Michael Janis was inspired to become an investment advisor through his personal experience as an investor. He brings a strong desire to provide others with the kind of creative thinking and customer service lacking at many traditional investment firms.
Before joining Doffin, Michael was a real estate broker and investor with Re/Max Commercial Brokerage and Sperry Van Ness Commercial Real Estate Advisors, specializing in investment properties. He has since broadened his expertise to include financial planning and investment strategy. Leveraging his broad knowledge and hands-on management experience, Michael offers unique insights into the investment landscape.
Michael began his career in the advertising industry. He worked at TBWA\Chiat\Day and Deutsch, two of the top agencies in the country, where he managed accounts for major global brands. It is in this role where he honed his superior client service and strategic development skills. However, he left the corporate marketing world in pursuit of his passion for investing. In his free time, Michael enjoys travel, painting, photography, skiing and Chicago sports teams.
Michael is registered as an investment advisor with Madison Avenue Securities and holds Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) Series 22, 62, 63 and 65 licenses, California Insurance License (#OH42746) and a California Real Estate License.
