Testimonials from Buyers
During the height of the house buying frenzy we were attempting to purchase a house. It was almost impossible to be a winner in that environment but Mike pulled it off for us. We were able to buy our dream home at a reasonable price considering the market at the time. The sellers were impressed by Mike’s professionalism and innovation. Because of Mike they decided to sell their home to us even though we were not the highest bidder. Choose Mike for your transaction, he will do his best for you and get you the best deal possible. - Jim Borgman
"We had been going back in forth in our home search for over a year and employed Mike during the time. He was very patient with us as we were finicky buyers. No pressure from him even though we darted from one area of the buying range and map to another."
- Uberunknown, Zillow
"Mike is amazing. I'm a first time buyer with many questions and concerns. He sat with us for hours going over all the documentation and ensuring I was comfortable with each decision and clause. Mike was with me every step of the way and always a step ahead even with coordinating with the lender and escrow."
- Natnaree Uriyapongson, Zillow

'Mike is Amazing! I highly recommend Mike to anyone trying to buy or sell a home! He has a lot of experience in the industry! He is very knowledgeable, professional and has his customers best interest in mind. He sincerely wants to make his customers happy!
My husband and I had been researching different areas in Orange County, CA for a while and when we found the area we liked we contacted Mike. He researched many properties in the area and was able to help us find the house of our dreams!! He walked us through the entire process and was always available to answer any questions. He also helped to sell our condo.
He gave us great advice on what needed to be done to get the best price, and he was right and our condo ended up selling for more than our asking price and was only on the market for a few days before offers started coming in!! We are very happy we chose Mike as our agent!"

Testimonials from Sellers
"Mike has done an amazing job in helping me sell my property. I interviewed five different realtors and he was the one I chose to go with. I have nothing but great things to say about him. He truly went above and beyond to see that the property was listed and would show as good as anyone could expect."

"Mike Rains in my opinion, is the most professional, kindest, and hardest working realtor I have ever met. My husband Bob and I feel like not only did we make the best choice in picking him for the sale of our home, but we also have gained a life long friend who we will recommend to all our family and loved ones."

“We would like to take this opportunity to give a big kudos to Mike Rains with Remax. He offered exceptional service and expertise during our recent home sale. It was a difficult time for us as we had just lost our mom. But Mike made it so easy we did not have to worry about the details of the house during our time of grief. He provided excellent counsel on preparations, listing, pricing and presentation of the house.
Mike created an amazing video and photo collage for viewing by internet customers. After our first open house weekend, Mike called us with 3 offers on the house, 2 above our asking price! We accepted the highest offer and moved quickly through the escrow process. Mike kept us informed every step of the way. He worked expediently with us and the buyer to reconcile home inspection and transactions of the sale.
We are so grateful to Mike that during one of the most difficult times in our lives, he ministered to us in our grief through his invaluable realtor experience and assistance. We highly recommend Mike Rains as a man of integrity and respect who has proven himself with excellent care and service during the sale of our home.”

“When it became time to consider a move for my mother to go into assisted living, there were a few things to consider. One of the more important things was the sale of her house. After someone approached us regarding selling it and they expressed interest, it became more apparent that I needed to find someone that would help with this process. Well, I had talked with Mike Rains in the past and have gotten to know him some and also I know a few people who had used Mike in the purchase of their properties, so the decision on who to go to was a very easy decision for me.
I contacted Mike and inquired of his availability to help with this and he jumped right on board. He handled all of the paperwork for us, gave guidance and suggestions on the better way of doing things and even met at my mother’s new residence to make sure that she understood what was going on and was agreeable to this. His professionalism and Christ centered attitude through this was a blessing. Mike helped us walk through each aspect of the sale, making sure that things were done, not just for personal interest, but also what would be best for both parties. I would recommend Mike to anyone who has any need for a Realtor.
His willingness to discuss options, make suggestions and also be available ensure that all of the process is completed as smoothly as possible. “

"Mike was first my Seller's agent on a very long difficult sell. He handled the divorce situation very professionally and was respectful of both parties and their interests. Great communication skills make it very easy to deal with all the intricacies of a real estate deal. After the successful sale of the house, Mike became my Buyer's Agent. He has gone to great lengths to help me find and secure housing. He even jumped a block wall fence at a property that didn't have the right keys and he became trapped in the backyard.
I am now in escrow, and am hoping that it comes to a close soon. As is often the case in real estate, many snags come along the way that try and derail the deal.
He has stuck with me and the deal and has worked very hard with all parties concerned to resolve issues and get the job done. If you are looking for an honest, hard-working professional realtor, I highly recommend Mike Rains."
- Pam Hoppes
"I signed up with Mike Rains sight unseen on the recommendation of a Houston Texas realtor. Best thing I ever did. Having been in the military, I moved approximately 20 times in 27 years and 18 of those moves involved realtors to sell and buy my homes. I have never come across a realtor that worked as hard as Mike did. we worked by phone and texts continuuosly as you can imagine on either side of the country. The property was a mess. Every time I ask him to do something, he would do so cheerfully. At times I would feel bad because it isn't a realtors job to bring up a house to a sellable condition. He'd understood my quandary and rose to the occasion. He hooked me up with an auction company that worked for his office. After that, It was a piece of cake because Johan Graham took the ball and ran with it. Another star of this great team. Thank you Mike, I would recommend you for the fantastic work you do for your clients." -Ernest Veranes
"Mike was with us every step of the way when we sold our home in Lake Forest. He went above the call of duty. Gave us expert advice. I would use him again in a second. Highly recommend Mike as your realtor." - Tom Cunningham
"Mike provides the perfect combo of seasoned professional expertise with a genuine personal touch (not a superficial token attempt). No need to sacrifice one over the other with him..." - Alyn Loyd
"From start to finish, Mike was very thorough in explanations and expectations. He offered suggestions on how best to prepare our home for sale, and was always available to answer questions. I must admit, we were a bit concerned when the COVID-19 pandemic hit in the middle of our house sale, but Mike and his team persisted until closing was complete. We can't thank Mike enough for constant communication during this challenging time. This is the second time our family has used Mike Rains to sell a house, and we highly recommend him. He is a man of integrity and a true joy to work with." - Teamvictory2
"Mike made the sale of our property simple and easy. He sold our property on the 2nd day after the listing launched. I would use Mike and refer him to my family and friends without hesitation." - Steve989144
