What Our Clients Say

Mike and Monica and their team are outstanding, dependable, honest and honorable. There is a chance he is part magicia and as well, because no one expected our house to sell so quickly or for the price we wanted!

Monica helped us find the perfect lakefront estate and was amazing in helping us negotiate a deal we felt was fair for all parties.  We highly recommend Derenthal-Cook.

Without hesitation, I can refer Mike as a true professional who will make the sale of your home his top priority.

I can say with full confidence that Mike would treat anyone as well as he has me and my family.
