Video Biography

Michael Kerins is not just a professional real estate agent; he is a proactive one, which can make all the difference in the success of your purchase or sale. Always on top of the market and always reachable, Michael takes every opportunity to scour the city for new properties and keep in constant touch with his customers and clients. He is just as driven to find new creative ways to fulfill their unique needs, and to present the most viable options to ensure success.

“Buying or selling a home is often complex, and the brunt of the transaction should be on the shoulders of the agent, not the buyers or sellers,” says Michael, who is known to go above and beyond in doing the homework and legwork necessary to streamline the process. Buyers and sellers praise his natural flair for communication and easy way of calming their nerves during a very emotional time. They also appreciate his constantly keeping them informed every step of the way to help them make smart, confident decisions.

“My focus is on providing excellent service and added value. From the fist-time buyer looking for their own piece of Manhattan to the seller or buyer of a larger apartment; I treat every customer and client with the same patience, understanding and professionalism.” Michael finds it truly rewarding to be an advocate for his buyers and sellers, and get them through a trying journey. In the end, negotiating a fair deal, and making customers and clients happy, is his ultimate goal.

A native of Huntington Beach, Michael attended Long Beach State University in California then worked in software development for 13 years as an independent consultant. He next worked in management, but realized his desire for greater interaction with people. After meeting his wife, Emma Kerins, who is a top-producing broker at Halstead, Michael himself was inspired to enter real estate in 2005. Formerly living in the West Village, the couple currently enjoys life in Harlem and work all across the city. In his spare time, Michael is a competitive beach volleyball player. He looks forward to putting his focus and high energy to work for you.
