Testimonials


There are many things I can say about the high quality of service I provide to my home seller and home buyer clients, but probably none would be as credible as testimonials from some of my recent clients themselves.


So please take a moment to read the following testimonials. I hope they indicate my experience and integrity, as well as make it clear how much I enjoy helping people with their real estate needs.


I would be happy to email you additional testimonials if you are interested.


 


 


 


Regarding The Monteleone Group, 


My wife and I selected Mike Monteleone from over 25 agents who wanted to list


our house. 


Mike introduced to Variable Range Pricing , which resulted in 35 agents on Caravan Day and


three offers in two days.  An agent came in at full asking price from another firm and second best offer


from an agent within the Monteleone Group. We had reservations concerning conflict of interest if one agency represented both buyer and seller. Mike worked diligently to help us receive the higher price even though his group would lose half of the commission. 


When the lender turned down the first buyer we were grateful for Mike's back up buyer. 


The law required certain repairs and we were extremely impressed with Mike's ability to find workers who responded quickly and low cost helping us to close escrow on schedule. 


The entire transaction was smooth from beginning to end. We cannot say enough


good things about the Monteleone Group. 


Regards,


Jim and Carol Norris

RE: Evergreen lane,       Santa Clarita, Ca 91390 


Here it is in June  and I never dreamed that I would have been relocated so quickly. 


I had been in my home for 38 years in the Valley. I had had my sale, home listed previously, for sale and it was on the market for six months or so.  I did not have one offer, so was content in removing my home from the market.  I was comfortable.  I had decided to take my home off the market until the economy got a little stronger. 


After my home from the market I naturally had many brokers  call with offerings of insurmountable feats, looking for my listing. I was discouraged and rejected all attempts. One evening had a call.  Sounded  good ! I listened to what  was said and agreed to meet with Mike Monteleone to see what he had to offer. I was pleasantly surprised with Mike. Mike arrived at my home, We talked and he was more interest in what  I wanted. He said that he could make it happen. He was professional and well prepared.  He presented me with his portfolio to review before I listed my property. He told me that if I were to list my property with him, I better be ready to move. I always remember those words, inside, wondering what he could do that my other broker couldn't or didn't do. So, I was impressed enough to sign with Mike. I felt that if my home were to sell, it would sell My family was excited, for they had been after me to move closer to them for years. 


My house was listed with the Monteleone Group and I  immediately had potential buyers visiting my property, Well, 1 have to tell you that in six days, my property. I had not one, but two offerings on OMG! I had better start looking for somewhere to live, 1 was stunned, Mikes words echoed in my ears. I was then introduced to Cindy France who was highly recommended and assisted me in locating  my new home in the  area that I wanted to be in. She is professional and quite helpful.  Both she and Mike were extremely helpful and   productive in fulfilling my wants and needs. Everything was up front and taken care of in accordance with escrow and assessor/county requirements. I was e-mailed listings to view and tools to reach my goals. 


To summarize my testimonial,  my home was listed, sold in six days for full price. I ought add, closed within two months, My house closed on April  17 and I was able to purchase the home I currently reside in on April 22. 


I would truly recommend Mike and his staff to anyone who wants to get things done. It was a whirlwind adventure for me and  I am glad that I had the opportunity to meet with and work with this organization. My family is excited  have me near them and I am "Oh So Happy !" to be here. Everybody benefits. 


Very truly yours,


Sue Hogan

Dear Mike,  


Merri and I wanted to write and thank you for the fabulous job you did in selling our Tarzana house in September 2009. You came highly recommended and we were impressed with your initial presentation. We selected you over 3 other brokers because of the depth of your experience and your confident style. As novice sellers, we assumed that you would list the property and represent it professionally. We had no idea what else we were getting when we hired you. You skillfully marketed the property with outstanding pictures and multiple listing contacts. It was only when the offers came in did we appreciate your talents as a deal maker. To sell a property in this market required a deal maker. The buyers had the upper hand due to market conditions, but we had the better realtor. You conscientiously presented every offer and helped us understand the realities of selling our house. When the buyers presented offers, your double credit application process helped us to select the most qualified buyer. A qualified buyer is a must. When the price was agreed upon and the qualified buyer began to present unreasonable repair requests you countered with your own expertise and a contractor who could make only the needed repairs at a reasonable price.. You saved us thousands and saved the deal several times. You were assertive, yet non confrontational with the buyers agent. You managed to keep everything moving to the sale . Upon completion of the sale your recommendation of an escrow company proved equally brilliant. Charlotte helped us through one difficult banking issue which could have messed things up.


 You were always available for our questions and concerns. Even after the house sold we felt comfortable calling you and asking advice regarding a sale of another property . You spent considerable time advising us even though there was no financial incentive to you. We felt truly valued by you every step of the way and beyond. Best of luck and Keep up the good work.

Ladies/Gentlemen,  


At the time I met Mike Monteleone, Suzanne and I had been trying for nearly 12 months to sell our home ourselves for sale by owner with no luck. We interviewed several agents before we hired Mike and selected Mike because he was the most experienced and was positive he could get the maximum value for our incredible house at a time when we were in a less than optimistic real estate market.  He also introduced us to his Variable Range Pricing strategy which we thought was amazing. Because of Mike’s knowledge, sales skills and creativity  plus his presentation, we decided to list our home with him.


Well, our house sold within a week at a price well over the most recent sales. With Mike’s expertise and negotiating skills, we resolved the appraisal and permit problems that presented themselves during the course of the escrow.


 We can’t say enough about Mike Monteleone and the Monteleone Group when it comes to getting the most money for your home in the shortest period of time with the least amount of problems. Mike gets the job done.

Dear Mike:


 


Just a short (and belated) note to thank you and Cindy for selling our condo in Tarzana.  As I told you we met with three brokers before we selected you.  What a great choice we made.  We had an offer above our listing price in 3 days.  Your program of variable pricing worked perfectly for us.


 What is clear is that your many years of experience and your professionalism really paid off for Mollie and I.  The variable pricing was what helped us choose you and what made it possible to receive an offer so quickly.  That is quite an accomplishment on your part, especially in a very soft real estate market.


 Again, our thanks to you and your team for your great service.  You came highly recommended from our friends and I would not hesitate to recommend you to my friends.


 All the best to you and thanks again from Mollie and I.


 


                                                     Sincerely, 


                                                     Gill Epstein


 


 


Dear Mike


 


My entire family and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and The Monteleone Group for all of the hard work and expertise you put into selling our parents home on Don Pio. From the very start you showed us ways to maximize our resources and put just the right touches on our home that had been in the Family many, many years.


You helped us interview, hire and manage service providers to implement all the improvements that you recommended. The best part is that once we put our home on the market we had multiple offers within just a couple of days. You helped us negotiate a great price and we closed a sale in less than 30 days. Wow, what a great job you did in this volatile Real Estate Market and Economy.


Due to your remarkable sales and marketing experience we were able to get a better price in today’s market in the shortest period of time without any problems. By the way, your Variable Range Pricing Program worked out to our advantage as you were able to negotiate the best price for us.


 


Our Family’s home could not have been in better hands than with Mike Monteleone and The Monteleone Group.


 


Thank you so much,


Laura Felberg
