Born and raised in North Vancouver, and having lived in North & West Vancouver, Vancouver, and Burnaby, Mike offers a depth of localized knowledge that simply can’t be taught.
Born to a family of bankers, Mike spent 5 years working in the banking field early in his career, laying a solid foundation for his understanding of financial institutions and lending practices. But before eventually launching his real estate career, Mike quickly established himself as a leader in the field of Security, Community Safety and Crime Prevention. After achieving a Bachelor's Degree in Criminology at Simon Fraser University, with a focus on Crime Prevention through Environmental Design and building design, Mike worked as a provincially-licensed corporate security consultant. This involved drafting proposals, negotiating contracts and providing high-level consulting services on major security and crime-prevention projects for corporations, government agencies, hospitals and transit systems. Recognized in the industry for his astute analytical skills and communication abilities, Mike was then recruited to the provincial Ministry of Public Safety & Solicitor General and federal Justice Canada, where he spent 5 years overseeing major crime-prevention partnership initiatives and community funding programs (including 3 years in managerial roles).
Mike’s passion for Real Estate developed quickly after he began investing in property himself and it wasn’t long before this interest finally drew him away from the public sector to begin a full-time career selling residential real estate.
As a professional Realtor, Mike has excelled in the business, achieving the RE/MAX Platinum Club Award in 2007, one of the highest sales volume awards offered by RE/MAX of Western Canada. In 2011, he received the prestigious RE/MAX Hall of Fame Award, recognizing his consistently high level of sales achievement throughout his career. His professional style and strong relationship focus make Mike an instant success with his clients and provides him the ability to successfully navigate difficult situations with ease. Because 90% of Mike’s business comes from existing clients and their referrals, there is little doubt that his clients are happy. And ultimately, this is the best measure of any Realtor’s success.
