Studio Four8 | Beautiful Beginnings

Studio Four8 started in Dallas, Texas in 2016.

After a long day of learning and networking at the annual Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Convention, one of us said it out loud: “We should team up and keep this energy going.” 

In that moment, the idea for our real estate partnership was formed and we have been brainstorming, polishing and executing ever since. The excitement for the venture has never waned; in fact, over the last two years we have discovered new and exciting ways that it will benefit not just ourselves but more importantly you – our Clients.

Studio Four8 is different from the real estate teams you may have heard of. For one thing, while our families are dear friends, we are not a family business. For another, we are not lining up behind one distant figurehead who seemingly does all the deals but in fact has little to do with their transactions.

Rather, we are a new kind of collaboration of individuals each with their own unique set of strengths and experiences, working together to share ideas and improve our business.

What does that mean for you?

• You will see more contact from us as your trusted source for all things real estate. We will be regularly sending out these newsletters geared specifically to our Clients, so that you are in touch with what’s happening in the market.

• You will receive more efficient customer service when it comes to all the aspects of a real estate sale, from market analyses, scheduling showings, document retrieval and more.

• You will benefit from our united passion for creating the most cutting-edge marketing programs and concierge-level services for what we like to call the “Exceptional Experience.”

All without losing the relationships that have grown over time between us as individual agent and you as valued Client. What brought us together and makes the partnership so successful is that while each of us have our own style and areas of expertise, we share an absolute commitment to service and trustworthiness that each of you have already come to know.

We’ve got you covered in Michigan’s 48’s.

 Natalie Krieger | Dan Kurylo

We worked with Dan first when looking to rent a house and then for buying our first home. I truly cannot recommend him enough. Dan went above and beyond to advocate for our best interests and if you can believe it, made the home-buying process fun! He is professional, nonjudgemental, honest, knowledgable, and compassionate. In an uncertain time within an even more uncertain and scary housing market, Dan was someone we could trust. I’m an anxious and curious person and Dan could not have been more accommodating of my questions and concerns. He respected my feelings and gave a direct and informative answer each time. We could tell Dan had a genuine interest in how homes were built and real estate laws and his knowledge was invaluable in our search. Coming away from a showing, we were always confident we had a good idea of the condition of the home and what we needed to consider. It’s also worth noting that he’s just a cool guy overall! He’s super friendly and we happened to share several interests so it was nice to chat from time to time. If you’re looking for a real estate agent, you can go ahead and stop your search here and give Dan Kurylo a call : )

Katie Evenden | Dan Kurylo

Dan worked with us to find a home while we were living out of state. He made the entire process not only easy, but enjoyable. He was super efficient with the limited amount of time we had to do in-person showings. Before we ever met him in person he was able to pinpoint our style and exactly which properties we would like, and we trusted him and his advice and opinions completely. If you’re looking for a realtor, Dan is one of the best!

Pha Thaprawat | Dan Kurylo

As first-time homebuyers, we really needed an agent to help us through every step of the process. Dan was more than ready to guide us through our search and eventual purchase. He was punctual, responsive, and all-around a wonderful person to work with! His diligence and data-driven knowledge was useful to help us understand not only buying our first home, but we also learned more about real estate in general. We chose a local lender suggested by Dan and were very glad that we did! The relationship between Dan and our lender allowed us to move quickly in a competitive market. Despite a global pandemic, any worries we had were eased knowing we had Dan on our side and we were able to complete the purchase smoothly.

I do not think we could have had a better agent help us buy our first home. I would HIGHLY recommend Dan to all future homebuyers!

K. Poike | Sara Maddock

This is the third time Sara has helped us with our real estate needs. We did not think twice about who to call when we needed to sell my mom’s condo. Sara is professional and makes you feel like you are her only client. She came in and told us what she felt needed to be done and quickly got the condo on the market when we were ready.

Rajiv Aggarwal | Sara Maddock

Sara help me negotiate a private sale. Eventually the Buyer couldn’t close so we listed the property on MLS. We received an offer for full price within a few hours but pressed ahead with showings. We ended up with multiple offers over asking!
Sara made the process easy. I moved out of the country and Sara handled all the details (clean up, staging, open houses, etc.). Would definitely work with her again!

Zillow User | Sara Maddock

Sara is a joy to work with and I would highly recommend her to anyone. She is extremely knowledgeable, very personable and thorough. She helped us negotiate the purchase of our beautiful new home, and was very involved throughout the entire process. When she turned her attention to selling our current home, her dedication and insights were invaluable. Her attention to detail is amazing. Staging our home was a recommendation from Sara, and we believe it made a huge difference. Our home was listed for less than one week and we had numerous offers well above our asking price…and we ended up closing in less than one month! The last thing I will add is that aside from being a total professional, Sara is FUN! We loved working with her!!!

