From newspaper journalist to radio talk show host, Michael Pallares’s career path over the past 30 years has been varied to say the least. Yet one thread throughout his professional history has remained unwavering: his ability to communicate clearly, honestly and consistently with his audience and clients. Born in Caracas and raised in Florida, Michael’s last relocation was from Atlanta to Boston in 1987 when he became an executive with Talbot’s Catalog Development Group.
Since then he has worked in the field of Creative Services Management for various firms including his last corporate placement as Vice President of Creative Services for MFS Investment Management in Back Bay. His passion for writing and marketing, combined with his entrepreneurial spirit, ultimately led him back to writing (as a freelancer for various publications) and into the world of broadcasting as host of two radio and cable access programs: “Open House” and “The Living Room.”
In 2003 he was persuaded to try his hand at real estate sales in order to combine his marketing savvy and personable nature in an entirely new field. He worked for seven years at Metro Realty Corp. in Brookline in his role as both a Realtor and the agency’s Sales and Marketing Manager just prior to joining Hammond Residential in 2010 and most recently (2012) becoming a Senior Sales Associate & Certified Relocation Specialist with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Jamaica Plain (Boston).
As an extension of his desire to connect with his community, Michael has also previously served as a board member for Community Care Services, one of the largest non-profit service agencies in Massachusetts, as well as becoming a Certified Berlitz Language Instructor in 2009. He’s also a member of the National Association of Realtors; the Greater Boston Real Estate Board; the National Association of Gay & Lesbian Real Estate Professionals; and, the Massachusetts Association of Realtors.
