WHAT PEOPLE SAY

I interviewed multiple Real Estate agents when I needed to sell a property in the Bay Area. Mike came into the meeting fully prepared and make a lot of commitments that he was willing to do as I live on the East Coast and needed a lot of extra support to sell the home. Mike not only made the commitments, he followed through on every one of them and did many additional things that made the sale of the house transpire without a hitch. Not only did the house sell and close within thirty days, Mike ensured all close related items were handled with white gloves. I highly recommend Mike, he is a fantastic RE professional.

Mike Continillo was an EXCELLENT real estate agent for our family! We had many questions and toured many houses before we found our dream home in Danville. Mike was professional, knowledgeable about the housing market, quick with neighborhood comps, and always was ready to meet us in person with a smile on his face and never-ending positive energy. We toured many open homes and broker tours. He also helped us find a great loan agent that specializes in VA loans. I am still amazed by his friendliness and willingness to meet us in person as we search from one prospective home to another! Mike also sold our home on the day of our broker tour! He was amazing at helping us set up the home and stage it just right for our sale. Mike was quick to respond to texts, emails, and phone inquiries. He even remembered our fine details and our property preferences. If you need a real estate agent, look no further. Contact Mike Continillo and Villa Properties today – we not only consider him a great real estate agent, but we now consider Mike a new friend!

We contacted Mike C. with Villa Properties last Summer as we were considering upgrading into a larger home. Mike was a 5 star from this very first meeting. He came over on a Saturday, dressed professionally (this may seem silly to mention, but I have actually had other Realtors that did not) with an extensive list of homes to visit and an itinerary for us to follow. Although the homes were all beautiful, and what we were hoping for, we realized we were just not ready to move forward at that time. Mike followed up with us promptly and we let him know where we were in the process.

Fast forward to September, our circumstances changed and we received word that my husband was a offered a new job in Truckee. We had one month to get our house sold, and the entire process was taken care of while hoping for the price we needed on our home….. not an easy task.

Mike came through on ALL facets of this sale. Not only was he able to sell our home in a month (it was a week actually), he sold our home OVER the asking price. What I loved most about Mike and this process, is that he kept us abreast on every single thing as it was happening, or before. I, as a buyer, would not call myself particularly easy to deal with at all times, as I was working from home at the time and had to adjust for the multiple daily showings of the home- but Mike made it as comfortable and accommodating for me as possible. He treated me with the utmost respect and I knew what was happening every step of the sale process.

I have worked with other realtors in the past, and I have to say that no one has come close to the top-notch service that Mike provided. He came to each meeting over-prepared with a smile on his face. I would highly recommend Mike to anyone who is considering selling or buying a home- you will not be disappointed!

Ready to sell or purchase a home?

I met with Mike Continillo as I began my search to buy a condo in the East Bay. As a first-time homebuyer I needed a lot of advice, questions answered, etc…. Mike was amazing. He guided me thru the process, was knowledgeable, patient, and professional, and earned my trust immediately. Mike is a great communicator and very easy to work with. In a very short amount of time, he helped me find and buy a great condo. I would highly recommend Mike to anyone buying or selling a property, and will definitely be working with him again in the future.

We were so lucky to be referred to Mike Continillo with Villa Properties! Having worked with several realtors in the past, Mike not only guided us through our most recent home purchase but also provided helpful insight and industry know-how. He went above and beyond by accommodating our hectic schedules, responded in a timely manner, and overall was highly professional and attentive. He is very well-connected and we had such a pleasant and positive overall experience working with Mike. We absolutely plan to work with Mike again!

Mike has been an invaluable support to us through the process of buying a house in California, coming from the U.K. He has been a real ally every step of the way; from being an initial tour guide of the area, right the way through to explaining all the small print once signing contracts. We highly recommend him, especially if this is your first purchase in California.

I couldn’t have picked a better realtor. Mike was so professional. I felt comfortable asking him to take me to a huge variety of homes until we were able to narrow down what we wanted. Not only did he find us exactly what we wanted, but he was also able to sell our house for a great price before we even put it on the market. I always felt he had Our best interest in mind. I feel so lucky to have found him.

Mike is by far the best realtor you could ever ask for. He anticipates what you might need before you even know that you do. We were with him for about 4 months and we felt like we truly were his only clients. I may have gotten his voicemail twice and he called back right away when I did. I never had to look for him and I never felt that he was trying to get us to do anything that we didn’t want to do. His communication is the best, he explains things until you get it and you feel comfortable. He is the nicest person I have met in a long time and he felt like the big brother that you cant wait to see. He was awesome!

