WHY BUY WITH MICHAEL REPRESENTING YOU?
Michael knows houses from top to bottom. He considers himself to be a "Real Estate Technician". Michael actually enjoys "kicking the tires" and "looking under the hood" of every home his prospective buyers are considering purchasing. He truly wants his buyer clients to know everything about a house before they buy it, not after it closes escrow.

WHY SELL WITH MICHAEL?
Michael is also a proven marketing professional. He holds a Master's Degree in Business (MBA) from the University of Southern California, with an emphasis in Marketing. He also completed the school's prestigious Entrepreneur Program as well. He has a very hands-on, unique, and effective approach to marketing homes. Michael is also relied upon by his clientele for his solid negotiation skills, and his ability to efficiently resolve buyer issues and requests that sometimes arise during escrow.

MICHAEL - A FORMER BANK APPRAISER
Before becoming an agent in 1994, Michael was a real estate appraiser in the San Fernando Valley for 8 years, including holding the positions of Senior Appraiser and Appraisal Review Officer at Bank of America. Michael really knows what to look for when a potential buyer is considering the purchase of a home.

A LICENSED BROKER, NOT A LICENSED SALESPERSON
Michael is a licensed Real Estate Broker, not a Licensed Salesperson. There is a significant difference. Only about 35% of California real estate licensees are Brokers. Real Estate Brokers are generally more experienced and dedicated to the real estate profession.

VERY PERSONAL SERVICE
Michael never hands off clients or their transactions to salespersons or assistants. He is in the shrinking number of Real Estate Brokers that still actually work directly with their clients. He feels that he has an intrinsic duty to actually do the work for the clients that hire him. It's similar to wanting the doctor you are paying personally examine and treat you, not someone else in his office. And like doctors from the good old days, Michael still makes house calls!

NOT A "BIG BOX” BROKERAGE
Michael operates as an independent boutique real estate brokerage, not a national franchise or local chain. Accordingly, Michael can think outside of the box and be more responsive to his clients’ needs.
