Has Your Home Failed To Sell?


Join Our Expired & FSBO Club

The Michael Kaim Team Specializes in Selling Properties that Other Agents Failed To Sell.
Utilize our Aggressive Marketing Approach Well make your listing appear fresh and new to buyers

Mr. & Mrs. Whalen had their home for sale for 2 years with 3 Top Realtors in Northeast Ohio. They were looking for an Aggressive agent that could sell the home for a good price and within a short period of time. Their home expired off the market and Michael contacted them at their Florida residence to notify them that their home was no longer listed. A few weeks later Michael met with the Whalens and listed their home. After listing with Michael, the home sold in 2 months and for 97 percent of the asking price!

The Michael Kaim Team

Our home was a For Sale by Owner and we tried selling for a few months on our own before we listed with Michael. Upon listing Michael brought 2 different Buyers to the table interested in buying the home for full asking price. Michael and his team were wonderful! Phil & Sue Vaughan

As a custom Home Builder I put some pretty high expectations on Michael and his team. We were in the process of building a home for ourselves and we were interested in selling this home for a good price fast. Michael did just that, he was honest with us upfront regarding price and he did what he said he was going to do. He sold our home in 18 days and got us within $5,000 of our asking price. Since selling our home we have referred several customers of ours to Michael and his team.

Carl Jonke I cant tell you how many sleepless nights Ive had, Jonke said. I wake up saying, I owe half a million dollars. It was supposed to be a quick money-making deal. Instead, it ended up becoming a prolonged, money-losing one. BUT Michael got the bank to forgive Jonke about $200,000, and he is close to completing a short sale an agreement he deems phenomenal and one that saved him from foreclosure.

Testimonials

Ken and Linda had their Lake Erie front home for sale with Michael using traditional methods of selling for 10 months asking $499,900. In that time they generated over 40 showings on the home and 3 offers. Their highest offer was $417,000. Getting frustrated with the low ball offers they wanted a little more aggressive approach so they looked to Michael for some advice. Michael had just launched his AUCTION division and wanted to use this sales approach to generate multiple offers and sell the home quickly. When he listed the home at the starting bid price of $399,900 he generated 12 showings and an acceptable offer of $450,000 within 3 weeks. We were very apprehensive to Auction our home, however, Michael produced an offer $33,000 more than using the traditional route, try the Progressive Auction it works! Ken and Linda Orlowe

Dear Michael Kaim, I am writing to tell you about the excellent job you did in selling our home located at 8715 Johnnycake Ridge Road, Mentor, Ohio. We had tried to sell it a few years ago with no success, all we got were comments that it was on a busy main road and next to a gas station, so to our disappointment we lost the home we wanted to buy. Last fall we purchased a new home and this spring listed our present home again only to hear the same comments. We were on our second realtor when he added to the list of reasons people would not want to buy our house, the school levy, which was to be voted on, we owned the house no one wanted. Then I remembered the letter that you mailed us that stated that our home should have sold in the first 30 days of listing and I wondered why it did not. I gave you a call and after listening to your plan for marketing our home, we cancelled our listing with the real estate company we were listed with and listed with you. Thank you for not saying we lived on a busy main highway, and next to a gas station and for not mentioning the school levy, we loved our location and hoped someone else would too. You are a true professional realtor. My husband and I were impressed with your extensive experience and marketing skills, a true asset for a well dressed polished professional. I am truly glad I saved your letter, you came to our rescue and saved us the expense of owning two homes for any longer than possible. Three days after listing our home, you produced a contract and a sold sigh in my front yard. Michael you are a miracle worker, you did in three days what was impossible for four other realtors to do and you did it in an extremely professional and courteous way. You are a highly qualified professional realtor who can get the job done and we will highly recommend you. Thank you, we really appreciate all your good efforts. Sincerely, Barbara Boczek
Our home sold very fast (11 days) and for premium dollar! Michael brought 2 offers within the first two weeks on the market and sold it for $3,000 over the asking price. It was the highest sale on the Street - record breaking sale price! Terry Wright

Dear Michael, I really appreciate all the help during these past few months to move along the sale of my properties. It has been a challenge getting through the nancial dealings to the loss of my husband, but with your help, it made the tasks much easier. I cant say enough about your team, especially Denise, Missy, Hannah and Jason. They were always available when I had questions or needed help. You may recall our initial conversation, where I mentioned that at this point in my life, I just wanted to simplify things and just enjoy life. Well, I think weve gotten over that hurdle and Im on my way! Please accept this gift basket as a token of my appreciation. I wish you many happy, peaceful and fullling years ahead. Sincerely, Cynthia Millonzi

