Meet Michael

Mike joined Heritage Wealth Management Group in January of 2020. After spending four years in the United States Air Force, he returned to school and graduated from the University of Southern California with a degree in Finance. He then moved to San Francisco where he earned his MBA. He also met and married Marie in San Francisco, where they were then blessed with their daughter Vanessa.

After working for Raychem and Ampex, Mike moved his young family back to Los Angeles and joined Coldwell Banker Commercial Real Estate, specializing in selling, buying and leasing commercial property. After two successful years in LA, he was promoted to Assistant Vice President and Sales Manager and sent to Houston, Texas. Eighteen months later he was promoted again and went to Washington DC as Vice President and Resident Manager.

With three successful years closing some large projects, Mike made the move to the securities business and joined Smith Barney as a Financial Consultant. He has experience with several other firms, including Morgan Stanley, Ameriprise and Citigroup, over the past 30 years but to our good fortune, he has decided to finish his career as a Financial Advisor with HWMG, and provide the benefits of the fiduciary rule to his clients and their families.

Mike and his wife, Marie live in Vienna, Virginia and he is a 30 year member and two time Distinguished Past President of the Greater Vienna Optimist Club. In his “spare” time, when he is not serving his clients, he enjoys golf, cardio workouts and watching USC ballgames.
