Office - Leasing & Sales
Background & Experience
Mike George joined NAI Puget Sound Properties in January 2010 and has been a Partner for over seven years. A specialist in the selling and leasing of office buildings, Mike heads NAI PSP’s office division and operates primarily in South King County. With three decades of combined experience in commercial real estate under his belt, Mike has honed his knowledge and expertise by assisting clients in a variety of industries; over time, he’s represented landlords and tenants alike and has played key roles in numerous investment and sales transactions.
Mike’s first exposure to commercial real estate was as an intern during his senior year at the University of Washington; he immediately liked the intensity of the business as well as the people that were a part of it. He responded well to the industry’s entrepreneurial vibe and liked that the brokers had the space to be their own bosses—in this industry, hard work pays off.
Today, he still appreciates these aspects of commercial real estate, and he continues to enjoy the high level of action intrinsic to the job. He likes that his work is marked by variety and finds it a privilege to be able to interact with clients from all backgrounds and industries—from institutional owners to mom-and-pop outfits—on a daily basis. Mike’s end goal for all deals is client happiness, and he approaches each transaction by placing himself in his client’s shoes in order to best assess their needs and objectives. Through these efforts and his breadth of knowledge and experience, Mike devises recommendations optimally structured for each client. He also recognizes the value of crafting win-win solutions that make sense to both parties, and, as an agile out-of-the-box thinker, he enjoys developing creative solutions that promote harmony across the table.
Mike appreciates that at NAI PSP, his colleagues are not only skilled and hardworking professionals, they’re also “great human beings.” He enjoys the company’s family-like environment and the fact that NAI PSP has an open-door policy that’s rare among firms in the commercial real estate industry; he credits much of the company’s success to this tacit mission of helping one another out and “making each other look good and be better.”
Prior to his leasing and sales experience, Mike was a Senior Vice President with Colliers International for 20 years. He also spent considerable time in the research department at Colliers and feels that working in this area exposed him to a variety of sectors in the commercial real estate industry—from office to industrial to apartments to retail—as well as to different geographical regions in the Puget Sound area. He soon found his skills particularly suited to the office industry in Seattle’s Southend and likes that, in this region, “you get to wear a lot of hats.”
Mike was born in Seattle and raised in Bellevue, and has lived in the Puget Sound region his entire life. A father of three children, he’s a huge sports fan and in his free time can be found skiing, playing softball, spending time outdoors, traveling, and reading. He regularly travels with his daughter’s softball team and has a passion for rooting on the local sports teams (“Go Huskies!”).
