Born and raised in Miami Florida, Michael is proud to say he is a Florida native. As a graduate of the University of Central Florida, Michael soon began to plant his roots in the Central Florida area. Michael began his real estate career in college, first by partnering with brother Joe La Rosa to sell residential real estate. Although this was an exciting introduction into the Florida real estate market, Michael was anxious to take on more of the industry, so he and his brother Joe began planning a new company. Within months of their decision to expand, Michael and Joe had successfully opened and began managing their own real estate company, La Rosa Realty, LLC.
