Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $675K in Seal Beach, CA.

We used a few agents before being recommend to Michael and he made the others look like first graders - there really was no comparison. Michael was great to work with and made the home buying process very easy for 1st time out of state buyers. His knowledge of the market, proactive suggestions and use of technology was very helpful in our decision making process. Michael is also very timely and extremely responsive and we wouldn't hesitate recommending him to any new home buyers.

Bought a home in 2009.

Michael helped me find a home in the Lakewood area. He knew the neighborhoods like the back of his hand and he's absolutely tireless in his work ethic. If you are looking for a straight shooter who knows the business, he's your guy.

Bought a home in 2011.

What an amazing expierence we have had working with Michael Richards. We met Michael a few years back when we were in the process of purchasing a home in the Long Beach area. We weren't sure of the area we wanted to buy in and he was so great in giving us a good range to look at so we could get a feel for what we could afford in a few different areas in Long Beach and even Lakewood. What was so wonderful about our expierence was that it took us 3 years to buy our home and throughout that time Michael was there helping us along the way. He really listened to my husband and my needs and wants in what we were looking for and never gave up on us. He always kept in touch with us giving us updates and market information to keep us in the loop. The day we found our perfect home Michael was ready and quick to respond to help us make our offer. In just a few short weeks we had our perfect home with all the wants and wishes we had been looking for. To us Michael is more than an agent he is a great friend. We are very lucky to have been introduced to him and are happy to pass along his name to all of our friends and family and anyone we hear looking for a home to sell or buy he is your guy.

Bought a home in 2010.

I found that Mike Richard's assistance was invaluable when I bought my home in Simi Valley in 2010. He proved to be very helpful at all stages of the purchase and closing of escrow and made what has been a difficult process in the past, much easier with his professionalism, courtesy and responsiveness. When I started to look at a second property in the Long Beach Beach recently, I had no hesistation in asking Mike to help me again.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $250K in North Long Beach, Long Beach, CA.

Michael Richards is an extremely professional agent. He is a responsible, dedicated, and knowledgeable partner for any real estate transaction. Whenever questions would occur during the escrow process Michael had the answers. If the inspection revealed that a repair needed to be made prior to closing, Michael had a team of professionals at the ready in order to complete the necessary repair quickly and affordably. I can recommend him without hesitation!

Bought a Single Family home in 2003 for approximately $325K in Lakewood, CA.

I tried different agents with no success. I met Michael at an open house and he was very knowledgeable. He made my open buying experience very positive.

Helped me rent a home.

I moved to Long Beach in October 2010, and knew nothing of the area. Michael Richards was referred to me by a colleague. In a short amount of time, Michael helped me find a furnished apartment in the Aquas buildings. His knowledge of the area and downtown living really impressed me. He was able to negotiate my rent down to a rate the landlord and I were both pleased with. He even called several months into my lease to check on my status. His customer service was without a doubt, the best I ever delt with. I would highly recommend Michael to anyone in the market to rent or buy.
