    Satisfaction Rating An agent's star rating is the average of all the ratings of their service.
    My goal in real estate is to provide my clients with trustworthy advice on one of the biggest decisions they will make whether buying or selling their home. My name is Michael Taboada, and I have lived on this beautiful beach since 2007. I worked in Corolla at Mike Dianna's Grill Room for the past decade as one of their managers. When Covid hit, it opened my eyes! I was ready for a change that led to my transition from the restaurant industry to real estate. I am new to the field but my hard work and dedication to my clients will be apparent. I will always be honest and do right by them. Whether it's listing your home and trying to get its highest value or buying a home or investment property to fit your exact needs. I will be understanding and acknowledge what is best for what you are looking to achieve.

    I am originally from Brooklyn, NY, where many of my family still reside. I love visiting the city and miss the food; however, I don't miss living there. I lived in the Poconos for a while after Brooklyn and graduated from East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania in '07 with my Bachelor's Degree in sociology and criminal justice. From there, I ended up here in the Outer Banks. The main reason why I chose to move here was that I fell in love with surfing, the uniqueness of the Outer Banks, its beaches, and my friends, but I stayed because of the wonderful people. The people in this area are like no other, and they have shown me throughout the years, time and again, what a community should be. They take care of each other and support one another in times of need. Not only have I chosen to live here, I decided to raise my family here, and I can't imagine myself anywhere else.

    I am a huge sports fan! I follow the New York Giants, New York Rangers, the Yankees, and Michigan football and love attending games whenever possible. In other words, I BLEED BLUE! So choosing Coldwell Banker only seemed fitting. Let me show you what I can do for you.

    Working with Michael was a dream! From the minute I called him he was on top of it. With the market moving so fast as it is, so was Michael! He never missed a beat. I was under contract in less than 24 hours!!! Talk about hustling. He will def be the first person I call when this opportunity comes my way again. Professional, responsive, knowledgeable and efficient. That's what I needed and he delivered on all levels. Thanks again Michael! We will be in touch my friend.
    Teresa gave Michael 4 stars out of 5
    We had the pleasure of working with Mike as we searched for a lot to build our future beach home. Mike was very communicative and followed up on items. Given this was the first time we were buying a piece of land for future development, Mike did a great job of presenting information that was new to us as land buyers - always preparing us for the next steps. No drama no trauma. Mike is easy going and I look forward to seeing him the next visit to the OBX.

    It was my pleasure working with you and Brian. Thank you both for trusting me through the entire buying process. I can't wait to see your new beach home when it's built. Know I am always here if you need anything!
    Roy gave Michael 5 stars out of 5
    Michael was very accommodating due to our distance from our primary residence. This purchase was a second home/rental therefore he ran up and down the road for us several times to FaceTime us during the initial offer and the walkthrough which was a great help. Any questions we had he was always available and found the correct answers. We totally enjoyed our experience with Michael and would look forward to working with him in the future. So now we consider him more than a realtor, but a new friend.

    Thank you Eddie and Barbara for trusting me every step of the way. It was a real pleasure working with you both and couldn't be happier for you. Looking forward to spending some time on the beach!

    Mike was an incredible wealth of knowledge of the market and area for me as a buyer . His motivation to connect with his clients and help them through the buying and negotiation process is evident. I cant imagine working with any other broker .

    How To Create An Inviting Laundry Room

    We can all agree that doing laundry is probably not the way you want to spend the day off. This disdain may even make your laundry room one of your least favorite rooms in your house. However, just because laundry can be an arduous task doesn't mean your laundry room has to be an unwelcoming, dark space full of clutter. In fact, a well-organized space can actually make you feel more focused and productive. A bright, clean space can even put you in a better headspace to complete your least favori...
