A little about me

and why I love real estate

A Maine native, Michael grew up in Saco, and graduated from Thornton Academy.  He is a graduate of Green Mountain College and holds a M.B.A. from Plymouth State University.  Michael began his career in the restaurant industry with his love for people, food, and numbers.  He currently owns his own tax business, Southern Maine Tax Professionals where he specializes in working with Real Estate Agents (www.smtaxpros.com).

With an overwhelming feeling of pride, Michael watched his daughter Bailey's real estate business flourish.  Bailey's passion for the real estate industry and serving her clients is contagious.  Recently, Michael obtained his Real Estate License so he would be able to assist Bailey with the volume of business that she has created.  He is overjoyed to join the Pate Team along with his wife, Paula and daughter Sydney.  Working together, he feels this team will continue to be unstoppable as our focus is always on our client's experience.
