Michael Lowes


I’ve lived in some amazing cities – New York and Los Angeles to name a few – but as a Portland native, I knew Portland was the place I wanted to build my career in Commercial Real Estate.

When I came to Capital Pacific I knew I had found a great place. The company combines incredible work ethic, an excellence in the industry, and an amazing sense of community and culture that I have never experienced anywhere else.

What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned?

“Never let your memories be bigger than your dreams”. To me this holds very true. Keep wanting more and keep pushing yourself. You should have massive dreams and goals, I know I do, and it is what drives me every day to keep grinding and create success.

What motivates you to succeed?

Growing up in an amazing family with incredible and successful parents, I’ve known that I want to be able to give my family what my parents have given me.

What do you like to do to recharge your batteries outside of the office?

When I'm not working I like to stay active, whether that is golfing or skiing, I am always on the go. Whatever the activity is, it's a pretty safe bet that it will be centered around a meal - steak or sushi are usually the go-to for me. I'm fortunate enough to have traveled much of the world, and jet-setting to new places will always be a true passion of mine.
