"Michael De Perio is SO GOOD at his work that we could probably charge a finder's fee when sharing his contact info.  In fact, he's so good that they'd be happy paying it!  :)
Michael was everything that we could ask for in an agent, and we recommend him to everyone we know.  He was patient with us, he listened, he offered consistently effective advice, and he's absolutely the archetype of professionalism.
He was also effective in maximizing our return on the sale of our home.  He worked hard to promote our property, was knowledgeable about which cosmetic upgrades were worthwhile, had a real talent for negotiation, and even seemed to understand how to apply psychology as one of the tools in his toolbox.
The result?  Our home sold for more than 20% over asking, and the process was far smoother than we expected.
- Matt S. Los Angeles, CA - 2021

"We are so happy that Mike was our realtor throughout our home buying journey. He was very helpful, informative and answered all of the questions we had. 200% would recommend Micheal De Perio."
- Jess C. Diamond Bar, CA - 2020

"It was a pleasure working with Michael, he is very organized, has a great knowledge of real estate and he is also a very nice person! The transaction we made with him went super smoothly, as it should!"
- Derek H. San Diego, CA - 2020

"Michael had a lot of PATIENCE in regards to issues with selling my home. I live on the East Coast and it was difficult for me to fly back home during the pandemic. He gave me a sense of trust and peace when I had any questions or concerns. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Michael If you're looking for a professional and legit Real Estate agent."
- Maricar H. San Diego, CA - 2020

"I was very fortunate to have Mike represent me in selling my house. With his many years of experience and having done dozens of transactions, I was confident of this strategy for selling my rather unique house. Through the entire process, Mike was exceptionally professional, knowledgeable, courteous, punctual and trustworthy. I was very pleased with his interactions with me. Equally important, his attributes as a top-notch real estate professional meant that he represented me well when working with the other agents. I am very grateful for all Mike has done for me and I would recommend him to anyone looking for an agent."
- Jean O. Los Angeles, CA - 2020

"We are so grateful to have Mike as our realtor! As first-time home buyers, we knew very little about the process and were nervous about nearly everything, but Mike quickly put our worries at ease and reassured us at every step. Now we own our dream home! When we first saw it, we fell in love, but thought it was pretty unattainable. Thanks to Mike’s expert guidance and skillful persistence, we were able to connect with the sellers and win the bid even without the highest offer. We are believers in everything happening for a reason, but Mike makes it happen. Thank you!"
- Alfie G. Long Beach, CA - 2020

"Mike was an amazing help to me while trying to find my first home. I was placed with a few realtors before him, and I just felt very pressured to put offers/ connect with places that I was on the fence about. When I switched to using Mike (based off a friend's recommendation) I immediately felt the pressure lift. He was very patient and very perceptive about what I liked or didn't like about certain places, which is incredibly helpful when you don't know what you're looking for just yet. With his help I was able to narrow down what I was looking for, put an offer, and close on my first condo. While the whole process can be crazy and stressful, it was much easier and fun with Mike. "
- Bo C. Burbank, CA - 2020

"Michael is an amazing agent! He went above and beyond to secure my first choice home out of so many that we looked at. I also got it below market value! That deserves an extra star."
- David H. Big Bear City, CA - 2020

"I met Michael through a recommendation from a friend. Michael has been extremely helpful and patient with me while helping me find my first home. He has made the daunting task of buying a home a pleasant one from start to closing. Professional and easy to talk to, would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy and I will be coming back to him when I'm ready to sell."
- Kenneth H. Los Angeles, CA - 2020

"Mike knows the LA markets well and understands the pockets that are growing. Further, Mike comes with a lot of resources and contacts that will help fit your needs whether you are a first time home buyer or an investor. Mike is always professional, diligent, and patient through the entire process. I would highly recommend any person that is buying/selling their primary home or investment property."
- Diego R. Los Angeles, CA - 2019

