I had the pleasure of working with Mike Pickren this year and would highly recommend him to anyone in the Boise area. I was attempting to sell my house For Sale By Owner, after 2 months I was sick of trying to coordinate showings and service appointments. I live out of state and the process was becoming more of a hassle than I wanted to deal with. Mike contacted me via craigslist and effectively convinced me to list it with him, in retrospect I wish he would have been around the two months prior. Selling your house is always a stressful process and when your out of state it's even more stressful. Not only did Mike list it, he did a walk through and gave me a reasonable list of things that I could work on that would help me sell my place. He always kept me in the loop and when it came to negotiations I never doubted he completely had my best interests at heart. I never felt like he was trying to push or talk me into something I didn’t want to do; after working with other realtors I've found this is a rare quality. If it had been possible I would have asked him to handle my real estate transaction in Tennessee. And if I ever make it back to Idaho he will no doubt be my Realtor and my friend.