I had a very lengthy process in looking for my first place and Cynthia and Mike were there almost the entire time. After losing my first realtor, I contacted Cynthia and Mike because of a personal reference and I could not be happier that I did. With the market being as hot as it was, there were countless times Cynthia or Mike would make up an itinerary, travel to San Jose to show me multiple places, all the while working around my schedule to ensure it was convenient for me. They knew the area well and had great insight into which areas would be a good fit. While we seemed to run into every ridiculous situation possible, Mike and Cynthia took each one in stride and assured me we’d find a place when the time was right. After many open houses and visiting countless different places, I couldn’t be happier where I ended up and owe much of that to Mike and Cynthia. They were always readily available and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy a place.

Mike Continillo was the best realtor by far! He was professional, thorough, and paid attention to detail. Over the course of several months, he took us to see many homes and was always happy to do so. He was very patient and kind throughout the process; as well as, informative and creative when it came time to make an offer. He’s an agent with honesty and integrity – something we place a lot of value in. And now he’s a good friend. We highly recommend Mike to our friends, family, and to you. Roi and Araceli, Home Buyers

I can’t say enough about Mike and Cynthia at Villa Properties! This is the second time our family has worked with them to purchase and sell our home, and they are fantastic people to work with. Every time I hear of someone looking to sell or buy a house I make sure they hear about Villa Properties.

They are very professional and put care into every one of their clients. The home selling and buying experience are so emotionally draining that it is nice to know there are realtors out there that recognize that and help you along the way. Going the extra mile is standard for them.

From the beginning there was no pressure from them because they were working for us, so we would get the house we wanted and sell our house for what it was worth. They worked their tails off which resulted in us getting our contingent offer accepted and our house sold for well more than our asking price.

If you are considering, even a little going through a sale or purchase of home make sure you call Mike and Cynthia to represent you as your San Ramon Realtor. More importantly, choose them to take you through the process, you won’t regret it!

Peter B.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $450K in Castro Valley, CA.

Could not have had a better experience. We had a bad experience with a previous agent from another company and were referred to Mike by a mutual friend. Mike has been SO much better than who we previously worked with. Mike is extremely friendly and professional. We genuinely felt that he was more concerned with us being happy than with just making a sale. He is also extremely thorough with all details during the process. We would not have gotten such an amazing house without Mike’s guidance, I’m sure.

Henok H.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Downtown, San Jose, CA.

Great job! Mike was very helpful from start to finish. For a first-time home buyer, I learned a lot from Mike. I always thought Realtors are pushy to get you to buy but he changed my impression on realtors that there are very good people too. He was very quick to respond to my questions and concern. I would do it again in the future whether buying or selling property. I recommend for any one to do business with Mike.

Honestly, I don’t think we could have asked for a better Realtor than Mike. From the beginning of the process, he was really great to work with. I felt like he listened to what we were looking for, took the time to show us houses without any pressure, and explained the different parts of the process (we’re first-time homebuyers). I guess overall I truly felt like his number one concern was that we were happy with our house when everything was done. I’d definitely recommend him if you’re looking for a Realtor. Thanks Mike!

As first-time home buyers, my wife and I were unsure of what was involved in the entire process. Mike was very informative and he truly helped us understand what needs to be done. He not only answered our questions he was quick to respond and took his time to explain and reassure us that we were not alone. We were in constant contact and felt very confident that we were in good hands. After looking at a few houses and discussing our wants Mike helped us find the home of our dreams. I was not so sure it was going to work out like that. But with Mike's help, he made sure we were not settling for just any house. He wanted just as badly as we wanted to find the right home for our family. I can honestly say without Mike my wife and I would not be living the dream of homebuyers in our very own dream house.

Mike is a thorough professional and extremely adept in his line of business. My wife and I were lucky to have him guiding us through the process of selecting, negotiating, and eventually closing out the deal on our “dream home”.

Mike is someone that you can count on to give excellent counseling and has a sharp acumen when it comes to understanding properties from different standpoints. To start with he gave me a detailed walk of the entire process in a very non-complicated manner, which I might say can otherwise completely wind up someone trying to be a first-time homebuyer. He provides you with all the information so that – you the buyer – are able to make an informed decision.

I think the best skill that Mike brings to the table is that he is extremely patient and listens & follows up on every single thing. He does all the due diligence and research to give you all sides of the equation and at the end of it all, you know you have the best consultant on your side.

My husband and I worked with Mike and Cynthia to purchase our home in San Ramon. They were a great pair to work with because they were so responsive and knowledgeable. This was our first home, so we had a lot of questions and they were very patient with us explaining the entire process, step by step. I can be somewhat of a demanding client, with LOTS of questions and daily emails and Mike always responded with a smile. They spent time going to houses with us and made the whole experience pretty painless. When it came down to making an offer, Mike was great with the negotiation. He seemed to have built a good rapport with the seller’s agent, which helped with the communication process between parties. Mike and Cynthia have great contacts in the industry too and helped us find our Title Company, who we were also very pleased with. If you are looking for an honest, trustworthy, and fun pair to work with…give Mike a call. I hope to work with them again in the future.