"Simply, the best! We have used Michael to purchase two homes and sell one. He is professional, attentive, and always helpful. I give Michael my full recommendation!"
- Jill P. Sunland, CA - 2019

"Michael is amazing! He helped us purchase our first home in Los Angeles, and helped us sell it a few years later. He has always been responsive to questions and diligent on our timelines. He is personable and kind, and just the nicest guy - he is definitely someone you can trust. He knows the LA and surrounding areas very well. He is in no way overbearing, but provides feedback and opinions when asked. I don't think our house would have sold at all without his suggestions on exterior improvements - which he communicated as totally optional, but it was great advice. We would use him for life if we hadn't moved out of LA, but we will be recommending him across the board. Positive experience, 100%!"
- Lindsay D. Burbank, CA. - 2019

"Michael has been the most responsive and attentive realtor. He was patient with us in finding the perfect house and made buying our new home a smooth process. We are definitely going to work with him to sell our old home. I will recommend him to all my friends and family."
- Alissa M. Duarte, CA - 2019

"Very professional, always on time and responsive to emails and phone calls. Michael will do whatever it takes to make sure your offer is accepted. I had three other offers not accepted before this purchase. Please don’t hesitate to use his services."
- Crystal C. Lake Balboa, CA - 2019

"I met Michael through a Zillow listing and decided to keep him as my agent because he was always patient and accommodating. My parents and I went through a 1031 exchange, so our situation was a bit more complicated than usual, but he was always very helpful and understanding. Definitely recommend!"
- Carrie L. West Hollywood, CA - 2018

"Michael is an excellent realtor. He is honest, knowledgeable and great on follow through. After meeting with a couple other realtors, we landed with Michael and his colleague when we bought our first home in 2013. We were so happy with them, we called Michael back to sell and buy our second house last month. We won’t work with anyone else and happily recommend Michael to our friends and family."
- Suzan E. Lakewood, CA - 2018

"Michael is arguably one of the top agents in the Los Angeles area. His professionalism, local knowledge, and attention to detail were exceptional. From the start of our search to closing Michael was simply a joy to work with."
- Terrence K. Los Angeles, CA - 2018

"First and foremost, Michael (“Mike”) De Perio is a good person. It’s important to note because my experience with some RE agents in the past have felt very impersonal and driven by profit, but not with Mike. He has a good heart, is extremely knowledgeable with market trends, is a clear and effective negotiator, is honest, trustworthy, and compassionate. Mike sold me my very first home back in the winter of 2013. Earlier this year, he sold that same home for me after my wife and I divorced. Mike was kind, professional, attentive, and helpful during this time. As sensitive as this issue was for my ex-wife and I, Mike was there every step of the way to guide us both through the home-selling process. I’ll never in my life forget the person he was for us during that time. I will always consider Mike a friend, and I hope to one day buy another home from him."
- James E. Pasadena, CA - 2018

"Michael brings a lot of knowledge and experience when it comes to real estate, this brings one a lot of comfort and ease when making such a big investment. He is very patient, understanding and always available. He looked out for our best interest and gave us his honest opinion on properties. Michael is a stand up individual, will be using him again in our next property venture."
- Ernie S. Arcadia, CA - 2018

"We could not have asked for a better realtor. Michael was extremely informative, knowledgeable and always available to answer any questions that we had. Selling a home for the first time can be very overwhelming but Michael made sure that the process ran smoothly. He kept to the strict timeline that we were on and he really followed through with everything that had been discussed during our initial meeting. Whether you are selling or buying, if you’re having a hard time deciding on a realtor, Michael is the best choice. He was truly exceptional!"
- Lesley C. Altadena, CA - 2018

"Michael was HUGE in helping us find our perfect home. The market in SoCal is crazy. Michael not only had a handle on the area and all the variables involved with owning a home, he also took the time to get to know our family on a deeper level and understand the neighborhood and home that would be best for us now and for many years to come. He connected us with so many key resources along the way, from the financial side to the get-things-done side of things. He was responsive, available, timely and transparent, checking in with us at all steps of the way and advocating on our behalf. We couldn't recommend a realtor more highly!"
- Joel K. Orange, CA - 2018

