What Clients Say
Jerry Bookwalter — In one word, Michael Oliver is the "Greatest" as he met and exceeded our expectations in our recent purchase of our home in Tucson. Our principal residence is in Washington State, but we have been working with Michael for at least three years (to locate a second home) and we found him to be exceptionally patient, not pushy, responsive, prompt and punctual through out the entire process of looking in several neighborhoods, helping us negotiate with the seller, and assisting us with the closing. Michael also keeps "his head in the game" and keeps you well informed as to what is happening in the market. I would definitely work with him again and would not hesitate for a moment to recommend him for all of your real estate needs. Completely Satisfied, Jean & Jerry, West Richland, WA
Shirley Hallett — I would highly recommend Michael Oliver for any of your real estate needs. Michael has a natural hark work ethic and will put your interests far ahead of his own. Few Real Estate Brokers have the ability or desire to go above and beyond but Michael without question does. If you are looking for a talented real estate broker with extreme competence and a passion for doing the best job possible Michael Oliver is for you!
Falena Reed, Tucson — I would highly recommend Michael for any residential real estate need. I listed my home to test the market and received a contract on day 5 for just $2,400 less than my asking price. I was not prepared for such a quick sale! I had not even started looking for a new home and now needed to move quickly. He was able to swiftly provide a portal with listings that met my search criteria. We looked at a large number of homes in a very short period of time and found my dream home. Throughout the process of selling and buying, he was exceptionally patient, helpful, and supportive. There were so many things to address promptly and simultaneously (contract negotiations for sale and purchase, inspection repairs on sell property, estimates on repairs for buy property, loan requirements...), and he was invaluable in all elements. Additionally, the sale and purchase were both happening during the Christmas and New Year's holidays, which further complicated matters. But Michael was there every step of the way, ensuring that everything was handled. He removed barriers and eliminated delays. Michael is a pleasure to deal with. He responds very quickly to all requests and inquiries and is very detail oriented. Again, if you have real estate needs - Michael is your man!
Keri Sanders, Tucson — Mike, I am pretty protective over my Mom. I was so worried about where she would call "home" before we met you. Honestly, you were fantastic!!! Prior to meeting you I had called other realtors, and guess what? They never called back. You worked so hard for my Mom, I would refer you to EVERYONE!!! I do not know what would have happened if it weren't for you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking such good care of my Mom.

Eric Painter — Since 2003 I have handled the financing for over 120 of Michael's clients. I have been most impressed with Michael's professionalism and dedication to his clients. Michael is a very knowledgeable hard working agent. As a Senior Loan Officer I appreciate working with him and his clients. I can honestly say he truly looks out for his clients interests way before his own!
Mel Castro Vidal — Yayyy Michael! Great Realtor! Use Michael as your realtor; can't go wrong!!
Marina Ruiz — I love Michael Oliver... He sold me my house in 2004.... Very honest and good at what he does.
Christian Ortiz — Michael helped my husband and I buy our first home. From the get go he was great at communicating with us and educating us on the home buying process. Everytime I had a question he would email me back within a timely manner, and was with us every step of the way! After closing, there were some unforeseen things come up with our home and again, he ensured that we had everything we needed to be happy with our first home. Needless to say....we are extremely happy in our home....and extremely thankful for Michael and his commitment to his clients!!!
Samantha Gallego — From the first minute we crossed paths with Michael he has done everything in his power to make our buying process very smooth and easy to understand. His knowledge, expertise and the way everything was handled was nothing less than professional. He is one of the nicest individuals we have met and will definitely refer his name to others. Thank you so much Michael! -Sam & Jose
Rocio Cowper — This week is our 1st year in our house. Thank you Michael Oliver. We love our house!!
Stephanie and Arol Augsburger — Dear Michael and Heather: What a remarkable job you did selling our Tucson home in record time and with such efficiency and complete attention to detail. My husband and I are impressed and pleased with your outstanding efforts and your ability to assist us in obtaining contractors to clean, repair and patch in preparation for your amazing marketing and subsequent sale. We have never before received a full offer on a property in just four days! Your advice throughout this two-month process was sound and served us well from beginning to end. Since we are out-of-state, we particularly appreciated your use of advanced technology to keep things moving quickly and consistently and your willingness to be available to discuss issues or answer our questions. Thank you for a fabulously smooth and pleasant experience!
