We knew from our past dealings with you that you would do an excellent job selling our house and you did. Right from the start with the excellent advertising coverage of the first open house, to staying on top of all the various dealings with the escrow company and the buyers' realtor, your experience and knowledge of the South Bay real estate market helped us get top dollar for our home. I also believe the staging you suggested really made a big difference in how the house was shown, especially in the kitchen. It looked like a model but still felt like a real home. the staging gave the house a pulled together look in ways I would never have dreamed. I am the original Mrs. Clean and thought just having all the clutter gone would be the way to go, but the decorations the stagers did was awesome and well worth the money. I have mentioned it to my family and friends and they were all intrigued, never having heard of it before. I predict that staging a home for sale will catch on big time.

You have also done a great job for friends that we have recommended you to in the past, Ann & Larry French, and we would certainly recommend you to family and friends in the future. Thanks for all your help and best of luck to you.

To whom it may concern,

Choosing a Realtor in any market is very difficult. you don't know in advance until the task is completed if you would choose the same broker again. having been a resident of Manhattan Village for 19 years and serving on the Board of directors for 16 of those years has provided me with many opportunities to evaluate Real Estate companies and their representatives. I believe it is extremely important to choose a broker who live in the Village and knows the property thoroughly. After careful evaluation I chose Nina Michaels of South Bay Brokers to sell my home. she works very hard and had solid buyers for my home even before the property was officially on the market. she dealt in a very professional manner with every aspect of the listing, sale, and escrow. I never had to worry about my interest being compromised. I highly recommend Nina Michaels and I, without a doubt, would choose her again.

RE: Commendation of the service received from Nina Michaels

We would like to take this opportunity to commend the service we have received from one of your brokers, Nina Michaels, in the sale of our property at 14 San Miguel Court, Manhattan Beach. Ms. Michaels was courteous and professional in all of her dealings with us. She helped us to organize and to carry out what turned out to be a necessary near complete remodel of the property because of the challenging market conditions during this past summer. her recommendations were always presented with consideration and patience as it took time for us to accept that significant work on the unit (and expense) would have to be undertaken, a professional staging of the house would be necessary, and a significant drop in our asking price and eventual sales price would be required.

We also feel that Ms. Michaels was very diligent in holding many, many open houses for us during the sales period (including on her birthday) and for a week after the sale in an attempt to line up back-up buyers should our original buyers back out. She also facilitated a positive interaction with the buyer's agent and has continued to offer to be of assistance to that agent in obtaining rental tenants for the buyers. Obviously, we would not hesitate to recommend Ms. Michaels to others, and we have already provided a recommendation to our Mortgage Lender, who requested an agent reference for his customers. I think he was impressed that Ms. Michaels got the job done for us in the nick of time in such a difficult market.

We sincerely appreciate Ms. Michaels' efforts on our behalf. We believe that she played a very important role in bringing about a sale in which all parties are feeling satisfied with the results.

Yours very truly,
