Michael Kara represents the culmination of eleven years of hands-on real-estate experience during one of the most turbulent times in the market. While other brokerages folded under the economic pressure, Kara led his companies to achieve amazing milestones such as a 100% growth in 2008 and is currently in the top one percent of real estate agents in Orlando. Recently, Kara was also ranked 40 in RE/MAX's Top 100 Team Leaders in the nation through March 2013. He did this through a combination of flexibility and foresight, adjusting to customer needs and providing superior service with distressed sales long before other companies even knew what a short sale was.

Kara keeps himself in-the-loop with the continually evolving real estate market through constant study and education. A recent example is his awarding of the Luxury Marketing Specialist Designation from the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing. It is through the classic combination of education and experience that Kara has been able to display such successful business acumen, which he then passes on through invaluable coaching techniques to his team and fellow agents.

As such, in addition to being the current President and Broker at Kara Homes & Associates, as well as the Vice-President at both K&G Realty Management Services LLC and K&G Realty International LLC, he is continuing to expand his expertise into new markets. His latest venture is The RE/MAX Exclusive Collection, specializing in luxury home real estate in the Orlando and Central Florida area.

Team reviews

I was very impressed by Michael's knowledge of the area he services, and the fact that he has special agents for different areas of the city really helped me. Not only did Michael's office help me sell my house, they also helped me find a new place to live, and all the closings took place on the same day. I would use Michael's office again, and highly recommend to others looking to sell or buy in the Orlando area.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $275K in College Park, Orlando, FL.

A friend recommended Michael Kara to me to help with the selling of my parents' home. How pleased I have been in the whole process from first meeting Michael until the day of closing. Michael has been a realtor in the College Park area for 19 years and that is why we chose him. He did not let us down. My parents' house had to have some upgrades and Michael kept in touch with us on what was going on every step of the way. I have really appreciated his help more than he can know.  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Altamonte Springs, FL.

Michael has got it all... He came into our home, made recommendations on what he would do in preparation for sale if it was his home. We followed his recommendations, which was easy because he also provided contacts for all of the work we couldn't or didn't want to do ourselves. All of those contacts were very professional and their services were reasonably priced. Any time we had a question or concern, he or a member of his staff was right there... and they will contact you any way you are comfortable, phone, email, text, etc. The house was listed late on a Tuesday and by EOD Friday we signed a contract. Amazing! Everything else went as well through closing. Who knew it could be that simple!  More Less
