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.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 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

Sold a Condo home in 2014 in Ardenwood, Fremont, CA.

Michael Kara and his team did a wonderful of guiding me down the long and tumultous road known as the short sales process. There were ups and downs but they persevered and took me to the end. I certainly would not have the knowledge or the time to have done this myself and I thank them for all their efforts!  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Orlando, FL.

Fantastic experience. Michael and his staff were very available throughout the entire process and explained everything in detail with a very quick turnaround. They made it very easy to sell & close for us while we were out of state.
