About Our Team

Larry Nisson, Owner

Larry has been actively involved in residential real estate since 1979, when he purchased his first rental home. Over the years he has developed a keen sense of how to operate and manage single family homes in an efficient and professional manner. His experience has centered on providing high quality homes and exceptional service to his tenants, and he treats each house as if he was living there.

Larry is also an executive coach and uses his business background to constantly try to improve on how Rental Homes of Ann Arbor does business. He has also been very active volunteering in the Ann Arbor Community, providing pro-bono advice and coaching to various non-profits in and around Ann Arbor. Larry resides in Ann Arbor with his wife Lucie.

Michael has been involved in real estate for thirteen years. He has hands-on property management experience and is currently involved in all aspects of acquiring and developing new homes. Together with Larry, Michael strives to make sure that RHAA tenant’s are extremely satisfied with their renting experience.

He is currently serving as a Board member for the Shelter Association of Washtenaw County, a local organization that focuses on helping the homeless in the community.
