I am a real estate lawyer practicing in the Los Angeles area for over 25 years. I had the pleasure of working with Michael Gardner on several real estate transactions, one involving a $8 MM + home purchase and the other involving a $800,000 condominium purchase. We both represented the Buyer. Without reservation, I recommend Michael as a stellar broker. He is everything you could want from a real estate broker: knowledgeable, diligent and most of all honest. Mike knows all about all local issues and requirements. Mike knows where to find the good vendors for inspections, making sure his client gets the best information available. Mike is responsive and available to answer questions or move documents. Most of all, you can trust Mike to tell the truth about a property. He puts his client first.
