In this industry since 2000, he has seen the market evolve and change. For Michael, it is not the dollar amount or the size of the property that grabs his attention, it is the “Golden Rule” that he lives by: “To treat everyone as he would want to be treated,” is not just a slogan, it is a way of life. Combine that with his willingness to put others’ needs before his own, provides the assurance that he will go above and beyond to get the deal closed.

    So whether you are seeking Continuing Education or Real Estate, Michael would like to thank you in advance for your business, and looks forward to serving you.

    Hey David, not sure if you remember me but I'm coordinating the REI meet ups for Las Cruces. Just saw this post and your mention of your cover charge for your groups. How has that worked out for you? Is $100 for an annual membership a good rate? Do you have to pay to rent your meeting venue? I'm considering moving to a membership fee for next year just to help it feel more official for some people and to help grow commitment to the group. We are having decent attendance now. I'm happy with it. But it's an idea I'm bouncing around because of thoughts I've heard from others. I'd love your perspective too.
