Philadelphia homes for sale : Mike McCann
I worked with Mike and Pam Thistle to sell a South Philadelphia row home (Mike had actually been the listing agent when we purchased the home several years prior.) I was nervous because we had invested significant $ in improving the house during our time there and we needed to recoup that investment in the sale, but we also needed to sell quickly because we were under agreement on our next home. Mike and Pam came to our home and told us how the sale was likely to proceed and what we needed to do to meet our goals – no BS, no beating around the bush, no punches pulled. Every single piece of advice they gave turned out to be spot on. They were exceedingly timely and helpful in responding to our requests and questions. They never wavered in their plan. And things ended up going exactly as they said they would – we got our price, the timing worked out well, and there was never a point where I felt like I didnt know what was happening or what to expect. Can’t recommend Mike highly enough.
As a Realtor Mike gave me courteous and individualized attention while selling my home. He gave me good advice, gave recommendations and sold my property faster than I ever dreamed. His staff were accommodating and very professional. Thanks Mike!
Thanks again Mike-couldn’t have done it with anyone else. You’re a miracle worker!
Mike McCann did an absolutly fantastic job. We chose him because he puts the marketing $$$ in and has a good team. Achieved 100K over list … in 10 days. He also represented the Seller of the house we purchased and was able to get us to move our price up considerably even though our place had been on the market for 90 days. In that case he kept track of everyone that expressed any real interest and the moment he had our offer he contacted all those people and created a bidding war. At lot of agents would not put in that kind of time. We love our new home and have just about finished all the renovations and the yard.
Mike McCann provided me the smoothest and most pleasant home buying experience I could have ever imagined. His professionalism and especially his responsiveness are beyond compare. I had contacted him without really expecting that it would be possible to purchase the home I that I desperately wanted to be in. Well, lo and behold, 6 weeks to the day I originally contacted him, I was moving my kitchen table into my new house. It’s not only him either. Everyone I worked with that was recommended by him also displayed the same levels of responsiveness, professionalism and honest human concern. There truly is a reason his name is so well known. I cannot recommend him enough!!!!
We just wanted to pass along our appreciation of how you handled our property sale. Your professionalism really helped us get through a very emotional time. We will always think of you first with any future real estate needs, for us personally as well as family and friends.
On behalf of me and my family, THANK YOU, Mike McCann and Team. You were able to sell our home very quickly, for the price it deserved, and you made the entire process smooth and painless. In fact, you had a cash offer within 5 hours of our active MLS posting. My wife and I knew from the moment you presented your services to us we were partnering with an agency built on integrity, fidelity and quality in the highest regard. Acknowledgment of your hard work and dedication, especially with those middle-of-the-night emails and text messages, is very well deserved. You, sir, get the job done above and beyond expectations. It’s no wonder I’ve received the positive responses I did from the people that asked who sold my home. When I replied, “Mike McCann”, they said, “NO WONDER”. Should a client ever wish to speak to me directly about our experience, feel free to connect us.
I got the check and all is wonderful. I just wanted to thank you for your professional services and I, as always, will recommend you to all my friends and especially residents at Pier 5. With all the units for sale at Pier 3, I was worried how long mine would take to sell, but I think it was priced perfectly and showed well. As President of Pier 5 Condominium Association, I am going to place your link on our Pier 5 website in the near future.
Mike is a great landlord, not only do I rent from him, but my girlfriend has joined the club. I asked Mike to find a nice place for her, he and Julie both worked hard, got her a beautiful place with awesome light and energy, and he tore up the carpet and installed beautiful laminate flooring front to back on both 1st and 2nd floors. Beautiful place and he is always instantly available if you have an issue and need to contact him. I highly recommend him.
It was an absolute pleasure having Mike as my Realtor. He made the process of selling my house go very smoothly. I was 1200 miles away in Fl & selling a property in PA. Mike handles it all!!!! He’s on top of everything. He’s quick to answer the phone, respond to e-mails, & fixes any problems that come up. He’s definitely hands on!! He will “fight for your right”. I will certainly recommend him & his team to anyone I come across who wants to sell a house. Mike, I thank you.
Mike! The best there is in Philadelphia. He came through on everything during our sale, which was not a simple process! You always feel like his only client.
Mike just sold my second house in Queen Village. He is the best out there. Always returns emails and phone calls within an hour and is able to work through whatever issues are thrown his way.
