While at CBRE, Michael directed project leasing assignments, asset acquisitions and asset dispositions, conducted asset valuations, performed asset branding and repositioning, evaluated and acquired performing and non-performing loans, and negotiated non-performing loan workouts and deed in-lieu-foreclosures.

He applies an equitable perspective and understanding of real estate, as both an owner and operator, across multiple commercial assets. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts double major in Finance and International Business from Florida Atlantic University in 1998.
Michael moved from California to Florida with his wife Kim and two kids, Lane and Shona, in 2016. There he joined his brother Tyler to continue the growth of the Equistone Partners brand in Florida. Michael continues to pursue interests that include sailing, yoga, hiking, snowboarding and cycling.
