We used Mihara and Associates for both buying and selling a house. They are highly professional and very knowledgeable of the Tampa Bay real estate market. They are great to work with. They answered all of our questions. They helped us price our home right so that it sold quickly and helped us find the home we wanted in a sellers market. We would go back to them again the next time we need to sell or buy a house and would highly recommend them to anyone else who needs to sell or buy a house.
