Michael started his career with Terry Martel Real Estate in 1986. With hard work and a little luck, he placed 9th of 300 agents in his first full year and has managed to always do well in the ensuing years. Michael is very happy to have joined Bosley Real Estate in January of 1999, and he has placed in the top ten in his office every year since 2000.
Michael has amassed a lot of experience in his real estate career and has sold through all kinds of markets, both good and bad. He has kept up his ongoing education and has taken upwards of 40 real estate related courses over the years. He professes to be as enthusiastic today, as he was when he started. He is presently a coaching client and a member of Richard Robbins International, one of the top real estate training organizations in North America.
