"I can not thank you enough for recommending Michael Johnson to sell our apartment. ... Michael is simply a singular and extraordinary person. He is unflappably professional, kind, patient, hard working, immaculate in all things, and honest." - Ted and Priscilla

"Michael was unfailingly patient. He gave me good advice and I ended up with a wonderful apartment in the perfect neighborhood. When he found it, he knew instantly that it was perfect for me; he got me in the very first day and my offer was accepted. This market is very challenging for buyers, and you need to have someone like Michael working with you to make sure you get your dream apartment!" - Kristina

About Michael
Driven by passion and creativity, Michael Johnson began his accomplished NYC real estate career in 2001. He has ranked in the top tier of sales agents nationwide, is licensed as an Associate Broker, and holds the prestigious Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE) designation. In 2007, Michael formed a partnership with Hayim Nommaz that heightened the excellent service he provides his clients even further. The Johnson & Nommaz Team has achieved an exemplary track record of sales, and as importantly, built their business on an incredibly robust referral and repeat client base.

Representing a domestic and international clientele, they handle a wide array of transactions from rentals in every price range to luxury sales of apartments and townhouses throughout Manhattan. Investors have also entrusted these industry experts with transactions, purchasing $5M+ properties sight unseen, which attests to the incomparable knowledge, market savvy, and honest guidance they infuse in every deal.

Operating with utmost integrity and sensitivity, Michael takes pride in navigating clients through all market conditions while helping them make decisions that positively impact their lives and financial security. The Johnson & Nommaz Team takes each client’s need to heart, gives their all to every deal, and puts the COMPASS in COMPASSION which is the hallmark of their unique brand of service. “We are not one-time transactional brokers. Rather, we consider ourselves advisors who are in it for the long haul and go above and beyond to protect our clients’ best interests, and be their go-to resource for life.”

Formerly in advertising with top names like Marvel Comics and Ogilvy & Mather, Michael perfected the arts of client service, attention to detail and analytical thinking, seeing every project through to successful completion as he does in real estate. He also served on the Advisory Council (for ethics and policy) at a prior brokerage and contributed to their philanthropy group, demonstrating his high standards and care for the community.

Born in Chicago and raised in South Florida, Michael moved to New York in 1990 and graduated from Cornell University. Living in NYC since 1995, he’s served on the boards of his current Chelsea condo and former co-op on Lower Fifth Avenue. Michael has sold extensively in both buildings and renovated multiple times, so understands the process and value potential. Outside of work, he enjoys time at his Connecticut home with his partner and Cairn Terrier Henry. His hobbies include boating, water skiing, movies and binge tv, wine, pop culture, and family time.
