I was referred to Mike from my dad; which alone speaks volume but I can surely say we were not disappointed. His personality was very warm and inviting which made communicating a breeze.

Highly recommend Mike Karlins! His team at Peak Realty are second to none. Our home was sold within days to the first buyer to view the house. We received full asking price. Mike kept us updated daily and arranged for everything! He really made the process of selling our home very easy. We met with Mike about a month before listing our home. His expertise in prepping a home for sale allowed for minimum requests from the buyer when making an offer. His professional photographer took amazing photos of the home, and the listing really stood out above the others in the area. Thanks Mike, we are very grateful!

I was a first time home buyer and worked with Micheal. He made the process very easy and worked with me every step of the way. He was very quick to respond and extremely proactive through the whole process. I was a special circumstance being that I only had a limited amount of time to view houses before I had to leave the area for a two month trip to Washington state. During that two months Micheal handled all the the closing details and home inspections for me and even went as far to check in on the home while I was away and set me up with a landscaper. I couldn’t have been more satisfied with the entire process and highly recommend his services to anyone looking to purchase a home in the area.

Mr. Karlins was super responsive and available at a moments notice. He was always one step ahead of the process and made us feel amazingly comfortable. We had not bought a house in a while so he walked us thru all the options and helped us in every way. I could not be more impressed by his knowledge and professionalism.

Mike Karlins of Peak Realty took the worry out of selling our home.As senior citizens downsizing and selling our home had us very concerned. We needed someone to take charge on our behalf and cover all the problems that might arise. Mike did this and more, he was our go to man on all questions keeping us informed at all times. Our home sold quickly with a minimum of fuss. Need the job done right? See Mike!

Michael in the consummate real estate professional. He is very knowledgeable and really is an incredible asset to have when you are buying or selling a home. He is warm, considerate and patient with his clients. He never let us down and surpassed all of our expectations. We have bought numerous homes and this by far was our best experience.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - atmartin1
Mike could not have been better. He had a clear understanding of the market value of the home I was selling, provided great recommendations on repairs to be made before showing the home, and even assisted in overseeing some of the repairs while I was out of town. After the contract was signed, Mike stayed on top of the buyer's progress with inspections and mortgage approval, and coordinated smoothly with the title company. Throughout the process, he communicated with me frequently and ensured I was fully aware of all aspects of the sale. We received an offer within 3 days and were under contract in less than a week. I highly recommend Mike to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Hampton Roads area.

Mike will give your property his full attention so that it will sell quickly. Be prepared to do what it takes on your part but he WILL do what it takes on his part by getting it out there or whatever it takes. And when its all over you will feel like you have made a friend.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Seth Wilder
Michael went so far above and beyond! Words can't express the gratitude for all of his hard work. Michael always kept the lines of communication open and was very intelligent, and honest about every question we had (and there were a lot!) He even helped us move! Good luck finding any other realtor do that! I am very grateful and thankful we chose Michael as our realtor. I highly recommend Michael Karlins to anyone who decides to rent, buy home, or sell their home!

My fiancé and I started looking for a home in the Spring of 2015. The home we purchased was one we had viewed and later returned to view once more. He told us one really important thing, "You two need to fall in love with the home". After thinking about that home we realized we did love it and made an offer. We closed last week and our new home is perfect for us. He even helped us move while waiting on our short sale. Throughout the entire process he guided us and was available at all times for questions and concerns. He didn't push us into any purchase, but gave his honest opinion on each home we visited. He consistently checked in with the other parties involved during the short sale, but stayed realistic on timelines for reaching a closing date. With his previous knowledge of home remodeling and flooring, he was able to help us see the potential in our new home and offered suggestions. Mike is incredibly knowledgeable and gave us much comfort during such a big decision. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor. He is not only our realtor for life, but our friend, as well.

Mike was a Godsend. Not only did he find my brother a home that was perfect for him, he helped my three brothers and two sisters and I through a difficult time by selling my parents home after my dad passed away. Mike was never pushy and was there every step of the way. He always answered his phone or called back immediately. He made the process easy for all six of us. We are grateful for him. Thanks Mike for all of your hard work.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - jamota5
Mike went above and beyond what I was expecting from a realtor. He found multiple properties for me to view within one week. His knowledge of the process was very helpful and he was able to answer any questions that I had as to possible modifications or repairs. He was always available and even showed up after I had closed on the home, the evening before Thanksgiving, to resolve a plumbing issue that I had. He worked well with the sellers realtor and contractors to stay on top of things, as well as arranged the tree removal and washer and dryer deliveries. I would highly recommend giving Mike a chance to work as hard for you as he did for me.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - william f schall
Michael Karlins was extremely helpful to us as our selling agent. We knew of him prior to selling our house and chose him because of his extensive knowledge of the local area and his attention for detail. His knowledge of the process proved invaluable during the entire process. Selling a house can be a stressful experience however, Mr. Karlins' knowledge and responsiveness limited that stress by making himself available and solving issues anytime he was asked. Mr. Karlins worked very hard for us and highly recommend him.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - jamierox24
Michael did a wonderful job answering all of my questions. He would respond immediately and was beyond helpful in finding the perfect home. He made the process of buying a home less stressful and I highly recommend using him as an agent.