It speaks volumes about a person who is at the top of there game and still cares so much about the “little people”. Mike took care of us like we were family. His tenacity and professionalism where unmatched. Every question, every doubt, every concern was met head on and resolved immediately. What is peace of mind worth to you? That’s what you get with Mike McCann. We love the guy! Thanks Mike.
Mike said he would get my house sold by the end of the spring market and he had it sold before the buds even showed on the trees. When there were issues with the appraisal, he immediately appealed with a strong argument that reversed the appraisers initial valuation and ultimately came in at full price. When other Realtors would have thrown in the towel and convinced us to cover the difference out of pocket, Mike went to bat for us and saved us $20K. A true professional who is as tenacious as they come and and all-around good guy. 5-stars all the way!! Thanks Mike and all of the McCann Team!!
Look no further than Mike McCann – he is certainly the man to be working with when selling your home. You feel as if he has no other clients. Everything he said when selling our home came to be….there is a reason why his name is everywhere in the city of Philadelphia. He is the BEST.
“Mike- I have to say of all the Brokers I deal with you are one of the most professional and courteous.”
My husband and I have known Mike McCann for just over ten years. He has bought and sold three homes for us in that time. Each experience has been wonderful…seamless and financially successful. We couldn’t imagine selling or buying a home in Philadelphia without him. Mike is not only exceptionally knowledgeable and professional, he is a kind and honest individual…happiest person we know!
I had met mike McCann in 2009 to discussed selling my house. So in June of 2013 when I finally decided to sell I called Mike. We met again and I was so impressed with his presentation that I knew he was the right “man” to handle the sale. The house had several issues to overcome such as it being an upside down house ( the kitchen and living space were on the third floor and my studio on the first). Mike and his team went to work. They advertised extensively, had weekly open houses and reported to me every comment and concern. Given the age of the house and its unique issues to deal with, I truly believe that Mike McCann and his unique team made the sale happen. Because of his expertise, experience,reputation, persistence and his relationships in the industry he was able to seamlessly overcome and resolve every issue. The house sold for what Mike said it would which was what I was hoping for. I made settlement on November 15, 2013. I truly believe that no other agent could have made the sale seem as smooth and effortless to me the seller. If you want the best to sell your property Mike McCann is the real “Real Estate Man”.
Working with Mike, Ryan and the entire McCann team has been a pleasurable experience. Mike’s knowledge of the city is second to none and his years of experience will give you the edge in all your real estate ventures. I was comfortable with the McCann real estate team from day one and they will take the stress out of the home buying/selling experience.I highly recommend the McCann team and personally wouldn’t use anyone else.
There s a reason for everything and Mike McCann is the reason Mom’s house recently sold. From the moment he entered the house for our first meeting we knew we were in good hands. Mike was gracious, informative, took the time to explain his course of action, answered all of our questions, and was extremely open and understanding of all Mom’s concerns. When he left he had already become ‘a part of our family’! Mike and his Team kept us informed of all appointments and always filtered back the necessary feedback from the prospective buyers. Calls and emails were answered almost immediately, but that’s Mike McCann and how he works and that’s how he cares for his clients. Mike is the reason Mom’s house sold in a little over 2 months just as he said it would the day we met him. And he is the reason anyone looking to buy or sell a property should contact him – Mike is knowledgeable, professional and simply the best ! To Mike and his Team we say Thank You.
This was an estate sale after the sudden death of my brother. It was an emotional time for me and my family. Mike McCann was a warm, caring professional who was sensitive to my needs and understood what I was feeling as he shared his personal family situation. I immediately had a strong connection with Mike. He and the team made this sale the easiest event that I have had to deal with since the loss of my brother. He took care of every detail and I trusted his advise as an expert in his field. When I move back into the city for my golden years, Mike will be the one to sell me my next home. I would highly recommend Mike and his team to anyone without reservation.
Mike McCann was fantastic. He was a great help as we prepared to put our house on the market, and he and his team did a great job creating an attractive listing. The house sold in a snap, and all negotiations were smooth and easy. Thanks Mike!
Mike would respond via email in less than 10 minutes whether it was 6:00 pm on a Tuesday, 8:00 am on a Saturday morning, or 10:00 pm on a Sunday night. He was always available to answer questions. His positive energy kept me going through even the challenging times! And he sold my home!
