Prior to joining the Main Beach Realty team, Michael spent more than 35 years in the field of Executive Search.

Miller and Moore was a boutique executive search firm operating under the principles of integrity and results in an externally driven environment, meaning the client was king.

That is the culture of Main Beach Realty and Michael is excited to join the effort to continue building the brand and reputation of this boutique real estate company.
