From newspaper journalist to radio talk show host, Michael's career path over the past 30 years has been varied to say the least.  Yet one thread throughout his professional history has remained unwavering: his ability to communicate clearly, honestly and consistently with his audience and clients.  Born in Caracas and raised in Florida, Michael's last relocation was from Atlanta to Boston in 1987 when he became a marketing executive with Talbot's Catalog Development Group.

Since then he has worked in the field of Creative Services Management for various firms including his last corporate placement as Vice President of Creative Services for MFS Investment Management in Back Bay.  His passion for writing and marketing, combined with his entrepreneurial spirit, ultimately led him back to writing (as a freelancer for various publications) and into the world of broadcasting as host of two radio and cable access programs: "Open House" and "The Living Room."

In 2003 he was persuaded to try his hand at real estate sales in order to combine his marketing savvy and personable nature in an entirely new field.  He worked for seven years at Metro Realty Corp. in Brookline as both a Realtor and the agency's Sales and Marketing Manager. In 2010, Michael began working at Hammond Residential Brokerage in Boston and two years later joined the Jamaica Plain office of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. In late 2014, Michael joined the newly opened office of Keller Williams Realty in Brookline.

Ratings & Reviews

Michael is an excellent realtor. We recently sold our home outside Boston with him and he exceeded our expectations. We had already moved away from the area so Michael filled in as coordinator, handyman, along with his usual duties as our realtor. His expertise, along with his humor and dry wit, were so appreciated during this process. I would strongly recommend Michael to anyone looking for a realtor in Boston.

Bought a home in 2014.

Pleasant, reliable, always avaliable and just an overall nice guy.

Highly recommend Michael to everyone.

I sent Michael a bunch if listings I was interested in, he quickly set up all the appointments and took me and the wife out to see all the places same week. Talked to us about neighborhoods, homes, helped identify comps and help us compare streets.

Yes, everything you expect of an agent. However, its not always what you get. Not many agents ive dealt with were as easy going yet thorough. He had answers to every question before purchase and during he purchase. Anytime I needed any paperwork Michael sent it before I asked.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $675K in Jamaica Plain, Boston, MA.

Michael was not only very knowledgeable about our preferred neighborhoods (Brookline, Jamaica Plain, South End), but he was always a lot of fun to be around. He has a great sense of humor! This is a tough market to break into, especially as first time home buyers. Michael kept our expectations in check, while also speaking up about potential downsides to specific properties when he thought they wouldn't be a good fit. Overall, he was quick to respond to our questions and concerns, and even canceled a dinner with his friends one evening to show us a property. He ended up being on vacation the week of our final walk-through and closing, but he made himself available via email/phone and everything went smoothly. I wouldn't hesitate to work with Michael again in the future.  More Less
