A Colorado Springs native, Mike MacGuire, a Partner/Owner of The Platinum Group, Realtors, has built a twenty-seven-year career in real estate. After transitioning from his work with finance, Mike sought a high-energy field that would challenge his entrepreneurial spirit while allowing him to serve others. Naturally, real estate made for an ideal fit. Since earning his license, Mike has carved out an impressive track record, last year generating $43 million in production. Over the course of his multi-decade industry tenure, he’s established a proven reputation for honesty, follow-through, and value that lasts long after the closing table.
Today, Mike leads a tightknit team of the top Real Estate Brokers in Colorado Springs. His team caters to the greater Colorado Springs region—from Woodmoor to Broadmoor and everything in between. Mike consistently manages to drive roughly 90% of his business through repeat and referral clientele—a tribute to the authentic relationships he forges along the way. In measuring his success thus far, Mike’s professional style is driven by patience, integrity, and forthright communication. “It is truly all about looking out for my clients’ best interests ahead of my own,” he explains. “I never have an expectation of time, because it’s all about the timing that makes my clients most comfortable. I’m honest and direct. I never push or rush—but I always make sure my clients are well prepared. I don’t see what I do as sales. I consult and advise and help people make educated decisions.”
To keep in touch with his wide network of past clients, Mike stays connected through traditional means, like birthday cards, but also makes an effort to add value to his relationships for the long haul. To accomplish this, he sends out a vital, informative newsletter to continue educating clients on market trends and relevant data. He also remains a resource for buyers and sellers long after the transaction is complete. From advising on renovation options to suggesting vetted contractors, Mike continues to fulfill his role as trusted advisor.
When it comes to listing properties, Mike’s marketing efforts are comprehensive and speak to his attention to detail. “Buyers are using technology to eliminate and select, but more often than not—to eliminate,” he says. “That’s why you can’t cut corners. You’ve got a split second to catch a prospective buyer’s attention.” To make the most of those first impressions, Mike enlists professional staging services, professional real estate photography, and drone video work to ensure that listings are immersive and striking in their clarity. Likewise, he ensures that online access to listed properties is straightforward and easily accessed so that no buyers are deterred.
To give back to his hometown community, Mike is involved in a variety of local charitable efforts, including the Colorado Springs Rescue Mission, Catholic Charities, and Marion House. He also plays an active role in Peak Producers, a group of the top 10% of area brokers who focus on collective giving—from completing clean-ups along roadways and sponsoring families in need, to volunteering at the local soup kitchen and donating to charities that provide assistance to community members facing hardship. In his remaining free hours, Mike most enjoys fly fishing, the occasional round of golf, and exploring Colorado’s rugged mountain communities. “Being outside and taking in the all the sightseeing and history of our state is my absolute favorite pastime,” he says.
Looking toward the future, Mike plans to continue growing his imprint steadily, with hopes to build on existing relationships and use his role as an agent to serve his community at large. Now, with twenty-seven years of intrepid experience behind him and a mindful eye on the path ahead, Mike MacGuire considers the aspects of his career he values most. “Every real estate transaction is as unique and different as the people involved,” he reflects. “I love the challenge of finding new ways of doing what we do, but most of all it’s important to recognize that 95% of what we do as agents is manage one of the most stressful, emotional times in a person’s life. Being there to guide my clients through, so that when we close they’re grateful we were by their sides—it’s so rewarding.”
