Your Local Real Estate Agent - Mike Mason

Working in Real Estate since 2006, I have specialized in the Oakland County market for the past decade. I began my career working with Buyers and Sellers across the region and later joined Arteva Homes, an upscale building company in Metro-Detroit. Recently, I assisted in establishing Arterra Realty as an Associate Broker and have become Sales Manager for Arteva Homes, specializing in new home construction, vacant land, and buyer/seller agent duties for the resale market.

I am a Lake Orion native and currently live in downtown Birmingham. Staying local, I earned a Marketing Degree at Oakland University in 2009, followed by a Masters Degree in Urban Design from Lawrence Technological University in 2012. Past recognition includes: Top Sales Associate Producer (Indianwood Real Estate); Top Sales Manager Producer (Arteva Homes); Michigan Association of Planning Award (received for Michael''s "Mid-Century Modern Design Guideline Manual" that was adopted by the City of Southfield).

Professional memberships include:
- National Association of Realtors (NAR)

- Women''s Council of Realtors (Rochester Chapter)
- 2015 Hour Media Real Estate All Star - Top 5% of all Metro Detroit Agents

With years of experience helping local buyers and sellers just like yourself, I know how to locate the finest properties and negotiate the best deals. It's my job to know about the latest market conditions, government regulations, and upcoming developments — so that you don't have to.

Buyers' Representation

As your Buyer's Representative, we can make the process of house hunting much easier and more efficient than if you did it all yourself. We can help you get financing, guide you to local neighborhoods, help you determine your budget, and prioritize a list of essential features that you need in your next home. We'll save you valuable time by finding the properties that best suit your requirements, and will show you only the most promising ones.

Once you've found a place that catches your eye, we'll look at comparable properties in the area to help determine a purchase offer. Then we'll negotiate on your behalf with the seller to make sure you get the most favorable terms.

It's our job to look after your best interests, and we will do so at no cost to you as a buyer.

Sellers' Representation

Selling a house on your own can be an overwhelming task. There's advertising to plan and budget for, open houses and private showings to arrange, purchase offers to negotiate, contract contingencies to worry about, and complicated paperwork to fill out. Make it easy on yourself by putting your home in the hands of seasoned professionals. We have extensive experience marketing properties and showing them to their best advantage.

First, we'll perform a comparable market analysis to determine the most appropriate price for your home. Then we'll provide home staging advice and suggest landscaping changes that will help draw buyers in. We'll advertise your home through a variety of methods, including local publications and online MLS® listings. We may even showcase your home as part of our site's Featured Listings.

When it comes to negotiating a purchase offer, we'll make sure that you get the best price the market will allow. We'll help you understand contract contingencies and details of the closing process, in addition to handling all the paperwork for you. Essentially, we're here to represent you throughout the entire selling process, and to make sure that your real estate transaction is a positive and profitable experience.
