An elementary school ‘Mathlete’ and student of Gematria, Michael has always been fascinated with the power of math and numbers. He grew up in the Chicago Suburbs as the son of a Realtor riding along with buyers showing property and serving as the de facto tech support for his mom’s real estate office. This period of dramatic change in technology during the late 80’s and early 90’s gave Michael a rich understanding of the personalities, lifestyle and marketing needs for agents and their clients.
In 2006, Michael earned his license and began originating mortgage loans. Doubling his loan sales production each year of his career, Michael has made himself a top producer and is now recognized among the most respected, visible and reputable mortgage lenders in San Diego.
Michael has been quoted over the past few years in articles published by Reuters, Chicago Tribune, US News and World Report, Huffington Post, MSN Real Estate, Deseret Times and others.
Michael is committed to contributing to change through community participation and involvement. He has served on the San Diego Downtown Community Planning Council (DCPC) for 3 terms representing the Little Italy, Marina and Gaslamp districts. He is a co-founder of Kavod Elementary Charter School and an advocate for Charter School Development and education.
Michael also is an active participant in the San Diego real estate community; a previous elected Committee member of the Downtown San Diego Realtor Caravan, performing volunteer work for that group as well as the METRO San Diego Realtor Caravan and Coronado Real Estate Association.
Michael is a single father who spends his time enjoying all that San Diego has to offer with his two beautiful children Noa and Benji.
