Michael has been involved in commercial real estate for almost 20 years in various capacities. He started as an analyst responsible for reviewing transactions and coordinating with the lender to package and document the loan file. Over a 10-year period, Michael applied his problem-solving skills to these transactions to help facilitate loan closings. That experience has led to Michael’s transition from packaging loans to origination. Few loan officers have the knowledge depth given his history with every facet of the loan process. It sets him apart and makes him uniquely qualified to review loan scenarios for clients. Michael has lived in the Pacific Northwest his entire life and currently resides in Central Oregon with his wife and 2 children.


In this episode, Michael discusses how setting goals and working backward have helped him create habits that have led to more success. He shares that the book, “The Compound Effect” by Darren Hardy, had a major impact on his life, and he wants to share it with others so they can learn too.
