Michael Ricks is my realtor for life. If you`re searching for a realtor he is your the type of realtor you want. I just recently closed on a home and as a first time buyer I really did not know what to expect from a realtor or the process. Michael Ricks made everything easy, enjoyable and understandable. In fact I believe his reputation is what helped in the acceptance of my offer. People like to work with good guys and I`m thankful to Michael. I loved touring PS, getting a sense of history and layout of the cities. Knowing that buying a home can be extremely stressful, I can say I probably had the best experience possible. We had excellent communication. I always felt taken care of. I felt prepared and in the know of what was happening, I knew he was on my side and wanting the best for me. BTW... I was referred to Michael by a friend who works in San Diego... she heard great things. Now I`m a home owner.


I found Michael Ricks to be highly professional in all of his dealings. He was always on time and prepared for all of our meetings. He is very familiar with the area and knows all the properties and their histories. We found him to be very personable, he returned calls immediately and was always willing to answer questions in a thoroughly and thoughtfully.


Michael is a dedicated, thorough Agent that will get the job done correctly. He is very knowable about the Coachella Valley and the Real Estate Market as it changes. He is fully educated in normal sales, Banked Owned, and Short sales. I would recommend him to anyone I know.


I cannot say enough of Mike Ricks. He helped us to buy 2 properties. He is good with research, comps, guidance and the transaction in general. One of the properties we purchased was a 1031 exchange with another property out of state. There was complicated decisions and paper work involved and Mike made it all so easy. Ever since our transaction with him we remained friends and has showed us many investment opportunities. But I think the best of Mike is his attitude and his always cheerful personality! I will do business with him again and again.


Michael is an outstanding person and real estate professional who is extremely masterful and adept at securing a property for his clients. From our first meeting we felt he was “on our side” and totally capable of assisting us in our endeavor to purchase a second home. On our short vacation in Palm Springs he adjusted his schedule to work with us for three consecutive days and made the most of our time together. Shortly after our return to Oregon we made an offer and were able to close on it a few months later. During our waiting period Michael kept us apprised of the particulars of the transaction and even was so kind as to look in on our vacant home and assist us in the home inspection. Michael further provided the names of reputable contractors we could use for some initial remodeling. Overall Michael’s years of experience prove their value and give his clients total confidence in his efforts. We give him the highest recommendation possible.


Michael Ricks is very professional and responsive to emails, phone calls and texts. We have utilized his expertise for over ten years on multiple properties. He has gone out of his way to accommodate all parties in our transactions. He told us the truth on valuations where other brokers exaggerated numbers to try to get our listings.


I can`t imagine using anyone else for my real estate needs. Michael is the best Realtor I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I appreciate his professional attitude and knowledge of real estate. Michael represents both buyers and sellers with honesty and makes the "ordeal" of moving much less stressful. I will certainly be using this Realtor again in the future.


Michael was super helpful and spent all the time necessary to complete this transaction in record time. My wife and I are very happy.

Incredibly responsive and helpful. Best agent for the desert!


Michael Ricks is extremely professional. I was in good hands during an extended escrow. I would definitely recommend him to others.


Both agents were very efficient, with suggestions of some needed repairs to help with the sale of the property. They explained the process of the listing thru the final escrow of the property. Michael did follow up with the many offers assisting in selection of the right buyer. A quick sale with two wonderful agents to see the total event thru.

Just a note to tell you how very pleased we are with you and your staff with the very professional way each lease was handled. We have had little or no time between lessees; only the time to allow for cleaning. The most exciting item has been the quality of the tenants. In the numerous years that we have been leasing, we haven`t had one late lease payment. Your tenant recommendations have been correct every time. The lease agreements were all very well written as we have never had a problem. Thanks for all of your help.

When my husband and I first met Michael, we knew that he was different. He actually asked us questions and didn’t just offer his opinion. We liked him right away. Over the years, he has helped us find 7 tenants, all of which have been outstanding. One of our current tenants recently signed a three year extension after their first year of leasing.

This dynamic team was absolutely wonderful to deal with. I was so grateful for their wonderful ability to explain the real estate process and keep me up-to-date with what was happening and they`re careful attention to detail. The hard work, encouragement, and professional integrity which they demonstrated throughout the proceedings I knew I was in very capable hands. Thanks to these two gentlemen I`m in my dream home!
