Mike has helped my family with real estate transactions for over 30 years. His connections in the real estate market have helped to buy & sell homes for the best value. Mike has helped multiple family members find the right home for their current needs & also helps us think about the future with resale. Mike is more than a realtor to our family - he is a trusted adviser.
Listing our house with Mike will go down as one of the best decisions we made. Mike is very, very easy to work with and just a great guy. He always answered phone calls and texts diligently until the date of closing and after. He is a quintessential realtor. The Best!
I have had a pleasure to work with Mike on the purchase of my new home as well as selling my first house. He was always professional and willing to go the extra mile to help his customers. I never felt I was his client but someone of his own family. He is genuine and honestly takes care of his clients. I would highly recommend Mike and his agency and I would keep him as my resource!

He helped us buy our dream home and helped us sell it 26 years later. It’s hard to find a friend like this not to mention a realtor like this! Mike is the BEST!

My family and I are blessed to have connected with Mike. We started the process of selling our home in March, when Mike came to our home. This was our first time as sellers and we were certainly green. Mike carefully walked us through the process and provided a check list of items to complete in order for our home to sell. We carefully followed his suggestions to the letter and listed our home in late April. Within 9 days, we received a full price offer! After a quick negotiation post-inspection, the sale of our house was settled and we moved on towards find our dream house. Much like the selling process, Mike was in constant communication as we explored the 08822 zip code. Mike's advice and insights were proven correct each and every time. We were able to negotiate and close on our perfect house the same day as the sale of our existing home. What was in theory a stressful process was made much easier through Mike's patient counsel. We trusted Mike implicitly and that trust paid off. Mike is now an extended member of our family. We will be forever grateful for all he has done for our family. We recommend Mike without reservation. He is the best!

Mike was a great communicator and always returned messages right away. We went thru my towns inspection process and he even came with me to challenge them! Great knowledge of area and pricing.
Let me start by saying that I have known Mike for over 20 yrs. Have bought and sold multiple homes with Mike's expertise. Every experience has been the most professional type of representation you can ask for from not only from Mike himself, but the entire staff at Golden Key. When selling, Mike spends the time and resources necessary to display your home properly for optimum return. As a buyer his yrs of experience and knowledge of the industry stand alone. Thank You Bob & Diletta

Mike and his team has helped me numerous times. First time was with the purchase of my house 28 years ago. (which I still reside in and love) He was patient, new the market, understood what I needed. He provided great advise and assistance from searching to closing. Mike then help us sell our starter condo. Most recently, he sold my mom's home for a great price and gave great advise in getting it ready for market. Won't use any other realtor.

Mike helped us navigate through the purchase of our first home and then, eight years later, sell it. We had multiple full price offers on the first day on the market thanks to his professional photographer and amazing marketing skills. I would highly recommend Mike to anyone looking to buy or sell.
Mike, Just to let you know that hiring you to sell my house was one of my better ideas, it was a pleasure working with you. You are truly a professional of the old school, extremely helpful in setting the house up properly, advertising, and selling it in short time. In the process as I got to know, you you became a friend and always will re main that. Here are a few pictures of my new home.
Your friend Gerd

Mike was excellent to work with as our listing agent for the sale of a home we inherited. He is very knowledgeable regarding the local housing market. He did a great job setting expectations for us and making sure the process was smooth. We were remote, out of state, sellers so Mike's personal approach was re-assuring. We were very pleased with the entire process and results.

Mike Santini is one of the most honest, courteous realtors I have ever dealt with. I can only speak from my experience, he went above and beyond for me. I had a difficult situation and Mike made me feel it would all be fine. All he said was "Trust Me" which was not an easy task because I had a previous realtor that was taking advantage of my situation. Mike becomes personally involved, he became my friend, my protector and truly had my best interests at heart. I was a divorced mother with a home that was strapping me not only financially but, mentally and emotionally as well. When would have the occasional meltdown, Mike would say "stop worrying, let me do my job". It took some time but he was a man of his word and sold my home and then helped me find another rental. I would sometimes laugh because we would go look at a place and he would walk in and say "Oh no! This is not the place for you " and we would walk out. Who does that! Most realtors in my experience want the commission, not Mike, he wants what is best for his client. I still to this day reach out to him with questions and he is like talking to an old friend. Always there and always helpful. Mike Santini is far more than a broker/realtor, he is a king among men! (At least in my opinion)"

I recently had the pleasure of working with Michael Santini with the sale of my home - 86 Helms Mill Rd, Hackettstown NJ (he originally helped me successfully sell my townhome 8 years earlier). With his help and expertise, I was able to sell my home in a matter of a few months in a market that was saturated with other offers and options.

