Mike Johnson : Deeply Rooted in Laguna
Bringing unparalleled experience to this rarified market
Mike is a lifetime Laguna lover . Born and raised in the San Gabriel Valley , Mike ’ s first beach memories are of 1960 ’ s Laguna Beach from family vacations when he mistakenly thought his mom was pointing out hippos , not hippies .
Those memories planted the seed that drove him to make his way back to Laguna Beach in adulthood , moving to town in 1992 . Educated as an engineer at UCLA , Mike worked in materials research by day and worked towards an MBA at UCI at night . Having always been a little bit left brain and a little bit right brain , he moved on from Mike Johnson engineering and spent over 15 years helping start-up businesses get off the ground and building two businesses of his own .
A closet amateur architect , Mike brought together his love of the unique properties that dot the coast and a strong desire to help people when he took the leap into real estate 14 years ago with local legend Ray McAfoose .
An innate entrepreneurial nature , combined with his extraordinary professional experience , interpersonal skills and work ethic , have enabled Mike to achieve an extraordinary sales record in this competitive coastal market . A standout in the industry since he began his real estate career , Mike ’ s logical and analytical insight have helped him to position his clients advantageously against the competition ; a valuable edge with winning results .
