Selling a Matrimonial Home In a Divorce Is NOT a Typical Real Estate Sale:

It Has:

  • has different laws, rules, & regulations than any other typical real estate sale
  • requires specialized skills & strategies
  • requires different marketing plans
  • requires different staging techniques
  • requires different protocols for my office staff & team
  • can have many unexpected obstacles that general Realtors don’t anticipate and aren’t trained to handle
  • comes with many possible conflicts & battles (such as list price, showing schedules, & offer negotiations) that I must know how to deal with
  • delay your divorce if mistakes are made
Selling your home in a divorce combines two of life’s most stressful experiences; Moving & Divorce.

After 20 years of “transactional” real estate experience, and experiencing my own divorce, I’ve mastered the unique skills & processes needed to deal with the many obstacles that typically arise when selling a matrimonial home in a divorce

I also understand the emotions you are experiencing.

My job is to get both spouses the most amount of money in the shortest amount of time, and with the least amount of inconvenience.

You need an experienced Real Estate Divorce Specialist who knows the unique challenges of divorce real estate, and how to deal with them before they happen.

There is no other scenario where hiring the right professional is more important!

Did You Know:

Any Realtor will “say” they can sell your house. But if they don’t actually specialize in selling a matrimonial home in a divorce then you could suffer.
Your matrimonial home is likely your single largest asset. Among your highest priorities are your money & finances.
Chances are the largest portion of money in your settlement will come from the sale of your matrimonial home.

  • I support, educate, & nurture you through this time of upheaval and change
  • I help you reduce conflict, overwhelm, & unnecessary disagreements
  • I help you maximize your bottom line financially
  • I’m unbiased & NEVER choose sides
  • I help you interact with lawyers and other professionals you’re working with in your divorce.

Everything You Need to Know About Hiring a Real Estate Divorce Specialist

FACT: Hiring a Realtor to sell your home in a divorce is the most difficult & confusing professional you will hire.

The reason is because every professional you hire (Divorce Lawyer, Therapist, Divorce Coach, Financial Specialists) all work for you and ONLY you … not both you AND your spouse.

The most important [overlooked] fact is when you hire a Realtor to sell your matrimonial home BOTH sellers are my client.

I’m the only professional you hire who represents both of you at the same time. I owe you both my equal fiduciary duties, understanding, honesty, transparency, & lack of bias.

The reason most spouses can’t agree on a Realtor is that one spouse often thinks the Realtor will “take sides” with the other spouse.

As a Real Estate Divorce Specialist, I can’t pick sides.You want to feel safe and know that someone has your back.

You don’t want a real estate agent that simply plops a sign on the lawn or only cares about commission.

You need a Realtor who cares about what you’re going through.
You need a Realtor who will keep you safe, and help you navigate the transition.

You need a highly skilled Realtor who will get you as much money as possible for the sale of your home.

You need a supportive Realtor with top-notch people skills, communication skills, understanding, compassion, & patience.

You need a Real Estate Divorce Specialist who will do everything to make your life easier, less stressful, while avoiding the costly mistakes.

You need a “Certified Negotiator” who will keep you and your spouse focused on a win-win outcome when selling your home.


“Dear Michael, I can’t find the words to properly thank you & express my gratitude for the many ways you helped me through this nightmare. When 2 prior Realtors couldn’t sell my house & my ex-husband did everything to complicate the sale & make my life miserable I honestly lost hope. I couldn’t think straight & everything became so complicated.  Everything seemed to be going wrong. You got my house sold when 2 Realtors before you couldn’t and I still can’t believe how you stepped up to defend me & protect me from being taken advantage of by my unreasonable Ex. As if that wasn’t enough, I can’t believe you were able to buy me time with my bank who was threatening power-of-sale so that you could get the property sold in time. As a single Mom going through Chemo & kids to support my life would not be the same today if it weren’t for you. I’ll never forget everything you did for me and will always tell everyone that you are the best Realtor, Negotiator, and all around most honourable super-amazing guy they could ever work with. Thanks so much!”

“Michael, your ability to maintain the peace & keep us both focused on selling the property instead of focusing on our personal differences & the divorce was nothing short of amazing. You never seemed impatient, & you had such a calm, logical, & compassionate way of talking to my ex & getting us through the sale with less stress & in less time than it could have been.  I am very grateful. Thank You!”

D.T. Vaughan, ON.

“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 sell our house. We had no idea how the divorce process effects the sale of a matrimonial home. The way you communicated with my family Lawyer & made sure all of the T’s were crossed & I’s were dotted, and also made sure nobody in this process took advantage of me or made me feel pressured was very impressive. I really appreciate your tireless efforts. You have excellent real estate skills, negotiating skills, but just as important to me was your integrity & compassion every step of the way. You are da’ man!  You need to clone yourself so you can help more people.”

J.W., Mississauga.

“Michael, 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 and genuinely cared & 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, & recommend someone who could help us de-clutter, get organized, & fix a few things before listing. The storage facility you suggested was great, and the movers also did a great job and were understanding to our situation. My Ex always handled paying all of the bills, planning, etc. so I was grateful when you recommended a debt consultant & divorce financial advisor to help me get back on my feet and develop my own plan. Heck, I didn’t even know who to call for my insurance until you recommended someone for that too. No surprise that every single person you referred me to showed the same care, compassion, & professionalism that you do. You’re a one-stop source with the professionals you surround yourself with. Stay awesome Mike!”
