He’ll be responsible for Cascade Sotheby’s next-stage growth including market development, leveraged marketing opportunities for brokers and clients, and overall day-to-day operations of the company’s presence throughout Oregon.
“With our expansion to the Portland metro market, Oregon Coast and Willamette Valley wine country, Cascade Sotheby’s hit $1.3 billion in 2016—and we are on track to double that growth with the support of a talent like Michael,” says Deb Tebbs, CEO and founder Cascade Sotheby’s International Realty. “Michael brings the rich experience in market development, recruitment and international operations that will lead our company into its next stage of advancement. We welcome his leadership which will help us even further leverage the Sotheby’s brand and support our brokers and clients like never before.”
