I worked with Michael over a year in order to purchase a house. I had a specific house in mind and he educated on the market, took me to other houses for comp purposes, and negotiated on my behalf with a seller whose price was above market. Michael was responsive to my needs and I never felt that he was giving me a sales pitch - he was providing me facts and information, giving me guidance, and carrying out what I wanted to him to accomplish. Buying a house can be stressful; therefore, it is very important to work with a realtor who is honest, non-pushy, detailed oriented, and persistent in getting the deal done. If you are serious about buying a house in Laguna, work with Michael.
