We couldn't have asked for a better selling experince. The Berman Team was extremely professional, set the right expectations, and managed the process flawlessly. The experience in selling, buying, and financing offers a unique perspective and experience that will give you an edge as you make your next big move. I would absolutely recommend the Berman's for any residential moves.

I had the greatest experience buying my new home with Michelle Berman from Berman Estates! Michelle was knowledgeable and most importantly HONEST and TRUSTWORTHY. She always responded to my text messages, emails, or phone calls immediately. Working with Michelle Berman as my agent made home buying a positive experience. I highly recommend Michelle & Keith Beman of Berman Estates Real Estate Group!

Michelle and Keith provided us with guidance from the moment we decided to sell our home. They gave us suggestions which we followed on how to "stage" our home. I truly believe it was because of their recommendations that we received the multiple offers on our home and were able to get our asking price. There was some hand holding which Michelle was happy to do as this was our first time going through this process. We are so grateful for them and would highly recommend their services to anyone.

I don't know enough positive adjectives to describe what an excellent and knowledgeable real estate agent Matt Berman is! I needed an agent because I saw a property that was a couple of blocks down from my house and wanted to purchase it for my son. Since the property was an trustee sale and on the market for 5 days, I was worried that they would close the bidding before I could get my offer in. That night I was fortunate to be given Matt's name. Although I had never work with him, I contacted him late that night and by the next day he submitted my bid. There were quite a few offers for the property but his knowledge of real estate was a wonderful assess in helping us place the winning bid. Throughout the process he was advising us of what was happening and was always available for questions and concerns. Thank you Matt for making the process so easy. Lorraina Pickett

Michelle and Keith are the best and at the top the game with some 50 years of marketing and lending real estate experience between them. Highly professional and efficient. Excellent use of technology. They drive the deal rather than waiting for others to act. The best part though was getting to know them and experiencing what fun and caring people they are! I met them on a rainy afternoon when I was only just beginning to consider buying a house. They turned “what if” into a quick reality. We would not have even listed our house, and instead would have spent years putting off the decision to continue working on an endless list of things we thought necessary to sell. They encouraged us to just list our home as is and see what might happen. Within a few hours of listing, we had walk throughs. Within 24 hours we had 15 walk throughs and within 36 hours we had 4 written offers all above asking. All in the midst of COVID. Michelle and Keith, thank you!

I recently worked with Michelle Berman and the Berman Estates team on the sale of our home in Escondido. From start to finish, we were provided with care, concern, professionalism and excellent communication. We were presented with the task of the sale of this home, the purchase of a new home in another state, and coordinating the move, and Michelle worked flawlessly with our out of state agent, our lender, and the escrow company to help ensure a smooth transition. Would and have recommended Berman Estates to others.

Thank you Michelle for making us feel like family and as if we were your only client. It was our pleasure working with you. You were always there for us. This has been the best real estate experience we have ever had!

Michelle and her team are life savers! They did an amazing job and made us feel comfortable with the whole process. We had to sell our house at the same time as finding a new one, so timing was extremely important! We couldn’t be happier with the outcome.

Michelle sold us our house in 2010. We were so impressed with her that eight years later in 2018 when we were ready to sell our house we chose Michelle to represent us. She is knowledgeable, knows how to properly price your house, and makes herself available to give you advice and answer questions. We lived out of state throughout the process. Michelle helped us take care of all the work that had to be done that we couldn't coordinate from out of state. We could not be happier with our decision to go with Michelle.

Michelle and Keith Berman are such a genuine and highly capable couple! They did a wonderful job of working through numerous challenges in the purchase of our new home. We wouldn't hesitate to use them again!

Michelle & Keith did a fantastic job selling our home. We interviewed four realtors and made the decision to work with them because we felt that would personally ensure that everything was handled to my expectation, and they didn't let me down. When they say they are going to do something, they don't send their assistant, they do it themselves to ensure it's done right. Highly recommended.

Senior Escrow Officer
I am an escrow officer and have worked with thousands of real estate agents and brokers. Michelle has been simply amazing on every real estate transaction I have been a part of. She is extremely involved throughout the transaction and gives strong guidance to her clients throughout which makes her clients at ease. I get positive feedback from her clients and they rarely need my help as Michelle has already walked them through the process. It is a rare pleasure to work with such a knowledgeable and detail oriented professional who makes the escrow go so much smoother. I wish I had more clients that were as proactive and available as Michelle. I highly recommend Michelle to anyone looking to sell or buy a home as she has extensive experience and her customer service cannot be paralleled.

Michelle and the folks @ Berman Estates did a great job in getting our house sold. We had problems with the house along the way and Michelle and her team came up with solutions that worked for both parties. We would recommend Berman Estates to everyone.

As a first time home buyer, Michelle and Keith were AWESOME!!!

