I enjoy assisting people with residential and commercial purchases.

My career in Real Estate has been varied. My experience includes being a State Certified Real Estate Appraiser, Commercial Property Manager, Residential Property Manager and a Public Sector Facilities Manager. I am now an Associate Managing Broker with Coldwell Banker.

Having taken home inspection courses and having the Real Property Administrator/ Manager (RPA) designation from the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) and an MBA-MPA degree from IIT, I bring you knowledge, credibility and customer service.

If you are looking for renovated homes/townhouses/condos above $150,000 and have consulted with a lender for a pre-approval letter, l am the Realtor for you.

Lender pre-approval is a critical requirement purchasing a property. It gives you comfort and leverage in the deal.

In addition to real estate, my interests include: Classic Cars, Motorcycling, Community Leadership, Community Gardening, and Olympic Judo.

My community invovlement on the far south is far reaching and includes: presidency of the West Chesterfield Community Association, board member of the Red Line Extension Coalition, Community Liaison of the Lake Calumet Vision Committee, Community Chairperson of the Chicago State University Community Caucus Action Council, paid member of the Rosemoor Community Association, and Greater Chatham Alliance as well as strong supporter of the Southeast Evironmental Task Force. In 2016 I was Chairman of State Representative Sims 34th District Transportation Committee.

I look forward to speaking with you about your real estate interests.

I’m delighted to say that Michael made my first time home buying experience an easy and seamless experience, and I learned a great deal from him about what goes into the home buying process. From the initial search which ranged several months on through finalizing the closing Mike was very courteous and professional. From assisting with finding financial assistance, and recommending legal aide, to his expertise in viewing properties and pointing out irregularities, knowledge of the neighborhoods in his area, to his stickler negotiation skills. Even after the sale Mike continued to follow up on open issues in making sure they were addressed accurately and accordingly. In my experience he puts his clients first and has their best interest in mind and I would most definitely seek his services for future buying or selling purposes.

I have worked with Michael several times on various real estate transactions. Unlike other agents I have worked with over the years, Michael is always very organized, knowledgeable and professional. He recently sold our very hard to sell short sale. He had to work with several different lenders and not the easiest buyers. But he got it done and made the process much easier for us than we thought it would be. He is a great realtor.

I'm not a huge fan of realtors but I have to say Michael was professional, but very responsive with whatever questions or needs I had no matter how small. Michael helped educate me throughout the process and helped me feel secure and trusted. He ran my comps in the area on multiple occasions, rent projections, closing cost projections, extremely responsive via text email and call, very honest, knowledgable in the market, he event sent the HUD-1 for my taxes. When I needed a real estate attorney and appraiser he had recommendations with feedback. My real estate attorney was nothing short of amazing. If youre new to buying or little experience I highly recommend utilizing Michaels services.
