Selling Your Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who markets your home, knows how to find the right buyer, negotiate on your behalf, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I take care of everything you need, from start to close.

Timing Is Everything
Whether you are looking for a new home or thinking about selling your current home, call me today. I will put my expertise to work to provide you guidance and advice on what you need to know to make the best possible decision for your real estate needs.

"Michael Kaplan assisted me twice in my recent home purchases in Glen Rock and in Hawthorne NJ, and I must say, I was extremely satisfied! The home buying process, because of new lending guidelines and the multi-tenant home factor, made my transaction fairly complex. Michael went above and beyond! At the end of the day, he managed the process smoothly, and I am now a very happy homeowner. I would highly recommend Michael to anyone looking for an agent that will stick with you through the whole process and look out for your best interests."

  -Malcolm Smith, Client

"Mike Kaplan is the very best realtor we have ever used. He far exceeded our expectations. We found him to be punctual, professional, patient and extremely responsive. When purchasing our home in Skyline Lakes, Ringwood, we encountered some unresolved issues. Mike worked tirelessly to get them resolved. He stayed in touch and kept us informed of everything. He made us feel like we were part of a team. We successfully closed on our home, thanks to Mike. We would highly recommend him as your next real estate agent."
