Mike Salkin is not your typical Realtor. In addition to selling or managing real estate for over 20 years in the Omaha Nebraska area he has worked in the mortgage industry, securities industry, studied law and is well versed in construction sciences.
Through his experience in mortgage lending Mike has an understanding of the mortgage lending process that helps buyers as well as sellers deal with the numerous mortgage issues that can affect the viability of a transaction. By thinking outside of the box, he has saved transactions that otherwise would have been doomed.
Mike's experience managing portfolios for an investment advisory firm and managing a branch office for a securities broker dealer gives him rare insight into the macro and micro economic factors that affect real estate investment. Our homes are often the largest investment most of us ever make, so it makes sense to treat them as one and use a Realtor that understands that.
The understanding of contract law is critical in real estate transactions. The omission or misplacement of just one word can change the meaning of a contract and put the party making the error in jeopardy. Having an agent that understands contract law is definitely an advantage.
Mike's strong understanding of construction sciences has helped many sellers negotiate favorably through the inspection process. He can help buyers and sellers understand problems and what it takes to fix them. Mike's access to discount contractors through his property management business saves sellers money in getting agreed upon repairs completed.
Mike is also active in the community. He was a long term president of his HOA and was instrumental in the writing and passage of local legislation working with the city council and various state legislators.
Mike's long term and broad-based experience has made him one of the toughest negotiators in the business. Few agents can match his qualifications. He has honed his skills in "squeezing" every last dollar out of a transaction for his clients. Most of all, Mike believes in value, which translates into great service and low, low fees for his clients. No wonder Mike sells so many homes. Put Mike's experience and expertise to work for you!
