More about Mike Podolinsky
I believe that communication is the key to any relationship, and is equally important in business... Communicating with all involved, to ensure that every step of your buying or selling experience is as stress-free as possible. Having been part of the real estate industry for 20 years, and licensed since 2009, I pride myself on keeping up to date with the latest market trends and technology, to be able to offer the best service to each and every one of my clients. Commitment to my clients has been critical to my success, and Coldwell Banker's culture of innovation, knowledge - sharing, combined with its reputation for superior service, only enhances the experience of my clients. As part of Coldwell Banker Real Estate, I'm able to offer buyers and sellers a wide variety of market-relevant products and services, as well as robust online marketing programs and related services. Having working 20+ years in the Retail Industry and transferring to New Areas many, many times, I understand the anxieties associated with a move, and offer my expertise to provide a smooth transaction, from beginning to end.
This experience also enables me to respect the business side of selling/buying leasing of Commercial Properties and the business side of things. I feel I am a well rounded agent that can provide the "Full Service" my clients need and deserve.
