Mike has worked with us a few times, creating custom Facebook tabs/apps for our page. He's super-easy to work with (a few emails takes care of the details); quick to get the job done; and the work always looks great! PS: his posts are pretty good, too!
Let's be real. Everybody likes a pretty website. It also needs to be easy to navigate, easy to use (for non-geeks like me) and attractive to Google. Yeah. SEO.
Luckily, I happened upon Mike Mueller and AreWeConnected.com while I was floating around the blogosphere.
I hemmed and hawed but eventually asked Mike to design a custom Wordpress website/blog that would be pretty, easy to navigate and easy to use. Best of all it could be hosted where it wouldn't cost me an arm and a leg.
Mike did a great job and I couldn't be more thrilled. Truly.
So, if you're looking for a nice website/blog. Stop looking. This is the place. Call or e-mail Mike.
Mike is very easy to work with. Emails are answered in a timely manner and the work is completed on time. This is my second time working with Mike.

Good, Better, BEST! If you are looking for the best in designing a Facebook business page or a mentor for social media and the web then look no further! Mike Mueller knows how to get you connected! We used Mike on two designs and his responsiveness, creativity and communication are second to none. https://www.facebook.com/pg/PrescottLakesLiving/
To my real estate pals, I wanted to give a BIG-High-Five and sincere thank you to Mike Mueller. Mike is the go-to-guy if you know your blog is sorta weak and needs a major upgrade and some modern day mojo. I've heard great things about Mike and his work for years. It's refreshing to work with someone who's the real deal. My only regret is that I bumbled along too long before calling on him. If you need some blog magic, an impressive Facebook Biz page or other online excellence, starting or amping-way-up, I recommend Mike.

Mike has been helping our company develop our rental website for last 4 or 5 months. His assistance and expertise in developing our site has been amazing. He is very responsive when a question arises and has great ideas on how to make our website all it can be! Greatly appreciate the help Mike!
Mike was very responsive (and patient), and did a great job making sure my requests were completed.
Mike is great to work with. Our organization just went through a rebrand and Mike was able to process my non-web speak and make the changes we needed for our site, as well as suggest others to make it even better!
I wanted to thank you for helping me by repairing with what was an awful mess of a website. My site now looks beautiful and works as I had hoped it would. I am awarding you first prize for patience too! You weren’t kidding when you told me you were fast. I spoke to you just before 2 and by 3pm you emailed me with the project complete. I am truly grateful for all that you’ve done.

Mike is busy! And now I know why! What a great website developer, explained everything to me in detail, and was very patient with every question that I had for him. He must of thought he was talking to Fred Flintstone at some point in time when it came to website development and other related matters! He had some good ideas as well and we got on track with the direction I wanted to pursue. I look forward to continuing to work with him in the future and I would definitely recommend him!

This was not my first website build. I have other ones and have used other Designers. Mike offers creative ideas that solve problems, pre-design meetings that answered questions and the communication through the process was excellent. I would strongly recommend Mike and his team.
Sam Benson http://bensonproperty.management
When I needed to upgrade and update my professional real estate website, I was referred to Mike at AreWeConnected.com. Mike met with me and listened to my overall website plan, wants and needs. After discussing what was possible, what might be possible and some of his own ideas, he worked off of a shared document to go one by one down a list and make the modifications needed. He was very responsive, often fixing or making adjustments often within moments of my request.
He was also very patient with me when getting my assets together was a slow process. When he wasn’t sure about something, he very clearly communicated with descriptions and screenshot images to make sure we were on the same page. I will definitely be working with him again and if you have a real estate website that you’d like to tweak or want a expert opinion on where to start, I highly recommend Mike!

As the President & President Elect for the Arizona Chapter of the Women’s Council of REALTORS, we looked to Mike Mueller of AreWeConnected.com to help us create a website that would put us in a position to attract new members to our organization as well as give our present membership a place to go to get information they need. Our old website needed updating to create a new look and we worked with Mike to get the “look” and content to be what we thought would be esthetically pleasing as well as user friendly. Mike gave us some tips, listened to our “wish list” and together we created a wonderful website in a time frame needed. Changes were made with ease whenever requested and Mike has always been a great communicator whenever we had questions or concerns.
We would recommend Mike for anyone who would like a website design that pops and is easy to navigate for even the most challenged web surfer.

