About Michael Franklin

Mike Franklin is a Licensed Real Estate Broker and Internet marketing specialist for unique Upstate New York properties. He has more than twenty years experience as an Information Technology professional in support of the real estate industry. Mike worked for more than five years as a unique property specialist with Sotheby's International Realty. He now runs his own Real Estate Brokerage firm Franklin Ruttan which specializes in unique properties and includes historicals and waterfront. Mike utilizes his computer and Internet skills to present and promote unique upstate properties in detail through the Internet to Down-state, out-of-state and international buyers. Mike leverages national and international media and venues to fuel social media and pool traffic to his detailed property presentations. He supplements those venues with custom marketing tailored specifically to the property. Mike's properties have been featured in most major media including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Architectural Digest, Bloomberg Business Week, Time, Forbes, Fortune, and foreign media, etc. He believes unique properties require their own Internet identity and that they should not be merely listed in a database obscured by thousands of other traditional listings. Mike is an expert in social media and Internet remarketing techniques. He believes each property requires its own Internet domain-based presentation and strives to put forth a marketing effort that is consistent with the elaborate nature of his properties. Mike strongly feels that unique properties should be marketed, not simply listed, and he strives to supplement traditional methods with effort and technique consistent with the magnitude of the property. Franklin Ruttan exclusively lists properties, but also co-lists properties with brokers all over upstate new York to assist traditional brokers with the marketing of their unique listings to out of area buyers. In addition to traditional listing and co-listing techniques, Franklin Ruttan also executes sealed bid auctions.
