Michael grew up in a small town in Ohio for most of his life though was originally born at Fort Knox Army Base while his father was serving in the military. Throughout his young life he was shown three main principals through his family that have steered the rest of his life this far; Integrity, Honesty and Fidelity. All have proven to be invaluable in both his personal and business career.
Michael earned his degree from the University of Toledo in Economics and Urban Planning and has traversed the United States and beyond while searching for his passion for selling opportunities that one would not normally see or find the value. Whether it be a home in a 98-story high rise, a multi-family building that establishes alternative income, or a second home in Costa Rica. Michael is a statistical analyst for his clients and has become a resource both in his current home of Chicago, as well as wherever his friends, family and clients’ lives take them. They often contact him when thinking of buying to have him run his spreadsheet versus those they have received in other markets to compare.
Prior to Real Estate, Michael has worked for non-profits of all sectors, and still sits on the board for many of them. He is actively involved with the Chicago Police Department Memorial Fund which assists family’s of Fallen Officers as well is on the Executive Advisor Team for the Beta Theta Pi chapter at Loyola University Chicago. He is a member of the Union League Club of Chicago and enjoys the strong Art Collection, Civic Appreciation and Social Responsibility the club connotes. One of the paths that transformed how Michael realized that he can establish rapport with just about anyone, is when he accepted a position that was completely outside the box for him, working for the leading professional motorcycle racing promoter in the World and heading up their road racing program. The people in this industry showed and accepted Michael into this foreign world and made him realize that if you have passion, understanding and a willingness to learn something that you may not fully understand you will not only excel, though you will also become a much better person for the rest of your life as a result.
Michael has been visiting Costa Rica for over two decades and is also a land owner and is currently in the process of bidding out for his second home (first was in Ojochal) in Costa Rica to be built within Costa Verde Estates in Escaleras where the Sierra Collection is located. When he first came to Costa Rica, the infrastructure was not yet as far south as he had decided to build his home. It was only recently, as of about 7-8 years ago, that the roads, bridges, airports, utilities, fiber, and water has been secured and built for the region. Michael is familiar with all aspects of construction, and land ownership in Costa Rica and will become an invaluable resource for anyone looking to invest in the region.
