The Mission For My Life Is...
I use enthusiasm, education, and servant leadership to guide others toward positive life change.
Mike was born and raised in the Puyallup Valley, attending Riverside Elementary, Aylen Jr. High, and Puyallup HS. A typical 90's childhood, he spent most of his time outdoors riding bikes, exploring, and playing all kinds of sports. He found his passion with a basketball in his hand early on and he was always around a hoop. Basketball taught Mike to be competitive, respect others through sportsmanship, and occasionally that losing is a good thing. Mike got hired as a shoe sales associate his sophomore year of high school at Champs Sports and found a passion for sales and helping people. He also learned about Up-Selling, where he made a small commission for selling shoe insoles, sneaker protector spray, etc. Entrepreneurship set in, but didn't take hold until after his life changed forever.
Mike was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in 2012 and was in and out of the hospital and completely out of work for 11 months. Upon gaining the strength and confidence to return to work, Mike knew he needed to find a job with flexibility in case flare ups ensued. He also wanted a job where he could interact and serve people; why not Real Estate? Fast forward two years and where the average realtor sells 6 homes a year, Mike is averaging over over 50 per year in his first six years in the industry! He won the 2015 Rookie of the Year award with his brokerage and has built a team that stands on creative content, community, and of course; grit. Mike truly enjoys connecting with people and considers himself the ultimate “Dot Connector”. More importantly, he has great passion for the Puyallup Valley and looks forward to seeing its' businesses thrive. Mike and his family currently live just a mile from the very hospital he was born in! Mike and Mindy have two sons and a daughter and a Golden Doodle named Murphy. He loves to travel, play golf, and can't wait to connect with you!
