Ratings & Reviews

I worked with Michael ten years ago, when I was looking for my first house. After months of patiently listening to me explain what I wanted (but couldn’t find), Michael found me the perfect home, at a price well below what I expected. Michael was the ultimate professional throughout that sale; tirelessly attuned to detail, always forward-thinking and conducting his business with only the highest standards in mind. A class act. I had ten blissful years in my home, and when it came time to sell, Michael was my first call. All the same qualities that made him invaluable to me as a buyer were proven ten-fold as a seller. The process was much more involved and Michael expertly guided me through it; choosing the necessary renovations, deciding on a listing price, creating the marketing materials, overseeing the open house, navigating the almost dozen offers we received, and finally helping me deal with a nervous first-time buyer – much like I was ten years ago. Why is he such a great resource on either end of the deal? Because at the heart of Michael’s success is a simple credo, one that garners him both clients and other agents who seek out his advice and involvement. That a good sale is where a buyer and seller both walk away happy. If you share that belief, as I now do? Michael is your guy.

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $900K in Santa Monica, CA.

To put it simply, Michael Collins is the best. He’s professional, on point, and most of all he is a lovely person. As first time home buyers in Santa Monica in 2009, we were intimidated by the whole buying process. Michael was highly recommended to us by a good friend and his knowledge, patience and guidance were exactly what we were looking for in a real estate agent. He was always available, day or night. We always felt like Michael truly cared that we were happy and that finding the perfect home for us was his top priority.

Now 5 years later, we are selling our first home and have gone to Michael again to guide us through our first home selling process. This time, he is working with the wonderful, professional and kind, Allie Riley. Together they make an excellent team and we have been nothing but pleased with both of them in regards to their professionalism, knowledge, responsiveness and guidance. They are a true pleasure to work with and we will 100% recommend them to friends and colleagues. We cannot begin to thank both Michael and Allie enough for everything they have done for us.

Warmest regards, Tracy Pope & Paul Falcone

Bought a Single Family home in 2008 for approximately $1.15M in Mar Vista, Los Angeles, CA.

We feel so lucky to have worked with Michael Collins in recently buying our home. We cannot recommend him more, nor can we compliment him enough!

When we decided to move quickly on buying an architectural home that had just been listed, we called Michael and he helped us forge ahead with lightning speed on the offer. His ability to throw himself quickly into our purchase and keenly represent our interests was the difference between getting the house and having it slip away. In addition, with Michael’s savvy counsel, we were able to sell our old house within the week in order to purchase our new home.

Michael was incredibly professional and communicative. He was in constant contact by e-mail and telephone throughout the escrow and mortgage application process. He also recommended to us a great crew of professionals to inspect and make repairs on our property all of whom were fantastic.

In what might have turned into a stressful transaction, Michael smoothed the way for us. He put us at ease with his exceptional experience and we always felt well taken care of with his reliable, confident, honest, and truthful approach. He was absolutely amazing to work with in every step of our real estate transaction.

Thank you so much, Michael, for helping us into our wonderful new home. We honestly don’t think we could have done it without you!