As a long-time licensed real estate agent myself (in NJ), I can be a pretty tough customer. My expectations are high, and I know how things “should” be done. So when we decided to sell our Passyunk Square property, I did my research and it looked like Mike McCann might be able to deliver the level of service I was looking for. And did he ever! Mike McCann exceeded my every expectation. He knows not only the real estate market but, perhaps more importantly, the wants, needs and aspirations of the buyers in that market. I researched the market myself beforehand, and I was thrilled to find that Mike and I were on the same page from day one. I wanted a sale within 30-60 days – maximum – at fair market value based on recent comps, and Mike’s recommendations for attracting the perfect buyer within that time frame were spot on. We went from listing the property to signed Purchase Agreement in hand in 7 days. Sellers, don’t hesitate – call Mike today! The sooner you call him, the faster your property will be sold.
Mike McCann was great. He was very professional. Had a solid marketing plan and team for support and was very considerate of our needs. We had tenants in the house we were selling, and they did a great job of working with them to respect their privacy as much as possible. Ultimately, Mike helped us sell our house quickly and at asking price. His whole team did a great job.
Mike McCann was very professional and extremely responsive. He used his experience in the neighborhood and knowledge of the market to develop a strategy that produced multiple full price offers within three days of listing. His advice was invaluable and his team made us feel certain we were in good hands. We would highly recommend Mike to anyone selling in Philly.
From the start,I was sure that Mike McCann would do the best job. It was good that he kept in touch at all times. Whenever I contacted him he got back fast with the answer…….even late in the evening! He and his team were always there. He took charge and kept me from worrying. You can have confidence in Mike and his team.
Mike McCann is awesome! He was so helpful and to the point. I am really glad we chose him to represent us. He is someone that genuinely cares about people and I am thankful I met him.
Mike McCann is an expert in center city real estate. He and his staff provided very prompt, courteous service, and Mike was always available when I had questions or concerns. Would highly recommend. Thanks Mike!
I personally had a very excellent experience working with the agent Mike McCann, which finally led to good sellers.
Right from the start, Mike McCann and his team impressed me with their efficient, professional manner – that inspired not only confidence, but generated the results I was looking for. Because of a helpful, knowledgeable, friendly staff my house was sold in no time. My experience with Mike McCann and his team confirmed for me that they are the best in the business!
I could see from my first meeting with Mike that he had the whole process down, including an aggressive array of publicity about our house. He helped us set a realistic price and we sold in about a month. He and his team were on top of things from the first day of the listing through settlement. He doesn’t waste time. Everything was handled in an efficient and professional manner.

I would highly recommend Mike McCann and his team if you are selling your property. He has an excellent understanding of all of Center City real estate, and also has an excellent sense of the current market. He will offer an aggressive but realistic suggestion for the initial asking price, but will always be open to the opinions and desires of his clients. He provides advice on the staging of the home and what needs to be done to make the best presentation to the buyer while respecting financial and other practical constraints. He employs various marketing strategies to bring traffic, and the seller is keep informed about every movement, good or bad. Mike responsiveness is unparalleled. If you don’t get a call back in an hour at most, your phone is probably dead. And at the end of the day, he knows how to close the deal and navigate throughout the settlement. What more do you need?
Mike McCann goes above and beyond what even the most demanding buyer could ask of a Realtor Mike helped us through a turbulent 6 months of real estate stress. It’s reassuring to see an agent that embraces technology so he’s readily available at all hours. Mike’s knowledge of Philadelphia real estate, and connection to resources and contractors is unrivaled. We greatly appreciate the referrals Mike provided, from contractors to mortgage vendors. If you follow his advice and recommendations, you’ll be sure to have a smooth and pleasant transaction. Additionally, Ryan McCann was involved in our transaction as well, and it’s very clear that he’s following in the right footsteps. We will only use the McCann team for future transactions, and highly recommend them to all friends and family.
In a nutshell Mike McCann is the best of the best. He provided white glove service to my husband and I from the first day we met him through the day he closed on our house. He was truthful about our list price, honest in his feedback through the process, great at negotiating…he even went to the closing so my husband and I didn’t have to take off work! But my favorite thing about Mike is his communication style. He must go to sleep with his blackberry. He got back to all of our email questions within minutes. He gave us reassurance and comfort through his constant communication and we always knew we were in great hands. Thanks Mike!!
