Buying! Selling! We did both with Mike and Maria. They were dedicated to making all transactions go smoothly. They assessed the market accurately and with great finesse. We purchased a new home quickly; then we sold a home within days. Response time to our many questions was immediate. Mike and Maria have a wealth of knowledge, so processing the many forms, which could have been daunting, went smoothly. Their entire team is cheerful and helpful, as well as competent. We were fortunate to have Mike and Maria as our agents. We highly recommend them.
We had an awesome experience with Mike and Maria as our buying agents. They really went above and beyond our expectations as real estate agents. They were both very attentive and responsive to any needs or questions we had. In today's competitive market Mike and Maria's experience proved to be critical as they provided us with excellent recommendations when submitting offers. They prepared very detailed and organized showings for us and catered to our busy schedules. After having our bid accepted, they guided us through the escrow process quickly and with ease. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
Mike was awesome! I'm a stickler for great service and Mike delivered. Not only was he efficient but we appreciated his candor and not settling until we had our house with the right terms. I'd definitely recommend Desert Sotheby and we wouldn't hesitate to use Mike again!
We engaged Mike Patakas to sell our Pied a Terre in Palm Springs, and we could not have asked for a better experience. Mike is an exceptional professional. My partner and I were very anxious about the selling process since we lived an eight-hour drive from the property. However, from the moment we met Mike, we were instantly put at ease by his professionalism and personableness. Provided excellent information and advice and explained everything in a way that was easy to understand.
Mike made the selling process incredibly easy and took extra steps, like having a professional with experience in working with mid-century modern properties come and give us staging tips and having professional photographs taken. When we saw our listing, we were so impressed that we were a bit saddened to sell our piece of Palm Springs iconic mid-century modern aesthetic. His hard work and knowledge of the area paid off - our listing looked amazing and knocked out the competition.
He kept us informed throughout the whole process, from pre-listing to the close of escrow, and was very responsive to our email inquiries. When I had the occasion to call him, he always picked up, and the calls never went to voicemail.
The service provided by him and his colleagues was 10+ out of 10. I would not hesitate to work with Mike again and will definitely recommend him to friends and family.
The Dynamic Trio of Mike, Maria Patakas & Nick Jarman are the best of the best realtors here in Palm Springs. We consider ourselves very fortune to have this team represent us. With their innovative ideas, endless enthusiasm, professionalism and expert knowledge. This team turned our difficult selling situation into a win-win for all parties. They truly exceeded our expectations.
So professional, friendly, and are great realtors. Hope to work with them one day soon!
I have known Mike and Maria for many years. I have the utmost respect for them. They are so knowledgeable and also fun to work with. I can't imagine working with anyone else to buy or sell my home.
I had the pleasure of working with Mike and Maria in the previous years and I must say it was an outstanding experience from start to finish. As a real estate agent myself, I recognize and appreciate the level of professionalism and expertise that Mike and Maria has demonstrated throughout the entire process. Mike and Maria was very patient and promptly answered all my client's questions. I am looking forward to working with them again in the future.
Have used Mike & Maria a couple of times over the last 7 years to buy and sell homes. They have always been very professional, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with.
Not only does this team know their business inside and out, they flat out get results for their clients.
