Mike Vogel's journey to becoming a real estate agent was a natural progression from his prior career in sales and customer service. After 15 years of selling software to human resources and payroll companies, while buying and selling real estate on the side, he took his understanding of sales and customer service and decided to apply it to a real estate career.
After earning his real estate license, Mike cut his teeth at a local brokerage selling condos, but soon realized he needed to look for the right career fit in real estate. A series of introductions brought him to Scenic Sotheby's International Realty, where he is building his own team, The Vogel Group, and was recently joined in its day-to-day operations by his wife, Sarah.
Hailing from central Florida, Mike has been coming to the area since his family purchased its first beach house in Blue Mountain Beach. After a short time living in Texas, he and Sarah, and their children, Andrew and Norah, decided to make the Emerald Coast their permanent home.
Today, he works closely with buyers and sellers along the Emerald Coast who are looking to maximize the lifestyle and investment opportunities available at the beach. His love of real estate stems from the ability to work his business from anywhere and his desire to help people buy their dream, based on their preferred return on investment. He considers himself a good listener and knowledgeable about the nuances of local communities and marries those traits for the benefit of his clients.
In his free time, Mike enjoys golf, paddle boarding and surfing. You can frequently find him following his kids' sports teams or reading and listening to favorite authors and influential figures.
