Michael founded Hamlet Homes in 1995 and delivered more than 4,000 new homes in Northern Utah while serving as the CEO.

Prior to moving to Utah, Michael was a division president for 14 years with The Ryland Group, Inc., based in Columbia, Maryland. While in this position, he grew one division into three separate divisions. In 1983, the division closed 75 homes in Baltimore County, and by 1990, they closed just under 1,000 homes in Baltimore and Harford Counties Maryland and Northern Delaware. From 1975–1980, Michael was with Wilmington, Delaware–based Leon N. Weiner & Associates as a project manager and construction superintendent. For six months, Michael took an assignment with Clarence Johnson, Ltd. in Barbados, West Indies to construct a deep-water harbor expansion in Georgetown and to renovate a local airport. Prior to Leon N. Weiner & Associates, he spent three years in the US Virgin Islands as their Director of Construction, constructing a low-income, mid-rise apartment complex as well as multiple single-family detached communities.

In January 2017, Michael sold Hamlet Homes to the four senior managers of the company and he stepped down from his role as CEO in the summer of 2020. Now, in his position overseeing the business operations of Brodsky Built, Michael is responsible for identifying land opportunities that will provide finished lots for builders in Northern Utah. Along with Nick Mingo, he oversees the development entitlement process through local municipalities.

Michael received his bachelor’s degree from Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He is a member of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), Salt Lake Home Builders Association (HBA), and serves on the Executive Committee of the Utah State Chapter of the Urban Land Institute (ULI); previously as the council’s treasurer and now as the Chair of their Advisory Board. In 2016, he chaired the ULI Utah Real Estate Trends Event and was instrumental in converting it from a luncheon event into a full-day program. In 2002, he was one of 24 finalists for the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award. Michael has served on the National Ability Center Board of Directors, served as the organization’s Board President in 2003, and is currently an Honorary Board Member. Michael resides in Park City with his wife Susan, of 35 years.
