  • I met Michael in 1985. He was a real estate rep for a toy store chain and I was invited to shadow him on a site tour, as I was just entering real estate. As Mike and I discussed many times, I felt I met him on my first day in the business. For about four decades, we always stayed in touch, and I loved seeing his name pop up on my phone for an impromptu call. He was always such a gentleman. His kind and helpful voice will be remembered forever. A deep loss. Gary Stevens Cleveland Heights, Ohio
