He is also a registered Real Estate Agent with the Real Estate Board of Ottawa-Carleton and a registered Mortgage Broker.
Mike is working on adding new rental supply to the market by creating new purpose built rental apartment development in the Ottawa and Southern Ontario areas.

Prior to leading CLV Group, Mike McGahan worked at Regional Realty for five years. He then followed this by opening his own real estate and management corporation, Commvesco Group, in 1992, which he ran for 6 years prior to merging with Levinson-Viner Group which ultimately became CLV Group.
Mike values his clients and recognizes that trust and integrity are the driving forces behind operating a successful real estate business. Mike’s ethics were inspired many people, including the late Ron Kolbus and Jacie Levinson, who touched lives through their commitment to community service.
