Quiero compartir mi historia al comprar la casa ubicada en Desert Hot Springs. Mi esposo y yo decidimos comprar casa en esta area despues de vivir 25 anos en Downey Ca. La compania donde mis esposo presta sus servicios se movio a Palm Desert. Despues de analizar las opciones decidimos que seria bueno buscar una nueva area tranquila y diferente . empece a buscar en Internet donde encontre ZipRealty.com donde Mike Houston me contacto y le expuse mis necesidades. Despues de varias visitas a diferentes casa nos sentimos frustrados ya que algunas tenian lo que buscabamos pero el precio era alto,otras necesitaban arreglos, o el vecindario no era lo que buscabamos pero Mike seguia en la busqueda ya que el sabia lo que deseabamos obtener . Hace 2 meses Mike me llamo para darme la noticia que habia encontrado la casa ideal para nosotros y asi fue sin dudarlo y confiando en Mike le dimos la autorizacion y empezo la compra de la casa. Ya con la oferta aceptada fui a verla y comprobe que Mike sabia lo que nosotros buscabamos . El Sabado 31. de Junio 2014 recibimos las llaves de nuestra casa y ahora vemos que valio la pena confiar y esperar a Mike Houston por esta razon lo recomiendo a todos mis familiares amigos o quien este en busqueda de un Nuevo Hogar GRACIAS MIKE de parte de toda mi familia espero que sigas hacienda mas amigos y corazones felices. mep

We found Michael to be the perfect agent for us. We came in with a fair amount of knowledge of the area and had even selected a few places to visit before our first meeting. Michael hit the ground running with our needs and wants in mind. He was always on time for our meetings. And his turnaround time on all of the documents was same day. Michael weighed in from time to time - but again - his insights were welcome. When one of our target properties lowered its price, Michael moved quickly allowing us to make an offer before anyone else could. We are very happy with our new home.

Mike was fantastic, starting from our initial phone call all the way to close, We are non US purchasers and Mike was there guiding us through all the hoops both during our search right through the sale. If Mike didn't have the answer to our question he found out. Truthfully I have never had a better agent! Going above and beyond in every aspect of our purchase.

I would refer Mike to anyone and would strongly encourage others to use his service. He will go the extra mile to make sure you get the property that best suits your needs, and its because of his committment we now have our home. You can not go wrong when you hire Mike to assist you in your search both before and after you purchase. He continues to be a valuable resource and aid to us while we set up our property. I cannot say enought good words about Mikes service.

Michael has perfected a combination of professionalism and friendliness. He is always a phone call away to answer any question. Michael was able to sell my mother's house in a week for more than we expected. He listened to what was important to us and delivered more than we expected. He did a great job of dealing with the buyer's realtor and some unreasonable expectations from the buyer. I would recommend him highly.

Mike was an exceptional realtor to deal with. We were only in Palm Springs for a short vacation. We met up with Mike with thoughts of purchasing vacation home. In one week, he showed us several homes trying to find one to meet all of our needs. He found us the perfect vacation home! We put in an offer right away but were some distance apart from the seller in price. Mike went the extra mile in negotiating with the seller. We ended up with our new home and both buyer and seller were happy! Thanks for everything Mike!

After almost a year of frustration,we are changing our review of Mike to one star. He took advantage of us while we were in escrow and on vacation. He told us certain things were handled, that were not. When we discovered the discrepancies he became unresponsive and dodged us for months.We finally took it with Zip who were equally unhelpful. This guy is everything you fear in a real estate agent. Completely dishonest.
Response from Michael

Jennifer, I am sorry you feel that way. I assure you it was not my intent to take advantage of you in any way. I realize you have had issues with the home you purchased,as it was built in the 1950's. I made numerous calls to the seller and the warranty company on your behalf during, before and after the close. I was successful in getting the seller to do additional work after the close of escrow. Additionally I was able to get the warranty company to issue a check for work after the claim was denied. I am not sure what more I could have done. I also believe the home was a wise purchase as a similar home less than 1/4 mile from yours sold for $190,000 more than you paid 10 months ago. Best to you and Mark.

Michael is a true professional, with a high level of integrity and Real Estate Agents at-large should learn from him.

In this transaction Michael has shown exquisite negotiation skills, as well as consequential understanding of our challenges given the precarious conditions of the asset.

Michael is the most qualified Real Estate professional I have ever had the pleasure to work with. His understanding of business and economics fundamentals facilitates the formulation of a strategy suitable to maneuver under any circumstance. As I told Michael several times, we couldn???t have done it without him.
