After working for the Versace Family in Sedona fell in love with Hospitality. Upon leaving his home in Sedona he returned to his hometown in 1993; BeDillon's Restaurant, a small start-up restaurant, was a great place to hone his skills and meet his future. Eventually moving to The Property to help with private events, he found that with Chef Ramos and the Jackson’s it was the perfect storm of ideas and fun.
Michael purchased The Property located at 1251 W. Gila Bend HWY in 1974; the paperwork read just that, “The Property located at...”, thus the name became 'The Property' upon marring Nancy a few years later. Michael moved out of the old house and they began working to make the facility a dining experience for Casa Grande. Work had been started and the kitchen added before Michael had acquired the space, so, with work done by themselves, friends and only a few hundred dollars they opened in 1983. Great success followed through the years; BeDillon's Cactus Garden and Restaurant opened and they rebranded The Property as a Conference Center, catering only to private special events.
