Michael Kotyuk’s professional experience in marketing and personal experience in property investment give him a great deal of expertise in how to best serve his real estate clients. An avid student of architecture throughout the world, he has visited and learned from the designs of buildings in over 23 different countries. Working with his own properties, Michael has developed a nuanced understanding of renovation, and he enjoys sharing both his knowledge and his list of qualified, reliable contractors. The two decades he spent working in corporate marketing—both as an individual contributor and team leader—have given him a talent for managing the details of complex, high-finance projects, which he now brings to the task of helping people buy or sell homes.
A lifelong Midwesterner and Chicagoan for over 20 years, Michael appreciates the diversity of the city’s neighborhoods and housing markets. He has personally lived in Lakeview, Lincoln Square, and Andersonville, and is ready to help clients research any region of the city based on their needs and lifestyle.
Outside of his real estate work, Michael has several passions, including spending time with his family, home renovation, gardening, cooking, traveling, and attending dinner parties with his friends. He also enjoys opportunities to stay physically active, whether at the gym or by taking long walks through Chicago’s neighborhoods.
