Michael's interest in real estate began long before he moved to the Bay Area from Massachusetts in 1992. In Boston, he owned a landscape company, where he was often called upon to create "curb appeal" for affluent home sellers. It was then that he realized the difference that small details can make when marketing a home. However, he didn't follow the path into real estate right away. Instead, he became an IT professional, building a reputation as the person who tirelessly pursued solutions until his client's needs were met.
His clients have been as diverse as the San Francisco 49ers, Motorola, Blackberry, Symantec, and several Real Estate agencies and other small businesses, and his broad network of both local and overseas contacts hold to this day. One of those relationships in Hong Kong enables him to present his listings to Chinese buyers without the internet limitations established by the Chinese government.
As a Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Drysdale Properties professional, he has access to the most efficient, cutting-edge tools and technologies, and a highly skilled support team to connect with buyers and sellers, and provide them with the highest quality service in the industry. As a well-traveled business professional, he is known to numerous high-end buyers and sellers, who make up a solid base for his marketing reach.
The purchase or sale of a home is not just a business transaction. Michael understands that the process is one of the most important and personal experiences his clients will go through, and that timing, terms, and conditions are often as important as the price. He is well known for his dedication to getting to know his clients, his ability to clearly identify their needs, and his talent for finding solutions to any issue that might prevent them from attaining their goals.
More than 90% of potential buyers look for homes online first, and those first impressions are crucial in the home buying process, so they become crucial in presenting a seller's home to its best advantage. Michael's innate ability to recognize a home's primary selling points allows him to position each home in its most favorable light, and present it using ultra high-quality photos, cinematic video, and gorgeous virtual tours. Coupled with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices partnerships with the most popular home search platforms, each home is ideally positioned to attract the widest possible range of potential buyers.
When not serving clients, Michael takes an active part in community activities and lends both time and money to local charities and homeless shelters. He also enjoys exploring nearby cities, and attending social and community events in and around the Bay Area. Time and work permitting, he enjoys travel and has visited China and most countries in Europe.
Clients who choose Michael Buchsbaum can rest assured that their interests will be protected and promoted from the first meeting through closing and beyond.
