I can’t sing Mike’s praises enough. We connected with him through a random online inquiry and we realized quickly that we’d hit the jackpot. He’s an outstanding real estate agent but, more importantly, an outstanding person. He conducts himself with exceptional professionalism and integrity and my husband and I trust him implicitly! He was a bright spot during what can be a very stressful/taxing time.

Mike is a fabulous realtor and we often recommend him to other home buyers and sellers.
Mike is awesome! Extremely knowledgeable and helpful through the while home buying and selling process. Very patient with us when we needed to ask a million questions and have things explained even more f he already had explained them to us. Very accommodating with schedules.
We appreciated that Mike had a background in architecture and was able to give us advice on the houses we saw about possible red flags we would want to keep an eye out for or have inspected if we were to make an offer.
He was also accommodating to our crazy schedules.

Mike may not have been in this career as long as many other agents, but his knowledge and dedication are top notch.
Selling a house is not easy, but Mike Van Cleve made the experience terrific!

Best experience in a history of buying six homes.
So pleased that Mike will be the first person I call when the need arises again. I will recommend him without reservation.

Being first time home buyers,we had no idea what we were doing. Mike explained everything and made the experience painless, enjoyable and fun.
Mike was amazing while helping our older children find homes. We knew he would go above and beyond for us as well.
Mike made us feel like we were the most important people in the world. Always available and ready to help.
It’s not possible to put into words how grateful we are for having Mike as our realtor. He is an amazing person and so full of love for this community. We would recommend
him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Mike's reputation speaks for itself. His tenacity and passion for the West Main neighborhood is why I chose him to begin with. I knew I needed him in my corner if I was searching for a house there. Highly recommend!
Adam Gasper - Peoria
A man who wants to help, not make the bigger commission. Not a ton of clients so he can make sure the ones he has are taken care of. A solid dude in a world and process where you just want someone to trust.
Mike Van Cleve was an extremely valuable asset for my home sale and home buying experience. I was able to fully rely on him to set reasonable deadlines and price points with confidence in his knowledge and ability. He was also very helpful in inspecting homes that we viewed based on my preset expectations and needs. His partnership helped me find the lerfect house for my needs and helped me sell my house quickly and above my expected sales price. I would happily recommend Mike to anyone buying or selling a house!

Mike Van Cleve is a genuinely good person that worked with us over the course of a year to help us find our perfect home. He is always honest and never tried to sell us a home just to meet a quota. I absolutely love working with Mike and recommend him to everyone.
Mike was always willing to help with getting the house ready and show up for inspections and repairs, mike allows you to be hands off the property during the sale process. Mike was quick to respond and follow up.

There is no way my wife and I could have completed this home buyers experience without the wisdom and expertise of our agent, Mike Van Cleve. He was so knowledgeable of the Real estate industry, as well as, home designs and construction. We truly valued his input and insight. Thank you, once again, Mike!!!
Mark Fuller, Dunlap
Mike was incredibly helpful throughout the buying process. If I had an issue, Mike was the first guy I would reach out to. The home inspector he recommended, Cameron, was outstanding too.
Brandon, Creve Coeur
Mike was phenomenal to work with. He was super knowledgeable about the area, the market, and the conditions of the homes.
Mike was great to work with. He was very patient with me as it took over a year (including a break from looking) to find my home. He does not pressure you and really wants you to find the home of your dreams instead of just settling. He is very friendly and easy-going. It's very easy to get along with him.

This was a first time home purchase and I had no idea what I was doing. Not only did Mike walk me through every step of the process making sure I knew the pros and cons of every possible option, but he had a network of friendly knowledgeable subject matter experts from plumbers and contractors to lenders and insurance brokers. I feel working with Mike put me in the right house for me, at the right time, for the right price.
Matthew Level Metamora, IL
Mike was a great agent to work with. He walked us through every step of the process and was very clear and concise from the beginning. I would recommend Mike to anyone buying or selling a home.
Patrick Hogan, Peoria
Mike Van Cleve did a wonderful job for us in the process of purchasing our first home. We knew next to nothing about buying a home, and Mike was consistently patient and willing to explain the process. He also used his architectural knowledge to our benefit, often pointing out potentially costly or problematic issues in houses we saw, or alleviating concerns by explaining a potential remedy to an issue seen. He was committed to helping us find the perfect home, not the biggest commission. We are so happy with our experience, and will recommend him to all of our friends and family.

GOOD REALTOR---HONEST---FOLLOWED THRU WITH ALL MY QUESTIONS
I will recommend Mike highly
Carol Krei/414 E. corrington, Peoria, IL
Mike was highly recommended. Upon our first meeting, his passion, drive, insight and love for the neighborhood were evident.
Mike was also flexible with his schedule. He worked hard to make it possible for us to view properties during night and weekend hours. He was prompt in returning communication (text/ call/ e-mail), and did so efficiently.
I would recommend Mike Van Cleve to ANYONE who is looking in the area. He works hard for his clients. He strikes an impressive balance of knowing his craft/ advocating for his clients/ and maintaining an ethical perspective from first meeting to final closing.
He even made us cookies.
