Michael Frontera, a full time Real Estate Broker Associate, is thrilled and honored to be a member of the Heritage House Sotheby’s International Realty office in Rumson. Michael’s professional background began at the age of 17 when he served as a stockbroker apprentice on Wall Street. After passing his registered representative licenses, ie; series 7 and 63 at the age of 19, Michael quickly became a rising star on Wall Street. A typical work day started at 4am prospecting clients overseas in Northern Ireland, Germany, Switzerland and the United Kingdom to name a few, and then ended around 9pm, prospecting clients on the west coast of the USA. Hard work, persistence and loyalty to his clients are synonymous with Michael. Growing through the ranks over a nine year period he established a stellar reputation while earning his Life, Accident & Health Insurance licenses in the banking arena for Fortune 500 companies including Citicorp Investment Services and JP Morgan Chase. Michael recognizes the extraordinary value of dedication, client relations and team work.
After a brief hiatus, Michael transitioned to his real estate career in late 2007 with a boutique firm in New York City located in Gramercy. Bringing with him the work ethic, determination and exceptional client service skills learned on Wall Street, Michael transcended through the real estate ranks swiftly. As his business grew, Michael realized New Development was soon on the horizon and moved to a prominent New Development Property Firm. Learning about New Development Marketing and every aspect of commercial construction, its corresponding financing requirements and structure incorporating hard and soft costs, Michael landed his first Condo Conversion project located in Harlem New York, turning a multifamily SRO into a 5 Unit Condominium Conversion project, and it grew from there.
After three prosperous years of being a licensed salesperson, to the day, Michael passed his Real Estate Broker’s License and started his own firm. Established first from his living room and going up against powerhouse New York City firms, Michael continued his success leading him to be a top broker, creating his extensive footprint in the Turtle Bay / Midtown East community. After seven successful years, Michael made a decision to further expand his business and expertise and joined a renowned well-established firm where he went on to earn numerous prestigious national awards in both Sales and Rentals volume, catapulting him further into multiple New York City Real Estate markets. Currently, Michael holds a license as a real estate broker associate in New York City with a well-established firm, continuing his New York City presence.
After moving to Monmouth County, Michael also earned his New Jersey Real Estate Broker-Salesperson License and is excited to bring his exceptionalism and enthusiasm to Heritage House Sotheby’s International Realty family, where his twenty five years of professional experience are ready to work for you, his client. An ecstatic resident of the community, Michael is passionate about Monmouth County and all it has to offer its residents.
