Stay on top of the market and be service-oriented. Get there first and take care of your client's needs to achieve their goals.”

His journey began as a receptionist, quickly advancing to a licensed sales agent. Shortly after, he became the #2 agent in listings sold and one of the top-selling individual agents in Minnesota. Early on, Mike worked under two of the industry's most successful real estate agents, where he had the privilege of collaborating with some of the most prominent real estate owners and developers in the nation.

Most consumers do not initiate their real estate search on a specific website, such as Realtor.com. Instead, they typically begin their search on popular search engines like Google or Microsoft Search.
A strategic real estate marketing approach involves distributing real estate listings across diverse touchpoints, connecting with potential buyers at different stages of their buying journey. This leverages the power of familiarity to enhance a property’s market presence.
The buyer's journey begins with a click and view of a property.
Once a buyer leaves a detailed property webpage, remarketing begins.
Remarketing acts as a subtle reminder to potential buyers about a property they have previously viewed. They are then retargeted with compelling property ads across various online platforms, creating touchpoints. Wilen formulates the most effective strategy to enhance a property's visibility, creating touchpoints that resonate.
These remarketing touchpoints reinforce a property's appeal while keeping the property front of mind. Through a connected network method across a diverse spectrum of online advertising sites, the property will effectively reach and engage an individual or vast audience who has previously viewed it.
Using cookies and other tracking methods, Wilen’s local and global team coupled with AI, meticulously monitor touchpoint clicks and conversions to decipher the most effective remarketing strategy. A deep dive into analytics ensures optimal buyer impact, assuring a real estate listing is reintroduced to interested consumers and strategically positioned.
Digital marketing experts implement tags to track the progress and success of remarketing campaigns, ensuring comprehensive data collection. Regular performance audits by digital marketing professionals identify areas for improvement, ensuring the strategy remains effective.
These reports can be delivered either bi-weekly or weekly, providing sellers with more informed decision-making based on the amount of property views and inquiries they receive.
In addition, Wilen has built an extensive network of local and global websites to enhance listing exposure and broaden market reach:
High energy, intense focus, and scrupulous business practices bring renewed efficiency, transparency, and unprecedented results to property sellers on a consistent basis:
