Current responsibilities

Michael Schulte, a Vice President in our Hampton Roads office, joined JLL in 2017 bringing with him over a decade of Commercial Real Estate experience. He is currently focused primarily on building the JLL Retail Platform (representing Owners, Landlords, and Tenants) and sourcing investment sales for institutional clients. Furthermore Michael is using his experience with land acquisition and entitlement to bring several national home builder clients into the Hampton Roads, Richmond, and Williamsburg markets by sourcing large tract and infill lot opportunities.


With over a decade of commercial real estate experience, largely in retail activity, Michael is a great asset to his clients. Most recently, Michael founded and ran a real estate development company where he was responsible for overseeing acquisitions, management and performance of a portfolio that included retail, medical office and multifamily properties. He also negotiated leases on behalf of the portfolio for national retail tenants. Prior to starting his own business, he was with a family-owned, commercial real estate firm in the Washington D.C. area for more than eight years.
