Michael, I wanted to tell you how much we appreciated all the work you did for Shirley and myself. You made our purchase of buying our equity share in this hunting club very pleasant. When we inquired about it you answered all our questions we had. Then you took us to see the property and you let the property sell it's self. The best thing was you are not a pushy sales man you let us make up our minds. Unlike some salesman I have delt with in the past. But you were there through the whole time with answers to our questions and you gave us whatever information we needed.

“You are one of the hardest working people I know, Jesse. You were extremely flexible and a great help working around my crazy schedule. There were numerous nights that you were up late working on the sale of my house or texting me to let me know of anything that you had found out. Some people might be discouraged because of your age but you are so knowledgeable about the business and can help anyone get max dollar for their home. I couldn’t have thought of anyone better to help us sell our house and would choose to work with you again in a heartbeat! Austin Wells” Austin Wells “I recently purchased some land that was brokered by Michael Oswalt. I enjoyed working with Michael. He was pleasant, honest, fair and above board on all his dealings. He did everything that he said he would and did it in a timely fashion. It does not matter if you are buying or selling, if these are the qualities you desire in a land broker, I would highly recommend Michael Oswalt.” J. Walker

When my wife and I decided that we wanted to put some funds into non-paper assets, we decided on timber land. We contacted Tom Smith and met with him one evening. We knew nothing about this kind of investment and Tom patiently explained the ins and outs and how this sort of thing worked. We discussed our desires and Tom translated those into a specific type of property that we should be looking for, considering our budget. Because of our ages, we needed to find something that would be harvestable in a relatively short time. One thing you find out pretty quickly is that someone is willing to sell you a piece of timberland every hour of every day. If an agent or even an acquaintance finds out that you want timber, they will have something for you to go look at the next day. People kept asking me why I had not bought anything yet. They seemed to think it was like buying a car. You just go pick out what you want. Tom weeded out properties that did not fit our goals. We kissed a lot of frogs as we looked at different properties. They looked better on paper than they did in person. Eventually we found exactly the right piece at exactly the right price. There were a number of unforeseen difficulties in closing the deal, but Tom was right there every step of the way during the negotiating process and, with his help, we closed on the perfect investment. We could not be happier. The next time we want to buy or sell some property, Tom will be our man.

It is my absolute pleasure to recommend Michael Oswalt, Realtor. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Michael and came to know him as a valuable asset as I struggled to sell my home and acreage following the sudden death of my husband. He is honest, dependable, and incredibly hard working. Beyond that he is an impressive problem solver who is able to address complex issues with strategy, confidence and tenacity. He manages to foster positive discussions that result in positive results. Without a doubt I confidently recommend Michael Oswalt.
