Thanks for visting my Profile!
I was born and raised in Edmonton. I attended the University of Alberta to complete a Bachelors of Commerce degree, then went on to complete many courses including Levels 1 and 2 of the Chartered Financial Analyst Program , the Professional Financial Planning Course, the Canadian Securities Course, and obtained my licensing for options and derivatives.
After working as a stockbroker for a few years, I decided my passion and heart are in the real estate business. After deciding to pursue a career in commercial and residential real estate sales, I obtained my real estate licence in 2006. My real estate career quickly took off, and shortly after entering the business I ranked in the top 5% of sales on the Edmonton Real Estate Board. From there I've consistently ranked in the top 5% of sales on the Edmonton Real Estate Board.
Due to my strong business foundation and unrelenting work ethic I achieved the Re/Max Hall of Fame designation in 2008, and the Re/Max Lifetime Achievement Award in 2014. Through the years I've developed an exclusive sales and marketing system that produces the sales and results my clients are looking for. I'm an expert negotiator and a sales specialist whose passion is working with sellers to get them the most amount of money in the quickest amount of time.
I've developed an experienced sales and marketing team where every member plays a very important role in our client's success. Each member is a specialist in their respective area and everyone is geared towards the common goal of providing our clients with the service and results they are looking for. When you hire me, you get not only me, but the focus, care, and attention of my entire team.
In 2013, I founded, a development company focused on luxury infill development in Edmonton. I've completed all the required courses through the Professional Home Builders Institute to acheive the Master Builder Designation. We were selected as a top 3 finalist for the 2015 Canadian Home Builders Awards of Excellence. Building in the luxury market requires a strong focus on the details, and I've used my experience in the real estate market to push the boundaries and ensure the "wow" factor is achieved in every home. And, in turn, this experience with home construction and quality makes me a better REALTOR®.
When I'm not working, I love to spend time with my two children. I'm a strong supporter of local charities including the Children’s Miracle Network, and I'm a founding member of the Raising Dough charity, formed with the purpose of organizing and promoting events which raise funds for meaningful local causes.
Awesome job will recommend to friends and family . And they did everything so quickly. And I want to appreciate Holly for her all the hardwork. Thanks for accommodating the viewing multiple times - ADARSH SURESH
Michael, from the get-go has been very professional along with his whole team, and I was quite impressed with the advertising and the amount of showings I was able to receive which resulted in the sale of my home, which is what we all want. Definitely recommend and commend the professionalism, quick communication and service . - Nelson Teixeira
Reply: Thanks Nelson, congratulations with the sale!

Reply: Thanks guys, congratulations on the sale and enjoy B.C!
Michael and his team were very professional from day one. Jocelyne was in charge of the listing of my townhouse, and she was a delight to work with. She is not just professional, but reliable, knowledgeable and very polite. I had initially listed my home with another Realtor for 3 months with no success, and had a lot of mistakes and found her to be very unprofessional. As soon as I had Michael’s team working for me, I could immediately tell the difference in their level of professionalism. My house Sold in a matter of weeks after it was listed with them. They were luxury all the way!!! I recommend them to anyone looking for top Realtors in Edmonton, AB. You will not be disappointed. - Ana Gomes
Reply: Thanks for the trust Ana, we were happy to help! Congratulations on the sale.

Michael and his team had quite the handful to deal with when selling my house, a nightmare tenant situation, but with their guidance and patience, I was able to list and sell rapidly. Very thankful for their help. - Angus Dawson Hunt
Reply: Thanks Angus, glad we were able to help get this done. Good team work!
We had trouble selling before and had been on the market for over a year with several other Realtors, but once we listed with Mike, our house sold right away! He was extremely professional, and informative, and helped make the process so easy. We would definitely recommend him to anyone! - Teresa Pucci
Reply: Thanks guys, congrats on the Sale!
This will be my second review after working with Michael and his team buying another investment property. I must say Michael is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to the Edmonton real estate market and trends. No matter if you are buying/selling or what your price point is, Michael can help you close the deal without any concerns. He has great negotiating skills and hence the reason why he’s one of the top realtors in Edmonton. One of my first criteria as an investor is to act fast when I see a good deal in the market. Therefore, I need a realtor who is seasoned and I can trust to help me along. Someone who can give me good timely advice and also help me act quickly. In real estate timing is everything. In my latest purchase, Michael made sure my wife and I were one of the first people to get the viewing and then helped me through the entire process of closing the deal without any barriers. Thanks Michael for having my back and looking forward to working with you again in the future! - Erfan Tabarsi
Reply: Thanks Erfan and family! Always a pleasure to help. It's quite the impressive rental portfolio you are building.
We could not be happier with the professional service that Mike Pavone and his team provided our family. They made the purchase of our new house and sale of our old house a seamless and smooth transaction. Mike was very responsive and helpful with many questions that we had during this process. He exemplifies a very experienced, top grade executive real estate agent. He maintained great communication which was very much appreciated on our part. We would have no hesitation to recommend Mike and his team to anyone looking for a real estate agent who can help with the purchase or sale of a property. Thank you very much to the Michael Pavone Real Estate Team! - Mark Leszczewski
Reply: Thanks Mark and family! It was an absolute pleasure to be able to help and we hope you're enjoying your new Acerage

