For immediate release: June 30, 2021

MEDINA, OHIO June 2021 – Michael Knerem has been named Development Manager at Pride One Construction.

He was very entrepreneurial at a young age and started in real estate at the age of 15 by partnering with a company who flipped single family homes.  Michael started interning with Pride One initially working on job sites sweeping floors. He returned to Pride One the next two summers, the first working in land development/project management and the following summer working in development. 

A graduate from Highland High School, Knerem went on to The Ohio State University where he graduated with degrees in finance and real estate.  While at OSU, Michael competed in many real estate competitions, some being global against the top schools in the world. The largest was at the ICSC convention in Vegas and he got third place behind University of Guelph, Cornell, and Wharton.

Upon graduation, Michael took a position with another company but quickly came to the conclusion that he missed the family culture and opportunities at Pride One is now back where he belongs working full time in real estate development.

Michael enjoys spending time with his family, playing golf and is an avid Browns fan.

Welcome back Michael!  We missed you and glad you’ve returned! 🙂
