Michael Reed Client Testimonials
Sold a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $250K in Beaver, PA.
Preparing for a home sale can be a daunting process with many questions on comparable values, pricing, updates and staging. The basic question being: "How do I maximize the value of my home to sell it in a reasonable period of time.John Shutey of the Reed & Shutey team provided expert guidance along the way. Beginning with a home tour and assessment, John provided expert guidance by reviewing recent sales and listing of other comparable homes in the area to give us a true indication of value and pricing. His suggestions on updating the interior with a fresh coat of paint and other minor upgrades, while avoiding a more costly kitchen remodel were valuable. This allowed the buyers to get a beautifully refreshed, well-kept home, while allowing them full control to select the kitchen updates they wanted.John created an excellent sales package of brochures and web-based presentations that showed the home to maximum benefit. Since the home was empty of furnishings following an estate sale, he "digitally staged" a number of photographs which helped to attract interest and showings.John and his team were with us every step of the way; always keeping us updated of marketing plans and showings and, most importantly, returned phone calls quickly. We never had to "chase" him to respond.Throughout he negotiation process, he offered expert guidance on how to best respond to minor home inspection issues and coordinated the small, but important, details to bring the property to close.I handled this listing as Executor of a family member's estate. Based on my experience, I would list my own home with John and the Reed & Shutey Team when the need arises. John and his associates are all about client service, and they get the job done.

I worked with Mike Reed and Jason Casavle with the Purchse of our first home. My wife and I were nervous to say the least, this is a pretty big decision. I was impressed with industry knowledge and expertise both Mike and Jason had. My wife and I felt completely at ease, we spent a lot of time up front to get a realistic idea of what we wanted/needed. From the time we started the process to the end we never felt alone. Thanks for a great experience!

As first time home buyers, we interviewed a number of agents before deciding to work with Mike Reed of the Reed and Shutey team. It was one of the best choices we made in the entire process; I cannot say enough good things about the Reed & Shutey team. We relied heavily on Mike's expert knowledge of the process and the area. He carefully listened to our needs and wants and observed our reactions as we asked to see property after property. His observance paid off as he was able to help us fine tune our search. Throughout he was adamant that we choose the house that was perfect for us even when it meant more work for him. Ultimately, Mike's ability to get us in as the first potential buyer led directly to our winning our house. The Reed & Shutey team's service does not seem to know any bounds. They are incredibly responsive and more than willing to put in the work necessary to get the house/sale you want. If you are buying or selling a house in the greater Pittsburgh area you should be using the Reed & Shutey team. We certainly will again.

My experience with the Reed & Shutey team was phenomenal! I had listed my first home with other agents and the effort and personal attention I received was nonexistent. The Reed & Shutey team was completely different. I could contact them about any issue big or small and they always had an answer. They helped me to sell my house in the middle of winter when nobody is traditionally looking to buy for more than I thought we'd get for it. In addition to selling our house, they helped us find the home of our dreams and negotiate it down into our price range by getting seller to take $35,000 off the asking price!!! I promise you if go with the The Reed & Shutey team you won't be disappointed. They will be there with you every step of the way.

The whole team at Reed & Shutey hit it out of the park! I met Mike on a Friday, and had it sold in the same day! From there everything else was basically taken care of for me. All I needed to do was show up and collect my check for the sale of my house. Give these guys a shot. A+++

As the executor of an elderly friend's estate, I needed to sell her house after she died. I contacted and met with Mike Reed. After an inspection and evaluation of the property, I signed a contract with the Reed and Shutey Team. Before the house was totally prepared to be listed, Mike called me and told me he had a very interested party, and asked if he could take the person through the house "as is." I agreed, and within 24 hours had a buyer! The entire process was as seamless as could be! The final sale price netted what was needed to satisfy the legal obligations of. Estate.

Excellent service provided by our agent John Shutey. The house was sold in two weeks. His suggestions on doing minor improvements to the house were instrumental in the quick sale. He is very approachable, friendly, and responsive. Always returns your calls and promptly replies to text messages and emails. John even spent his own time and material to prepare the house for Open House. On couple of occasions, he even mowed our yard. hard to find an agent like this !!! Their online document signing portal saves a lot of time.

Mike Reed is a true professional and outstanding real estate agent. My wife and I were extremely thankful to have his expertise when searching for our first home in Pittsburgh. Mike is very knowledgeable about the real estate industry and is willing to take the time to explain every detail of the process. He makes sure you're making your own decisions with the best information possible. As first time home buyers, my wife and I spent countless hours on the phone and in person with him discussing various topics on home buying. My wife and I cannot thank him enough for his flexibility as he would take us to visit homes on the weekends and in the evenings after work. He made the process very seamless. One of the best suggestions he made, which turned out to be extremely helpful was to put the closing date in the middle of the month. This allowed us ample time to move out of our apartment over a few weeks rather than rush a move over a short weekend.John, his partner was also extremely helpful during the closing process as he helped us edit our letter to the home owners. This letter helped show our true intentions and interest in buying our dream first home.I would highly recommend the Reed & Shutey Team to friends and family! They are the best!

My realtor, John Shutey, was great! I just bought my first house and couldn't be happier. I was really nervous about the process, but John put everything at ease.