Micheals knowledge of central edmonton real estate is impressive. His team provided detailed price analysis, home staging, and strategic/targeted marketing in a timely fashion as the real estate market was changing due to increased interest rates. Communication was efficient and timely. His team was available to prepare our house for showings while we were away, which was greatly appreciated. Highly recommend! - Caroline Gendron
Reply: Thanks Caroline, it was a pleasure to help sell such a beautiful home listed for $2.845M in Windsor Park. Thanks for the trust in our team and enjoy your new adventure ahead!.
My property was not easy to sell but Michael always kept his word. He is very knowledgeable and professional. His assistant Alexis was also great to deal with throughout the process and always available to respond to questions or concerns. I recommend Michael to anyone looking for a real estate agent in the Edmonton area. - Filipe

Reply: Thanks John, such a stunning home you purchased - Congrats!
My experience with Micheal was much different than the other reviews It all started out well after I contacted him and he promptly came to see my home which is a stunning 1 year old infill which also got alot of comments on his instagram ...probably one to the nicer homes he listed recently Micheal is more about getting the listing . He makes decisions quickly and maybe not always the right decision or advice . He has built a small army around him that do most of the work while Micheal will work hard at first he then will sit back and not do much . My home turned into a nitemare . First listed in the fall of 2021 , it should of sold fairly quickly but the market was still suffering a bit . We listed in a reasonable price and after a 2-3 weeks Micheal wanted me to reduce . Micheal proceeded to make up negatives about the home trying to get me to think we should reduce ... I didn't like that as I said the home is stunning both in and out ..a very modern trendy infill ..take a look on his instagram After I think it was 3 weeks we got a offer that I did not like . It was an offer subject to sale of a condo with a $1200 /strata fee attached . Micheal tried hard to convince me to take it but I really didn't want to but accepted that perhaps I should listen to Micheal . Almost 4 months later I was still tied to this terrible contract . The seller struggled to get anyone to buy it and it tied my home up from selling to others as I was committed ...it was a huge mistake taking Micheals advice . He basically just wanted the number and I did not hear much from Micheal over those months but I did reach out to him for updates I asked Micheal if he would continue showing my home during this time under contract and Micheal relied "yes " but he never did .In the almost 4 months I had no one view it and Micheal ,when questioned ,said " no one is interested " Micheal was slow to respond to my inquiries at times. Sometimes Micheal would take a day....I could see he viewed what I wrote and basically he ignored me I felt . Finally months passed and I was able to get out of the contract when the buyer did not sell their home .... I called it right from the start that the buyer was not going to be able to sell a condo with that large of a strata fee . Micheal felt otherwise and he was wrong Funny thing is when the contract ended with this buyer immediately showings started happening again ...I mean like immediately ! Micheal sat on it for those 4 months and did nothing it felt like .I felt Micheal will tell you what you want to hear but it goes nowhere One thing I will say is if Micheal comes to you with an offer subject to sale do not do it no matter what or you will end up like I did ! Once my contract ended with this buyer , the buyers started coming again but the original buyer came back and said " I have an offer on my condo " and they wanted to sign an agreement again . Micheal advised it was good and again I took his advice and again it turned into a nitemare and set me back another month because the buyer of the condo turned out to have problems and there I was again in the same mess . Finally the contract came to the end and Micheal wanted me to extended it to give the potential buyer more time and I replied NO !!! Micheal wasn't happy about that and by this time I had had enough . I wasted so much time taking Micheal's advice and it cost me Once I ended it Micheal really wasn't happy and there was little communication but Micheal asked me to reduce my price .... I was on the market way longer than I ever should have been from a stunning home in Glenora ...it was ridiculous ! I reduced my price and shouldn't have . Micheal did not tell me the market had suddenly changed and prices were climbing ...he just wanted to unload my home because it was listed far too long again because of his bad advice which was just so he could show it had an offer and look good .... it was a poor offer I reduced my price reluctantly but the calls were already coming in to view and it sold to the first person in within hours ... I also had another person circling the block wanting to view it . Micheal told me the offer ...he didn't work hard to negotiate he just said its better than the condo offer . There was the other person that circled the block that was also calling his office to view my home knowing it had an offer and Micheal came up with this story that they weren't good buyers or something like that . Micheal didn't want to show it to them and wanted me to be happy with this offer . I didn't like that . I accepted the offer but had I let the other person view I more than likely could of done better Once the contract was signed Micheal disappeared . He left me with his assistant , a jr realtor who was learning and really didn't know what areas to take me . The 2 of them just basically let me scroll the MLS and find my own choices and then let them know and the jr realtor would show it to me ...Micheal had moved on and left me to his assistant and I didn't like that I texted him and asked him " are you still helping me ? " Eventually he responded back " I"m always here to help you " I terminated Micheal at this point because I was completed frustrated and fed up This sale took so long and it shouldn't have !! After the sale i landed in a spring market of outright craziness . Overbidding , homes sold before they even got listed and I was going to run out of time . I found a new realtor that was absolutely amazing . This person worked their butt off which was a complete change from Micheal . The home I ended up with was perfect and suited my lifestyle . Micheal's assistant struggled to find homes for me and for some reason sent me homes that I would never even consider . You would think by viewing my personal home you'd have a pretty good idea of what I would consider but no I was just being sent anything ...not sure she even looked at what she was sending at the start I'm glad alot of you were successful with Micheal but for me never again ... - John Siderifn
Reply: Hi John, thank you for your feedback although it's not an accurate description of what happened - and clearly not inline with the experience of any of our other clients. The red flags were up for us right away from our first meeting. You complained about your builder, your lawyer, your employer, your co-workers, your warranty company, your contractors, your alarm service provider, and the list goes on... When everyone around you seems to be the problem, maybe its time for some self reflection and the problem comes from within...
We just sold our home in Crestwood with Michael and we’re very pleased with his level of professionalism and service. He kept us well informed and provided valuable advice to get our house sold. He and his team really kept the marketing and advertising on pace to help drive interest. We’ll hire him again . - Barbara Linttell

