"I recently worked with Mike and his team on both buying and selling a house. Very prompt, professional and made the whole process as simple as it could be. Him and his team knew a lot about the In/outs of the real estate market, and was able to sell my property at a awesome price! Mike always looks out for your best interests and is always there when you need any questions answered. I sure had a lot of them since I was both a first time buyer and seller!
I recently got engaged and wanted to move to a location that would be closer to work for both my fiancee and I. Mike helped me purchase a property that was perfect for the both of us, and was able to negotiate a very good price with the seller and his agent. The whole paperwork process went smoothly and escrow closed without a hitch! My fiancee and I couldn't be happier with the whole experience.
After purchasing the new property I also needed to sell the former townhouse property I was living in. A few other units in my property had sold earlier that year and there was a ball park sales figure that had been established. Mike and his team were able to beat those figures by a good margin! He introduced me to his painter who touched up the interior paint, and also helped me stage the property for a open house. We received a offer immediately and the sale was complete again without a hitch.
All in all I am so glad to have been able to work with Mike and his team and will recommend him to all my friends/family who need help with real estate buying/selling. Thank you everything for Mike!

"Mike and his team were the best I could hope for. Being extremely busy and going into my first sale with no background knowledge or time, he gave excellent advice which upped the offers by at least 10% from what i expected to sell for. He also took care of all the out standing issues and made the paperwork as easy and clear as possible that i could handle despite being on the road. You can't go wrong with Mike!" - Mark
"Mike is very friendly and knowledgeable. Most real estate agents can come off as pushy, and that is absolutely not the case with Mike. He also goes out of his way to help his clients. My fiancé and I were definitely lucky to have met him through an open house. His team recently helped us close our first house and we couldn't have been happier with the experience. I will be recommending him to any friends or family who is looking to buy/sell properties from now on. Thanks again Mike!" - David
"I'm so glad I worked with Mike on my first home purchase. The whole process of being a first time buyer in LA was so daunting. When I started working with Mike after meeting a couple other realtors, I finally felt like this home buying thing was going to work out. This was because Mike is highly competent, well connected and personable. I was looking in northeast LA and was continually impressed by his knowledge of various neighborhoods.
Mike remained accessible for questions and quickly followed up about specific listings I had questions about. At times when my availability was limited, he viewed the property himself or even talked other realtors into showing us a home before it was officially open for viewing. When I asked for his opinion about the homes we viewed, he offered honest feedback, which I greatly appreciated.
Mike's extensive knowledge of all things home related was comforting and he draws on his knowledge not only as a realtor but also from experience as a broker and as a real estate lawyer. Also, Mike is just generally a really nice person to be around; he gets along with everyone and so I felt like I was working with my friend.

"Bottom line: you won't find anyone better when you're looking for a house. Mike has the right balance of knowledge, patience, and negotiation savvy. With other realtors at best you'll get two out of three of those qualities, and often even less. I know because we worked with four other agents over the course of a couple years before we met Mike.
We had a long housing search because we were doing it long distance and flying down when we could. We'd find listings online, contact our previous realtors and they'd open the doors for us (usually, though often they'd fail to schedule showings). One day when my previous agent wasn't free I went to see a listing in Eagle Rock that happened to be Mike's, and we started talking. It was immediately obvious he knew not just everything about the local real estate market but he knew the people as well -- the realtors, the lenders, the contractors, and more -- and was interested in finding us what we were looking for.
From then on, when we'd ask him about a house, he'd often go and see it the next day on his own and give us an honest take on whether it was worth us flying down to see. He was always available to patiently answer our (sometimes long-winded) questions and would give us a thoughtful assessment of each house. Once we finally had an offer accepted and we found issues during inspections, Mike was tough yet fair with the sellers and got us a great price. In the long and sometimes trying process that was our housing search, Mike was the one person who made it all better.