Sam B.

We were very satisfied with Mike as our agent. He exercised excellent knowledge and professional service. He’s always on top of things; following up with us and all parties involved. He was truly looking out for our best interest and he made our home purchase experience a positive one. We would definitely use his service again in the future.

I am writing this review about Mike. He is the epitome of professionalism. He has stellar communication skills and is very knowledgeable. He has a calm and careful demeanor. He listens carefully and provides good advice if you request it. We have used him as our agent in the purchase process and could not be happier. Mike is intelligent, accessible, hard-working, and extremely responsive. I am picky about whom I do business with. It takes little to annoy me and cause me to go elsewhere. I would recommend Mike to everyone. Trust me, if you have a negative feeling about or have had bad experiences with real estate agents, Mike will change your mind. His service is impeccable. You will feel like you are his only client, and you will know for sure that you got great service. And if you are thinking about trying to purchase a property without an agent, don’t. Call Mike. You will not regret it.

I am facing a very tough challenge in looking for a home for my son and his family. My son has a family of 4 children and a wife who is handicapped and his income is very restricted by issues beyond his control. In short, it is a very difficult challenge to find the right home for him and his family. When I first met Mike, I made him aware of all the intricacies of the situation and what I wanted to accomplish. I was greatly surprised to see Mike’s reaction and understanding of the task at hand. He has been a great help, providing us with options we haven’t even thought about before. He is very prompt in answering questions and many times I ask the same question more than once and he very politely answers all of them again. Mike goes beyond what we have expected from a real estate agent in getting information and different options. Sometimes I feel as if he were looking for a home for his own family.

My husband Dan and I know that we can trust Mike with a lot of confidential information and that we will get all the information needed to make a sound decision. Dan and I feel that he is not only a person who will help us find the right home for my son and his family, but also every time we call on him we feel like we are calling a friend. His friendly and professional attitude makes us feel at ease and we know we are working with the right person to accomplish a very difficult task.

How does one say thank you enough for the level of professionalism and care we received from Villa Properties? Cynthia and Mike spent an over-the-top amount of time making sure we looked at every possibility until we found our perfect home.

 

Once we found our home Mike took the time to make sure that he was available to oversee every detail and answer every question. We had questions and Mike made sure we had all the answers in a timely manner. Buying a new home could have been one of the most stressful events in our lives, but by choosing the Villa Properties team our family was able to enjoy the excitement of a new home worry-free.

 

Thank you so much, Cynthia and Mike!

Christine Williams P.

From start to finish our house buying and selling experience has been wonderful, yes you read that correctly! You hear horror stories about the real estate market and how long it takes some people to buy their homes, but we didn’t experience any of that with Villa Properties. I don’t sit here and say that just because the owners are …my sister Cynthia and brother-in-law Mike! Their expertise listed our house at the right price, we got an offer the first day and we sold in a week over the asking price. After we closed on our house they diligently searched with us to find our new home. They knew our main goal was to get into a good school district and they stuck to that. Within 2 months of looking, we found our home and closed escrow in 30 days! That didn’t just happen on its own, they made sure we had all our ducks in a row, our loan was underwritten & we were ready to go when we found our dream house. Obviously, there were some stressful nerve-racking moments, but they helped us navigate through that without having to binge on chocolate too often!

What I love is they both have a variety of experience and knowledge, not just in real estate, but mortgages and construction as well. They helped us have a vision for our home, a realistic one. They were honest when they thought we should consider property and when they thought we should walk away. I can’t imagine having to go through this process with anyone else! I thought to myself how could we have done this with someone we didn’t know? The nice thing about Cynthia & Mike is that even if you are just meeting them for the first time you can count on them to be diligent, trustworthy, focused, dedicated & patient. They care about the process, the people, and end result. Yes, they are my family, but I guarantee that if you choose Villa Properties to help you make one of the biggest personal & financial decisions of your life you will not go wrong!

Fred P.

Wow! The job that Mike and Cynthia did was amazing! My wife and I couldn’t be happier. My wife and I were very intimidated by the whole process because this was our first time looking for a house. From day one we felt like we were in great hands. We never felt pressured. Any question that we had was answered. And at no time did I ever feel like they weren’t giving 110%. Over the few months of working with them, I must have called hundreds of times, and every time I got very prompt follow-up. My wife and I are sometimes tough customers to deal with but I had a great experience. Mike and Cynthia delivered! I give them two thumbs WAY up! I would highly recommend them to anyone that is interested in getting A++ service!
