Michael Sannes

  • Michael listed and sold my home

      We bought our home 14 years ago using Mike Sannes as the buyer's broker, and had a great experience. When it came time for us to sell, we selected Mike Sannes as our listing broker, and once again made the right decision. In this largely 2nd home mountain location where demand can be fickle, Mike generated two competing offers for us within the first week of listing the property, and successfully guided us to completion of the sale within 45 days from the date we listed our home for sale! We are extremely satisfied with the result, and Mike's office staff was very helpful throughout the escrow period. We highly recommend Mike to anyone considering a purchase or sale.

    • Michael listed and sold my home

        I spent 15 years managing commercial agents and brokering real estate transactions. So I have a great deal of experience seeing great, average and poor agents. As a home seller, I knew I needed to find the best possible agent. I selected Mike Sannes after interviewing three other top agents. His presentation was precise, thorough and I could tell he could sell! In addition, he delivered on all of his marketing promises. He sold my house for full asking price and in a very short time. I highly recommend him.

      • Michael helped me buy a home

          Mike and his team are the best of the best! Wouldn't turn to anyone else in Big Bear. Mike has helped our family buy and purchase a few different homes in Big Bear and they are always great. Maureen Auer is amazing as well! She has been a pleasure to work with.

        • Michael listed and sold my home

            We utilized Mike and his team to sell our Big Bear cabin. We thought this may be a challenge since we were remote owners, but the contact, communication, and quick response to our questions was outstanding. Mike guided us through the entire process, with expert advice on pricing, staging, and selling the cabin. Once we started receiving offers, he gave us great guidance and we accepted an extremely fair offer. He and his team then guided us through the closing process, making it very simple. We would heartily recommend Mike for any real estate needs.

          • Michael listed and sold my home

              Mike was quick and efficient and sold our Big Bear Lake home in 10 days! The professional photographer brought out the beauty and love in our home and all of Mike's team were extremely helpful, kind and knowledgeable. Mike helped make our transition from our dream Big Bear mountain home, which we designed, had built , loved with our family for many years and retired in, to a pleasant major move out of state to be closer to our growing family. We couldn't be happier! Thank you to Mike Sannes and all of his crew!
