Broker Biography

Michael Greene (505) 820-0163


I lead Sam Goldenberg & Associates (SGA), New Mexico's oldest and most successful business brokerage and the City of Santa Fe's "Best Small Business of 2015." Supported by financial analysts, transaction coordinators and marketing associates, SGA has served as the Gateway to the Land of Enchantment since 1983. We consistently sell more businesses than any other business brokerage in the state.

I bring experience in transactions, negotiations and sales to SGA. After graduating from Harvard Law School, I practiced mergers and acquisitions in southern California, presided over a network of New Mexico commercial real estate firms, and co-founded a successful business consulting firm with a portfolio of national clients.
