Michael Figueroa was born in New York City. He moved to Tucson Arizona in 1969 to attend the University of Arizona to begin his studies, initially in Chinese language and history, later business and law. In Tucson, Michael worked as a law clerk for a private attorney, an insurance salesman, a title company examiner, and obtained his real estate agent license in 1975 and brokers license in 1979. He formed and grew a private mortgage banking company that was severely hit by the 1987 recession. Michael then experienced multiple lawsuits due to all the issues that arise when a business goes bankrupt. Since 1973, he has self-educated himself on how to buy properties in foreclosure, bankruptcy, IRS and estate tax sales, and how to buy and sell judgments. Michael has been involved in hundreds of foreclosure sales. By 2000, as the economy improved, he syndicated and subdivided land creating building lots and helped to create a development company that raised investor and bank capital over $100,000,000. This was unfortunately also hit by the recession of 2007 that we are still in. In his philanthropic and community activities, Michael has served on the Naval Special Warfare Foundation (Navy SEALs) as a member of the Board of Directors and Chairman of the Investment committee and now currently is an ambassador on the advisory board. He is also a member of the Board of Directors of the Vatican Observatory Foundation which is connected with the Vatican city state where he was a member of the investment committee. He is also a member of the Tucson Police Foundation, owns a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu academy, and served on the advisory board of the Yangtze International University in Nanjing, China. He also is a small claims judge in Pima County, Arizona.
