Ratings & Reviews

After we agreed to work with the Monta Loma team, I had the fortunate pleasure to meet Mike Sutton. I remember a cold and raining Saturday morning in December and Mike was right on time for our appointment at the house we were planning to sell. A quick walk through and around the home allowed him to size it up. He had already been brief about possible updates from Shelly Potvin (another Monta Loma Team member). Based on that first meeting and the interview with Shelly, I handed over a key to Mike and let him take over - arranging various contractors, inspectors and service workers to come in and provide bids for the update work. Within a three days, Mike provided me with estimates and we launched the effort to get the house readied for sale. That next weekend, I made an early morning stop over to drop off checks for the contractors and the house was already in process of the estate sale. <br/><br/>The next time I saw the home, it was an initial photos for the listing. New interior and exterior paint, new carpet throughout and some other dress ups were completed. All the third party inspections were completed and disclosure statements prepared. Mike was essential in the contractor management and timing the crews. Did I mention some external landscaping as well? It was a complete package.<br/><br/>I was blown away when the actual listing was posted – it was hard to even recognize the old home. I emailed the link to many of my cousins and other relatives and they were as stunned by the fabulous work executed by Mike and the Monta Loma Team.<br/><br/>Again, it was an actual pleasure working with Mike and having the entire project succeed. In addition, my family has two new friends, Mike Sutton and Shelly Potvin. <br/><br/>Thank you again Mike and look forward to future success.

Sold a home in 2014 in Redwood Shores, Redwood City, CA 94065.

Michael did a stellar job prepping and selling my home in Redwood Shores. What I especially appreciated is that he provided detailed sales prep and marketing plans at our first meeting and a turn-key solution throughout the sales process. He provided someone to help me sort and pack for my move and, using his General Contractor background, brought in and managed several trades-people to prepare my home for the market. This really set him apart from the competition. After the sorting and packing was completed, I did not need to do anything else. In fact, I was out of town during the whole rest of the sale process! My home looked great and the buyers thought so too - my home sold in less than 2 weeks. I highly recommend him as he absolutely does much more than just sell your home!  More Less

Bought a home in 2014 in Redwood Shores, Redwood City, CA 94065.

Mike helped us buy our first condo in Redwood City. We met him at an open house and helped us find our home within a month of meeting him. Before working with Mike, we had been working with another agent and looking for homes ourselves for nearly 6 months. Mike ensured that the process went very smoothly and negotiated with the selling agent to ensure we got what we wanted. We even went with his recommended lender, and that helped us close in 15 days. He was patient, helpful and always available for a call. Highly recommend him!  More Less
