No matter which city they move to or from, Michael Chez’s clients call him for help selling or finding their new homes. “My clients want me because they know they can trust me to look out for their best financial interests,” Michael explains. “Los Angeles, New York, Malibu—it makes no difference. I go where my clients go and they can be confident that I’ll find the property they’re looking for at a good value or sell their property with the highest return, maximizing their profit.”
Michael got his start in the real estate industry in 1996, after a knee injury cut short a promising professional tennis career. After a friend in the business told him he had the perfect personality and drive to be a Realtor, he started a job as an administrative assistant for a year and a half with White House Properties, learning the ropes from two top agents as he studied for his license. Once he got licensed and began doing his own deals, he quickly created his own niche in the market.
“I sell single-family homes, estates, townhomes, condos and multi-family buildings anywhere from $500,000 to $10,000,000 and up, but my specialty is luxury homes in the San Fernando Valley and Westside Los Angeles including surrounding beach cities. I represent a broad spectrum of clientele, including first- time buyers, sellers, investors, celebrities, athletes and world-renowned physicians who appreciate the level of customer service they get with my brand.
Whether they’re buying or selling, Michael tailors a strategy specific to each client’s needs. It’s the kind of attention to detail he’s known for, and has earned him a repeat client and referral rate of 95 percent. Having surpassed over $850 million and counting in closed transactions, he’s exceeded all expectations, consistently earning him the most highly regarded awards in the industry. He prides himself on providing renowned professional service, combined with global marketing exposure, while offering a fresh take on effective strategies. Michael is the recipient of the 2020 Rodeo Realty’s President’s Circle Award and is ranked in the Top 1% of all Realtors nationwide.
Being an L.A. native himself, he possesses knowledge that can only be acquired from growing up in the very territory he services. Specializing in Luxury Estates, Residential, and Multifamily property, he is well versed in all aspects. He credits that success in part to his broad knowledge of the industry, but more so to the relationships he builds with his clients. “When you work with someone through the house-hunting or selling process, you get to know them pretty well. My clients love working with me because they know I produce results above and beyond their expectations while being honest and transparent, giving them as much knowledge and advice as possible so they feel confident making their final decision.”
Michael utilizes all the social media platforms, email campaigns, mailers, and his own extensive network to market his listings, but he’s always on the lookout for fresh new strategies with the “out of the box” mentality to improve the level of service he provides.
When not working, Michael gives part of his time to the American Cancer Society, volunteering with their Relay for Life. He’s also active in his community and is one of the sponsors for Sherman Oaks Elementary.
Going forward, Michael plans to add more members to his team to help him keep up with the growing volume. He’s already on track to double his production from last year and has already surpassed his own records early on in 2021.
