  • Zillow 5 Star Review  There aren't any actual words that can accurately describe our experience with Mike selling our home and buying another home within the span of 3 months. Mike came as a strong recommendation from our amazing home inspector. He was very attentive and fielded all of our ridiculous questions with patience and understanding. He never pushed us to bid on anything, and we never felt like he was just trying to make a sale (unlike previous experiences with other realtors). He continually kept us updated on things, and was always very responsive. The care and compassion shown throughout our experience would be something you would come to expect from a family member or a close friend. His knowledge and expertise really helped us to make the right decisions, and we ended up in an amazing home that was beyond what we originally expected.

    Zillow 5 Star Review  Michael helped us purchase our first home and could not have been more helpful. He put things into a relevant context, was punctual and prompt and really responsive to texts and calls, and explained a lot of things for us that we weren't aware of. He is very easy to talk to and is a clear...

    Zillow 5 Star Review  There’s not enough good things I can say about Michael Furino. As first time home buyers, going through the process of purchasing a home was very intimidating. There are so many moving parts to juggle, you can easily be overwhelmed. Fortunately, Michael made it where we hardly felt any of that pressure! From the very beginning, he made me and my wife feel confident that we will find the right house. Going to open houses and deciding on different towns was made easier because of his insight of the Long Island neighborhoods and overall knowledge of the real estate business. His network of contacts made it easy to find the services we needed to move forward in purchasing the property, there was no service we needed that he didn’t have a contact for. I highly recommend Mike as your realtor. He was great to work with and most importantly, he always made himself available when we needed it.

    Zillow 5 Star Review  Simply put, Mike's professionalism is unparalleled. Let me explain... My family has been in real estate for over 40 years. My mother, father, aunts, cousins have all had their RE licenses... Even I had my license for a few years. So, I've been around the industry my whole life. When my fiance...

    Zillow 5 Star Review  Since we were looking for a house in the peak COVID-craziness season (summer 2020), the house hunting process was stressful, to say the least. Thanks to Mike's great recommendations, help, and insight, though, the process felt manageable, too. We must have looked at over 30 houses with Mike, but he...

As first time home buyers, we needed a lot of guidance when making our purchase and Mike made our experience seamless.... We bought at the height of COVID and were looking to move out of the city and buy in the suburbs as soon as possible. Considering all of the challenges of buying during this time, his knowledge of the area, the market and purchasing as first time home buyers put our worries at ease. He was always available to answer our questions, gave us his undivided attention and listened to what our needs were. We found our home in the area we were hoping for and very happy with our purchase! You can't go wrong with Mike Furino as your real estate agent!read more

When buying a home, my wife and I were uneducated, from finding the perfect location to compromising on what matters.... However, Michael was very knowledgeable, patient, and personable. He guided us from step 1 to what seemed like step 9999. Without him, we couldn't have done this.read more

I got to know Mike after he came in highly recommended by several of my friends who ended up buying houses in Long... Island all within the last few years. I recently closed on a house and I could not recommend Mike enough. It was not easy finding a house during the pandemic but Mike was there to guide me in every step of the process. Mike is knowledgeable, very responsive and attentive. He works very hard to protect the best interest of his clients. He knows what he is doing and does it well. Thank you so much, Mike!!!read more

We have worked with Mike over the past year to find a rental property in our town.

Being a first time home buyer, my wife and I were very apprehensive about starting our home buying journey. Mike made... the process so fun and exciting for us. He is extremely knowledgeable about today’s market and knows what it takes to close a deal on a house. Most importantly, he understands that houses are not commodities- they’re your future.Mike’s professionalism, persistence, and consistency is how we closed and moved in to our forever home. It didn’t matter what questions we had or what time we called, he was always there to help. If I could give him 6 stars I would...we wouldn’t recommend anyone else other than Mike.read more

Michael brings three key characteristics to the table which were essential for us to have in a realtor as first time... buyers: patience, professionalism, and persistence. With his vast knowledge of the market, the Long Island area and his experience having many sales under his belt, Michael was able to provide the guidance that was needed in order for us to find the perfect home. He was always available and quick to respond which we really appreciated. He was always one step ahead of everyone involved. This gave us reassurance and eased our nerves during what could have been a very stressful experience. We knew Michael could and would handle any obstacle that we would be presented with in a timely and thorough manner, and he did. We looked at many houses with Michael and he kept us focused throughout the process and would notice important things about certain homes we saw that we would have otherwise missed, leading us to our forever home. He brings so much value and experience to the table and hiring him as our agent was by far the best decision we made. Thank you Michael for everything!read more