They were actually our second realtor after we had a less than stellar experience with our first realtor. From the very start everything was done very professional. The advice given on the home pricing as well as a few suggestions for upgrades worked well. I did end up working mostly with Mike but I'm sure the same goes for John. He was always available and promptly answered calls and text. I would definitely highly recommend the Reed & Shutey team.

The Reed and Shutey Team is how real estate should be done. They were available anytime we needed them for questions, advice and reassurance. They had our house sold within 10 days of listing and have provided guidance every step of the way. We feel confident they have our best interests as their priority and we have never doubted their commitment to helping us move forward. They'll make you feel how Rod Tidwell felt with Jerry Maguire as his agent, like we're their number one and they'll do whatever it takes to help us achieve our goals. Clients for life.

We were very exacting in what we wanted from a house and John was very patient and supportive throughout the process. It constantly felt that John had our best interest at heart and was a great person to work with. The team helped us find out dream home, secure a great deal and make closing as easy as possible. Highly recommended.

After only living in the Moon area for 18 months we found it necessary to sell our house to relocate. We had seen the active marketing that Michael and John do in the area. From sponsoring a community yard sale, where they pick up the tab for everything like signs, advertising and balloons (They even came around the morning of and put helium filled balloons on each house participating. To sending post cards letting folks know the market temperature. They were the right choice. On the first review of the house they offered to come and help with some landscaping (my back says I should have taken them up on it). We ended up moving before closing and they have been great during that process. Even going to the house to make sure we didn't leave any dishes in the dish washer. Moving is hectic and having Michael and John helped us not need to worry about selling our house.

This team helped me purchase my first home. They were beyond helpful and explained everything to me that made sense to me. I would recommended this team to everyone. They made this experience so easy. Everyone says buying a home was stressful. I would say the exact opposite with The Reed and Shutey team.

Great experience beginning to end. House on the market less than a week. House prep was a breeze due to the extensive resources provided. Negotiation, inspection, and closing went without a hitch. Highly recommended.

Worked with John Shutey for the purchase of my new home. He was very patient with me and my girls and very attentive to all we were looking for. I was an active home purchaser and did a lot of pre-viewing of properties on line and drive bys and when I found a property I thought was worth seeing, John was quick to get me in to see it. I would recommend the Reed & Shutey Team and would use them again if I ever needed to search for a new home. But since they found me the "perfect" home for my needs, I hope I will not need to call on them too soon!

STOP!!!! ***READ THIS***The Reed & Shutey Team was more than we could have possibly expected! There is zero exaggeration when we say that within 5 minutes of requesting information on a property, John was calling us to offer his expertise. John and Michael were easy to talk to and were always open to our feedback regarding our likes or dislikes on a property. We were NEVER given realtoresque scripting of 'oh that can be changed' or 'keep in mind - this is easy to fix'. John and Michael never gave anything less than 110%. Their patience is equivalent to sainthood, frankly. We were given a multitude of curve balls throughout our closing process with our sellers. Michael was there with a 'batter up' attitude for each and every one thrown at us. He hit every... single... Curveball out of the park. We could go on and on about how wonderful these fellas are, there is no question of that! The bottom line is this - you're only cheating yourself if the Reed & Shutey team isn't representing you!

Mike knew exactly what we were looking for in a home and neighborhood. When we came upon a house, we liked it, but there were hesitations. Once we decided on making an offer, Mike went to work. The seller was more than just a little "unorthodox". With Mike's guidance, confidence, and negotiation skills (more like powers!!!) we got the home at an amazing price and was able to use the money we had saved into the home and make it the way we wanted! We LOVE our home and neighborhood. It was the BEST decision we ever made and have Mike to thank for it!!!!!

The Reed and Shutey Team were very helpful in finding us our perfect home! We were moving back to Pittsburgh from out of state, and they were able to work around our limited schedule. They also took the time to discuss listings on the phone and via email. As first time homebuyers we were naïve to the process and pitfalls. Mike and John were very knowledgeable and professional in answering all of our questions about the process. They worked very hard with the sellers' agent to negotiate a price that we thought was appropriate after analyzing market trends in our area. As we drove around to the different houses, John and Mike told us about the area and how far we would be from work, local shopping, dining, and grocery stores. We would recommend the Reed and Shutey team to our family and friends!

John helped me immensely with my home search. It was my first time buying a home and his guidance was crucial in making the home buying process as stress free as possible. John was extremely generous with his time and was very easy to work with. I would highly recommend John to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home.

I have worked with Michael in a variety of roles including business owner, sales rep to his current role in real estate. I have always been impressed with his customer first demeanor and his overall approach to making sure the customer walked away from any transaction as a reference.I refer family friends and neighbors to Michael without hesitation, because I know exactly how they will be treated and that they will not get better service or more dedication anywhere else. I am happy to provide this reference and if in reading it you have further questions or would like more information - ask Michael - he will gladly give you my cell phone number.

I recently sold my house through Michael. It was during a very busy time, as I had started a new job in the heat of busy season, and was also relocating to another state. Michael made the process so easy from start to finish! He helped me to get my house ready to show, and had great staging ideas that really helped to increase the selling potential. He created such a buzz around my property that the first day that showings were scheduled, there were 15! And the open house was the next day with a lot more traffic. I had an offer OVER asking price within 4 hours of the first showing!!!Michael knows this business and knows the area well. He made the entire process so effortless for me that it allowed me to focus on my new job and on packing to move south!
