Licensed since 1996, it is a privilege to help buyers and sellers. Should you be looking for a residential or commercial investment, I’d be happy to inform you about different deals on the market.
If you are thinking of selling your property, it’s important to work with a professional who can help you not only promote your property, but maximize your return. Over the years, I have built a large contact list of investors who I am in touch with on a regular basis. I’d be happy to learn more about what you might have to sell.

Thank’s Mike. We all appreciate the hard work that you’ve done for RIAOC for a decade. It’s a real grind having to find a new speaker every week. I’m surprised that you lasted as long as you did. It’s comparable to Lou Gehrig’s legendary hitting streak. Thanks for everything that you did.
Michael enthusiastically offered to help my family with challenging sales of five residential rental properties throughout various cities in Los Angeles and Orange County. While I would like to deny it, we may be challenging clients as we are both attorneys with high expectations, and my brother is a real estate broker. Michael impressed both of us as he was able to coordinate the closings of all of these sales over an amazingly quick 14-month period. He promoted the listings to potential property owners and 1031 exchange candidates and kept us informed on his efforts in this regard on a weekly basis. He was amazingly attentive to our needs and remained available at all hours to keep deals moving. Michael was patient, detailed, ethical and fully invested in our matters. We feel lucky to have had his help!
Selling your property can be very stressful, although with an expert such as Michael Stark the process went very smoothly. Given the fact that dealing with the HOA was challenging and complex, Michael demonstrated his skills, expertise, and attention to the details in dealing with the issues. On a daily basis, we were updated on the progress during every step of the process. Thanks to his presence at the several open house weekends, the property sold quickly at the price we expected. Selling your property can be very stressful, although with an expert such as Michael Stark, the process went very smoothly. We are so grateful not only to have worked with Michael, but to know him. He is a real gentleman and a good person.
“Michael is an excellent partner for getting the best results with a quick and straightforward approach. He is creative, using all of his contacts and resources to give the best exposure to our property. He handled the leasing of our commercial property for us, and carefully vetted the potential tenants. We were in the process of renovating the building while Michael looked for tenants. When he understood our vision, he found a tenant that met our requirements. While negotiating the LOI and preparing the lease contract he closely coordinated with our lawyer and myself, which resulted in a contract that was comprehensive and clear. I strongly recommend working with Michael, and intend to use his services in the future.”
Michael, our collaboration in seeking a retirement residence was a long and patient one. Hard to believe it all began nearly 2 ½ years ago and carried over six trips from New Jersey. West Los Angeles, the valley, Orange County and finally Long Beach. Your knowledge of the market, of the process (so very different from real estate closings in NY/NJ/CT), your low-pressure style all worked great. The readiness to take on research, to advise but not decide, all great. We didn’t know how or when or where this journey would end, but where it has is really great. Robin and I are excited to be moving west, to such a wonderful unit in such an incredible building in a phenomenal little city.
Michael is an honest, knowledgeable broker!
Michael is a true real estate professional. He was patient, thoughtful and provided me with great customer service. He is a detail oriented broker who was on top of things and kept me well informed of events as they occurred.
Working with Michael was a real pleasure. If you are interested in having a detail oriented broker, who will keep you well informed of events as they occur, Michael Stark is your guy! Michael kept us informed of progress as things developed in the sale of my wife’s mother’s home in Laguna Hills. Believe it or not, he even kept us informed daily when he was in Paris and Belgium with his family! Before we got the house on the market, Michael took us to see several houses in the area, so that we could price the property correctly for the market we were in. His suggestions about what we needed to do to get this property ready for sale, were spot on, and many repairs were done before the property went on the market. Not every broker is competent to get a property priced correctly, and most are too lazy to do the extra work to get things done properly. But Michael is far from lazy. He worked his tail off to get things done, and done correctly!
Moreover, as the listing progressed, Michael made sure we were aware of every new listing in the area, it’s price and how it compared to ours – even after the property was in escrow. His knowledge about the proper disclosure forms was impressive, and he made sure that the other side got every T crossed, and I dotted! Contingencies were removed on the date specified in the purchase agreement, because of Michael’s diligence. Escrow progressed without any problems, because Michael kept on top of things before they were a problem. Sometimes, he was too detail oriented, but we never complained, because that attention to detail is what we wanted – so that we would not face liabilities after the escrow period was over. The transaction was completed exactly as we wanted.
It should be noted that I am a real estate attorney, who owned and operated a Century 21 office for several years before law school. Professionally, I have worked with thousands of brokers, and I would put Michael in the top 1% when it comes to getting results and being responsive to his clients’ needs. I wish that I had brokers like Michael working for me when I owned my real estate office. He knows his business, and uses that knowledge to protect his clients – far better than most! You can’t go wrong having Michael Stark on your team. He is professional, courteous to a fault, and knowledgeable about real estate and YOUR transaction. Michael believes in providing the best service possible to his clients. Some people get it, and others don’t. Michael is a true professional who will help you accomplish your real estate goals in a cost-efficient manner. The man is awesome, and we have no reservations in giving Michael our highest recommendation!!! He earned it! We are very happy with the service provided by Michael Stark.
Michael, Thanks again for all of your help. You clearly know what you are doing, and were very professional during the entire sales process for our home in Orange County. I could not be any more satisfied or ask anything else of you. I am not sure exactly when we are going to sell our other house, but rest assured you are the go-to-guy for the sale.
As a transplant and first-time home buyer from Northern California, I was no doubt a tough case for Michael. Not only did he need to explain the whole home-buying process to me, but he also was very helpful in educating me about the various Orange County neighborhoods. Throughout the entire process, Michael sought my opinion, watched out for me, and provided me the knowledge necessary for a smooth close. Thanks, Michael!