Michael was great. He really went above and beyond helping us find a house. Day or night he was helping us at each... step. We thought at times given the market right now we would never find anything. He stuck with us and gave us so many options and was not pushy at all. Michael made the process simple and easy for us from start to finish. We are so happy now in our home all thanks to Michael! He is very professional and kind, we recommend him to all of our friends.read more

Mike was the absolute best realtor that I have ever worked with in my life, and truly the reason we got the house of... our dreams. Mike was professional, organized, and attentive from the get-go. Whether we found a house or Mike sent us listings, Mike would quickly and efficiently setup a viewing. When picking a house, Mike was never pushy and never had his own agenda - he gave us the space to make the decision that worked best for our family, while being supportive throughout the process. As we got under contract, Mike yet again exceed our expectations, and went above and beyond. He was our go-to person for advice, recommended awesome inspectors, lawyers, etc. for the process, and checked in with us on a regular basis to make sure everything was going smoothly. Mike was truly the best and we couldn't have had a better home-buying experience with anyone but him!read more

When we began looking for our first home we knew we needed to partner with the right realtor, and Mike was the perfect... person for the job. We knew the process of buying our first home was going to be difficult, but Mike made it easy! He answered every question we had, was accommodating to our schedule (day and night!), was always available to help bounce idea’s off of, and, most importantly, made us feel comfortable during the highs & lows of the entire process. We only knew a little about the housing market which made us a bit nervous, but Mike’s in-depth knowledge really surpassed our expectations and made our decision that much easier when the time came. If you are looking for true professional with homegrown roots to make your home purchase a true pleasure, then look no further than Michael Furino.read more

Since we were looking for a house in the peak COVID-craziness season (summer 2020), the house hunting process was... stressful, to say the least. Thanks to Mike's great recommendations, help, and insight, though, the process felt manageable, too. We must have looked at over 30 houses with Mike, but he had so much patience — whether we didn't like something about a house or we were outbid with a higher offer. Thankfully, we have now found (bought and moved into!) our dream house, and couldn't have gotten here without Mike's help. From the beginning, he was kind, informative, and beyond helpful. Highly recommend working with him.read more

Michael came highly recommended from an insurance provider, the recommendation was spot on.Mike was professional,... responsive, expedient, and most of all had our best interests as his priority. He helped us avoid showings and neighborhoods that didn’t suit our desires for a home. He was organized and always made sure we got in to see what we were interested in along with providing the local knowledge of other neighborhoods that could meet our search needs.During the successful offer, contract, and closing process he was there every step and helped in final negotiations with our interest and future as his priority. He helped keep tabs on the seller, bank, and facilitated the purchase as efficiently as possible.Would recommend to anybody.Side note: very considerate and professional with all COVID Protocols as we started our search in June 2020read more

Incredible selling experience. Mike was always available to speak, talk me and my family through the process, gave... great tips and ideas on how to get the greatest return for money spent. He was proactive and creative during the Covid pandemic and was able to get more showings, both in person and virtual than any other property in the neighborhood. Thank you for everything Mike on providing a wonderful home sale experience.read more

As a attorney who has practiced law for over 35 years I have had many experiences with real estate brokers over the... years. In all that time I have never met such a consummate professional as Michael Furino. Unlike many brokers, Michael is a businessman who understands the needs and wants of his client and has devoted his professional career to making peoples house buying dreams and sales a reality. The industry is truly blessed to have Michael among its ranks.read more

Michael was an outstanding real estate broker. He helped us to find our dream home. He’s knowledgeable of many towns... and experienced. He listened and showed us homes that we actually felt were good for us! He was not only professional but helped after closing to let us know what in the new town would be good for our family and it was very helpful. I enjoyed working with him and would recommend him to anyone looking to purchase or sell their home. Specifically there was a ton of issues with the town permits prior to closing because of the closures during covid, and Michael took the initiative to help and get things done so we could close on time. If you’re in the market Michael is the best!read more
