Michael Cossette's Recommendations
Knowledgeable and Trustworthy
As a first time home buyer, I had no clue what I was doing. Michael was there to walk me through the process and explain everything thoroughly. He found us the perfect house that fit our every need and was even under budget. I found him knowledgeable, trustworthy and assuring.
Found us a great S. Austin Home
I highly recommend Mike and the Cossette Remax Gateway team. Mike was able to find me a great property in south Austin and was a great asset in the negotiation process. He is very knowledgeable on the entire central TX market.
He went to Bat for us!!
Mike was paramount in helping us sell one home and buy another home. He went to bat for us when we ran into issues and was available 24/7 for any questions or concerns. Our listing was awesome and they really have a great photographer. I highly recommend Mike Cossette when you are making the leap to buy and/or sell!
Exceeded our expectations
When my wife and I met with Mike to discuss our home buying adventure we had a small checklist of wants and not much else. Mike took the time to ask clarifying details of not only our wants but want we didn’t want. After leaving our initial meeting our confidence level and excitement erased all of our anxiety. By the time we drove home we already had a list of homes that matched our criteria and began researching different areas of Austin to help narrow the search. Day two we set out to look at 5 houses that were well within our budget and exceeded our expectations; I was very worried that we would have to compromise on something. After the first day of looking we decided our home would be on a cul-de-sac and only have neighbors on 2 sides; Mike never missed a beat and was as confident as our first meeting. He continued to send us listings and we set out for day 2; the second home we looked at hit all our criteria and was well within our budget. Mike had a detailed report for each home that had info on houses that were similar, info about the surrounding area and school info. With the housing market being hot (2012) we placed an offer that day and heard back pretty quickly. After some back and forth negotiation we owned our first home. Mike helped facilitate our financing and remained engaged throughout the process. We are getting ready to celebrate 2 years in our dream home and we remain very happy with our choice. I have recommended the Cossette’s to friends, family, coworkers and strangers if I overhear they are looking for a home.
Nobody I trust more
I haven't bought a house from him yet. However, he helped me find a new home to rent and took the time to show me homes even when it wasn't his main line of business. He continues to send me follow up emails that help me to better understand the housing market in Austin so that I'm prepared when the time comes to buy a home - which will be soon! In addition, real estate runs in his family, so there is more than one generation backing their knowledge on the Austin market. There is no one else i'd trust more than Mike!
Thrilled with the experience
We used Mike Cossette to find and purchase our home and we could not be more thrilled with the experience. He was recommended by friends of ours who had used him and were equally as pleased. Mike was great at suggesting homes and narrowing down our preferences, but where he really shines is after we had found our dream house. This is the part of the process where an expert is really necessary. Mike was a shark during the negotiations; a necessity in this aggressive and fast paced market. He was always available to answer any questions or concerns that we had and always made sure that we were confident and comfortable before any decisions were made. Thanks to his quick action and knowledge, our closing went smoothly and we are so grateful to be living in our home.
Found the best solution
Mike was very professional, in dealing with issue that arouse in the sale of our home. He worked with the buyers to come to a reasonable solution for all and save the home sale through reasoning and compromising in the right areas. Mike ensured we received the most money from this deal, which could have cost more or fell apart. I truly am thankful that Mike was our Realtor.
Honest and Responsive
Working with Mike was the best experience I could've asked for, in working with a real estate agent. Mike was honest and straightforward with me knowing what would work the best for my situation always came first! His communication skills really helped me to understand every detail no matter how complicated the situation. He was always very responsive, and treated me like I was his most important client, I would highly recommend him! !!
Add’s a level of personal investment
Mike both is exceptionally professional, and add's a level of personal investment with each of his clients that I haven't received anywhere else in Austin. He has a stark reputation as a knowledgeable real estate expert and I'd recommend him strongly for any of my personal or professional colleagues looking to buy in the Austin area. In an notably competitive area of the city, he was a huge help in finding the perfect balance of personal preference and wise investment for me.
I just bought my first house, and I couldn't possibly be happier with the buying experience that Mike provided. He explained everything I needed to know in detail, and made the entire process perfectly painless. Not only did he find me the exact house that I wanted, he also got me a great deal on it! Mike has a great team of lenders, inspectors, and contractors that he holds to a high standard. He is also very responsive - in the few instances that he wasn't able to answer the phone immediately, he got back to me in a matter of minutes. I would absolutely recommend Mike to anyone looking to buy or sell a house!
Found us the best of both worlds
Mike is an awesome Realtor. My wife and I had mixed choices for a home, she wanted more of a city home with not much to no work needed, I wanted land with a fixer to do what we wanted with. My wife and I made Mike work hard to find a compromising home we both could agree on and he did. Mike is knowledgeably in regards to county, city, lenders, etc.
