"Michael was very knowledgable and professional, gave excellent advice and answered all my questions. We had a buyer quickly and the process was as smooth as possible. -Cherie Twohy


"We were looking to buy a home in Altadena and hired Michael at the suggestion of a good friend. She said "If you want to buy in Altadena, you need to hire Michael." We met with several agents and after we met him the choice was clear. We found a property we loved and Michael knew the seller's  agents - Altadena locals. He quickly surmised what the compettition would be for the house and counseled us on aggressive but not excessive offer. Moreover, we crafted a compelling letter to the sellers that (apparently) struck a chord. We were not the highest of the 7 bidders but we got the house - our dream house. I am convinced that we couldn't have done it without Michael. -B Mcpherson


"I recently had my first experience with a real estate transaction, selling my home in Pasadena, CA. Michael Dilsaver was recommended to me by my brother, who had his Altadena CA home sold by Michael. Michael was extremely diligent, attentive and always responded to my calls and emails. My home was  not on the market very long, when potential buyers began to show interest. Offers started to come in and negotiations followed. Thanks to Michael's skillful negotiations, my home was sold at a very good price in just a few weeks with no inconvenience on my . His assistant, Clayton Hughes, also contributed most professionally to the whole process of my home's sale, and he too will soon be a real estate agent. Thank you Michael for your expertise.


I enjoyed a pleasant and productive relationship with Mr. Dilsaver during the time he listed and presided over the sale of my home. He is a hard worker, exceptionally knowledgable about the real estate business, intimately familiar with his service area, and is helpful in ways that go beyond what  is ordinarily expected of a real estate broker. I enthusiastically recommend him to anyone interested in buying or selling real property. -Melvin Bradley


Michael has been our realtor for 17 years. He has helped us buy and sell several homes. He has extensive knowledge about the market in the San Gabriel Valley and his ability to negotiate our transactions have made them seamless and successful. The key to picking a great realtor is choosing  someone with the experience that allows them to predict the next step in the process. Michael combines that experience with hard work and dedication. Buying and selling a home can be a stressful and emotional process. Michael takes care of everything and makes it a very peaceful and successful experience.


Michael is very experienced and knowledgeable. We have used Michael to both buy and sell several of our homes. What makes Michael a truly exceptional realtor is his tremendous strategy and negotiating skills.


We did our diligence in choosing our Realtor before listing our property in Altadena last December. The results have been more than expected ; the process was painless and with a team of professionals I can recommend to any prospective Seller or Buyer. All in the Team Dilsaver were very  professional, diligent, friendly, courteous, prompt, honest and very knowledgable on the process. Any time again, Michael!


I got myself into a real bad situation with a very dishonest Realestate broker. As soon as I got out of that terrible contract I hired Michael Dilsaver. I found him to honest, and he was able to sell my house very quickly to my satisfaction. He took everything I said into consideration and guided  me through that very tough time in my life. I am so happy! I have already referred him a few times. Thank you Michael and the Dilsaver Realestate group.


Michael was the best! He was responsive to all our needs and questions. His knowledge of the area and negotiation skills were superb. My wife used him to purchase the same home 20 years ago. He kept us informed throughout the entire process. Using Michael allowed us to get top dollar for our home.  It was a pleasure working with him.


I have done fifteen transactions with Michael Dilsaver over the past 20 years. Not only is Michael one of the hardest working Realtors on Pasadena, he is also one of the smartest. I know several realtors in the Pasadena area, but I've never met anyone with Michael's expertise of the  marketplace.


I have always been able to count on his honest advice and integrity. He has talked me out of buying more than one property even though it meant loosing a commission for himself. His expertise of the negotiating process has helped me to win a few properties when there were multiple offers, even if I was not the highest bid.


As long as I am buying and selling real estate I will continue to work with and trust the advice of Michael Dilsaver.


I had seen Michael's on properties for several years and knew that when it was time for me to sell my home and find a new home he was the man for us. Michael did a fantastic job marketing our home, we received 7 offers in 5 days and sold for over asking price. We found a home to purchase,  Michael provided comps in the area and guided us in the offer price. We sold our home and moved into our new home within 30 days. Michael is an expert in the industry and we highly recommend him in representing sellers and buyers.


It is a pleasure to recommend Michael Dilsaver. He is a perfectionist.


In his profession. His services are outstanding! I have found him to be honest and reliable. I value my continuing relationship with him.


I moved out of the area to another state. Mr. Dilsaver provided me with the knowledge he had amassed regarding the real estate market so that I could make an intelligent decision about marketing my house. I followed his recommendations and good results flowed. He has the experience, knowledge  and dedication necessary to sell client property. I really appreciated his updating me often.


Michael is one of the best real estate agents in the business. I have used Michael three times in the sale of my property, and every time, I have been completely satisfied with his professionalism and excellent customer service. Each time, he responded quickly to all inquiries during the sale  process and worked closely with me to ensure I received the best possible outcome. He has a keen understanding of market conditions and contributes his knowledge to help his clients be better positioned in the current market.


We have used Michael several times to buy and sell houses. He has a good understanding of the market. He is very knowledgeable about price/value of homes and neighborhoods.
