We chose Mike Gardner to list our $8.5m beach home in Malibu and he sold the house in a very short time compared to some of our neighbor’s homes. We contacted Mike after reading his informative real estate blog, which we liked because of its frank commentary and insight into the Malibu real estate market. We selected Mike to list our home because of his advanced techniques with online marketing and his eagerness to focus on promoting our house to the world…literally. With 4 family members on title, Mike handled the transaction diplomatically and professionally within a changing situation. He kept us informed on a regular basis with data, showing us the results of his marketing efforts and reported back to us after each showing with detailed feedback. When it came time to negotiate the multiple offers that were presented, Mike was able to assists us in making good decisions about choosing the strongest buyer. I highly recommend Mike, for both buying and selling, in the Malibu real estate market.
