About Me My name is Mike Hastings. I have lived in Gainesville since 1992. My father was career Navy and we moved quite a bit through the years. At eighteen I counted 21 moves. I went to High School in Hawaii at Admiral Arthur Radford High School. After graduating I left because of the high cost of living and real estate. A small home for three quarters of a million dollars didn't seem to be in the works for an eighteen year old guy without a college degree. I came to Gainesville Florida on January 1, 1992 to attend the University of Florida. While attending UF, I was a member and later became Team Captain for the UF Debate Team. My Dad says he hasn't won an argument since I started debating in High School. Sorry Dad, It was even earlier than that. I graduated with a degree in Marketing. As I've learned, you never know where that degree will take you. In college I worked at Burdines (now Macy's at the Oaks Mall) and later Marketing for Quality Cleaners with Greg Johnson. Both helped me hone my negotiation skills and realize how much I enjoyed working with people. Greg was instrumental in helping me finish my degree! My first job out of college was as a Legislative Aide for State of Florida Representative Cynthia Moore Chestnut. It was a great opportunity and a real crash course in politics. The pay wasn't great, but thanks to a few lobbyists I ate well. It was great working with and helping the people of our district. Before sitting for my license in real estate, I worked for three years at Naylor Publications as a sales associate. I credit Naylor for top notch training and for introducing me to many great friends and clients that have made my new career a success. Thanks guys! . As a Real Estate Professional, I am a member of the Gainesville-Alachua County Association of REALTORS, Florida REALTORS, National Association of REALTORS and our local Gainesville Multiple Listing Service (MLS). I am also a member of the Gainesville Chamber of Commerce, the Past-President of the Gator Exchange Club and a lifetime member of the UF Alumni Association. I love Gainesville and believe strongly in supporting my local community and organizations. I continue to support: Gainesville Orchestra, Habitat for Humanity, Equality Florida, Children's Home Society, UF School of Theater and Dance, Alachua Conservation Trust, March of Dimes, Southern Legal Counsel, Gainesville Civic Chorus, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Alachua County Humane Society, Early Learning Coalition, UF's Historic Preservation Program, Gainesville Modern, Historic Gainesville Inc to name a few. I am actively involved in the Gainesville Alachua County Association of Realtors and currently serve on their Board of Directors. I have been involved in a number of committees including the Grievance, Nominating, Leadership, Young Professionals, Business Partners and Community Outreach Committees. I have also Chaired the Grievance and Young Professional Network Committees. I have also received the Honor Society award recognizing my involvement in our industry and community.

Our Certification Process image

Our Agent Certification Process

After completing our initial process of determining an agent's API and then selecting the agents to recommend to you, we personally contact those agents to see if they would like to become certified by us - essentially moving to our top tier.

In order to become certified we need to get their agreement on some very important points:

  • First - they must agree to respond to our customers (you) promptly, and
  • Second - they must agree NOT to charge our customers (again, you) any additional amounts because you connected with them through BestAgentToday.com.

We feel that these items are an integral part of your decision, so we make them part of our decision too! And we're not done yet. Because your decision is based on personality also, we go on to collect lots of additional personal information from them too. Including pictures, resumes, their contact information, and some of their fun facts that you see displayed on our site.
