“I would say to my friends who want to sell their house, ‘Mike is going to get your family. He’s going to understand what it means to sell your home, with all of its history. Even if it’s 100 years old, he’s going to market it in a very contemporary ways with high-tech, using all sorts of multimedia. Mike will present it as a home not just facts about roads and schools, but what it would really be like to live there.” 


“Mike is much more strategic in the home search process. Once we figured out where we were going, Mike set a target for all available listings. His system is really great because you see real-time what the homes list for and close for, so you can see real-time what the market is doing.” 


“Had Michael not been as persistent as he was, we probably would not have gotten this house.” 


“Mike’s terrific. He has such a tremendous knowledge of the market. He can quickly tune in to what you’re looking for and be very effective in helping you get what you want, while being very realistic in a challenging market.” “I thought Dreyfus’ team approach was amazingly good. Noelle was absolutely all over our account. Anything we needed, she was super responsive. With Mike, we got a very seasoned broker and the full benefit of his experience when it mattered.”

“The level of support and accessibility we had in buying our first home for our kids was especially important to my wife. She really appreciated the way that Mike and Noelle teamed and were very available for her through the bidding process and the closing process, and they continue to be helpful afterwards. In negotiating, Mike was brilliant. He saved us money and he de-risked our offer by playing it smart. Mike is masterful at this stuff.”

“We beat our expectations. We got a better house and a better community than we thought we could get. And we got it faster than we thought it would ultimately take. I was very pleased. I would absolutely recommend working with Mike and Noelle in a heartbeat.” 


“We worked with Michael and Noelle, for our listing in palo alto. Mike, Noelle and the entire Dreyfus team were exceptional. We had a seamless experience with Dreyfus team taking care of getting the paperwork done, marketing and staging. While bringing in all the benefits associated with an experienced firm, there was still a personal touch in all our interactions with Michael and Noelle. They guided us through the pitfalls and in the right direction, truly acting as our advisors. At the end of the day people work with people, and Mike and Noelle were exceptional to work with.”

“If you are buying or selling a house on the peninsula, you need somebody who understands the market intimately, and I know of no better realtor than Mike for having that level of knowledge. The team approach makes it really easy for anybody to work with them, and get a house bought or sold. ”

— S. Walecka

“Michael was very realistic in talking about our property. He seemed very genuine. I said to him, ‘I know you’re not a fortuneteller, but can you tell me what the expectation is about when we sell the house?’ He said, ‘My guess is within sixty days.’ We got the offer on the sixtieth day. My perception before I started working with Michael was he’s a straight shooter.

After working with him, that didn’t change a bit. He doesn’t sugarcoat things, nor does he promise more than he can deliver. He’s up front with you; he discusses options. And he delivers on things he does say. Initially, we had a staging company we weren’t really happy with. Michael took the initiative to replace them at his own cost. That made a difference in presenting the house in a better light.

With Michael, you get a guy who markets your property with best practices available in the market. You know your house will be marketed brilliantly. Even better, you get somebody who’s very competent. You can count on him. I really appreciate what Michael does. He’s straightforward. You can trust him.”
