Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $500K in El Cajon, CA.
I think we were one of Mike's longest clients. But he hung in there and we found the best house for our family. He is dependable and hard working. I liked the fact that when I called him he picked up the phone and rarely let it go to voice mail. The process of buying a house can be a very tedious one but Mike helped to make the process go as smooth as possible. I would highly recommend him if you are thinking of buying or selling.

Mike is also willing to drop what he's doing to help his clients. Whether its 6am on a Sunday or 10pm on a Wednesday night, he is always available. Mike is also very personable and works well with all the other agents that we dealt with. I have and will continue to recommend Mike to family and friends.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $375K in North Park, San Diego, CA.
Mike was great. He was recommended to us from a friend and he was everything we were looking for. We were first time home buyers and he really walked us through every step from lending to knowledge of San Diego areas to the purchase process.
Our schedule is very hectic and Mike was available at different times and days, very flexible fitting into our schedule. He was great at following up with us, and he stayed on top of getting information about any new property we were interested in.
He was also very patient with us as we were narrowing down exactly what we were looking for.
We are very happy with our new home and would like to thank Mike for his help.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $375K in Northwest, Chula Vista, CA.
Mike Salois assisted in purchase of our house in Chula Vista. We looked at upwards of 100 houses over a many month timespan. Mike was always optimistic in the search and eager to help, always showing up with the hard copy of the listing information . He never got tired of our inability to decide on the right house and was always there when it became time to continue the search. He was very good in dealing with the selling agent and owners. He was always quick to respond on questions about the overall process and about the multiple contract items that were often hard to understand.
The most important attribute that Mike showed was that after the sale was completed, after he had gotten his comission, he continued to assist us with problems related to the sellers unfullfilled promises. Mike got no compensation for continuing this effort, but did it because of his character and proffesionalism.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $250K in La Mesa, CA.
Mike was great, he always made himself available and he consistently showed us property that would interest us, not places that were out of our price range. Great guy to work with and definitely recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell!
We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Bostonia, El Cajon, CA 92021
Called him and he sounded great on the phone. Followed up with him through email, he emailed to say he'd get back to me...never did. I even left another voicemail.
Maybe he got great reviews from people with expensive homes;
our home was a manufactured one in a park, less than 50k, probably just not worth his while.

Please call me or email me again, I don't remember exactly who you are or what it was you were looking for, it is very rare that I fail to follow up with any of my clients.
Give me a call and I will work on helping you find a place.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $350K in Alpine, CA.
Michael represented us extremely well and because of him, my wife and I are HAPPY HOMEOWNERS! Michael goes out of his way to ensure smooth negotiations, transaction and communicate extremely well. My wife and I remember the first day we met, previous agent we had kept becoming a NO SHOW and my lender recommended Michael who was working out at the gym when he got the call that I needed an agent. 20 minutes later we met Michael for the first time coming straight from the gym. PROFESSIONAL he is.
Thanks Michael and you will be referred to any of my friends who look or sell a house in the future.

My wife and I highly recommend Michael Salois. He was very responsive with his phone. He always picked up or if I left a message he would call back shortly. Michael emailed us daily feeds of homes that met our criteria and was happy to include homes we found on our own. Day or night, rain or shine, Michael always made an effort to accommodate our busy schedule. He was able to open doors for us on short notice (even on late weekday evenings). When showing a house he was very professional and made an effort to provide us with all the information on the home. He would also point out potential problems. He often gave us good insight and a few jokes. It's easy to see that Michael loves what he does. Putting in offers was very easy. All documents were signed and sent electronically (no scanning, printing, and writing was necessary). This was a huge time saver and enabled us to make quick offers on homes in a competitive price range. After 6 months with a Realtor who did not work out for us, we found Michael. He did more for us in two weeks than the previous person ever did. I'm a cautious person and do not trust people easily. With that said I don't think anyone could have done a better job than Michael Salois. We are now happy home owners. Thanks Michael!
Mike was one of the most responsive, attentive, and friendly realtors we have ever worked with. He always answered his phone and was available to speak with us at any time.
He listened to our list of needs and desires in a property and was very proactive in showing us properties that met our needs. I received emails from Mike daily with properties that he had found for us to look at. This approach gave us a confident feeling that he took our home purchase seriously.
Mike was very patient and completely understood that we were making a big purchase and that a little hand holding was necessary. I never once felt as if we were a pay check for him, I always felt that we were friends and that he truly cared about getting our family into the perfect home that fit our needs and our budget.
I highly recommend Mike to all of my friends and recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.
