Christopher P. Finney, Esq. Finney Law Firm, LLC Cincinnati, OH

Who Is Mike Errert?

"I am a native Californian, having been born in Los Angeles and raised in Southern California. My formative years were spent in Huntington Beach, where I attended elementary and high school. I received a Bachelor of Arts Degree, majoring in Geography, from Chico State College in Northern California."

"Joining the Real Estate Department within McDonald's Corporation, starting just five days after graduating from college, I learned the basics in project management. I found my muse – real estate – a passion I can impart to you and your team."

" From initial discovery, through market analysis, site selection, due diligence, entitlements and final purchase, I will share with you how my teams developed hundreds of parcels of land that became successful McDonald's restaurants throughout the Western United States, Alaska & Hawaii."

"In 1983 a career advancement opportunity opened with Albertson's Supermarkets in their Real Estate Department. I was responsible for identifying, purchasing and leasing property for new supermarkets and their distribution system in Northern California and Northern Nevada."

"In 2001 I took my talent and skills to Church Development Fund, a private lender, shepherding Christian Churches & Universities through the process of purchasing and developing "ministry tools' throughout the United States."

"In each of these rewarding activities I learned how to 'Walk on, Listen to, Feel and Taste the Property', which assisted me in gathering the knowledge needed to make sound decisions. This was the ground work required so that the developing entity could make wise decisions in purchasing and developing the properties for their respective purposes."

"Spend time with me and I will no doubt share with you my story, my projects and how I have spent my professional career pursuing my passion of developing real estate for the corporations I worked with and now a consultant with a growing list of clients."
