I was born in Riverside California in 1946, and moved around the state with my family, as my father was transferred to many locations with the US Forest Service. After graduating from Bakersfield Junior College in 1967, with an AA Degree in Architectural Drafting, I was drafted into the US Army.

     In 1969, I was honorably discharged, and married my wife Joan, who I had  met in junior college gymnastics. We started our lives in Concord California, and we soon had two sons.  I was then employed as a draftsman for a large swimming pool construction company. In the mid 1970's I became half owner of the company, and began setting up several subcontractor in-house trades. In the late 1970's, I left the company to start a new shotcrete company with another partner. Due to the economic conditions of the early 1980's, it became evident I needed to close down the commercial work, and started my own swimming pool design and construction company, in the East Bay community of Danville, California. I had no employees for the first 3 years, and  developed the company into the one of the strongest referral pool businesses in the East Bay. We soon had 11 employees, and added landscaping and home remodeling to our growing business.

I sold the company in 2004, and my wife and I moved to Prescott Arizona, where I continued to buy and remodel homes. Finding out that we were not desert people, we moved back to California in 2008. I continued to remodel homes until 2013, when I decided to sell real estate that I didn't have design or build, and joined Lyon Real Estate in Auburn. My experience in building and managing companies, has taught me the power of a true referral business, and my real estate business is geared to that goal.

   My wife and I enjoy living in the Auburn area, where we are able to hike the many trails we find here. We also enjoy fishing, camping, and our grandchildren. I still manage time to record my own music playing the guitar and keyboards in my studio at our home. Recently we have discovered Scandinavian dancing, and belong to a local performance group.Though it is challenging, we are really enjoying the social, physical, and mental benefits of dance.

Mike helped us deal with a realtor that was not professional suited for job she was attempting to do. We had a deal in the works and she blew it. Mike guided us on to what turned to be a much better deal for our investment. Mike and Joan are personal friends, yet he connected himself professional at all times. He discovered a problem with the property that we finally bought concerning a bankrupt solar lease. He was the first person to discover it he got the answers to the problems that came up with it. I might have been a deal breaker, yet he worked it out to keep the whole thing moving forward.

Mike Hawkins went above and beyond in helping me sell my home. I was incredibly impressed with his professional manner and promptness in responding to my calls or emails! Also, in spite of dealing with a very serious health situation in his family, Mike continued to provide exceptional attention to the details of selling my home. I was amazed! Thanks Mike!

Mike was fantastic. From working with a difficult lender to walking me through what needed to be done with the home after the purchase, I could not be happier with his work. Can't recommend him highly enough!
