About Michael Graves

Consistently a top producing and record setting broker, Michael has sold more than one billion dollars of real estate in less than seven years. He holds the distinction of closing the highest priced single unit transaction of any Douglas Elliman broker in history and the thirteenth highest priced sale nationwide. Michael is ranked 7th nationwide by the Wall Street Journal for average transaction price and 92nd nationwide for total sales volume. He was featured in the Real Deal's Rising Real Estate Stars under 35. Douglas Elliman's CEO, Dottie Herman, said of Graves in a public statement to The Real Deal, "Michael is the real deal. He's savvy, knowledgeable, and he knows the New York City market inside and out."

Guitarist/composer and Minnesota native Michael Graves burst onto the real estate scene in 2009, shattering price per-square-foot records in luxury buildings citywide. Within two years,he had recorded over $100 million in single-unit resale transactions. Consistently ahead of the curve, Michael specializes in the positioning and marketing of luxury new development and resale. He has broken price per square foot records in Tribeca, West Village, Chelsea, Flatiron, Gramercy Park and beyond. He has sold Penthouses on Central Park West, Park Avenue and in nearly every sought after enclave in Manhattan as well as full floor units in key developments such as One57. 


While marketing property, Michael has achieved top price per-square-foot on more than 80% of his transactions. Media outlets such as The New York Times,The Wall Street Journal, and The Real Deal seek out and feature Michael for his extensive market knowledge and record-breaking transactions. 
Michael credits his razor-sharp marketing and delicate negotiating skills to a lifetime of experience in academics, hospitality, and the fine arts. Previously he served as Sales and Marketing Director for his family's luxury hotel development company, Graves Hospitality, which received top accolades during his tenure such as Travel & Leisure's "World's Best Hotels," ESNY Lumen Award, and "Gold Reserve of Top Hotels" by Conde Nast Traveler.


Michael graduated with highest honors from NYU where he received Masters Degree's in Composition & Theory and Scoring for Film.  His music has been heard round the world and has been performed multiple times at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center to rave reviews. Michael is the recipient of the American Music Center's CAP Award, NYU's Honor Scholar Award and The Founder's Day Award. In his free time Michael enjoys playing guitar, writing music and traveling internationally with his family.
