Michael Ackerman (and his partner Ron Waxman) take the care for being the best realtors we've come across. They helped us buy our first house and have subsequently sold a house for friend and helped two other friends buy houses. Everyone gives Michael huge thumbs up. Why is he so good?
-Michael knows the market very well, meaning: he knows neighborhoods, he knows how the "game" works on bidding, he knows the best loan structure, the best mortgage lenders, the best way to rise to the top in the list of potential buyers (it isn't all about money)...
-Michael gets to know his clients and befriends them- he learns about your values, your interests, your vibe and once he does, he nails the types of houses you are looking for- he has incredible intuitions and he was spot on with us everytime.
-Michael is the most hilarious man- we loved spending time with him (and Ron) looking at houses and we were frankly sad when we found our home because we knew we would see less of Michael- we looked forward to our outings like they were a double date of sorts- we laughed a ton and just had fun!
