Getting Ready to Buy

We want you to focus on the fun and exciting parts of the process and keep the stressors at bay (or, at least to a minimum). Here’s what to expect when you buy with Michael.



Communication is the backbone to any relationship. Professional included. When times get stressful and questions need to be answered, an un-returned phone call or text are like watching water boil. You’ll always be kept in the loop so you’re never left wondering what’s next.


It’s no secret that negotiation is the key to any successful transaction. With an investment like home buying you want to know that somebody’s got your back. I worked hard to earn my Certified Negotiation Expert designation because I understand the value that brings to the table.

Active Networking

Competition is high when it comes to putting in an offer on a home. Alliance with other agents is often an advantage in these situations. It’s not uncommon for active agents to share information on upcoming listings before they go public. Let’s not underestimate the power of good relationships in this industry.


Unfiltered and honest. I’m not afraid to share my opinion and talk you out of a house. Bad location, hidden expenses, overpriced – I’ll let you know.

Local Knowledge

Knowing the area matters. I’ve created 100+ neighborhood profiles throughout the Conejo Valley.


I keep my cool during the transaction and help you do the same. We’ll leave the drama for others and keep our eyes on the prize.
