Michael is wonderful! He helped us secure a property that went into multiple offers, which is amazing. He made the buying process seamless and stress-free. We live out of state, so we depended on Michael for pretty much everything, and when we came into town, he made himself available for whatever we needed. We can’t say enough good things about Michael and we are so grateful to have found him!

We bought a property with Michael - it was a great experience.

Then we sold that property with Michael - it was a great experience.

Then we bought another property with Michael - it was a great experience.

What more can we say?

A Bay Area realtor referred us to Michael. He made the entire buying experience wonderful - the perfect balance of responsiveness and informative. As First time buyers, we couldn’t have asked for better guide.

After seven full years of on-and-off-again looking with Michael for the just-right house in Palm Springs, we finally closed on a home that suits us perfectly. It may be his longest sales cycle ever, yet through it all he was consistently amazing and eager to help. Our criteria changed as life changed over the years and Michael supported us the whole way. He was and remains upbeat, professional, and caring. He always kept our best interest in mind. Perseverance and patience paid off in the end for us all, I'm happy to say. Over this long period of time we recommended friends to him and will continue to do so. You'd be well-served to engage his services if you're in the market.

Michael Slate was great to work with! He was very attentive to our preferences, super responsive to the many questions we had and supported us in ensuring we were comfortable with every aspect of the deal. He helped us buy an amazing home and we wouldn't hesitate to work with him again.

Had the pleasure and privilege to work with Michael on the sale of our condo in Palm Springs. The process and sale was seemless and highly recommend Michael and his team. Also handling the project whilst we were away had its challenges that Michael handled every step of the way to ensure the process was smooth. We do hope to work with Michael again on a future purchase . The best !

Micheal Slate is the MVP of real estate. My situation was really tough to work with trying to buy and sell at the same time. Michael Slate made this process seamless and possible. He stayed positive and he kept me positive when it looked like things were stalling. I can’t say enough about how knowledgeable, professional, trustworthy, patient, honest, helpful, Michael Slate is. He will always be number one in my book!! If you want to buy or sell your home and not be concerned about whether or not your realtor is really looking out for you then Michael Slate is your guy!!! The GOAT of real estate!!

Michael and the Elevate Palm Spring Team were phenomenal! Michael was able to identify what my wife and I were searching for, and then take us to it. He was great with communication, and would return our calls and/or text messages almost immediately, even if just to inform us he was with another client and would get back to us soon. He has guided us, and continues to guide us, with our journey of breaking into the STR industry with our new house. Michael always made sure to relay any and all information he would receive from the seller/builder, escrow agents, and lender. We really appreciate how he was more than willing to work around our hectic work schedule, as we are healthcare professionals that work the night shift (6:30pm-7:30am) at the hospital. Michael just had that good energy!
We can't recommend Michael enough and can't wait to work with him again when we look for our next purchase!

Michael sold our home in record time, and for an amazing price. But more importantly, Michael Slate is a man of exceptional integrity, and someone with whom you immediately feel comfortable working with. Michael is both Friendly and accommodating, as well as competent and efficient. Michael gets my highest recommendation, and I know that anyone looking to sell their home will be lucky to have Michael Slate working on their behalf. Thank you Michael - it was a sincere pleasure working with you! V/r, Bob T.

Michael was referred to us from our Bay Area realtor. We couldn’t be happier. Michael remained responsive and informative through the whole buying process. As First time buyers, we couldn’t have asked for better guidance. We genuinely felt that Michael prioritized our happiness, rather than just another sale of a home. He went above and beyond, putting us in touch with necessary contractors. We hope to continue to work with Michael with all of our real estate needs.

Michael and his team were a pleasure to work with! The property showings and open houses were well-planned and executed with ease. Great communication and professionalism from Michael, his team, and escrow helped make the sale of our property simple and straight-forward. Thank you, Michael! And a big thank you to Kathy, and everyone at 'Elevate Palm Springs!' ~ Highly Recommend

It was truely a wonderful experience selling our home through Michael. He kept us informed every step of the way & was able to get multiple offers over the asking price within three days of listing. We owe him our special thanks as he closed the deal while we were on a safari tour to east Afica. Our sincere appreciation & good wishes.

