Orange County, CA Home Buyer's Information and Testimonials
"We feel fortunate to have had such a professional and well-organized agent in the purchase of our condo. Mike's personal experience and knowledge of the individual neighborhoods in Huntington Beach expediated our long-distance real estate search. Mike was diligent in helping us find a condo which met all of our family's needs. We appreciate all of his help, and we highly recommend him to anyone who is considering relocating to the area." - Bob & Gina Holtz
Mr. Stankewich was extremely knowledgable, professional and hard working during all phases of both our sales and purchasing transactions. He responded to the myriad questions and requests that we made in a very timely and thorough manner. I would recommend Mr. Stankewich to any client to assist them with either a home sale or purchase. Dwight and Sanja Apodac, Anaheim Hills (formally of Garden Grove), 2006
This testimonial is on behalf of Mike Stankewich. Mike has assisted us greatly in purchasing our new home in Laguna Niguel, California. Mike Stankewich is currently with ZipRealty. He has his own website that is very informative not only eith regard to real estate issues. His website also includes information within areas of Orange County such as schools, beaches, maps, events, etc. Mike Stankewich is very diligent. He is a conservative professional and maintains a high level of integrity. Mike thinks of everything ahead of time and moves forward to have matters handled in a timely manner. Mike has allowed our purchase of our new home to be a very simple process. And to think that we first met Mike in front of another home for sale in Huntington Beach, that he was showing to other clients. If and when we look to sell our home or purchase in the future, we will definitely choose Mike Stankewich as our Realtor®. Gina, Terry, Quinn, Rufus, and Max
"What a website and what professional people. When I contacted Mike and his team about referring business out to them because they were in the top 5% of their market I expected to get a slow response, but instead they responded to me quickly with immediate satisfying results. Then I realized that there was a reason why they were in the top 5%. Service came first to them and it seems that it will always be. I definately recommend their services to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!" - Jordan Hashem
"Mike Stankewich sold our home for the highest price in the neighborhood. We were afraid to list it over $800,000, however he sold it for full list price of $814,900 in only 2 days. Great Realtor! Knowledgable, trustworthly, integrity, education, and fantastic negotiating skills. You must try him." - Seller
"I finally found a good agent. After months of calling I was fed up with with several real estate companies in Huntington Beach. They must employ anyone who can walk and talk. What poor examples for their company. They are the largest companies in Huntington Beach so it did not seem to make sense to talk to anyone else. Finally I called and got in touch with Mike Stankewich. What a difference! He knew what he was talking about, knew a lot about properties that where available, and actually got my attention. I worked with him and loved his website. These tools are invaluable. However I am most impressed with his real estate skills, which got me my new home." - Buyer
Mike was awesome! Mike was professional, very knowledgeable about the neighborhoods, community and properties in the Huntington Beach area. His experience simplified and reduced our search time tremendously. Since we were driving 250 miles one way each time we came to look at property, Mike was very flexible in accomodating his schedule to meet our needs. Mike's intelligence and commitment to his profession guided us to selecting a condo which we will enjoy in the present as a vacation home for our family and eventually our retirement home. I would definately refer Mike to our family and friends, and we know from experience what an asset he is to your company. Sincerely, Gina Brougham and Robert Holtz
