What Our Clients Are Saying

Michael helped me save my house from foreclosure. In 2005, I purchased my “dream home” with another agent and his lender. What I did not understand at the time was that my loan had a balloon payment after 5 years. In 2010 my payment almost doubled and I could not make payments. Also, my house was $250,000 underwater so I could not sell it and the banks did not want to work with me. A co-worker of mine referred me to Michael in 2011 after I was 6 months behind on my payments and an auction notice had been posted on my door. I was so scared, I did not know what to do. Michael was able to stop the foreclosure and work out a short sale with the bank. I was able to stay in my property for another 9 months while he worked with the lenders. Throughout the entire process, he communicated with me and actually cared about how I was doing. In the end, he was also able to get me $5000 in moving expenses and save my credit. I recommend Michael to all of my friends and family and plan on using him as my realtor if I ever decide to buy again.”


“We came across Mike by chance just attending an open house. Good thing we did because he really helped us get into a house. Our transaction wasn’t an easy one, we we’re first time homebuyers & didn’t have too much money for a down payment & our credit wasn’t the greatest but that didn’t deter him.
He introduced us to one of his great lenders & got the ball rolling on showing us houses. We were very particular about what kind of house we wanted & he didn’t waste our time showing us houses that didn’t fit our needs. He must’ve shown us 25-30 houses before we finally found one we loved.
Since the house we chose was a short sale, we knew we were in for the long haul. One thing I really liked about Mike was that he was very responsive & worked around our schedule.
We finally closed on our first home in August & I can honestly say that if it wasn’t for Mike, we would’ve still been looking for a house.”


“I am a retired Marine working as a contractor at MCB Camp Pendleton. Met Michael through another Marine who used Michael to sell his Temecula property and move to Carlsbad. I did just the OPPOSITE, by selling my Oceanside condo and moved to a larger single story home in Murrieta. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Michael listed my house and got me more than I had expected. He found me a buyer who allowed me to rent the property back for 2 1/2 months while I found and moved into my home in Murrieta. That was a big help. A+.”


“I’m a busy professional that spends a lot of time away from home. I have used Mike to buy 3 homes and sell 2 in the last 3 years. Mike gets it done!! He is patient, listens to exactly what I am looking for, and delivers. In the summer of 2013, when I was purchasing my most recent property, the market was extremely hot and I was out of town most of the time. He actually went to the properties for me, and did virtual tours with me on the phone. How awesome is that. I couldn’t ask for a more accommodating guy. He is my agent for life.”


“Michael Burns helped me find my dream home. We probably viewed over 50 houses in my search to find the right place. that met all of my requirements. Michael is extremely knowledgeable, professional, patient, as well as a good listener. All of my requirements were met when we finally found the one place I now call home. I am extremely pleased with Michael’s excellent customer service. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a quality real estate agent. I plan on working with him again in the future.”
