We are so fortunate to have been able to work with Michael McLoughlin of Prudential Realty during the process of selling our treasured home of many years that we built with loving care in order to downsize. Needless to say, it was an emotional challenge. Thanks to Michael for making this as smooth and pain free a process as possible. Advertising our home and showing it was done in such a professional and classy fashion, not to mention finding a buyer more quickly than we ever dreamed. It was amazing that at the same time he was able to view many homes that would fit our needs for the next move. His screening was efficient so we only saw homes that he knew would be acceptable. Michael truly made our life changing moves as pleasant as could be. We are so grateful to this charming man for all of his services that went above and beyond.
I am writing this letter to thank you for your office’s service, and for referring us to our realtor Mike McLoughlin. He assisted us in our relocation from New York City to the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Mike was professional, courteous, and always available. He became such and integral part of our move, that our children treat him like one of the family. We had very specific needs in our search for a home, and Mike took the time to select only the listings that would suit us. His knowledge of the area and real estate in general was extremely helpful. He made sure that we knew of potential problems such as land slide zones, homes in proximity to schools, or areas with heavy traffic. He took the time to point out faults in a homes construction. He would even go to City Hall, and verify information when a listing was misleading or erroneous. This was such an invaluable asset, as we are first time homeowners, and wanted the perfect home for our young family. Mike made us feel comfortable during our search for a home. I never felt rushed, and when the time came to make a bid, he provided us with information on comparable homes, so that I can make an educated offer. He also kept on top of the listing agents, so that we could make timely adjustments to our offer. I believe his efforts helped us in our purchase of a Craig Ellwood mid-century modern home (a rare find on the Peninsula). Thank you again. You can be assured that we will return to Mike for any of our real estate needs.
This summer we decided to put our late parent’s home in the Malaga Cove neighborhood of Palos Verdes Estates up for sale and because we live in Northern California we asked our Southern California friends, family and neighbors for a referral to a local realtor. We received a very good reference from a friend who had recently hired Mike McLoughlin to sell her nearby home. This had been a difficult transaction and apparently Mike had handled the sale extremely well. After interviewing several realtors we ultimately chose Mike. We were impressed with Mike’s ability to listen carefully to our specific needs, his promise that he could be very hands-on in the process of prepping the home for sale, and his general real estate sales knowledge. Our experience with Mike was truly impressive. He is an extremely hard worker, tenacious, professional, nice, dedicated and smart, and with him at the helm we were able to sell our home within a couple of months. It wasn’t your usual real estate transaction. Our parents had left 40 years of ‘stuff’ behind and there were plumbing and other repair issues to handle. Because we live so far away we depended on Mike to interact with the various trades and estate sales people to prepare the home for market. He never missed a beat working nights and weekends to get the house on the market quickly, and staging the house for ultimate appeal. Mike held open houses every weekend for several weekends and constantly kept us updated via phone calls, emails and texts. Once an appropriate buyer was identified Mike negotiated the deal with aplomb. We are very impressed with Mike and would highly recommend him as a realtor to anyone looking for a successful and positive experience selling your family home.
