Mike was born and raised in Battle Creek, Michigan (Cereal capital of the world!) where he attended Lakeview High School. While still in school, he landed in Peoria, IL when his father was relocated to the area through his company.
While his daughter was young, he decided to be a Stay At Home Dad and eventually began to tend bar on evenings and weekends. “After all, they are only young once, and I didn’t want to miss a moment.” Now that his daughter has started school, and his older boys are attending high school – Mike felt like his days were lacking meaning. He wanted to choose a new career path that would fill his day, but also a career that would be challenging, exciting, and allow him to thrive. Being a thill seeker, Mike says it is best when he is challenged day to day, and even sometimes hour to hour to keep himself busy! If there is a challenge, he intends to conquer it.
After talking with multiple brokerages in the area, Mike says “AMRE really stood out from the crowd.” Mike spent a number of weeks speaking with the team’s Sales Manager, Frank McCloud learning about the structure used at AMRE. “AMRE’s mindset and mentoring program is like no other.”
“In my short time here at AMRE, I have learned a plethora of information, far too much to list and I am anxious to learn more. I appreciate how everything is a team effort, and not about solo performance.” Mike also goes on to say “The ABUNDANCE of support from everyone on the team is mind blowing. It really is a SUCCEED TOGETHER environment. I have to say I have never in my life felt more welcome and set up to succeed as how I have here.”
We asked Mike what advice he would give to someone who is thinking about starting a career in real estate…
“It is very challenging, competitive, fun, and sometimes overwhelming – BUT if you are lucky enough to have a great support system, both at work and at home, you’ll have fun while doing it.”
Welcome to the AMRE Family, Mike! We can’t wait to watch you grow and experience what it’s like to obtain your goals and set even bigger ones.
