Why Michael is Paying It Forward


In the tapestry of life, memories play an integral role, shaping our past, present, and future. However, the heart-wrenching reality of Alzheimer's is something I've witnessed firsthand, watching my father bravely battle the disease. Those eight years were a poignant reminder of the fragile nature of our most cherished moments and the strength required by families, especially caregivers like my mother. The Alzheimer's Association became our guiding light during those tumultuous times, providing invaluable resources and support. Inspired by their unwavering dedication and the personal journey of my family, I've made it my mission to give back. A portion of every real estate sale I make is donated to the Alzheimer's Association. It's my way of honoring my father's memory and ensuring that more families have access to the resources they need. Through each transaction, I aim to contribute to a world where memories are treasured, preserved, and never fade away.
