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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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!”

“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!”
