Michael Linden is excellent in every way.Estelle Miller Revocable Trust/Trustee
We had the pleasure of working with Michael to buy our home and sell our current home, and we couldn't have been happier with the experience. Michael is incredibly knowledgeable of the market, and went above and beyond to help prepare us in making an offer for the perfect home. Michael is diligent and responsive, and took the time to get to know us as we looked for our home and the right buyers for our other property. Throughout the process he was sure to keep us updated every step of the way, and provided support and guidance. We were particularly impressed with Micheal’s negotiation skills that we admired as fair and effective. Michael is a true professional, and strived to identify the right home for our needs. He makes himself available to show you the desired homes at your convenience. Michael provides great insight to help you make an informed decision on both sides of the transaction. We are so grateful Michael helped us find our dream home and sell our previous home and highly recommend him to you and your family.Cheryl Martin
I hired Michael Linden to sell my house in Sandisfield, a few years ago, during Covid. I thought I was ready to sell. Turns out, after he created all of the marketing materials, listed the house on the MLS, and showed it to several potential buyers, I changed my mind. I couldn’t believe how kind and understanding he was. I was so impressed and knew, in that moment, I would definitely hire him when I was certain I was ready to sell.That moment came a month ago, and Michael listed my house, again, with a smile and willingness to do whatever it took to get it sold. I trusted him with every decision, and the particular strategy he devised to get top dollar on my house paid off. He is an expert in his field, and was always available to answer any question and give updates on the progress of the showings.My house sold within a month, with Michael holding my hand every step of the way. He made it was too easy. I would highly recommend him yo sell any property I own. He knows what he’s doing.Margo M.

Michael gave us wonderful attention from Day One. He's honest, knowledgable and a dependable communicator - a real pro. He's also reassuring and kind - in short, a great person. In a stressful and frantic real estate market, he made our buying experience very comfortable."From Terry and Ralph
When we set out to buy a vacation home in the Berkshires, it felt daunting because we lived hours away and were not familiar with the area from a real estate perspective. Fortunately for us, when we found a house that we liked and contacted a realtor through Zillow, Michael Lindon answered our Email. We did not buy that first house, but we did find an awesome real estate agent and eventually found a home that we love. Before even looking at the first house Michael took the time to learn about out family situation and what we were looking for in a vacation home. He explained to us the dynamics of the Berkshire housing market and offered us his thoughts and insights on the different towns and communities in the Berkshires. It became quickly evident that Michael is extremely knowledgeable of the local housing market and gave us some good tips regarding things we should consider in buying a vacation home. Importantly, Michael was easy to work with and was always very responsive to Email and calls and answering whatever question we might have. Throughout the process, I always felt that Michael was only interested in making sure we found a home that was perfect for us and never felt any pressure to buy a specific house. After each home visit, Michael would take the time to provide us his thoughts regarding the pro and cons of that specific house. When we finally found a house we wanted to buy Michael, provided us a list of lawyers, home lenders, home inspectors and contractors and continued to help us navigate through the process right up to our closing date. I would use Michael again and will enthusiastically recommend him to family members and friends.Haixing W. and Kevin C.
I can't imagine that all real estate brokers are as exceedingly educational and accommodating as you have been. You have been such a trusted source of information and we clearly value your opinion. I keep telling people you have been our professor of all things real estate and home ownership. Thank you again!Laura and Lee
We want to extend a huge thank you to Michael Linden for helping us find our dream home in Sheffield. We live in Buffalo and had little knowledge of the area. Our daughter, son in law and son live in Boston and New York. We were looking for a home we could all go to and have many years together as our family grows. Michaels professionalism and demeanor were a perfect fit for our family as he was able to pinpoint just what we were in search of. Again, thank you for all your help. A dream come true. The Cappellazzo Family.Rick and Linda Cappellazzo

After a year of living in our Richmond home, we can say with confidence that if it wasn’t for Michael’s diligence in finding exactly what we wanted, we would not be as happy as we are now. My wife and I are both military retirees and moved many times during our careers. We’ve purchased many homes during over the decades and had both good and not-so-good brokers. When we decided to retire to the Berkshires, we were in the Washington DC area and could not always travel here to look at homes. After we met Michael on our second trip, he sat down with us and listened to what we wanted in a location and home. On subsequent trips and many emails from Michael, every house he found for us to tour was almost exactly what we wanted. We finally found the house we’re in after only three trips and have been so happy. He made the process so easy and transparent. Michael is a listener; a rare quality for anyone who is in sales.If you are thinking of buying a house here in the magical Berkshires, Michael Linden is exactly who you want. Because of his well-earned reputation, he is in demand, but rest assured, he will be laser focused on your needs.Michael and Mary Lawrence
Michael it has been such a pleasure to work with you! Friendly warm informative presence, great follow through, great help strategizing through glitches, and besides a great landscape eye.Patricia P
Michael guided us through our successful hunt for a house in the Berkshires with grace, skill, and perseverance. It was a pleasure dealing with such a nice, professional, and knowledgeable agent, who answered all of our questions before, during, and after our purchase- making sure we not only found the home we wanted, but also giving us the local knowledge that is so crucial when relocating.We have purchased six other homes in our 38 years of marriage, and Michael proved to be the best agent we ever dealt with. We would recommend him to anyone!Bob & Rits Jenkins
