Michael Colaninni

Michael graduated from Florida State in 2001 and immediately started RentSpace Management, a real estate investment and management company. Since 2001, he has been involved in over 270 real estate transactions, consisting of acquiring rental properties, fix and flip projects, wholesale deals and new builds. His conservative growth strategy has allowed him to build a sustainable real estate portfolio capable of weathering economic shifts.

He then founded Park Place Funding in 2015. Using the real estate knowledge and experience gained through his own personal experiences, Michael’s goal is to provide an honest, transparent funding option to real estate investors with a desire to grow their real estate portfolio.

Michael is still personally involved in acquiring single-family and multifamily properties throughout Central Texas.
