With close to a decade of service as a Realtor, Michael Soon has been able to turn a passion into a successful career. As a native San Franciscan home-grown in the Sunset District, San Francisco was his playground. Michael’s love for San Francisco and real estate is rooted all the way back to his childhood, when helped his parents manage several properties. Throughout those years he gained experience with property construction, repair, tenant placement, relationship management and customer service. These experiences are the foundation that Michael builds upon as a Realtor.
Mike Soon did an incredible job with my home in Millbrae, managing the entire process, from hiring contractors, to overseeing all necessary upgrades, to finally listing and selling the property for well over asking. Working on a very tight schedule, Mike was knowledgeable, diligent, thorough, and always optimistic. And he communicated what was happening every step of the way. He made a daunting job seem easy. I’d highly recommend Mike to anyone selling a home.
Michael has helped our family purchase multiple properties over the past few years. He is very knowledgeable about the current real estate trends in the Bay Area, responsive to all our inquiries even after normal working hours, and has always come through with the winning strategy. In our most recent transaction, Michael showed us a property, worked with the seller’s agent to get us more time to write up our offer (we discovered that offers were due at noon the next day!), and gave us solid tips to help get our offer accepted all within 24 hours of contacting him! We can’t thank him and his team enough for their tireless efforts on every transaction and would highly recommend his services to everyone!
We are so fortunate enough to work with Michael Soon for the sale of our newly constructed home. We have worked with Michael Soon on other sales and he has always delivered. When pricing our home Michael took us and visited several comps to get a better idea of where we should price our home. He is very analytical in regards to the local housing climate.
Michael and his Climb Real Estate team did an excellent job to make our property stand out. The overall marketing process was a breeze. We utilized different media to market our home, including professional photos, video, drone and virtual tour. We full-heatedly believe that this approach showcased our property in the best light.
Michael’s responsiveness was immediate and highly professional. Throughout the entire process he always took the time to discuss any concerns we had. Whether our communication was through phone, email or text, Michael would respond in a very reasonable amount of time. This is a character trait that has really made Michael stand out as a stellar agent.
Lastly, Michael’s negotiation skills are strategic and well thought out. During the sale Michael used effective verbal communication and was able to reduce misunderstandings. He was assertive in problem solving and was able to build rapport with different interested buyers. These skills really did result in the best possible outcome and I would recommend Michael to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a property in the Bay Area.
Mr. Soon is the most talented real estate professional I have ever worked with. I have bought and sold a lot of houses. My prior impression of real estate agents is that they get paid a lot of money to put the house on multiple listing and nothing more. Mr. Soon is the exception. When it came time to sell the family house which had been in the family for 70 plus years, I need somebody who could help get the house prepped for sale. It need renovations; I needed cash for renovations. I need some to manage what should be left as is and what should be renovated. I live on the east coast and needed someone to manage. Who do I call for anything. Mr. Soon had all the answers. He has the contacts to get things done. As far as marketing, Mr. Soon is the real pro. Photos, staging, videos, printed materials, or whatever, Mr. Soon did everything first class. We not only sold our house, but we got nearly 25% over the asking price. Had I tried to do any of these things on my own, I would have been stuck in the weeds. Mr. Soon earned every penny of his commission. And he changed my impression of what a real estate professional is.
Mike Soon has shown to be professional in his approach with follow up, communication, attitude, and ethics. He is efficient in handling all transactions and returns messages immediately. Demonstrated that he is highly knowledgeable in all matters of real estate including market, locality, trends, timing, etc. Very responsible for all details, involved in all transactions with affiliating agencies. Shares information that facilitate decision-making quickly with clients. Effective in all forms of communication and prompt in returning calls. Outstanding among peers as we have had much experience in buying and selling. Mike takes business seriously, yet, he is able to have a personable and warm relationship with us. Fortunate to have one of the best in his field who worked diligently through the entire process, especially in a challenging area like San Francisco. We could not have had a better experience and outcome! The property sold at a record high beyond our expectations!
