Having spent 30 years in the finance industry, he’s making his second career in real estate and his path to our family of realtors is pure kismet. Michael and his family lived in Chicago and Boston, and spent vacations and school breaks in Scottsdale. Michael fell in love with the dry heat, the blue skies and the stark, open desert landscape, and always knew that he’d move to Arizona once the last of his five children was off to college. Before making the leap, he did a trial run and leased a condo at Optima Camelview, eventually buying a home in the Enclave at Borgata. He specializes in helping buyers, sellers and investors looking for homes and condominiums within the Scottsdale and Phoenix markets.

When Michael isn’t out making real estate dreams a reality for his clients, you can find him spending time with his five children, enjoying a relaxing game of golf or tennis or volunteering with YearUp Arizona – a national organization that helps young adults (18-22) bridge the opportunity divide.

Thank you so much for visting my site! I’d love to tell you a little about myself, and why I do what I do!

I grew up in small town in Missouri (think Footloose sort of small… no REALLY! The movie was based off a town near mine!). I loved my childhood and the memories I made in that town. I loved the feeling of being connected to those around you… knowing the employees by name over at Modern Variety, saying hello and really meaning it when you pass someone on the sidewalk. These values are part of me, and are reflected in the way I treat my clients.

It’s such a huge privilege for me to share the experience of buying a home with you. Whether it’s your first home, your second home, or your dream vacation home, the excitement is just as palpable each time. I want my clients to feel that small town connection, even in a larger city like Phoenix. I have worked in the new home sales (and recently, resale) fields for well over a decade, earning top honors in sales and customer service. My experience in these fields (and over 14 years in the Valley) has allowed me to cultivate many business and personal relationships which enable me to network in a way that is unique to my field.

As a single mom to 2 spunky little boys, I have a strong belief in family and ethics, and want my clients to know how much I value them. Customer service is my priority. I don’t just want you to love your home, I want you to love the process of finding it!
