Beverly Hills Mayor Gold Presents Coldwell Banker Associate Michael J. Libow with Step Up Award


Beverly Hills Mayor Julian Gold recently presented Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage affiliate REALTOR®, Michael J. Libow, with the Step Up Award, which is presented to those in the community of Beverly Hills who go above and beyond to make a difference in the city. A nearly lifelong Beverly Hills resident, Libow has spent a significant portion of his career giving back to the community, which he says has nurtured him.

“I am humbled to have been chosen to be one of those recognized by Mayor Gold as I typically enjoy contributing with little fanfare,” said Libow. “I am content with the knowledge that I have helped to inspire others to do what I do. I liken it to ‘paying it forward’ and truly hope that others will do the same.”

While on the path toward becoming a Jet Propulsion Laboratories rocket scientist after undergraduate work in mathematics at the University of California, Los Angeles, Libow took a career detour and entered into the real estate world of Beverly Hills. He attributes his passion for real estate to his family moving several times during his youth, which helped him discover that he enjoyed the process of searching for a new home. His career in Beverly Hills real estate began in 1986 and he is annually ranked as one of Coldwell Banker’s top salespeople.

“Given that I have no children, my legacy in the community is manifest through my service and consistent commitment to the community of Beverly Hills via its schools, police and fire departments, and ancillary services,” he added. “Beverly Hills is my hometown and will always have my heart and soul.”
