Michael prides himself on his strategy to selling your home.

However, it’s his ability is to successfully sell properties, and not his hot spot reviews, that has endeared him to many.

I first met Michael as a potential buyer for one of the properties he was selling. He was knowledgeable and gave good insight to help close the deal. I then engaged him to sell my property. I found he had extensive knowledge of the area and went the extra mile to ensure that the sale would be closed with an interested buyer. Happy to engage him again if I'm selling and would highly recommend him as the agent to look to for Southbank.

I cannot recommend Michael enough to anyone looking to sell their property. Personal experience has found me dealing with a lot of agents in the past, and to say they have been less than perfect would be an understatement. Michael truly is a cut above the rest, and his professionalism, communication through every step of the way, commitment and persistence puts him in a class of his own. Am truly grateful for Michael going the extra 10 miles to sell my property, which other agents failed to do. Highly recommended if you want to sell your property right the first time! Thank you very much Michael!

Michael managed to sell my unit in an under-performing building at the price I wanted with no marketing budget and a short time frame to work his magic. The sale was quick, easy and Michael kept me up to date at every step of the process and negotiations. His knowledge of the area is outstanding and I can't imagine another agent performing and delivering the way Michael has.
We recently bought an apartment that Michael was selling and found the whole experience very satisfactory. He was a pleasure to deal with, answered any of our questions and went the extra mile to help us with our purchase. He was very quick to respond to our phone calls and emails, even when he had leave from work. We found him to be very honest and engaging and would highly recommend him to everyone needing to buy or sell a home.

As we started the journey, Michael took the time out to explain the process and the journey, and how he would take us through it. We've sold property before, so we knew the basics of the process. What we did like about Michael was that from the very start, he took us through recent relevant sales in the area, and gave us a realistic price range to expect. He made sure it was open every week, and adjusted his schedule to also pick up other buyers seeing similar properties. He gave us feedback from potential buyers weekly, and allowed us to make our own decisions on what a realistic selling price was going to be. After a couple of months, we got an offer that was pretty much spot on with the initial guidance, and we knew it was the right offer at the right time. What we loved was that Michael didn't just tell us what we wanted to hear, and didn't push us into a decision that we were not comfortable with. We would certainly recommend him to any seller.

Michael and his colleagues at Ray White Southbank did an outstanding job selling my 2 bedroom apartment in a challenging market. The transaction was challenging as inspections needed to be constantly coordinated with incumbent AirBNB guests. The team managed this issue seamlessly and the end result was a sale at my asking price. I would highly recommend Michael to anyone buying or selling in the Southbank submarket. Thanks again.

After meeting with a number of agents regarding the sale of our South Bank apartment I decided to go with Michael Pastrikos from Ray White. As a builder/ developer I have used many agents over the past 20 years.Michaels performance was excellent in all relevant aspects, he was informative, honest and a great communicater. I would have no hesitation in recommending or using Michael again as either purchaser or vendor.

Raj Thurman - Melbourne, Victoria
Michael is very friendly, polite and professional. I've been trying to sell my property for over 1.5 years with 2 different agents. However Michael never gives up and with his sound knowledge and good communication skill he managed to find a buyer for my property. He's also very helpful when i requested help with the sale of my home contents and manage to resolve the problems. He's no doubt a very highly recommended agent in Australia and i'm truly happy with the service.

I just wanted to let management at Ray White know how pleased I was with the recent sale of my apartment in Southbank. Michael Pastrikos from the Southbank, VIC office was a pleasure to deal with. I am in London yet it made little difference as Michael was always available to answer any questions. He gave constant updates and kept me in the loop at every stage. Many thanks as well to his assistant Jen Lin Lau for all her help. I would happily recommend his services going forward. Thanks Neil Allen

Genuine ,good listener, not pushy, accommodating some of positive qualities of Michael as a real estate agent. Having never lived in Melbourne, coming to buy property from interstate, was lucky to find Michael as an estate agent who could help in finding us the right property for our daughter. Courteous, respectful and friendly some of the other good qualities ,of Michael Pastrikos, a rare find in estate agents.

Dear Michael, Thank you very much for your kind assistance in my recent purchase of my apartment. As you know I am very happy and also with the smooth process. I found you to be very personable, and attentive; you provided a myriad of options for me to investigate, and were very patient . You always returned calls, giving excellent follow-up. Getting to know the buyer and their needs is paramount and you did a stellar job of this. I am thrilled to be the proud owner of an apartment perched on top of a complex that has a view to die for! Through your due diligence, your thorough market research and analysis, you enabled me to find the "perfect property" and the ideal investment property to suit my long term needs. I am especially happy to have found a property within my budget to boot. I found your knowledge of the Melbourne market place, of contracts, legislation, pros/cons, to be very impressive! A BIG THANK YOU Michael and well done. You took a lot of pressure off my purchase through your expertise and professionalism. I am very happy with the after sales support which has been ongoing. Kindest Regards, Heather K
