High School, College, and University background
Michael Bishop, The Cooler Realtor & 99 Day Realtor grew up in Coshocton County east of Columbus, past Newark Ohio.
College: Attended Ohio Wesleyan University, Delaware, Ohio.
Majored in Economics (BA) with a minor in Geology. Played football and baseball for the Ohio Wesleyan “Battling Bishops” and was a member of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity.
I try to stay active and prefer outdoors to indoors. I play lacrosse a couple times a week with a bunch of fellow old guys in a club called: Old Dogs Lacrosse. We play 2x weekly about 30 weeks of the year and 1x weekly the other weeks. I also occasionally play with a similar club: Columbus Ball Hawgs when they need a “bad goalie!” I also love gardening, flowers, and rehabbing. I do my own work – at least as much as I think I can handle – then call in pros when needed. I love beaches and sun and just relaxing by doing nothing when I get away. I joke and say I’m solar powered but I believe it’s at least a little true! I like bowling, Jarts (yes, not a typo) and darts too.
RE/MAX Revealty is winner of the Central Ohio Better Business Bureau Integrity Award!
WHAT MY CLIENTS ARE SAYING:
Michael Bishop found us our forever home at our price point in the neighborhood we wanted. Our house was on the market one day and had multiple above list price offers. Good communication and quick responses.
Mike made the process of purchasing so much more fun for us because he took care of all of the details with the builder and we were able to enjoy the build process. Because of his work we would certainly use Mike again for future purchases.
I had a great experience working with Mike on buying my new house. He was very professional and being a first time home buyer he was very helpful getting me through the process.
Mike was our realtor when we built our new home in Hilliard. Toward the end of construction when we had a gap between contract price and appraisal, Mike stepped up and negotiated with the builder to meet us half way! So we were able to move into our perfect home for less than the original contract price. It’s not just about how much he knows, but knowing that he truly cares about each of his clients is what makes him unique to this industry. Thank you Mike!
Mike handled the marketing and quick sale of this property very professionally, and he was responsive to any of my concerns as well as the buyers questions. The buyer used VA, so that was an issue more because of the VA’s slow response time and quirks to their process.
I would definitely use Mike Bishop, the 99Day Realtor, again!
