Mike was raised in Minneapolis, Fridley and Burnsville MN. As a child, Mike had aspirations of being an accountant. Never in a million years did he think he’d stumble into the real estate industry, but you can’t always predict where or when you’ll discover what you’re meant to do in life.
Mike was taught at a young age that if you want something in life, you have to work for it. So that’s what he did. And he worked hard.
As the years went by, Mike worked his way from a busboy to restaurant owner, never wavering in his resolve to become the best version of himself with each career move.
Mike got into the real estate industry over 18 years ago when 9/11 impacted the rebuilt gas pump industry that he was in at the time. He set out to provide an amazing real estate experience for everyone he could help.
As his career advanced, Mike found his stride working with Lake homes, foreclosures, veteran’s, and senior’s. He’s an expert in helping our Senior’s and Veteran’s and earned his SRES® (Seniors Real Estate Specialist) and MRP® (Military Relocation Professional) certifications.
Throughout his career, Mike has earned numerous accolades, including:
• He has obtained the following designations and certifications:
CRS® (Certified Residential Specialist), C2EX® (NAR Commitment To Excellence), ABR® (Accredited Buyer's Representative), AHWD®, SRS® (Seller Representative Specialist), SRES®, RENE® (Real Estate Negotiation Expert), CPRES®, GRI®, SFR®, MRP®, e-PRO®, GREEN®, PSA® (Pricing Strategy Advisor), LEAP®, REDM®, REALTOR®, Five Star REO and Short Sale Certified
• Has sold hundreds of homes in the past 18 years
• Is involved with local senior’s and veteran’s support and fundraising
Mike lives in Ham Lake with his family. In his free time, he enjoys cooking, golfing, playing pool and spending time with his son and daughter.
Mike aims to provide the highest level of service to his clients and takes deep pride in helping them achieve their real estate goals.
