Our Team


Mike Falconite

Founder | Owner

Mike Falconite grew up in Cairo, Illinois, where his father was always stirring up some dirt.  Mike’s father, Joe Falconite, owned and operated a heavy equipment company.  Mike took control of the company and moved to Paducah with his family in the 1980’s.  He grew the business to 55 locations, in 16 states, employing over 900 people.  Mike then sold the company in 1995 and never looked back when starting up Falconite Development.  Mike’s motto is, “the more you build, the more you learn.”

When Mike is not looking for the next real estate venture, he is spending his time hunting, riding horses, traveling and enjoying time with his family.  Mike has two children, Nicki Roof and Joe Falconite, plus seven wonderful grandchildren.
