I've helped people buy and sell real estate for 23 years.  Technology has constantly changed and reinvented the real estate industry.  Digital photography was just being introduced in the industry when I started, today I can make a video of a home using a drone and other advanced video equipment.  I can then have 100,000 people watch the video of that home and I can choose who watches it!  It's an exciting time to be in the business but with all the changes in technology, the most important ingredient in real estate has never changed.  Quality customer service is at the core of what I believe in.


"Mike is a cut above. His self-produced videos and professional grade photos had 7,000 hits in a few days on u-tube and social media. This is how to market a property in today's world. Mike is a leader in the industry. Besides all that he's responsive and professional in all interaction with his clients"  Zillow Review
