About Me

Michael Parks

Residential Real Estate & Distressed Property Specialist




First I would like to commend you for taking the time to research the person that will be helping you with your real estate needs.  Most people never take the time to find out who they are working with, what skills they possess, how long they’ve been in the business, if they’re a full time real estate professional, and what services they offer.

I’ve been licensed in the real estate industry for over 14 years.  I attended college in California for business & real estate.  I started my career with Coldwell Banker in California back in 1998.  I initially began my business working with residential home buyers & sellers on traditional single family homes and a few small investors.  I learned a great deal from many of my investor clients during my early years in the business and later used that knowledge to further my personal success in real estate.  I truly love the art of real estate and helping people succeed in their real estate goals.  This passion led me to become a very well respected professional with a solid reputation in the industry.

The second chapter in my real estate career brought me to Las Vegas Nevada.  I came to Las Vegas originally back in 2000 when I had my first home built here.  This was the first new home I had ever built and was originally purchased as a vacation home.  However after a few years I found myself spending most of my time here in Las Vegas.  During this period of time I was involved in many real estate investments & development projects in the US and overseas.  I formed a real estate development company and was actively structuring development projects for myself and other investors.  After some careful thought I decided to obtain my real estate license in the state of Nevada and rebuild my real estate career with Prudential in Las Vegas.  I’ve since become a top producing agent and achieved various industry awards for production over the years.

As of 2012 I’ve decided to form my own real estate firm ‘Las Vegas Housing Experts’ and begin a new chapter in my career.  I’m very excited about this new chapter and I’m looking forward to maintaining a well-respected company built on integrity and my fundamental philosophy of always doing what is right for my clients.

I have a very fundamental outlook on real estate and investing, which most of my clients find refreshing.  Since I love almost everything about real estate, it’s more of a passion than a career.  I like to coach my clients and help them make educated decisions with all their real estate investments (whether buying a single family home or an apartment building).  I believe in the art of sharing knowledge and showing people how to look beyond the newspaper headlines to understand the real estate market on a deeper level.  My goal is to help people find their own personal place in any real estate market no matter what the current economic climate may be.  Everyone’s situation is uniquely different so I try to encourage people to embrace those differences and put together a plan that best fits their personal situation.

I’m at a place in my career right now where I’m able to enjoy the work I do and choose which clients I decide to work with.  Having acquired knowledge over the years from real life situations I can guide my clients through all the things they won’t find in a real estate how-to book and help them find a place to grow within any market. I have also been extremely committed to helping struggling homeowners find & understand the available solutions to their current housing troubles.  I’ve successfully helped many homeowners throughout the short sale process and I can assure you that there is definitely light at the end of the tunnel.  I’m happy to say that many of the homeowners I completed short sales for in recent years have already become homeowners again.  I take great pride in making sure that all my short sale clients have the ability to become homeowners again.  The American Dream may have hit a bump in the road for many of us but in time we will recover and become stronger in the process, so don’t lose hope.

It was a pleasure introducing myself and I look forward to helping you, your friends, and your family with any real estate assistance you may need now and in the future.