Michael is the prime example of professionalism with a personal touch. I recommended him to my best friend and a family member, before we even closed! Without him, his hard work, and diligence, I know it would have definitely impacted our offer being accepted, and our smooth closure. He took mental notes of why my husband and I passed on houses, remembered it, and used it for future listings. He is extremely thorough, and proactive. He was patient, ethical, and truthful. Michael’s thoughtfulness showed by him doing things before we even asked for it. He’s responsive, and did things (e.g. called, sent docs, etc.) when he said he would. He’s spoiled me for other agents, and I wouldn’t think about using anyone else if I were to look again in SF or the Peninsula. Anyone would be lucky to have Michael on their team.
It was a pleasure to have have worked with Michael B Soon, on the sale of my property. He is a skilled professional, who has plenty of local expertise and knowledge of bay area markets. He assisted me in a smooth sale, and countered, and handled all issues with quick, and detailed responsiveness. I would recommend him once more. Thanks Michael! Good work.
Mike Soon recently helped us purchased a home in this competitive Bay Area market. Mike helped us prepare for the lows and highs of home purchasing, and we were 100% satisfied with his service. Mike was very personal and professional with our family’s needs. Mike showed great knowledge and skill in this market, and we appreciated his personal touch, attention to detail, and responsiveness. I highly recommend Mike Soon.
Michael Soon is the most hands on agent I’ve worked with. He not only acted as my agent, but also as an advisor, Project Manager and handy man. He literally took care of all of my needs and made the home selling process much easier. Due to his expertise, we sold my place at a record high for that development. He has a solid network of vendors he works with (painters, cleaning service, etc) so getting the right referral is simple.
I highly recommend Michael as he exceeded my expectations. He went above and beyond time and time again and he is trustworthy, knowledgable and proactive.
I used Michael as my selling agent and was extremely pleased with the results he was able to deliver. More importantly I always felt he had my best interest in mind which I’m sure you know is not always the case in this industry. He is sharp, extremely friendly, ethical and was on top of everything every step of tne way. He did a great job and I will defintely go back to him for future transactions.
Mike Soon helped us find and land our first home. After getting blown out of the water by all-cash offers and going up against 20+ bids every time, Mike was relentless–even at the point when we felt like all hope was lost. With his extensive expertise, network of contacts and personal touches, he was able to make our dream come true in a highly competitive market. He truly is the “House Whisperer.”
Having Michael as our realtor was truly a blessing. He was a delight to work with. He truly is a realtor who gives sound advice and knows the real estate business like the back of his hand. He was able to help us purchase our home quickly and was ready and willing to help and explain the entire process to us from the very beginning to the end.
I whole heartedly would recommend him to anyone who is in search of a realtor.
Michael help our family buy our first home. We are so grateful for his help to achieve our goal of becoming first time homeowners. He was wonderful to work with and really guided us through each step of the purchase. I would highly recommend Mike to anyone who is looking to buy or sell any real estate in the bay area!
Highly recommended. Project managed to get my home up to current market condition (working with contractors and inspectors) with minimal inputs. Sold my home for the asking price. Saved me a lot of time.
Great service provided by Michael. He takes care of everything for us from start to finish. Property was sold above asking price and we were very satisfied. Highly recommended.
Michael helped me sell my duplex in SF. He is a true local voice that speaks the SF real estate language like few agents can. Michael was prompt to response to every question I had about he process. He was diligent to prepare and recommend the best steps to prepare a successful listing. Michael is an experienced agent that will fight on your behalf ferociously while still maintaining a very approachable stance.
Michael is very professional and responsive. He has helped tremendously in getting a good tenant and eventually a good buyer of the unit. He acted as both my property manager (initially) and leasing/sales broker. He attended to all condo concerns/repairs with high priority.
Mike did a great job advising me on how to prepare my property for sale and executing the entire sales process. He is really tuned into the market, provides sound sales strategy advice, went above and beyond the call of duty in helping me manage contractors and facilitating the closing process. He proved to be a trustworthy business partner and delightful to work with – I look forward to doing business with him again next time I’m in a buying or selling position.