"Michael helped us purchase our first home in Burbank. He diligently sent us listings and information for many months until we found the right home for us. He continues to support our real estate needs and questions, and we will absolutely work with Michael on future sales and purchases. He is kind, smart, professional, and a true pleasure to work with. You won't find a better agent!"
- Clay D. Burbank, CA - 2017

"Michael was very knowledgeable of the market and area. Communicated quickly and kept me informed throughout the entire process. There is a high rental demand in the area and even provided trends and currents rent values as a future investment. I would highly recommend him!"
- James T. Sugarloaf, CA - 2018

"I met Michael through Zillow and I'm so thankful! He was helpful, willing, responsive and thorough. He helped us re-think ways to find the right home for us. I highly highly recommend Michael and his team. You will not regret it!"
- Jill P. Los Angeles, CA. - 2017

" I initially contacted Michael De Perio based on his Zillow reviews and research on his Real Estate License and associated brokerage. The reviews were accurate and we found Michael's expertise, marketing, negotiation and communication skills to be excellent. He was without exception professionally prompt for appointments and available beyond standard business hours to accommodate disparate schedules. Beyond that, Michael is a really nice guy that demonstrated patience and empathy for those involved in the transaction that lacked professional experience in contracts and the real estate negotiation/transaction process. Michael's staff (hey Courtney!) and Escrow/Title professional contacts also exceeded expectations to ensure a smooth transaction. It was a pleasure to partner with him to achieve the desired outcome. The summarize, I unreservedly recommend Michael to serve any of your Real Estate buying or marketing requirements. Give him a call to experience top notch service and follow through."
- Ron B. Los Angeles, CA - 2017

"Michael was extremely helpful and kind throughout the whole process of buying a property. In addition to being immediately available to answer any questions, Michael was able to secure a great price that made us very happy. Since we have bought the house, Michael has made it a point to follow up and answer any and all questions we have about the property. I would highly recommend Michael to any first-time home buyers in the future."
- Austin H. Los Angeles, CA - 2017

"Our experience with Michael was great! His ability to adjust to any situation is keen. He is a quick thinker, analysis situations from all angles & responds to the best decision that effects all parties. Call Michael because he will DELIVER!"
- John J. Pasadena, CA - 2017

"Michael recently helped my wife and I buy our first home. As first time home buyers, we had a ton of questions and Michael was extremely knowledgeable and thorough. He's also very friendly and pleasant to work with. We highly recommend him!"
- Zack Y. Topanga, CA - 2017

"Michael is very knowledgeable with the housing market. After listening to what I wanted in a house and the type of neighborhood I wanted to live in, he suggested a few neighborhoods in Los Angeles that fit my overall expectations. He introduced the current neighborhood that I now live in, which before that I never knew existed. He is very responsive to all my questions as this is my first property purchase. I highly recommend him."
- Ashley T. Los Angeles, CA - 2017

"Michael is super knowledgeable, competent and rightly makes you feel confident and at ease through the whole process. He understands the market, he knows the area, staging, presentation, everything. He's always available, and has great communication skills."
- John H. Los Angeles, CA - 2017

"Working with Mike exceeded our expectations of the home buying experience. With Mike's expertise, we were able to narrow down the community that fit our family's needs, have our very first offer accepted and move into our dream home within weeks of closing! We couldn't imagine a more stress-free experience and highly recommend Mike De Perio!"
- Nick Y. Topanga, CA- 2017

"Very good agent. Michael is very knowledgeable about the areas we were looking to buy a house in. We were very careful when buying and had a lot of questions, but he was very patient throughout the process. Anything he isn't sure about, anything he doesn't like about the area or the house, he'll be honest with you and do his research right away. Highly recommended."
- Liezl H. Monrovia, CA - 2016

