Meet Mike Mason
Mike Mason, Broker | Owner | Realtor, Temecula Valley resident since 1977, graduated from California State Polytechnic University (Cal Poly Pomona), in 1982 with a B.S. Degree in Soil Science. Since then has developed a passion for real estate during his previous careers as a mortgage loan officer after spending nearly 20 years in the Geotechnical Engineering field. During the Great Recession, he gravitated to handling the complexities of Short Sales by negotiating with several banks as an advocate on behalf of his clients, at NO COST to them.
His primary mission has always been to be a resource to his clients. This led him to become involved as an active member of our local association, Southwest Riverside County Association of REALTORS®, SRCAR in 2005. Mike soon learned SRCAR shares this same mission via their clients, us REALTORS®. As stated in their vision statement SRCAR… The Trusted Resource for REALTORS®
This wanting to be a resource motivated Mike to become involved in several committees. See list below. This led to serving as a Board of Director at SRCAR from 2011-2017, which led to a similar position as a State Director for the California Association of REALTORS®, CAR from 2012-2015.
During this time Mike learned the importance of being involved and the necessity of having a presence legislatively in Sacramento and the impact a group of liked minded people ie the “REALTOR® Party” can have. Believing, Home Ownership Matters! A point apparently, Sacramento and beyond needs to hear repeatedly.
Mike’s goal as Broker/Owner of MASON Real Estate has been to create a team of client minded experts, by being a resource, enabling them to make informed decisions as it relates to real estate securing their financial futures.
