Mike Collins, a Real Estate veteran of 44 plus years. In the past and prior to relocating to Paso Robles, he had his own offices in Southern California with nine Real Estate office and two Escrow companies under the name of Collins & Watt, Inc. and did business and was well known as C & W Realty. During this time Mike was a member of many Boards of Realtors, a member of the Building Industry Association Marketing Division, Certified Arbitrator for the California Association of Realtors, Bankruptcy Trustee and manager for several banking institutions. His company successfully sold over 10,000 properties during his 35 years in business. Looking for a slower way of life he and his wife sold their Southern California holdings and planned to retire to San Miguel and grown wine grapes. He developed over 20 acres of vineyards and thoroughly enjoyed his new life "after retirement". About 8 years ago he sold his Fox Run Vineyard, even though he enjoyed it very much, he missed the interactions of being involved in real estate sales. A college graduate, Mike earned his degree and did graduate work at the University of Miami. He is a proud sponsor and member of the Alumni Association for UM. A few years ago, Mike and other wine grape growers realized the need for a group to represent them in selling wine grapes and to provide support for each other and they formed the Independent Grape Growers of Paso Robles. Each is very active in the association and serves on the Board. If you are looking for experience and knowledge in all areas of Real Estate, contact Mike and he'll be glad to help.
