Past Client Testimonials
-"Was it Really THAT easy?"
You truly made our first time home buying experience so enjoyable, I almost forgot we were buying a home, but more of a fun gathering where we got to narrow down our search with what we liked and disliked. You weren't lying when you said, "I have a feeling this is your home", and we couldn't be happier with that realtor instinct you have!
Your time and preparedness during the house hunt was so appreciative and not only did we look at homes, we learned about homes, which only helped us down the road when we found "the one!" You were so intuitive on what we wanted, where we were located and you weren't afraid to show us everything, because getting the full experience made the process enjoyable. We still scratch our heads going, "Was it really THAT easy??"
You made it a point to not only just be our realtor, but a friend and ally guiding us to our home, with a team recommended by you who did not disappoint! Between you, Lorna and Jim, we truly felt that we had hit the trifecta with our team. Not only did we have the best experience closing, but you accommodated our schedules and helped get us in our home despite some of the timing hurdles we threw at you! Just like your thoughtful gift, we will never forget this feeling of happiness of owning our first home and the fun experiences we had with you as our realtor finding us our perfect home.
Thank you again for your time and commitment to us and our home. You may have handed over the keys to our new home, but you are the key reason we found our home sweet home!
Thank you again!
All our best,
-Robin & KJ Surgent, Hamilton, NJ
-To Anyone Considering Which Realtor to Use
"It is with great privilege that I address you on behalf of Michael Carney. I have recently had the pleasure of working with Michael since January, 2008. Across my 18 year career in sales & recruiting, Michael is the most knowledgeable and skilled professional with whom I’ve worked.
Michael is an independent, self directed person who is able to communicate effectively and meet even the most demanding challenges. During the past 6 months, he has gone above and beyond the call of duty to make the closing come to fruition smoothly.
While his on the job performance has been nothing less than stellar, Michael has also become like a family member to my brothers and me. He has extended himself beyond his duty & truly shines as a person.
It is with great pleasure that I write to you in recommendation of Michael Carney. He is an honest, caring individual who will make an extremely valuable asset in any Real Estate transaction.
- Kerin Crofton, Westampton NJ
"We were extremely satisfied with Mike Carney's service as our Realtor. Mike was on top of any problems that arose during our dealings. He answered all of our questions and addressed all of our concerns in a timely manner. Our transaction was handled in a professional manor and we were happy to have Mike as our Realtor for both the sale of our old home, as well as the purchase of our existing home.
We were extremely satisfied with the mortgage company as well as the home inspector that Mike referred us to. Both were professional and a pleasure to work with. We don't have much to add, the whole experience was as smooth as possible thanks to Mike and his referrals."
- Kari Gross & Mark Wudarski, Burlington Twp NJ
Thank you for all that you did to have my home sold. Who would think in today's market that I would have gotten full list price plus some for the sale. It could not have gone more smoothly at closing. Not to mention, Mike, how satisfied I was with all of your recommendations. The painters did a great job. As for Tina, the attorney... I felt she was top notched. Again, Mike, thanks much. You truly are THE BEST."
- Toni Albiez, Robbinsville NJ
-It was like “one stop shopping”
Thank you for being so good at what you do.
Wow, I could not believe the way you worked the entire real estate transaction. From the minute you walked into my home things began to happen!! It was like “one stop shopping” with the team you provided to get everything complete.
It was evident that you had endless interest and energy in getting things done so that my home “met your standards” and was ready to show. The designer you use provided a room-to-room report of what she suggested I do to show my home at its best!
Your hard work and determination proved to be a success! My home sold after seven days on the market.
Next was finding me a home that suited my needs and wants. You did not disappoint me at all with the numerous homes you chose for me to view. With your knowledge and suggestions of different locations, I came upon my dream home in no time.
How can I say “thanks” for the great deal I got on my new home. All because of you and your knowledge and dedication to real estate, did I close in a timely manner and feeling like I got the best “deal” ever!!
Thank you Mike!!! Your name will certainly be referred to everyone I know.
- Betty McRoberts, Columbus NJ
-Gets things done the right way at the right time
I want to thank you very much for all your help in the recent purchase of our new home. Being a first time home buyer makes it really confusing for people like me out there to understand the whole process and take care of everything, but with your home buying packet and great discussions and tips, it all turned out to be so easy. Your experience, thorough knowledge and professional handling of all matters were really commendable. I had never thought that home buying would be so easy, but having you on our side, and available virtually 24/7 in times of need and whenever questions arose, made it all a very smooth and pleasurable experience. I really appreciate all your hard work and dedication and would certainly recommend you to anybody who is looking to buy a house since you are the one person out there who understands the needs of the client and gets things done the right way at the right time. Thank you once again.

