Michael Foret chose real estate as a career at an early age. His father is a lead investor in purchasing and refurbishing properties into rentals. Michael often worked on fixer-uppers as a young man, painting interiors and exteriors and serving as a site gofer. From these early experiences, Michael gained firsthand knowledge of the home renovation process and its costs. He also found a true love for real estate.
Michael grew up in New Orleans in the Lakeview neighborhood. After Hurricane Katrina, his family moved to Grapevine, in the Dallas area. He returned to New Orleans as a high school sophomore at Holy Cross School, then completed his education at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, earning a BA in business administration. Michael has returned to the Lakeview area to build a career in real estate.
Athena Real Estate was a natural choice: Michael wanted a mid-sized brokerage where agents work collaboratively to share information and root for each other’s success. He also appreciated Athena’s high level of administrative support for documentation and marketing.
Outside the office, Michael spends time in the gym pumping weights or visiting with family and friends.
