Simon Mills of Mills Realty did an absolutely outstanding job for us in selling my deceased elderly parent’s home in Manhattan Beach. Through his negotiations we ended up getting top dollar for this home at $1,780,000. He saved us at least $40,000 in commission, not to mention the extra $68,000 we gained in negotiations on the final sales price. Along the way, over several months, there were many tremendous obstacles having to do with an attorney buyer who appeared to be well qualified on paper, but played games, stalled and revealed himself as a person without integrity, honesty or ethics who delayed the sale. During this time Simon Mills handled all of the communications and negotiations with this first buyer in a firm, honest and professional manner. Simon went the extra mile by consulting with the Association of Realtors in obtaining legal advice on this unusual issue. Although Simon and I tried to deal with the first buyer in an honest and straightforward manner it finally became clear that the first buyer proved over and over that he was not to be believed or trusted. Once we reached the same conclusion about the first buyer, Simon Mills found another buyer who quickly consummated the sale and escrow smoothly within days. I think that it is good to know that Simon can not only handle the “easy sales”, but the difficult ones as well. Now, I have re-hired Simon to help me purchase a property for my son who has some disabilities and I am confident that Simon can accomplish my goals in finding the right property at the right price for my son.
