Mike Harness Bio
Real estate is a major investment for most people. That’s why I believe in paying attention to the details and listening to your needs. I will serve you best by using my lifetime of experience in the real estate industry to help you realize your vision.
As a second-generation Realtor, I was born with a passion for real estate. I have been working in the real estate industry since 1978. I’ve worked my way up from cleanup boy on job sites to Real Estate Broker/Owner. I have supervised home rehabs, overseen development and construction projects, and worked for residential and commercial clients as a buyer’s agent and a seller’s agent.
Nothing beats the fulfillment of seeing my client’s needs met and satisfied. I love the process of helping people buy, sell or rent properties.
I have been married to my beautiful wife, Sherry Miles, for over 25 years, and was delighted when she moved from the finance world to join me in real estate. In addition to enjoying time with our friends in the Fort Bend Optimists’ Club and caring for our two miniature schnauzers, we volunteer for an animal rescue organization, housing dogs until they find a “Forever” home. So far, we have helped 13 dogs find new families.
