“We have worked with Michael and his team for close to 10 years and have known Michael for more than 15 years. From sourcing quality investment properties to screening tenants and managing rentals, they have us covered and we never worry. Michael has tremendous experience working with investors and truly has a different approach than a typical realtor. He and his team understand what the investors are looking for, provide great value add, and have all the tools and resources for full service. They are very well-connected to find properties that have solid cash flow and room for equity growth.“

“I’d like to thank Seeto Realty for the years of investment advice and exceptional service they have provided. I’ve purchased and sold over a dozen properties with Seeto Realty and also have them manage my investment properties. It is rare to find a team so knowledgeable on the local market and finding those rare investment opportunities to build my portfolio. As markets change I am confident in their ability to pivot and look for future pockets of investment grade assets. Thanks again to Seeto Realty.”
“As a San Francisco Bay Area investor for over a decade, I had always been skeptical about out-of-state real estate investment. My last two-year experience working with Michael and David Seeto has completely changed my attitude toward out-of-state investment. Through their extensive network and their guidance, I was able to access amazing real estate off-market deals that fit perfectly my investment objectives, enabling me to build a high cash-flow real estate portfolio in a short period of time. They work hard to uncover hidden gems in a competitive market and to control cost in acquisition and rehab through their connections to other real estate agents and contractors. I have my utmost trust in their ability to get the best deals and delivering the best cash flow performance.”

“The Seetos are Texas’ best kept secret. As real estate investors having them on our side is like having a Swiss Army knife in your tool kit – invaluable and always looking out in our best interest.
When we decided to invest out of state in Houston we reached out to theSeetos for the best plan of action as we weren’t familiar with the landscape. We initially planned to BRRR sight unseen, but David spent time touring the property with contractors, FaceTimed with us and provided us a more financially sound strategy which in hindsight was the correct decision?”