Mike was so easy to work with and answered all of my questions (no matter how silly they may have been)! He was able to create an awesome website for me and taught me how to maintain it! I am so glad I chose to have Mike create my site!
I had a self-designed website for well over a decade, and I knew I needed upgrades in all areas.
Mike quickly picked up on what I was trying to do with my site, integrated my real estate blog, and did all the necessary after-design tweaks to give me a classy, consumer friendly website.

I knew what I was looking for. After months of working in wordpress on my own and signing up then canceling a "boxed" website service, I came upon Mike. From the first conversation to my finished website, he is knowledgable, personable and has an up-to-date knowledge of his industry that I can rely on. I WILL recommend him to people who can benefit from his services.

If you're looking to work with someone who answers all your questions, responds to every email in record time, and actually does what he says he's going to do, then Mike Mueller is your guy. I'm an impatient girl from New Jersey and he has been fantastic to work with at every stage of this process and I would highly recommend him. Thanks Mike!
I found Mike through a Facebook group in which I belong. He has taken quite a burden off me. I started the process by trying to create my own website. I left IT about 15 years ago and never wanted to go back. Mike rescued me. With trying to be the best real estate sales person I had no time to be a IT person as well. He keeps it simple, yet the website he created checks all the boxes. I am sure that as I become more attuned to my client's needs it will be a much better website in the future with Mike's help. He always has time to answer questions and often will create short videos to help explain something. I look forward to a long relationship. Do yourself a favor, hire Mike. You will be many dollars ahead.

Mike did a great job designing my new website and I am very pleased with the results. It goes without saying that Mike is extremely knowledgeable in every aspect of this business and in addition he's a great guy to work with. He is very helpful and patient in answering every question or concern that I had and always in a very timely manner. Why would you pick someone else to design your website?

Mike came highly recommended as a creator of professional, lead generating web sites and that confidence was not misplaced. As a relative newbie to the different facets of web based marketing, social media, etc., I found his insights and suggestions to be invaluable. I would not hesitate to recommend him or to use him again on future projects.

Mike was a pleasure to work with. I had tried other developers previously but they did not implement my vision. He was thorough and took the time to provide me with what I was looking for. I am extremely happy with my site and look forward to continue to work with Mike. I would highly recommend him.

Mike did a great job setting up my web site while providing me with helpful coaching along the way in order to get the site up and running.
Tony Ciancanelli https://urehomes.com/
I am a REALTOR® by profession. My previous website looked beautiful; I loved it. However, as my business grew, I discovered its limitations. After serious research, it became clear WordPress provided the features and flexibility I needed most. After interviewing multiple real estate agents, I heard Mike's name mentioned several times. My husband, who handles all things social media, contacted Mr. Mueller. They hit it off superbly well. My husband can be quite exacting when it comes to design. I am so grateful for Mike's perseverance. The final website design and function surpassed our expectations. I highly recommend Mr. Mueller's services to anyone searching for website design.
Ivy Stanton https://ivystantonhomes.com/
I had a fabulous experience in creating my website with Mike. He listened to me and caught the vision of how I wanted to create for my clients when they come to my page. It was so helpful that he had so many examples of his previous work for me to browse so I could imagine what *I* wanted for my site.
He was prompt and patient. I had some personal things that slowed down my participation in the process, but as soon as I had content for him, it was done so fast!!
And here’s the thing, he’s also just a really nice guy and very easy to talk to. I highly endorse Mike Mueller for your website building and management.
Sally Plautz https://raleighhomesliving.com/
Mike was and is a pleasure to work with. He created a quality site in record time and has been quick to respond and help whenever needed. You will not be disappointed if you choose Mike to create your real estate website!
I had the pleasure of working alongside Mike for ~ three months and couldn't be happier with his communication, understanding, patience, and ultimately the final website. He was able to interpret my needs despite my lack of technical terms and knowledge, suggested very helpful changes regardless of their difficulty, and made the entire process easier than I had expected --- and produced an excellent final product that exceeded expectations. He's now my go-to and I highly recommend the same for anyone else.

Thank you Mike! So nice to have you “in the back pocket” and able to do what’s hard for me!

My bio used to be in 1st person but I had so many interviewers who wanted a 3rd person version this was just easier. I might go back to 1st or maybe add a 1st person version as well.
