A native New Yorker, Michael was born in the Village and raised on the Upper West Side. He studied Entertainment Marketing at New York University’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study where he earned his BA degree. Michael then went on to work for MTV and Manhattan File magazine in ad sales. In 2001, he got his first taste of real estate by leasing and gut renovating a number of spaces in the Meat Packing District. He opened a trendsetting surf shop on Little West 12th Street and sub-leased the remaining spaces. After selling the shop and the remaining leases, Michael spent three years on Kauai, Hawaii living his dream of surfing every day.
Missing New York, Michael returned and decided to do something that really appealed to him– selling the city he loves. “I love living and working in New York!”. While it’s his job to sell wonderful apartments throughout the city, Michael Sarg considers himself more of a catalyst than a salesman. His clients appreciate that. Michael believes that the right property will speak for itself. “I’m there to enhance and guide someone’s experience.” Michael will custom-tailor his approach to everyone he represents depending on their needs and wants.
Currently residing in Chelsea, Michael takes full advantage of the many things that New York City has to offer. A surfer since age eight, he also likes to get away whenever possible to his family’s second home in the Hamptons.
