Michael graduated from the University of Virginia with a degree in both English and Economics. He also earned his MBA from the Darden School at the University of Virginia, where he received the prestigious Faculty Award for Academic Excellence.
Michael has worked in residential construction and development in the Central Virginia region for over 15 years. During that time, he worked as the Vice President of Finance for a residential construction firm that received the “America’s Best Builder Award” from Builder Magazine during his time at the company.
Most recently, he worked as the Chief Financial Officer for a residential construction and development firm overseeing over $150 million in residential real estate sales.
During his time working with these companies, Michael has shepherded the sale of over 200 residential lots and over 400 residential homes, negotiated leases on over 200,000 square feet of commercial space, been involved in dozens of large tract land sales and acquisitions, as well as oversaw the purchase and sale of dozens of office buildings.
The majority of his time in real estate occurred during a historic bull run and a historic downturn and financial crisis. He successfully helped navigate companies through this unusual time in real estate’s history. As a result, the wealth of learning has been like no other, and there has been very little he hasn’t experienced in real estate, both the good and the bad.
Presently, Michael has taken his extensive experience and knowledge in residential land development, residential construction, and commercial leasing to the next step and has earned his Realtor license.
Michael is a longtime Crozet resident where he resides with his wife and two young children. Michael also volunteers his free time coaching several teams with the Blue Ridge Ice Hockey Association.
With a focus on residential land, new construction homes, and residential resales, Michael is ready to take his vast knowledge of the area and the real estate market to make your real estate transaction as smooth as possible.
