Michael Forkas is a stellar real estate professional, with an impressive array of expertise. We were having a lot of difficulty with an extensive renovation project. At one point, Michael provided us with excellent advice. When we turned to him later, he offered his services to direct the renovation, market the property, and achieve a record sale for the neighborhood because of the excellence of the project outcome and inviting staging. He was a powerhouse in keeping everything moving, from the permit process, managing complex subcontractor projects, deciding on a unifying American Craftsman style, and completing the entire process including all real estate negotiations and contracts with minimal stress for us. He has made an immeasurable difference in our lives by helping extricate us from this difficult project, improving our finances, and being an awesome person.
