michaeljkh7@gmail.com

My professional career has been built around Real Estate and the pursuit and workings therein. Being a licensed Realtor has provided me with the privilege of helping others navigate through the sometimes dizzying waters of the home buying process. I have found great satisfaction in protecting my clients interests and ensuring that they have all the tools and knowledge needed to be empowered in their transaction. Each day as I work on behalf of my clients, I stay ahead of the possible pitfalls that can frustrate and confuse what should be a straightforward process of buying or selling a home. In fact, it is what makes this job so rewarding. Knowing that my clients have peace of mind and clarity on what is, for the majority, their biggest investment. My business is not to shuffle paperwork and to collect a paycheck. On the contrary, my business is to help fulfill the next step in someone's future. And this, I take very seriously, since I know, that this is an important transaction that needs the best of care. What sets me apart from others is my diverse background concerning property. It all started with my mother and father, being Real Estate Brokers and placing in me the beginning knowledge of Real Estate. Moving onto my earlier career in construction and renovation of residential homes and commercial spaces, I learned a great deal about the inner workings of homes and what to look for in a good home. Taking my first step into property ownership with my first two family, I realized I had a knack for property. Purchasing rental property after that and going on to property management, I soon found myself jumping into the Real Estate field. My best days are spent assisting my clients by using all the tools at my disposal to negotiate and broker the best deal possible.
