“Michael was our realtor when we sold our condo in Santa Clara. We were a challenging client, having a tight deadline under which to sell our place and being out of the country during key periods of the process. He provided an excellent stager and photographer and knew the right price point to offer our condo. Michael was able to work within our restrictions and get our condo sold.”

“Above and Beyond. That’s the best way I can describe our experience with Michael Nevis. We met Michael at an open house for a property he had listed. His style and approach was professional and engaging – and he really represented his seller well…and comfortable. We weren’t looking seriously – but walked away with the feeling that when we were ready to sell one of our two houses – he would be someone we would call. And we did…and more.Since that time – Michael has represented us as a seller’s agent for two homes, and was our buyer’s agent as we’ve purchased the property (vacant land) of our dreams.Both homes sold in record time and for very close to asking due to his great marketing, his network of contacts in the real estate field, and he guidance through offer and counter offer process.That might be enough for some…the pure results are there – which are amazing (did I mention one house had been on and off the market for 4 years?)
There’s more to Michael than just being a knowledgeable and successful professional. He is has a huge amount of understanding and compassion for the emotional aspects that come with buying and selling. He understood that this house we were selling was more than dirt and wood…selling a home where your kids have grown is quite emotional – and Michael understood that and supported us through the emotions that came.
Not to mention – he drove right up to our new property when our car got stuck in the mud and helped us!
Above and beyond…professionally and personally.”

“My experience with Michael Nevis has been great. He has patience and a fantastic knowledge of Bay Area real estate. Even though we did not end up selling our house he has continued to provide us with advice and counsel regarding real estate in the area. I would refer Michael Nevis to anyone because of his honesty and integrity.”
Kimberly | Los Gatos
“Michael Nevis helped my husband and I purchase our first home and it was a great experience working with him.He has extensive knowledge of the real estate market in the Bay Area and helped us narrow down neighborhoods, school districts and types of houses. Never having bought or sold a home before, we were very new to the process and a bit overwhelmed by the paperwork, timelines, rules, etc. but Michael patiently helped us through every step of the purchase of our home making sure we had all of the information we needed and could move forward with confidence.We love our new home and had an excellent experience working with Michael from early stages of searching and open houses to the final stages of negotiation – we would refer him to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Bay Area.”

“My husband and I met Michael at an open house last fall when we were looking to move to the Los Gatos/Saratoga area and we felt an immediate connection to him…Michael was always available when we needed him and he got us the house we were looking for…”
Julie | Saratoga
“After trying to sell our home in Saratoga for months, we were in the process of interviewing Realtors and were lucky enough to find Michael Nevis….Their help in writing descriptions, staging the house, arranging open houses and handling all the details was invaluable…we ended up selling the house within weeks, at a fantastic price.
Michael masterfully handled the negotiations with the buyers, supervised the inspections and saved us from several potentially costly mistakes…He made sure that every detail was taken care of. We definitely hope to be able to use him for our future purchases and sales.”

“Michael worked great as a team and did a terrific job for us in terms of developing a marketing plan, promoting the property, and keeping us informed of progress and status with regular and comprehensive communications.”

“I met Michael when he sold my friend’s property in Kennedy estates in Los Gatos in June 2013. They were so pleased with him, that I decided to have him handle the sale of my home. Michael provided an amazing level of service during the sale of my property. He organized the kitchen remodel, master bath remodel, and updating of my 20 year old Victorian style home in Los Gatos. He went above and beyond in helping to complete the project to get my home ready for market, including recruiting his wife to help re-hang the kitchen cabinet doors. His colleague, Monique did an incredible job of choosing and purchasing all of the items necessary for the remodel to keep my costs low, and the property looking great, and up to date.Because of their amazing job, I got an offer 4 days after listing the house, and closed 6 weeks later. Michael’s integrity, honesty, and ability to get results is hard to come by in today’s real estate market.
I will be a client for life based on the service that Michael provided during this sale, and could not offer a higher recommendation. Please feel free to contact me if I can be of any assistance.”

“Relocating from the East Coast with little notice and two teenagers isn’t easy – Michael was a God send. He helped us with every detail, was frank and honest in his assessments of the market and our needs, and found us the perfect place within the week. Quite significantly, he got it all to closing on our crunched time schedule.
He’s also been generous with his time and advice since then – we’ve done some work to our “new” home and wouldn’t have taken a step without his counsel. His knowledge and understanding of our new found “community” has been invaluable.
Can’t imagine trying to buy or sell around here without him!”
Ellen | Los Gatos
“An awesome agent. Michael has been my agent on 9 (!) Los Gatos real estate deals – both buying and selling, since 1994. He’s a tier 1 professional in the field: understands both sides of the process (buy/sell) and always is there for his clients.
He understands the market, the region and homes themselves -and knows how to get deals done. I’ve experienced other “agents” – and Michael is a shining example of what an agent should be and always represents his client’s needs. The best of the best.
Not only would I select him again, I’d be hard-pressed to trust anyone else.”
Derek | Los Gatos
“Michael Nevis has handled many real estate transactions for us over the past 15 years — and we can’t imagine anyone more knowledgeable, more personable, more responsive, and more sincerely concerned about our specific situation each and every time….He is dedicated to helping us achieve our goals and has the rare quality……
He and his team are always on top of the latest market developments and more than capable of the basics of listing, staging, arranging open houses, and most importantly, negotiating the final details of closing the transactions —- always with our wants and needs foremost in his mind….
There are no other agents as knowledgeable as Michael — he has taught other agents the ins and outs of the field for years — and we trust him implicitly and completely. If you believe you deserve the best in the business for your real estate needs, Michael Nevis is the best and only choice. Period.”
Henry | Los Gatos
“Throughout the entire process Michael provided us with sound guidance and advice, and did not simply tell us what we might have wanted to hear…I would work with them again without hesitation…I knew that when we decided to sell, finding the right realtor(s) was critical. We feel very fortunate to have worked with Michael.”
Laura | Saratoga
