Michael Pink founded MAP Real Estate in 1986. He grew up in Chicago and attended The Latin School. After graduating from University of the Pacific, he spent 5 years in Albuquerque. Michael returned to Chicago and married Sharon Porter, his wife and business partner of 30+ years. In 2007, he and Sharon founded Investing In Communities®, a free web-based platform that consumers across the country can use to turn their typical real estate transactions into extraordinary ones. IIC enables consumers to support the charity of their choice using part of their broker’s commission, without that costing the consumer even a penny. For example, the buyer or seller of a $300,000 home could give their charity an average of $1,500 – for free.

Nate has worked with a variety of nonprofits and start-ups on capacity-building, business development, and community engagement. He has a Masters in Urban Planning and Policy from UIC and Bachelors in Business Psychology from Miami University.
