Those who have purchased or sold a home with him know that Saverio Montalto was meant to work in the real estate industry.
Montalto, 36, grew up a third generation cement mason and licensed contractor. His love for the work and region kept him in metro Detroit, but the unpredictable and fluctuating climate in Michigan ultimately encouraged his transition from the luxury construction to luxury real estate business.
“Luxury can mean a $3 million gated residence in Bloomfield Hills or a starter condo in downtown Detroit,” he said. “I work with clients looking to buy their first starter home, or settle into their forever home.”
Over the past 4 years Montalto has earned the reputation of a top, trusted real estate professional in the metro Detroit area. He specializes in working with clientele from his own residence in Detroit, as well as those properties throughout the Woodward Corridor in Wayne and Oakland counties.
Montalto works in a bright, airy office at Max Broock Realtors along Old Woodward Ave. in downtown Birmingham, with a satellite office in Ferndale and another in Detroit coming soon. He’s always centrally located for his clients, and in touch with his industry.
“My knowledge of homes – inside and out – understanding realistic costs for necessary improvements and my expertise in construction have proven invaluable to clients as they search for a home, or look to sell their current one,” he said.
Montalto has lived or worked and been invested in the city of Detroit for more than 15 years. His work is reflective of his lifestyle. Montalto and wife Kerry Doman are raising their 2-year-old son in the city. Their home lies in the coveted Mies Van Der Rohe-designed community. Doman is equally invested in the city, having established trusted resources like After 5 Detroit for young professionals and more recently, Little Guide Detroit, for Metro Detroit families.
Being a Detroiter, Montalto has an edge when it comes to staying informed about listings, neighborhood development projects or new opportunities for his clients. The real
estate business is not simply a job for him. It’s a part of his life he’s openly passionate about.
“Communication is a top priority for me,” he said. “I am proud to work with my clients and communicate as quickly as possible. Buying or selling a house is a big decision. I recognize that. I am here to assist in any way. I live downtown and I understand the Detroit market. I work any hours that benefit my clients – no matter the day or time. No phone call or email will go unanswered.”
His strong work ethic is evident. Clients come in with more background on the industry than ever – thanks to online resources like Zillow. Still, web sites are no replacement for the expertise of an industry professional when making a decision to buy or sell a home. “You need a guide to lead you in the right direction,” he explained.
Montalto stays vigilantly up-to-date when it comes to changes in the market, and in establishing lasting relationships with his clientele. Before he even asks a prospective
client what he or she is searching for, Montalto takes time to understand who they are, so he can find the perfect match for their needs.
He asks questions like: “What is your life like? How far do you want to commute? What do you like to do?” Not all realtors take such a personal approach. It’s a first step toward a successful outcome.
“I really, truly enjoy working with people from all walks of life,” he said. “That is what is most rewarding to me. Building those relationships is more important than any purchase or sale.”
As much time as Montalto puts into his profession each day, he is as dedicated to his roles as a husband and a father. To him, living in Detroit also means spending time on the
Detroit RiverWalk, riding bikes and visiting the DNR Outdoor Adventure Center – as a family. He treasures the amenities found just outside his own home – and is eager to share them with clients and friends.
“The Detroit market has grown exponentially over the past few years,” he said. “To see it grow, and to see so many people interested in calling it their home is exciting. I’m just
honored to be part of their move.”