User1802493 (From Zillow's Ratings and Reviews) — My husband and I enlisted Michael's assistance after finding him via an Internet search. We lived in Virginia and relied solely on his expertise and knowledge of the real estate industry in the Tucson area - and that of his sales partner, Heather. Our entire home purchase was done via email, snail mail, fax, phone, and Internet. Since the houses were selling faster than we could get an offer submitted, we began looking outside the Tucson area - 80 miles north in Casa Grande - and without hesitation Michael and Heather were on it 100%. We closed in July and laid eyes on our new home in person for the very first time in August. They handled the inspections, the final walk-through, and even held the keys to the property for us until we arrived in Arizona! Everything went off without a hitch. Michael will be our second call when we decide to buy again; our first call will be to get pre-approved for a new mortgage. We have been in our new home for 3 months now and are loving everything about it. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Michael to anybody in the Tucson/Phoenix area.
User622836 — (From Zillow's Ratings and Reviews)We were very impressed with Michael when he sold our house. We expected to wait months to sell but Michael had a buyer for our house in less then two weeks and we closed on time. Everything went great. When we move back to Oro Valley he will be the first one we call.
David Davis, Tucson (From Zillow's Ratings and Reviews) — Michael was a great help in the locating and purchasing of my first home. He is a highly knowledgeable, sharp man. He is a straight shooter, negotiated the price of the home down, and closed on it earlier than expected. Thanks again Michael!
Megan Homan, Tucson — We are so happy we found Michael to work with buying our new home in Tucson. We have worked with many real estate people and Michael Oliver is by far the best real estate agent ever. My husband calls him the Jedi of Realtors. Michael has a passion for what he does and he goes above and beyond the call of duty. He is very knowledgeable and gave us pivotal insights on properties that helped guide us to our perfect home. He was always available and there to answer questions, make calls on our behalf, and negotiate the best possible price for us on our home. If you want the best realtor in Tucson, Michael is your man.
Dana Garigan, Tucson — One day I was looking on the web for a Realtor and found Michael Oliver's website. I was so impressed with the site that I called them, and Heather called me back in 2 minutes and was there to help me find a home. From that moment on, I was so happy I called them. Heather and Michael found me the perfect home, and they were so helpful in the process of getting my home. They were there for me every step of the way to getting my new home. Thanks for the great service.
Rick Rodriguez, Tucson — Michael we wanted to thank you for all your help with our home buying process. You were extremely knowlegable when it came to any questions we had and there were a lot of questions. You always got back to us right away which took all the worry, or concern about buying our home away. You made the whole buying process easy and straight forward. We will highly recommend you to anyone we know who wants to sell or buy a house.
Karen Kalinski — I would like to recommend Michael Oliver to anyone who needs an excellent knowledgeable service-oriented realtor. I retired and sold my house in California this year and moved to Tucson, so I had tight timing requirements. I was able to use his user-friendly and extensive website beforehand to locate houses that I was interested in. When my California house sold in 5 days, I was able to fly to Tucson the next weekend and Michael was able to immediately show me the houses I had picked out plus others that seemed to fit my requirements. I was able to see all the houses on my list in 2 days and decided to buy a brand new house that was not yet built, negotiated the price and arrangements with his help and expertise, and flew back to California. He knew that the builders were some of the best in Tucson, which gave me reassurance. I then moved to Tucson into a 1 bedroom apartment until my house was finished being built. When it was finished 7 months later and I was ready to close, Michael came to the final walkthrough and the closing, and tracked a few minor details on the house for me that were not yet completed. He also gave me recommendations on various services I needed, like a handyman and a housecleaner. I was very happy with his help and expertise. His website made it a lot easier for an out-of-town buyer to check out properties beforehand. He was very responsive in addressing any questions and/or concerns I had along the way. If I ever need the services of a realtor again (hopefully, not soon), I will definitely go back to him.
Dick Carter, Piedmont, CA — I would recommend Michael Oliver for any of your Tucson real estate needs. We are the parents of twins attending the University of Arizona. With the reasonable Tucson home prices it made good financial sense for us to buy a residence for our children, rather than rent. I visited Michael’s Website and was impressed that it spoke to this opportunity. I contacted Michael, and could not have been more satisfied with the service he provided. We had a lot of questions and requests, and Michael handled each of them with competence and patience. He did a great job for us and I am confident he will do the same for you.
