The Shields Group, a veteran owned and operated real estate brokerage, is led by the most sought after real estate agent in the Bentwater community.
Branching out from its parent company, Texas Real Estate Partners, The Shields Group is being headed by the enterprising and very affable Mike Shields, who has a long and enviable relationship with a broad cross- section of clients ranging from homeowners to property developers.
One of the major projects Mike has had the pleasure of working on from its inception was the lush and beautiful Bentwater Development, a 1,400-acre master-planned community nestled between two breathtaking, protected natural environments—the 22,000-acre Lake Conroe and the 160,000-acre Sam Houston National Forest. According to Mike, Bentwater redefines the lake resort lifestyle and proudly takes its place as the only private, gated, waterfront community in Texas with 54-holes of championship golf, a country club, a yacht club and marina, a racquet club, fitness center, day spa, pro shops, and two private islands.An expert and resident of Bentwater, Mike has sold over 40% of the entire development and is locally famous for selling nearly every property in the community at least once. There is even a street named after him in the subdivision. Mike is known as the “resource” person by everyone—from buyers and sellers of homes—as the go-to person for information and guidance in this masterful development. To make this work, Mike, a graduate of Michigan State, has assembled a team of true professional real estate agents for this very difficult but lucrative high-end market. Mike, who has a very personable personality, is a man who loves shaking hands and making friends easily, and he promises to lead an expert group of realtors to offer his unique style of services.
As a veteran, Mike has served the Houston area in real estate needs for 28 years, and he is poised to lead his team towards representing buyers and sellers in all phases of the real estate transaction. The Shields Group will operate as a boutique agency to allow a customized journey to its clients and agents, seeking to educate their clients so that they will be more comfortable in understanding the steps of their transactions. And not only are they very familiar with pricing real estate, having seen the growth and being involved in determining the highest and best use for properties, but the Shields-led team will be striving to provide their client the advantage in any market with knowledge and cutting edge technology.
“I am the first person homeowners call about anything, and it is always my pleasure to connect them to the proper resource. My relationship with my clients goes beyond the 45-day close period; it's a life-long term relationship,” said Mike.
Mike has four grown children and lives with his wife of 25 years in the very same Bentwater community that he has helped establish.
