Michael Kawochka

Life-long New Yorker and Brooklyn native, Michael Kawochka has had a few careers, all of them successful. Customer service has been the common thread sewing them all together.

Whether as an award winning account executive at NYC’s #1 public relations agency, or as a project manager at the world’s largest pharmaceutical company, Michael has always been a staunch advocate for his clients.

At Pfizer, he managed complex million dollar software projects, delivering strong results on time, while negotiating hundreds of thousands of dollars in cost savings.

At Edelman PR Worldwide, his team won three of the top four industry awards.

Having sat on all sides of the table, Michael brings empathy to both his clients and customers. He has been a landlord and a tenant, as well as buyer and a seller.

When working with Michael, you are buying local expert knowledge in a 4th-generation Greenpointer.

Active in the community, Michael has served on the Greenpoint YMCA Board of Managers since 2003. He is also a member of the New York Technology Council and the Greenpoint Chamber of Commerce, a regular at the North Brooklyn Breakfast Club, guest lecturer at the NY Real Estate Institute, and a past Berry Street Garden volunteer.

He holds a BA with honors from the University at Buffalo, where he double-majored in English and Communication. He earned his MBA in Computer Information Systems at night from Baruch College.

An avid traveller and music lover, Michael stays put most summer weekends in Fire Island. He ranks himself an enthusiastic intermediate at both yoga and volleyball. After business hours, he can usually be found loitering at local favorites Spoonbill & Sugartown Books, Bembe, Dope Jams Record Shop, or the Whirlybird Café.