"Michael is an excellent realtor. He handled our transaction with the highest level of professionalism and ease. It was a challenging transaction that far exceeded our expected timeline, but Mike was able to maintain his patience and resilience to get us a buyer and close the sale. I would highly recommend Mike as your realtor."
- Gino M. Bakersfield, CA - 2016

"Surpassed all our expectations and needs! We had some challenges, but Michael was able to navigate us through all the bumps on the road and to our final destination - our new home! We can't thank him enough for all the personal care. Highly recommend him!"
- Jocelyn J. Pasadena, CA - 2016

"Michael was great when helping my wife and I find a house. I really liked how flexible he was when our wants changed. He was on top of everything and kept us constantly updated. Every step of the process went smoothly thanks to the work he did for us. I would highly recommend him to any of my family or friends."
- Nolan D. Duarte, CA - 2016

"Michael De Perio is an absolutely wonderful agent to work with. Not only did he know the neighborhoods we were looking at like the back of his hand, but he really understood our needs when we described them to him, fit them into our budget, and fought with us to the end to get the house and go through the inherent ups and downs of closing and escrow. We're so happy to have received a beautiful house and to start making it a home! I would absolutely recommend working with him."
- Erica V. Los Angeles, CA - 2016

"Mike was incredibly helpful and once we told him what we were looking for, he was able to deliver! He was always readily available and always happy to answer any questions and provide any information for us. Would definitely recommend him!!"
- Cariza I. Monrovia, CA - 2016

"My husband and I connected with Michael through zillow to start our house search in East LA. We had a strict budget, a lot of criteria, and specific neighborhoods in mind. He stuck with us through seven months of house hunting till we found exactly what we wanted. He is extremely professional and incredibly knowledgeable about up and coming areas around the LA region. Definitely someone we would use again if we decide to buy/sell and someone I would recommend to a friend!"
- Jessica C. Los Angeles, CA - 2015

"Mike was great. He walked us through the entire process and answered all of our questions while providing useful advice along the way. He also was able to help us avoid multiple fees he negotiated with the sellers. He went above and beyond his duties by helping to expedite the escrow process and ensure we were able to close within 30 days as our lease was ending within the Month. He even went a step further and offered to have all of our stuff stored in his home garage when the sellers weren't able to move out by their agreed date. Overall he was professional, knowledgeable, and most importantly reliable through the entire experience."
- Robert L. Chino, CA - 2015

"Michael possesses the tenacity, patience and professionalism, to represent his clients to reach their goals. His follow-thru is always immediate and thorough, and his genuine interest in his clients lasts long past his representation upon purchase or sale. I would highly recommend his services! Michael possesses the tenacity, patience and professionalism, to represent his clients to reach their goals.

- Elizabeth A. Pasadena, CA - 2015

"Michael assisted my family in securing the rental home we've been occupying for a year. He conducted himself with utmost professionalism and discretion. In addition, we felt confident that he represented our interests in the best manner possible and was instrumental in referring us to reputable professionals such as home inspection firm, mortgage lenders and contractors. On behalf of my family, I offer my unqualified support and endorsement of Michael's services as a real estate pro. If you need someone who will seamlessly guide you through the complicated, sometimes scary and exciting process of home ownership, Michael de Perio is your man. I rate him a 5 out of 5 in terms of industry knowledge, professionalism and customer service. Top-notch all the way!"
- Roselyn U. Diamond Bar, CA - 2015

"We had a wonderful experience working with Michael and his team. Great professional touches and presenting technique was obvious. Work was done promptly and our place sold pretty quickly. Already recommending him to anyone who has asked."
- Armen O. Los Angeles, CA - 2015

"Michael was superb to deal with: professional, friendly, down to earth, hard working. Always available to answer a question or give a great recommendation. The pictures and videos he took were excellent. The home was sold very quickly! I'd definitely work with Michael again and I would certainly recommend him to anyone in the market."
- Valentina A. – 2015

