About | 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 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 received the Honor Society award for a number of years, recognizing my involvement in our industry and community. I am consistently in the top 20 of all 1300 Realtor Members of GACAR in sales volume and have sold over $80 million in sales. Thank you Gainesville!
