Customer Testimonials

Frank Bierman
" I just wanted to thank you for your exceptional work selling my home during very difficult economic times and a very slow market. The comparable sales you researched were accurate and allowed me to receive a higher sales price than other homes in the area. Your marketing tools, especially your Internet marketing, helped sell my home in half the time it was taking to sell comparable homes in my community. Once sold, you and your team handled all the details of the sale, met with the service people and resolved all my escrow issues with minimum participation from me. You closed my escrow in a little over 3 weeks, which was earlier than the scheduled closing date. You are very professional, responsive and calm. You answered all my questions patiently and I appreciated that. You handled my escrow smoothly, with minimal stress to me. I appreciate your hard work and timely updates, and I would recommend you to anyone who is buying or selling real estate in the South Bay. Thanks again for all your help."

Dean & Janice Bender
"Thank you so much for assisting us in the purchase of our home in the Manhattan Beach tree section. Your knowledge of home values, negotiating skills, follow up, professionalism, positive attitude and sense of humor, made the experience extremely enjoyable. You told us about the So. Bay lifestyle, but until we experienced it for ourselves, we had no idea. We love the healthy environment, the great weather, the choice of activities and, as you said, the appreciation of our home?s value, even in a ?down market?. Thanks for everything. We will gladly refer you to anyone needing a Realtor®."

Wendel & Nikki Jones
"We would like to thank Michael for his services in purchasing our home. Mike Drotman is an expert researcher. He is very passionate and persuasive without being high-pressure. Some of the secrets of his success are that he listens attentively and seems to know exactly what you want even when you are unaware of what you want yourself. He also possesses something of a photographic memory and is quite aware of even the smallest of details. Perhaps not so important is his flair for fashion, whether casual or formal and impeccable neatness. It is difficult to pinpoint exactly what makes him the success he is. He is obviously a workaholic, creative and cordial. The best thing about him is that he insists that you be very happy and satisfied with whatever property you buy. I was impressed by the fact that the property we purchased was listed by another real estate company, but Mike showed us the best deals on the market."

Bob & Merle Wybenga
"I'd like to share our experience with Michael Drotman. When you aren't familiar with an area where you need to buy property, you have to be able to rely on your agent and most of all TRUST in his judgment. It was a real pleasure for us to work with Mike because he analyzed our needs & desires. He was able to match us up with exactly what we had set our sights on. We now have our 12 acre thoroughbred horse rescue facility and it serves our purpose and filled our dreams. We wholeheartedly recommend Michael Drotman as a Real Estate Agent and consider him a friend. "

Steve & Marina Braff
"My wife and I saw an interesting home off the beaten path. Mike Drotman was the listing agent. On a whim I gave him a call. From our first conversation I knew that Mike would be our agent. His warmth, energy, attention to detail and follow up on my many questions and concerns, made what could have been a trying time - - purchasing a new home while working to sell my old home - - a positive experience. Upon my referral, Mike has worked with many of my friends to both sell and buy them homes at good prices in a short time. Mike knows and loves his business. He cares about his clients. Call him."

Rick & Margaret Fila & Family
"Thank you for helping us purchase our first home. Your willingness, cheerfulness and positive attitude are some of the qualities (why) we wanted you as our Realtor. We knew it was going to be quite a task, but (we) found out you thrive on diverse challenges. Your total dedication on finding the perfect house for our family made it easy moving from Washington State. Thank you once again for your leadership and professional knowledge."

Wendy Sond
"Michael Drotman was referred to my husband and me by a friend. She said he was responsive, knowledgeable and fun to work with - - - and she was right. Mike found my friend and her family a great home value in a nice area, and sold their home promptly to avoid double payments. Mike worked diligently to find us a home, and 9 months later, found a home and an investment property for my mother-in-law as well. We've been very happy with our dealings with Mike, and I highly recommend calling him if you're thinking about buying or selling real estate."

Judy & Sheila Dwyer
"A note to thank you so very much for all your help in finding us a new home. We are really pleased with it. We just can't believe how you knocked yourself out for us - - and always so cheerful. I don't know how many houses we looked at before we found the right one - - and it wasn't as though we were buying a million dollar estate. We honestly think it was due to you that the listing agent decided in our favor."

"A Walk Down Memory Lane

I knew Michael long before he purchased his first home in 1979. He rented the home two days after closing escrow, to a couple who remained his tenants for 9 ˝ years - - - when he sold the property. Michael has been an investment property owner for the 30+ years since, and has personally bought and sold numerous homes since then. He was the owner/builder of 5 custom homes in Hermosa Beach, CA., all of which he sold himself; and he owned a very successful business, which he also sold himself. Michael has personally experienced many aspects of real estate: buying (homes and land), selling (homes, building projects, land), building/developing property and owning investment property - - - all with his own hard-earned money at stake. As a professional Realtor representing other people buying and selling homes, Michael is a member of the RE/MAX Hall of Fame. He is a multi-million dollar, top-producing agent who has received numerous real estate awards. He has over 34 years of real estate marketing, and contract negotiating experience, and several unique marketing tools, which he puts to work for other people who list their property with him. His marketing strategy targets the Internet. Michael's professional, experienced staff, assures the smooth handling of the escrows. So, if you, or someone you know, are thinking about BUYING or SELLING Homes, Income/Investment Property, or Building Projects - - - call him today. I consider Michael the finest real estate agent in the United States - - - Possibly the World!!!"