Jim Laliberte — I thought it important to tell you that (you exceed) what I had imagined you to be like after talking to you. You personify "old school" values....and that's not always the case these days...as I'm sure you are aware. And Heather? Exceptional....5 stars!! She was very understanding...did a portal for me, etc. Whatever happens....your company will be at the forefront of my mind should I need Real Estate representation in the future. Thank you.
Name Withheld — I just wanted to say "Thank you". When you were referred to me by Marissa Thomas I had no idea how compassionate you were about your job. I called you from another state 3 days after losing my husband. You e-mailed me photos of every home that I was interested in daily. You were sympathetic to my situation. Never in almost 70 years have I ever had such faith in someone that would be handling my finances. Moving to Tucson from Florida was a hard transaction. Although, with you on my side I could not go wrong. I am now in my beautiful home, and staying busy with all of the unpacking. I know that my husband would have approved of the home, and he certainly would have liked you. To say Thank You seems so inadequate. If anyone would ever like to get a hold of me to know my wonderful experience with you and considering you as their realtor, please have them e-mail me. There is NO better realtor than Michael Oliver!!!!
Mike and Stacy Meade, New Homeowners, Rancho Sahuarita — Michael is the ultimate professional. We are so fortunate to have worked with him to purchase our new home in Sahuarita. He possesses a positive spirit, tremendous work ethic, integrity, and a wealth of knowledge about the Tucson area. Having just moved from Ohio, we needed someone whom we could trust to lead us in the right direction, particularly given the uncertain housing market. Michael completely understood our needs and presented us with appropriate housing options in terms of size and price range. However, he did not push us to make a move too quickly. Without him, we would not have found the home we purchased. Michael's most valuable quality is his personal touch. He is always available. If you call, email or text him a message, he'll respond within five minutes, no matter the day or time. He truly cares about his clients and will go the extra mile to make sure you are happy. We would, and will, highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to buy or sell property in the area. Should we be in a position to purchase in the future, we will most definitely work with Michael.
Shannon Carman — Michael Oliver is an amazing realtor. He was able to sell our house in 8 days! His professional advertising is what places him miles above the rest of realtors. He not only has the right combination on getting the house out to the public but also is available to the seller/buyer. He was the only "top-rated" realtor who contacted me directly within the hour of me requesting information about possibly being my realtor. Michael Oliver just does it right and has the track record to prove his selling ability. I would recommend Michael Oliver unconditionally. The house he sold was on the market previously with other realtors for over a year and never had an offer. Not only did he sell this house in 8 days, he was able to negotiate with the buyers effectively to ensure a great offer was placed. If you are looking for a realtor to sell your house, Michael Oliver is your man! Thank you again Michael for all your efforts, professionalism, and constant communication throughout the process!
Gonzalez Family, Tucson Arizona — Dear Michael, thank you for all of your hard work in locating and helping us find our home. We highly doubt we could of ever found a home to match our family better than our current home does without you helping us. We truly are so satisfied with all the hard work you did that we can not say thank you enough.
Lopez Family, Tucson AZ — We appreciate the effort you put in to helping us find our new home. Without your expert help in finding a builder and community that works perfect for us I know we would still be looking today. Thank you so much for your help. It really means a lot to us that you always went the extra mile to help us with our questions and concerns over our brand new home.
Cindy and John Jones, Sahuarita AZ — Michael, we couldn't be happier. You helped us buy our first home and it's great. We now have a great home that we can call our own. Besides, NO MORE PAYING RENT! Without you we would have been lost but you honestly kept us calm and guided us right through the whole process. It was so much easier than we ever imagined. We thought buying a home was going to be so much harder but you showed us it's a piece of cake. Anyway we just wanted to say thanks a ton for all your dedication on our first home.
Chad and Denise King — Hi Michael, just wanted to thank you for assisting us in buying our home. There were so many times you came through for us like when we first explained to you that we had been looking for a long time and that we couldn't find a home that we really liked, you searched forever to find us a home that was perfect for us. You honestly surprised us and made our home search what was a hassle into an enjoyable and fun experience. We should of called you sooner! Thanks Again!
Rich Jackson — Just wanted to say thanks for helping me with finding a home, since my schedule is always changing. You made yourself available to me and that helped me out a lot. Thanks again. Next time I need a real estate Agent I'll know who to call.
