Mike has been practicing industrial real estate brokerage since 1990 when he started in the research department at CBRE, and left as a Vice President nine years later. Following a stint at Trammell Crow Company, Mike left TCC to open the office of Neil Walter Company, acting as the Managing Principal there for over 17 years before reuniting with his former colleagues at KBC. Through these periods and to the present, Mike has balanced a healthy corporate advisory business—his clients have included Coca-Cola, JELD-WEN, and WinCo Foods, among others—with a strong base of institutional listing clients such as Prologis, Terreno, DeutscheBank, and Fortress. Mike is well-known in the industry for his honesty and integrity, and he takes great pride in the quality and duration of his relationships within his professional circle. Mike has been a Costar Power Broker nearly every year since the inception of the award, is a current Commercial Brokers Association (CBA) Board member, and is a past President of the Washington State Commercial Association of Brokers (WSCAR). He resides in Issaquah with his wife, Heather, and has three teenage children, all of whom are now better snow skiers and wake surfers than he is, which is a source of both pride and consternation for him.
