Mike began his real estate career while still in high school. He was taking night courses at Pensacola Jr. College so he could take the real estate license exam as soon as he turned 18. After a year full time and more courses, he applied for the Florida Real Estate Brokers License. In 1977 at just 19, the Pensacola Board of Realtors recognized him as the youngest real estate broker ever in the state of FL.
He opened his first real estate office at the age of 20 specializing in VA, FHA and Farmers Home administration new home sales. At 27 he opened his second real estate business in the FL Keys specializing in condo sales and rentals, new home sales and construction as well as condo association management.
After several years selling for Fairfield Communities in Virginia and South Carolina he was recruited to NM where he brokered resort land and condos for approximately 20 years before returning back home to Gulf Breeze, FL where it all began. As a kid Mike grew up in the FL panhandle hunting, fishing, scuba diving and water skiing. These days Mike's passion is his family and Life on the Water.
