A man of unique supportive ideas
Tim Michael is an entrepreneur at heart. He is the co-Founder and CEO of Get.Place, an online accessible marketplace that connects the user to real estate brokers with the desired property listings.

He wanted to change the shortcomings of listing sites, where outdated listings, unresponsive brokers, and bad customer service characterize the customer experience. “There needs to be something done” he said. In result, Get.Place is a real estate marketplace with no listings. The brokers associated with Get.Place are monitored on their proper performance to the clientele and constantly vetted according to the property seekers feedback.
