Michael is terrific! We were buying a second home, and as we don’t live in the San Diego area, Michael provided keen insights into the various neighborhoods. He actively listens, and directed us appropriately as our needs/requirements evolved. Michael knows the market well (comps, trends, etc) and is an effective negotiator. He is highly responsive, replying immediately to texts, calls, and any questions we had. Michael is extremely diligent about process and masterfully handled the close. What could have been a stressful situation (we were out of the country when the property closed) was handled flawlessly, thanks to Michael’s careful attention to detail and knowledge of the process. Importantly, Michael is a pleasure to know and work with: outgoing and engaging personality, high integrity, good listener, and passionate about his work.
