Knowledge is Critical to Success
Mike has been educated as a Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) and held that designation through 2005. The CCIM designation is earned upon completion of a graduate-level curriculum and attainment of a level of qualifying experience. CCIMs are recognized experts in commercial real estate brokerage, leasing, asset management, valuation, and investment analysis, and form a business network encompassing markets throughout North America.
In addition to being licensed to list, sell, and lease real estate in Colorado, Mike held a Certified Financial Planner designation, allowing him to advise clients on the taxation of real estate, investment returns, estate planning and trust work in real estate matters, and financing. Although he no longer actively holds that designation, he continues to update himself on significant issues for the benefit of his clients.
Concerned about the level of knowledge in the real estate field, Mike has held seminars and workshops for both professionals in the industry and the public on such topics as professional planning and time management, real estate investment portfolios, 1031 tax deferred exchanges, trust work in real estate matters, financing, and estate planning with real estate. He currently teaches the GRI classes on Finance, Investment and Management, and Taxation for Real Estate Professionals.
And in his Spare Time
Mike has for years studied woodworking. In particular, he has practiced building with only the hand tools available to craftsmen up through the late 1800's. His love of music has taken him to building fine hand-crafted acoustic guitars. He has traveled to Nicaragua to teach and nurture a number of guitar builders in the mountains in the north country. Their new skills and knowledge, along with business and financial support, has created an active Guild of Nicaraguan Luthiers and a number of successful shops in a region of great need.
Most Important is the Family
Mike lives outside Longmont, Colorado with his wife Lois. Their three children are successfully on their own, making in their own ways a better world for us all. Best of all, they all continue to gather as a family for holidays and special events that they make for themselves throughout the year.
