Mike moved to Humboldt County in 1996 to raise his kids and attend HSU, earning a degree in English. He fell in love with living on the North Coast and has made Humboldt his home ever since. After spending four years as a local financial advisor with a national Wall Street firm, Mike transitioned into a career in commercial real estate, and spent 16 years managing a diversified portfolio of commercial properties, including retail, office, warehouse, and industrial properties located from Maine to Alaska, gaining extensive experience in leasing, property management, acquisitions, and sales of various property types.
With his kids grown, he decided to make a lifestyle change from the corporate world and took a position with a California state agency, handling appraisals and acquisitions of various properties located in Humboldt, Del Norte, Lake, and Mendocino Counties, and finally transitioned into a career as a Realtor with the Land Man Office, as it offered him the opportunity to put his knowledge and experience to work for individual clients.
Mike lives in Eureka with his partner and their two dogs. In his free time, Mike enjoys exploring new parts of the North Coast, backpacking, photography, fly fishing, white water rafting, and running an occasional half Marathon.
