Mike Wilen BIO

Mike Wilen is Senior Advisor at Phoenix Commercial Properties, an industry-leading commercial real estate company in Raleigh North Carolina, representing landlords, tenants, buyers and sellers in commercial transactions.

Mike has always been fascinated by the interaction between people and their environment, but his interest in commercial real estate didn’t begin until he was a Psychology student at the University of Michigan. In a negotiation class, he was assigned the role of listing broker in a mock commercial real estate transaction and suddenly realized what he was meant to do after college. Mike decided to tailor the remainder of his course work towards his brokerage career, studying decision processes and picking up a minor from the Ross School of Business.

Combining his newly discovered passion for commercial real estate with a background in marketing, Mike relocated to the Triangle in 2014 to begin working as a broker for Phoenix Commercial Properties. As a Senior Advisor, Mike has a firm commitment to care for each client by actively listening to their goals and doing whatever is necessary to turn those goals into a reality.

Mike has a driven and persistent work ethic coupled with a strong desire to serve his customers and make a lasting impact on this industry. Mike can assist clients in all sectors of commercial real estate including office, industrial, and retail, but he specializes in land transactions. He serves on the membership committee of the Urban Land Institute and is very active within the Urban Land Institute Young Leaders group.

When he’s not serving his clients, he loves exploring the Neuse River, relaxing in the outer banks, tending to his vegetable garden, and spending time with his Plott hound, Shelby.

Mike Wilen and his team at Phoenix Commercial have certainly been a pleasure to work with. Mike has provided us with excellent service from leasing renewals to working with new and current tenants. We appreciate the flexibility he provides us in working with our tenants. He is honest and forthcoming and I am sure those traits are not lost on potential clients. I highly recommend Mike and his team.

Mike Wilen gave very attentive service and prevailed to find out what several other brokers from the big national firms could not.
