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.
