Areas of Expertise
Michael started his first construction company as a one-man-show in 2000, eventually growing Coleman Creek Construction to include a successful team of 20+.
Michael’s affinity for data analytics coupled with a keen sense of specificity and discernment have allowed him to develop proprietary systems that set Coleman Creek apart in the industry.
Designed to eliminate unexpected variables and ensure accurate bids and realistic schedules, these processes have helped Coleman Creek become one of the most respected remodeling construction companies in Southern Oregon.
Michael joined Remodeler’s Advantage in 2016 in an effort to deliver the greatest possible value to his homeowner clients. Investing in the development of efficient systems for his own business inspired the creation of Maestro’s Toolbox.
His ability to listen and provide efficient solutions make him a valuable asset to service industry professionals seeking methodical and sustainable growth. After 22 years of listening and responding to the needs of homeowners, Michael found himself ready to step away from running Coleman Creek Construction and is now fully focused on working with business owners exclusively.
Michael is a four-time Remodeler’s Advantage Impact Award nominee and his company was a member of the 2019 Big 50 and a finalist for the 2019 Fred Case Award.
He is committed to creating work environments that promote the health and well-being of his employees and is a passionate advocate of work/life balance.
I am the father of two amazing children who are now out in the world creating their best lives.
My 25 year old daughter, Ember, is married and is the “in house” mechanical engineer of a 5,000 acre family farm in Corvallis Oregon.
My 22 year old son, Salvatore, who has a “numbers brain” like his father, is using those skills to process tax returns while developing his musical skills. He and I both play the guitar, bass, piano, and work together and separately in my recording studio where we are both honing our skills to become better engineers and producers.
Music, travel and surfing take up most of my free time and it’s been awesome to share these things with my children.
