Michael Carroll Real Estate Services
Buying or selling a home can be frustrating, but Central Florida resident Michael Carroll, a licensed Real Estate Agent and CEO of MJC Financial Group, LLC, can help every step of the way.
As Michael enters his fifth year in real estate, he knows how intimidating buying a home can be.
Michael and his team have a great deal of experience with all types of buyers and sellers and work with clients to develop a plan of action to achieve their goals.
Through educating his clients and sharing knowledge from his own experiences, Michael is there for home buyers and home sellers every step of the way. His robust network of professional contacts help with the entire process, ensuring the transaction goes as smooth as possible.
“My goal is to deliver the best experience possible to meet that individual’s or family’s needs,” he says
Michael Carroll grew up in Oviedo, FL and served eight years in the US Air Force. He has also earned Bachelor and Master degrees in Small Business Entrepreneurship and Marketing from DeVry University and University of Phoenix respectively. Michael is a devoted Husband, Father, and a servant at his church and community. He is the Vice President of the Central Florida Business Alliance, as well as CEO of MJC Financial Group, LLC. He started this company with the vision to provide superior service to those who desire to build a legacy through real estate.
He also noted that there is a lot of demand for houses in the area.
“Just like anywhere else, home prices are continually rising, and there are a lot of people moving and wanting to move into Oviedo, Orlando, or other places in Central Florida,” Michael says. “If you are considering a move into Oviedo, Orlando, or anywhere in Central Florida there is something for every price range. On the flip side of that, if you are considering a move, you may be surprised at what your house in Seminole, Orange, Lake, and surrounding counties could sell for, even if it’s been just a few years since buying your home.”
When it comes to listing houses, Michael understands that pricing and presentation are two of the most critical factors in getting an ideal offer in a suitable time frame. He works with clients to create a detailed analysis of their best comparable sales and offers reasonable suggestions of small improvements or tweaks that can be done to improve the appeal of the home.
After coming together on a price, Michael delivers a presentation and presence that garners interest for showings of the home.
“I take a lot of pride in my attention to detail and putting together a beautiful listing for my sellers,” Michael says. “Then, ultimately, I enjoy getting them to the closing table with terms they are happy with.”
Michael also does real estate auctions of homes, farms and commercial property. He said there is no property either too small or too big he won’t do.
He feels the local area is a good one for traditional real estate sales and investing. Michael said it’s a fun business because“there is always something different.” He looks forward to using his real estate experience to help move properties.
Michael honed his customer service skills in the door to door sales world before channeling that experience into real estate. With more than 10 years of high-level customer service experience, he’s a great resource for any current or future homeowner.
There were many challenges that made him think twice about striking out on his own! When he ventured out on my own he was about 25 years old. So he had to get over the stigma of being young and clients thinking that he was inexperienced and not well educated. This is one of the reasons he worked very hard to earn professional designations right out of college.
Another challenge he overcame was the transition from the military to entrepreneurship. While in the military there was a sense of financial security because those checks were going to be deposited every month on the 1st and the 15th. As an entrepreneur, it was a major adjustment to a career where if you do not make a sale your family does not eat.
After he decided to get out of door to door sales, Michael pursued his life and health license, but quickly learned that was not his dream career path.
“Both of those experiences combined gave me the confidence and ability to jump into real estate with both feet,” he says.
“I truly care about the people I work for and believe in providing a professional and personable experience,” Michael adds. “If you’re ever deciding between agents or if you don’t have an agent and you are not sure who to call or where to get started, I would appreciate the opportunity to meet and see what your goals are. The agent you choose to work with matters.Give me a chance to earn your trust and business.”
