When it came time for us to downsize from our uptown home, Middleton provided a network of support which made the project possible. He helped us obtain expert advice on the improvements which would make the house more saleable, directed us to reliable tradesmen who did the work for us, and put together a sophisticated and effective marketing program. The result was that in 24 hours, we had four bids and sold the house for $10,000 more than the asking price. Now we are happily settled in a lovely apartment which Middleton helped us find. We are pleased to recommend him without reservation.
As my neighbors reminded me continuously, choosing you as my agent was the best decision I could have made. I want to thank you and your team for holding my hand during this process.
I didn’t anticipate that selling a property could be so stressful and full of hurdles. You helped me tremendously being friendly, competent, firm but never pushy.
Now that it’s all over I hope we can stay in touch as friends. Hope to see you soon in Italy and toast together with a chilly glass of prosecco.
My best regards,
From A Military Client
I had to sell a very grand but unusual house after I had already moved out of state. For a period of two years, the house had been listed with two other agents, and I had to fly in and out every other month to clean and maintain the house, and work on the yard. It was incredibly stressful.
That changed the moment I met Middie.
He did an amazing job by immediately organizing a maintenance schedule, suggesting excellent recommendations to improve the home’s appearance, and implementing a marketing strategy to get it sold. The house was always perfect and I was able to stop making trips to check on it. If anything broke or needed to be dealt with, he let me know immediately and he has a whole crew of repair and maintenance people who took care of anything that came up. They all did a great job! The landscaping was kept up, gutters cleaned, fences repaired, everything the house needed to stay beautiful. Best of all, zero worries!
Middleton O’Malley and his team did a wonderful job, and sold my house. My only regret was that I didn’t list with Middie, first.
From a military client
Middie was amazing throughout my home buying process. He leaped into action and helped me in every way through a very demanding transition coming from out of state to New Orleans, and made an otherwise stressful process, easy. He is very thorough and knowledgeable in his profession and was honest and upfront with any information whether good or bad. I greatly appreciated this as it helped me make better and informed decisions. He has impressive market knowledge, high integrity, an outstanding work ethic, and a devotion to client satisfaction. He was very demanding of himself to get the best negotiations in my best interest and for that I would recommend him to anyone looking for a home in the local area.
Middie made our home dreams come true, and we are to this day firmly convinced that those dreams never would have been a reality without Middleton O’Malley. In what had to be one of the most complicated and delicate real estate transactions, Middie managed to meet all of the needs of three separate clients, and he did so with the highest ethical standards and professionalism. One client was looking to sell a house, another client was looking to buy a house, and our family was looking to do both, Middie made it all happen by carefully isolating the desires and interests of each client in order to ensure that every one of us left the transaction feeling like winners. He made what could have been a miserable and disappointing endeavor a great success, and we regularly toast him for his heroic efforts as we enjoy the beautiful new home that we never thought we would get!
I just wanted to acknowledge what an outstanding job Middleton O’Malley did in selling our house. He only had it on the market for two days before we received several offers, all above the asking price. The final offer was more than 10k above what we had expected to get. It was a real pleasure working with Middleton; he made a potentially stressful event an truly enjoyable experience.
As a newcomer and first-time homebuyer in New Orleans, a friend recommended Middie to help in my house hunt in a competitive and tough buyer’s market. And what a fortunate and fine recommendation it turned out to be.
Middie quickly analyzed and understood what I was looking for in a second home. He found the perfect uptown cottage at the right price in the right location and then orchestrated a very complex transaction with other clients.
The negotiations and closings went so smoothly and amicably that we sellers and buyers gathered at a local bistro to toast him for representing us with honesty, professionalism, discretion, and personal attention. We all agreed it would not have happened so seamlessly without him. Well done.
We both really appreciate all of the work and effort you put in on getting our house sold. It is a bit of a unique house; without your help we could not have found the couple who bought it.
All the best, and thank you again for your efforts.
Working with you on the sale of our French Quarter condo project was nothing short of astonishing. We thoroughly did our homework prior to selecting your services; credentials, expertise and demeanor; and you were the right combination for us. Your experience with historical properties and your “Green” designation put you in a category all of your own. We look forward to a long-term pleasant relationship with you.
We highly recommend Middleton O’Malley for your Real Estate needs!
What can I say about Middleton O’Malley? If you are planning to buy or sell a property in the New Orleans metropolitan area, you definitely want Middleton O’Malley on your side…
I could probably write a short book on his attributes, integrity, and abilities as a Realtor. I’ll try to sum it up in something less: From the very start, Middie dove into the marketing and sale of our home. He is excellent at marketing, defining the market and targeting it effectively.
