"We were pleased by the traffic through our house, and it sold within a reasonable time frame."
Michael presents himself very professionally, and the promotional materials on our house were well prepared. He and his staff are good about responding promptly to questions and requests. We were pleased by the traffic through our house, and it sold within a reasonable time frame.

"Responsive, responsible, intelligent, personable, graceful under pressure — Michael Slate was all that and more."
Not all mid-century homes are created (or renovated) equal, and Michael immediately identified what made our Alexander special -- and then capitalized on it to find a knowledgeable buyer who made us an offer a few days before our home even hit the market. I can't imagine anyone who could have made the process smoother, or gotten us better results. Responsive, responsible, intelligent, personable, graceful under pressure -- Michael Slate was all that and more. Thanks again, Michael!

"He was always pleasant to work with, professional, perseverant, optimistic, and calm."
I decided to list my house with Michael because of his energy, his enthusiasm for the space, and the understanding he demonstrated of my motivations as well as the house's unique opportunities (and challenges). He was always pleasant to work with, professional, perseverant, optimistic, and calm. Glad to add my name to his ever growing list of satisfied client

"We would highly recommend working with Michael and Neil on any of your real estate needs."
My wife and I had the pleasure of recently purchasing a mid century home in Palm Springs with Neil Husvar and Micheal Slate of the Paul Kaplan Group. As foreign buyers they were fantastic in taking the time to make sure we were informed, understood the process and even acted as our eyes and ears on the ground when we were unable to be in Palm Springs. We can confidently say that the only reason we actually went ahead with the purchase is due to the efforts of both Neil and Michael. In addition to being great agents, they are fantastic guys and we are privileged to have built a friendship with both of them during the process. We would highly recommend working with Michael and Neil on any of your real estate needs. Outstanding work gentlemen!

"In our mind and from our experience, the only realtor worth working with is Michael Slate."
This 5 star review on Michael Slate is well deserved and long over due!My husband and I ran into Michael when he was relatively new to the real estate world and also moon lighting as a server at Tropical. We exchanged small talk as he asked if we were locals or visitors. We were visitors at the time and explained that we hoped to move here in 4 - 5 years. Michael gave us his card and said if we ever needed a realtor to keep him mind. The 4 - 5 years was ramped up and happened in about 3 years. During that 3 year period, we would frequently come down to Palm Springs for an extended weekend or a longer vacation. Each time that we came down we would be in touch with Michael in advance of coming down. He would take us to various open houses on the market at the time all over the valley so that it would help us narrow down where we wanted to land for our retirement home. Though we have always been the type that we will do much of our research on line in advance of working with a realtor, we still needed Michaels input and wisdom which is stellar for the Coachella Valley.We used Michael's services for both our retirement home and to relocate my mom from the Northwest. Though we were able to actually locate both homes on our own, we still used Michael and his team for the entire process. Michael is extremely knowledgeable of the market in the area. He is very upbeat with energy and passion for his work that shows with every form of interaction during the process. For both transactions, Michael was there for every step of the way, going out of the way to take pictures and videos of our new home that was being built and then sending them to us as we were putting closure to our full time jobs in the Bay Area.We can't say enough good things about Michael and the work that he did for us and for the transaction of my mom's house. Buying a home is not a fun process and can be a challenge when not immediately in the area. Michael was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. We would not hesitate to recommend Michael Slate to anyone in the future. Should we have to move again (please NO) we would use Michael in a heartbeat. The Coachella Valley has a lot of realtors in the area, many of whom are very good. In our mind and from our experience, the only realtor worth working with is Michael Slate.Thank you Michael for everything that you did for us during the past 3 years. We are beyond thrilled with our home as is my mom and appreciate all your efforts. We are also please to add you to our growing list of new friends in the area. Keep up the excellent work that you do for existing and new residents of the Coachella Valley.
"I look forward to working with them again soon for a second purchase!"
Michael Slate was awesome! He always brought good energy when showing me homes and his lively spirit stayed positive and driven. He definitely made my first home buying experience a great memory! I look forward to working with them again soon for a second purchase!

"Strongly recommend asking for Michael. He’s kind, funny, knows his stuff (and handsome too!)."
We worked with Michael Slate (adore), who helped find our home up on Joshua Tree. It's a tough market up in the high desert as homes go quick! Michael was patient, took a lot of time driving from Palm Springs to JT to walkthrough homes, and in the end, we found the perfect pad to make an Airbnb rental property.Strongly recommend asking for Michael. He's kind, funny, knows his stuff (and handsome too!).

"Michael put in so much time and effort to get our house sold"
We worked with Michael Slate, and had an amazing experience. On top of being a great guy, Michael put in so much time and effort to get our house sold. Even after we fell out of escrow because of buyers with cold feet, Michael did not slow down his marketing, or give up... he tried even harder to find us the perfect buyer!P.S Neil Huvsar with Team Michael Slate is also the best. Along with Michael, Neil worked countless hours to sell our house, and made us laugh every step of the way. I am going to miss talking with Michael and Neil every day.

"I never dreamed this new life here would be possible but Paul and Michael made a dream come true!!!"
For many years I have visited Palm Springs and dreamed of possibly living here. I was born and raised in CA and moved to Colorado in 1993. As the years went by I would visit and feel a pull to the desert. I could never seem to find the right time or the right home to make the move. One day I stumbled upon a post on Facebook about Palm Canyon Mobile Club and the new homes coming in to the park. Paul Kaplan and his team had a project on their hands and seemed to be pouring their hearts in to finding the right people to fill this charming community. The park is literally in the best part of Palm Springs. I fell in love with the new manufactured homes there and decided to make the leap! I came out and met with Michael Slate and the rest is history! Michael was the most attentive and always there to answer any question I had! He sent me plenty of pictures and videos during the building process of my home and he was such a positive energy to deal with! I never dreamed this new life here would be possible but Paul and Michael made a dream come true!!!

"I would recommend Michael for any sale or purchase of a home"
Michael and his team did a wonderful job with the sale of our home. They are professional, caring, and positive. Our home was difficult, but Michael and his team pulled through and made the sale happen. I would recommend Michael for any sale or purchase of a home. Thank you for all your hard work!
