and your upbeat enthusiasm throughout the entire process. Thank you for your expertise and ability to get the deal done!

Testimonial of Service
My wife and I hired Mike Sandstra as our Real Estate agent in September of 08’ to sell our house in the Foothills. With the market being soft we had some concern of how quickly are house would sell and the price we would get for it.
Mike prepared a CMA on our home that was realistic and presented an action plan to get it sold. In 95 days our house was sold in the price range Mike had predicted.
We found Mike’s service professional, prompt and efficient. Mike has an eye for the finer details and he’s aggressive in is marketing strategies.
We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mike’s service to our friends and family.

Testimonial of Service
I hired Mike again as my agent in July of 2010. I was looking for a commercial business for myself and asked Mike to help me find one. After viewing and researching several investment potential properties/businesses, Mike had researched a gas station business in Lake Country.
It took several months from making an offer to the completion/possession date to make this happen. We were very impressed by Mike’s negotiating skills, his professional manner and his attention to detail on a huge contract like this. Our lawyer was quite surprised how smoothly the whole transition took place.
We have trusted Mike with the sale of our house and now finding our business and he has proven to be a true professional all the way.
Thanks again for all your help Mike!

To whom it may concern.
Recently Mike Sandstra acted as our real-estate agent for the sale of our mother's home.
The sale was dealt with professionally, efficiently and in a very caring manor. Use of the internet, local media, open houses, and Mike's ability to work with both the client and prospective buyer, without a doubt contributed to the quick sale.
We found Mike dealt with all matters respectively, promptly, and in a very caring manor. He kept us updated as to thoughts of prospective buyers after each viewing.
Selling a home can be a very stressful experience. In dealing with Mike we found the stress was next to being eliminated, and highly recommend his services to anyone wishing to sell their home.

As a professional international negotiator I am not a big fan of testimonials on professional performance.It's not true that we always have to perform the best we can for our client in our professional field.This time I will overrule myself because of what Mike did was outstanding in his profession.
For me from the first phone call on,Mike was not only a REALTOR but also a social guide through the whole purchasing process.He made sure that besides the business side also my social needs were met.I was very impressed with his knowledge of the Okanagan Valley and Shuswap area.Not only the real estate market,but more important for me,all social and business aspects of the area.Mike invested the time to understand what my business and social goals and expectations to ensure himself that I was purchasing the right property in the right place.
He recommended and brought me in touch with the right professionals so I could move forward in developing my ideas and property.Buying the property became a pleasant and smooth process taking in consideration I live in Edmonton.
To whom it may concern:
“I have found Mike’s service to be professional, dependable, efficient and friendly. His attention to detail and willingness to work hard is evident from the first call to the last signature. Looking forward to doing more business with you Mike!”

Mike Sandstra was absolutely terrific to work with, His communication is clear and timely on all matters. He keeps in touch and reports on what is happening etc. He sold our home in less then 7 days. He keeps your best interests in mind and is willing to work very hard and do what is takes to help keep the deal together and sees it through to the end. He does not simply get your house listed and then wait for it to sell, He pounds the pavement and gets it sold for you. I would recommend you consider Mike for all your real-estate transactions.
Devco Homes Ltd.
Mike was a great agent to work with. We purchased our home from Mike’s listings. He was professional and informative and made the process very straight forward.
I was very satisfied with Mike. He was prompt in responding to all my requests and concerns as my husband and I went through the process of purchasing our new home . He was a good advocate for us in this transaction and I would use him again or recommend him to anyone that I knew was looking to buy or sell a property.
Thanks for everything Mike!
I would very much like to thank Mike Sandstra in being so efficient in the recent selling of my condo.I've found him to very much be on the top of his being a realtor and his understanding and guidance kept me in touch with anything going on in the areas.
He keeps his word and I highly refer him to anyone in the Vernon and area. Thank-you Mike!

To whom it may concern:
This short note will acknowledge the fine and consistent efforts by Michael Sandstra in the successful
completion of two sales for us. Mike’s efforts prompted a vigorous electronic marketing campaign which
culminated with two sales in the past seventeen months. Each sale was for a recreational property at Fintry
in the central Okanagan area of British Columbia.
Thank you, Mike, for your great effort!
