Testimonials for Michael-Edward Cruz
Mike has helped me with my investment properties in advertising, showing, screening and finding the right tenant to fill my vacancies. He understands the market very well and has been very successful in finding good qualified tenants in a timely fashion with very little down time. I would recommend Mike to other prospective buyers, sellers and other investors alike.
Mike was a pleasure to work with every step of the way. He demonstrated a professional approach from our first meeting to the closing and took time to explain everything in detail, making sure that all the facts were known and explored, good and bad. He was responsive, well prepared, dedicated, hardworking, and easy to work with. His excellent negotiations skills and expertise with short sales was the key to our successful short sale. We could not have found a better agent and we would recommend him highly to anyone buying or selling property!
Michael was a really good Sales rep I have asked for other Real Estate question over the years and have recommended him to family. They all love the service because of the knowledge, experience and help he gives even with no pressure to list or be retained as an agent. He takes quality pictures and his time to get the job done right.
Always available to answer questions. Returned calls promptly. He acted as if we were the only ones he was serving.
Displayed initiative to solve problems (i.e. We received favorable settlement in a line-item dispute with Escrow after he intervened on our behalf.
Personally assumed certain expenses to speed the sale through. Found and pointed out errors in paperwork.
Appraised us of the best offers and showed us why we should avoid the pitfalls of certain offers that seemed advantageous on the surface. Explained the fine points in the contracts so we'd understand the legalese.
In summary, we felt very confident selling the home with Michael representing us.

Michael was great - very direct, honest, no feeling of pressure at all. A great agent who knows his properties! He found a property that he knew we would love, facilitated all of the rental terms and requests that we had for the owner regarding rental of the property and followed up with us several times from signing of lease, to requested work completed, to day before move in and then again after move!
Michael was the key to putting my wife and I into our first home together. He was extremely knowledgeable and helpful through every step of the home buying process from beginning to end. He was always available to answer the multitude of questions we had and took the time to make sure that we understood everything we signed. He took the stress out of buying a first home! We would highly recommend him to anyone considering buying their first, second, third, fourth, or fifth…(get my point) home. Michael assembled the perfect team to meet the seller’s fast paced schedule and was able to secure us closing credits during the process! What a negotiator! I think it’s safe to say that my wife and I would still be looking for a home if it wasn’t for Michael.
He is a very professional person in his business, proactive in every way in order to give the client the best results of the negotiation. Also he knows very well the area of Orange County, which is very helpful for the client in order to get the best deal when you are going to buy a home.
