About Michael

Michael was born and raised in Connecticut and moved to Manhattan over 25 years ago living on the Upper East Side, Upper West Side, Inwood and most recently, Harlem. Having owned condos, co-ops and now a brownstone, Michael takes his first-hand knowledge of NYC real estate and personalizes it based on his experience, coupled with the needs of his clients. Since 2011, he has managed a top-rated vacation rental that, based on the reviews, has proven his customer service is exemplary.

Prior to his career in real estate, Michael worked as a PMP-certified project manager driving delivery of complex technology solutions in several of the world's largest banks where his excellent planning, organizational and relationship skills were essential. These skills translate very well into the real estate world where he helps clients strategize and successfully navigate through what can be a very complex process. Michael has a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering from the University of Connecticut and enjoys running, reading, cooking and traveling the world with his wife and son.
