To put it in context, this review comes from someone who currently owns a home and three rental properties so I have dealt with a LOT of Realtors. When I say Michael Valdes is the best, that is saying a lot. My biggest peev is Realtors who are clearly in it for the quick sale. They want to show you a few properties, put in an offer, close quickly and reap a large commission on little effort. If there are any complications (you are particular about what you want and wish to keep looking till you find it, complications with a short-sale, etc), they suddenly stop returning your calls. Michael isn't like that. He is a true professional. He helped me close a short-sale that drug on for over a year and he was every bit as responsive on day 366 as on day 1. He didn't abandon me when the sale got convoluted and, for this, he has earned my deepest respect. He will do whatever he promises you even if it comes at great expense and inconvenience to himself.
I highly recommend Michael Valdes if you are searching for a trustworthy, hard working, knowledgeable real estate agent. We are very pleased with his work!
Mike is the agent you want to represent you both as a buyer and a seller! He has the latest technology and tools geared to make real estate shopping fun and easy. His website contains a wealth of excellent information and is quite impressive with state of the art design and functionality. Mike provides sound advice on the value of a property based on real time comps from recent sales and helps the buyer get the best deal. In representing the seller, he provides the equivalent information to price one's house to sell in a timely manner. He advertises widely, has recorded information for drive by lookers to listen to and learn more about the property, takes excellent photos to present the property attractively. Mike is a serious professional with a good sense of humor and has the patience required to work well with buyers, sellers and other agents to help all strike a fair deal.
Michael Valdes is professional, invested in his clients and efficient! He sold our house in less than two weeks while making the process as easy as possible for us.

Working with Mike was a tremendous experience! His work ethic and professionalism turned a stressful situation into one of the best decisions of my life.