"Michael is in a class all by himself. Michael helped me to sell a home in Highland Park in June of 2015. I first met Michael at an open house in the same community where I sold my home. From the beginning, Michael was friendly and personable. Once he became my selling and buying agent, Michael saw my vision and offered his expert advice on how best to feature my property on flyers at local businesses, neighborhood door to door leafleting, and even featuring my property in a video presentation created using a drone. Impressive! So much work went into making my property look its best. Michael and his three of his staff members all showed up at the Open House to assure my property was well represented and shown. Michael's professionalism was further evident in the search for a replacement property. He and I were in constant, often daily, communication through phone, text, and emails. We constantly searched for listings that matched or came close to my needs and wants. It often felt as though I was Michael's only client, as he dedicated so much time to accommodate my busy work schedule. For almost three months, we toured homes and made offers on a few. When I'd get outbid by cash offers, Michael was always encouraging and was ready with the next listing to keep me motivated, even when I was ready to call it quits. I'm very thankful to have met Michael and his entire staff in this home selling and buying process. I think Michael was the perfect agent to represent me in both my sale and purchase. If you're fortunate enough to meet Michael, rest assured you too will be happy with his representation and will highly recommend his services to anyone considering buying or selling."
- Juan G. - 2015

"Michael helped us to buy our first home and we LOVE it! We would've never been able to find it ourselves, as it wasn't even listed on the main websites. We are so thankful he had the knowledge of the area we were looking in to find us a beautiful home, with a great neighborhood. He was always on time when we made appointments with him (and it was easy to schedule appointments), always available to answer questions (and if he wasn't, he would call us back right away), always on top of everything. He kept us informed along the way and really gave his honest opinions about the quality and issues of all the houses we looked at. He genuinely really cares about you and takes time out of his day to make sure you have what you need. I definitely recommend Michael!!!"
- April T. Lakewood, CA- 2015

"Michael had done a great job selling our property. He delivered whatever he promised to do and more. He kept us informed on the showings, feedback, prospective buyers, and contracts. He helped us after a contract was ratified with all details in the escrow process till the close of escrow. He always responded immediately to questions and/or requests. He had demonstrated superior professionalism and integrity. I strongly recommend him as your realtor."
- Irene L. Pasadena, CA - 2015

"We love our new home, which also happens to be our first home, and we have Mike to thank for it, since he is the one who found it and suggested we go see it on a day when we had picked numerous other houses for him to take us to. For that alone, he would have gotten my recommendation, but he was also as professional and as helpful as I could have hoped."
- Kyle I. Lakewood, CA - 2015

"Michael was professional and supportive from our first appointment to the day I picked up my keys. Michael is knowledgeable and kept me updated throughout the entire process. He is always accessible and goes above and beyond to make my experience as smooth as possible. There were many bumps in the process due to factors beyond our control, however, Michael handled every situation with professionalism and expertise. Michael is the kind of agent who is in this business not just make a commission, but he truly cares about his clients and takes the time to listen and understand what their needs are so that he can make it a reality. I trust his advice because he is not telling me things to benefit him but is looking out for my best interest. I have worked with agents whom I felt were not honest and at the end of the experience, it left me having doubts and I would not want to work with them again. Michael has helped me not only with the purchase of my current home, but he helped me with the sale of my previous home as well. Both experiences were so successful, I would not consider working with anyone else in the future. When Michael met me to do my final walk through, he had the foresight to bring a camera to capture that special moment and now because of him, I have those photographs to remember my very special day. It's these little details that sets him apart from other agents. Honesty, sincerity, knowledgeable, integrity, and professionalism are words I would use to describe Michael. These are qualities I would want in my agent. Michael possesses all of those qualities and more. I look forward to working with him again in the future."
- Joey S. Norwalk, CA - 2015