Very impressed with Michael's negotiating skills
We were very satisfied with the service we received from you both during our home search and throughout the buying process. You were particularly helpful with resolving the inspection issues, and we felt that you went above and beyond by setting up appointments with vendors for us. We were very happy with the building inspector and the mortgage company you referred us to, and we were also very impressed with your negotiating skills. We really feel that you got us the best price possible on our home and that we would not have made out as well without your expertise in the negotiations.
Thanks again for all your help!! "
- Gwen & Paul Matusek, Florence NJ
Mike had our best interest at heart.
"I personally would like to thank you for your patience and professionalism…it means a lot. Wanda and I really feel as though you have our best interest at heart.

-Exceeded my greatest hopes...
Better than well. This move has exceeded my greatest hopes, and the irises LOVE it!!!
- Howard Bushnell, Burlington Twp NJ
-With you every step of the way!
When the sale of homes had literally bottomed, you came up with a buyer at a very fair price. When it appeared the sale would be held up for weeks because of inspection deficiencies, you resolved them all in a couple of days. When I needed help with an attorney, the TV, the piano, and decorating, (even putting out the garbage for me) once again you were there. Both Toni and I continue to tell Mike Carney stories to our friends. If your in the market to buy or sell a home, then clearly, you can be sure Mike Carney will be "WITH YOU EVERY STEP OF THE WAY".
- Don Aquilla, Columbus NJ
-There are realtors, and then there is Mike!
"There are realtors, and then there is Mike! Mike was never actually my realtor. He met me at an open house in Bordentown and with his friendly charm, he gave me every bit of information that anyone looking for a house could need, whether it related to a house he was selling or not. He also gave me a book with important information about the town including things to do. He was very friendly and encouraged me to feel free to call him with any questions I may have.
It turns out Mike is actually a neighbor in my community. I have called him so many times for information and help, and each time he has offered it without any expectations. He has answered my basic homeowner questions, and even helped me to settle in to my new home.
My experience with Mike Carney qualifies him as a good human being. He seems to be one of those very few real estate agents who are fully dedicated to helping people regardless of his own personal interest or gain. I am sure these qualities make him a great realtor, who makes a difference.
Thanks a lot Mike.

