Michael very patiently spent over a year working with us to find a house in Palm Springs. He did a great job showing us houses that met our criteria as well as some that he thought might work. He is very knowledgeable about the area. We highly recommend him as a great real estate agent to help you find a home. C. Gleckman

Michael has been our Realtor in two different transactions here in the desert. No one is more knowledgable about this market than he is. He always listened to our criteria and steered us away from problem properties saving us time and headaches. No realtor will work harder for you than Michael Layton. J & T Mckentay

I met Michael Layton in 2006 when I was living in NY, I found him on Remax realtors while looking for a home in Palm Springs ca. He was so informative and had many beautiful homes to show me and my partner. We flew down to Ca and Michael took us to see many homes and we found the perfect one within a month of looking. He is one of the most sincere and honest persons I know, Palm Springs and many other areas in the desert are lucky to have him in the realestate business. He went above and beyond the call of duty, anyone would be lucky to have him as their realtor. D. Curcio

I have worked with Michael on a few occasions. I have found Michael to be very knowledgable about the market in my area. He provided guidance when I was looking for an investment property. He has also helped me find a renter for the property which I acquired. I look forward to working with Michael again when the need arises. E & S Lugo

For over 30 years I have invested in real estate. Michael is more than five stars..he knows the market both for buyers and sellers. Michael listed my rental property in Palm Springs, CA. He is in the Real Estate business for the long run. He is a true professional. P. Dorshkind

It is my pleasure to highly recommend Michael Layton. My husband and I are from British Columbia, Canada and we purchased a home in Palm Springs with Michael's assistance in 2009. We flew down for three days and Michael took us to numerous homes throughout the Coachella Valley until we found the right home for us. Michael has a fantastic knowledge of the local area, he is friendly, patient, entertaining and a savvy negotiator. We would work with Michael again if we were to purchase another property. And we have referred him to other friends who have also been satisfied purchasing through Michael Layton. Tom and Julia T.

I can't recommend Michael enough and we were so lucky to have found him. He gave us so much important and knowledgeable advice with short-sales, renting, and he eventually sold our house. It felt as if we were his only clients because he has such a wonderful ability to call or email back. I had many freak-outs and he has an amazing ability to calm people down and his reassurance really helps keep the worry and headaches down. It was so smooth and even though it took quite a long time - with buyers falling out - he was with us every step of the way. He never gave up...even when I had issues with taxes a year later, he was there to help out. S & J Hughes
