Mike has spent his entire life in the building business. He started as a young man working on construction sites as a laborer and fell in love with the business. He pursued this love in college with a degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Notre Dame. Upon graduation he spent five years in the Army Corps of Engineers before starting his first company in California. This ultimately led to the first of several jobs with national home-building companies in Florida including Ryan Homes, Pulte Home Corp., Arthur Rutenberg Homes, and Toll Brothers, Inc. The positions grew in responsibility and scope until Mike was managing all aspects of these home-building businesses at the local level. He owned and operated an Arthur Rutenberg Franchise in Pasco County Florida before moving to the Sarasota area in 1996. Throughout his career, his love of building and interest in working with people have been the constant motivation behind his success. He has had a wide variety of experience in the building business, but has focused on luxury home-building as his primary concern. Mike is licensed as a General Contractor in the State of Florida and inactive as a General Contractor in the State of California.
