MICHAEL TALBOTT​

MANAGING PARTNER

After graduating from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with a bachelor’s degree in accounting, Mike worked with Kenneth Leventhal, CPA’s and ultimately became the comptroller at Daon Development / BCED (Bell Canada Enterprises Development), a multi-billion dollar Real Estate firm. In 1989, he started his own development company.

Inspired by his father and brother, both home builders, he developed and built multiple residential communities throughout Orange and San Diego Counties between 1989 and 2002. He then tried his hand at hotel ownership in Las Vegas. For 18 years he was the owner-operator of a 225-room Hotel property in the bustling area between the Strip and the LV Convention Center. Mike also had the opportunity to build and operate a 200-unit gated apartment complex on 11 acres in North Las Vegas.

Seeking a new frontier, he relocated to Boise in 2018. Mike holds a commercial IFR multi-engine pilot license and enjoys fishing, e-biking, cooking, gardening, golfing, spending time with his wife, Cindy and being Dad to grown sons, Nathan and Jack.

LOU EARLABOUGH

Partner

Lou grew up on a ranch outside of Cushing, Oklahoma. Spending his days with his studies, playing sports and riding horses, Lou went on to earn his degree in business from Oklahoma State. After graduation, Lou spent time as a marketing representative with the Armstrong Cork Company before entering the world of real estate and home building. The concrete industry eventually caught Lou’s attention and after more than 10 years of serving as a V.P. and General Manager for Standard Concrete, upon being recruited in 1981, Lou and his wife purchased a concrete plant in Montebellow, California in 1993, selling the plant in 2011.

Subsequently, Lou and Mike Talbott, having been friends for many years, became partners in a small Las Vegas hotel and condominium project. After the sale of the hotel, Lou and Mike established Vida Properties and are excited to contribute to Garden City’s growing popularity and vitality.
