Professional Experience

Mike is part of the Bill Lister team, #1 in sales for 2011 for the Los Gatos office which is the #1 office in sales in Santa Clara County and #3 in the Nation.  Mike has been one of the top brokers in the area for over forty years. Combining this vast experience with a passion, integrity, high energy and a great attitude, he has achieved results that could only be viewed as extraordinary. The reason for his rarely matched success is hardwork, an unshakable commitment to his clients, and a determination to put the client's interests first. He has accumulated a large clientele over the years of satisfied clients.

Some of the other ingredients for his success are an innovative marketing plan combined with superb pricing and advertising strategies. Marketing is done through email, Facebook, Twitter and the internet, using the latest technologies, as well as classified advertisements in the local newspapers and magazines. Using the computerized office, with company server connected desktops, and wirelessly to an IPad and IPhone, Mike is able to produce optimum efficiency. Escrow tracking, client communication, and market analysis are all managed by a state-of-the-art customer relations platform and staff. 

"Mike not only helped me buy what is really the home of my dreams," says Roger Black, creative director of the @Home Network, "He worked within my budget, handled all the negotiations (resulting in considerable savings) and personally followed through on every step,  the inspections, the loan, and necessary repairs. Most impressively, he did not stop after the sale was closed. He helped me find contractors and other services until I was comfortably settled in my new home".
