"Michael is open, honest, and helpful. Me and my husband could not have gotten this house without him. For us being first time home buyer he made this journey go so smoothly for us. He is truly a great person and we are so lucky we happened upon his name looking for relators. Now he is person we will recommend to anyone looking for a house. I have to say I'm going to miss our trips looking for houses with him. We not had good times and good company but he really helped us on what to look out for when buying a house. For anyone who wants a realtor who is there for you and really looks out for you I highly recommend Mike. Thanks Mike for everything!"

★★★★★
"Mike was incredibly knowledgeable about each town we looked in and provided key information that made our decision that much easier. He is very responsive and always available for questions. He always solicited feedback so he can help narrow the search down as to not waste anyone’s time. I have recommended him to a friend who was looking for a great agent. You’d be remiss to not use Mike in your Home search."

★★★★★
"I met Mike at an open house and when it was time for us to start looking at houses, he was the person we called. He was great to work with and patiently showed me good, bad, and ugly. Even when he cautioned that a house might not be right for us (like one with clear foundation issues), he was happy to schedule a time to tour. Through offer and purchasing, Mike continued to be available to answer all questions or concerns we had and was a great business partner to have during a stressful time. While I do not plan to purchase another house any time soon, I do plan to recommend that friends and family members engage Mike when it is time for them to sell or buy real estate."

★★★★★
"Mike helped us secure our office for our in-home care agency. He was very knowledgeable about the cities that we wanted to research for our new location. He supplied us with a lot of options that were within our budget. Mike always responded to our emails and calls and did so in a timely manner. Overall Mike was a pleasure to work with. As we grow our business and need a larger office we will be working with Mike again!"

★★★★★
"Mike was a great help to us as first-time home buyers, walking us through each part of the process. At the same time I never felt rushed or pressured to make quick decisions. He patiently talked through different scenarios with us - and through a failed home inspection. He was always very responsive through email and text!"


About Mike
I’ve always liked being in positions that provided me an avenue to help others. I grew up in the Chicago area, attended college at Michigan State University and went on to law school at DePaul University.

After graduating law school and passing the bar exam, I moved into the recruiting field. This gave me the perfect opportunity to help others in a way that impacted not just the individuals themselves, but their families as well. I eventually started and grew a well-known recruiting firm, which taught me incredible lessons in entrepreneurship, marketing and negotiating for others. This allowed me to truly help others while providing for my own growing family.

Fast forward a few years later and I unexpectedly found myself a widower with toddlers. As everyone with children knows, balancing work and family life is a difficult juggle. It was through this process that I moved away from recruiting and into real estate. The move has been better than I could ever have imagined.

Real Estate combines my strong passion for helping others and utilizes my well-developed core skill set of negotiating, marketing, contract drafting, legalese, and analytic evaluation. It’s been an amazing journey. I’ve always been competitive, and this profession allows me the opportunity to feel a ‘win’ for those I’m helping. But what I didn’t realize is just how impactful the people I met would be, and how many have turned into lifelong friends.

Although those friendships haven’t helped me with an improved golf game, or increased my culinary skills (I unfortunately stink at both), I am confident these relationship are the reason my business has grown so quickly and catapulted me into the top 1% of agents in multiple markets.

Outside of work, I can usually be found talking up why the Chicago Bears are better than they appear, or how the Spartans will fare in March Madness regardless of their season record, or watching my kids at one of their sporting events, or working out at life time fitness.

If you are searching for executive representation in the purchase or sale of real estate, or just have a general real estate question, please feel free to drop a line.
