Michael has been selling real estate in Friday Harbor and San Juan County since January of 2005. He is an Associate Broker as well as a Certified Sellers Representative (CSR) and an Accredited Buyers Representative (ABR). Originally from Seattle, Michael started his real estate career in the Los Angeles area with Coldwell Banker in Woodland Hills in 2001 and quickly established himself as one of that office's most successful new agents. He had purchased his house on Westcott Bay in 1999 and returning to the Northwest to pursue real estate in the San Juan Islands was a recurring dream. In 2004 Michael decided to make that change.
Michael has a marketing background. Before entering real estate, he worked in the music industry for over 20 years in marketing, promotion and advertising at Warner Bros Records. As a vice president there he helped create campaigns for dozens of artists ranging from Eric Clapton and Neil Young to Green Day. He now brings a marketing driven approach to selling real estate, utilizing the latest technologies with an emphasis on internet exposure and providing extra value to his clients. Michael chose Windermere because of the company's technologically savvy approach and the extensive educational and training resources it provides to its agents.
Since moving to San Juan Island Michael has also become involved in various community activities, joining the board of the Animal Protection Society of Friday Harbor. He was active in animal rescue in Los Angeles and has several rescued cats. He is the 2010 president of the San Juan County Association of Realtors and is also active in the Roche Harbor Neighborhood Association and the Friday Harbor Chamber Of Commerce. An avid runner, his other interests include travel, photography, skiing, reading, and of course music.
