Mike Wolson

Licensed Real Estate Broker

Growing up in the Chicago area, Mike Wolson earned his undergraduate degree from Michigan State and then attended law school at DePaul University. His studies supplied him with sharpened negotiation and communication skills, and after graduating and passing the bar exam, Mike began working in the recruitment field.

Mike’s experience with the recruitment firm taught him valuable lessons in entrepreneurship, marketing, and negotiation tactics. His work allowed him to help people while simultaneously providing for his own family. Mike eventually started and grew Chicago Recruiters, a search firm that specialized in placing professionals in Legal, Finance and Information Technology. 

Fast-forward a few years later, and Mike unexpectedly found himself a widower with toddlers to raise on his own. As everyone with children knows, balancing a demanding job and family life is a precarious balance, but this time prepared Mike for his real estate career. He wanted to extend his work into a more client-focused approach with hands-on tactics and strategies.

Real estate combines his strong passion for helping people with his extensive core skill set of business savvy, marketing, contract drafting, negotiation, and analytic evaluation. Mike has always been a competitive individual, and real estate has helped him nurture that drive into a professional stance. Each time he facilitates a client’s journey toward accomplishing their real estate goals, it feels like a win. 

Not only has real estate been an ideal avenue for Mike to channel his desires and passion for working with people, but it has also come with unexpected joys. Many of his clients have become lifelong friends. While those friendships might not have helped him fine-tune his golf game or enhance his culinary skills (he’s open to admitting he’s not the best at either), he is confident that those relationships are the reason his business has continued to evolve. Today, Mike ranks in the top 1% of Illinois Agents.

Outside of work, you’ll find Mike talking someone’s ear off as to why the Chicago Bears are better than they appear or how the Spartans will fare in March Madness regardless of their season record. A hands-on dad, Mike can usually be found with one of his kids or at Life Time Fitness.
