Mike was born and raised on the Upper West Side, and while he doesn't expect you to commit everything about him to memory, you should note... he's a real estate pro who's fully committed to the Upper West Side. Many brokers and agents will tell you they serve all of Manhattan. Mike knows the value of really knowing his community and how buyers, renters, sellers and landlords appreciate working with a neighborhood expert (which is why he created I Love The Upper West Side -- a place to gather as a community and learn about the best properties on the market). If you're a renter, you should talk to Mike about his three showing challenge. Mike has such a good handle on the Upper West Side market that once he knows more about your needs, there's a good chance he'll find you the right place in record time. Mike's in good with landlords who value their property and rent to good people. He has access to unique brownstones and townhouses that other agencies don't have. He's also very well connected with building managers which means you'll have plenty of options when it's your time to rent. If you're a buyer, Mike likes to help your dollar stretch. He's a stickler for making sure your home isn't just a purchase but a smart buy. Don't be shy, Mike's great about handling the details so that you can focus on what you do best. If you're a seller, you're in luck. Mike builds relationships and with many who are interested in becoming homeowners. Mike helps buyers appreciate the convenience and attraction of each Upper West Side block. He's a sales veteran with a marketing degree and there's a long term renter out there just waiting to buy a home like yours. Needless to say, if you're a landlord and you're not already working with Mike, you should give him a call NOW. Why? Because Mike's got a waiting list of qualified renters who are looking for the perfect place- you're really missing out!
