Michael has been a Phillips resident for over 20 years, but began camping at the lakes and hitting snowmobile trails “up north” almost 40 years ago, as a kid with his family. He has an insider’s knowledge of the lakes and rivers in northern Wisconsin, and especially enjoys fishing and wakeboarding. Deer and turkey hunting are a few of his hobbies, and in 2016 he shot his first bear.
In addition to a love for the outdoors, Mike loves sports and plays volleyball both on the court, as well as on grass and sand. He enjoyed coaching JV girls volleyball for the Phillips Loggers for several years. But wait, there’s more…he’s also in a band, playing bass guitar in the worship band at his church.
Mike and his wife, Jill, live in a house on Solberg Lake just outside of Phillips, WI. They have a Golden Retriever, Nashi, who sadly does NOT like to swim! She prefers running and chasing snowballs on the frozen lake, and is Mike’s constant companion for ice fishing. Mike and Jill were foster parents for 18 months, after which they adopted their 3 children, 2 boys and a girl. The kids have changed their lives, and keep them young!
Mike worked building homes before he started in real estate. He enjoys doing renovation projects around the house, and at their vacation rental cabin business through Airbnb. Through hard work, persistence, and incredible customer service, he has not only survived building up his business in real estate, starting out in one of the worst housing markets in recent history, but last year nearly doubled his sales from the previous year.
Customers say that they appreciate Mike’s friendly demeanor, his knowledge of the 90+ lakes in the county, and his lightning-quick response time. He also offers an added service approach, selling even snowmobiles, lawn mowers, and boats for homeowners if they need help with those other aspects of relocating. Drone photography is also an option for some properties.
