My Value Proposition

You might find that I'm different from 99% of the other agents. Aside from outselling them, I am a true seller specialist with a wide range of experience. There are always challenges when selling a home, and I know how to manage all of them.

Find an agent who only represents sellers, doesn't engage in dual representation, and only uses proven strategies and markets to a local, national, and international audience. This means more buyers and a better price.

You've likely found me by referral, which is a high compliment. Feel free to read what others have said about me. If you are reading this, you likely want a smooth sale, netting the most money in the shortest amount of time. That is what I'm known for.

Call me at 626-796-4100 for a no-pressure 5-minute consultation. Even if you don't hire me, I will definitely help you with your real estate goals.

What Others Are Saying

"Mike was referred to me to sell my home in Monrovia and I interviewed him along with other agents. I was quickly impressed with Mike's strategies and methods and getting me a fantastic price. He was able to sell my home in 1 week with a 30 day escrow and a very smooth close. I highly recommend Mike. I have already told my good friend to interview Mike." Rick Martinez, Psy.D. | Monrovia
"Michael, THANK YOU sooooo much, you've done a great job! You are truly a professional person with a lot of patience, and a listening ear. I know at times you probably thought we were crazy. We kept putting in our prayer request to sell and to bless you, your families, and your firm. Again, thank you and God bless." Annie & Rosie Tellez, Trustees | Pasadena Units
"Michael Bell did an exceptional job in selling our home. Michael did everything he said he would and more. Handled every situation with professionalism. Michael eased our anxiety with his wealth of knowledge." Sandi Warren, Trustee​ | Pasadena
“Mike helped me with two very different and difficult properties. His expertise in preparation resulted in fast sales without any complications. I recommend him to everyone I know that is preparing to sell." Mary Martin | Altadena
"My mother and myself were very happy with your service and highly recommend you during conversations. Please feel free to use my name or contact info as I was very satisfied with your knowledge and performance. I wish you and your family all the best." Officer Dale Falicon, Trustee​ | Pasadena
"I asked my family for a broker referral. I needed someone I could trust explicitly, who was very experienced, highly ethical, and with excellent communication. I was told to call Mike Bell. I decided to interview a few others in the neighborhood, but when I met Mike it was obvious he was perfect for our family home. Thank you Mike!" Sharon Strickland | Glendale
"We know a lot of Realtors. But Mike was an easy choice. He knows the market, and worked very hard on getting us $60,000 over the appraised value, and negotiating great terms, which allowed our family to easily transition to our new home. He prepared us and our home, so well, that we were able to have a 5 day escrow. We are very happy." Albert and Heather Smith | San Gabriel
"I give Mike five stars for handling all the details and finally closing the sale of my family's home in Pasadena. Throughout the transaction he was very responsive, professional in dealing with us and the various third-parties involved in various aspects, he was always straight-forward and quick with his answers to us, tenacious when chasing down buyers and negotiating on our behalf." John Oler
"I want to add my thanks and huge appreciation for your handling of the complicated marketing of my condo. I know you went way out, on the bow-sprit on all of this, and I am so relieved that the boat is about to dock. I will gladly refer you to anyone seeking a seasoned broker that has sailed on rough seas. Of course, fly this on your mast!" Fr. Clarke Oler | Pasadena
"You were the last agent we interviewed to sell our home. You knew the improvements that would yield the best return, and in hindsight you were spot-on. Your persistence, knowledge, and specific strategy worked great. We got the best price and terms, for sure. Thanks Mike!" Suzette Graeber, Trustee
"Thank you so much for the fantastic job negotiating the sale of our house. It was so wonderful that while we were away on our cruise we were able to enjoy ourselves knowing the sale of our house was in good hands. The way you were able to maximize our profit is truly incredible. We are very grateful that you represented us again." Bob and Melissa Melendes | Bungalow Heaven, Pasadena (2 transactions)
"Thank You Mike!!!!! It is rare to do business with someone as energetic and devoted to doing a great job as you are. As we were from out-of-town, and didn't know where to get the help we needed, you went out of your way to help us and stopped by to check on us & see if we needed anything. You sold my folks' house quickly and took care of all the details. My only regret is that you can't sell our home in Iowa for us." Jan & Dean Wiebold, Trustees | Pasadena
"Mike Bell was an exceptional real estate agent. He guided me patiently through the process of selling my home. When the buyer’s agent stalled, Mike forcibly pushed and got the job done. He and his staff performed outstandingly, and I would recommend him to anyone." Lincoln Fairchild | Monrovia
"Mike sold our home this past year. He demonstrated strong intuition and negotiation skills. He was honest and responsive, from the moment he drafted our listing, to when we passed him our keys. His results exceeded my expectations, and I would use him again, without hesitation." Phillip Marr, Esq.
"Mike, nice work by you and your team, it was a nice, smooth and quick transaction." Colin T. Greene, Esq.
"Mike, you provided a very thorough and comprehensive sale. You pushed all the right buttons, and ensured all the right events occurred on time. I am very pleased with your work, especially seeing to it that we got overbids (in probate court) and closed on time. I am looking forward to other transactions with you and your team. Keep up the good work." Craig Lucas, Esq. | Pasadena
"I thought I had already found the right Realtor to sell my house. But you were referred to me by a prominent attorney. After our first meeting, my family and I knew that you were the one we wanted to work with. You promised a lot, and certainly delivered on each of them. I especially appreciated your mastery of contract negotiations and your dedication to your clients. I highly recommend your services." Senait Yilma | Pasadena
"Dear Mike, Thank you so much for all of the hard work you did for my Mom. She is SO happy. Please thank your team from me, too. I know the process wasn't easy for you, and I truly appreciate the hard work everyone did for my Mom. Again, she is so happy with you and your team. I will highly recommend you to anyone I know that may be thinking of selling." Patrick Driscoll | Pasadena, lives in Phoenix, Arizona
"I am already referring you to my family and friends. They deserve your level of service and results. I appreciate how aggressive you were on the important issues, and never putting me in a position where I could lose money. You really explained every part of the process, allowed me to be very comfortable, and got my home at a fantastic price." Soussi Jegelian | Pasadena
"Thanks, more than we can say, for your limitless efforts to bring these sales to a close. Thank you for your yeoman services. You did what the first Realtor couldn't do. As I have told you, you're one in a million. You're the Greatest!" Richard Ergo, Esq. (Ret)

"Mike Bell is a consummate professional! We were out-of-state sellers, and Mike handled every aspect of our transaction impeccably.

Mike Bell is your man!" Daniel Colimon | Mission Meridian Village, South Pasadena
"Mike, you made the transaction happen. I believed in you, and you closed it in 30 days when everyone said it couldn't. You were so professional." Rosa Leung | Bungalow Heaven, Pasadena
