If you Google "excellence" you will probably find Adams Real Estate Group in the first definition

I am writing this unsolicited recommendation for Adams Real Estate Group because of how impressed and pleased I am with them and their services in selling my house during a very difficult time. Michael Adams and Tim Proschold offered exemplary real estate services. They took the time to understand my needs, offered unusual flexibility, provided tasteful staging, created a high quality, impressive sales brochure, and offered excellent and

creative "outside the box" ideas. With their plethora of connections in the service industry, they handled every issue, every phase, of everything required during the listing period. 

I had less than stellar experiences with realtors in the past, who put in half-hearted efforts into selling my properties. Each time I felt, "I should have done it myself; I would have done a much better job". Not so with Adams Real Estate Group, and in fact, quite the opposite. At each and every phase, the job they did was better than what I, myself, would have done! They were tireless in holding open house showings and demonstrated a real can-do attitude when things needed to be done. At one point, when a handyman was needed in a hurry, Michael rolled up his sleeves and did the work himself (perfectly) on the spot! I cannot adequately express how impressed and pleased I am with their exemplary real estate services! Adams Real Estate Group sets the standard by which others should be compared; they really do. I cannot imagine anything they could have done any better than what they did!

If you have interviewed other Realtors and are considering Adams Real Estate Group, look no further. Feel free to contact me ( or 650-380-2997) if you have any questions. I am so pleased with them that this letter is beginning to sound like an advertisement, but I honestly do feel this way and will be happy to share anything I can with you. They not only did everything right, with flexibility and reassurance at each step, but did it in a manner that greatly exceeded my expectations and hopes, and left no room for improvement. If they were to ask me what they could have done better, I cannot think of a single thing. They made what is normally a painful experience, relaxing, reassuring, and quite pleasant. I truly hope to have the opportunity to work with them again someday. If you Google "excellence" you will probably find Adams Real Estate Group in the first definition.

I can say without hesitation that your team is by far the best...

I want to thank you for the truly outstanding work you did in selling our home in Waverly Park, Mountain View. In the last twenty years, I have moved nine times and bought and/or sold six homes. I can say without hesitation that your team is by far the best, most professional real estate partnership I have ever worked with over the years! You far surpass the competition and I would strongly recommend you to anyone. I had to relocate quickly before the house was even put on the market, and both of you made the transaction appear seamless to me. I thank you both for the outstanding work you did for us. I will definitely recommend you to anyone who I cross paths with.

Wow, I had no idea how much work it was to sell a house!   You guys sure earn your pay. 
Thank you again for doing such an awesome job!  I really appreciate the expertise and diligence you both applied to selling our house.  We couldn't be happier!
Most of all, I always knew we had the A team.  I think if we had anyone else, it would have much more stressful.    If there were going to be any problems, I knew you would always have the right answer and solution.  Thank you again!   

Thank you Lizze for the great job staging as well.   You made the house look its best.

..thrilled with how much effort you and Lizzie took in staging our house

It was truly a pleasure working with you on the purchase of our new house in Waverly Park and the sale of our old house in Cuesta Park. We had a compressed time-frame to work with in preparing our house for sale after purchasing our new home.  You took the worry out of the process and handled all the many details of both transactions with ease. We were also thrilled with how much effort you and Lizzie took in staging our house for a very successful open house.  I can't imagine how it could have gone smoother. Thanks much,

Impeccable integrity and sharp real estate acumen

It doesn't get any better than the Adams group. This summer, Michael & Tim helped us buy our current home and then sell the previous home in the Cuesta Park neighborhood. Of all the Realtors out there, we specifically sought out the Adams group because of their stellar reputation as professionals with impeccable integrity and sharp real estate acumen. Well, we did right as they exceeded our expectations, to say the least. We are so glad we entrusted this team with two demanding transactions - buying a house, followed by reasonably quick selling in a tough market. Not only did they help us clinch a really nice house that met all our requirements, but they also sold our Cuesta house within a week of listing, with multiple offers and over asking price. We whole-heartedly endorse the Adams group - our next real estate transaction will definitely be through them.

hard work and dedication to excellence

We have owned and sold several houses in the past, yet have never received the high level of service provided by Michael. He consulted with us on how to best present our house and brought in an interior designer to assist with the finishing touches. He designed the advertising layouts for the local papers and developed a professional looking brochure that highlighted our home’s key selling features accompanied by professional looking photographs. His hard work and dedication to excellence resulted in us receiving multiple offers on our house, which were above our list price.

As a result of all the positive feedback about Michael Adams...

As a result of all the positive feedback about Michael Adams, I called and hired him to help me sell my house. My experience was exactly as outstanding as all of the others here who have used him as their Realtor.  We initially met and talked early in Sept. By Sept 30th we were on the market and I closed on the sale of my home today!!  And that is no small feat in this current market. From start to finish everything was easy, well-planned, went exactly on schedule and nothing was forgotten.

Michael, Tim (his partner) and the rest of his team were true professionals. They knew exactly what to do and did it flawlessly. Besides the success and smoothness of the whole process and transaction (certainly the main goal, of course), the whole experience was extremely pleasant. Michael and his team are truly great, sincere human beings. And that is saying a lot – especially when it comes to sales people of any sort, Realtors being no exception!  If you dread the prospect of having to deal with a realtor (or even if you don't), then you will be truly happy to work with Michael Adams. While he is excellent and highly experienced as a realtor, he is the most pleasant and real person you would ever want to work with.