Mike is unbelievable! Made selling our home a breeze! Walked us through every step on what we needed to do to sell and it worked! He put our family needs and interest first! Knew exactly what we wanted in a new home and what we would love. Found the perfect home for us and perfect location. We are so happy and will be in our new home for a very long time! Mike is awesome...he's a part of our family!

Mike was referred to us by a trusted personal advisor, and we are very grateful for the referral. Mike was instrumental in advising my sister and me on preparing my deceased father's house for sale, and then in getting us the best possible price. Mike is extremely professional and respectful, and was wonderful to work with. We always felt confident in him, and that confidence paid off in a swift sale for for an excellent price! I highly recommend Mike, and will definitely use him again!

Dear Mike, It has truly been a pleasure working with you. We truly appriciate all the advice, guidance, and support that you have provided us over the years. Without your patience, we would not be where we are today (buying our very first home!)
Thank you, Dhaval & Purvi
Dear Mike, Considering we didn't know anything about the house buying process, we cannot believe how well this went!. Your patience with us, and your knowledge is truly amazing. The guidance, support and management through the whole process has been unbelievable-it is clear why you come on strong recommendation. Everyone from the seller, the appraiser through to the hime inspector speaks highly of you! We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone involved in selling or buying a house. It has been a pleasure working with you and sending time with you.
Kindest Regards, Louija and Leighron

Thank You Michael Santini, Mike, My family and I have to Thank you and all your staff for a job so very well done. When we decided to sell you helped us find the right house to buy and were able to price and sell our home during a tough market. Your ability to keep that house in the spot light with an open house every 2 to 3 weeks and staying tough with every realtor to find the right family to buy is what it took to sell. On the personal side you’re a real people person as well. As the market worsened you were able to keep my spirits high and always have a plan just in case. I didn't understand what you meant when you said, "We're in it together," but I do now and the together in teamwork makes your team priceless. I will recommend you to everyone I know that wants to sell or buy. Mike, you’ll never know how much you helped us to reach our goal. You’re a friend I’ll never forget.
Thank You, John Warne
Hi Mike, Just wanted to let you know that I have been thinking of you and Amy almost daily since the house closed. I have tried to find the right words and/or gestures to thank te two of you- especially you- for all of your hard work and SACRIFICE. I just can't seem to find the words! You were really fabulous and supportive and we can't thank you enough. We wish you all the best of luck in the future, especially in this very tough market! We have told everyone we know how GREAT you all are and that if they need a realtor in central Jersey, there is no question who they should call! I would LOVE to stop in and see you sometime soon...which office do you normally work out of? Tare Care!
All the best! Tom and Steph
Mike, You are such a wonderful, outstanding person!. We truly appreciate all you have done for us as a realtor and as a friend. Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness and kindness. You will be missed! If we ever inhabit NJ again, we'll be sure to call on your services.
Thanks again! Go RU! Sincerely Phil & Kelly
Hi Mike, I had all good intentions of e-mailing you once the house closed but got waylaid with a myriad of other things to do. Jack & I would like to thank you very much for the interest, concern and time you spent with us in the selling of the house @1727 W. Fourth St. I know it wasn't too easy working with Steve as he is really a procrastinator in Capital Letters and don't know how you would have done it without us being there so I'm glad we were. The fact that the house sold so quickly was amazing and you certainly are an awesome Realtor!!!! I doubt that I will ever go back to NJ so probably won't ever see you again but it was our pleasure to meet you. Keep up the good work.....
Sincerely, Naomi & Jack Osgood.
Mr. Santini came highly recommended to us by a family member. We were already working with another realtor but decided to take a chance on Mr. Santini and we are sure glad we did. He is genuine, very knowledgeable and actually cares about your interests. I appreciated every bit of advice he gave us. He walked us through everything and sold our house in 2 DAYS!! Within a weekend we had 3 offers and we chose one. From there, the entire process was smooth and seamless. If you are in the market for a home, you will be doing yourself an injustice by not going with Mike! Thank you so much for everything Mike!

