After choosing a career in real estate in 1990 I had one pressing question to answer. Do I want to be a great sales person or a great servant? Choosing the latter has made all the difference.
Considering each client’s unique needs, wants and circumstances is the key to successfully serving them. Valuing each client regardless of whether they are buying their first home, their dream home or their retirement home is why people who begin the process as clients end the process as friends.
I love what I do and bring a unique skill set into play. Having degrees in Engineering, Biology and Business, has given me more than just broad knowledge base, they allow me to evaluate a home from a technical view which gives my clients the freedom to focus on the subjective aspects of the home (location, style, layout, features, etc) Together, we will find the very best home for you and your family.
On a personal note, I am married to a wonderful lady since 1995, have two step-sons, a beautiful daughter and 3 amazing grandchildren.
Finally and perhaps most importantly, I proudly live and work by the principles of honesty, honor, integrity, humility and faith. I believe those principles are the bedrock of being an effective servant for my clients.
I look forward to assisting you, your friends, family, neighbors and coworkers as I am, as always,
At your service,

One day, after Mr. Michael Johnson, took my wife and myself around for literally four (4) hours, perhaps even more on that day, looking for a house. I was at the point where I myself was saying to him that I thought that he had done enough for that day. We got to a lot in Wake Forest, that both my wife and myself liked. And as we stood there looking around I began speaking to Mr. Johnson, about my financial situation which to be truthful I am not proudful about one bit. Considering my age, and the length of time my wife and I have worked and yet our financial condition sucks, forgive my english grammar. Mr. Johnson, stood there and listened to me rant and rave about this matter, without as much as saying one single word. His eyes full of tears but yet he did not cry. He knew that I was hurt and ashamed of my situation, but not once did he as much as give me an idea that he did not care. I will never as long as I live forget that moment in my life, never. Mr. Johnson, then said to me after I dried my eyes from the tears that I shed there in front of him, he said to me, Oscar, we will do all we can to find you a home, I promise you that. Well, on December 31st. my wife, Carlota Belmo, Mr. Nelson Estrela, of New Penn Financial, Mr. Hamrick, the Attorney, Mr. Michael Johnson and myself Oscar Belmo, were at the table for closing on the home of our dream. Thanks to the effort of so many hard working people and the Grace of God. Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of our heart. We love each and every one of you. God, bless you. May God, bless and keep each and every one of you.
My husband and I first met Michael Johnson, after finding a house we wanted to see in the Raleigh area. We didn't know what to expect or who we were meeting, but I'm glad it was Michael; he was so gentle and patient with me, and I had him going all around the triangle area, I told him what I was looking for and he did his best to take us to the homes that came close to what I wanted, and finally we found the right one. Only about a week later. Thanks Michael, for all the you did and for being there for us, even when you knew we were working with limited funds. Yes! I would recommend him to my family and friends!
