Michael moved to California from Pennsylvania as a teenager, following his dream of becoming a professional athlete. Cut short by injury, his focus shifted to the growing California housing industry where he devoted countless hours to managing contractors and learning the intricacies of getting custom homes ready for their eventual owners.
Through this experience Mike gained a solid understanding of new home construction and the housing market. Mike's career changed when an opportunity was presented to become to become sales/marketing representative for a major sports brand in Southern California. Mike thoroughly enjoyed his new role and was dedicated to building strong relationships with each individual client by ensuring their individual business needs were met. The result was year-after-year sales growth, ultimately leading his territory to record-high levels.
Despite the career change, Mike's heart and interests remained tied to real estate. While his wife was in graduate school they managed a 25-unit apartment building to help with the expense of her education. Upon graduating, they bought their first home in southern California and started a second business buying real estate as an investment.
Eventually the sports company he had once took pride in being a part of was bought by a larger corporate entity and no longer was held to the values that drew him to the job in the first place. It was therefore a very natural transition for him to become a real estate agent where he could meld together his love of sales and passion for real estate.
