Michael Dilsaver Realtor

As one of the Founding Partners for Partners Trust in Pasadena, Michael Dilsaver is a top producer in the area who has won the loyalty and respect of the local real estate community through his commitment and desire to always do the right thing. Throughout his 39-year career, which includes owning his own real estate firm, Michael Joseph & Associates, Michael has always strived to service his clients with the highest degree of integrity, responsibility, and individual attention. Aside from exercising superior negotiating skills, Michael is distinguishable by way of his expertise in architectural properties. 

“I’m a firm believer that your best real estate agent is both business savvy and intuitive. With a background of business and architecture, I represent an ideal duality between right brain and left brain thinking.”

In order to not only meet but exceed the expectations of his clients, Michael has put in place proven systems that his exceptional team is able to support and implement. From signing a listing agreement, applying creative marketing and exposure, and finally to closing the sale, every stage in the process is able to progress seamlessly, adding to Michael’s success in the field.  

A SoCal native, Michael’s eye for beauty and love of art and architecture has only grown throughout the years, giving him a special advantage in preparing homes for sale. He has personally sold 29 of his own properties, including a Mediterranean-style Paul Williams home resting on four acres in Pasadena. Needless to say, Michael’s architectural pursuits have been featured by both local and national media, further igniting his passion for making things beautiful and honoring the artists whom he admires.  

While studying architecture at USC, Michael started to show an interest in residential housing, prompting him to switch his major to business, earn a real estate license at the age of 21, and graduate Summa Cum Laude from California State University Los Angeles. To further his studies, Michael attained the G.R.I. (Graduate of Realtors Institute) designation and earned the C.R.S. (Certified Residential Specialist) credential, a distinction held by fewer than 4% of all REALTORS® nationwide. He is also a member of the Luxury Homes Marketing Institute and has earned the prestigious CLHMS (Certified Luxury Homes Marketing Specialist) designation. 

A true Renaissance man, Michael is also the part-owner of a vineyard and winery where he enjoys entertaining friends while soaking up the incredible views.
