To Whom It May Concern: My wife and I retained Michelle Berman as our buyer’s agent back in 2011 while we were still living in the Bay Area, east of San Francisco. We wanted to move to the Encinitas-Carlsbad area. We were very particular about what we wanted and the search for the right house took more than two years, with us coming down every three or four months to tour houses with Michelle. She was very patient with us and always willing to show us what she thought we would like and give us her honest opinions on the pluses and minuses of each house. With her help we were able to find our new home in Carlsbad, a home that both I and my wife love. We have had considerable experience with realtors and we think that Michelle Berman is by far the best realtor we have known.
To whom it may concern, It is our absolute pleasure to recommend Keith and Michelle Berman of Berman Estates for any individual or family searching for the ideal home, investment property or any type of real estate services. Keith and Michelle have helped us with many real estate and loan transactions over the years, including the latest one involving the sale of our condo. We were so impressed at how fast they made this sale. From the day it was listed, it was only 6 days until it was sold and in escrow. Especially notable is their knowledge and experience in the market place as demonstrated by the spot on pricing for the sale of our condo. In all our transactions with Keith and Michelle, we were always impressed with their impeccable work ethic, honesty and expert professional handling of all aspects and details for us. We highly recommend Keith and Michelle Berman of Berman Estates to any person who is seeking excellent service for real estate and loan transactions. Very best regards,
My husband and I used Michelle & Keith Berman of Berman Estates to sell our Encinitas home. This was our first home sale, and we did not know what to expect, or what was expected of us, the sellers. Michelle walked through our home multiple times prior to listing, and she let us know exactly what we needed to do to get our home sale-ready. She explained what she thought the best price for our house would be, and within six days and one open house, we received three competitive bids. Throughout the escrow process, Michelle made sure no deadlines were missed, and that the entire process proceeded smoothly. She was extremely accessible, and any time we had a question or concern, our texts, emails and phone calls were responded to promptly and thoroughly. I would definitely recommend Berman Estates to anyone looking to sell a house, and indeed we have referred her to friends looking for an excellent realtor.
It was truly a pleasure working with you both to sell our home this month. It is always an emotional experience when one decides to list their home, especially when they are so fond of it and the area. Encinitas Ranch is truly THE place to live if you want the best of the beaches, golf courses, and overall living experience. Having been former residents yourselves, you were the best and most qualified to sell our home. Your knowledge of the overall area, home prices, and market trends was top notch. After seeing your initial presentation, we had to look no further for a realtor. You both make a great team especially with Keith's knowledge of the financial aspect of the transaction. You were kind and honest about the value of our home, your marketing strategy and giving us a realistic time frame of what to expect in our sale. Needless to say, you nailed it! We sold our home in 5 days based on your counsel of when to list and at what price. The whole process was seamless and you were there every step of the way to ensure our questions were answered. Your personal attention and follow up were greatly appreciated. I would highly recommend your services to any one of my neighbors or friends. If you have a customer that would like to speak with us directly, please do not hesitate to give them my phone number. Thank you very much and we wish you continued success.
Dear Michelle & Keith, Where do we begin to express our immense gratitude for the excellent work and support you provided for us in the successful marketing and sale of our home on 628 Lynwood Drive? From the get-go, you were very professional, informative and precise without being pushy. The photos taken were beautiful and the marketing brochure was absolutely stunning. Because our home had so many upgrades we were truly amazed at your ability to incorporate all the items into a fluid narration for both the brochure and the virtual tour. The narration you wrote for the virtual tour showcase the home in the manner that it needed to be shown to help sell it. Lastly, we especially appreciated the support you provided when times got tough during the escrow process as it often does with escrows. But through it all, you kept us fully abreast and remained a calming influence. Having you with us in the journey of selling our home, we felt we found a winning team and along the process we felt we also found lifelong friends. With sincerest appreciation & gratitude, Herald & Pat
Dear Michelle & Keith, My husband and I wanted to properly thank you by putting into writing our immense admiration and gratitude for the stellar work you delivered to us during the listing and sale of our home. Your attention to every detail of the home selling process beginning with accommodating our last minute call for a preview, to the beautifully professional photography, profiling our home including eloquent audio narrations, of the “Warm Focus” video , to those photographs being used in the photo- quality brochures available to all prospective buyers during the home showings, to the most professional management of the financial and business details of the sale of our home, made this experience an absolute pleasure. Your work, with the inclusion of keeping your clients up to date and educated in the process, every step of the way, created for us a feeling of trust and professionalism that translated into deep respect. Your work is an example of what professionalism and customer service should be held to, in yours, and every industry. Please accept our heartfelt gratitude and future loyalty for your excellence. We could not have asked for a better experience and hopefully made a lifetime friend. Thank You. Sincerely, Herb and Debbie Field
Dear Michelle This is Tom and Diane Shima writing. We owned the property at 1613 Magnolia Circle in Vista that you aided in selling for us. We just wanted to write to let you know how appreciative we were of your service to us in regards to the sale. We live remotely from the property (Reno, Nevada) and had some misgivings going into the sale of the Vista property because of this. We were afraid that we might have been "taken advantage of" because we were not local. You were recommended to us and you immediately put us at ease when we met you and went through the property with you. You kept us informed of all progress, gave us a reasonable "range pricing" for our home and kept your promise that you could get the house sold at the upper level of that range. You provided valuable assistance with your local contacts when we needed a landscape expert, painter and even an electrician to deal with issues of the house. They were all reasonable priced and very professional in their work. When the paperwork needed t be done, you were prompt with emails and "e-docusign" so that there was a minimum amount of effort on our part. As the sale progressed, you were constantly in touch with us regarding inspections, repairs etc. Your company is everything we could have wished for in a respectable realtor and we are thrilled that we selected you and your company to work with us. Thank you so much Tom and Diane Shima
Michelle & her support staff - Jennifer Ash, Irene Sheppard (Fidelity Escrow) did a great job. Michelle personally went and checked & weeded out some of the offers and presented 5 offers and recommended one, which we selected. Michelle and support staff kept us informed constantly on the progress on the Escrow. The only minor hitch was that the Escrow has to be extended for 2 weeks as the Lenders papers were not ready on time. Thanks to Michelle for making it so easy to sell our San Marcos house and she is Welcome to sell our Escondido House in 2 years. Kathleen Rajan & Dr. Mandayam Rajan, Ph.d, C.E., S.E., J.D.
To whom it may concern, I highly recommend Michelle. Michelle Berman helped me sell my home and also purchase another at the same time. She was really there for me, both professionally and emotionally during the very stressful process of selling and purchasing homes at the same time. Michelle was there for me night and day, when I was not so clear headed. She helped me to see the right path. I can't highly recommend her enough. Plus, as a bonus her husband is a loan officer. He was able to guide me and help me as well. They are a one stop shop, extremely helpful. They went above and beyond. I can't thank them enough.
To whom it may concern: We recently retained Berman Estates to represent us in the sale of our rental house in San Marcos. Nicole Davis did an excellent job and followed up on everything in a timely and professional manner. She and her team coordinated with all parties throughout the process, including the existing renters, helping make this the smoothest real estate transaction possible. Escrow closed on time, and to sum it up, we could not be more pleased with their work. We highly recommend Nicole and Berman Estates and would definitely use them again.
