Born and raised in Saint John, New Brunswick, Michael has resided in Calgary since 2001, with a brief relocation to London, Ontario from 2003 to 2005.
An avid reader and lover of music, an ideal day is spent working with music on and constantly having to turn it down when answering the phone, then falling asleep in the evening after having read one page of a book. Michael’s other interests vary from economics and real estate to travel and pondering why 7eleven doesn’t change their name since they are now open 24/7.
Husband and father of two active and spirited children, Michael treasures his time with family both at home and in New Brunswick and Ontario. In his spare time, Michael operates a shuttle company to gymnastics, dance, swimming, yoga, fencing and wall-climbing.
In addition to pretending to know how to snowboard, Michael is an aspiring beer snob and is contemplating whether to start liking scotch.

As a dedicated BMO Bank of Montreal Mortgage Specialist, Michael is committed to assisting clients at all stages of life with any home financing need; whether it’s buying a first home, dream home, investment property, refinancing to access equity or switching a mortgage from another lender to BMO.
“We found ourselves overwhelmed with questions about what comes next. Michael proved to be an invaluable resource as we weighed options for refinancing our rental property and structuring the new mortgage to balance our cash flow and repayment goals. Michael’s patience and expertise during our building process was truly appreciated; I would gladly continue to refer friends and family going forward.”

“I have dealt with Michael on numerous occasions for my primary mortgage, rental mortgages, and general mortgage advice. I have always found him to be very responsive and transparent and was able to go over and above when I needed extra help. I have personally recommended him to family members and will continue to send him referrals in the future.”

“Michael is an absolute joy to work with. Not only did he help us obtain our mortgage, but he was able to recommend an amazing realtor to help us buy our first home. He was helpful and kind throughout the entire process.”
Michael has two goals that are kept sharply in focus when working with every single client.
First, that he understands each client’s unique situation and ensures they have the very best advice and the right product and features that fit their needs.
Secondly, to provide an experience that undoubtedly allows for referral and recommendation to friends, family, co-workers, or strangers on the street who overhear the cheers of joy.
With a passion for first-time home-buyers, Michael excels at building trust, putting clients at ease and guiding the journey.
