About Michael:

Michael has been a commercial real estate broker for 30+ years, specializing as an Office Tenant-Rep. He has handled nearly 900 projects for taxable and tax-exempt clients since founding MAP Real Estate in 1986 in the Chicago-metro market. To scale a philanthropic program Michael began in 1995, he and his partner founded Investing In Communities®, a web-based social enterprise that leverages ubiquitous real estate brokerage industry dynamics to establish an otherwise unavailable source of funding for the social sector by redirecting and then repurposing a widespread marketing expense of brokers and agents.
