Michael is a Maryville native and lifelong resident of Blount County. He graduated from William Blount High School in 1997, Maryville College in 2001, and then obtained an MBA from the University of Tennessee in 2002. For the past 15 years, Michael has worked in professional sales roles where he led dynamic, high-achieving sales teams all across the country. His expertise is aligning the needs of clients with the solutions and products that he can offer and working with them to maximize their investments. Shifting into real estate was a natural move that has allowed him to spend more time in the community that he loves and to serve real people as they make major life decisions.
Over the years, Michael has been heavily involved in Young Life and his church, as well as participating in projects with Habitat for Humanity, Second Harvest and Reach Haiti Ministries. He currently serves on the Board of the LeConte Foundation.
Michael is an avid cyclist, a massive sports fan, and a bit of a low-key foodie. He and his wife, Katie have three amazing sons (Blu, Eliott and Tuck). They can often be found coaching their children’s sports teams, playing some form of ball in the yard, or walking their Dalmatian, Watson, around one of the local parks.
