About Michael
Since beginning his career in real estate in 2008, Michael Gailey has quietly become one of the most highly regarded Realtors in the DC metro area. He credits simple things like genuinely caring about his clients, understanding the market, communicating effectively, and paying attention to the details. Michael loves details. He also really loves helping people achieve their real estate dreams.

"Buying or selling a home is an extremely important life event - both personally and financially," Michael says. "It is a huge thing to be entrusted with, and I treat it with the appropriate amount of care and respect. The most important thing to me is my clients to be very happy with the end result and very happy with all of my efforts to get us there. That drives everything else. Nobody cares more about doing a great job than I do.”

Michael was born and raised in Indianapolis and attended Miami of Ohio for college, where he studied marketing, management, and classical literature. This makes him a Midwesterner at heart, but DC is very much his home now. He spent his first seven years working in real estate here as an agent with one of the top producing offices in the entire country, and he moved to Compass in 2016 for its innovative technology and unparalleled agent support. In his free time, Michael enjoys exploring the city, seeing live music, and traveling to see old friends. After several years in Mount Pleasant, he and his wife now live in Glover Park with their two daughters and their rescue mutt, Zeus.
