Mike Mogavero boasts a notable sales career that spans over 30 years. Surrounded by a family that shares a passion for significant landmark properties in Boston and Los Angeles, this shaped his career and why he is known for representing notable properties. Over the course of his career, Mike has built a strong global portfolio of high net-worth clientele.
An artful marriage of an exacting presentation, staging, thorough and specific marketing, and a precision approach to showing and selling fine homes and estates and identifying properties where homeowners and investors can add value, are all hallmarks of what Mike does best. His style balances presentation, talented negotiation and a successful close.
Mike's unique approach to real estate is his intuitive, yet impressively accurate, valuation of a home. He is very in tune with the emotional impact of properties and how that drives buyers’ decisions. He focuses on meticulously staging his listings with designs specific to the area and audience. Knowing just how buyers will perceive a property allows his uncanny confidence in their willingness to pay.
