About Micah’s Career

Micah began his professional career as a financial advisor for Merrill Lynch in Atlanta, Georgia and moved to Destin, Florida to assist in opening a new branch. It was at Merrill Lynch where Micah met some of his greatest mentors, including Nancy Kline, William Kline and Ted Densmore. Each of them had something different and significant to teach him while he was there.

After leaving Merrill Lynch, Micah knew 3 things: He wanted to stay in Destin, Florida, he wanted to start his own business, and he needed that business to have a recurring revenue model. That’s where starting RealJoy Vacations came in. RealJoy Vacations is a full-service vacation rental management company whose goal is for their owners to enjoy their second homes, but also make as much money on their investment as possible without having to lift a finger! Now, Micah is the CEO of both RealJoy Vacations and Vacation Rental University.
