Since graduating from the University of Dayton, Mike has been involved in a myriad of careers in the financial industry. During a ten-year tenure with the CPA firm of Arthur Andersen & Co. he rose to the level of audit manager in their Chicago office. The suburban banking market became his next calling, and he accepted an executive vice president position with a prominent local bank, and then later became the president and board member of a de novo Bank known as First Colonial Bank of McHenry County. When the bank entered into a merger agreement with what is now US Bank, he decided to parlay his strong financial background as a broker in the local commercial real estate market.

Since 2001 Mike has worked in almost every facet of the commercial real estate industry — client representation (selling and buying), property searches, development entitlements, pro forma analysis, broker opinions of value, sale of businesses, appraisal consulting, and real estate tax appeals.

He is licensed as a broker in both Illinois and Wisconsin
