i just purchased a Apartment in San Diego with the help of Michael. that was my first apartment to purchase and he went with me step by step the whole way, at first i was going to take the mortgage with Bank Of America they denied me in the last deadline date for the apartment he helped me extend that deadline to move the mortgage to another company, it took us a while to get the loan approved and with all that time he kept helping. I highly recommend him if you ever think of being a homeowner in San Diego to go with Mike Specially for the first time everything is overwhelming and made it sound easy.

Bought a home in 2015.

Michael is the absolute best! He was always on top of the newest listings, and very flexible with his availibility. He always responds to my messages any time of the day, whenever I had a question. And once we found the perfect home, he was helpful in the negotiating the price and making sure our how was exactly how we wanted it upon move in. I couldn't have asked for a better agent! Thank you, Michael!

Sold a Condo home in 2014 in Mission Valley East, San Diego, CA.

Michael is a down-to-earth agent that is focused on getting results. No Mercedes, Escalade or accompanying attitude. Michael is honest, doesn't sugar coat anything, is quite responsive to questions and is a top notch negotiator.

Showed home in 2015.

Michael is a very knowledgable and attentive realtor, and kept my interests in mind. His advice and responses are direct, to the point, honest, and helpful. I couldn't ask for a better realtor.

His suggestions on certain areas to look for houses were spot on. When I wanted to look in other neighborhoods or was interested in a specific property, he was more than willing to provide all of the details and his thoughts on the price, land, surrounding areas, etc. Michael was also very knowledgable about what upgrades a property would need and how that might impact the asking price. He understood exactly what I was interested in and focused on properties that would meet my requirements.

Bought a home in 2014 in Citrus Gardens Mobile Home Park, Escondido, CA 92026.

Michael was very professional and honest. I was out-of-state buying a house in California and Michael made the transition extremely easy. He came through with everything he said. Hard to find these days. He definitely knows his stuff and if he doesn't know something he finds out and gets back to you. I appreciated him and all his hard work to make this transaction easy and carefree. How many people can say that when buying a house. Cindy Magnes

Sold a home in 2014 in Citrus Gardens Mobile Home Park, Escondido, CA 92026.

We selected Michael Mastro as our agent representing our first home for sale as well as the realtor we depended on to find our growing family of four our new dream home in our target neighborhood. This was no easy feat! The market was uncharacteristic and indeterminable as was the season and timeframe in which we needed to complete our move. In fact I believe the Holidays are considered the offseason of real estate. Most properties sit with little action or notice. Not ours! He managed to quite competently keep his faithful promise and keep us assured constantly and get us in our new home before Thanksgiving, even though we didn't know where that new home was yet. He indeed kept his promise and we were assured every step of the way that he had this goal and the best interest of our entire family at heart! His consistent and constant level of customer service and client care was unparalleled. He was available day or night, any day we needed him, and always revolving around our busy family and work schedules. We were approached numerous times by other agents trying to obtain our business and we were assured throughout the arguous process of buying and selling, contract negotiations, etc., that we made the right choice by sticking with Michael. The process was impressive; the service quick, dependable, and reliable. Michael was able to get our home sold in a matter of a few short WEEKS! All the while several other homes continued to sit on the market in our development and even a few on our very own cul-de-sac. He got our listing noticed and quite simply, helped us move on to the next chapter of our lives quickly, which is exactly what we needed and required, and what anyone enduring this process can agree is imperative. His ability to network amongst the real estate agent and prospective buyer population and market a property are second to none! He is well poised and strategically positioned in the market landscape, up to the minute on technical advantages and strategies for bringing in the buyers, and utilizes a magnificent team of competent individuals to streamline this often hectic and confusing process. He coordinated all services along the way, from scheduling a top notch cleaning crew to help stage our home to sell quick, to hiring a state of the art professional photographer (the most talented I've seen) to capture ideal images of our home to make our listing sharp and one that would indeed stand out above the crowd. This attention to detail, coupled with Michael's plugged in status in the real estate world is no doubt what got our property sold. He operates in a confidently calm and casual, yet collected, manner that eased our tensions all the way through the process. When it came time to select our new dream home, Michael was attentive, responsive, and promot to our requests to view any and all properties we desired. Previously we were not given any such indulgences by our last agent who sold us our first home. We know the difference between a responsive and competent agent versus what we had experienced previously, which resulted in us purchasing a home that was all wrong for our family and our lives. Thankfully Michael was the one to get us moved on from that reality and get a great impression in our minds of the endless possibilities that can be discovered if you have the right agent on your side. I had an opportunity to meet the agent who represented the seller of the home we ultimately chose. He very candidly informed me that it was 100% due to the incredible and unique way Michael presented our offer to his selling party that is what motivated them to select us as their buyers. He informed me that the sellers were entertaining multiple offers and comparing comps at significantly higher values than what our offer came in at. It was because of Michael that they considered and ultimately accepted our offer. Michael of course never mentioned a word of these details to us so as to help us avoid unnecessary stressors even though it would have helped his reputation. He is humble and not one to take credit. It is always about his clients, first and foremost. As I happily siit in my new home admiring the gorgeous ocean, lagoon, and peaceful hillside views writing this, finding we are almost completely unpacked, organized, and decorating our dream home (10 years in the making) for our first Christmas in this home, I can relax knowing our family couldn't have made a wiser choice in who we relied heavily on to sell and buy properties with. Michael should be your first choice! We will no doubt look to him in the future for any such transactions!

Sold a home in 2014 in Citrus Gardens Mobile Home Park, Escondido, CA 92026.

When we saw two For Sale signs pop up in our neighborhood just before we decided to list with Michael Mastro, my wife and I were concerned.

No worries for us, though. Michael handled everything with our sale exceptionally well. From photos and open houses to paperwork and showings everything just seemed to flow. I appreciated his positive attitude and his prompt communication.

We went from Listing to Sold in 7 weeks. Oh, and the other homes in the neighborhood? Yah, they're still on the market.

Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $425K in Sabre Springs, San Diego, CA.

Michael is extremely professional and expedited the sale of my condo with great care. He helped me get my condo ready for sale and within two weeks we had an offer. He negotiated the counter offer and within a few days we were in escrow. He never wavered in getting the best for me. Thank you Michael.

Showed home in 2011 in Rancho Bernardo, San Diego, CA 92128.

Mike Mastro is a consummate professional. Mike showed my wife and I homes to buy in the local area, but wasn't ready to buy at the time. He was available literally around the clock, provided me with tons of different options and comparisons in searching for the right house.

We decided not to buy at the time he showed us, but I would have no problem referring anyone looking to buy or sell their home, to contact Mike Mastro. Thank you Mike for all your hard work!
