Michael started Stratton Equities in 2017. They detail the beginnings of their company in their Starter Story interview: 
Q: How did you get started on Stratton Equities?
I've been a fluctuating entrepreneur my whole life, but I’ve always come back to the mortgage industry, purchasing my first investment property at 19 utilizing a hard money loan program.
> You're only as strong as your team and as an entrepreneur you need to understand the pain points in every area - and understand how to alleviate them.
Even before I started Stratton Equities, I always knew I wanted to be an entrepreneur and had previously worked in the mortgage industry as well as developed several small businesses throughout my career. Prior to launching my mortgage business; I had been a successful personal trainer while living in Dubai, I had created a hand car wash and detail shop while living in Florida, and even designed a high-end vitamin supplement company in New Jersey while launching Stratton Equities.
I was fortunate enough to travel the world when I was younger, living in 19 countries in 5 years, and although it was exciting, I knew that the only way to obtain the life and success I wanted was to become an entrepreneur in the United States.
