Mike Mogavero boasts a notable sales career that spans over 30 years, beginning in technology and landing him in his true passion of architecture and real estate. Over the course of his career, Mike has built a strong global portfolio of high-net-worth clientele. The majority of MIke's transactions occur in the private market due to his market relationships and ability to confidentially connect buyers with sellers.
Mike does not view selling and buying homes as a business, but as a passion, and he serves his clients best with the attention he provides to each listing and each buyer and with the value he obtains for them. Mike is proficient in dealing with complicated deal structures, real estate tax strategies and investment portfolio and development scenarios. His clients also have access to his contacts in real estate law, finance and accounting as well as top builders, architects and designers.
Preparation through a holistic approach to marketing and a precision approach to showing and selling fine homes are all hallmarks of what Mike does best. Identifying properties where home buyers and investors can find beauty and value demonstrate his business approach combined with unique architectural and construction knowledge. His style balances presentation, talented negotiation, and a successful close.
Mike has a Master's degree in Regional Planning and studied Architecture at the University of Oregon. He is actively involved in Austin with executive and personal relationships throughout the local community.
In his free time, Mike enjoys playing tennis, the outdoors and spending time around Austin with his wife, who is a licensed Texas architect, and children who passionately ride horses and share Mike's passion for cars.
Meet Mike's Team
"In one word...amazing! Mike was attentive, responsive and more importantly knowledgeable of the competitive Austin housing market. Navigating the Austin market is difficult in and of itself but being an out of state buyer added an additional complexities to the process. Mike quickly got a feel for my likes, dislikes and what I was looking for in a home and community. and was able to provide insight on areas he thought I would like. Mike's insight was invaluable! We only needed one day to look at properties, and no one can believe that the one and only offer I made was accepted! Mike is now my go to person for real estate!"
"I’m not one to sing praise easily but Mike Mogavero, our Realtor®, has truly been exceptional. We were lucky enough to meet Mike at an open house and we’re so grateful we did. Without him, we’d still be spinning our wheels and wasting time with our prior Realtor®. Buying or selling a home can be very stressful and competitive, and you need every advantage you can get. Mike was our ringer and we are absolutely home happy because of him. We highly recommend Mike Mogavero."
"Mike was great to work with for our sale. He was understanding of our needs while ensuring the sale process continued smoothly. He wasn’t forcing his agenda but ensuring we accomplished our goals. Mike was always available, 24/7. We would be more than happy to work with Mike again!"
Kyle A., W Residences, Seller Representation
"Mike was extremely helpful during the whole real estate process, from identifying potential leads to final closing. Mikes experience in real estate, sales, as well as design and build, provided additional expertise to answer all of our questions and concerns. Mike is friendly, enthusiastic, approachable, honest, and makes you feel at ease and in good hands. He helped us to meet all our requirements (including for our three dogs), assuring that our family would be living comfortably and safely in our new home. We enthusiastically and highly recommend Mike for your real estate needs."
"We are in love with the house that you found us and helped us purchase. The sellers put so much work and love into the home and it is exactly what we were hoping to find. On selling our house, you have been able to market our home without stress and get it sold within hours for more than we had hoped. You have made both selling and buying a home go more smoothly and successfully than any other real estate transaction we have done and we would recommend that anyone considering an agent work with you. Thank you for your hard work. This will be a great next chapter and we are very happy!"
Nice to have someone on your side with the calm when everything is so enormous and stressful.

Mike has gone above and beyond in the entire process of buying and selling our house. I would recommend him 100 percent to anybody looking to buy or sell their home.
