We are taking the time to write this because this goes out to all of those that think they need to interview a string of real estate agents before choosing one. You will only come to the conclusion that Michael Collins is the clear and ONLY choice—for selling or buying. Trust me when I say that the due diligence we did will only save you the painstaking process of weeding through the “Big Talkers.” There is no other agent with the years of experience that Michael has, coupled with his unique set of skills…pure genius. And, you couldn’t find a more sincere and well respected professional…in any field. Any. So, if you’re looking to sell your home, as we did, by someone who not only has years of experience, but by someone who knows the market, has creative selling strategies and is very well respected in the real estate community, then Michael is…the clear choice. And, if you think he’s going to rest on his record, abundance of experience, and stature in the market place, you are sadly mistaken. He will treat you like you are his only client, as he did with us, when we knew of the multitude of listings that he already had. His work ethic is…unmatched. And, we…and you… are all the better for experiencing it.<br/><br/>Sincerely, Reldon & Sean Coffey

Sold a Townhouse home in 2013 in Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA.

I have known Michael for over 20 years and we’ve done three real estate transactions together. He sold my house and helped me and my husband buy a new home in 2008 and just recently helped us sell that same home. Each experience was a positive one because of Michael’s exceptional skills as an agent and knowledge of the market.

Our latest experience was a bit of a nail-biter. My husband and I were all set to rent our place because we truly believed that we couldn’t sell the property for what we paid for it in 2008. Michael knew what was happening in the housing market and felt that we should list it for sale first. He suggested a price that we both thought was unrealistic…and more than we originally paid for the condo. Well…full price offer a day before it hit the MLS.

Due to circumstances beyond anyone’s control (we were notified 7 days before closing that a major construction project was in the works next door), the deal fell apart but Michael immediately put it back on the market and, despite the pending project next door, we had another offer within three days which resulted in a sale.

Having Michael as our agent made all the difference in this particularly tricky and at times difficult deal. When my husband and I are ready to buy again, Michael will be the first person we call.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.8M in Hollywood Hills, Los Angeles, CA.

We are honored to consider Michael a friend and a trusted professional for our real estate needs. He represented us on the original purchase of our property and then the subsequent sale many years later. We had a very demanding overseas move and Michael took care of every possible detail of the sales transaction so we could focus our energy on the logistics of the upcoming move. He went far beyond what we would expect of a real estate agent, stepping in on numerous occasions to work with the buyers to ensure the transaction kept progressing as predictably as possible towards closure. He provided the calm voice of experience and reason that only comes from many years of experience working with clients and understanding the smallest details of this often confusing process. We are grateful to Michael for his dedication and do not hesitate to recommend him to everyone we know requiring the services of a top notch real estate team.

Sold a Condo home in 2013 in Mid Wilshire, Los Angeles, CA.

Michael did a great job for me in selling my property in Hancock Park. I actually first worked with Michael eight years ago when he helped me buy my place. In both situations I don’t think I could’ve had a better realtor. Michael was extremely knowledgeable about the market, expertly guided me through each step and was always easy to reach and responsive to my needs and questions. He’s also well connected and respected in the LA real estate community and has great contacts for lenders, inspectors, and agents in other areas. Ironically this helped me buy my new house in Pasadena, where it turned out Michael knew the selling agent. Michael went above and beyond and went to bat for me in placing several calls on my behalf…without my asking. I know his support really helped seal the deal. I think the highest praise I give Michael is that if and when I were to buy again in LA again, he’d be my first call. Michael Collins is a terrific real estate agent and a class act.

Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $2.775M in Hollywood Hills, Los Angeles, CA.

We recently sold our house of 11 years with Michael, he was truly a pleasure to work with. He handled the sale with a steady hand, and head. The real estate market is not an easy one to negotiate these days and Michael’s years of experience provided a solid base to work from.

We were impressed with his confident business approach but more so with his friendly and caring nature. He understood that we were not just selling a house, it was a truly special place for us and not an easy one to part with. He assured us “the right buyer” was out there and he was right. When he brought us an offer on the house he encouraged us to get to know the buyers and I am glad we did, we felt very comfortable selling the house to them.

We are happy to recommend Michael and pleased to have had his help through this process.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $2.475M in Hollywood Hills, Los Angeles, CA.

We have known Michael for 13 years now, since he helped us buy our first property. We recently reconnected when we were ready to purchase a home and it was like no time had passed. The first thing you should know about Michael is that he has an amazing reputation. Every realtor we met knows him and praises him for his knowledge, professionalism and honesty. The second thing you should know is that he makes the buying process as easy as it can possibly be. He is always available for questions (no matter how minor or how many), responds to emails in a lightning quick manner, anticipates all your needs, is a great negotiator, and even makes signing paperwork as efficient as possible. Finally, he is incredibly accommodating, since his first priority is to make his clients happy with their purchase. We are proud to call Michael our realtor and are even prouder to refer him to others.
