An internationally versed professional, Michael holds more than 12 years of experience in real estate sales, business development, management, and consulting. Having joined The Agency in June 2017, he brings in-depth international knowledge, creativity, and proactive decision-making skills to his role as Sales Manager at the company’s Palm Springs and Palm Desert offices.
Michael’s road to a career in real estate includes a diverse and fascinating array of experiences that took him to far-off locations across the globe, beginning with his position as a Nurse Corps Officer with the US Navy. After his service, he honed his team management skills overseeing the personnel needs of more than 100 State Department employees for the Iraq Reconstruction Management Office in Baghdad.
Earning his MBA with Honors from The International University of Monaco, Michael then worked as a Strategic Management Consultant providing services to a range of global clients including Italy, Jordan, Monaco, and The United States to name a few. He would then make, what he calls, the natural transition to real estate to combine his passion for business with his passion for helping others on a much more personal level, guiding them through what is likely the most important financial decision of their lives.
Prior to joining The Agency, Michael was an agent with Bennion Deville Homes in Palm Springs. In addition to his MBA, the Atlanta native earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing Science at Auburn University. He continues to serve as an Alumni Ambassador to The International University of Monaco, where he also established and funded an annual award aimed at highlighting and encouraging students to volunteer within the local Monegasque community.
