I cannot say enough about how valuable Mike Flahaven has been to our family.  Back in 2013, we were looking for a condo in the UCF area for our daughter. That is when we met Mike.  He helped us find the perfect place.  He gave us great advice to help us make a decision, like driving through the complexes at night and on weekends, and talking to current residents.  Jump ahead to 2017, and it was time to sell the condo.  Mike was there again for us.  He coached us through the process once again, making it easy and convenient for us, as well as ensuring we received top dollar!
Around that same time in 2017, Mike helped us navigate a very difficult change for our family.  My aging parents needed to downsize.  One was on board with idea and one was not.  Mike’s knowledge of senior services and downsizing was priceless.  He got us through selling a house, that was not worth what my parents thought it was, purchasing a smaller, nicer place for them, and some financing options ( HECM )  we did not know existed.  All the while having to deal with my cranky father…Now my parents do not struggle on a fixed income and are in a much nicer place.
Although we do not see Mike frequently now, he checks in on us from time to time.  I consider him part of my extended family!  Please reach out to him for your real estate needs, senior or not!  I guarantee you will not be disappointed!

I wanted to thank you personally for all the help and knowledge in the recent closing of my property. It truly has been a blessing working with you and if I should ever need your service again I will be more than happy to contact you and I will gladly pass your name on to any of my friends who are looking for your services.  -Kenny & Brenda Beecroft

Mike helped me buy my very first home and he was referred to me after my mom had recently closed on a house with him. I really felt like I was in good hands with Mike and that he was looking out for my best interest. He really made the house buying process less daunting and I appreciated his thorough communication and willingness to show me as many houses as it took to find the right one!  -Christina Kinard

Michael, I really just want to express my gratitude for all you did to help me downsize from my single family home to my new townhome. I was very lucky to have a realtor that took so much time not only to meet me at every opportunity I had but also to teach me and walk me through the process. I was venturing into something by myself, I hadn’t gone through in a long time and I’m certainly grateful to have had you go out of your way to help with many things. I’m positive a lot of realtors would not have done what you had done for me. Thank you again and I will surely recommend you to anyone!! – Susan Kinard–Oviedo

Being a senior from NJ, I counted on Mike to help me sell my investment property in Orlando. Mike was professional providing guidance, communicated effectively throughout the process and got me top dollar. He handled everything from the tenant that was in place, hiring a landscaper and made arrangement to repair sliding glass door that was vandalized. If you are from out of the area and need to sell your property, Mike will provide peace of mind during the transaction and after.  —Flora Vibar, Jersey City, NJ

As a Senior moving from Orlando to Tampa I would recommend Mike to anybody selling their home or investment property. He was professional, straightforward and communicated effectively throughout the transaction. If it wasn’t for his guidance and consistency to keep all parties on a task we would have never closed escrow. Choose Mike if you want a result.—Bobbie Springer,  Tampa, FL

As a senior moving from Saint Cloud to Winter Haven, I relied on Mike to assist me in all aspects of the sale of my home. I reached out to Mike for his recommendations with a Moving Company and Financial Planner. I found him to be honest, trustworthy and dependable. He kept me informed on a weekly or bi-weekly basis throughout the entire transaction and I knew I could rely on him to resolve any problems that arose.  His guidance and advice were invaluable. I would certainly recommend Mike to anyone who is either or buying or selling a home. He is very knowledgeable and understands all aspects of the real estate business. —Diane Debruyne—Winter Haven, FL

Just wanted to Thank You again for referring Griswold Home Care to me. I found that Herm and Mary Carter Eick were very professional and very understanding. They were able to find someone to stay with Joe, be a companion, fix meals and play cards. While he is somewhat better, I will be much more at ease using Griswold Home Care while I am out of town. It seems like you have found a good agency here.—Carol Fosgate—Orlando, FL
