Home buyer in Albany
I've worked with Michael for 5 years on and off. Through it all, despite the misses, he is a true professional. A realtor worthy of utmost honesty and integrity. Thanks Mike! We finally closed!!
Nancy B.
Condo buyer in Berkeley
I have purchased 4 homes in the past, this was my 5th purchase and first time in California. After getting over sticker shock, Michael was very helpful and reassuring. He definitely knows real estate in the Oakland/Berkeley area! We had to close on the property quickly and Michael was up to the task. (You could tell this was not his first time around the rodeo!)
Ravi K.
Townhome buyer in Oakland
Michael is the ultimate agent anyone can ever ask for. We are first time homebuyers who had a bad experience with another agent and from the moment we met Michael, he put us at ease and never once pushed us to do something that we did not want. We wrote close to 10 offers and there were times when Michael actually asked us to walk away from a couple of ones because after 6 months, he completely understood what we wanted and what we should get. When it came to the house we really wanted to go after, he really stepped up and held our hand throughout the 40days that it took to close it out. His ability to communicate real time, his availability and his skill to negotiate with the sellers agents & lenders was the only reason we could get our house. We suggest Michael to anyone who wants a no non-sense, always responsive agent who will not push you but work for you and truly get the house that you want! Highly recommend! I am looking forward to working with Michael again.

Home buyer in Oakland
I purchased our first investment property with Michael over 2 years ago after looking for one year and bidding on many, many properties. We are now attempting to purchase another home and Michael was our first choice for a realtor. As an investment purchaser, our needs and price point are very different than the owner occupied buyer. Michael is there when we need him to open a door, write an offer, etc. However, he never pressures us on price, what we want, etc. He knows and appreciates very well that we buy what is right for us to purchase.

Condo buyer in Oakland
Michael helped us deal with some pretty unusual circumstances on a building that was no Fannie approved and required special negotiating and financing.
Kim K.
Prospective buyer
Responds quickly but gets frustrated very easily when asked for help. Does not want to help with any other websites that have listings that are not on Zip. Felt like he only wanted to help to make a buck. Wasn't helpful looking for potential properties. He left a very unprofessional message and email.
Response from Michael
Thank you for the feedback, although we actually never met in person. You called me and said you were not yet Pre-Approved for a loan, so I gave you a lender referral. And then you also asked me for an estimate of what your parent's home would sell for and I provided that without ever seeing the property. And then you asked me to research non-active properties you had seen on less reliable websites (without specific addresses), to which I suggested you use our website which only shows active listings, which I guess is too onerous. For that, I will not apologize. I guess you can't please every anonomous client. My suggestion is to meet me first before passing judgement.
Pirun H.
Condo buyer in Oakland
I am a first-time buyer who happen to fall in the short sale purgatory. I am considered myselft lucky, having Mike as my Realtor. With his vast knowledge, responsivness and dedication, I was able to purchase my first home on the best term I could possibly find!
Kenneth C.
Home buyer in Pinole
Micheal is very nice person to work with. I would give him a 5 plus stars.
Shea C.
Home buyer in El Sobrante
Mike has been a 5 star (plus!) realtor, and I can not say enough good things about him! He showed incredible follow through and constant communication throughout the entire process and always made sure we understood what was happening and why. I should add that we had a very "tricky" sale, involving many emotional ups and downs that were out of our control, and he handled the entire process with professionalism, courtesy, and patience. He is not "a pushy salesman," he is a true professional with your best interests in mind, he will give you an honest and expert opinion, and he is always there for you when you need him. Anyone with him in their corner is already a few steps ahead of the rest- he is just that good- and he will be the only person I refer my friends to! (Thanks, Mike!!)

Michael has shown great patience while being highly professional, and had become a great friend over the past years during our hunt for the right home.

Michael was always very prompt, courteous, and helpful. His knowledge and thoroughness expedited the transaction and made us feel at ease as he constantly went above and beyond to help us with whatever transpired.
Kurt W.
Home buyer in Oakland
Michael was an excellent agent throughout the entire process and I highly and unconditionally recommend him to anyone looking for a house in the Bay Area. He patiently showed me as many houses as I requested, at times that suited me, and he quickly understood what I was looking for. He was of great help and support during the offering and negotiating phase, and he was knowledgeable and resolute in the many things that have to happen while the house purchase was in escrow.
Lanny B.
Prospective buyer
Mike has accompanied my wife and I on at least two dozen house visits in the past two years, and has been both helpful and patient as we pursue our home search. In the time we've been working with Mike he has really gotten to know the area in which we are looking and we trust his instincts and judgment when we view properties with him. We hope to make an offer on a house soon, and Mike's our man! A very professional agent, I'd recommend Mike Anderson to very, very highly.

Home buyer in Oakland
Mike is the best. We worked with Mike for 6 months before finding our first home and he was a great ally. After finding our our home we ran into some difficulties with the lender that threatened to kill the deal. Mike helped us weather the storm and kept working hard to come up with alternative solutions to make the deal work. Mike was great throughout the closing process and kept reassuring us that everything would be ok. We can highly recommend Mike and the team at ZipRealty.

Michael was wonderful - funny, friendly, and more than willing to spend countless hours looking at countless houses until we found the one we bought. We would recommend him to anybody looking to buy a property!

Home buyer in Oakland
Having worked with other real estate agents in the past, even terminating a relationship with another zip realtor because of their lack of honesty, we had reservations at first. Michael Anderson was incredible. Not only was he thorough and diligent with every step pf the process, he advocated for us in ways that we hadn't expected. He knew the area helped us put together a strong offer and was always available to answer questions, look up additional data, or even meet us at the property so that we could make plans for the renovation.

Jin K.
Home buyer in Pinole
one sentence which would summarize michael anderson/ziprealty is "he was on my side." He was supportive, always available and there were no surprises (because he took care of the issues before they became a problem). I have highly recommended michael/ziprealty to my friends and family.

Condo buyer in Oakland
He dropped the ball a couple of times which ended up costing me more money. He didn't seem to do much "work" during the house hunting phase. He only actually seemed to "work" when it came to writing up an offer and getting the inspections done. I had to remind him of other things to be done.
Response from Michael
I was really surprised by this review. As I recall, I actually saved this client $10,000 in a price reduction. I also believe my greatest value is writing offers and making sure all due diligence is performed properly after an offer is accepted. I believe that with our website's tools, Buyers have the control and tell me which homes they want to see, saving time and effort for all involved.

Michael was AMAZING!!! We will gladly pass his name, as well as ZipRealty, to our friends and family that are in need of a realtor. THANKS MIKE!!
Charles L.
Home buyer in Castro Valley
He is a little bit too aggresive on the offer, and leaving us in a small time frame to work with.
Response from Michael
Thank you for your feedback, Charles, and your 4 Star Rating.

Michael was great to work with. He responded promptly to questions and clearly explained most things. We were disappointed that although we had shown much concern for making sure that we would be able to stay in our sold home until escrow closed on our new home, we ended up having to move out and live in hotel for 3 days. Not horrible, but nt easy with two small kids, a dog, and a cat. I know that this was not all wthin Michael's control, but from the very begnning of the process we brought this up, and had hoped that he would be able to make a cleaner tranfser happen.
Response from Michael
I apologize, sometimes when selling a home, we have to accommodate the Buyer to make sure the deal closes escrow. Thank you for the 4 Stars.
