ARE YOU FEELING OVERWHELMED, SCARED, STRESSED, OR DON’T KNOW WHO TO TRUST?
If you’re divorcing, and considering selling your home, you’re probably thinking:
- How do I protect myself from losing money?
- I’m so overwhelmed; Where do I start?
- Can I trust a Realtor to not choose sides between us?
I know how you feel. When I went through my own divorce I was overwhelmed. I worried all the time. I was constantly wondering:
How would I live without seeing my kids every day? Would they be OK? How was I going to survive financially? Would I be alone for the rest of my life? How would I ensure I got my share of money from the sale of the home when I didn’t trust my spouse, and I wasn’t sure where the Realtor’s loyalty was either?
It was one of the most traumatic experiences I’ve ever been through.
After 20 years of real estate experience, combined with my own divorce, I know first-hand that selling your “matrimonial home” through Divorce is NOT your typical real estate sale—and that you are facing unique challenges.
Any Realtor can put a sign on your lawn or treat you like another paycheque. But to me, you are a real person who is going through a stressful, heart-wrenching situation. That is why I chose to become a “Divorce Real Estate Specialist.”
Imagine … selling your home for the highest possible price, with the least amount of stress— and moving forward confidently into the next phase of your life.
It is possible—and I do everything to make it happen for you.
- As a professionally trained negotiator, I ensure that you get the highest price for the sale of your home — leaving more money in your pocket.
- If you and your spouse are uncomfortable meeting jointly with me, I will take the time to meet separately to have duplicate conversations with each of you — and document each conversation (if necessary).
- I act as your liaison between your matrimonial lawyers/mediator, real estate lawyer, and other professionals involved in the sale of your “matrimonial home”. That way, you don’t have to worry about shuffling documents. You can focus on getting your life back on track.
- I specialize in unique staging and marketing initiatives unique to Divorce sales and situations.
- Plus … I am connected to a vast network of the best specialists in the city, such as Financial and Insurance Advisors, Mediators, and Therapists, who work specifically with people going through Divorce. They can give you the answers you need and the help you are searching for long before you even decide to sell your home.
They are just as compassionate about your feelings, emotions, and concerns as I am.
In short, I offer a one-stop-solution to help you avoid costly mistakes and being taken advantage of, and to help you achieve the best financial result.
How can you trust that I’m the right person?
You already know about my extensive experience and proven results in divorce and real estate.
You could read my professional bio to learn more about my certifications, industry awards and of course the book I’ve written (which has been featured on TV) dedicated to helping people protect themselves and mak safe decisions when selling or buying a home.
But I definitely think you’ll learn more by looking below at the rotating comments my clients have said about me:
Michael, I can’t find enough words to properly thank you and express my eternal gratitude for all of the ways you helped me through this nightmare. When the two prior Realtors couldn’t sell my house, and my ex-to-be did everything possible to make my life miserable and complicate the sale, I honestly gave up all hope. I couldn’t think straight, everything was complicated and to be going wrong. Not only did you get my house sold when other Realtors couldn’t, I still can’t believe how you stepped up to defend and protect me from my hostile ex.
I can’t believe how you fended off the bank threatening power-of-sale so that you could get it sold. I can’t believe how you surround yourself with so many other stellar practitioners who you referred me to so that I could get the advice and guidance I needed to get through this phase of life. Not easy as a single Mom going through Chemo, with 4 kids to support and no income. If I live to be 100 years old and my life only gets better and better, I will NEVER forget everything you did for me, and I will always be telling everyone I know that you are the best Realtor, Negotiator, and all around amazing guy they could ever work with. THANK YOU!!!
Michael, your ability to maintain the peace and keep my ex focused on selling the property instead of focusing on our personal differences and the divorce was nothing short of amazing. You never seemed impatient, and you had such a calm, logical, and compassionate way of talking to my ex and getting us through the sale with less stress and in less time than it could have been. I can’t thank you enough.
Michael, if you ever choose to quit real estate you should be a lawyer. When we first interviewed Realtors we thought we just needed someone who could market and sell our property. We had no idea how the divorce process could affect the sale of the home, or my ability to get my equity out in cash so that I could move on you could help me find somewhere to buy.
The way you stayed in touch with my family lawyer every step of the way, and made sure all of the laws were followed, all of the T’s were crossed and I’s dotted, and also that my Ex and the buyers didn’t take advantage of me or back me into a corner was very impressive and most appreciated. You continually demonstrated superior real estate skills, negotiating skills, integrity, and compassion every step of the way. You are da’ man! Thank You … Thank You … Thank You!
It’s true what you say in your book that “we don’t know what we don’t know”. I assumed (in error) that every Realtor knows how to negotiate. I couldn’t believe it when you told me that negotiating is not part of the training to get a real estate license, and you invested your own money to become a trained negotiator. And WOW you impressed me.
The way you handled negotiations for us was amazing to watch. How you remained calm, focused, and strategically helped us choose our counter-offers and reach our decisions was a clear indication that you are an expert at what you do. And the fact that we sold for the highest price on the street and we got the more money in our pocket than we ever thought possible was the best ending of course. Much thanks.
Michael, you are not just a divorce realtor, you are a divorce guru. When we first hired you as our realtor, I was still stressing over the whole divorce process. I didn’t know who to trust, who to call, who to hire, or which end was up. The fact that you didn’t see us as a mere commission opportunity but you genuinely cared and took the time to help me through the process was an answer to my prayers.
You made my life so much easier when you said you would take care of the stager, photography, and recommend someone who could help us de-clutter, get organized, and fix a few things before selling. The storage facility you suggested was great, and the movers also did a great job and seemed understanding to my situation. My ex always handled paying all of the bills, planning, etc. so I also was grateful that you could recommend a debt consultant and accountant to help me get back on my feet. I didn’t even know who to call for my insurance until you stepped up to recommend someone for that as well.
No surprise at all that every single one of the people you referred me to had the same care, compassion, and professionalism that you do. I’m going to tell everyone that you are the best realtor, divorce guru, and one-stop-guy to help your clients get their life back on track. I’ve already told two friends about how wonderful you are. Stay awesome guru Mike!
