Testimonials: We are delighted to endorse Michael for his exceptional service on both the sale of our home and purchase of our new condo. Michael displayed absolute professionalism throughout both transactions and earned our trust and confidence immediately. He became our advisor, taking ownership and supervising at all stages, always keeping us informed and protecting our interests while making the buying and selling process a pleasant experience. Most importantly he took a personal interest in our welfare and satisfaction. Examples of his distinguished service include finding us a condo to purchase before it came on the market and during a time when there was very little inventory to choose from, engaging specialists to help prepare our home for sale, patiently educating us on market conditions and guiding us through the buying and selling process. We would enthusiastically recommend Michael to anyone who needs assistance from a highly competent, diligent and trustworthy Realtor. Thank you for a job well done! ~ Joyce and Donald O., sold in Cherry Creek and purchased in Englewood in 2013 We enjoyed our times looking for our new home with Michael! He was responsive and was very flexible and available to meet our schedules. Michael was a good negotiator when it came to negotiating the contracts and inspection resolutions and had solid and unwavering advice for a prudent path to complete the deal successfully. At the same time, he was willing to listen to our opinions and follow whatever direction we chose even if it went against his advice. He was very knowledgeable about the transaction processes and was helpful when we had questions and issues with the lender. Overall, it was a good experience. ~ Renee and Nick E., purchased in Denver in 2013 Michael was very diligent in getting our house on open house tours and hosting open houses. We had prospective buyers in the house almost everyday. He was good at reading the feedback provided by the prospective realtors and advising a course of action to better our chances at a sale. Overall, he provided good advice and a successful sale. ~ Renee E., sold in Denver in 2013 Personal: Bachelor's degree - Wharton business school at University of Pennsylvania Master's degree - Kellogg business school at Northwestern University Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Languages: English
