He believes each property requires its own domain based presentation and strives to put forth a marketing effort that is consistent with the elaborate nature of his properties. Mike strongly feels that unique properties should be marketed not simply listed and a proper marketing requires proper presentation promoted by proper and extensive venues such as those provided by Sotheby's International Realty and its affiliates.
