Getting to Know Mike
I have been an enthusiastic Lake Gaston Real Estate Broker at Lake Gaston since 2003. From 2003-
2018 I was affiliated with South Shore Realty where I have proven to be a consistent multi-million dollar
producer. In 2019 I made the transition to Coldwell Banker Advantage. A native of neighboring Franklin
County, my family and I have owned waterfront property at Lake Gaston for over 30 years. As a full-time
Lake Gaston realtor, I have a down-to-earth common-sense approach along with up-to-date knowledge of
the current Lake Gaston real estate trends. I can be a genuine help to you to in your search for, or sale of,
lake property. I am a licensed real estate broker in both North Carolina and Virginia, so it doesn’t matter
where your Lake Gaston property search takes you—Coldwell Banker Advantage and I can help you
reach your goal.
Prior to selling real estate, I was the owner of a successful trucking company. Gupton & Gupton Trucking
was known throughout Franklin, Warren & the surrounding counties since 1979. Then in 2004 the
decision was made to transition that success into real estate sales, selling the trucking business to work
full time at Lake Gaston.
When not selling real estate, I enjoy spending time with my family and especially my two grandsons. I am
an avid fisherman and will make time in my schedule to go fishing at the lake or at the coast. When the
season calls for it, I’ve been known to enjoy a little hunting too.
I have a genuine enthusiasm for getting to know people. That, along with the experience and knowledge
acquired in Lake Gaston real estate sales, enables me to help you reach your real estate goals. A strong
background in sales has also helped me become a consistent multi-million dollar producer since 2004.
While affiliated with South Shore Realty, I proved to be a Multi-Million Dollar Top Producing Agent since
2005. In 2017 I had over 30 Million Dollars in closed sales. I was recognized as Top Producer not only for
South Shore Realty but for the entire Roanoke Valley/Lake Gaston Multiple Listing Service. I have a
passion for real estate and a proven record of success.
The old saying “a referral is the best compliment anyone could get” has worked. I have been able to build
a successful business through satisfied customers and referrals. Buying or selling a home can be
stressful, so I encourage you to tap into my knowledge, experience & enthusiasm to complete your real
estate transaction. I look forward to hearing from you and look forward to being your Realtor.
Mike responded to our inquiry right away. He came to the house to talk with us . He gave us a positive feedback that he would have no problem selling our house. He had a professional photographs taken that represented our house well. They showed great on the internet.
Our house went on the market and within 5 days we an offer that was over the asking price. The rest of the sale process went smoothly.
I would highly recommend Mike for anything related to real estate in the Lake Gaston area.
Mike is very personable, knowledgeable and easy to work with. He has a home on Lake Gaston so he is very familiar with the lake. He returned our emails right away and was easy to contact even on weekends and evenings. I highly recommend him as a Realtor.
Mike is hands down the best realtor anyone could hope to work with. We were referred to Mike by one of his former clients who raved about him, and Mike exceeded even those high expectations. Mike is patient, attentive, repsonsive, and completely dedicated to helping his clients find success in their real estate journey. His wealth of experience in the Lake Gaston market, having grown up in the area and having been one of the top realtors in the area for many years, is a huge advantage for his clients. Mike's negotiation skills and his knowledge of our preferences and priorities helped tremendously throughout the process. I couldn't recommend Mike more highly, and anyone who is looking to buy property on Lake Gaston would be smart to give Mike a call.
