I have been doing real estate business with Mike Gleason in Chesapeake since 1996 including the buying and selling of two houses, multiple refinances and rental management when I lived and served overseas in Iceland and Japan. I recommend him to all of my Sailors and friends transferring into the Tidewater area because I know that he will provide them the same level of quality service, dedication to finding the "right" house and unparalleled knowledge of the area that he provided my wife and me. I would not use anyone else in the Tidewater area - he is simply the best.

As a first time homebuyer, we were lost, confused and totally inexperienced with the home buying process. Having Mike Gleason represent us and walk us through the entire process, to including arranging the financing, was comforting and relieved a great deal of stress. His professionalism, honesty and integrity made buying our first home a very efficient and worry free evolution. Now that it is time for us to transfer, I wouldn't have anyone but Mike represent us in the selling process. I would highly recommend his services to anyone buying or selling within the Hampton Roads area.

Buying a house is probably one of the most stressful experiences of my life, especially since we were first time buyers trying to buy when it was a "sellers" market. Mike was very patient and understanding and explained the process every step of the way. We were looking at a fixer upper and he made sure that this was something we really wanted to do. I knew at that moment he really was looking out for our best interests and not just a commission. I would definitely recommend him and use him again.

As first time home buyers we were looking for a Real Estate agent we could depend on to provide sheer professionalism. We had been referred to Mr. Gleason of Gleason & Associates Realty, Inc. We contacted him and we felt comfortable with him. He knew a lot about the area and found us the home we were looking for in no time. We bought our first home and we were proud of our investment.
When we decided to sell our home and relocate some years later we didn't think twice about who to call on to be our agent. Mr. Gleason once again helped us put our home on the market and purchase our second home. We always had the feeling that we made the right decision through the process of buying and selling homes with Mr. Gleason. We commend him on his professionalism and interpersonal skills. We still look forward to his monthly newsletters and yearly calendars and cards since 1996.

Last year I decided to sell my commercial rental property, but had no experience or contacts in the commercial real estate field. Mike Gleason was recommended as an experienced professional in the commercial real estate field. I contacted him and we quickly agreed on a very fair sales contract. Mike at first pursued some ideas that I had, but they did not pan out. When given a free hand Mike very quickly presented a contract that was acceptable. If you ever need an agent for commercial business property sales, I can enthusiastically recommend that you talk with Mike Gleason when selecting your agent.

If you are looking for someone in real estate to have your best interest at heart look no further than Michael Gleason. He sold me and my future wife's homes and with hard work within a short period of time found us our new home. We were most satisfied with the dealing all the way around. Michael smoothed out a lot of the bumps in the selling and buying process. We would recommend Michael to the most particular buyer.

You worked so hard to find mom the "right"house. What can I say? Thanks doesn't seem to be enough.

Let me state from the get go that my wife and I greatly appreciate all your dedication and knowledge in assisting us purchase our first home. Your vast experience and professionalism in the real estate field made the whole house buying experience less stressful for us.
The emails you forwarded me with the portfolios about the houses available to us in our price range were very helpful. Thank you again for all your service Mike, and I look forward to dealing with you in the future when our growing family will be in the market for a bigger house.

When I relocated from California to Virginia, Mike was recommended to me by my daughter. I was totally new to the real estate market on the East Coast. Mike was very patient with the novice and advised me on the potential investment return on the home I liked. He also had to negotiate with the developers' salespeople which was not always easy.
Mike continues to keep in contact although I have no financial or real estate plans at the moment. He is competent, professional and knowledgeable about Hampton Roads and financial programs. I would certainly have him represent me again.