After traveling yearly to the Coachella Valley to escape the often harsh winter weather, we determined now was the time to search for a home for our retirement years. Thankfully we were so fortunate to have been referred to Michael Slate to lead us through this purchase. Michael had amazing insights as we looked at different areas and openly shared his own personal thoughts and concerns. The information he provided in the early days of our search allowed us to narrow in quickly to the ideal area.

As our search progressed while we weren’t in CA, it was evident we had partnered with the perfect resource in Michael. He was patient, fully engaged and forthcoming and expertly led us in the right direction.

In short, Michael was on our side working to make our purchase as simple and successful as possible. The best part about working with Michael was that he was always more focused on answering our questions and giving us good advice, than he was on closing a deal. We absolutely and whole-heartedly recommend Michael and will definitely work with him again.

With his knowledge of the unique nature of each city Michael helped me find the perfect place for me. His expertise and responsiveness put me at ease and made the the buying process go very smoothly. I highly recommend Michael and his team.

Once again Michael worked his magic.
We just sold our home in Desert park estate. No need to put down a number but let's just say that we catered the record for home values in the Desert Park Estate neighborhood.
Michael's advice and intel was crucial and his moral support guided us through this very emotional transition.

Michael Slate is truly an amazing professional!! Not only did Michael nail down so easily the perfect condo for me to purchase, he nurtured me through what would normally be such a stressful experience with calm and ease. He always made himself available for any questions and guidance throughout the whole experience. Do yourself a favor and do not go past hiring Michael to represent you in buying or selling your property.

Michael is a consummate professional and a wonderful person in general. He went above and beyond in my search for a home and gave me a thorough overview of the geography, neighborhoods, and other aspects of the real estate search that were instrumental in my final property acquisition.

I’ve worked with numerous realtors and Michael stands above them all. He has been an absolute delight to work with and I recommend him and his team with zero hesitation. I look forward to working with Michael again for my future needs. Thank you Mike and Elevate Team!

Michael has been instrumental in navigating the stressful process of finding a home in Palm Springs. My partner and I have struggled to find a place to call home. inventory is low and our standards are high. Michael has been by our side every step and he helped us find and secure a beautiful property.
I think Michael's best quality is communication and punctuality. There were no surprises at each corner, he anticipated and tackled problems before they become obstacles.
Highly recommend Michael Slate.

I have had Michael Slate represent me in the sale of a house in Palm Springs and the subsequent purchase of another property in Palm Springs almost a full year later. He is always very quick to respond to my texts or emails. He goes above and beyond to make sure everything goes smoothly in any real estate transaction. I highly recommend using Michael for any of your real estate needs!

Wow! Micheal Slate and his team at Elevate Palm Springs are truly amazing. I've bought and sold many homes and this transaction went so very smoothly. Hire Michael as your realtor and you won't be disappointed!

We were referred to Michael by friends that had a great experience. By the time we'd met up with him we had identified a property we were interested in and Michael brought it together seamlessly and negotiated a significant discount on our behalf. He was always available and extremely responsive throughout the process and kept things moving on the seller's side as well. He and his staff have their eyes on the details and were a pleasure to work with.

As a fellow professional RE agent on the other side of the transaction as a buyer for a change I can highly recommend Michael Slate as one of the finest agents I've ever met and done business with. His knowledge was extensive, negotiating skills effective in getting us a fair deal in a very hot market, and he handles difficult customers (me) with great care and patience. Can''t say enough about the guy.

I laughed at myself a few times when I got off the phone and realized that I had become one of the customers I have to handle tactfully and graciously and let the client catch up in his thinking with what were really the facts at hand. Michael was very savvy at that... and he went above and beyond in a lot of ways. Highly recommended.

At the top of the top tier is where you will find Michael Slate and his team in professionalism, integrity, creativity and tenacity. I worked with Michael as both the purchaser and then again as the seller, in both instances Michael took all the time needed and yet was committed to moving the process along expeditiously. Smoothly taking a Home to the market and closing in two weeks demonstrated the high caliber team of professionals Michael has surrounded himself with.