When the deal almost blew up at the last minute (literally two hours before closing), Middle stepped in and negotiated a settlement agreeable to all parties. After the closing, the buyer got cold feet and tried to cancel the deal, but Middle was right there handling things. Because of the issues involved, we had to put a lot of money into escrow for repairs and, even thought the sale was finished and commission was paid, Middle still hung in there and followed through with the escrow to see that we got the maximum return of our money.
Middie is the kind of Realtor everyone hopes for: He works hard, is always available, knows what he is doing, keeps on top of things, and follows through to the end.
From A First Time Buyer
Middleton O’Malley, simply put, is the realtor above all others. He is extremely knowledgeable, sincere, and constantly looking out for his clients. He works around the clock for you, listening to your needs, wants, and desires and works extremely hard to meet your criteria. His knowledge goes way beyond that of Reality, it also includes a vast array of other professionals to help you in any way shape or form. He will stand up for you, fight for you, as well as, be open and honest about every situation. During my time with Middleton, I not only had an exceptional realtor, but also a friend. I trusted his opinion, and sought his advice on a regular basis (which in all honestly was spot on). I highly recommend Middleton O’Malley, as he is an amazing realtor, a great person, honest and trustworthy. I could not have asked for a better experience.
I hold Middie in the highest regards and would recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone. He sold a very unsellable property I had acquired in ONE day! Not only that, he received an offer that was $10,000 over the asking price. After speaking with Middie the first time, he immediately put my mind at ease about the selling process, since I was a first time seller. He explained his selling and marketing strategies in very easy to understand terms. After that initial consultation, I trusted him implicitly. He did exactly what he said, and had the property listed in a few days. I anticipated that selling this property was going to be a long drawn out and unpleasant process but Middie made it a simple and stress free. Middie is a master realtor, as well as a very kind and understanding person.
It is a pleasure for me to tell anyone who asks what a great experience it was to have you as my Realtor in the sale of a historically important, French Quarter house, on Burgundy Street. I apologize for sending you an email rather than a formal letter, but I send you all my best.
We are in our dream home, in our dream neighborhood. We would not be here without the support and guidance of Middleton O’Malley. His superb realtor team is an extraordinary combination of saints and warriors.
Middie has a strong understanding of the city, neighborhoods, types of homes, and housing construction, their individual strengths combine in a way that feels like you are being supported by more than two people.
Middie is a very strong negotiator with the experience and confidence to know when to steer us away from poor choices. As a long-established resident of New Orleans and a homeowner and investor himself, he has a vetted list of quality service vendors for use during inspection and post-sale.
He has tremendous patience, but also the ability to move on when the client feels stuck.
Spending time with Middie is a joy — like you are part of an adventure where he is guiding you and keeping you safe. And laughing. And eating!
Middie is differentiated by his top notch communications skills, experience, and service to his clients! We especially recommend him for relocations as Middie was a terrific resource for all things New Orleans.
Middie was the listing agent for our beautiful Garden District home, just off St. Charles Ave., we purchased when we relocated to New Orleans. We were so impressed by his commitment to his clients and his ability to facilitate a smooth and quick close.
Throughout the entire process, from open house to post close, Middie was engaged, extremely responsive, and available to answer questions and resolve any issues that cropped up.
When asked if he had received good service, the buyer of this house replied with the following statement.
“Your service has been so good that I’d ask you to be godfather to my children, were I Catholic. Have also tried to convey that (in slightly different terms) to the referral service, for whatever it’s worth.”
Congratulations on a terrific sale. Philip and I are thrilled with the outcome of our engagement with you. Thank you so much for all of the hard work you put into making our sale such a successful one. You priced our house ambitiously and we sold for more than we imagined was possible, and certainly much more than what we paid just two years ago. Your counsel was invaluable with staging, navigating a tough market, and introducing our home to potential buyers. We were grateful that you had us under contract so quickly. Good luck in all of your endeavors. If ever we move back to the region, we’ll call you first!
Middie was more than a highly competent professional with great contacts and resources. He took the time to get to know us and what we were looking for in a home. Middie quickly understood our needs and was a joy to spend time with. We have recommended him to all our friends and they have had the same great experiences. When we were ready to buy a rental investment property, we went back to Middie and he shared excellent advice and knowledge on investment properties.
Middie found my perfect home. Middie represented me as a buyer in a steadfast search for a home that met all my desires. During negotiations he was responsive, knowledgeable and demonstrated excellence in his professional recommendations. Middie is a stellar buyer’s advocate. He made me feel as though I was his most important client.
