Knowledgeable, Integrity, and a hardworking ethic describe Mickey McBratney. We were referred to Mickey by a friend and consider him a great ‘find’ in an area full of real estate agents. We have executed many real estate transitions in our careers and consider Mickey the best agent we have met or used.
We have read the other reviews on this website and don’t want to repeat what they said but will say that they describe our experiences also. Mickey is the ultimate professional.
One area not addressed by the other reviewers was cancelation of a contract. While not done often the ability to so when necessary is an important area for your agent to understand. We entered into a contract that we had to cancel due to many problems exposed during the inspection; Mickey was prepared and his expertise was evident is all areas of the contract cancellation. I am sure this was due to his continually keeping up with the changing real estate laws, processes, and trends with seminars and continuing education programs.
You can’t go wrong with Mickey, knowledgeable, honest, and hardworking---he will take care of you!

I have had the opportunity to work with Mickey McBratney since he first launched his career in real estate. At that point in time, his knowledge of the marketplace, client service and promotion in this sphere were impressive. We were both local [Manhattan Beach, CA] and it made sense to work with him. In the years that have passed, I have placed so much trust in Mickey that I have recommended him to work with, and represent, my parents, who were quite active in real estate. His service as a guide, business consultant and industry professional was very much appreciated by my parents, and proved to be a positive relationship.
A few years ago, I needed someone to help my son and his wife in finding their first home in Boston. Mickey reached out to his extensive network and found someone who was a perfect match for them. This person was "almost" as impressive as Mickey and certainly understood the process and the pain involved in one's first view of this world, and literally took my son and daughter-in-law by the hand and walked them down the road to becoming homeowners in a pain-free manner. Mickey performed due diligence on our kids needs, and then found the exact match required to take care of them. I can not thank him enough!
I am now working with Mickey in regards to a rental property that I have. Because I have never experienced this part of the real estate industry, Mickey has served as an agent of education, a mentor and guide to my many questions, and his "habit" of promptly returning calls and emails is truly worth mentioning.
To sum it up: Mickey is trusted enough for me to have recommended him to my parents; to have asked him to take care of my son and daughter-in-law on the other side of the country: and to have helped me in my first, small steps into his world to now being a mentor and offering professional counsel, as I graduate into property management and seasonal rentals. Each time, that smile on his face never dims and his desire to help never falters.
If you need a real estate professional who you can trust, who is honest and who so enjoys what he does that its contagious - call Mickey McBratney.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $925K in Cardiff By The Sea, CA.
Mickey is the best. I called Mikey to handle my listing and he extremely responsive. We used his expert consultant to stage the home, got it listed on MLS, and had an offer within one week. Incredible. He really knows the area and has the contacts to get it shown. His marketing is amazing. He was masterful in the negotiation and all the closing closing details. The entire process took less than a month!
Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $1.025M in Carmel Valley, San Diego, CA.
Mickey McBratney is awesome! We bought and sold our house in San Diego from Mickey. We've moved to several states in the western U.S. and recently relocated to the L.A. area from San Diego due to job opportunities. We've experienced a number of real estate transactions both selling and buying. Mickey is the best realtor that we've encountered over 35 years of transactions. He's always up to date with what's going on in the market and continually educates himself with the latest training and certifications. His experience has provided him the expertise in determining market value for selling a house. He also has good negotiation skills benefiting a buyer or seller.
If you want a realtor who advocates for you as a buyer or seller, communicates with you regularly, is knowledgeable about the local market and follows through very efficiently enabling a smoother transaction, contact Mickey McBratney.
Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $1.275M in Del Mar, CA.
My experience with Mickey as my Listing Agent was highly positive. He exhibited thorough knowledge of all I needed to do for my sale, in a written format, and also a listing of recommendations prior to the listing along with a detailed description of things I needed to do subsequent to the sale and move. I found him to be honest about the poor prospects of a quick sale, as we were in a down market in November, 2010. He took excellent pictures of my entire home for the virtual tour that was posted on the Internet, along with an excellent description of the home and its location. After only about three days of its listing, I received five offers at and above the listing price. Mickey was extremely helpful to me in the escrow process with all the ensuing paperwork (which I had never done before, this being the only home I had ever owned).
The entire process went very smoothly, much to my surprise and pleasure, and I have recommended Mickey to others.
Therefore, I am recommending Mickey to Zillow for any position for which you are considering for him.
