Michael Cagen

First Vice President Investments

Michael is a First Vice President - Investments with Marcus & Millichap, which is the largest investment property brokerage in the nation. The firm closed approximately $86 billion in sales in 2022 with more than $1 billion of that in Michigan. Recognizing that the best buyer may not be a local buyer, Michael leverages the M&M platform to effectively locate buyers from both in state as well as out of state areas. Through the use of modern technology, he's able to capture all leads and locate brokers in need of property that he's listed. Performing valuation analysis for clients is a cornerstone mission, which requires in depth knowledge of product, the local market and timely information on the financing environment.

He is also recognized for his ability to locate sites suitable for development. Previous real estate assignments have included acquisition of vacant commercial property suitable for adult independent living facilities and the sale of tax credit housing projects.

He has previously been an active member of the Michigan CCIM Chapter's Board of Directors for four years, having held the positions of secretary, treasurer, and vice chair. In 1998, he was elected President of the organization. In 2002, he was elected Secretary of the MLS Exchange, Inc, which was the entity that provided CIRRIX services to commercial members, and MLS services to residential members. In April 2003, Michael was elected President of MLS Exchange, Inc. Michael has been named 2003 Realtor of the Year, a designation that is awarded to only one Grand Rapids area Realtor each year.

In 2005, Michael was elected and served as President of the Commercial Alliance of Realtors.

Michael received an award for the largest multifamily sale in 2010 and 2011, in addition to receiving the award in 2021 for Project / Transaction of the Year.
