  • Advisor

Michael adds tremendous technical acumen to the experienced advisory team in our Orlando office. Having extensive experience with geographic information systems, Michael brings unique insight derived from the latest market trends to a client’s land-related acquisition or disposition needs.

Michael began in real estate as a research analyst for KB Home in Orlando. While there, he worked to streamline the land acquisition process through targeted data compilation and analysis and assemble multi-million dollar land property proposals which required a detailed understanding of complex land variables, while working collaboratively with onsite engineers.

Prior to joining Land Advisors Organization, Michael focused on analyzing land data to identify development opportunities at Bowyer-Singleton and Associates.  With his engineering and planning background, Michael created a niche in the GIS department offering advanced land analysis that catered directly to homebuilders and other land developers.
