As a former United Nations speechwriter for the Ambassador from Thailand, Michael brings an international understanding and flair to an already sophisticated New York clientele. A 20-year resident of Manhattan, he arrived in New York after graduating with a degree in International Relations from Brown University. Forgoing a further degree in International Public Law from Cambridge University in Great Britain, Michael developed an illustrious career in executive search, becoming the highest rated consultant worldwide at one of the nation's leading executive search firms. He is also bilingual in English and German.

Over the course of two decades, Michael has lived in various neighborhoods throughout Manhattan. Whether you are seeking a home uptown or downtown, east side or west, his thorough understanding of the city's diverse neighborhoods will instill confidence in his ability to satisfy his clientele's specific set of requirements.

Rounding out Michael's perspective, dedication and knowledge is his involvement with the homeless in New York that gives him special insight into neighborhoods unknown to most. His devotion to the city's poor and homeless is reflected in his commitment to helping his clients find homes of their own. "Finding a home is a human necessity for people from all walks of life," says Michael, whose clients greatly appreciate this philosophy on real estate, service and success.

Michael's service to others began 20 years ago caring for the severely and profoundly retarded. More recently he has worked in homeless shelters and as a tutor for victims of torture seeking asylum in America. Michael's clients benefit not only from his academic and professional prowess, but his devotion to helping others and attention to the best interests of his clients.

Bought a Condo home in 2012 in Chelsea, New York, NY.

Michael Hennessy Brokered a large condo purchase for my very dear friend from California. He was diligent in finding us the most unique property on the market at the time. He was very patient in explaining the rather complex legalities of purchasing a "cond-op" and made the whole process so simple and streamlined for us. He is my go to Real Estate Agent here in NYC.  More Less