I had a great experience with Mike. I had a complicated out of state sale and he basically held my hand and guided me through the process. Mike is very knowledgeable and having lived in the area he also knew a lot about the property. He was always prompt in all our interactions. I got way more.
When I started looking for a home, I used agents from two of the "big" companies. Unhappy with the service I received, I got a referral to Mike Santini at Golden Key. What a difference!! The agents at Golden Key are honest, down-to-earth people that truly care about their customers' needs. After all, a home is not a used car. A home the biggest purchase that one will ever make and a place to hang your hat and your heart! Mike understands that and isn't a "salesperson." He won't pressure a buyer into a purchase and doesn't hesitate pointing out the good and the bad of a potential purchase. Mike takes his time and his knowledge of real estate and applies it to finding the "right" home for his customers. I would highly recommend Golden Key and Mike Santini to any home buyer or seller. At Golden Key you will find a family business that treats its customers like family. You will not be disappointed!

Dear Mike, We can't thank you enough for all of your assistance and guidance as we relocated to NJ. Our house is awesome and we love Flemington! We're looking forward to putting your very thoughtful gift to good use when our new grill arrives tomorrow and would love to have you and your wife over for a BBQ some time soon.

Letter to Mike Santini, Broker/Owner Dear Mike, We wanted to thank you so much for helping us find our beautiful home. You did a great job for us and we truely appreciate everything. Thanks again an hope to see you at the Rutgers games.
Sincerely, Phil & Kelly
To: Mr. Santini, We just wanted to say thank you so much for all your help throughout the whole home buying process. You have been so kind, patient and helpful and we could not have done this without you. We hope that you stay in touch with us and we hope you know that we consider you as a friend and much more than a realtor. You really are a blessing to us. Thanks again!

Hi Mike, I just wanted to drop you a note to say hello and to thank you again for all the hard work you did getting my mother her condo. She is really settling in nicely and has met a number of the neighbors. She says they are all really nice, caring people and she feels very comfortable living in that community. As a matter of fact Terry (the woman who sold my mother the condo) invited her and the neighbor, Anna to dinner last night. My mother seemed pretty excited about it. She seems like a new person...much happier and more content and I owe a lot of that to you. I really think if it hadn't been for you and your experience, we may not have gotten that condo. She decided to try using the washer and dryer in the basement rather than convert the pantry in the kitchen back into a stackable washer/dryer closet and so far it seems to be going well. Everything is working out beautifully. My mother is getting to know her way around pretty well and it gives me peace of mind to know she's not far away. It also gives me an opportunity to see her regularly but yet have my own space. So thank you again for helping us both to start a new chapter in our lives.

Hey Mike! Was just thinking of you this morning! You were absolutely the BEST part of this entire experience and we are looking forward to working with you again next year when Melissa begins her home search in New Jersey. We know it will probably be in the Belle Mead area (close to Carrier Clinic where she works) and will be a condo, not a home, since she wouldn't be good with any type of maintenance! I heard from Robert one time since the closing and I did respond, but never heard back - do you know if they are okay and how things are going with them?
Kind regards, Barbara
Mike has always been very responsive and knowledgeable. He has handled many property sales for our family with great success. He knows what to do to your home to prepare it listing. He knows what is a reasonable listing price and offer.
Michael Thank you for all your help in selling Michael and Tami’s home in Somerset. Also, you provided expert guidance on the purchase of their new home in Martinsville. I believe they are very happy with their purchase and looking forward to making the house a home they will enjoy for years. My assistant in Hawaii forwarded to me the closing statement and a copy of the referral fee for Martinsville. I think you are a true professional and an asset to our Realtor community. If I can be of any assistance to you in the future, please let me know.
