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

The process went, ultimately, very well with the team at Exclusive Collection. I found Heather to be very helpful and responsive to my needs, she was very quick to answer calls and respond to emails in detail. Not only would she respond with actual sentences (more than 2) but she provided follow up before I could pick up the phone to follow up. She kept me up to date on the whole process step-by-step to which is gladly appreciated. I would recommend Exclusive Collection to others due to my experience with them.

Found a tenant for a home in College Park, Fairview Shores, FL 32804.

It is a true pleasure to do business with Michael. It's totally stress free and I always have the confidence that I can count on what he promises. Many times I have asked his advice and it always has helped me to make a decision. Being away more than 2000 miles from my house, I have appreciated his willingness and of his associates to go and take a look on the house and he has been always very cooperative to send pictures for me to assess the situation with my own eyes. I have the utmost trust in him and I appreciate his kindness and the smile that I can sense when we talk over the phone.  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $400K in Palomar, Orlando, FL.

Michael and his team did an amazing job marketing and selling my home. I moved several times over the past ten years and this was the best experience I have had working with a real estate professional. I truly appreciated how easy they made it. I sold house in less than one week and could not have ask for more from the team when it came to managing all the details.  More Less
