"Michael Bolla is our real estate broker in NYC. He has represented us on more than one occasion and proven to be an extremely qualified and knowledgeable real estate broker in Manhattan. His grasp of the Manhattan market is something we value and respect. He has been extremely professional and pleasant in his manner. We recommend Mr. Bolla as a trustworthy real estate professional in NY." - Pauletta and Denzel Washington

Michael Bolla is amazing. He has represented both me and my family and is totally committed to both finding and selling the right properties to meet his client's needs. Michael is discrete, analytical and can close a deal like no one I've ever seen! -Zac Posen

"Recently, I had the pleasure of working with real estate broker Michael Bolla on the listing of my employer, Heidi Klum's penthouse apartment. Having already met with several brokers, upon meeting Michael we knew we had found the right broker to list the apartment. Both Heidi and I were immediately reassured by Michael's professionalism, fierce knowledge of the industry and his level of discretion. I believe Michael's well-deserved reputation in the industry is a testament to his expertise and utter professionalism. Heidi and I have both recommended Michael to several associates, and will continue to do so in the future." - Jennifer Love, Assistant to Heidi Klum

“Living in one of Michael’s spaces is truly inspiring. The history he retains. He puts all of his passion and heart into creating true homes.” -Andrew Garfield,

"Michael is the perfect candidate to be chosen as the exclusive broker for 142 Henry Street. From all that he has shared about the property his connection to the fashion and entertainment communities will be invaluable to you in your efforts to market this property. The marketing of this property will require a downtown broker who is offbeat enough to understand how to introduce more mainstream individials considering properties in more established areas to the lower East Side. Michael Bolla is offbeat but very established and well liked. You will find him a pleasure to work with." - Campion A. Platt, AIA

"Michael Bolla was our listing agent for 534 Hudson Street and sold our apartment rather quickly. He made the transaction appear to be seamless and we wouldn't hesitate to give any listing we wanted to sell to Michael and have referred him to all our friends. He doesn't waste time and gets the job done efficiently." - Roseline Glazer, West Village Resident

"I have retained Michael Bolla to handle matters surrounding my real estate in New York and unequivocably recommend him to you. As a Global partner of Deloitte Consulting it is important that the professionals I surround myself with are able to act capably and independently. Michael has been a great asset to me and shown himself to be a professional. He is reliable, efficient, thoughtful and a pleasure to work with. I am certain you will find Michael an invaluable member of your team and his connections priceless." - Susan Gretchko, Global Lead Deloitte Consulting

"We initially marketed our house through one of New York's larger and best known firms for 'mansion town houses', but we were not successful in the difficult market environment that accompanied the recent recessionary period and the aftermath of 9-11. We were referred to Mr. Bolla through a mutual friend, and within two months of his being given the listing, he produced a deal that was acceptable to us. Given the market climate, we feel this was a major accomplishment. Despite the apparently greater marketing resources available through larger firms, we found Mr. Bolla's skills, personal attention and unrelenting energy to be very effective. We can suggest with confidence that Michael is worthy of your serious consideration for a similar project." - Alexandra Champalimaud

"In 1998, as Executor of a large estate, I selected Mr. Bolla to act as broker in the proposed sale of a large town house on East 94th Street which had been owned by the decedent. His competitors in that selection were a number of the largest brokerage firms in New York City, but I felt that Mr. Bolla would give the transaction the hands-on attention that employees of a larger organization were unlikely to provide. As it turned out, the sale was successfully consummated and Mr. Bolla's performance as broker was exemplary in every respect." - Jeremy Nussbaum