They helped us to sell the condo and buy our first house at the same time, all process was done so smoothly within a month! We even received FOUR offers for our condo within two days on market. AMAZING!!

Michelle and Keith are so patient, knowledgeable, professional and helped us every step. They even spent extra time with us and walked us through the whole process in detail.

Highly recommend Mathew Berman. Made our first time buying simple and helped us the whole way through. Sending many referrals his way!

We were SO HAPPY with the excellent and professional job that the Berman Team did on selling our house in Encinitas Ranch. They went above and beyond in every way to calm our nerves and answer our questions. They are not only highly skilled in the business of selling homes but also in "people management." We would strongly recommend them to sellers and buyers.

This was the fifth real estate transaction we have done with Michelle and Keith Berman over the past 20 years and there is a reason we keep coming back to them. They are extremely knowledgeable of both the real estate market and the lending industry. Personally, they present exceptionally well and their collateral marketing materials are first class. They listen closely to their clients and don't waste time with things that would be of little or marginal value to the client. They are everything that is good about premier real estate professionals and are good community citizens. With this last property sale, we are not longer residents of San Diego and we shall miss the whole Berman team. We cannot recommend them highly enough.

Berman Estates assisted us with both the purchase and sale of our home. Our home sold in just a few days for a record high sale price in the community! Our new home is wonderful and the Berman Estates team made the purchasing process very smooth.

Keith & Michelle Berman are a complete real estate team. Keith's knowledge of the mortgage market and Michelle's 25+ years in real estate sales speaks for itself, AND adding Nicole & Matt enables the Team to have additional eyes on the real estate trends.
My experience couldn't have gone smoother. Michelle kept me informed of approaching timelines in both my sale & purchase, eliminating any anxiety I might have.
I would highly recommend The Team for your next real estate purchase

We signed with Bermans to handle our home sale because we knew of their stellar reputation and proven success. Michelle was the most professional, knowledgeable, thorough, hard-working real estate agent we've ever had the pleasure to work with. She's incredibly smart about the housing market, knows all the contractual issues inside and out and does everything possible, and more, to ensure a seamless process from the minute you list through to the last detail following close. This was a completely stress-free experience for us due entirely to Michelle's work ethic, knowledge and professionalism, and she knows better than anyone how to close a deal In your favor. Thank you Michelle, you are absolutely awesome!

Michelle and Keith Berman came to our Encinitas Ranch home to discuss marketing our home in July 2016. We weren't quite ready to show the home yet and explained that we would probably move out first and show it empty as we had already bought our new home out of state. Talking to them was very pleasant and easy and we knew that they had at one time lived in Encinitas Ranch and were very familiar with how beautiful and lovely a community it is. I also remembered that Michelle had sold homes in our area during the 2008-2009 economic downturn, a very difficult time for home sales, and figured she could get the job done. Well, we were right. House went up for sale last week of August and closed Escrow first week of November. The negotiations went well as Michelle is a very experienced realtor and was on top of every situation. She is very honest in her assessment of what to realistically expect and helped make each step in the process easy for us. She also works with a great title and Escrow company. So we highly recommend Berman Estates for the sale of your home. They not only get the job done but are always accessible and so nice to work with while the home is being shown and eventually going through the Escrow process .We feel Berman Estates was a wise choice.

My wife, Cathy, and I lived in our two-story San Marcos home for 8 years when we decided to move to a one floor house. Before we found the property in western Nevada that appealed to us we had already interview several real estate agents. We selected Keith and Michelle to help us with the sale of our property.

We could not have been more pleased! The photographs and descriptive text that were used to create our listing were outstanding! It was clear that our house was not just another listing to Michelle and Keith. They truly liked our house and wanted to help us get the best possible return.

The day the listing appeared on the internet we had our first showing. We had a signed purchase agreement for a cash offer within three days and the closing followed without a hitch on our own preferred timetable. The entire event occurred seamlessly.

We cannot recommend Michelle and Keith Berman with more enthusiasm. Their care, skill, and judgement when managing the sale of our home was flawless, and they could not have been more fun to work with.

Buyer and Seller
We have known Michelle and Keith for a few years and have always been impressed by the way they handle themselves. So, when the time came to sell our home and buy another one we contacted them. Ten days later our house was sold and we had bought another home. Not only that, but we sold our house for more than we hoped to get and helped us buy a home for significantly less than we expected to pay. It could not have gone any better for us and we give all the credit to Michelle and Keith for making it happen. They work extremely hard for their customers; yet never make you feel pushed into anything. Even when we started to freak out at the 11th hour because everything was moving so fast, they gave us the space to work through our emotions without feeling pressure or quilt about it. They truly understand the significance of the home selling/buying process from their clients perspective and do not ever allow their own personal feelings/needs to get in the way. We love these guys and cannot state emphatically enough how highly we recommend them!! They did a fantastic job for us and helped make our dreams come true.