Ed Pantzlaff | Kayla Starck

Kayla Starck is an incredible realtor! She provided great insight into my concerns, was able to help me pro vs con a few things, and made the whole process very easy and low stress. If she had not told me that I was her first seller, I would have never known. She is clearly an incredibly hard worker, who is willing to put in the time. I’ve worked with a handful of other realtors. Kayla Starck earned my highest recommendation, and will earn yours too.

Sam Soussahn | Kayla Starck

Kayla was absolutely fantastic in navigating the rental process in Ann Arbor. As someone who was coordinating an out of state move on a limited time budget, Kayla did everything possible to facilitate the process. She quickly adapts to the dynamic Ann Arbor market and keeps you informed and up to date at all times. She even did a few video tours for the times I could not personally visit the properties. Kayla exemplifies everything you would want in a real estate agent: someone who is knowledgeable about the area, punctual, professional, and a strong advocate on your behalf. I highly recommend working with Kayla for your real estate needs.

Mar4as | Kayla Starck

Kayla is a rock star! She suggested properties and guided us through many
homes in person and virtually, even on short notice. Her advice was helpful to guide our offers, and it was straightforward to sign offers electronically. It feels like the entire team at BHHS is on your side. Highly recommended!

Austin Melancon | Todd Waller

Todd has been amazingly helpful through our home buying process. As we were moving into an unfamiliar area, Todd’s knowledge of the local area, expertise, and experience were an invaluable resource through our process. He helped us find a fantastic home with most of our preferences included at a reasonable price. I’d absolutely recommend Todd to anyone looking to buy in Ypsilanti/Ann Arbor or the surrounding areas! 

Rojano Kashani | Todd Waller

Todd is fantastic! He is kind, energetic, and extremely knowledgeable about the Ann Arbor area. From the time I contacted him, it took less than a week to get my house listed, and within 3 days we were under contract. He was very responsive, and was very understanding of my crazy work and travel schedule. I am very grateful to Todd and would highly recommend him.

Glenn Trevisan | Todd Waller

Flat out, Todd was wonderful to work with to sell my mother-in-law’s home in Brighton, MI. While several people I know and trust highly recommended Todd, I felt obligated as trustee of her estate to consider several realtors. Todd’s preparation, presentation and plan was superior to others I considered and then he delivered. He helped me to stage the house then went to work with a fabulous photo/video listing, pricing, timing, showings, an open house and we had multiple offers withing a week. Best of all, Todd kept me in the loop every step of the way and walked me through the myriad details. I highly recommend Todd and won’t be considering other realtors next time I need to list or find a home. I’ll just be calling Todd.

Jonah Levy | Jeffrey Post

Jeffrey is a fabulous realtor! He is a walking encyclopedia, able to tell us all about every neighborhood and condo complex in Ann Arbor. Jeffrey showed us a range of condos, pointing out the pros and cons of each. Because he knows the market so well, we were able to get a sense of pricing quickly. Jeffrey is also very gracious. He always responded to our questions quickly and clearly. What is more, while providing a wealth of information, he never gave us the hard sell. Because Jeffrey would talk about the problems of condos or the reasons why they might not be a good fit for us, and not just sing the praises of every unit, we felt that we could trust his judgment and opinions.

Jeffrey’s help didn’t end with the signing of the purchase agreement. He also steered us to lawyers, home inspectors, and insurance companies — all of whom provided excellent service. In addition, Jeffrey gave us a list of companies for future maintenance and repairs. To top it off, when we took possession of our beautiful condo, we found champagne and chocolates courtesy of Jeffrey.

Jeffrey is a class act, from start to finish. He provides top-notch information and service, without trying to steer you in a particular direction. Work with Jeffrey — you won’t be sorry!

Joanna Mattis | Jeffrey Post

We could not have had a more wonderful experience buying our “forever home” with Jeffrey Post at BHHS. We were house-hunting while still living in another state, and facing a very tough market, so the odds weren’t in our favor! But we told Jeffrey what we were looking for, and he magically found the exact perfect house for our family. (We’ve continued to keep half an eye on Zillow in the >1 month since, and no other house has come close.) Jeffrey then guided us with cheerful competence through to a smooth and uncomplicated closing. We are so grateful for his help, and ultimately for his friendship. We can’t recommend him highly enough!

Robert Sundy | Jeffrey Post

I would recommend without hesitation partnering with Jeffrey Post to buy or sell your home in the Ann Arbor area. A colleague at our Fortune 500 Company recommended Jeffrey to us as part of a relocation. She shared that Jeffrey was knowledgeable, patient, and thorough. We could not agree more. Jeffrey is well connected in the surrounding Ann Arbor area and did an excellent job listening to our needs and helped us to find a house that we truly loved. Because of Jeffrey’s strong network he was able to show us homes the moment they hit the market. He would make suggestions that enhanced our thinking, understanding, and ability to secure the house we wanted. Finally, Jeffrey brought in all the best experts along the way and took a client-first approach that affirmed that he is the only realtor we would work in this area.
