Testimonials From Probate and Trust Sale Clients

I’ve worked with Michael for years. He has represented personal friends and clients in my probate law practice. His hard work and “get it done” attitude have been invaluable. I have been very satisfied with the work he has done for my clients and my friends all give him rave reviews. In addition, his experience as a home builder and his contacts in the real estate trade specialties such as flooring, painting, yard work, roofers, etc., make him especially valuable if you are buying or selling a property that needs some work. He is a real asset to my law practice, and I recommend him highly.

We really did appreciate all you did for us, to get as much as we could for her mom and the estate! The help you gave us to sell both her houses, was amazing and if we ever have the need to use you again, we will. Believe me, we have told many people about all you did, and hopefully, it will continue to ensure your success!

We are heading up to Tahoe at the end of this week, for the month of July. Would like to get together and share dinner when we return, if we can figure out a convenient date for us all!

Will stay in touch. Thank you again for all  your help!!
Debra Highsmith, administrator

Working tirelessly to facilitate a potentially difficult sale, Michael Stephens’ people skills and potential acumen netted results. Our sale closed quickly and cleanly at a slow time of year. With Michael Stephens at the helm, our family was able to garner an excellent finish at an emotional time.

Thank you for all that you have done for the Robert A Roehl, Estate. I, as well as the others involved in the Estate, appreciate your work, diligence & detailed effort. You set the mark & achieved the goal in seeing that the sale of these properties would be sold for the greatest amount possible under your guidance & direction. You certainly went above & beyond in making these sales a success.  Again, thank you very much.
-Diana Scallin, trustee

YEA! Michael S, a thank you seems inadequate for all you have done and for the many times you went “above and beyond” to take care of things on our behalf. Despite our being out of state and various complications with readying the property for listing, you still managed to take us through the whole process with a minimum of stress. You have been consistently helpful, responsive and professional. We are so grateful that we had the benefit of your expertise and work ethic! We would highly recommend you to any seller. If you ever need additional references we would be delighted to let anyone know how pleased we are with having you as our listing agent.

I have been an attorney for just over 20 years. I recently had the pleasure of working with Michael Stephens on the most stressful, complicated estate I have had to deal with as an attorney and trust administrator. After the first Realtor in his office resigned from the sale, due to its difficulty, Michael took over and had to personally manage the care and clean up through three separate escrows. I know that Michael went beyond the call of duty to make the sale — three separate occasions! If anyone would like to contact me as a further reference of Michael’s abilities, please do so through my email or office number (925)283-1552.
— Bruce Bernstein, Attorney at Law

I want to take this time to thank you for all of your actions in the sale of my home. In life we are all busy. You made the time to give me superior service. I would refer you to anyone who is looking to buy or sell their property. I cannot thank you enough for your professionalism, responsiveness and enthusiasm. I wish you much success and greatness in the future.