Briggs family — We received this comment in reference to Michael's blog article, Negotiating with New Construction Home Builders in Tucson, Marana, Sahuarita, Oro Valley AZ. Good article and I appreciate the insights. We're shopping in the NC market, a bit distant from Tucson.
Duane L. Dietrich, Ph.D. — Michael has been my representative on several separate investment home purchases in Tucson over the past 6 months. Michael knows the market and is quite skilled in negotiating favorable purchase prices. His knowledge, of real estate and things in general, exceeds that of most of the brokers I have known in the past. If you are looking for a Realtor to represent you in purchasing investment or other real estate, I highly recommend Michael Oliver for the task.
Bob and Nancy Dietrich — We were coming from out of state to find real estate investment opportunities, and discovered Michael from his web site. His insights and local market knowledge were evident, and we set up an appointment to discuss a path forward and see some properties. We were not disappointed. After our first trip, we found many properties that met our needs and we made offers. Michael helped negotiate the best deals, painlessly walk us through the offer process and documentation, and assisted with any pre-qualifications. We were successful. However, Michael's support didn't stop after the offer. Given we are not local, he facilitated all inspections, and worked directly with our mortgage broker for smooth closings. He attended the closings, and transferred keys to our property manager. The service and personal attention we received from Michael was exceptional! For those investing from out of state, I would highly recommend Michael. He is conscientious and trustworthy, and will always look after your best interests.
Kelly Cardwell — We started our Arizona home search in Hawaii. We had never even visited Tucson. We are a military family and time is of the essence during a permanent change of station. We found Michael Oliver's website online and were very impressed with the wealth of information and especially his picks of the week. To our delight, he is even better in person. He is efficient, hard working, honest, and has extensive knowledge of the area. He will go the extra mile for you. We actually ended up buying our home from Hawaii based on Internet pictures and his knowledge of the area. He even suggested people to make repairs and secured some bids for us. We highly recommend him for all of your real estate needs! He will be the first person we call for our future real estate needs. Thank you so much Michael!
The Ramirez Family — We just want to say we highly recommend to use Michael and Heather as your real estate agents. They are both such hard workers we are thankful to have had them as our realtors. Heather, we appreciate everything you did for us from answering all our questions to helping us find a home. We just want to say thanks to both of you.
Christine Hrutkay — My husband and I have been working with Michael and Heather for over a year now. We found their website easily and found it to be the most complete. We then purchased a condo based upon information they had given us about the area. That condo was placed on the market a year later by Michael and Heather and sold in 5 days. We listened to their advice about location and trends in the Tucson area when we purchased it. We now live in a beautiful townhome also purchased with the help of Michael and Heather. All sales went effortlessly due to their experience and I am grateful. Our move here to Tucson has been exciting and I now have two great friends and money in my pocket.
Amit KG — Michael did a great job during the entire process of selling the house. He was well versed with the market prices and worked with me in coming up with the right price range for the market. He did a fantastic job in showcasing the house with awesome pictures. He also worked with us to identify our needs and to accommodate our busy schedule during the closing of the house. GOOD JOB...Wishing you the best... Michael!
Joan and Bud Mahnken — Michael and Heather Oliver were our realtors for the recent sale of our house. They are both very professional people. Calls and texts were returned promptly and they provided support each step of the way. This move would have been so much more difficult without their knowledge and support. We would definitely recommend them as realtors.
Ej Sherry — Heather, I just want to thank you for all the professionally done work that you have done on our behalf. Take a bow to yourself. And again thanks.
Christian Wingire — We found Michael through his web site. After a phone call we had high hopes he would find us our dream home. The homes he showed us were exactly the type of homes we wanted to look at. What impressed me more was his knowledge of the area, values of each home shown to us, and as we walked through the homes he showed us good points as well as showing us the possible bad points of the home. Through this process of looking for our dream home we relied on Michael's recommendations and he gained our trust. Then we found our home. Michael took complete charge working with the builder in the purchasing process. He worked with us as he helped us every step of the way in buying our dream home. Michael made buying our home a very easy process. After purchasing the home, Michael continued to support us as he followed up on the inspections through the final construction process all the way through to closing. Michael has kept in touch with us providing suggestion on issues with the builder to our satisfaction. We recommend Michael Oliver if you are looking for a new home in the Tucson area.
