Michael also has experience in construction and has assisted clients with build-to- suit projects and major renovations. He brings more than twenty years of experience in construction to the table for a client, which can be very advantageous in evaluating the market and buildings on an “apples-to-apples” basis. Michael has built and now owns numerous office buildings, shopping centers, investment/flex buildings and other real estate facilities in the local Cleveland, Ohio market.
Michael started his own company more than fifteen (15) years ago to represent both local and national companies with their facility needs.
