Michael is a native of South Tampa...born and raised on Davis Islands. He is a graduate of H.B. Plant High ('89), the University of Florida (B.S. '93) and South Texas College of Law (J.D. '96). After three years of practicing real estate and corporate law with large law firms, Michael opened his real estate law practice in October of 1999.
At the same time, he began his real estate career by opening and operating the South Tampa office of Bayside Realty of Tampa. In November 2002, Michael's entreprenurial spirit kicked in again and he formed Palermo Real Estate Professionals.
Since then, Palermo Real Estate Professionals has developed into one of South Tampa's most respected real estate firms. Through the ups and downs of the real estate market, the premises upon which Michael built the company remain: real estate agents that are better-trained, better-educated, and always professional.
These three simple qualities together with a no-nonsense and no-fluff approach to real estate sales and marketing result in our clients receiving the best representation possible and, ultimately, success in their real estate endeavors.
