Experience and Knowledge Do Matter
As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need a team of professionals who know this area inside and out! We can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home. The Lavoy Team members are dedicated to work with you from the beginning search right down to closing day, and beyond.
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, hire and supervise a professional photographer/videographer, help with staging your home to show well, get qualified prospective buyers to the home, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. We can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, maximizing online marketing assets, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
"Let’s start with Mike knowing exactly what my family needed showing us only 3 houses before we found our home. Mike is very passionate and true to his word. Highly recommend Mike LaVoy to anyone looking for an A+++++ Realtor. Thanks for making our home buying experience smooth. "
-Tom Jeffery , Client
"I highly recommend Mike Lavoy and his team. Mike listed our home in Cheval. Most of the time when a listing agent list a home, you will never see them again. But not Mike, he was there for every showing pointing out all extras. There was a contract within a short period. He or his team was there for us every step of the way and made this transaction so easy. Mike was totally professional and fair. We highly recommend Mike Lavoy and his team!!!! He is the best!!!"

"Mike LaVoy has been a HUGE help to us this year when researching & purchasing a beach property. He patiently showed us many different properties and as we changed our search locations, he remained positive, patient and helpful. He helped us to look “ outside the box” at other properties we would not have initially considered. By keeping a professional, logical perspective he helped keep us “on track” for what we wanted and really helped us to get a better property for the money we spent! Mike was always available & immediately responsive when we had a question or needed to find out some info. We felt like we were his “only” clients, although we know that was not the case! We are really happy with our new beachfront condo! If we ever need to move again, Mike LaVoy will be our first choice in real estate agents!"
-Mr. & Mrs. Steve & Lisa Kasson, Client
"Can't believe how accommodating and helpful Mike has been. The process is so easy and he makes it enjoyable as well."
-Renee C, Client
"I have known and worked with Mike for several years when he first helped me with our home after my husband died. He was very attentive during the sale of the previous house and instrumental in the purchase of my current home. Mike has always told me what his professional opinion was, not just what I wanted to hear."
-Shirley L, Client
"Thanks Mike! Your knowledge and patience has been very well appreciated! I'd highly recommend your services! Class act!"
-Eric & Michelle C, Client
"Mike was extremely responsive, via phone, text email and in person. He acted quickly and moved the process along without any issues. We felt he gave us personal attention and had our best interests in mind. Most importantly, he assisted us in buying our dream lake house and selling our current home. Thanks, Mike!"
-Monica M, Client
"Mike guided me through all of the aspects of selling my home thus giving me a stress-free experience. This was the first time I had sold a property by myself. Mike patiently answered all my questions promptly and cheerfully. His professional advice helped make the entire process from listing to close speedy and problem free! I have recommended Mike to several of my friends."
-Jerilyn B, Client
"My wife and I cannot say enough about Mike LaVoy. We were looking to move back to the Carrollwood area, but had certain specifics in mind. When we were looking for a buyer's agent, we turned to him. We met up with him again over lunch. We found him to be relaxed, but in the subsequent afternoon spent looking at properties, it became clear that Mike had great strengths for someone needing help to find their home. Don't let the easy sense of humor distract you from the true work and knowledge Mike has/puts in for you. He knows the area well and in detail. He knows strengths and weaknesses of the various area neighborhoods including HOAs, trends and other intangibles beyond the regular agents' knowledge of schools, and prices. We enjoyed our time with him while easily discussing serious issues and concerns about properties we were considering. The MOST IMPORTANT thing for us was that Mike was ready to serve "
-Paul B, Client
"Mike, Erin and I want to thank you for making the purchase of our home go so smoothly. We appreciate your professionalism in guiding us through the process."