Ashley Campbell — I had a great experience with Michael Oliver’s team. They helped me list my house and find a new home to move to. Selling your home can be an overwhelming process, but I felt comforted in knowing I was listing with such a skilled and capable team. They were always very professional and I was impressed with their knowledge of the market and business. I am not surprised that they have such a good reputation in Tucson. Their buyer’s agent, Courtney, did an excellent job helping me find a new house once mine sold. She was very knowledgable of the Tucson area and helped direct me to an area that fit my needs. If you are looking for competent and professional realtors to guide you through the buying/selling process, I would highly recommend Michael Oliver’s team.
Svetlana Petersen — I would recommend everyone to work with Cortney Hoch. She is amazing person who willing to work hard even on her own days off to help people to finds home they would love. She will always find time to reply and answer all your questions. It was great experience to work with her. She is professional , patient and understanding and we thank her for all her hard work. Way to go Cortney!!!!!! You are awesome!!!
Robert Dietrich — I have purchased and sold multiple investment homes with Michael, and he was knowledgeable and proactive in every step. He has a network of experienced contractors that can help with any repairs required to address closing inspection items. I would highly recommend Michael.
John Consedine — Being from out of state and having never been to the area before, I was just a bit apprehensive to say! But Michael and Heather quickly put my mind at ease with their professionalism and even taking a call while at their kids baseball game! Paper work was prompt, they followed up on any question that I had in no time at all. I move in this month to my new home and could not be happier!
Caryn Goldberg PhD — Heather Is fantastic! She is very professional and delightful to work with. She is very conscientious and deligent in her work. Heather answered all of our questions promptly, and was very attentive to our needs. I would highly recommend her!!
Cody Nirschel — I recently purchased a home with Michael and Heather. They were both very good to answer any questions and quick to help get the house I wanted. Both very great people. Thank you guys.
JoJo B — Michael and Heather have handled numerous sales and purchases for us over a number of years. In this time, every experience is the same - highly professional, efficient and excellent customer service. Could not imagine anyone else representing us to this level!!
Marty LeClair — Heather is extremely caring & truly listens to what her clients are looking for in a home. Michael & Heather are professionals in the real estate industry & it is evident in the way they manage & complete the home buying process. Based on their experience, integrity & knowledge level, it's easy to recommend them as the "go to" Realtor Team! Thank you again!
Trisha Leclair — Being a first time home buyer is scary, luckily my fiancé and I had the pleasure to work with Michael and Heather Oliver. We were nervous and excited about finding our first home but not knowing the ends and outs of buying a home was stressful. Heather took the time to explain in detail what options were available and what expectations to have. Working with these brilliant real estate agents was the best thing we could of done and we are so happy we bought our home through them! We got the house we dreamed of. We highly recommend them, they truly exceeded our expectations!!!
Sandra Smith — We thought we wanted to move to Tucson from Eureka Springs where we live. I found Michael Oliver online. He set us up to receive emails of listings that would fit our needs and each email had a personal message from Michael which was very unusual and much appreciated. He also promptly answered several emails I had sent about specific properties that I thought might work for us. We made a recent trip to Tucson and Michael set us up with a very nice agent, Shirley Hallett, who showed us several fine properties but the ones we liked wouldn't permit us to have our RV parked on the property. Shirley even went beyond and sent the HOA "rules" for one of the properties but it didn't allow long-term parked RVs. The next day we drove to Bisbee, AZ which a friend had told us about and we found a home that exactly met all our needs including allowing the RV to be parked right in front of the house. Our offer was accepted so it looks like we will be moving to Bisbee! Thanks Michael and Shirley -- we'll tell others how great you both were!
>Sheena Shelton — I have worked with Heather and Michael many times over the course of two years. I am always impressed with their expansive knowledge of Tucson and it's surrounding areas. They really do go all over, out and beyond for their clients.
Mike Waskiewicz — I have been working with Michael & Heather for years, and it is always a pleasure . They are true professionals who want the best for their clients. They are dependable, reliable, trust worthy agents who are always willing to go the extra mile.
Chris Bergman — My Wife and I recently sold our Oro Valley home and absolutely loved our experience with Michael and Heather and the Oliver Team. The Professionalism demonstrated form when we 1st made the decision to put our house on the market was 2nd to none. Very knowledgeable about the market and their pre-work prior to our initial appointment was excellent. Their Teams response to calls, text and emails is unmatched. If we buy or sell again in Tucson the Oliver Team will be the 1st call we make.
