Though Michael Schultz may not have decades of experience under his belt, the Kuper Sotheby's Realtor has nonetheless surpassed some pretty impressive goals. He's been named one of the top 25 luxury Realtors by the San Antonio Business Journal, and works tirelessly to provide his clients with up-to-the-minute market knowledge.
A stint working in the construction industry helped Schultz to develop a love of land and luxury homes, which eventually led him to work in the real estate industry. Now he focuses on making each home sale or purchase an easy, relaxing, and rewarding experience for his clients.
Schultz sees being a Realtor as an opportunity to bring overwhelming happiness to the people he works with, and one of the ways he accomplishes that is by understands that moving doesn't end at closing. He's always on hand to help his clients — in any way he can — make a seamless transition into the newest chapter in their lives.
We chatted with Schultz to find out more about his work and what drives him.
CultureMap: What’s one piece of advice you’d give to people looking for their dream home?
Michael Schultz: Follow your gut instinct. We can make all the checklists we want, but until you spend some time in that home and get to know it intimately, you won't know if it's the home for you.
CM: And advice to those who are selling?
MS: If you take the time to prepare — like making your home look amazing for photos and video — you will reap the benefits. Pricing also plays a big role, because if we prepare the home correctly and price it right, we're likely to sell your home quickly and for a higher price.
CM: Sum up San Antonio in three words.
MS: Guac is extra. Just kidding! Diverse. Welcoming. Inspiring.
CM: What do you consider your "special skill”?
MS: Hands down, it's negotiating. I can find that deal or that dream home, but when it comes down to it I have been blessed with the skills to negotiate the deal like an art form.
CM: What's one thing people might not know about you?
MS: I am running for Man of the Year for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to raise money for blood cancer research. And in the sixth grade I wrote, produced, and did vocals for a rap album. It was fire.
