As a licensed real estate agent in New York State since 2016, Mike brings with him 14 years of property management, along with over 25 years in management for the world's largest retailer. This work ethic and skill set have led to a successful career transition into full-time commercial and residential real estate sales, acquisitions, apartment rentals, and leasing.


"My goal has always been to meet and exceed client needs. Whether I'm facilitating the purchase of a first or dream home or finding a commercial locale for a business start-up or expansion, I focus on your needs. Maybe you're transitioning to a smaller residence or retiring your commercial business; I'll work with you to develop a customized marketing plan to best showcase your property and negotiate the best possible price."


Mike's extensive knowledge, experience, and commitment have built and solidified ongoing business relationships with his real estate clients and facilitated neighborhood enhancement. Such was the case at 81 Wall Street, Auburn. The property had been vacant and in disrepair for some time. Working closely with the local community college administration, it is now home to Cayuga Child Care. This vibrant center has transformed and re-energized the surrounding area. "To have played a role in uplifting this area is what motivates me."


Professionally, he is a member of the Greater Association of Syracuse Realtors (GSAR), the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the Cayuga County Business Professionals, and a monthly civic forum, "Wednesday Morning Roundtable." He attended OCC, Oswego State University, with continuing study in Business Administration.


Born and raised in Central New York, Mike is the proud father of two beautiful daughters and actively involved in his church. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his family. He enjoys outdoor activities, especially fishing and camping.
