Michael Kaplan

Vice President

Following a nearly 20-year career in the hospitality and restaurant industry, Michael made the transition full-time to commercial real estate in 2020. Beginning in Las Vegas, NV, at Logic Commercial Real Estate, Michael quickly adapted to his new industry, starting in Project Leasing. By his second year in brokerage, he expanded his book of services to include Investment Sales, with a dual focus on both acquisitions as well as the disposition of retail and office products. Michael made the move to Venture Commercial in 2022 after he and his wife relocated to the Dallas market in late 2021.

While at Venture, Michael has quickly established himself in the local commercial real estate community with his continued focus on retail Investment Sales and Project Leasing. In just his 2nd year in Dallas, Michael made the esteemed list for D CEO Magazine’s Power Brokers list and was asked to serve on the North Texas Commercial Association of Realtors Board of Directors.

Michael and his partners take a hospitality-driven approach to commercial real estate, which emphasizes a more personal and communicative approach to the brokerage by focusing on long-term advisory relationships.
