    • Wow. Michael Szakos and his dedicated team are simply amazing. It was actually scary how fast we sold our home. We had two written offers within 24 hours of going on the market, and sold our house above the asking price.Team Szakos took care of everything and was always available to answer any questions we had without making us feel unintelligent for asking them. The sale proceeded very smoothly without any surprises because Michael was quick to give us any update along the way.If you shop around for a realtor to sell your home you will find a lot that are cheaper, but none that are better. And ask yourself this: if they are not willing to negotiate for the best deal for themselves, why would they negotiate the best deal for you?

    • Michael and Team Szakos did a fantastic job on selling my condo. He held firm on the price and got what I was asking. My HOA even got the entire HOA on the FHA approved list to complete the transaction. The whole process was smooth and we were able to close within 30 days of the offer I accepted. I highly recommend him and Team Szakos.

    • I started losing a huge amount of money or value on my condo when the market went down a few years ago. At the time this was happening, I spoke with my current real-estate agent I had at the time about selling it right away before my loss would be worse. She gave me the run around saying not to worry, that the market would come back up again, etc. Since I trusted her, I believed her and continued losing every single month even though the cost of living kept going up.It got so bad that I spoke to her about doing a short sale since I could no longer afford to be losing money every single day and she told me it would take at least 2 years or more going that route. I was so desperate because she reassured me that the market would come back etc. same storyit never did. In the meantime, I got married and my husband and my husband was going through the same exact situation. Years went by and we got in debt so bad that we didnt know what to do. We even considered filing bankruptcy. Both my husband and I had perfect credit but because of the losses, our credit just got really and I mean really bad. My husband met a consolidating company to help us out with our credit card debts and they recommended Michael. That company told us that Michael specialized in Short Sales along with buying and selling of homes and would be able to help me. Since our current real estate agent didnt want to help us or made it sound like it was impossible, we decided to meet with Michael, what did we have to lose right? From the very first moment we met, Michael made us feel very comfortable and told us that he could help us get out of the bad situation we were in within 6 months and if not, he would personally buy my property? With his confidence, we were so desperate and felt we could trust him, we decided to go through Michael.Michael helped me make a plan to get me out of my bad situation involving my home. He really made the process so much easier than it would have been, he regularly communicated with me so I always knew what was going on with my home. He got me several offers to make sure that my home sold for the most amount of money. And he negotiated very professionally on my behalf to make sure all of my needs were met! This was completely a team effort and it seemed like the team always had my needs at heart and made sure everything went well for me.The entire sell took no more than 6 months. It wouldve been within 3 months but the first buyer sadly passed away in the middle of escrow. Otherwise, it wouldve taken half of the time Michael reassured us it would take. But right away Michael got another offer.My husband and I are extremely grateful to have met Michael. That God put him in our lives to help us alleviate this huge burden we had. There are not enough words on how grateful we are with Michael. We need more people like Michael in our world.Thank you so much Michael!

    • I moved to northern California shortly after putting my house on the market and was nervous about doing a long-distance transaction, but Michael and his team handled everything beautifully and the sale went very smoothly. Michael was very good about keeping in touch with me and answered any questions or concerns promptly. He was able to get me multiple offers, successfully negotiated a good sale price and escrow went very smoothly. Overall, a good, stress free and positive experience.

    • After viewing many homes in the area we knew we found the perfect one for us. The only problem was that there were 4 other offers, and we were VA buyers. Team Szakos found a way for us to connect with the seller, and got them to take our offer even though it was for less than others they had. The sellers agent said that his comfort level with Team Szakos, in addition to our connection is what got our offer accepted. The whole process went really smoothly and we actually were stressed that it was going to well. After hearing friends and family go through the process and all the hassle they went through, we thought maybe something was wrong. Well we are happy to report that with Team Szakos help we now have the perfect home to raise our son and continue to build our family. Thanks!!!!

    • Our needs were specific, and we were really happy that Team Szakos was able to get us exclusive access to homes that werent on the market yet, using their connections and secret inventory list. They worked with us to find the perfect home. Michael was genuine in wanting us to find the right home and never pressured us to buy something that wasn't going to be right or we wouldn't be comfortable with. Team Szakos wrote an amazing offer that actually made the seller pick ours over other offers from other buyers, with special strategies and terms that appealed to the sellers. The offer on that particular home was so perfect, we didn't even get countered, the sellers just accepted it, and didn't consider the other offers they had in hand. Additionally, they talked us out of selling our home. We had not really considered that before, but instead of trying to get us to sell, so they could get paid, they actually talked us out of selling it, keeping it as an investment, and we were still able to buy the home that was perfect for us. The whole experience was impressive.

    • It was great working with Mike and his team. I highly recommend them. My home sold for MORE than asking price and the entire process was LESS than 45 days from start to finish. I have always been skeptical about the "value" of a real estate agent, but the Szakos team proved they can deliver above and beyond the rest.

    • The Szakos Team was a real pleasure to work with. From opening contracts to close, the Szakos team was on top of matters throughout the entire transaction. When I needed to sell quickly, that's just what happened...They got my house sold fast, for top dollar and hassle free, in a tough market... just like Mike said he would...Truly putting his words in to motion. Mike even offered to buy my house if it didn't sell in a timely fashion, using his guaranteed sale program...Now who would offer that! I would highly recommend the Szakos team, whether your buying or selling your next home!

    • I met Mr. Szakos from Dave Ramsey (ELP) in 2014 after the death of my husband. Michael's professionalism and thought out strategy helped to sell my home in less than two weeks. He put my fears and concerns at ease, and if I had to go with another realtor to sell a home again, Michael would definitely be my one and only choice. In Ventura county, the majority of real estate agents know of Michael Szakos and of his expertise in the field; recommended highly.

    • It still doesnt seem true! Our family just bought a home that no one else even knew was for sale. Team Szakos talks about their exclusive access to properties that no one else knows about, and I can honestly say it is true. Team Szakos successfully tracked down the out-of-area owner of a vacant home we were interested in and convinced them to sell the home to us without ever putting a sign out front. We were able to exclusively negotiate with the seller without worrying about other buyers getting involved. Team Szakos helped us to find and purchase the home of our dreams and I was consistently impressed with their professionalism and responsiveness. I am so grateful and looking forward to moving into the home of our dreams. Thank you!
