Duvernay Properties, LLC was founded in 1986 when Mike Duvernay purchased his first rental property in Portland at the age of 26. That first property was purchased as a two-family home, but with some investigation of the records at City Hall, Mike discovered that the building was actually grandfathered as a three-family building. After owning this first property for a couple of years, Mike added a two-family home to the company’s holdings. Duvernay Properties has been in business ever since, eventually purchasing, leasing, and managing multiple condominium units in the Portland area. Over the years Mike has represented countless owners of residential and commercial rental property, working with them on the successful leasing and management of their properties. If an owner decides to sell his property, Mike brings his extensive knowledge of the local rental market to the transaction in acting as the broker selling the property for his client.
Mike is a long-time member of the Board of Directors of the Southern Maine Landlord Association, an organization committed to safe, responsible, and knowledgeable property management. Mike is also a past Director and current member of the Maine Apartment Owners and Managers Association, which functions at the State level working to influence Maine’s landlord-tenant laws. Through his affiliation with these organizations, Mike stays informed and current on landlord-tenant law, State and municipal building code changes that may affect leasing activity, property management requirements in the state of Maine, and the ever-changing town-specific requirements for rental property. Additionally, he holds a Single Member Manager designation from the Community Associations Institute, a national organization dedicated to providing education and professional resources to property managers working with condo associations.
Mike has been a real estate broker since 2000. He is affiliated with Regency Realty Group of South Portland and he represents buyers and sellers in the greater Portland area.