I have known Mike for 20 plus years. He went above and beyond even met a contactor for me. I could not have asked for more. Great job, house sold. Thanks Mike.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - renee564
Mike did an excellent job promoting our home once we decided to sell it. He prepared a video to show that it was coming on the market soon and he used all the latest technology to advertise the home for sale. We had offers the first week and ultimately sold it for the price we wanted within 3 1/2 months from the time we first listed it. Mike is very professional and has a excellent background which he used to make suggestions to us for renovation and staging. We can't thank him enough.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - hmcmtrue
Was great and went above and beyond what a Realtor usually does. He helped me with contacts for some contractors to get some work completed due to the home inspection and even helped me find a missing ground wire. He stayed in contact with us on ever issue that came up and were able to get the deal closed.
I would highly recommend him to anyone in the future.

From day one, Michael Karlins was a phenomenal realtor. He is an extraordinary person who has surpassed all of my expectations during the selling process of my home. Michael always kept the lines of communication wide open and more importantly, honored every word he spoke! Michael always put my interest first and foremost in every issue that came up for resolve with the utmost care, concern, and respect. Michael is amazing at compromising and negotiating while always maintaining clarity in every interchange or conversation.

Michael always went out of his way to accommodate me during the entire journey of selling my home! Michael Karlins is a "Superb" realtor who has portrayed exemplary customer relations! I am very grateful and thankful I chose Michael as my realtor. Undoubtedly, I highly recommend Michael Karlins to anyone who decides to rent, buy a home, or sell their home!

Mike helped me buy a house in 2003. There were multiple offers on the house so Mike helped me negotiate a deal that was just over the asking price to get the house. Three years later I sold the house for more then $90,000 more then I paid for it. Mike also helped my girlfriend buy the house that we currently live in. He is great to work with and responds quickly to calls and texts. Looking for a home with Mike is like looking with a friend. All in all it was a funtastic experience.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - fstcctue5
Mike showed my girlfriend and I some houses when we were looking for a home to rent. He did mention that he normally works with buyers and seller, but was willing to help us out. He is great about answering the phone and /or calling back quickly and responding to texts. We ended up finding a place on our own, but when we are ready to buy a home next year we will definitely be calling Mike.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - William Roestenberg
I had the pleasure of working with Mike when my wife and I were in the market for a rental property. He ALWAYS answered his phone and give us honest and helpful information. He sent us information on homes we were truly interested in on a regular basis. If you are looking for a realtor that will provide you one on one personal attention, Mike's your man!!!! Or you can go with one of those "Big Agents" and get handed off to an associate like a piece of day old bread!!!!
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - hcboone
Mike helped me buy my first home and I could tell his goal was to be helpful from the start. I never felt like he was trying to rush me into buying—he patiently showed me houses until we found the perfect one. The house I bought was government owned and there were multiple offers on it. Mike helped me to negotiate a deal that was $5,000 less than the asking price and they took care of several repairs and also supplied new stainless steel appliances. Mike is very quick to answer and return calls and was great to work with.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - mroestenberg
I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Karlins, when my wife and I were in the market for a investment property. Mike was hands on at all times and was straight forward with the good, the bad, and the ugly when it came it came to the properties we were interested in. He ALWAYS answered his phone and responded back to our requests almost immediately if not while right there on the phone with him! If your looking for one of those flash in the pan realtors with $800 suits, pinkie rings and cheesy billboards that only tell you what you want to hear (if the golf course their playing on has a cell signal to respond to you!), then Mikes not the guy for you. If your looking for a professional realtor who makes you feel special and you seem like your his only client then Mike is for you. I highly endorse Michael Karlins

If you are looking for great agen to represent you, Mike is the one you should sign with. Mike was great in all the aspects of the home buying process. Not once did he pressure us to buy any particular home and was available for any and all questions. Closed the deal quick and got us a great price on our first home!
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - hairstylist536
Mike was AWESOME!! I’m sure most of you have gone through the buying process before and if you haven’t it can be very exhausting and tedious. Mike was very knowledgeable and helpful in answering any and all questions we had. What I liked most about him was that he didn’t pressure us when it came to a property also he was very patient because we did end up looking at several dozen places and of course the pictures online always look good but most of the time when you get there you don’t even want to get out of the car. Mike totally understood us and we will definitely be using him for future purchases. Thanks Mike for everything- Dana B.