-Patience & Honesty
"We appreciate your time, patience, and honesty and are glad that we chose you as our realtor."
- John & MariaElena Albiez, Medford NJ
Just a short note to say “Thank You” for the outstanding job you did in selling my condo.
My condo needed a lot of work to make it appealing to the buyer. In no time you had your team come forward and transform the unit into a showcase. Suzanne was as nice as can be and worked so well with you. George and his crew put a lot of work into the condo.
The proof was in the pudding when one of the first lookers purchased the property. I was sure it would take time but with your knowledge and salesmanship, the unit sold in record time.
I understand from my niece Betty, that much more energy than I could conceive went into the sale of my condo. She spoke of your constant interest, involvement and wheeling and dealing to keep things moving toward a closing date. I thank you sincerely for your work. Betty said you had her going to Beverly so that you had someone present to oversee what was done. You’re a “hands on” person Mike. Keep up the great work!
Thank you again."
- Mary C. Sconza, Columbus NJ
-Absolutely the best agent we could hope for...
Thank you for helping us in the sale of our home. We are really impressed. You are absolutely the best agent we could hope for.
You were always very thorough, always on top of things and very professional in how you handled our difficult transaction. You gave a new meaning to the word service.
We will definitely recommend you to family and friends. We wouldn't trust them with anybody else.
We wish you luck in all your future transactions!"
- Jason & Kim Weigand
"Again. you did an amazing job!!
We are all grateful for your hard work and all the many extra tasks you took on.
I'm very pleased to have put this behind me although it was hard to say goodbye to the home where my dad lived for 23 years.
I do hope to see you and treat you to dinner one day soon.
All the Best"
- Brian Crofton, Westampton NJ
"I just wanted to drop you this note to thank you for all of your efforts to make this sale a done deal. Never dealing with a short sale before, I surely didn’t know what to expect. You stayed dedicated and focused during the entire process when both Sheryl and I were ready to through in the towel. Please feel free to use me as a reference for any future clients, and when I am in the market for real estate again I will surely ;look forward to using you again. Again, I cannot thank you enough for all you did."
-Anyone thinking about using Mike as your Realtor
"When Michael Carney says he's "with you every step of the way", this is no simple tagline on his business card or idle promise he makes to his clients. From day one, Mike was right there with us, trekking through the streets of Philadelphia in 100+ degree weather to help us find our home, following up with properties we were interested in and coming back with great suggestions based on what we were looking for. As first-time buyers, he was there to ask the questions we didn't know to ask, to point out things to look out for in everything from the electrical systems to second-floor layouts And when we finally found our dream home, Mike worked hard to get us the best price we could, provided contacts for the inspections and the various insurances we required, and did everything he could to ensure closing went off without a hitch.
Michael Carney brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table combined with a genuine interest in his clients. He works tirelessly to make sure you're not just happy with your purchase, but well-informed about every aspect of your new home and property. From start to finish, not a day went by that we felt like we were anything less than his top priority. Mike displays a level of efficiency and professionalism rarely seen in the field, and personal and amicable customer service that's gotten hard to find in this day and age. I can't imagine looking to anyone else for our real estate needs.
- Raoul & Courtney Caes
"I would personally like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the ease of selling my home. As you are aware, I interviewed five realtors and knew you were the one to sell my house. You went over and above my expectations, especially those beautiful brochures.
You are a very special person who has tremendous experience, thorough knowledge and professionalism of handling all matters. Did I mention honest too!
I was really impressed when you listed my house for what it was really worth and really had to work to sell it. Never once did I hear you say, “You have to lower it! “ Instead you brought the most people through and within two months it was sold.
You are amazing and I have told many people about you and what an outstanding job you did. I would highly recommend you to others. In fact, I’m running out of cards!
Thank you for all your help. It was very much appreciated.
- Cheryl Crist

He answered all of our questions and addressed all of our concerns in a timely manner.

-To Whom it May Concern
"Mike took the time to understand what I was looking for in a home.
His knowledge of the real estate marketplace and savvy negotiating skills helped me get a great price. Also, Mike even got the appliances and window treatments included (when they were not originally included). He aptly handled the appraisal and inspection issues that came up, saving me thousands.
I highly recommend Mike to anyone looking to buy a home.
- Bill Robinson
"I appreciate your help again in finding an appraiser. Everything worked out fine as a result. In saying again, I am relating to the sale of 1 Fireside, back in January. When the sale of homes had literally bottomed, you came up with a buyer at a very fair price. When it appeared the sale would be held up for weeks because of inspection deficiencies, you resolved them all in a couple of days. When I needed help with an attorney, the TV, the piano, and decorating, (even putting out the garbage for me) once again you were there. Both Toni and I continue to tell Mike Carney stories to our friends. If your in the market to buy or sell a home, then clearly, you can be sure Mike Carney will be "WITH YOU EVERY STEP OF THE WAY"."
