Michael Griffin specializes in professional portfolio advisory services and representation of the real estate needs of corporate clients.  He identifies, recommends and executes actions to optimize commercial real estate.  As a licensed CPA, Michael’s services include an in-depth financial strategy and planning.  


Clients such as Cooper Aerobics Center, Compass Bank, Dow Jones, and Merrill Lynch have all benefited from Michael’s expertise.  His strategic process creates facilities that promote business goals, which ultimately generates wealth and shareholder equity.  He has even created whole new businesses for his clients such as Dr. Kenneth Cooper with the Cooper Aerobics Center at Craig Ranch.  However, similar benefits to revenue and expense may be achieved with traditional office lease renewals or relocations and building purchases, sales or new construction.
