Born in Alexandria, VA, Mike Burchard grew up very athletic, playing baseball, soccer and football. After a short two years of playing College Football in Virginia for James Madison University, he transferred to the West Coast to finish his degree at San Diego State University with a focus in Finance.
Mike was back and forth between the East and West Coast for the majority of his early adult life. Post-grad, he worked as an agent and broker with Re/Max in the Washington Metro Area for a decade before transferring back to California to start a non-profit in 2001. After the non-profit work, Mike started a web development company that focused on a social media platform. Then, in 2008 he started Pure Hair Extensions, the Eco Friendly Hair Extension Company, which he still owns, based in Santa Monica. In addition to his entrepreneurial spirit, Mike is an inventor and has patents pending in the US for hair extension products.
In early 2014, Mike made the decision with the support of his family to move to Park City full time, where he had been vacationing extensively since 1998. Park City has quickly become home to Mike, his son Colin, and wife Meghan, where they enjoy the outdoors and all the activities that come with it, all year long. If he isn't helping someone out with the purchase of a home, you can usually find Mike cooking, swimming, doing yoga, hiking, fishing, or of course skiing!
Mike's unique set of skills with starting and running companies makes him a great addition to Summit Sotheby's International Realty. He looks forward to building relationships and helping you find the perfect property for your needs.
