Client Testimonials


 I worked with Michael over a year in order to purchase a house. I had a specific house in mind and he educated on the market, took me to other houses for comp purposes, and negotiated on my behalf with a seller whose price was above market. Michael was responsive to my needs and I never felt that he was giving me a sales pitch - he was providing me facts and information, giving me guidance, and carrying out what I wanted to him to accomplish. Buying a house can be stressful; therefore, it is very important to work with a realtor who is honest, non-pushy, detailed oriented, and persistent in getting the deal done. If you are serious about buying a house in Laguna, work with Michael.

 

 Mike has been a tremendous help in finding a home for my family. He and his team provided support long after the sale transaction was completed. We could not have bought a home without his help.

 

 Mike, and his associate Tara, are every househunter's dream team: extremely knowledgable about multiple communities, quick to assess a buyers needs and preferences, willingness to commit to the time needed to find a home in a tough market, proactive communicator, professional as well as personable, and a savvy and insightful negotiator. It was a pleasure, even fun, to work with him and to navigate the sometimes stressful process of finding the perfect home. With his expertise, we were able to find a great home, great financing, and went from signed contract to close of escrow in 3 weeks. In every facet of our home search he went above and beyond our expectations.

 

 We found Mike at a very stressful time in our lifes. We needed to make a fast sale on a high end property. Mike did just that for us.He was kind, friendly and professional. Not only did he walk us thru a sale with many chalanges, but he also delt with tenents in my property at the time. He knew just what to do and how to do it. Thanks again Mike for all your help. We couldent have done it with out you. PICK HIM AS YOUR AGENT YOU WONT BE SORRY :)

 

 I can't speak highly enough of Mike and his team. They walked me through a sale from start to finish and made the entire process completely understandable and as stress free as possible. While Mike was easily accessible, I rarely had to contact him because he kept me so well informed along the way that I almost never had any unanswered questions. This was the most professional and personal assistance I have ever had in any business transaction; what an unexpected pleasure!

 

 My boyfriend and I just purchased a home with Mike as our agent. The transaction went very smoothly and Mike was there to answer any and all questions we had. You would be very fortunate to have him on your team!

 

 Mike was very professional and helped me purchase a home in a very tough competitive market. He was always very courteous, pleasant and in good spirits. He was very knowledgeable about the short sale process. He counseled me through the unpleasant ordeal which demanded patience, guidance and support. Mike always promptly returned phone calls and answered all my questions. I was just a 20-30 percent down little fish in a big sea of cash offers, but Mike guided me through the rough current effectively. Mike is unique in that he puts the needs of his clients first.

 

 We listed our house in Laguna Beach in a tough market but Mike helped us set the price right and he marketed the property very effectively. Showings and open houses were handled very professionally and always with advanced notice. The house sold quickly and for a great price. It seemed like Mike and his team were always two steps ahead of where they needed to be so when any unforseen issues arose they were handled quickly without derailing the sale. Highly skilled professional realtor. I wouldn't consider using anyone else the next time I buy or sell a home in Orange County.

 

 The most amazing thing about Mike was that even though I bought a small condo in the OC, he always treated me like I was a "multi-million dollar client"! We started searching in mid-November and by December, I had already put an offer in! And that's because even if we were not out looking at properties, Mike was always looking at my list of prospects and would actually call me when he saw something he thought I might like! During the escrow process he called me almost every day with updates on who was doing what and walked me through all the confusion of escrow. He truly made it an enjoyable experience and I will forever be grateful to him for that! I am a single mom and was able to purchase a place in Ladera Ranch, thanks to Mike! I think the definition of a "professional" is one that makes whatever he is doing look easy... Mike does just that and more! He is genuinely a nice person and so what could be a very painful and laborious process, was actually fun and exciting!

 

 Mike assisted me in purchasing a duplex in Laguna Beach during the summer of 2011. Mike was always there whenever needed and ensured that the entire process went as smoothly as possible. He provided great advice and creative solutions that kept the transaction moving forward. Mike was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend him to anyone. Even the seller commented to me that I had a great agent.

 

 Mike is extremely professional and dedicated to getting the best possible outcome for his clients.

 

 Mike has been invaluable to us in Laguna. He helped us find our current home and has sold two investment properties for us. His depth of knowledge of the Laguna Beach real estate market is extensive. He is friendly, professional and easy to work with. I would highly recommend to anyone considering purchasing or selling a home in Laguna that they speak with Mike. He's a rare find!

 

 Mike worked diligently to provide a full range of services in connection with purchasing, renovating and then renting out a home. His knowledge of the local area was extensive and he provided immediate and effective assistance in all areas of the transaction. He also went above and beyond with his time and resources. I would highly recommend him to anyone buying or purchasing real estate.

 

 Michael came highly recommended by a trusted friend in an ancillary business. I met with him and was impressed. He both leased a home I own and sold another home for me. I am no longer local to the area and he went above and beyond the "call of duty" taking care of the many little details in both transactions.

 

 I needed to sell a multi-unit property quickly and mentioned it to Mike. Through his contacts, there were 3 terrific offers within days. He helped make it a very smooth transaction.

2012 Update. Mike has been watching for another property for me. I would give him a property address and he gave me his professional opinion of it. After a time, he called with the information about a new on the market condo. This fit my budget and location requirements. He made all the arrangements to create a very easy transaction.
