Born and raised in Park Santiago, a graduate of Orange High School, and a homeowner in Orange with a vested interest in the community, Mike Hawes has amassed a considerable collection of professional and educational experience. Holding an undergraduate degree in History with a minor in English from UCLA, and an MBA with an emphasis in Accounting from Cal State Fullerton, Mike’s career includes over two decades in the corporate world, a wide breadth of management roles, and management of a $40M business segment for a global technology company. Looking to return to a more personalized approach to business where he could use his expertise to help people and achieve results for his clients, Mike added a real estate license to his repertoire of certifications. Mike takes a purposeful and refreshingly people-centric approach to business, and strongly believes integrity and authenticity is integral to serving his clients. Mike states, “I have always had a passion for helping people and sharing knowledge and ideas. Real estate has been a wonderful way to serve my neighbors, community, family, and friends as a trusted adviser, and to impact their lives in a positive way.” In his free time, Mike enjoys spending time with his wife and three school-age children and exploring with his kids and their dog all the places he played as a child, such as Fisher Park, Santiago Park, Hart Park, and the Orange Circle to name a few. As an agent at Seven Gables, Mike Hawes is straightforward, authentic, and uses his extensive knowledge and professional experience to help you achieve your real estate goals.
