    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.”"

    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.”"
