WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
Working with Michael Locke was an absolute dream. Initially, we expected this process to be a hassle as we had flown in from out of state. After all, we had a limited amount of time to find a location for a price within our budget. Luckily, we got in touch with Michael who worked day and night to help us sign on a house that exceeded our expectations. We are still shocked as to how easy he made the entire process. Not only did he work over the weekend, but on a holiday as well to help us secure the location we wanted. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a realtor in the Los Angeles area! The friendly team of Michael Locke and Andy Jelmert has made our home-selling experience a pleasure. Both Mike and Andy are true professionals, very thoughtful, and have guided us each step of the way with their gentle assurance. We sold our home within days and for the asking price, we had hoped for prior to signing up with them. Well done!

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
We worked with Andy Jelmert and Michael Locke to sell our much-loved Echo Park house in Spring 2015 and cannot recommend them highly enough. This was our first home, and Andy and Michael patiently and expertly walked us through everything from getting the house ready for sale and creating a marketing strategy to negotiating with multiple multiple bidders, getting a contract signed, and managing the reams of paperwork all the way through closing. This was all the more challenging because we are in NY and everything had to be handled remotely. Andy and Michael are highly experienced, highly principled, and incredibly patient. They are also extremely effective: we received multiple bids and accepted an offer well above asking, all within two days of listing When we are looking again on the CA market, Andy and Michael will be our first call.

— Natalie B. & Robert B.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
I wanted to congratulate you both on all of the hard work you put into selling our home at 817 Silver Lake Boulevard last summer. Your tenacity and experience were invaluable to securing a respectable offer for our property. Andrew, your finite knowledge of the market coupled with Michael’s enthusiasm and outreach really got the home exposure it could not have enjoyed with another agent or Real Estate firm. In addition, the range of comps you provided made us feel comfortable with the final sale price. In addition, the time and focus you both put into the preparation and staging of our home was integral during the closing phase, and in my opinion, produced a sale without complications. I strongly believe this was due to your collective experience and attention to detail, which is not necessarily a quality one finds in many agents in the Los Angeles area. Should the opportunity arise to work together again, I will certainly contact the two of you for a consultation. I wish the two of you all the best for the coming year!

— John S.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
This was the third time we have turned to Andy Jelmert and Michael Locke to handle a real estate transaction for us. We knew from our previous experiences that they would provide outstanding service from start to finish. And this time was no exception. Michael expertly photographed our property to create a beautiful portfolio of our home. We received an offer on the first day along with a huge response to the webpage. We received our asking price and closed escrow within our expected timeframe but only because of their expertise and diligence in negotiating several unexpected hurdles.
