Jim & Susie Tierney

Thank you for selling our house in Coto!

We dealt with you both as the selling agent when we bought the house and again, 9 years later, as our own listing agent. We went with you because we were confident in your knowledge of the local Coto market which showed itself in helping us with pricing our house correctly in today’s market.

You were extremely helpful to us, particularly while our house was unoccupied.

Thanks for a job well done.”

“Like many of you on this site, I have known Mike Ameel as both a friend and a golfing buddy for well-over 15 years. As most of you know, Mike is a successful residential real estate broker and represents sellers and buyers in Coto, Dove Canyon, Palmia and other residential communities in South County. I had never worked with Mike in his professional capacity until February of this year. Mike represented us when we bought our new home in Palmia (Mission Viejo). He then listed our home in Dove Canyon for sale. I’m pleased to report that sale closed this week and all is completed. Throughout the entire purchase and sale processes, we found Mike to be knowledgeable, professional, highly competent and always pleasant and willing to take a call and give an explanation. To get the sale of our home completed, we had to implement some negotiation and strategy. Mike was clearly up-to-the-task and gave us great advice. Sometimes, I called upon him to explain the same thing a second or third time over a period of a few days. Mike was always cheerful, willing to do so and never made it seem like I was troubling him with the many calls and text messages we exchanged over the months we worked together. In a nut shell — Mike is a true professional. Sometimes in life we become friends with people but when we use them for professional services (or goods), we end up being disappointed. That was NOT the case with Mike Ameel. I would use him again (though I am not planning to move 😀). Furthermore, I can happily recommend Mike to you professionally, without any reservations whatsoever. He is the best!”

“Just a quick note to let you know how much I appreciate the professionalism that you exhibited from start to finish in selling our house in Coto De Caza. In a challenging real estate market it is imperative that you work with someone that not only has intimate knowledge of the market, but also someone that will tell you what you need to hear instead of what you might hope to hear. That is how you not only earn trust but it is more importantly, how you have earned the stellar reputation you have in Coto.

As you know I was forced to relocate before the sale was finalized. But as a result of your being in constant contact and the tremendous assistance of the other members of The Mike Ameel Team. I had no worries that the transaction would be finalized.

Mike thanks again for being a true sales professional. I wish you continued success in all that life brings your way.”

“I have been in the Real Estate business in many different facets for as long as I can remember.

Growing up in our home meant having to know Real Estate and Lending.

After meeting Mike Ameel through the purchase of a home in Coto 7 years ago, I found out we grew up in the same City.

I knew right then, he had to be a great guy!

That purchase was the most pleasant Real Estate transaction I had ever experienced. Mike knows the business like no other.

He works hard to make it right for you. Mike has the kind of personality that can bring people together to make the purchase or sale as smooth and quick as possible.

I have purchased and sold several homes since with Mike Ameel by my side.

He has not only become my personal Real Estate Agent for life, but a true friend for life as well.

Thank you Mike for all you’ve done for our family.”

“We have used Mike on our last 3 Coto real estate transactions. We could not have been more pleased with his level of professionalism, competence, and honesty. Most importantly to us, he’s a nice guy…
We can’t imagine working with anyone else!”

“We’ve known Mike Ameel for over ten years. And, we’ve purchased two homes from him. Each time, we swear it will be the last. So, for openers, you know he’s a good salesman.

But more important to us, Mike is hard-working, tenacious, thorough, ethical, and knowledgeable. Few agents, if any, can match his experience in our local real estate markets. He’s also realistic. That’s a big plus in today’s more competitive and challenging markets. That’s why we’ve
recommended him to friends in the past. And, will in the future.

There are none better!”

“Dear Fortunate Prospective Mike Ameel Client:

Let me tell you how lucky you are. You are about to embark on a journey through professional real estate service matched by few in the business.

I believe I can speak to this, since my dad sold over 800 homes in Pasadena, California in the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s and his father before him developed most of the Mid-Wilshire Commercial District of Los Angeles.

I met Mike early in the summer of 1994 when my wife and I were considering a move from Irvine to Coto de Caza, and, after first meeting Mike’s mom, Ginny, and then Mike on an open house in Coto, I knew I was dealing with someone very special, who clearly cared about the people he served. I have an inkling of the difference between people who feign caring for their clients, and those who really do- I’ve been a Fraud Examiner, investigating white collar crime for over 27 years.

Mike will give you unparalleled service. We’ve all heard that colloquy before, but in this case it’s true.

And how often, after the sale (in our case, multiple purchases and sales, sales and purchases involving family members, friends and other referrals) does your Realtor become one of your genuinely closest friends? In my experience, not very often.

Let me close by telling you again, that you will have no better real estate experience than allowing Mike to handle what, for most people, is their single largest and most important asset.

He handles all of mine, and always will.”

“As a resident of Coto de Caza for the last 17 years, I would heartily recommend Mike Ameel as a truly professional Realtor.

Mike’s knowledge of the area, sense of fairness, dilligence, persistence and ability to work with others contributes to his overall professionalism and success.

His exercise of all these characteristics proved itself in his sale of one of our residences and his valued assistance in the purchase of our current home.

He’s a great guy to work with!”

“My wife and I have known Mike Ameel for several years. He is without a doubt a true professional and a fine humanitarian.

With Mike’s help we searched for our home in Coto de Caza for over a year. Throughout that entire time Mike was extremely knowledgeable and courteous helping us through an extrememly difficult situation. When we finally found the perfect house we were able to close the deal and secure a number of concessions with the sharp negotiating skills of Mike Ameel.

As an attorney and former president of the Rotary Club of Coto de Caza/ Rancho Santa Margarita, I can honestly say that Mike Ameel is without a doubt the finest Realtor we have ever met.”
