Jamestown Resident since: 2015 Hometown: New York, New York
Why I do what I do: I have been fortunate to have a long and prosperous career in real estate. Before falling in love with Jamestown, I practiced real estate law in Manhattan. I have helped purchasers and sellers close thousands of homes. My professional career has been dedicated to real estate with one notable exception as an art auctioneer and appraiser, fine art being my other passion.
A little bit about me: I have a BA from Bucknell University and a JD from New York Law. I have served on the adjunct faculty of NYU’s Real Estate Institute, Pratt Institute and the New York Real Estate Institute, where I lectured and taught real estate licensing courses, business law and real estate broker continuing education.
What I do when I’m not doing real estate: I enjoy spending time at the beach with my husband and twin son and daughter. Sometimes I like to code and build websites. I am proud to be the creator and webmaster for the Jamestown Community Calendar: JamestownRICalendar.com. I also enjoy helping out at the Jamestown Arts Center and on the exhibition committee.
Notable accomplishments in my real estate career: To me, the biggest accomplishment is a job well done. As a recent client put it in an online review: "Mike was an absolute pleasure to work with. He immediately understood my needs. He was super competent and extremely knowledgeable of the local area. I ended up with a home that surpasses my dreams thanks to Mike. I recommend him at the very highest level possible."
