WHAT PEOPLE SAY

It had been 15 years since we sold and purchased a home, and we pretty much felt like first time buyers all over again. Mike was recommended to us and we were very impressed with him. He sold our home and also helped up with the purchase of our new home. We started with an introductory meeting. He went over his background, ask us what our goals were, and explained the process in detail. He was very patient and knowledgeable of the areas we were looking in (Castro Valley, San Ramon, Dublin and Pleasanton). We were all over the place as far as where we wanted to live, but he kept us focused -- allowing us our freedom -- and grounded, listening to our wants while also reminding us of our budget.

I met Mike through a networking group and knew right away that he would help me with my next real estate transition. True to form, Mike helped us navigate the COVID turmoil and get us to an offer in the first week.

Mike recently helped us sell our home and I am convinced that Mike is the best real estate agent in the San Ramon Valley. Selling a home is a stressful process and Mike's work and guidance goes a long way to reduce the amount of stress during the process. Mikes integrity and work ethic are above and beyond. I highly recommend him as a real estate broker.

Buying or selling a home is one of the most important decisions in life. Whether you’re just starting to look into the possibilities and need expert advice, or are looking for a first class realtor to represent you, I highly recommend Mike Continillo from Villa Properties.

 

Mike has a wealth of skill and experience as an Agent / Broker in the Tri-Valley, and has the unique ability to listen intently, ask questions where appropriate, and offer suggestions where helpful. And in addition to being extremely knowledgeable and professional, he’s also a pleasure to work with and always has your best interests in mind.

 

I learned this firsthand when I went to him several times for advice that helped me immensely. Mike has my complete respect and trust, and I know he'll earn yours too if you give him a call. It will be a decision so worth it!

Mike is simply an exceptional realtor who knows his business!! If you’re looking to buy or sell a house, we highly recommend him. We met Mike while requesting information about a listing that he had. He was very attentive and offered his expertise whenever we were ready. From that conversation, we learned that he is a good LISTENER and his conduct would be professional.

We engaged Mike for both the purchase of our dream home and the sale of our previous home. Throughout the process, Mike kept us rational, reminded us of our goals, and worked to ensure we met them. He was available for us 24/7, literally, and his response time is incredible. He kept us informed and provided objective advice. We can’t thank Mike enough for his patience and keeping us focused, knowing what we were looking for, and getting it. He is an effective communicator and keeps a positive attitude -ALWAYS.

 

Thank you Mike for a job well done. We’re lucky that we got you to represent us, and you did it with integrity.

I’ve worked with many real estate agents in the past in selling or buying properties. While they were all knowledgeable, Mike surpassed that in all ways, including his personal care and support through an emotional process for me in selling my Mom’s house. He had quick and easy access to excellent vendors to present the house in pristine fashion and gain the best possible offer I could find, $25,000 over the asking price. While I could have caved on some issues, Mike had my “back” and guided me in thoughtful decisions that truly supported my best interest. I would not hesitate to recommend Mike for your real estate needs.

Thank you, Mike, for your compassion and support through this process!!

We found Mike to be very knowledgeable, attentive, and extremely patient. My sister & I were going through the loss of our mother & Mike was very helpful, we had so many questions, not really understanding some things, but Mike took the time to explain everything pertaining to the selling of the property to our satisfaction. He was always there for us with any questions or advice.

With Mike’s hard work the property was sold within the first week of listing! He truly is a fantastic real estate agent!

We highly recommend Mike to anyone who is looking to sell or buy a home!

Mike Continillo has to be one of the BEST real estate agents that you can find. We were first-time home buyers and Mike’s guidance was invaluable. Right from our first meeting, Mike really took the time to understand what we were looking for and give us the right advice. We had a ton of questions and Mike was not only super knowledgeable but also responsive 24*7 (literally).

We wanted to tour a lot of properties but only had availability during late evening hours on weekdays or weekends. Mike worked with our schedule and was always able to arrange a showing and be there in person – for every single tour.

When it was time to make an offer on our chosen house, Mike was definitely far superior to other agents (who by now have been conditioned by the market to always make an offer above asking). With Mike’s help and guidance, we made an offer that was significantly BELOW ASKING with all contingencies still in place.

It took us only 30 days from the time we met Mike to having our home purchase locked-in. We got a great home at a great price and it was a fantastic, stress-free experience all along the way.

Working with Mike was a pleasure and I would strongly recommend Mike to anyone who is looking to buy a home in the Bay Area.

I found Mike and Villa Properties from Zillow.com. They had great reviews and the services were 100% matching with the experiences mentioned by previous reviewers. Mike explained the process in detail and helped ensure that the transaction went really smoothly. We ran into delays and issues with the documentation required by the lender. Mike worked with the seller, seller’s agent, appraiser, and the lender consistently and regularly to keep the process moving. He worked with the seller to extend the contract to accommodate the delays in getting the loan approved. I will definitely recommend Mike’s services for selling or buying your property.

Mike Continillo of Villa Properties helped us sell our rental condo recently in Petaluma.  Even though this is out of the area he was willing to help and gave great advice, helping to keep us on track and on budget.  When it came to getting a fair price Mike was a master at negotiations.  He is extremely professional and patient, taking all the stress out of selling property and dealing with any and all issues that could possibly come up.  It was a seamless experience and when we’re ready to purchase another home – Mike will be the one to get the job done!
