Getting to know Michael Manfredi

Michael Manfredi is a serial entrepreneur with a wide range of expertise and accolades and the innate quality of exceeding expectations through hard work and experience.

His real estate business is a thoughtful concept to completion process involving a team of experts that bring together the various skills needed to satisfy real estate buyers, sellers, and investors at any stage of life. It is not unusual for Michael’s clients to rely on him to recommend and provide the services of many third-party providers including inspectors, appraisers, contractors, attorneys, CPAs, title and escrow, mortgage companies, furniture removal, junk removal, painting, flooring, interior design, staging, professional photography, drone photography, videography, deep cleaning, pressure washing, minor handyman repairs, property management, moving and storage and more. Michael knows that some real estate transactions are detailed and take time while others are just quick liquidations. Some sellers will greatly benefit by cleaning, painting, and staging while others just need the best photography and marketing.

Whatever the transaction dictates and the buyer's or sellers’ needs are, Michael has the skill set to apply to give them an advantage in the very competitive marketplace of Southern California.
Upon hiring him, Michael will guide you through detailed documentation and provide creative ways for you to keep leverage during the purchase or sale process.

Having been a lender for many years, Michael has seen hundreds of appraisals and valuation methods, and this benefits his clients whether they are about to purchase or sell.
