A professional with over 15 years experience in luxury residential real estate, Michael Selbst serves Boston and the North Shore.  His client-driven focus and intense work ethic has earned him a loyal following; virtually all new clients come from referrals from existing clients.  He tends to be thorough, opinionated, meticulous and competitive, which pairs well with his detailed recall/memory of every property he has ever visited.

 

Michael is especially quantitatively oriented, using market data to drive market valuations on properties for both buyers and sellers. He uses all the latest internet and social media marketing tools as well as leverages all the marketing and public relations support Sotheby’s International Realty has to offer to expose properties to the widest range of qualified buyers. 

 

Prior to entering real estate as a professional, Michael worked in various marketing positions for Scudder Kemper Investments, Marsh McLennon Capital, and Bank of Boston. Michael has restored 4 antique houses and is now working on his fifth.   He has a broad and deep understanding of historic architecture, construction methods, and house systems.

 

He is a double graduate of Cornell University with a Bachelor of Economics and a Master of Business Administration.    He resides in Salem Massachusetts with his husband Brad and their dog Jetsan and is very involved in local organizations. He is currently serving his third term on the board of Hamilton Hall, currently as President of the Board. The past 2 years proved very challenging for the organization; Michael successfully restructured expenses and found new avenues of fundraising and programming which allowed the organization to proceed through 2021-22 with a minimal reduction in financial position. He also serves on the board of Historic Salem as well as Chestnut Street Association and for fun, organizes a roving pop-up cocktail party held on the 3rd Tuesday of every month.
