As Founder and CEO, Michael does it all -- and with more than 30 years of experience in commercial real estate consulting and valuation, he knows it all, too. Michael is a designated member of The Appraisal Institute (MAI), as well as a state certified general appraiser, real estate broker and a senior property tax consultant. Founding Lane Property Tax Advocates in 2009, Michael has cultivated a team of real estate industry pros, representing commercial clients with assessments totaling more than $1.5 billion.
Known for his positive and energetic nature, Michael takes on a lot of responsibilities to ensure the Lane team has everything necessary to help clients successfully protest their excessive commercial real estate property taxes. To that end, he oversees all communications, management, human resources and marketing, in addition to putting his analytical skills to use for client protests. But don't worry, Michael does have some free time, in which he enjoys golfing, fishing, hunting, and exercising. Plus, he's been known to be the king of the grill and can also mix up a delicious cocktail, margarita or pour you a nice glass of wine. This fun-loving family man has many talents and is the reason Lane is a successful company which prides itself on customer service.