He is the one you want to have on your side!

super human beings and super business men!

We couldn't let another day go by without thanking you again for the fantastic job you did selling our house. As you know, making the decision to leave our house was very difficult.  For 38 and 1/2 years we lived there, raised our children, and cared for our grandchildren.  Our home held many wonderful memories and "a lot of history for us," according to our children, nieces, and nephews.  Indeed, it was painful to even think of moving away from this happy place we called home.

Once we did decide to sell, we basically turned the house to you and trusted you to handle all aspects of the sale.  And we were so glad we did!  The Sereno Group (namely, Michael, Tim, and Lizzie) performed its magic.  The house sold in six days with multiple offers all over asking price and closed the following week.  We were delighted with the smoothest transaction ever.  We could not have asked for anything more.

Michael and Tim, we were impressed with your expertise starting with our first meeting all the way to the CoE.  Words are inadequate to describe you two, but we'll try with a few:  professional, honest, sensitive to our feelings, sincere, knowledgeable, great business savvy, reliable, trustworthy, straightforward, attentive to details, kind, understanding, thoughtful, responsive, and results oriented.  We loved that you were not afraid to roll up your sleeves (literally) and help with physical labor.  That was over and above our expectations.  We also appreciated how you made our lives easy throughout the horrendous moving process.  You provided exceptional service.  We had never before experienced such luxury in our previous home sales.

We cannot thank you enough.  You two are just super (super human beings and super business men).  We wanted a highly effective sales team, and we got one.  Needless to say, we most certainly will recommend you to everyone we know.  (Actually, our neighbors have told us they were quite impressed with you and the contractors that you hired.) We wish that our paths will cross again someday.  How great it would be to have other business dealings with you.  All the best to you and your future endeavors, Michael and Tim (and, of course, to Lizzie too)

You clearly are a cut above the rest!

I want to thank you for the superb job you have done.  I believe I can speak for all of us in saying that we are very impressed with all that you have done and you clearly are a cut above the rest.   If you ever have customers that want a reference I would be happy to provide one. Once again, thank you for your superb work and support.

Nobody could have done a better job

We are very happy that we selected you as our listing agent. What made you special is the way you took care of things like the inspections and the prior listing agent contract. You made sure I was comfortable with every step along the way. The wide angle photos, the virtual tour and all the other marketing material were top class. You often like to use the word "Fantastic" and that's how we feel about you as our agent. We'll strongly recommend you to anyone who asks. Nobody could have done a better job. Congratulations to you and your team for a job perfectly done.

We'll be recommending you without hesitation to others

We both wanted to say a very heartfelt thank you for your representation during our sell. You provided many, many fantastic tips & great advice when we were getting the house ready for market. When we were ready, your marketing of the property was first rate, and when it was time to hear offers, we both felt confident and secure having you "in our corner".  We'd also like to thank Lizzie for the Staging. She really made the house look its best. We'll be recommending you without hesitation to others who might be in need of a top notch & details orientated Realtor.

...we walked around the house in amazement!

We’d like to say a huge thank you to you both. We bought our new home and sold our old using with your team.

We were impressed by Michael’s knowledge of the Cuesta Park neighborhood the first time we met Michael at one of his open homes on Nilda Avenue. We kept his card and decided to call him to ask for advice on our remodeling ideas, and to find out just what was involved in preparing our house for the market. His willingness to meet with us this first time confirmed to us that he really understood the Cuesta Park area and was a person we could trust. The hours Michael and Tim spent working with us over the following months through selling our home on Begen Avenue and then buying again on Bonita Avenue showed us how committed they were and that our best interests were their top priority. We felt you were with us 100% of the way. We truly valued Michael and Tim’s knowledge and experience to answer our questions, view properties with us, advise us on the finishing touches for preparing to sell it, give us names of contractors, mortgage advisors and generally guide us through the ups and downs of the buying and selling process. The day our home was staged by Lizzie and her wonderful team at Dragonfly Designs we walked around the house in amazement. It looked fantastic. Now we agree with your suggestion about the difference staging makes on presenting the house to buyers. It was worth our family moving out first and made the open homes stress free for us. When we went on vacation right in the middle of selling our old home and buying the new, Tim organized the fumigation team and co-coordinated various other aspects of preparing both properties. We appreciated his commitment to us and believe he really went above and beyond the call of duty. We will certainly highly recommend you to our friends and neighbors, and have no hesitation in calling on the Adam’s Real Estate team again.

Professional, Flexible, Trustworthy

In case anyone out there is looking for a great real estate team to sell their Mountain View/Cuesta Park home, I'd like to mention The Adams Group (you may have seen their ad on the Miramonte Safeway shopping carts).  We recently worked with Michael Adams and his team to sell our home. Prior to deciding to go with them they gave us a detailed plan of action to sell the house and once we decided to go with them, they were very professional, flexible, trustworthy, and seemed to care about how we were coping during the process.”

As an attorney, I have a fine appreciation for someone who truly grasps the larger picture

In my estimation, Michael has to be one of the best real estate agents in the Bay Area. The attention to detail and level of service provided by Michael far exceeded any of my expectations. At every point in the buying experience, Michael demonstrated superb judgment, attention to detail and comprehensive analysis…. As an attorney, I have a fine appreciation for someone who truly grasps the larger picture, but also firmly identifies all issue areas and ties down details. Michael truly represents his client’s interests with a vigorous professionalism that leaves no stone unturned. Michael is a man of integrity, and I found myself comfortable relying on his advice and counsel.
