About

Professional Summary

As a Senior Vice President of Office Brokerage at Colliers International | Minneapolis-St. Paul, my work focuses on tenant representation, owner representation and sales to investors and owners. Concentrating primarily in the suburban Minneapolis market, I advise clients through a consultative approach to meet their real estate needs.

Over the course of my 21 years in the industry, I have worked primarily in the suburban office market. The in-depth knowledge I’ve gained over this time allows me to help my clients make smart decisions as I implement thorough strategies within every detail of an assignment. Since joining Colliers, I’ve completed over 750 transactions with a total consideration of over $1 Billion, and consistently been one of Colliers’ top-producing office brokers.

I consider myself extremely fortunate to love what I do and have a genuine passion for it. I am determined to meet my client’s needs and solve their real estate issues and am never content unless my client is satisfied with the outcome of the deal. I have worked hard and done business the right way to earn the majority of my business today from repeat or referral customers as my clients trust me to create the best solutions for all parties involved.

“Mike performed superbly in guiding us through a challenging office space resizing and relocation process. He helped us explore a wide variety of different sizing and building alternatives and provided us with valuable market and space insights each step of the way. Our project was successfully concluded with new space optimized for our design objectives and with a significant reduction in cost. Based upon our experience I can highly recommend Mike and his team for any lease renewal or office relocation project.”
