First time buyer
Attorney Watkins was very knowledgeable and extremely funny at the closing. We had to wait for the money from my bank to arrive but he stayed to ensure we received our keys and helped pass the time with funny stories.

Best Real Estate Lawyer
During the process of selling my home, we used Michael Watkins and his firm Watkins Legal Group. They are extremely knowledgeable and easy to work with. Michael takes the time to fully ensure that you are aware of every detail of the process. So information but also an easy going person who you will have no problems getting along with. Always has the best interest of his clients.

Fantastic attorney!
Michael was highly recommended by our loan officer and our realtor, so we hired him to handle our home sale and our new home purchase. Every question we had was not only answered and Michael made us feel comfortable every step of the way. He is so calm and personable, we felt like we were old friends. We cannot recommend him enough - he is a rare find! You'll be in good hands with him.

One of the Best Lawyers Around
I have utilized Michael when I sold my own home as well as referred him to many clients of mine as I am a realtor. As a realtor you want to feel confident that you are putting your clients in good hands. Michael is thorough and always takes his time answering all your questions. Myself nor my clients have never felt rushed. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an excellent real estate attorney.

ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE!!
Let's be honest... buying or selling a home can be beyond stressful! Michael was such a breath of fresh air!! We had absolutely no questions that went unanswered. He is not only knowledgeable and extremely professional, but also truly an amazing man in general. He walked me through every single thing step by step. He was completely upfront about every little detail in the process. Out of our whole experience he was the highlight. There aren't many lawyers left in this world that you can say this about! Hire him! You'll thank yourself in the end! We couldn't be more grateful!!

The best there is!!
My sister and I hired Michael for the sale of our home and he was nothing short of amazing. He is professional, knowledgeable and available. He handheld us through every step of the transaction and answered every question we had with confidence. I have since referred him to numerous friends and family and will continue to when any opportunity arises. Michael comes highly recommended!!

Recently, I have had Michael on many of my Real Estate purchase transactions. I am impressed with not only his professional acumen, but his sincere care for his clients. I close many purchase deals every year in NE Illinois. I refer Michael when I can without any reservation. He does a great job!

Great job!!!
I sold my home for sale by owner and had no idea what I was really doing. Michael Kyle helped me through the process and always let me know what to expect next. I was so happy with Michael Kyle that I referred him to my brother for the purchase of his first home.

helpful and efficient
We hired Michael Watkins to help us sell our home and purchase a new home. Michael was easily accessible by both phone and email, usually responding within minutes. Throughout the buying/selling process I had many questions and I was never made to feel like an inconvenience. Michael has an easy-going and approachable personality and he was able to work well with us as well as our buyer's and seller's attorneys. When issues came up at the inspection of a house we planned to buy, Michael spent a considerable amount of time negotiating with the seller's attorney and kept us updated on everything that was discussed. When we ultimately decided to cancel that contract, Michael reassured us that we were doing the right thing and that we would find a better home. Michael represented us at the closing of our former home and kept us updated before/during/after that process so we knew everything was moving along smoothly. When we closed on the home we were buying, Michael sat with us and explained, in plain terms, what we were signing. I was so thankful that we had Michael representing us and I wouldn't hesitate to hire him again in the future.

Michael Watkins
Mike Watkins was great to work for. He knew everything he was talking about and took the time to explain it all! As a first time home buyer it was very frustrating running across people who didn't want to sit there and explain everything in depth, but mike took time out of his busy day to help me and walk me through everything and making sure everything I paid for and signed for made sense.

Offered Outstanding Service!
Michael has gone above the call of duty to help my traffic court case. He has shown up for me in court when i was unable to and attested on my behalf without additional charges. He kept in good communication with me in regards to the status of my case and what needed to be done.

Excellent & Informative!
Michael Watkins was referred to me by my realtor and I couldn't have been any more satisfied with his work! He was extremely attentive & thorough with the entire process. Being a new homebuyer had me extremely nervous and not too aware of what everything meant. He was able to explain things in a way that made it so much easier for me to understand. He is also one of the most down-to-earth people I've met. I'd definitely refer him to any and everyone that is in need of a lawyer.
