A Real Agent For The Real World
Michael started his career as a real estate following several years of assisting with the design, remodeling, and renting of foreclosure properties throughout the Rochester area. After working demolition and landscaping on his first house at 15, Michael continued working part-time through high school and college before moving on to work full-time in construction management. Following a brief tenure as a founding member of the boutique real estate firm ROC Real Capital, Michael joined Updegraff in February of 2017 to fully utilize his talents in the fast-pace environment of the firm and to focus on giving the best possible service to his clients.
With a background focused on economic and quantitative research from his time at the University of Rochester, Michael brings a new edge to client-support and real estate investment aimed at matching his client's long-term real estate goals with reasonable expectations. With every investment or owner-occupant opportunity, Michael is able to utilize his experience in construction management to accurately predict long-term costs of maintenance and remodeling, allowing clients to understand the full costs associated beyond the list price. Furthermore, Michael's constant research and tireless work ethic allow his clients to know about new deals and opportunities as soon as (or often before) they hit the market.
Whether you are a first-time home buyer, first-time investor, or eager seller looking for alternate and efficient marketing, Michael will determinedly strive to get you the best possible deal in the shortest possible time with the smoothest possible closing process.
