I have sold over 340 homes with over 200 million dollars in combined sales within the last 15 years. I am very familiar with all the local areas within the Santa Clara Valley, from schools to the cities themselves, and I enjoy helping to assist families coming here from all over the country and the world. They always know when they call Mike and his Team, they can count on excellent service and continued support whether they are looking to buy now or later, as well as just renting. I look forward to helping you also; just give me a call!
Education and Training
One thing I have always believed in is good education. Coming into the Real Estate business, I wanted to have separation from all the other realtors. So I decided to take classes on Real Estate and graduate from the schools that give distinguished credentials in this business.
Such as the Council of Real Estate Specialists, or CRS, designations—only 4% of all realtors ever achieve this as it a hard course and difficult to complete and you have to maintain certain grades to graduate. There is also the Graduate of Realtor Institude, or GRI—only 10% of realtors ever graduate from this one.
Other designations I have achieved are:
- Relocation Specialists ( With Sirva, Cartus,Graebel, USAA .ect.)
- SRES ( Senior Real Estate Specialist ) Serving the retiring public
- Credit Union Certified Realtor - Serving the local Credit Union Members
- ASP- Accredited Staging Professional
- NAR Green Designation - National Association of Realtors Green Graduate
- SFR- Short Sale and Foreclosure designation
- E-Pro- Technology Program designation
And my favorite one is being a member of the First Cupertino Leadership class of 1987, helping to develop the direction the city now has.
Areas of Expertise
The best way to describe my Real Estate knowledge is to explain what I do:
- Help new arrivals to the valley understand the traffic patterns
- Explain the history of the Bay Area and Silicon Valley, so buyers can understand "WHY" prices are what they are.
- Show buyers the recently sold and pending properties to give some current market direction
- Help Sellers get the best price for their homes, through staging and network marketing as examples.
I have sold old, new, fixer uppers, and extremely upscale "turn key" homes
Having raised three children myself, it gives me great pleasure to now benefit from that in ways I never thought I would. Going to classrooms and talking with teachers now gives me a better understanding on the best schools and what the inner workings are. Being about to impart this information to buyers is invaluable to me. I have had a very rewarding experience with both the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts for many years. And I am currently on the board of a local Credit Union, which gives me a say in the community.
I was born in Long Island, New York, giving me an East Coast experience that has helped me better understand the clients transferring from that area. I have also lived in San Bruno, Foster City, Sunnyvale, Campbell, San Jose, and Cupertino, giving me a perspective on traffic patterns and which areas to avoid at different times better than most, which is information my clients have appreciated more than once. Now with my children at ages 27, 29, and 30, all of which have graduated college and are now on to lives of their own, I have more time to devote to better serve the clientele I have accumulated over the years.
Communities I serve
As stated previously, I know the peninsula and Santa Clara County very well. Living in Cupertino and having my kids go through the Monta Vista School system there has also given me a unique perspective on areas and values. I can show clients where to get the most value and not pay an arm and a leg for it. Once I sit down with a client for a short time, my real value is shown. Try it and see.
"Dear Future Clients of Mike Uhri, We enthusiastically recommend Mike Uhri as a Realtor. Mike is a savvy and trustworthy realtor who is very dedicated to his clients. As first-time home buyers, we needed a lot of extra support and explanations, and he patiently walked us through every step of the process. He never tried to pressure us into any decision but rather provided us with all of the necessary information we needed to make an independent, informed choice. He made himself available whenever we needed him, and his assistance made it possible for us to purchase our dream home and save money along the way."
-Greg and Rebecca, Client
"Mike is highly reliable and he always returns with reliable answers for whatever question you have. More than realtor work he always looks for whatever would be a benefit for his client and provides suggestions based on that for buying and selling. If you are looking for a realtor, I highly recommend Mike for the reliable and professional service."
"Mike Uhri is a competent and professional realtor whom I highly recommend. He went above and beyond to help me through the difficult process of buying and selling my house when I needed it to be sold for well over the asking price. His extensive knowledge, thoroughness and patience was much needed and appreciated."
"I highly recommend Mike Uhri and was thrilled to have him as my Realtor and business partner in selling my San Jose home. I really appreciated having a collaborative partner guide me through the entire process. In addition to Mike's knowledge of the local market, and his many years of real estate experience, he also helped me in many ways; it seemed that no issue was too minor or mundane. You will be in great hands!"
"Mike, Roy and I are so grateful for the time you spent with us yesterday to educate, inform and inspire us to move forward with the next chapter in our lives. You are a consummate professional and we are glad to have found you."
-Anita and Roy, Client
"" What separates Mike from other agents is that when he sold us our house, instead of saying congratulations, he said Thank You ""
-Terry and Tina, Client
""Mike was fantastic to work with! He was very patient and walked us through the kind of terrifying process of getting our first house. He was always reaching out to us with new houses as they came on to the market and even when it might have helped him get a sale quicker, he would recommend against certain homes as we'd do walkthroughs when he noticed issues that we hadn't even seen. If/when we need to move and get a new house we will definitely be reaching out to Mike first!""
"Mike is the ultimate professional, easy to work with, knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him to any of my friend and family!"
