Hear What Our Clients Have To Say

We were referred to Michael by our neighbor, who use to live in our apartment complex. She just finished buying her first house with Michael as her agent. Since we were also first time home-buyers she strongly recommended we meet with him because of his educational approach to buying a home. This involved two very informative one-on-one sessions about his method to buy a house. ... Read More

This process made it very easy to proceed quickly when looking and comparing homes. His decisive method helped up get our home before any other buyers could even make an offer. He is very intelligent when it comes to putting an offer in, so your offer has the best chance of being accepted. In our case we made sure that the buyer had to decide on our offer before an open house would start on a Sunday.

Michael is also very responsive, especially to phone calls, and will get back to you promptly. Since time is very important when buying a house it was great to have someone who would call you after hours to go over something. He also always takes the time to go over any questions you have, or re-explaining something.

One other great thing is that he works with a limited number of buyers at a time, so there is a lot of focus on you and your house search. He knows the LA area extensively, and has good connections in all areas related to real-estate. He has a guy for everything!

Overall, we had an amazing experience buying our first home. We have a great first house as result of working with Michael. We even closed a week early. It truly was way easier than I had expected, and I give Michael all of the credit for that.

You will be very happy you have Michael as your agent as a buyer or seller, and that he is on your team.

Michael will fight for you, and make sure you won't loose a dollar. ...Read less

First thing you need to know about Michael is his class. Before you do anything with your house, you meet with him for a private tutorial on the Real Estate process, current market trends, and the current regulation climate. THIS CLASS IS INVALUABLE. It puts you in a position to know exactly what will 'happen next' as you buy or sell your house. ... Read More

Beyond the class, Michael is a terrific, caring, hard working, talented realtor. Only thing to note is that he observes the Sabbath, so he is off line from sundown on Fridays to sundown on Saturday. But otherwise, he is available 24/7 for you. ...Read less

Michael is a pro and is very knowledgeable. He walks you through the entire process and so when you are ready to make a move you are in the know. He is competitive and a hard worker. I would definitely use him again should I decide to make another real estate move. I was referred to him by 3 people - all happy with his work.

Michael Barasch Realty is wonderful! He and his colleague Michael Brennan have been so helpful, clear, and considerate. They met with me nearly a year before I listed my home, taught me a great deal about the process, were entirely upfront and open about everything, and were able to find me the best price possible. I highly recommend them!

Michael Barasch recently sold our home for us. He and his assistant were amazing throughout the entire process. You could not ask for more professional people. Michael guided us through every step, from getting us ready to put our house on the market right through closing. He truly is a full-service broker. He recommended highly qualified and affordable contractors for us to work with, when preparing for the sale, and when we needed a repair or a permit he knew exactly what we should do--and who we should contact.... Read More

He kept us regularly informed as we moved through to showings and an eventual sale. He was spot on in terms of what price we might reasonably sell for, and he never gave us any false expectations. Michael Barasch has a great deal of integrity--and is also a terrific person. He was thoughtful and considerate to our entire family from beginning to end. I highly recommend him, without hesitation. ... Read less

It has taken me some time to write this review as I wanted to settle in and really think over my experience working with Michael Barasch. After a lot of consideration and comparing notes with my friends with have worked with other real estate agents, I want to sincerely give Michael the highest number of stars possible. As a first time home buyer, I was definitely anxious and had a lot of demands and questions. ... Read More

Michael and his team always made me feel like their only client and I always had my questions answered quickly and with satisfaction. When I started working with Michael, he promised me the smoothest and hassle free home buying experience. That is exactly what I got. I have friends who had to deal with a series of issues (including not getting the home they wanted), but everything went smoothly with my purchase just exactly what Michael promised. He also introduced me to a neighborhood that I now really enjoy (at the time, I was so against it:). I am so glad I got to work with Michael and I would recommend him to everyone. Thank you so much Michael!...Read less

Michael and his team are the best of the best! When we were looking to buy a house Michael helped us to find the perfect home and fought for us when the process got complicated. We loved working with Michael so much that when it came time to sell our house, we never considered calling anybody else!! ... Read More

We are so sad that he doesn't work in Austin, TX because every other realtor we talk to in our new home search is sub-par. He knows the business, he's trustworthy, and he is always available. We could not recommend The Barasch Group more highly!!!!!!!!!...Read less

Michael Barasch was referred to me by THREE people. I was finally ready to take the leap as a first time home buyer and everything happened really quickly and I found a fantastic home thanks to Michael! From the very beginning, he walked me through the entire home buying process starting with his class that every client must take!... Read More

Michael is very experienced and knows the ins and outs and will help you navigate through this real estate market in Los Angeles. If you are looking aggressively to sell or buy a place and want like a solid partner to walk and lead you through every step of the way - call Michael. I've had success and he doesn't like to let his clients down....Read less

I met Michael at an open house and knew that he was the right fit for me. I purchased my first condo over two years ago with Michael's help. I've delayed posting a review because I thought the entire home-buying process was too easy and was waiting on something bad to happen. It never did.... Read More

Michael knows what he's doing and makes sure you're educated as well. I feel like nothing was a surprise, and he walked me through everything so I understood it all (even when the unexpected things pop up). I will use him when I buy another property and highly recommend him to everyone....Read less

I started our first time home buying experience with a different realtor. That was a huge mistake. Once I found Michael, I felt so relieved. This guy REALLY knows what he is talking about. We learned so much from him, and it made us feel confident throughout the whole process. Both Michael and his assistant Taryn are incredibly responsive.... Read More

If you have a question or concern, they are on it immediately. He listens to you, and will go after what you want. Michael will give you his honest opinion, but he is never pushy or rude. He's such a cool guy to hang out with, he made buying a home fun! I would definitely recommend Michael to our friends and family....Read less

Michael is a great agent, and knows the neighborhood quite well. I would highly recommend the Barasch Group! Michael made the whole experience quite easy and was very helpful in getting all the parties in order.

I'm giving Michael a 5 star rating only because Zillow won't let me give him 6. I've been working with Michael for several years now since we left LA and moved to Chicago in 2009. We kept our property in LA and during that time, Michael has been incredibly proactive in providing us detail on the LA market and expert advice on the right and wrong time to sell. His knowledge of the real estate market, integrity and patience is second to none in the industry.... Read More

On Michael's advice, we put our townhouse on the market in mid-October. Within a week we had three offers well within our acceptable price range and a closed deal 10 days later. I was amazed at how smoothly the transaction progressed and the ease to which it was closed as we were 2,000 miles away. That is a testament not only to Michael, but his staff, particularly Taryn Booth and the service they provide.

My only regret is we no longer have a stake in Los Angeles real estate, so unless I can convince Michael to move to Chicago, we'll be forced to use real estate professionals here who in my opinion can't possible match the professionalism and service we received from the Barasch Group....Read less

I cannot recomment Michael enough. From beginning to end his knowledge and experience makes the home buying process a bit easier. Michael spends a significant amount of time making sure you understand each step and don't have any concerns. He helps you find the house that is right for you and then fights to ensure you actually get that property. In the crazy market that is Los Angeles real estate I can't imagine a better person to work with.
