What can we say about Michael Collins and Allie Riley? Simply the best we can imagine. It is said that aside from the loss of a loved one, few things are more stressful than moving. We have worked with Michael & Allie, buying and selling three properties over the past two decades, and there is no two we can imagine trusting and enjoying more through what can sometimes be an emotional process. They maintain a spirit of calm confidence and compassion to help get you through it. They will always be honest with you, but never get pushy or arrogant. They know their stuff. On top of everything else, they always finds time to give back to the community. Thank you both. We are not just your clients – we are your friends. It’s been a honor.

We can’t say enough about how wonderful it was to work with Michael and Allie. We have bought and sold many properties in our lives, and we have never experienced such a smooth and painless escrow. They are so professional and on point. We felt we could just rest into his experience and advice. We never want to buy or sell a property without him again! They give the profession a great name. We highly recommend them for all of your Real Estate needs.

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. 

Jesse Kane, Seller

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.