Testimonials

Dear Michael Kaim and Team, I am writing a letter in regards to the sale of our home on Johnnycake Ridge Road in Concord. Joe and I found the home of our dreams. We purchased our new hone and put our old home for sale through a small realty company. Our home did not sell during the time of our contract with the other realtor. The day after our contract had expired, I received a phone call from Michael Kaim asking to have us interview him and hire him to sell our home. After so much discouragement over the previous realtor, my husband and I decided to put our home up For Sale by Owner. However, everyday Michael was calling the house, very politely, and asking us to just give him a few minutes and interview him. After about 4 weeks of us trying to sell our home on our own, my husband and I decided to go ahead and interview Michael. When I called Michael that day, we made an appointment to come over to the house and talk with him. During this time, Michael explained his selling strategies, and how he and his team could sell our home. He showed us articles from local newspapers on how he could sell the unsellable home. He was positive, and extremely professional during his presentation. Even though we did not sign with Michael that day, he called daily to follow-up to see if we had made a decision. After about one week, Joe and I decided to sign with Michael. On the day we signed the contract, he assured us of his work. Michael said, I guarantee my work. Michael contacted my husband on any activity on the house. Finally after about 90 days, we got the bite we were looking for. We had an offer! On the evening the offer came across, and Michael had a signed contract from the new owner, Michael rushed over at 9:30 p.m. to have us sign. That showed me that he denitely goes above and beyond his call of duty. Four weeks later and many phone calls to Joe, our house that we had been trying to sell for 8 months nally closed, and the day I saw the SOLD sign up will forever be one of my most memorable days! Michael and his staff worked diligently to make sure that we were happy and also that the new owners were satised. I want to thank Michael Kaim and his entire team of supportive staff at Prudential Select Properties for all of their hard work and dedication. Each and every time I called, which was quite often, they all treated me very professionally and it seemed to me like we were their only client. They all took the time to answer any questions we had along the way, and for that I commend the entire team. Thank you so much for all your hard work and dedication in making the sale of our home a very pleasant experience. I will be sure to refer The Michael Kaim Team in the future. Sincerely, Joe and Ronnie DeMarco

My Lakefront Condominium was a second home for me and I needed it sold while I resided in Florida. Michael was able to sell my home for $28,000 more than any other home in the entire Harbor Towne Subdivision. I netted $5,000 more than what I expected from the sale of my property! Great job!! Charles Hall

Dear Michael, Tina & Team: We just wanted to thank you all so very much for all your hard work and dedication. It was truly a pleasure working with the Michael Kaim Team. We only wish we would have contacted you rst when putting our house on the market. We are so impressed with the way you handle everything. When you do something, you do it RIGHT! We will denitely be dealing with you again when we sell our current home. Again - thanks for everything!

David, Sherry, Jordan & Alexandria Greer

Dear Michael, We wanted you to know what a positive experience we had selling our home with your team. You are aware of the terrible experience we had with other realtors, so we were somewhat apprehensive this time around. Everyone on your team (especially you and Tina) were courteous and knowledgeable. Once again, thank you. You and your team certainly know the meaning of customer service. Sincerely Karen & John Sarosy

Michael Kaim
Michael Kaim was honored with the highly prized Pinnacle Award by the Ohio Association of REALTORS in 2004. His is a story that begins at home. Imagine growing up in a family where dad broker/ agent was the top agent in Ohio with the top real of the month estate firm. That was the scenario for Michael, our May 2005 BROKER AGENT Magazine cover story Agent of the Month, in Cleveland, Ohio. Michaels passion for the real estate business began at a very early age. His father was in the real estate business with the R.A. Gall Company during the 1960s when his father, Frank Kaim, was the number one agent with the R.A. Gall Company,the top real estate firm in Ohio. Frank Kaim later moved to Pena Realty - Gallery of Homes, to manage the Mentor office which he quickly propelled from last place in the Gallery of Homes organization to the number one revenue producing office. In 1975, Frank and Michaels mother, Jane Kaim, opened the first Century 21 office in Northern Ohio and quickly propelled it into being the number one agency in the state and the number 10 Century 21 real estate agency in the country. Real estate was to be Michaels destiny from those early years, growing up in one of the top real estate families in Northern Ohio. Even now, he still recalls the special days when his father would take him to Sheriffs auctions, where he would place Michael on his shoulders to let him raise his hand to signal his fathers bid. As the years swept by, his mom and dad continued their success story in real estate, and Michaels dreams began to evolve into the determination that soon, he too could become a top producer in the industry. Fresh out of college with a degree in Business Marketing and a real estate agent license in his pocket, Michael attended a real estate seminar in Chicago where he met Carlos Justo, a Miami, Florida REALTOR* that many refer to as the Icon of Luxury Home Sales. Carlos had an average per

