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.

Since moving to the Triangle and joining the Phoenix Team in 2014, Mike has had the privilege of helping business and property owners big and small across all sectors or commercial real estate – retail, industrial, office and land. He coaches start up businesses opening their first location and multi-state franchisees opening their one hundred and first. He assist national corporations in the disposition of excess land in addition to humble families with zero real estate experience seeking to unlock the value of parcels they’ve held for generations. Landlords with just a single condominium for lease as well as coast to coast portfolios have trusted him to secure their assets by sourcing carefully vetted quality tenants. Some of the industries he serves include food & beverage, personal services, medical, hospitality, entertainment, automotive, construction, manufacturing, distribution, and non-profit. While the majority of his listings are located in and around Raleigh-Durham-Cary CSA, his North Carolina real estate license allows him to assist his buyer/tenant clients with their needs across the entire state, from Murphy to Manteo!

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. He serves on the membership committee of the Urban Land Institute and is very active within the Urban Land Institute Young Leaders group. He also volunteers through various area non-profits including Habitat for Humanity, Wake County Boys and Girls Club, and Raleigh-Cary Jewish Family Services to name a few.

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.
