About Michael

Your Sacramento Area Real Estate Expert

Meet Michael Austin of Ellington Properties

Michael was born in Carmichael, graduated from high school in Granite Bay, visited his grandparents often in Fair Oaks and his family in Lincoln, and bought his first home in Roseville.

While obtaining a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics with a minor in Business Administration from California State University, Sacramento, he lived in various Sacramento neighborhoods in and around the college. Needless to say, in Michael’s lifetime he’s come to know almost every corner of the Sacramento and Placer County area.

Family has always been important to Michael. His father has worked for the same local business for over 30 years, and his mother has been a teacher and a school administrator in the public schools for over 35 years. His younger brother, Matthew, graduated from Chico State.

Dedication and commitment have been lifelong values that have been instilled in Michael from past generations. An accomplishment of Michael’s was obtaining the status of Eagle Scout. “For me that was something that didn’t come easily. But it meant I had to be trustworthy, helpful, loyal, friendly, courteous, kind and obedient to earn that special distinction, and I’m proud of it.”

Handling each real estate transaction personally to make sure his client is 100% satisfied is just a natural tendency that comes easily to Michael. He takes care of each person as if they were his family. And he works long and tireless hours to make sure that each and every client knows they are special to him.

Client Testimonials

We had a great experience working with Michael on buying our first home. We wanted to be sure with our purchase and his patience was great in that instance. He went above and beyond in providing his experience and advice to get us the home of our dream.

About a year ago, we received a call from Michael asking if we were interested in selling a rental property that we owned. That was the beginning of a very wonderful and blessed relationship. Our life seemed crazy at the time, and while we were trying to make our decisions, this wonderful young man was in the background, sending pleasant messages and/or kind notes our way. When it came time for us to sell, he hit the ground running, continuing this journey with nothing less than a 100% positive attitude and complete dedication.

Michael was very involved in all aspects of the sale of our home. He was quick to respond to all questions and issues that arose as well as was quick to resolve buyer negotiation. The process was very smooth and easy, would definitely work with Michael again
