Mike Dolan handled the sale of our small piece of commercial property in Big Bear. He was extremely helpful in guiding us through the process, and made it a point to be available to answer our questions, even while he was on vacation. He has extensive knowledge of the Big Bear real estate market  and the ability to effectively handle complex real estate transactions. We will be looking to him to assist us in the future.Less