I have been working with Mike McCann for over 10 years insofar as using him as my real estate agent to sell the properties I develop/build, as well as to search for vacant ground to develop. He always brings the highest level of professionalism to any task he sets out to accomplish and is efficient and 100% trustworthy. I can always count on him to come through. His experience and sharp mind plus street-wise common sense make for a perfect combination and I continue to utilize his services for these reasons. Sincerely, Tom Cohen TLC Real Estate Development
Dear Mike: This is just a note to thank you for your extremely valuable help in aiding me in selling my house at 400 Spruce Street. Over the years I have sold many homes in the Main Line, and I had Fox and Roach representing me at that time. However, I have never had a realtor as thoughtful, pleasant and knowledgeable as yourself. From the first day we met, you advised me that you would have my house sold within two months. You said it with a distinct voice of authority, and you were correct! It is one thing to have a realtor that has your house shown on various days during the week and weekend. It is entirely another thing when the realtor goes out of his way, such as you have done for BJ and myself. Your team is very impressive. It is my impression that your self confidence and your connections within the real estate market, as well as what I have written above, explains why you have such a remarkable reputation. I can assure you that if I have any of my associates within the University of Pennsylvania Health System looking for houses to buy or sell, you will be the man since you go that extra mile. I have nothing but fond memories of this experience. Your have my permission to show this letter to any potential buyers or sellers in your business. Warm Regards, R.

Matthew Weekes White President Whitehouses Inc. P O Box 2291 Philadelphia, PA 19103 17 June 2011 To Whom It May Concern: As a designer and general contractor, I have purchased and sold more than 35 houses in downtown Philadelphia in the past two decades. In the process, I have done business with more than a dozen Realtors. Mike McCann truly stands out from the crowd. Why? Because he is the best. My experience proves it. Mike’s knowledge goes beyond the general outline of a neighborhood to the specifics of virtually every street, giving him insight normally available only to longtime residents. He not only knows the general housing market better than anyone else, he also can read the nuances invisible to most others, an invaluable skill whether you want to buy or sell. And he is a genuinely nice, down-to-earth person – “good people,” as Philadelphians often say – who puts his clients’ interests first. I count Mike as a trusted adviser, and he plays an invaluable role in my business. He has found houses ideal for me that I would have never discovered on my own, and he has steered me away from deals with hidden problems. I would never buy or sell without Mike McCann’s advice. Knowledgeable. Trustworthy. Hard working. No one could hope for a better guide in the complex Philadelphia housing market than Mike McCann. Sincerely, Matthew W. White President Whitehouses Inc.
We met Mike McCann in 2001 and since then he has helped us buy/sell three different homes. He is warm, honest and hardworking. Mike’s knowledge of the real estate market is unparalleled. He uses his experience and resources to make sure his clients are happy and satisfied. We particularly appreciated Mike’s dedication to providing us personal attention. We can’t imagine working with anyone else! Jeong & Bill Duffy Queen Village Residents
It gives me great pleasure to recommend Mike McCann and his team to any prospective buyer or seller. Mike has been my sole agent for buying and selling properties for around 10 years. He has sold everything that I had offered for sale, and helped me buy everything that I wanted to buy. He has always delivered. Mike and his team have the energy and most important the experience to close a deal that might otherwise not happen. When he goes to work for you he takes it very seriously and is always available, returning calls promptly. His years of experience enable him to solve complex problems that arise in this business. I have purchased a number of investment properties for development and again Mike’s experience and perseverance have made a number of unlikely deals happen. Last year I purchased a vacant lot with Mike acting as my buying agent. I was the third potential buyer of that lot, two previous developers were unable to close on the purchase but Mike’s experience and dogged determination seen it to closing and now next month to the sale of a new house for me and another successful venture, thanks to Mike. Mike has to be the hardest working agent in this city and knows every block like the back of his hand. He is always working for you I’ve had emails and calls from him anytime from 6 am to 11 pm any day. I’ve called him at all times of the … Read more

Mike, we never expected you to be as involved in our sale as you have been. But given the hurdles we faced along the way, we were very fortunate to have you as our realtor! You really went above and beyond what anyone could ask of a realtor, from providing referrals to contractors, to helping expedite their work. Without your continued involvement, oversight and persistence, this sale would not have closed. You are the reason we crossed the finish line! Thank you, and your team, for all the countless things that were done to make our sale happen. We are extremely pleased and would strongly recommend you to anyone we know.
