At the helm of an enterprise situated in one of the most diverse places in the world—Queens, New York—Michael has crafted a career defined by consistent performance and client-care, catering to backgrounds that span the globe. For thirty years, he has cultivated a masterful track record of success and a strong connection to his local community.
Michael and his team serve the New York City metro area, with a particular focus on serving the region’s kaleidoscope of ethnic representations. In fact, pooling the fluencies of his team of originators, Michael’s office has command of seventeen different languages—an asset in an area known for its cultural array. Likewise, his office’s direct lender offerings run the gamut: Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, Ginnie Mae, and even products geared toward investors—to name only a few. With an impressive 95% rate of repeat and referral clientele driven primarily by real estate agents and past clients, Michael’s presence in the Queens area is well-established, equipped with a reputation for specialized, client-tailored service. “We’re a very diverse team,” he explains, “and we cater to individual needs.”
To keep in touch with clientele past and present, Michael and his team prioritize face-to-face time as often as possible, in addition to utilizing social media and e-mail as a means to stay connected. Because his office has deep, long-lasting roots in the community, Michael’s marketing efforts are largely organic—from word of mouth and a sizable referral network, to staying involved in the community’s various events, year-round. “With the number of years I’ve been in business, people really get to know you,” he says, “especially in the New York metro area.” As time goes on and new buyers enter the market, Michael and his team make a concerted effort to stay current with industry developments, regulations, and products. “We stick to our model that works, but we adjust to the newer generation,” he explains. “We keep a constant focus on what we do, and we’re always eager to improve.” While Michael’s professional acumen has been sharpened by time earned in the industry, he keeps a firm grip on what drives his business at its heart: people. “My favorite part about what I do is reaching a successful end result and seeing clients’ satisfaction,” he reflects.
Because his office is localized in its service scope, it is little wonder that Michael and his team are avidly involved in their local community, participating in charity functions and area events. In his free time, Michael enjoys unwinding over a long walk and exploring new places through travel.
As for the future, Michael has plans to continue his business’s positive impact in the Queens and New York metro area, with hopes to bring their services to millennial buyers seeking to buy or sell. He also hopes to further ingrain his business in the local community, reaching out to create more ties and broaden his network.
