Q & A With Mike:
WHY DID YOU BECOME A REALTOR®?
I have always had an interest in Real Estate, I just pursued my trades first. I couldn't be happier that I made the switch though, I love meeting new people and helping people.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE PART OF SELLING REAL ESTATE?
Buying/selling a home is a huge and important process in people's lives, and it's very rewarding knowing I've done my best to help people every way I can. I get a kick out of seeing my clients around town, too. It's nice being out doing everyday things and running into people you've built relationships with.
WHERE DO YOU LIKE TO TRAVEL?
My wife and I love going to Hawaii as often as we can. Another favourite vacation spot is Barbados.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE BOOKS, MOVIES, SHOWS, BANDS?
Song: Over the Rainbow by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole (because my kids love it)
Book: Old Man & The Sea by Ernest Hemingway
Movies: Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and Captain Ron
Shows: YouTube Sailing La Vagabonde
WHAT'S ONE THING MOST PEOPLE DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU?
I've jumped out of a plane 3 times, bungee jumped, been a landlord, competed in a national public speaking competition - what can I say, I've done a lot! I'm also dyslexic but I choose not to use that as an excuse.
