Stephen (Steve) Mikels  Affl. Real Estate Broker

Real Estate Listing Division

Steve is no stranger to real estate. For a little over ten years, I have been, and remain, a state licensed general contractor. I have built homes and worked with many people in helping them find lots, designing a home, and building those dreams to become a reality. A few years ago, I became very interested in buying a larger piece of property. I searched the Internet, ran down many agents to ask questions, with little help, and began following the auction block. WOW! It made my head spin! I finally decided, I wanted to know, “how this whole real estate world turns” from an agents perspective. So, I attended real estate school. I love real estate! I have always been awe struck at Gods canvas. Now, I am in a position to help others find their ” little piece of heaven”! I like getting out and “walking” a piece of property.  I enjoy helping others make their dreams a reality. I have done this for years, but now, I can do it from start to finish. If you are looking for someone to assist you in finding the right property or you are wanting to sell the property you have, whether it be to downsize or get a larger spread, I can assist you! We are problem solvers here at EK Auctioneers. I study the retail and auction market! I put “boots on the ground”! I will enjoy and appreciate that opportunity to do so.. Let me do what I do, for you! You may contact me at stevemikels@gmail.com  or (865)755-6958