Michael was very professional and showed me prices of comparable houses in the neighbourhood.He made me feel comfortable in coming to establish a moderate asking price that would move the house in a reasonable time.This definitely was in the ball park as the house was shown many times and sold on the second day.I definitely recommend Michael to anyone who is looking to sell their home at a fair price and quickly. - Gordon Lennie

My husband and I have bought and sold many properties over the past few decades. Michael Pavone is by far the most skilled agent we have worked with. Upon meeting with him it was clear he had done his homework and came more prepared than other agents we interviewed. In making the decision on the listing price Michael carefully listened to us, but did not only tell us what we wanted to hear regarding our home's value. In the end the listing price was spot-on as we got an offer within 8 days of listing. Michael is very motivated, a good collaborator, and most of all confident. And our confidence in him was well founded. As the condition removal date approached (and the stress & anxiety increased) Michael assuaged our fears and worked tirelessly behind the scenes to manage the final negotiations. This is when we knew we'd hired the best agent for job. We are so pleased with the timely sale of our house and would hire Michael again without hesitation. - Joni Fisher-Canham & Dr. Hal Canham
Reply: Thanks guys for those very kinds words. It was a pleasure to help, and I look forward to selling the next one! Enjoy your journey to BC.
I was very pleased with Michael Pavone. I did not think we were going to sell the house that fast but within a week or two of posting it, the house was sold. I thought that he even got us a good price for the house. I thought it would be a lower amount than we actually got for the house. I would highly recommend him to anyone. I would definitely use his services again for selling another house or even buying a house. - Florence chute
Reply: Thanks Flo, it was an absolute please to help!
Fabulous, absolutely professional, straight forward response to all my concerns or requests for advice. I strongly recommend Michael who is thinking of selling. Michael lists my house at the worst timing, but he strives coolly, no excuses and came out with innovative selling strategy and tremendous amount of marketing, e.g.: mailing of brochures every month until sold, wide advertisement, video and take great of home. He even have a Client Care Manager who is so caring and so polite. Michael is best realtor I have met so far. - Daniel Quek
Reply: Thanks Daniel for those very kind words. We are very grateful for the opportunity to have helped, and it was great to work with you and Winnie.
Michael was a pleasure to deal with. He had a great can-do attitude, was easy to work with and was always interested in and responsive to our suggestions. Marketing was key to us as we were selling an unusual home. Michael created an attractive brochure exclusive for our house and distributed it to the homes in the neighbourhoods nearby. He has a regular Market Report that is dropped on an ongoing basis to the mailboxes in several neighbourhoods close to our house. He featured our home repeatedly in his report. He followed by further repeated brochure drops to mailboxes. Ultimately these were the efforts that resulted in our property being noticed. Michael also did not hesitate to host several open houses. He didn't hesitate to incur the marketing costs. Carol and the office staff were professional and a pleasure to deal with. Overall Michael was responsive, effective and a pleasure to work with. - Maria and Andrew Cathcart
Reply: It was a pleasure to work with you guys and help you sell your home in Crestwood! Enjoy your new journey in BC and keep in touch!
Michael gave us thorough advice on how to prepare our home for photos and viewings. He was clear in his explanations of the selling process and responsive to our wishes. Michael marketed our home well and generated a lot of interest within one week, and the property sold over asking. It was a pleasure to have Michael sell our home. - Barton
Reply: Thanks Barton and Loretta it was such a pleasure to help you guys. Enjoy your journey to Victoria. All the best!
