I had met Michael once before about a year ago when we looked at a house in Mira Loma. I conveyed to Mike what we were looking for and he kept me informed during the past year of potential houses. We found the house we were looking for in Sept. 2013. When the offer/purchase process began, Mike gave us peace of mind through the entire escrow time period. Mike is extremely knowledgeable in his field. He is aware of and utilizes the latest technology to expidite the process of a home purchase accurately. Above all of this, Mike cares. He took personal interest in our needs and desires and represented us in a way that can only be described as outstanding!!! I, by nature, am a worrier. Thanks to Mike O'Conner, I slept well at night knowing he was on top of the entire process and kept us informed every step of the way. My wife and I not only gained a beautiful new home, but a good friend in Mike.

Michael is a person of high integrity and has vast knowledge of the local real estate market. His professionalism exceeded our expectations and his friendly personality eased us into the leasing process. I would highly recommend Michael O'Connor.
I have worked with Michael for several months now, and we have made several offers in the Riverside county area. Although we have not closed a property yet, I strongly recommend Michael and his effort, diligence, and sincerity. I have worked with many agents, and Michael is by far the best I have worked with.
I am looking for a home in Riverside with financing in the lower priced range. With the current market conditions, it's hard to win a bid on a home with financing, and even harder to find an agent who is willing to put enough forth effort to assist you through the process, since the commission is low. A lot of agents immediately lose interest when they realize that you not looking for a high priced property and they aren't getting a big cut from it.
I first met Michael through a video walkthrough of a property he posted on Youtube. It was very informative, and featured detailed explanation of what's inside as well as his assessment of the property as he walked though it. It's almost as if you're right there. I later requested another property, which he promptly recorded another youtube video for me to view. Afterwards, each property that I expressed interest in, I received a video without even having to make a request. I'm sure it takes a good chunk of time for 2 people to videotape and explain a walkthrough of the property in detail, for every property the client requests. Needless to say, I was very impressed.
When making an offer, Michael informs you of items to be aware of, as well as market comparisons of the property of interest. He also utilizes technology very well - I was able to view the analysis, make bids and sign electronically. This is is a big plus for me, as I work long hours and rely on the agent to provide me information and documents quickly. Michael is also knowledgeable, and provided me with helpful information when making a decision on whether to bid for a property. All of his suggestions have been spot on. He is also very responsive - I got replies back within a few hours, except when we dealt with a few headaches and could not get answers (more below).
We dealt with some difficult sellers, i.e. one who never responded back to us , and another whose agent never submitted our offer to the property owner. In both cases Michael gave me regular updates, and attempted to reach the owner directly when we got no response from the seller. In the latter case, he filed a formal complaint due to the unethical practices of the agent. He did this even though there was nothing to gain other than this being the right thing to do. This, for me, separated Michael from all the other agents I've worked with. He is a true professional and cares about getting the property closed as much as I do, and it wasn't because of monetary gain, it's simply because he is doing the right thing
Michael's top-notch service, his attention to detail and knowledge of the market, and most importantly, integrity and honestly, is something that all agents should emulate, but few actually practice. I highly recommend Michael to anyone looking for a property - this is an agent you can trust and know that you will be well taken care of.
I would like thank Michael for his assistance with my recent property purchase. I am extremely pleased and grateful for his help with the purchase of my new home. I was impressed by his attention to details to protect my interest as well as to save me money.
In addition, his strong and positive network with related professionals and businesses (Title companies and Inspection Professionals) streamlined the process. Michael is held in high esteem by his peers, as I discovered during our association.
Michael really exceeded my expectations, and I hope to work with him again.
Thanks Again Michael!
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Corona Valley, Eastvale, CA.
Working with Michael was awesome! Having an agent with so much expertise with short sales made the process so much easier for my husband and me. We thought selling a home while living out of state would be difficult, but Michale handled everything and kept us updated throughout the process. We highly recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home.

I would highly recommend Michael O'Connor.
Not only is he highly skilled at what he does, but who he is as a person is someone of great integrity. He is a non pushy, relaxed, yet focused on your needs real-estate agent. He will help you find the right home for you!! A very kind person that myself, my husband and children liked very much!!
This is not the first time I purchased a home. My company had moved and I needed to relocate to an area I knew little about. Michael helped me and my family find the perfect home. It was a short sale and I had never been throught that process before. Michael steered us through the process with great expertise. He was very responsive to all our questions and concerns (and believe me there were lots of these). His knowledge, expertise, negotiating skills and perseverance was second to none. I will recomend his services to anyone and everyone I know. Michael if you read this thank you for everything you did. Without you guiding this process I truly believe I wouldnt be in this home today. You will always be a friend to the family!
