Testimonials

We have purchased or sold 5 properties with the Caruso Team and they consistently go out if their way to make each transaction perfect. Every detail is managed meticulously and our properties are marketed aggressively. As an out of town client, they regularly take on numerous extra responsibilities to support us, and always with a smile. Trustworthy, honest, professional, knowledgeable and willing to work hard day or night to buy low and sell high. My highest regard goes out to this hard working team of professionals!

Mr. & Mrs. Keenen – Seller & Buyer

The Caruso Group was incredible. They went well beyond our expectations to get the job done. They knew that for us to get top dollar for our Laguna Beach home we needed to update & refresh the interior. They hired the professionals and consulted a major 4 month remodel, then hired a fantastic stager and marketed our home in every outlet. Our home sold with multiple offers! Since then, we have bought and sold two more homes with the Caruso Group. We will be clients forever, but more importantly, life long friends!

Mr. Holcomb & Family – Seller & Buyer

I listed my home for 9 months with an area specialistwith no results. I Re-listed with Michael and he sold my home in 7 days! I’m delighted.

Mr. Wishman – Seller

Mr. Siverson – Seller & Buyer

Decided to work with the Caruso’s after we weren’t getting results with other agents. Michael and his team blew us away with his real estate knowledge and overall experience to get us our house! We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a real deal agent.

Mr. Schlegel – Buyer

The Caruso Group was fantastic to work with. They were extremely knowledgable about the marketplace and went above and beyond throughout the entire process – from start to finish.

Mr. Biddinger – Buyer

Michael and his team are outstanding with a “can do” attitude.They are very knowledgeable on the local market and after finding the house we wanted, had top notch vendor contacts that we are still using. They embrace the electronic closing technology with minimal paper signing and suggested negotiating things in the purchase contract we would not have thought of. We highly recommend Michael and his team.

Mr. & Mrs. Baker – Buyer

Michael’s expertise in selling our house alleviated all of the stress. We worked together to develop a timeline, reviewed recent transactions, and created a smart go-to market strategy. Now we can enjoy our new home, in which Michael helped us purchase. We could not be happy with our overall transaction: buying & selling with Michael’s team!

Mr. & Mrs. Kazolas – Buyer & Seller

Exceptional Results from Exceptional Realtor We decided to list our house in Big Canyon and planned to interview realtors to see which firm could best represent our interests. We looked no further after our initial meeting with Michael and Phillip Caruso. Our comments about their performance apply not only from the initial interview but through the entire listing and selling process to the closing. They arrived for the interview with documentation filed with the city, on the remodel and upgrades we had made to the property since our purchase… They had done their homework and were able to establish a listing value. As with any seller our objective was to maximize our return and the bottom line is that the…

Mrs. Nasi – Seller

MC, you are a legend! I don’t see a scenario where someone could have represented our interest better than Michael did. As a first time home buyer, Michael educated us every step of the way and truly treated our purchase as if it was his own. He was always one step ahead of everyone else, and helped us secure our home at a price below asking. MC, we are incredibly grateful for everything you did to ensure we had the best possible experience and get the home we wanted!

Mr. & Mrs. Cemo – Buyer

Michael has represented me 3 times in the past 14 years. He is a true professional with the knowledge and experience to get your transaction completed successfully. Don’t hesitate to give him a call if you want the best.

Mr. B – Buyer & Seller

Don’t ever buy a home without Michael. He is an absolute pro and knows how to get his clients what they want. Our dream home came on the market the day before California’s shelter in place orders, but Michael figured out how to get us our house in less than 45 days. With so much uncertainty in the market, it’s important to have a seasoned agent who can take all the hassle out of home buying and serve as your advocate. We would never ever ever go anywhere else. Thank you!!!! We are over the moon in our new home.

Private – Buyer

The Consummate Professional Michael Caruso is hands down the best real estate professional that I’ve ever had the pleasure of dealing with. His keen eye for design helped me get my property ready for sale. His superior market knowledge helped set the correct price for my home and his innovative marketing strategy bought a plethora of qualified buyers to our doorstep. Michael and his team kept me extremely well informed of their progress throughout the process and were unwavering in their diligent efforts to sell my home. That passion and dedication led to my home being sold for a price that I was very happy with. Michael is a consummate pro and an excellent communicator, making the process as smooth…

Mr. W – Seller

Caruso Team Gets it sold quickly for out of state seller Through working with Michael Caruso and his exceptional team over the years, I have bought and sold a number or residential properties in Orange County. Michael’s long experience in real estate gives him a distinct edge in negotiations having represented me as a both a buyer and a seller. When it has appeared that deals were beginning to unwind on the opposite side of the table, Michael knows how to keep the negotiations going with a positive outcome for me. I’ve seen Michael go to areas of negotiation that I certainly never thought of…and that comes with deep real estate experience. Having moved to Prescott, AZ a few years…

Mr. Alfaro – Seller & Buyer

Perfect Experience Phil and Michael work harder than any real estate group we’ve ever been associated with. Their tireless marketing of our home was first class in every way. We felt like our home was their top priority. They have so many connections in the area and worked to find the right buyer who would appreciate the major work we had put into renovating our family home of 25 years. They succeeded in 5 short weeks to bring us a beautiful family and full price offer. Thank you Carusos