"He is amazing, go with him, you won't regret. Ok, so first of all, I am a type of person that hates to write review. But in this case, I am doing you guys (buyers or sellers) a favor, because Michael will be of tremendous help. As a first time home buyer with absolutely no knowledge on the housing market, fear was the main issue. Questions came, such as am I buying the right house? Is the area safe? What is the potential? High rental area? Future resale value? and etc. Before finding Michael, I went solo to see houses. Everyone that I talked to gave me informations that were not honest, information tailored towards their own benefit. So when I started searching for an agent, I made sure the agent would reply me, no matter what questions or how awkward it was, with no bul-sht, straight and direct. Well, I found no one, except Michael. Every question that I threw at him he immediately replied, no bs, straight and direct. He never pressured me to buy a house, he was always patient and would advise if the house was bad or not. The purchase process was a breeze. By the time that I had to sign all paperworks, the trust that I had with him was enough for me not to even look at the contract or papers to sign. I knew he was working for my best interest and always looking after me. It is late at night and tired, but overall, you cannot, absolutely cannot go wrong with Michael."
- Stefan L. Covina, CA - 2014

"I worked with Michael and his partner to purchase two commercial properties, and they worked very efficiently and effectively. I was able to purchase those properties with no problem. They did a great job."
- Jae L. San Pedro, CA - 2014

"I highly recommend Michael de Perio. He is young but has a lot of knowledge in real estate. I met Michael when I called a property listed for sale and he was the listing agent. It turned out that that property was not what I was looking for. He had a few questions for me, took my number and said that he will try to find me the right house. I was not in a rush to buy a house since I already own and I was happy where I was but thought that investing would be good. A few weeks passed, my phone rang and it was Michael. He said that he has a property that might interest me. He showed me the house and guess what, it is now our home. My husband and I are very fortunate to have met Michael. We live in a gorgeous home in a great community. During the process, Michael was very thorough, patient, helpful and even hooked us up with a wonderful loan officer who, just like him, we cant thank enough. Michael always returned our calls promptly and answered our questions honestly. We were buying during a time when the banking rules were to be extremely compliant, documents to be flawless and money was tight but we closed on time. We are now considering making another investment, God willing, and we will definitely hire the services of Michael De Perio."
- Irma R. Azusa, CA - 2014

"Michael was excellent in all ways -- considerate, communicative, good at solving problems, and he quickly tuned in to our needs to help us find a house that suited us."
- David G. Los Angeles, CA - 2014

"Michael was the best agent a first home buyer could ask for. He was very responsive and informative and would answer all our questions quickly. He was great at telling us what needed to be done and the timelines we were working within and just overall great at handling all the paperwork and processes for us. Would recommend him to anybody I know. Thanks Michael for all your help!"
- Roger T. Diamond Bar, CA - 2014

"Michael is very efficient and quick to respond for any questions you may have during the process. He is very helpful and tries his best to look for the most appropriate home for you. I highly recommend him."
- Karen W. Covina, CA - 2014

"Mike made selling my home easy. I had a rental property in Covina and I needed to sell since I no longer had plans to continue to use the property for rental purposes. Contacted Mike and right away, we got the analyst done and property listed in a couple of days. Mike knew I was a busy due to my work schedule, however he found ways to help me out as much as he can and worked with me. Communication for SuperB, and also professionalism was A+. Couldn't have done the deal any better or smoother than it did. Great person to work with! Highly recommended."
- Kenny H. Covina, CA - 2013

"Michael gave me his full attention through the whole process. I'd attempted to buy many houses with other agents over the past year and Michael was constantly more prepared and knowledgeable about the property then any of them. It was a ridiculously easy process thanks to Michael."
- John H. Los Angeles, CA- 2013

"Michael was very professional and a great listener. I have a list of things I want in a house that I simply will not compromise and a budget that I can not go over and he nailed it! I have gone through so many agents who do nothing but send me to houses that are not my taste at all. Finding a good agent is very hard to do and I am so glad I was referred to Michel. He is truly an expert at what he does."
- Liz N. Koreatown, Los Angeles, CA - 2013