An Extraordinary Success Story

unit sales price of more than $4 million. Many of the homes Carlos sold were the properties of Hollywood stars, professional sports personalities and business tycoons. Michael recalls that his pulse was pounding as he thought of himself trying to list and sell million dollar homes for someone in the entertainment industry or for a well known business personality. But he was sure of one thing; thats what he wanted to do. He wanted to be the best Realtor he could be and to do that meant working with the best real estate agents he could find. At the conclusion of the seminar, Michael rushed forward to meet Carlos and appeal to him for an opportunity to join his team and learn first hand how to sell real estate at prices most agents only dream about. Michael isnt sure if it was his rabid enthusiasm or sheer audacity that caught the attention of Carlos, but four months later, Michael left the Cleveland area to join Carlos Justo in Miami, Florida. It was an experience that most REALTORS* would consider the opportunity of a lifetime; working with one of the nations top real estate agents as he skillfully applied his professional knowledge to the challenging demands of some of the richest, most famous people from around the world. After two years of watching, learning and working with his mentor, Michael was anxious to return home and put into action the many ideas he had garnered working in the Miami marketplace. When asked by Carlos what he had learned over the past two years, Michael thought about it for a few moments and responded, Good customer service is crucial to continued success. Knowledge of the real estate business is also essential. Understanding the marketplace and the factors that inuence buying and selling conditions are also very important. Above all, an agent needs to spend most of their time doing the things that can make them the most money, which is listing and selling real estate. Michaels mentor smiled and said

Very good! And now its time for you to do those things for yourself and I wish you well. In late March 2002 after training and selling in Miami, Michael moved back to Cleveland to start his own real estate team, once more joining his father in the transition from Century 21 to Prudential Select Properties. By May of that year, he had reactivated his Ohio real estate license and started selling once again in his hometown of Mentor. He began with the basics and hit the streets by knocking on doors and contacting "For Sale By Owner" and expired listings. By July 2002, Michael was recognized as the top listing agent in the Mentor office. By August 2002, with more than 20 homes in his listing inventory, Michael partnered with his sister, Tina Hivnor, a licensed agent with 15 years experience. Together, they managed the listing inventory and followed up on closing the sales transactions. By establishing a partnership, Michael found he had more time to focus on listing and selling. In September, Michael and Tina expanded the team by hiring buyer agents who specialized in buyer representation. The addition to the team helped with the overflow of buyer calls from the extensive amount of advertising and promotion. As sales increased, Cindy Sorgen was hired as the Team Assistant and Listing Manager. Cindy had a real estate background, and she was a great addition to the team, and contributed greatly. Cindy's contribution to the team gave Tina additional focus as the Closing Coordinator and Team Manager. By year end, Michael and his team were positioned as the #8 top producers in the company, a high achievement after only eight months of active selling. In 2003, Michael's first full year in the Cleveland market began in full swing. Michael expanded his team again in July 2003 as Jason Hadad, followed by Jennifer Hart, joined the team as Sales Partners. In early spring '03, the Michael Kaim Team was a leading office producer in listings and sales. By the end of 2003, Michael and his team had accomplished what few others had accomplished in such a short period of time. His team had listed 111 properties and sold nearly 80 properties. This accomplishment put them over $12 million in home sales and over $20 million in listings volume. Michael and his team completed 2003 by being honored with nearly every Prudential Select Properties (a firm with over 250 REALTORS) award: #1 Company Wide Team Leader In Sold Volume, Sold Units, Listing Volume & Listing Units, and Office Team Leader in Sales & Listing Volume.

In their second full year, Michael's team has become an industry leader in Lake, Geauga and Cuyahoga counties. In April 2004, Michael's mother Jane joined his team along with fellow John Carroll University graduate and good friend Matthew Canzone also joining the team as Sales Partners. Katie Runyon joined the team to handle the Marketing and Advertising responsibilities and in short order, they set a company sales record for a single month with 33 sales and over $6 million in volume. The Michael Kaim Team had a banner year in 2004! The Team hit another sales record for most units sold for the month of September by selling 27 homes and over $5 million in volume. By year end, the Team hit an all-time record for most units and volume sold in one year. A whopping 173 properties were sold, reaching $32,969,098 in sales volume! From 2005 to present, the Team has averaged over 225 home sales per year, and is ranked as the number one Prudential Real Estate Team in Ohio, selling over 300 homes in 2011 and over 400 in 2012.
