Michael places a premium on convenience for his clients. His concierge-level service allows his clients to continue living their lives while Michael handles even the most minor details throughout the sale or purchase process. “I want my clients to understand their transaction, but not be stressed by it,” Michael says. “I provide them with frequent updates as well as the information and advice they need to make sound decisions.”
