Mike Lagoyda began his real estate career in Los Angeles after graduating from UCLA with a BA in Philosophy. For eight years he was part of a top producing team that covered Beverly Hills, Bel-Air and the San Fernando Valley, originally in an administrative position and the last four years as a full-service agent representing buyers and sellers. His real estate experience also includes an office administrative position with a well-known brokerage in Montecito, CA.
Looking to escape the I-405 gridlock, Lagoyda and his family moved to Sonoma County to continue his real estate career in 2017. "From visiting friends here, I was so attracted to Sonoma County's natural beauty, quality of life and the great school districts for our kids. We moved to Santa Rosa to become part of a close-knit community and raise our children in a great family environment," he said. "It's a great place to call home."
Recently elevated to the District Assistant Manager for Corcoran Global Living in Sonoma County, Lagoyda states, "I love that every transaction is a unique situation with new people, personalities and challenges. Buying and selling a home is often the biggest financial decision of a person's life, and it is rewarding to have the opportunity to help guide our clients through the process."
Mike brings a concierge-level of service to his clients and was attracted to the family feel, spirit of collaboration and commitment to community service of the firm. The new company and community definitely suit him.
Mike's professional background also includes several years in the restaurant business. The former chef was the Garde Manger and Assistant Chef at Amuse Bouche, the only French fine dining restaurant in Simi Valley. He even once prepared the turkey and stuffing for William Shatner's Thanksgiving dinner.
Earlier in his career Mike held an Account Executive position in outside sales for World Wide Packaging in Woodland Hills, CA, which catered to the cosmetics industry. When not serving others, Mike remains a "foodie" and also enjoys hiking, biking, camping and especially loves spending time with his wife and two young daughters.
