Mike grew up in Essex County, New Jersey and studied history at James Madison University in Virginia. Mike became involved with Bike and Build, a non-profit dedicated to providing affordable housing for all Americans. From there Mike worked for an historic preservation firm in Charleston, South Carolina, where he renovated and repaired historic homes throughout the city and surrounding areas. Mike’s passion for history led him into the teaching profession. He earned a Master’s in Teaching from The Citadel and spent six years as a public school teacher.
While teaching in New Orleans, Mike and his wife bought and renovated an historic home in the city. Mike took part in every aspect of the renovation and did most of the work himself. The process of transforming this home was Mike’s segue into real estate. After years teaching Mike became a Realtor in Louisiana and earned the Historic Homes Specialist designation by the Preservation Resource Center of New Orleans.
With the birth of their first child, Mike and his wife decided to relocate close to family. Mike currently lives in Lake Worth where he is in the process of renovating another historic home. As a member of the Pier Group at RE/MAX, Mike’s business focuses on relocating sellers, renovation and restoration projects, and helping first time home buyers make an informed financial decision.
