Real Estate Agents do not all operate the same. It matters who you choose. Not only can it be a frustrating experience to choose the wrong agent -- it can be very costly. Mike's commitment to his customers and his profession is unsurpassed. He is always willing to put his money where his mouth is by making past customers available to speak with potential new customers.
Raised in Boston and New York until the end of his high school years, Mike is no stranger to urban communities or the beautiful southeast United States. He attended the University of Tennessee and graduated from East Tennessee State University with a BS degree in Business Management.
After college, Mike spent two years in Swaziland, Africa with the Peace Corps as a small business consultant to the local tradesmen. Not only did he have to teach the locals about commerce and finance but he learned valuable skills in communication and negotiation. It was a fascinating cultural experience and still plays an integral part in his life and business in so many ways.
Following this time, Mike worked in resort management, including director of ski school operations, and spent many years with Bauer Nike as a sales territory manager. Fewer sales training opportunities are as in depth as those provided by Nike. As a leader in its industry, Nike not only taught Mike great selling skills but also has given him a great background in branding and promotion.
Mike has been a Realtor for nearly a decade and has continued to focus on his commitment to be the best. He is often attending advanced courses on financially distressed properties, bank owned investment opportunities, cross cultural negotiations and marketing luxury properties.
Whether it's a skilled negotiator, a master communicator, a financial analyst or just a sounding board for good investments, it pays to choose Mike Barrett.
