A full-time agent, Mike has worked at the onsite office at the Oasis Country Club in Palm Desert for the last three years.

“We had many questions and a few problems but Mike always had answers and solutions. He always gave us time and space to reflect on issues when necessary. Because of the confidence that Mike had established with us, we relied heavily on Mike’s advice on many issues. We were never disappointed. Tarbell Realtors should be very proud of Mike Kays. He is a great asset…and the reason that I will refer all my colleagues and friends to Tarbell for any future real estate needs. ” -John V. Branch, Palm Desert CA
“Mike Kays is an exceptional realtor. From the beginning to the end of the sale of my condo, Mike made the transaction effortless on my part. My sale property was in California and I live in Michigan so it was important that I trusted my realtor and I sure did trust Mike. Mike is very competent, helpful, knowledgeable and available. He always answered his phone or called right back. I never had to wait.” -Joann Blake, Macomb MI
In his spare time Mike enjoys reading, nature walks, and camping. If he is not helping people find their dream home, you might see him at his favorite pastime, sailing on San Diego Bay.