Experience and Great Situational Advice
Mike was amazing during my home buying process. He gave me advice specific to my situation, and what type of home I should be looking for. After taking his advice, we were quickly able to locate a home, get it FULLY inspected (and estimates for work), and close a home not even one month in to the process. Without Mike's experience, knowledge, and contacts, there is no way I would have been able to close on a house that quickly and comfortably.
Mike went above and beyond
Highly, highly recommend this realtor! Moved halfway across the country and had so many obstacles, but he was there to help with everything and ensured it all went smoothly. He goes above and beyond and really cares about his clients. If you're looking for someone in the Austin area, look no further.
Helped us every step of the way
My girlfriend (now wife) and I at the time wanted to buy a house and were overwhelmed at the process. Escrow, closing costs, all that stuff was foreign to us. Mike was our Realtor and guided us through all the steps necessary to purchase a house. We gave Mike a list of criteria in what we wanted in a home and Mike found us the perfect place. Mike was also easily accessible, answered calls and texts quickly. After looking at a few houses, we put an offer in the house we thought was perfect and after a few weeks, we had the keys to our first house! I would definitely recommend Mike and his team to anyone wanting to buy a house and having questions or concerns. He was there every step of the way and always a phone call away.
Extensive Knowledge of Austin
Mike has extensive knowledge in managing real estate sales transactions , from DT Condos , Funky South Lamar Bungalows to Texas Hill Country acreage !
I am a Realtor in Reno, NV and was asked by my clients to find and interview several agents in the Austin area to list their 1.4 million dollar home. Being a Realtor myself in know that not all agents have the background and marketing experience to successfully list and sell a luxury property. After talking with Steve and Mike I had full confidence I had found the right agent for the job. They did an amazing job marketing the home for sale and sold it in about a week for over the asking price. My clients were thrilled how easily the sale went and with the results their efforts provided. If I am ever able to send more people their way I definitely will.
Incredibly Professional and Attentive
Mike Cossette was extremely helpful in helping my girlfriend and I purchase our first home. Though the Austin market is a bit demanding and we went through offers on many homes, Mike Cossette was there the whole way to support us. Once our offer on our house was accepted, Mr. Cossette and his team was incredibly professional and attentive to our every need. From suggesting qualified, professional third parties to work with, to negotiating on price, repairs, and appraisals, everything went extremely smoothly, all the way to closing. Communication was prompt and attentive. Organization was impeccable. We were able to review, accept, and sign documents online via DocuSign, as well as kept a secure online share drive for maintaining all the information related to the home purchase. It was fantastic! All-in-all, I would definitely recommend doing business with the Cossette Team at Re/Max!
Put us at ease from start to finish
My fiancé and I bought our first house in 2014 and Mike Cossette was fantastic to work with! Throughout the whirlwind 30-day process, Mike put us at ease and answered all of our questions (and we asked a lot of them). From start to finish, we couldn't have asked for a better realtor. Our new home is exactly what we wanted and we're so happy that we picked the Cossette team to represent us!
Awesome experience with Mike!!! He helped us find the perfect home in Austin then 2 years later he sold it for above list price in 3 days!! Highly recommend to anyone looking for a new home, or wanting to sell!
Knowledgeable in a Tough Market
Mike was helpful and knowledgeable about the area and process in the tough Austin market. He was available whenever we needed him, and he responded quickly to calls, emails, and texts.
Great navigator in a demanding market
Mike Cossette was extremely helpful in helping my fiancé and I purchase our first home. Though the Austin market is a bit demanding and we went through several offers on many homes, Mike Cossette was there the whole way to support us. I'd definitely do business again!
Exceptional Real Estate Professional
I've worked with Mike on many transactions over the years and he is an exceptional Real Estate Professional. Very knowledgeable, responsive, hard working, and always looking out for his clients best interests. Whether it is buyer or selling your home Mike is a great asset for your Real Estate transaction.
Beauty and the Beast
"Working with Mike was like "The Beauty and the Beast" The entire home buying process was seamless. Every time we had a question or needed and expert, Mike delivered. It was beautiful. When it came time to close the deal, Mike was a beast. He worked incessantly to get us the best deal possible. Mike Cossette has my full endorsement!!!!!
Always a pleasure to work with
It is always a pleasure to work with the Cossette team on my Real Estate projects. I will use them again and again. I have engaged with them on selling my properties in the Austin and Dripping Springs areas. They have also been very helpful in the finding of Real Estate to purchase. Purchases would include vacant land, home sites, and rental units. My requirements are always very specific for my purchases. I am always very pleased that the "Team" does not show my properties that will not meet my requests. They realize that my time is very important and I have never felt that the time that we spend together was not very productive. Some of my requests have been difficult to accomplish. The team has always continued to work on filling my request with a positive attitude. Sincerely, Warren Ely
