Get to Know Michael Dooley

As a Florida native I have a unique perspective when it comes to living in what I call paradise. In 1975 I moved to Hobe Sound, from Hollywood, Fl. after graduating from McArthur High School in 1970. In 1977 I started in the professsion of real estate and have been active since. Practically all of my real estate experience has been centralized in south Martin County, Hobe Sound specifically. As a Broker, I have operated and managed real estrate ofices since 1984.

In 2006 I held the positon of Florida Association President. At that time we had a membership of 180,000 and an annual budget of 20 million. As an active member in volunteer work with the Florida Realtors over 30 years, I have the "edge" with respect to cutting edge technology and real knowledge concerning current real estate issues.

My personal passion is blue water deep sea fishing and free diving. I frequent the Bahamas every summer with my wife Terry.


With over 41 years of real estate experience in Jupiter Island, Hobe Sound, Stuart and surrounding areas of Martin County, I am able to accomodate the most sophisticated real estate transactions.

I have developed strip centers, performed many 1031 Starker Exchanges, handle extensive property management, and managed many real estate agents.

My primary expertise is commercial property sales. This year I listed and sold a 15,000 sq. ft commercial center in South Stuart, a 3000 sq. ft. commercial building in downtown Hobe Sound and have effected a 4 way Starker 1031 tax deferred exchange (4 properties into one).  All these transactions have occurred in Hobe Sound and Stuart. Bottom line: you need to contact me when you are ready willing and able to acquire investment properties in Martin, St. Lucie and Palm Beach counties.



Having lived in Hobe Sound for over 35 years, I have a unique perspective of our community. Please give a call with any real estate question you may have, I'll try my best to answer it for you.
