Mike Schwartz is a native New Yorker who graduated from UCLA and taught high school in both Los Angeles and New York before gaining his real estate license at the age of 26. As someone who has always loved dealing with the public, numbers and analysis, and sales going back to elementary school this was a natural career choice.
Mike began his sales career in Santa Monica, where he was a consistent top producer with Coldwell Banker for over a decade. He and his family relocated to Berkeley in 2015 and he carries the unique experience of having sold real estate in both Los Angeles and the East Bay. This enables him to move forward reflecting an understanding and knowledge base of different customs within the industry.
Mike has been in management since 2016 and as earned a reputation as someone who always goes above and beyond for the agents in the office. Mike joined Compass in January of 2018 and considers himself incredibly fortunate to be a part of the Compass family and in line with the mission statement. He feels he has truly found his place in the world. As a sales manager within Compass' Oakland and Berkeley locations Mike does his best daily to ensure the Compass Entrepreneurial Principles are living themselves out. He is inspired by all of them, but especially Dreaming Big, Moving Fast, Being Solutions Driven, and Collaborating without Ego. These principles allow for an office to always have an agent friendly vibe and flow with positivity.
Additionally, Mike consistently does a deep dive analysis on data to both keep a pulse on the market and help the agents grow and expand their business.
He is proud to be a non-competing manager and always stays in consistent communication with the director of risk management and broker of record to ensure proper communications within the guidelines and requirements of the DRE.
Mike and his wife Joanna met during their second year of college and are the proud parents of two boys; Ethan (10) and Blake (6). They are homeowners in Berkeley and love to embrace the culture of the East Bay each and every day.
