My picture pretty much explains who I am. I love what I do for my clients, and I love the beautiful Pacific Northwest. We are truly blessed to be living in an area where we can be in a world class metropolitan city, and then be buckled in ready to play in the Cascade Mountains in less than an hour.
As a broker with John L. Scott, my goal is to build great relationships. Good relationships do not come without trust and working tirelessly for my clients. I view my success based on the relationships I make with my clients. The biggest compliment I receive, is when a person refers me to someone they respect.
My relationships with my clients have no closing date.
From My Clients

"I cannot recommend Michael enough to anyone looking to buy or sell a house or condo. With his help, we managed go from offer to close on our new condo purchase in just 22 days! That included getting underwritten from scratch, inspection and appraisals done and also working with a seller living overseas. Throughout this process, Michael was always available for questions and always responded within a couple hours at most and quite often within just minutes of an email or text. He was always available to meet with us when we wanted and even trekked over to Seattle repeatedly to show us the unit “just one more time...”. He did all of this enthusiastically and never made us feel bad for asking too many questions or meeting us during the middle of Easter Sunday. If you select Michael as your agent, you will not regret it. He brings a wealth of resources from John L. Scott with him but what sets him apart is his attention to detail, his dedication to his clients, his proactive nature and treating you more like a friend than a client. He made the process even enjoyable at times which I never thought I’d say about the closing process! Michael is definitely the agent I’m calling when I’m ready to buy another property or sell one. He has our sincere thanks and full support as an agent we trust and recommend to others without hesitation. You can’t go wrong with Michael!"
"Michael Etezadi is a pleasant real estate agent to work with. He never leaves any questions unanswered and immediately addresses his clients needs. Michael deserves the highest praise, I have and will continue to refer him to my family and friends. Super responsive, always straight with his clients, and attention to details. Michael is easy to work with. Treats everyone with up most patience. He is honest and through with necessary documentation."

"Working with Michael has been an amazing experience and we couldn't have asked for anything better in how he represented us in buying our home. From the time we looked at the home to closing day, he was by our side ensuring everything would go smoothly. He is extremely knowledgeable, efficient, friendly, a great listener and genuinely cares about our wants and needs. Anytime day or night, he is always available and very quick to respond to any questions we may have. Michael is honest, someone you can completely trust and we felt he always looked out for our best interest. Can't thank you enough for all your guidance, support, hard work and most of all patience through it all. So glad to have you now as a friend. Thanks so much for helping us in getting our perfect home, we love it!! Look forward to working with you in selling our old home and have complete confidence that you will do an exceptional job. Definitely HIGHLY recommend Michael for anyone. :)"
"I used Michael to sell a very difficult house - probably one of the most challenging of his career to date. It was a great house, but the layout was more suited to smart, childless couples than mainstream nuclear families. He did an amazing job - despite the market grinding to a halt in Q4, obnoxious buyers with completely unreasonable repair demands ("please replace all the straps hanging your water pipes in the crawlspace because we don't like the building code standards from when the house was built?!"), several flaky buyers agents, and a lot of work coordination with unreliable subcontractors, cleaners, stagers, etc, Michael stood through it all and put a lot of extra blood (literally...), sweat, and tears into the project. We finally found the right buyers with a good buyer's agent after he ran numerous open houses, produced amazing marketing materials, and really worked hard for his portion of the sales commission."
"Michael exceeded all my expectations! I would HIGHLY recommend him. I had been looking for a home for a long time with very little direction and a lot of hesitation on what I really wanted. Michael was extremely patient, attentive to helping me hone in on my needs and overall made the otherwise daunting process fun and enjoyable. When I finally found "the one" he immediately made a 4 hour drive from his previously communicated plans to ensure we did not miss the opportunity. I got the house under listing and it appraised over what I paid in an otherwise hot market. The sellers agent was not easy to work with and not in the country at the time so Michael went above and beyond to negotiate and communicate with an otherwise difficult agent. I could not be happier with the home and although I am happy to now be in my dream home I will miss working with Micheal. His expertise, patience, non-pressure style and overall calm demeanor made this the best experience."

"Excellent realtor! Recommend without hesitation. Fully dedicated to us throughout the entire process, directed with all activity, calming demeanor, professional and knowledgeable, high level of integrity, relationship builder who really wanted to know us and fully understand our needs and desires, immediate response and follow up to all our calls/inquiries. Sold 2 homes for us above our asking prices with strong, clean offers. The first house sold in 1 day and the 2nd within 2 weekends. Combined thorough knowledge of our market with complete understanding of our needs and prioritized for maximum results. We have bought and sold many homes in our past. M. Etezadi is the best realtor we have ever selected."
"Michael exceeded my expectations while helping me sell my house. He has an extensive knowledge of the local housing market and did an excellent job marketing my home for the greatest return. He is an effective communicator with a friendly, yet professional attitude. Selling a house is a stressful process. It's extremely important to have a supportive agent whom you can trust to take care of all the details and follow through.
I never have to worry because Michael responds quickly and worked very hard to make this house sale as easy as possible for me. My house was listed Thursday, I received SEVEN great offers, and the house was sold the next Monday for $80,000.00 over the list price, with very favorable terms.
I have purchased and sold seven houses, and Michael was far and away the best and most thorough agents I've used. I have no hesitation recommending him highly."
"Michael is an amazing real estate agent. He helped me and my family through the process of selling our old home and buying our current home. He was so attentive and represented my family's interests to the fullest extent possible. He truly believes that the relationship between agent and client doesn't stop after the sale is made. I see him not as just my real estate agent, but as a family friend. It was a pleasure to have had the opportunity to meet and work with him. I highly recommend this agent"
"I am a single dad with two boys; 9 and 13. I moved to the Greater Seattle area about a year ago and recently my lease expired and I needed to find a safe, secure home to raise my boys. That's when I met Michael Etezadi. Michael took a vested interest in my need to find not just a house but a home to raise my boys. Michael sat down with me to discover what really mattered most to me and my family. In addition, my timelines to find a new home were tight and as a full time working dad very stressful. Michael was very proactive, staying in touch and reassuring me daily that he would find the perfect home. Not too long after engaging Michael and his professional services he called to tell me he had found the "perfect" home and he had! My boys and I move into our new home on June 29th and we could not be more excited. Most importantly Michael came through in a tough housing market to find the perfect home at the perfect price and on a tight timeline. Michael made me a hero in the eyes of my boys and I am forever grateful. If you need real-estate services like finding the perfect family home I highly recommend Michael Etezadi."

"Michael was amazing throughout the process of buying our first home. We started our journey pretty clueless and needed to find our new home as soon as possible. Michael was extremely helpful in navigating the process of buying a home. He really listened to what we wanted, kept us updated on all the options as they came available, and was so flexible, available, and patient in showing us the houses we were interested in. He was always available and responsive to the many questions we had, kept us up to date through every step of the buying process, and worked seamlessly with our lender and the sellers agent to make to whole process go as smoothly as possible. We are so grateful and happy with our new home and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Michael to anyone!"
"I work managing condo associations and have had the pleasure of having a condo sold by Michael. He took the time to really understand the condo and all it had to offer the potential new buyers. He asked very detailed questions and by the time we were finished, it felt like the home was for him personally. I found Michael's demeanor to be sincere and trustworthy. I would personally buy a home from him the next time I'm in the market. It was a pleasure working with you."
