Bio

 

This is what I believe

I believe in serving. I believe that helping others to achieve their goals is the key to my success. In my business career, I have worked with people from all walks of life, and it's my passionate commitment to their needs that keeps them coming back.

Here is my process

I listen, ask questions, and seek to understand the needs of my clients. My goal is to provide relevant information so clients can make informed decisions. My services include developing and executing marketing plans, relentlessly pursuing homes on the market, determining market value, contract negotiation, escrow management, re-location services, and the many other aspects of a successful real estate relationship.

Here is my story

I grew up in San Jose, CA in a wonderfully middle class family. I had two loving parents that drove me to excel at whatever I chose to do. I had the good fortune to be a decent football player and landed a football scholarship to the University of California at Berkeley - Go Bears! After college I began a 20 year career with Macy's. Up the corporate ladder I climbed moving all over the state. I managed Macy's stores in Santa Rosa, Northridge, San Diego, and Fairfield. I was a retail warrior. Along the way I had the good fortune to meet my wife Sue, and we have a daughter named Samantha. After moving back to Northern California and settling in El Dorado Hills, it was time to let go of the corporate career and focus more on my family. I chose to work in Real Estate. It has been a great fit for my personality and my commitment to serve.

I worked with Michael Reed to purchase my home several years ago so I already knew he would be an excellent representative to sell my home. The process was very easy. Michael pays attention to detail and does an excellent job of explaining everything during each step in the process. He is also very good with communication and always responds promptly. I highly recommend Michael for any sale or purchase.

Michael Reed did an amazing job as our agent for this listing/sale. Over the years we have worked with many agents on both purchases and sales so we knew what to expect in the process, and Michael far exceeded all of our expectations and was instrumental in making the process go very efficiently and smooth for both buyer and seller which was key in getting the deal done. Most any agent can list or show property, but few agents really posses the key attributes that can make both buyer and seller feel comfortable in a deal, and that their concerns are being properly considered and addressed in both a creative and responsible way. Michael cares deeply about his clients and what is in the clients best interest and is always looking out for better ways to help both buyer and seller win in every deal. In an environment where premium pricing and high emotions can challenge dealmakers, Michael far exceeds expectations and the competition and is a credit to his industry. We honestly look forward to working with Michael again in the future and strongly recommend him to others.

Michael was refereed to me by my sister and I had met him when she was looking for a Home to purchase. When It came time for me to make my Home purchase I just call Michael without a second thought. Michael is simply Great to work with. He went above and beyond and brought up topics for discussion we had not thought about. He always picked up my call no matter what time of the day. Really appreciated that knowing that he was also very busy. Michael scheduled free estimates for 2 potential issues ... on his own ... that came out of Inspections. We used that information to obtain $6600 credit from the seller and that was all because of Michael being proactive. Post closing also he offered to help with Picking the Keys and helping out during our move. I would HIGHLY... HIGHLY recommend Michael to anyone looking to Buy a Home in El Dorado area for sure.

Michael Reed was highly recommended by a trusted friend. We are grateful for the recommendation, as Michael did an outstanding job for us. As out of state buyers, Michael offered valuable advise on neighborhoods, informed us of CA laws and Real Estate transactions, and took care of many details (i.e. facilitating inspections). Michael's professionalism and customer service is absolutely outstanding. Based on our experience we would Strongly recommend Michael if you want a knowledgeable, professional realtor who listens and isn't pushy. Thanks Michael!

We have had some dealings with other agents because the home we are renting got listed before we moved out, so we had to coordinate showings, inspections, etc. through multiple agents even though we really had nothing to do with the sale. We were shocked at how unprofessional and inconsiderate most agents were! We appreciated Michael before, but it made us realize how smart we were in working with him! It's too bad everyone in the industry isn't like him. We will always be thankful we had Michael helping us through our real estate transactions and that we gained his friendship in the process!

We called on a Zillow listing late on a Sunday afternoon. Michael Reed, answered the phone and provided the information we desired and the listing agents contact info. After discussing the home we appreciated all the info Michael Reed, provided as well as the fact he was available to take our call and didn't pressure us to use him. We called back an hour later and further discussed our desire to find a home in the general area. Michael Reed, then offered to assist us in our search. We provided our lengthy "wish list" and let Michael Reed, go to work. Michael, showed us properties from Cameron Park to Carmichael before we found just the right home. We couldn't have been more satisfied with our decision to have Michel Reed represent us!

Michael was so helpful. I'm a single woman and was out of the State and even out of the country during the sale. This had to be a real challenge for any realtor but Michael took on the sale with cheer and professionalism. He took care of my plants, communicated constantly even though it was difficult for him and helped me with home repairs so we could close escrow. He communicated with the buyer during the repair process to keep them engaged. He was absolutely excellent!

We were in search of a second home for our growing family and we were referred by his wife. Michael is professional, knowledgeable, and available when we needed to see a home. He provides unbiased yet helpful advice. We enjoyed our time searching for our perfect home. Thank You Michael for a great experience!

-Brian & Catherine Tommasini

Michael has acted as my real estate agent on four separate real estate transactions and I couldn't be more pleased with his involvement. He is dedicated to his clients, extremely responsive, and truly enjoys the business. I have recommended Michael to my family and friends and will continue to do so in the future.

-Adam & Kelly Burke

I would 'absolutely' recommend Michael. He is honest, has a high level of knowledge, and provided 'excellent' customer service and professionalism.

-Nancy Bertoglio

Over the past 5 years Michael Reed has helped us sell my mother's home, sell our home and buy another. He is extremely knowledgeable about the market and terrific to work with. He is a good listener, responsive, trustworthy, and professional. I would recommend Michael Reed to anyone buying or selling in today's market.

-Mike & Joan Whalen

Michael Reed successfully sold my home while I was experiencing several personal issues. Michael was understanding and patient while providing excellent professional real estate service. The house was not an easy sell due to its unique floor plan and lot. However, Michael worked diligently under stressful circumstances to produce a successful sale. I am very grateful for his ability to be sensitive to the seller's needs, expert advice in preparing the house for sale, and his unstinting efforts on my behalf.

-Lori Peterson

Michael has been my agent to sell my home and to purchase another home. He has a high level of knowledge both locally and professionally. Above and beyond these skills Michael truly cares and is honest and truthful in his dealings and advice. During the entire process Michael is available and responsive 24/7 and keeps you informed and aware so that there will be fewer surprises. Michael is committed and invested in his family and community, and this reflects in the way he works with his clients. There is no question that he will do the best job for you as he not only wants his clients to be happy and satisfied, but also considered as true and trusted friends. Considering that purchasing or selling a home is your largest investment/transaction, having a professional who is knowledgable and invested in your success is paramount. I consider Michael to be a true professional and friend and highly recommend him.
