Testimonials


I want to share my experience working with Mike because I know it is difficult to find a partner you can trust and rely on; Mike is such a person. I could not be more pleased with my experience than I am.

I recently signed a lease for a space to open my gym (UFC Gym Blaine) and with Mike’s guidance and experience I was able to find and ideal location with terms that will facilitate success. I went in to this process not previously owning a business nor securing a lease of any type. Mike was patient with all my questions, took the time to answer them and most importantly took the time to make sure I understood the answers to my questions. I truly could not be more pleased than I am.

If you are looking for a business partner you can trust, a partner with values and ethics then look no further; reach out to Mike and visit with him. I am confident you will not need to look any further!

My wife and I had a dream of opening a liquor store. We approached Mike at Acumen as he was recommended by a mutual acquaintance. We met with Mike and discussed our vision. His first question was “do you have a business plan which we did not.” Mike provided us a detailed overview of the entire process from the process of how to obtain funding to purchasing the property we had our eyes on for quite some time.

We used Mike for our business plan needs and he represented us in the purchase of the property which would require a conversion from a gas station to a liquor store. This process took over a year but we were able to close in November.

Mike was so helpful throughout the entire process. He is very knowledgeable when it comes to startup businesses; he seems to know everyone and has a connection for whatever was needed from a business or commercial real estate standpoint. He introduced us to lenders, an attorney who specializes in business and real estate and worked with all involved to make it was a smooth transaction.

We ran into some city and environmental issues which delayed the closing and Mike guided us throughout! We would highly recommend Mike and Acumen Business Solutions for any business or commercial real estate needs!

My family and I wanted to purchase an industrial building and convert it to a commissary test kitchen for various products we were looking to launch. His would be our first commercial real estate experience. We met Mike through a former client referral and interviewed him and one other agent.

We liked Mike immediately. He had an approach that eased our nerves. He knew we were first time buyers and walked us through the process. He also connected us to many city contacts and explained how licensing would work. We also needed a conditional use permit and he assisted us with that process.

We do not see a need to buy another commercial building but if we do, we would work with Mike and Acumen.
