Sold a home in 2014.

I really scoured the reviews when looking for an agent to sell my condo in Santa Monica. I'm glad I found Michael Edlen and I'm thrilled to talk about the experience.

I interviewed a couple of very interesting agents, however Michael had a team working with him. After seeing how long it took other agents to return my calls, I figured maybe a team approach is the right way to go.

I'll give some dates so you have a perspective of how long the entire process took.

April 16th - interviewed agents April 18th - decided to list with Edlen April 25th - had painters bidding on a new paint job May 13th - open House May 14th - offer over Asking July 16th - closed

Christina helped me get the place ready and staged for the open house. She also was my photographer and ad designer.

Andrea hosted my open houses and inspections.

Michael called me the very first day after negotiating an over asking offer.

Monica and Tati handled my escrow and signing papers. There were a few issues that popped up and were dealt with, however the team made things super easy on me and I really appreciated it.

I was concerned that it seemed like my property was the most inexpensive of all the homes Edlen was currently selling. I was concerned they weren't Santa Monica experts, I was concerned how long it would take. In the end, none of it mattered, as they did everything they said they would and then some.

If you hire Michael Edlen, Coldwell Banker, you should feel very comfortable with their process, I know I did. They are good, honest, hardworking people who care.

Sold a home in 2012.

Michael Edlen is the quintessential professional real estate agent. He is extremely knowledgeable of the Pacific Palisades area and has statistics and data that facilitated selling my former home and purchasing my new home. Michael is responsive with exquisite and pertinent attention to detail. Michael made the entire process of selling my former home - while purchasing my new home - seamless. Michael was able to utilize his expertise in negotiating an accurate offer for my new home that saved me thousands of dollars! I cannot say enough praises about Michael Edlen - suffice to say that I am extremely happy with the professional expertise, integrity, knowledge and accuracy that he exudes and practices in his profession. Additionally, Michael has selected an equally professional, competent and responsive assistance team that is consistent with his professional standards of practice.  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $2.375M in Pacific Palisades, Pacific Palisades, CA.

Michael and his team helped us buy our home. The home was originally priced a bit higher than our budget, and in the interim we made offers on several other properties because we needed to move into a SFR quickly. It was a bit of a mad rush.

For virtually every home that we looked at, Michael was encyclopedic in the knowledge of the home and its history. Who had owned it, what the selling dynamic was, what upgrades had been done, what the reaction had been the last time it was on the market, etc.

We ended up returning to the first home that we placed an offer on. Michael helped us negotiate a fair price for it. With a different agent, we might have ended up paying a bit more.

As good as the experience and results were, it's since the purchase that Michael has really shone. Moving into a new home, we knew no local home professionals and tradesfolks. Michael has been able to quickly refer us to a competent and courteous army that has helped us move in and handle all of the joyous issues associated with homeownership.

Michael and his team have earned our praise and gratitude. We're confident that they'd earn yours as well.
