Michael F. Healey
“It’s about building lasting relationships.“
Michael Healey founded The Healey Company in 1995 dedicated to building successful real estate development and construction projects. His extensive expertise in real estate finance and construction analysis has become the company’s greatest asset. The success of the company has been built on his dedication to the goals of clients, investors and business partnerships.
Prior to establishing The Healey Company, Mr. Healey was a residential real estate portfolio manager for Westinghouse Electric Corporation’s financial services unit. Upon his departure from Westinghouse he began building his own residential portfolio. It was then that he realized how hard it can be to find a quality general contractor. After a short time of dealing with the frustration that comes with typical construction practices, he set out to create a company that would be held accountable for the entire process. But, more than that, Michael wanted to make the process an enjoyable experience for his clients. “Your home is a special place, and creating your dream, quite literally from the ground up, should be an enjoyable process.” says Healey.
Mr. Healey has a degree in finance from Pennsylvania State University. He is a former board member of the South Side Local Development Company, a community-based economic development agency in Pittsburgh’s historic South Side, serving as Executive Vice President and Vice President of Real Estate Development for many years. Mr. Healey also chairs the Finance Real Estate Policy Committees for the Diocese of Pittsburgh’s Prince of Peace Parish in South Side.
SERVING THE PITTSBURGH COMMUNITY SINCE 1995
The story of The Healey Company is uniquely woven into the renaissance of Pittsburgh’s South Side neighborhood. This riverside community was once a teeming industrial epicenter of factories and homes. In the last decade it has transformed from an industrial urban community into a magnet for cultural and architectural innovations.
For Michael Healey it began with a one-hundred-year-old building on Sarah Street that he converted into a luxurious pillar of what was to come. Nearly twenty years later, the neighborhood, as well as The Healey Company’s portfolio of accomplishments, has inspired new buildings and businesses that compliment the Pittsburgh spirit of preservation and innovation.
Among the company’s achievements are 150 properties in the South Side with 27 of them owned by limited partnerships managed by The Healey Company. In the past decade the company transitioned from real estate development projects into a general contracting and property management company. To date, the firm’s investment and development operations have acquired and improved over $10,000,000 in real estate. Rehabilitation projects include Greater Pittsburgh Area, and encompass urban and suburban properties.
When Michael Healey began the company he did it with the support from neighbors, friends, and family. Now the company thrives and strives amongst the growing number of clients that soon become friends and trusted acquaintances.
Our company can only be as successful as the members of our team.
It is our philosophy that we are better able to manage the construction process, affect efficient construction costs and maintain and expedite the construction schedule by performing large portions of the work with our own equipment and personnel
