Ratings & Reviews

Coming from having a great realtor in the state we moved from we weren't expecting to have another great one. Mike has been amazing to work with!! He knows all about the area of SD, and he was tremendously helpful in picking out a home, since he knew so much about how houses are built! We only had 3 days to find a home so he cleared his entire schedule for us. (We were not expecting him to be so helpful!) We highly recommend him to anyone moving to the SD area! If we ever move we will use him again to sell our home!!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $375K in Vista, CA.

We previously tried to buy a home with Mike after he was referred to us. Unfortunately the original deal fell through with absolutely no fault to Mike. Mike was very knowledgeable and patient and because of our experience with him we requested him when we decided to buy a second time. Mike was very patient with us and showed us houses for months before we finally decided on what we wanted to buy. We had some problems that held up the closing process and Mike spent lots of time doing everything he could to help the process. Highly recommended!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $700K in Escondido, CA.

Mike is the BEST realtor we have every worked with while buying a house. He listened to what we were looking for in a house, neighborhood, school system, etc. He respected the limits we set for spending on a house and never tried to make us increase our budget. He has continued to be a wonderful resource to us even after we bought our home (i.e. suggestions on contractors, etc.). The house he found for us became our "home" within a short timeframe because it was such a good fit. My husband and I will use him again if we ever move and would recommend him to anyone looking for a house in the San Diego area including it's suburbs.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $450K in Oceanside, CA.

Michael was very helpful in providing the information we needed in purchasing our new home. Michael went out of his way to find all details of every property that we had sincere interest in. Without Mikael I don't think we could of found a better house than what we purchased.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $400K in Escondido, CA.

My husband and I began our search for our first home a few months ago and I am SO glad Mike was referred to us. Not only did he know every little detail about the area we were searching in, but he truly told us what he thought about it and how it would match up with what we wanted and needed. I was extremely impressed with his experience, knowledge, and willingness to stop what he was doing at any time of the day to show us a property or put in an offer. He took the time to explain every aspect of the home-buying process and didn't mind repeating it a million times to us. In the end, we got the house of our dreams and could never have done it without Mike. Highly recommend!!!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.325M in Poway, CA.

Mike helped me and my wife purchase our first home when we moved to San Diego County in 2008 and our "dream home" in 2013. He has also helped my parents purchase 2 rental homes in the Temecula area since 2008. As a long time resident of the Temecula/San Diego area, he has extensive knowledge about those areas in particular. He knows absolutely everything about the home buying process, so he's great for inexperienced homebuyers like myself and also for people like my parents with a great deal of experience. Our first house was a bank foreclosure, and he helped us deal with the bank as we made our offer and purchased the home in somewhat of a "bidding war." For our second home, we had to make a few offers and counteroffers with the sellers, in addition to asking for several repairs to be made after we had our home inspection. Mike walked us though that process and gave us outstanding advice throughout. In addition, he knows a lot about what is necessary to maintain and repair every aspect of a house (including pools), so he's able to give great advice about what's important to look for when house hunting and asking for repairs from the sellers. He also has great referrals for plumbers, electricians, handymen, carpet cleaners, etc. Mike is friendly, honest, hard-working, and genuine. Definitely not a phony with a fake smile! I always felt like he was an advocate for us. We plan to like in our current home for 20+ years, but we will ABSOLUTELY ask Mike to help us sell our first home when we decide to do so.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Escondido, CA.

Mike attended to all details for the sale and escrow of our property in a professional and timely manner. His services were first rate. Even in a difficult market, Mike persisted through many open houses until an offer was submitted. His offer to help with anything associated with the sale of the home was always appreciated.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $375K in Temecula, CA.

Mike is awesome! We bought and sold our home with Mike's expert help and absolutely couldn't have been happier! Mike has great intuition and very sound judgement. If we ever make it to southern California again, Mike is our realtor! I would not recommend anyone else to help you buy or sell your home!

Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $475K in San Marcos, CA.

Michael Bajema listened to us on how we wanted to sell our home. Having small dogs he understood that we needed qualified buyers only to show our house. He explained and kept us up to date with all comps in our area so that we could agree on a sale price. After we listed our home, he would continue to keep us up to date on the comps so that we could compare how we stood in the market place. Once we found a buyer, Michael was very knowledgeable on the paperwork process and would hand deliver documents to us for signatures. He also took the time to show us other homes in our area so we could get an idea of where we wanted to move. He helped us through the inspections, found us qualified local contractors to assist with repairs, negotiated with the Buyer's realtor and closed our sale. We would highly recommend Michael Bajema.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $300K in Temecula, CA.

A friend recommended Mike to us after a not so good experience with a different realtor. Mike is highly knowledgable and highly motivated made our home buying the easiest thing we could have done. We were very particular in what we wanted. He was patient and never once pushed us towards a home! There are no words to express the gratitude we have for his expertise, selflessness, honesty, forwardness, and all around good sense of humor. He always returned our calls in a timely fashion and if there was such a term as "enjoyable home buying", Mike coined it!!!
