Born and raised in Beverly Hills, Michael Sutton knows LA’s high-end luxury real estate market and the prominent members that make up its prestigious community. Between the core well to do families he grew up with, to the socialite, celebrity, high-net worth friends he socializes with, to the vast professional contacts in the entertainment business he's worked with, Michael's Rolodex is second to none.
For many years, Michael worked as a successful restaurateur and is still considered one of the best nightclub promotion and marketing men turned owner operators in the city. It’s where he developed strengths that he would later apply to real estate. Integral to his food and beverage success, Michael was able to identify undervalued properties, often in emerging parts of the city, early on enough to then watch the surrounding areas catch up to his visionary lead (a la Hollywood circa 1999).
Over the course of his career, Michael has operated successful businesses and employed over one thousand people. He's learned how to manage people and difficult situations. He understands hospitality and decorum and is the consummate tactful gentleman focused on advantageously closing deals. At The Beverly Hills Estates, Michael plans to add value to an already advanced marketing approach, something that Michael intends to capitalize on, enhance, elevate and exploit when combined with his niche brand marketing background. It's one of the main reasons Michael chose to join forces with his long time friends Branden and Rayni Williams. His clients can rest assured that with Michael and The Beverly Hills Estates' global brand they will get maximum exposure when marketing a listing, which will in turn translates into top offers and closing prices for his buying clients. His journey to date has formulated a mantra that prides itself on being as prepared and strong as the favorite in a race, but as tenacious, hustling, hungry, unassuming and humble as the underdog, so as to never rest on past laurels and continue to perpetuate success.
When not buying and selling real estate, this former Daytime Emmy nominated actor on Disney ABCs General Hospital and his beautiful and successful clothing designer wife Kristina of “Lakris Brand” love hiking in the canyons with their dog Coco. Michael is the founding member of the Motion Picture and Television Fund, a Paladec honorary award recipient for his African global initiatives, a founding board member of Beverly Hills Athletic Alumni Association’s “The Joe Sutton scholarship fund.”
