Southern California Residential and Commercial Real Estate

Helping people succeed in real estate since 1996

Are you taking advantage of the real estate market?

If you are in the market as a buyer, I’d love to inform you about different deals.
Besides what’s on the MLS, I track probate, foreclosure, and by owner properties.

If you are looking to sell, I’d be happy to provide you with comprehensive research, stats, and comps.
To better sell your property, I deploy strategic social media, online marketing, and in print promotions.
Over the years, I’ve built a large list of investors, and it’d be a privilege to contact them about your property.

Depend on a professional who can help you reach your goals and succeed in real estate!

He packs a lot of information on his site. Explore his site. You won‘t be disappointed.”

"SELLING A HOME? START HERE! (THANKS MICHAEL!) A big THANK YOU to Michael Stark, realtor, entreprenuer and founder of PostYourProperty.com. For those unfamiliar with PostYourProperty.com, you probabaly aren‘t in Real Estate or buying or selling a home. His site is quite popular with all the search engines (an aged domain and thousands of unique pages does a lot of good these days). Realtors and home owners will place their listings on Michael‘s sites, and once on PostYourProperty, the listings are aggregated to popular sites. It is a free service, and an extremely valuable tool if you are in the market for a home, or selling one. I was already familiar with the site, but after meeting Michael in person I can tell you he‘s the real deal. His sites have been around since 1999. He‘s on his toes and knows where this industry is headed. I hope that even a small amount of Michael‘s energy will rub off on me for my upcoming projects.”
Jason Murphy, The Jason Murphy Show.com

"It was truly an honor working with you. Your tenaciousness, professionalism, and such attention to detail is refreshing; and we hope to work with you again soon.”
Mr. and Mrs. Harold and Victoria Stokes, Irvine, CA
"As far as I can see, you are the “Top Dog” in real estate on the web, and you‘ve done an excellent job with all your sites.”
