When we decided to purchase property in Boulder County we were very fortunate to meet Michael Hughes. From the beginning of our relationship with him we were confident in his ability and dedication to find that which would meet our needs. Experience has shown us that Michael is professional, personable,very knowledgeable about the market and an expert in the field of real estate. He is a cut above any other agent that we have employed in the past. Now, nearly six years later, he still keeps in touch and offers assistance. Having purchased two properties with his help, we are delighted to highly recommend him.

My husband and I have bought and sold many houses, about 15, in our 40-year marriage. We have always used a professional real estate broker but we have never had a broker as good as Michael Hughes. Michael spent a lot of time getting to know us and what we thought we wanted in a house. Although he followed our suggestions, he also pushed the boundaries a little in order to “test” our ideas. This enabled all of us to really see what was important in our selection. Michael’s negotiating skills came through for us and we were able to purchase a house within our budget in a tough Boulder Market.

What distinguishes Michael Hughes from other realtors? Yes, he’s a knowledgeable, highly skilled, and motivated professional whose personal integrity is unquestioned. The difference is, though, that unlike others his edge is a well thought out marketing plan executed with the precision of a drillmaster. Michael created buzz and excitement around our property, making it stand out from the competition and resulting in multiple offers the same day the first two couples walked through it… and that was before it was officially on the market! Any realtor will tell you the highest recommendation is repeat business. We’ve bought and sold 3 properties with him over 14 months and all required small miracles to close. Thankfully, Michael, views challenges as opportunities and has the finesse to prevail gracefully. His number will be on speed dial when it’s time to sell our current home and he welcomes it! If you’re looking for a realtor capable of producing extraordinary results for your luxury property, even in challenging markets, then look no further than Michael Hughes!

Michael was informative, professional and sensitive... Extremely knowledgeable about the community and schools, and most of all he completely understood the task.
