Mike Klein is an Investment Advisor Representative with Gerber Kawasaki. Born and raised in Long Beach, California, Mike developed an interest and passion for investing by watching members of his family work as financial advisors. He knew that he loved helping people and establishing new relationships so he wanted to find a career that would allow him to do both. He went on to study Business Administration with an emphasis in finance at the University of Southern California, where he was a member of Sigma Chi and part of the Sports Business Association.
After graduating in 2016, Mike spent the next three years working in real estate finance, starting with an advisory role at Duff and Phelps and most recently as an analyst for Interstate Equities Corporation, a real estate private equity firm in San Francisco. Although he enjoyed his time and work in real estate, Mike knew he wanted more of an entrepreneurial career where he could focus on building personal relationships and taking care of clients. This led him to Gerber Kawasaki where he immediately saw the impact the advisors were having on client's lives.
Mike currently lives in Venice and when he’s not assisting clients, he is most likely rooting for his favorite sports teams (USC Football, Lakers, Dodgers) or hanging out with his niece, Cora. He is also an avid traveler and enjoys playing tennis and golf.
