What clients are saying
Mike is an excellent real estate professional, and is knowledgeable in all areas of real estate. He was very tenacious in our house search and found us the house we end up purchasing,, and successfully guided us through a difficult short sale process. We have dealt with many real estate agents over the years with the many properties we have purchased or sold and Mike has been the best in every aspects.
I thoroughly enjoy working with Mike to purchase my first home. He made the first-time home buying process as least stressful as possible. Mike proved to be very knowledgeable on local neighborhoods and ensured we found the perfect fit for all my criteria.
Mike is very knowledgeable, responsive and helpful. He strives to find the best situation for you as a client. Not only did he find us several homes to check out based on our criteria, but he also gave us valuable insight about the pros and cons of each place along the way. This ranged from knowledge about quality of materials used within the homes, to perks of each location geographically, and everything in between, until we arrived at a home that was perfect. Mike helped us along every step of the way, and I highly recommend him
Mike gave me great and honest advice and helped me a lot when I sold my old condo and bought my new home in DC. I was a bit concerned about the process as I had to do both transactions simultaneously. Mike’s work made the process very smooth. He followed every step very closely, was very responsive to my questions, and provided me great support to make my condo ready to go to the market. I sold my place in less than two weeks! I also appreciated a lot that he understood my preferences and taste for my new home, so I could find the right place. I am very happy that I found the perfect place for me in a wonderful neighborhood. And I am very thankful for Mike’s help in this process. I would definitely recommend Mike to my friends and colleagues. He is a very professional agent, smart, and a great person.
Mike was wondrously helpful in my home buying experience. Being somewhat new to the area (~1yr), I relied upon him to fill me in with the local information, state laws, and VA processes. When we made an offer, his advice and responsiveness enabled me to confidently make a fair offer, which fortunately was accepted. I ended up with a great location at a very fair price. Most of all, I enjoyed the process, with Mike's assistance. Mike always respected my interests and preferences, never pressured me (unlike some other realtors I've met), and worked in my best interest. I give Mike Swinney my highest recommendation
It is with much satisfaction that I write these lines to commend Mr. Swinney's work. Mr. Swinney was very professional during the time that he helped us find the perfect home to meet our needs. Mr. Swinney was extremely patient and collaborative and both my husband and I would not hesitate to seek his services if we were ever in need to find another property in his area of service

There’s more to marketing a home than getting it listed in MLS. I’ll bring all my tools to bear in making sure your home gets noticed, including having it professionally photographed, producing high-quality brochures, and holding open houses.
