When I met Michael and Allie nearly a year before putting my home on the market, I knew right away I wanted them to represent me. Their knowledge of the market in West Hollywood is unparalleled. They know practically every building in town. When I called them asking to list my place in two weeks, they didn’t flinch. They got right to work and two weeks later we were having our first open house. My transaction could not have gone smoother thanks to them. There professionalism, expertise and communication helped make the process painless for me. I was constantly impressed at how responsive they were to each and every question I had. They were always available to me any time of day or night. They got me full asking price for my property, despite some glaring issues which could have been tougher to deal with if I had less experienced agent. If you don’t use Michael and Allie, you’re missing out.

To put it simply, Michael and Allie are the best. They are professional, on point, and most of all they are lovely people. As first time home buyers in 2009, we were intimidated by the whole buying process. Michael and Allie were highly recommended to us by a good friend and their knowledge, patience and guidance were exactly what we were looking for in a real estate agents. They were always available, day or night. We always felt like Michael and Allie truly cared that we were happy and that finding the perfect home for us was his top priority.

Now 5 years later, we are selling our first home and have gone to Michael and Allie again to guide us through our first home selling process. This time, they were wonderful, professional and kind, they make an excellent team and we have been nothing but pleased with both of them in regards to their professionalism, knowledge, responsiveness and guidance. They are a true pleasure to work with and we will 100% recommend them to friends and colleagues. We cannot begin to thank both Michael and Allie enough for everything they have done for us.

Andrew T., Buyer

I feel like the luckiest gal in the world to have been represented by Michael Collins and Allie Riley in the recent and very successful sale of my Norma Triangle condominium.  Having lived in it for almost 29 years, I was unaware of how much a real estate transaction had changed (gotten more complicated) over the years.

Their extensive knowledge and experience were invaluable in overcoming a couple of challenges related to the property.  With patience and professionalism they walked me through each step along the way, and their guidance and recommendations, whether it be listing price, staging, or escrow company, were perfect.  They were always available to me and every question, every phone call, every email was answered promptly.

They both brought so much more to my sale process (warmth, humor, and compassion) than I could have ever imagined was possible.  I highly recommend both Michael and Allie, because quite simply, they are the best, not only as superb real estate professionals who deliver first-class service, but also as fine gentlemen.

I have known Michael Collins and Allie Riley in a professional capacity since 2008, having worked with them on two transactions. They are the utmost real estate professionals. First, they are extremely responsive and available at a moment’s notice. They know our area extremely well (comps, our HOA, other listings, agents, city rules and proposed construction) which made them the ideal agents to list our property. Due to their realistic pricing, Michael and Allie sold our recent property the first week it was on the market. They were a pleasure to work with throughout the process and I would work with them again in a heartbeat. It is my pleasure to give Michael Collins and Allie Riley the highest recommendation if you are looking for a qualified, real estate professionals.

I was a first time seller and was a bit lost and nervous, Michael Collins and Allie Riley helped me through a very confusing and important time.  They were courteous and thoughtful. The open houses went smoothy, I always felt my home was in good hands and the sale was fast. It ended up being a much easier process than I had anticipated, largely due to the constant communication and advice Michael and Allie offer. I highly recommend them.

Michael and Allie have been wonderful to work with. They represented us in a purchase as well as a sale, and was incredibly attentive with both. They held our hands through every step of the process, and I felt confident in all of our decisions. The attention to detail and follow-through is rare, as is their honesty.

I’m incredibly satisfied with all of my experiences with Michael & Allie, and am very grateful for their time and energy.

Mike Rosenthal, Seller

I worked with Michael ten years ago, when I was looking for my first house. After months of patiently listening to me explain what I wanted (but couldn’t find), Michael found me the perfect home, at a price well below what I expected. Michael was the ultimate professional throughout that sale; tirelessly attuned to detail, always forward-thinking and conducting his business with only the highest standards in mind. A class act.

I had ten blissful years in my home, and when it came time to sell, Michael was my first call. All the same qualities that made him invaluable to me as a buyer were proven ten-fold as a seller. The process was much more involved and Michael expertly guided me through it; choosing the necessary renovations, deciding on a listing price, creating the marketing materials, overseeing the open house, navigating the almost dozen offers we received, and finally helping me deal with a nervous first-time buyer – much like I was ten years ago. Why is he such a great resource on either end of the deal? Because at the heart of Michael’s success is a simple credo, one that garners him both clients and other agents who seek out his advice and involvement. That a good sale is where a buyer and seller both walk away happy. If you share that belief, as I now do? Michael is your guy.

Michael Collins and Allie Riley represented us in our sale of a home located at 8728 West Knoll Drive. During their engagement, Michael and Allie acted with great diligence for every detail of the sale.

Michael and Allie not only had a deep knowledge of the pertinent market conditions but also suggested potential alternative sales strategies. They arranged and handled all aspects of the property setup, including painting, cleaning and site staging to show the home at its best. Michael and Allie held open house public viewings each weekend and conducted all private showings requested. Most importantly, they negotiated with the buyer’s agent and secured an all cash sale on our behalf and at a price most acceptable to us.

Following the opening of escrow, which was only 14 days, Michael and Allie ensured the quick turnaround of all inspections, monitored the breakdown of site staging, and engaged contractors for minor repairs and final cleaning.

We deeply appreciated this level of service and support and would enthusiastically recommend Michael Collins and Allie Riley.

While I have known Michael for over 40 years, I never knew him in a real estate capacity. When I told him of my recent divorce, he asked what my needs were. I was on a VERY short timeline to not only sell my house but I needed to rent a house….. With five animals no less! He hooked me up with his associate in the valley so as I was selling my house ( it sold in 21 days), his associate was looking for a rental for me so I could make a seamless transition. Now, you all might not be so lucky as to have a friend at the time of a divorce who is in real estate but I can tell you that you will NEVER find an agent as committed as Michael, nor as thorough and caring. He has a way about him, I guess its grace, which makes you feel extremely well taken care of, all while being honest about the state of the market.
