A native of Los Angeles, Michael Valeo earned his degree from Brown University in Rhode Island. After graduating, he returned to Southern California and began a career in the entertainment industry. At 27 he started his own talent management and production company, which he built into one of the premiere boutique companies in the business. When he sold that company and moved to Palm Springs, he focused his business acumen and passion for real estate into a new venture, starting a vacation rental management company and investing in Palm Springs real estate. Michael quickly learned the nuances of the Coachella Valley real estate market and the ins and outs of investment properties in the Palm Springs area. Michael is a firm believer that the key to successfully guiding clients in real estate investments is a combination of deep knowledge of market trends, both locally and nationally, and exceptional communication and service. In a market that is more than fifty percent second homes and investment properties, his experience running successful vacation rentals gives him a unique perspective and knowledge about success with those properties.
