I met Mike and Maria thru an online Real Estate website. After that, I listed my "Alexander" home with them, did some price negotiations adjusting to the actual neighboring values, and after that, they sold my house shortly after that.
I would definitely recommend this wonderful couple to find a home for you, or sell your home. They walked me thru the entire process, making the sale much more easy. Thank you, Mike & Maria.
My significant other and I were thrilled to work with Mike. He helped us make our second home purchase a breeze! Mike went out of his way to keep us appraised during ever step. We truly felt like he had our best interests at heart. Even though we were out of town, and were unable to be present during some of the larger milestones we had full faith in Mike, who went out of his way to make the purchase smooth. We would HIGHLY recommend working with Mike if you have the chance. Thank you Mike for helping make our Joshua Tree dream come true!
The professional service I received from Mike cannot be overstated. I was so impressed with my first experience selling a home with him, that I worked with him on two more sales. I live out of state and it didn’t have any impact on the transactions. He communicated with me throughout all the sales, sharing his experience and expertise. Always willing to help in any way, he provided contacts to contractors and handymen in the area. I highly recommend Mike without reservation.
Selling a property whilst the world is going through the Covid epidemic is very difficult. We had setbacks selling the house but Kim was supportive and worked tirelessly to ensure the sale went through. This is the second time we worked with Kim and Mike and will do so again in the future. I wholeheartedly recommend Kim and Mike if you are looking for professional Realtors who understand the local market and who work hard to ensure a sale.
After meeting with Mike there was no doubt I will list my home with him. Shortly thereafter I met Maria and I was absolutely sure that I will be in “the right hands” . Both are extremely professional but also extremely personable . They manage to mix up both so that as a home owner you simply have ZERO worries. Compared to past experiences, I received constant updates on my property, as they popped up. Even while going through the these extreme and unknown changing times this World experienced this past Spring, we all managed to make the BEST of every new GOOD challenge. I can not thank them enough for all they have both done throughout this transaction. I only wish all listing agents would be so open and clear with their clients. Thanks again. Renate Seewald.
We connected with Maria and Mike by chance – and couldn't be happier that we did. We were new to the local area and buying property in California. They guided us through every step – from identifying neighborhoods and showing us homes, to the offer and escrow. I wouldn't hesitate for a second to work with them again.
Mike and Maria Patakas have been an essential part to our first home buying process. Not only did Maria show us some amazing properties, but also gave us a good ammount of history for each neighborhood. The best part, is Mike and Maria gave us their honest opinion, even about some homes we loved. My wife and I would highly recommend the Patakas. Thank you again Maria and Mike!
From our first contact with Gail, we were impressed with her professional demeanor and assistance. We were viewing a condo out of curiosity. Gail did her job the way we liked. We appreciated the fact that she was an information source and understood that it was not her job to sell the property but to make sure the property could sell itself by providing details about it. It was not the property for us. A few months later, Gail came to visit us at our home. It was not a hard sell visit as much as a genial visit, again with any information we requested. That was enough for us to make our decision to sell our home and buy a condo using Gail's service. She was professional in every sense of the word. She was very cautious with all the necessary steps due to the COVID virus. I told Gail, jokingly that I wanted to have the house sold by my birthday (two weeks later). While out to dinner on my birthday we got a call from Gail. She had sold the house. From then on, she assisted us every step of the way with daily calls and/or visits. I admit, now that we are in our new condo I am going through a bit of Gail withdrawal. On the purchasing end, she was a dream and helped with every step. It is with enthusiasm that I can recommend Gail Vasquez as a superior agent for anyone with any real estate need.
Gail was a pleasure to work with! Highly professional, responsive and helpful selling a property long distance. I'm lucky to have had a friend recommend her and I'd happily recommend her to others. Thanks for helping me with this transaction Gail!
Mike and Maria Patakas were referred to us by a Sotheby's realtor in Portland, Oregon to help us find a desert home in the Coachella Valley. We could not have been more fortunate. Mike and Maria are the best! They are first and foremost great listeners, so you get the residence that you want, not one that they think you should have. Second, they communicate promptly and consistently, every single time! Third, they are extremely knowledgeable about the community and residences in the desert and ensure that you don't over offer even when you are carried away by the enthusiasm of the moment! Fourth, they are tireless workers on your behalf - always willing to set up one more house for you to see - regardless of how many you have seen already that day! Fifth, they have a network of people that they can refer you to whether you need financial, inspection, repair, decorating or desert living assistance. We could not have had two more dedicated professionals to help us find our way through the SoCal real estate process and of course, we ended up with exactly the home that we were looking for. That result is what you hope for when you start house hunting and that's what you get with Mike and Maria...and two wonderful people as well. Please call them, you will be happy you did!
