If I had to sum who I am in a phrase, it would be "I say what I mean and I do exactly what I say." I'm Michael P. Steverson Sr., a Real Estate Professional and Owner of Warrant Realty, Inc. The above phrase sums me up because the values that have defined my entire life, honesty, respect, integrity, and professionalism allow me to do just that; say what I mean and mean what I say.
I'm a home town guy who was born and bred right here in Hampton Roads. After graduating high school from Booker T. Washington, I enlisted in the United States Coast Guard in 1982. I served this great country for 31 years reaching the highest rank in my field. My time in the military enhanced my values and gave me a great sense of service; service to country, service to the Coast Guard, and most of all service to my fellow man. I have been blessed with the support of a loving family and the strong bonds of true friends.
My real estate career began in 2006. My initial intent was to get into the business strictly as an investor. While I was in real estate school, I realized that I wanted to do more than just buy and sell investment property for personal profit. I saw an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others and to continue doing what I had done for so long as an active military member, serve others. Real estate would be come my second career. After graduating real estate school, I went to work for a small company in Virginia Beach. During my time there, I was able to help several people with their real estate needs. I understood that my clients needed help and that it was more than just a real estate transaction for them. Being able to provide help to people who really need help is what i enjoy the most about this business.
My military career was filled with several advancements, promotions, and achievements. Becoming the owner of Warrant Realty, Inc. was a natural progression. Personal and professional growth, setting and reaching goals is something that I'm used to. Along with my close friend and business partner, Richard Barbee, the goal of Warrant Realty Inc. is to be the best real estate brokerage in Virginia. As stated in our company mission statement, we aim to provide quality real estate services through the adherence of our principles of honesty, respect, professional and personal integrity. It is through these values and beliefs that I am confident Warrant Realty will achieve its goal. We work for our clients, not ourselves. At Warrant Realty Inc. we make business personal.
