Helping a wide variety of buyers and sellers in Lake and McHenry Counties since 1988 to find the home that suits them or sell their home for the best price possible.
Licensed in April of 1988, I graduated from the Realtors Institute in November of that year and received my Broker's License the following May. I was inducted into the RE/MAX Hall of Fame in 1997, earned my Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) designation in 1999 and received a Lifetime Achievement Award from RE/MAX in 2006. I was the first Realtor in Illinois to receive the Resort and Second Property designation in 2007 and earned my Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource designation in 2010. As your Realtor I feel it is my job to: 1. Bring you market information, 2. Assist you in interpreting that information, 3. Discuss and understand your goals and time frame, 4. Market your property and give you feedback, 5. Assist you in negotiating 6. Follow through until closing I assist but YOU MAKE THE DECISIONS, because, after all, it's your house.
COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT I have served as Vice-president and Director of the Fox Lake Chamber of Commerce, President of the Fox Lake Elementary School Board, President of the Fox Lake Economic Development Corporation, and as a Member of both the Lake County Affordable Housing and Fair Housing Task Forces. I have been a Member of Mensa International since 1982. I was appointed to the Fox Waterway Agency Flood Task Force in 2008/09. After 5 years on the Fox Lake Plan Commission I now serve as Chairman of the Fox Lake Zoning Board as well as President of the Promote Fox Lake Committee, a non-profit group dedicated to beautifying our town. I’ve also been an alternate member of the Lake County Tax Board of Review since 2009.
REAL ESTATE I have been Corporate Vice-president of RE/MAX Showcase since 2004 with offices in Long Grove, Gurnee and Waukegan but I work out of my home office in Fox Lake most of the time. I am a Lifetime member of the Illinois Association of Realtors Diamond Club with an average of $6 Million in sales each year and a total of over $150 Million in sales since I began. I was selected by the Lake County Association of Realtors as Associate Realtor of the Year in 1995 where I served as a Director for 8 years. After merging into the Realtor Association of Northwest Chicagoland I served as a Director and various offices culminating in the Presidency in 2006. I have served on several State committees including 4 years on the Commercial/Industrial Committee. I spent 10 years as a Licensed Continuing Education Instructor for the State of Illinois and have spent many years teaching classes for the Board of Realtors.

Michael is always very flexible in requests to see a property, which he usually shows the property on the same day. Friendly, personable and will do searches on new property. I definitely would recommend him as an agent.
