Michael is also actively involved in the Habitat For Humanity organization.  In 2006 Michael flew to Baton Rouge, LA to help build 4 homes in a one week blitz for families whose lives were devastated by Hurricane Katrina. There he worked side by side with not only the families who were going to move into the homes, but also with 100+ Realtors from all over the country with a common goal and interest.


Clients are saying:

"From the moment I met Michael, I knew I was in good hands. He was very sympathetic to what we needed done, given we were selling my recently deceased's mother's home. The home needed some work and Michael had a resource list that was quite extensive. Each person on that list did an absolutely wonderful job, whether it was the painters, junk removal, estate sales people, carpeting, general handyman or attorney to help with the closing. Once the home was ready to be listed Michael suggested a competitive listing price and of course, we had a contract within a week of listing it! We sold the home in the fall, the slower period in fact. I am certain that were it not for Michael, we would still be trying to sell my mother's home.

Thank You Michael!!!!"
