More about Michael Isaac in his own words:
Q: What are you most passionate about in real estate?
A: I’m passionate about finding good deals and beautiful homes for my clients. I particularly love working with clients who know what they want. The architecture of a home is what makes it so special – and I love it when I can help my clients hone in on what they really like.
Q: What’s your favorite residential architectural style and why?
A: I am a modern architecture devotee – the more industrial, the better! Homes with clean simple lines and open floor plans just make sense for our modern lifestyles and our amazing OC climate.
Q: Where do you live now and why do you love it?
A: I am lucky enough to live in Newport Beach. I particularly love the combination of its suburban feel and outdoorsy beach culture. With its family-friendly vibe, miles of sandy beaches, parks, Balboa Island and world-class shopping, it’s a great environment to raise up our kids.
Q: What excited you most about joining Nook?
A: I was really attracted to the support Nook gives their agents. The involvement of the founders and executive team in the day-to-day running of the business and the experience that they bring is rare. Most importantly though, I am drawn to Nook’s approach to real estate. Everyone else out there is pretty similar – but Nook has created a unique niche of curated homes and has highlighted how important lifestyle is when purchasing a home. It’s a distinctive approach that just makes sense and it’s something I’m excited to be a part of.
