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.
