Team reviews

I was an out of town buyer, and had only two days in town to see properties. Michael showed me inventory in my price range and we found a great property that met all of my criteria. Michael handled all of the steps in the buying process flawlessly. Following the close of the sale we continued our relationship to include listing the property for lease while I work on my downsizing process to eventually move to the area. I have complete trust in Michael and can't thank him enough for taking a stressful process and making it as stress free as possible. I highly recommend Michael and I would not hesitate in using his services again!

Bought a home in 2012 in Indian Wells, CA 92210.

We are very satisfied clients of Michael's. We are Canadian citizens, who could only make brief trips to the Palm Springs area: these complications could have been problematic, but Michael's professionalism and expertise easily overcame them. On the first visit, he "boxed the market" for us in terms of geography and price. He used this visit to gain more insight into what we were looking for, and the second visit was very "rifle shot" in nature - we would have been happy with any of the properties shown.

Particular service "gems" provided by Michael: * Counter-offer strategy was aggressive and successful * Handled difficult negotiation re repairs/compensation with excellent results * Made multiple multiple trips to the property in our absence to arrange for service providers' access, operating instructions, and photos.Has repeatedly offered to continue to do so. * Followed up on every detail of the process to ensure paper was exchanged, signatures were obtained, and funds were in the proper hands. Deal closed at least two weeks earlier than the original estimate, largely on the strength of Michael's knowledge, professionalism, and attention to detail. * Some unexpected and very much appreciated services arranged, post closing. * Plus all the "usuals" - market knowledge, airport pickup and drop off, prompt, reliable, easily accessible 7 days/week. And finally - he is a very engaging guy with a broad background and interest in general business and world affairs. We unreservedly recommend Michael Pins' services.

Found a tenant for a Single Family home in Indio, CA.

I highly recommend Michael. He did an outstanding job for me with my property in Indio, CA.He came very well prepared to our first meeting with statistics and research on similar properties and explained all my options and the fees that I would need to pay if I signed the agreement with him, He also gave me a lot of useful advice on getting the home ready for sale or rent and then actually helped me implement the recommendations and fixes. I do not live near the property, so Michael was also very helpful and accommodating in helping through emails and phone calls.

Michael Pins is an excellent agent to work with. He is very knowledgable of the area and was able to help me narrow my search as not to waste time viewing places that did not fit my parameters. I would highly recomend Michael.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $350K in Rancho Mirage, CA.

Michael was able to clearly identify with what I was looking for. He showed me 3 homes, and I put in an offer on the 3rd home within 3 days. He went above and beyond in every aspect after the offer / acceptance, and stayed with me for several weeks after the close, helping me with small details (pool service, maids, electricians, HOA's) etc. I can not say enough about my regards and respect for this gentleman, both as a professional Realator, but as a human being. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone seeking a trusted Realator.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $100K in Rancho Mirage, CA.

Michael Pins is a star. He showed me tremendous commitment and integrity while negotiating a very complicated transaction and I now have my dream condo in Rancho Mirage! Michael is someone to whom you can give your complete trust and know that he is on your side in making a successful purchase. I will definitely only use his services in the future and recommend him to all my friends.

Sold a home in 2009.

Great professional service from Michael Pins and M1 Properties. M1 dealt with a coinciding sale and purchase for me, and despite the inevitable tangles and hiccups made sure that both transactions were completed successfully, on time and with minimum stress and no inconvenience to me. Polite, attentive and helpful throughout, they are the most knowledgable and effective brokerage in the whole of the Palm Springs area. I can't recommend M1 Properties too highly.
