Michael’s been in real estate in one form or another since 2012. He began as a realtor and then moved into lending in 2015. Michael’s seen it all: he’s experienced market ups and downs and has served in a variety of positions, including underwriting and processing, credit repair consulting, and originating.
Prior to real estate, he grew up in a small town in Alaska, and after joining the Navy, moved around the country. In the Navy, he worked as a nuclear mechanic on a submarine, The USS Kentucky. Michael moved to Phoenix, Arizona after the Navy. It was in Phoenix that he earned his bachelor's degree in finance and MBA and met his wife. After living and growing there, Michael and his wife Katie made their dream of living by the sea come true: they packed up and moved to West Palm Beach, Florida where they now try to get on the water (or at least near it) as often as possible with their two-year-old son and two dogs.
Michael has always thought that in business, relationships come first. He adheres to that philosophy in lending by supporting his clients however he can. Providing great service and a good experience and truly getting to know the people behind his files are just a few of the ways Michael makes home loans a personal and “team-oriented” experience.
Michael’s nickname is “Fast Eddy” because he responds quickly: he feels that being at ease with him means never having to wonder about the status of your loan. His motto has always been “families not files” because he sees everyone he works with as a person with individual needs, interests, and ideas… not just another file. For Michael it’s not about getting the next loan, it’s about getting a family home, and that should be done both swiftly and with care so that families can stop worrying and start enjoying the benefits of homeownership. When you work with Michael you become a part of a family that’s dedicated to taking care of its members.
