Michael Taft is intrinsically part of the Washington D.C. community. Having moved to D.C. at the age of 6 months, he considers himself a native Washingtonian. Michael still resides in D.C., in the Georgetown/Glover Park area. As a product of local area schools and a Georgetown resident, he feels that he has a real grasp of the pulse of D.C. and, in particular, the NEW growth areas in the City. Michael knows the schools, the recreational outlets, the best stores and restaurants, even local doctors and dentists. "The important thing to me is the genuine interest I have in making people feel comfortable in their surroundings and new environment". " Over the last couple years I have been a witness to amazing transformation in this City. We now have more choices for living, recreation and retail then we have ever had". My hope is that I can find you a place to enjoy for a long period of time". Prior experiences in Development, Fundraising and Public Relations all contribute to my self expectations as a realtor and how I can best help you...however it also gives me great insight into the "art of the deal". With an extensive background in golf and golf marketing, Michael has developed a sense of creative problem solving. "Golf is the ultimate in creating answers to difficulties...not every shot is straight forward, you have to use your talent and creativity to achieve your goals of getting up and down in as few strokes as possible. I see this as a metaphor for business and life. Helping clients with focus and creativity."
