In this role, he draws on his strong background in both the mortgage industry as a loan officer and health care industry as a seasoned and successful medical solutions account executive.

He brings a practical and straightforward approach to every transaction, understanding the importance of pricing appropriately for the market.
As a tenant representative, Mike is fearless and tenacious. He always makes the time to view as many properties as a client needs to find the one that best fits their needs.

A quote that has stayed with me since my days as an account executive in healthcare is, ‘think in leaps, iterate in steps.’ I prioritize listening to my clients and understanding what they want out of a transaction, whether listing or buying, then work to ensure that each step of the process aligns with those initial considerations.
