Home buyer in Highland
Michael was very helpful in finding a home for myself. He was very patient with me and gave great advice. I am a first time buyer and he was able to fill me in on how the whole process goes. I highly recommend his services.

After buying homes in two different states, I think I can easily say that working with Michael is an unparalleled experience. He is beyond knowledgable and gives terrific advice about properties, etc. At the same time, he also listens carefully to what his client wants. He's incredibly efficient (in fact, he managed to expedite a number of tricky transactions for me while I was out of the country). He was continually available, always on the ball and anticipating next steps, so that there was never a lag. And finally, he remained available even after the purchase. Michael is a terrific real estate agent, and he's also a wonderful human being, who makes the high-stakes process of buying/selling a house one that you can do with confidence. I'd use his services again in a heartbeat.
Home buyer in La Quinta
It was a pleasure working with Michael Houston. We looked at many, many houses, over several months, before I finally decided on one. He was very patient and professional. He helped with every step of the home buying process and was quick to keep me informed during the negotiations. After closing he was helpful by providing contacts for home repairs and improvements. He shared his local knowledge regarding attractions and activities in the desert area. Buying a home is always stressful but Michael made the whole process as painless as possible. If I were to ever buy or sell another home, Michael would be my first choice for realtor.

Michael is an ACE on point... You cannot go wrong with his assistance!
Home buyer in Beaumont
Mike is AWESOME! From the first time we spoke to the close of escrow Mike was there. He became my friend! His selfless dedication to his trade showed through by answering all my calls and texts no matter the time of day, 6:00 am or 10:30 at night. He had no problems showing me 5 or 6 houses a day and then going back 3 days later and showing me the same ones again. His advise, knowledge, humor, communication skills are fantastic... The best home shopping and buying experience I have had. Make Mike your realtor today! And Mike, thanks again bud! You rock! See you at the house warming party!!!
Home buyer in Desert Hot Springs
I couldn't respect or appreciate Michael any more than I do. I live in Nevada and had to negotiate this buying of a home in California long distance. Michael made it all so easy even for someone like me with no knowledge of the processes. He is accessible by phone, text, email. I was always able to reach him with my questions/concerns in a timely way. And equally importantly, Michael treated me kindly, patiently, professionally. Because I checked all the boxes below regarding "Michael's Strengths", I don't want it to appear that I didn't carefully consider each item. He honestly is excellent in each of those areas. Bottom line: if you are considering acquiring a realtor's services, you will be beyond satisfied; you'll be happy and grateful to have Michael working with/for you.
Home seller in Upland
Mike was a wonderful realtor for us. He was very professional and also very warm and friendly. He was always responsive to our cares, concerns, texts, e-mails, phone calls, etc. immediately.

Home buyer in Desert Hot Springs
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
Condo buyer in Palm Desert
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.
Condo buyer in Palm Desert
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.
Home buyer in Desert Hot Springs
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.
Home seller in Indio
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.
Home buyer in Desert Hot Springs
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!
Home buyer in Palm Springs
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.
Home buyer in Desert Hot Springs
Mikes smile drew my wife & I in. We were totally impressed with his work ethic and professionalism. He helped us through the purchase and sale of our home in Mission Lakes CC. We would recommend him to anyone. Dave and Karen
Home buyer in Indio
Mike is the consumate agent. He is there at every step of the process making sure that the transaction gets done (usually to my favor). This is the fourth transaction I have had with Michael.
Mike has handled three purchases for me. In each transaction, he was a strong advocate for me. I highly recommend him.

Since this was the first home I have purchased on my own, I needed some hand holding. Mike understood my needs in a home and helped me find just the right one at a price that suits me.

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.

Michael was great! We have recommended him to three other couples/friends that are looking for homes in the Palm Springs area. What better way to say thanks then to spread the word about his great service.

Mike could not have been more helpful, he was always one step ahead of us in what we needed.
Home buyer in Indio
We enjoyed working with Mike. He knows his stuff. From start to finish, he was watching every step. When things were moving slow, he got on peoples butts, to keep the procrss moving. We were glad he was on our side.

He worked very hard for us. We would work with him again.
