"Michael Lavigne was our agent in the sale of our family home (in the family for 80 years). We where completely blown away by not only his professionalism but his attention to detail. We have had many agents over the years but none like Michael. This was a 2nd home and Michael was there to take care of any items that we where not able to handle because of living out of the area. My only regret is this is most likely the last time we will use his services because we are no longer in the area. You will not be disappointed to entrust him with your property."

"Michael Lavigne recently represented us on the sale of our home in the Seascape Beach Estates neighborhood. Mike went "above and beyond" to prepare our home for the selling market. He was very knowledgable about the area market and handled our sale expertly. He was highly professional and thorough and communicated updates to us constantly. We highly recommend him to anyone selling or buying a home in the greater Monterey Bay or Silicon Valley areas."

"Mike Lavigne is by far the best real estate professional I have ever worked with. He not only sold my mother's home, but found my sister's dream home in Pleasant Valley 2 years ago. And more recently, he helped me buy my dream beach house in Aptos. Mike's attention to detail is beyond impressive. The sales process for all 3 sales was smooth and effortless for his client. He has multiple design and contractor connections which was extremely helpful in determining estimated improvement costs. He has even designed some of his own clients homes. Mike is a full service real estate pro. I can't imagine working with anyone else as a buyer or seller." - Kathy

"Mike did a fantastic job helping my wife and I purchase a condo in Seascape Resort. I feel lucky to have been represented by him, as he has local knowledge of values and knows the other realtors and was and remains super responsive. I highly recommend using Mike Lavigne!" - Bill

"We were looking for a retirement home in the Santa Cruz area and chose Mike based on the recommendation of a family member. Not living in the area presented some challenges as we didn't know which area we wanted, and when listings came on the market we couldn't just quickly pop in and see them. We made a weekend trip out there Mike spent 1.5 days with us showing us listings from as far north as Big Basin and as far south as Corralitos. He was able to quickly zero in on what we were looking for in a house and helped us find the area that we absolutely loved. He carefully screened all potentials and kept in close contact with us on his recommendations, which saved us time and travel expense.

A month ago, he let us know that the perfect property had just come on the market. He suggested that we see it quickly, which we did and it was indeed perfect for us. It was expected that there would be multiple offers on the property (there were) and Mike wisely counseled us on the initial offer and helped us navigate successfully the through the negotiations that resulted in us getting our dream home and closing in 30 days. Communication throughout this process was excellent...very clear and timely.

We are completely satisfied with Mike's support and strongly recommend him. He knows the area and property values really well, he quickly understands the client's needs, and he provides excellent guidance throughout the business side of the home buying process.
