Steve founded Michel Commercial Real Estate in 1987. He was licensed to sell real estate in 1978 while completing his senior year of college. Having been in the trenches selling investment real estate as it evolved over these last 5 decades, Steve is uniquely equipped to serve his clients with skills that can only be learned from many years of successfully completing apartment transactions. The business relationships formed over these many years with his clients, is the foundation of his success in selling apartments in the five midwestern states of MN, ND, SD, IA, and WI. Steve markets his listings, regionally, nationally, and in some instances, internationally (he once received earnest money in ‘Euros’). No stone is left unturned by Steve with his clients to help them attain their sale or acquisition goals. Having transacted the sale of thousands of market rate, affordable, senior, and student housing apartments, equating to billions of dollars, in every economic environment over many years, Steve is looking forward to the next decade in the industry and he is ready to put his market knowledge to work for you. Steve and his wife, Cheryl, live in the western suburbs of Minneapolis, MN. They have 4 grown children, all who live and work nearby. Family, friends, cabin, travel, faith, and doing all the outdoor activities we do as Minnesotans, is where Steve spends his free time.
