Michael has worked in commercial real estate for nearly 20 years.
Prior to founding Ground + Space, he was a Managing Partner at Atlantic Retail. He was brought on board in 2014 to build the company's investment sales platform, and his team did nearly $100 million in sales during their first 15 months of operation. It was during his time in this role that the concept for Ground + Space was formed.
Michael founded Ground + Space in 2018 with a specialization in the brokerage of single tenant and triple net retail centers, along with a focus on 1031 exchange buyers. Michael has personally sold more than $750 million worth of property for his private, public and institutional clients throughout his career, and with Ground + Space, he’ll build upon that while offering personal attention and a boutique experience to his clients.
