He launched his real estate career in December 2008 during one of the biggest recessions in U.S. history.

Proudly closing 35 transactions and over $15+ million in sales in his first year, Mike has since become one of Southern California’s most successful real estate agents. Trusted by peers, associates, and clients alike, he is now ranked in the “Top 100 Agents in the Nation.”
Industry leading expert in Luxury Homes, Resales, New Home Sales, Multi Family, Mixed Use Properties, and Apartments. Mike has devoted his life to real estate.
