    IYH 204: Digital Door Knocking with Michael Thorne: The Man, The Myth, The Legend!

    IYH 204: Digital Door Knocking with Michael Thorne: The Man, The Myth, The Legend!

    “I want to be involved in people’s stories, I want to be there for these huge moments in people’s lives – it’s what I’ve always wanted to do.”
    Michael Thorne is keenly aware of the gravity of his chosen occupation. He doesn’t take lightly the fact that clients trust him to be a steady hand – and a source of “compassion and passion” – to hold on to through something as life-changing as a move. His daily motivation comes from “the legacy of the people we’re able to help.”
    Michael’s relationship to real estate has been a lifelong (and family) affair. Both of his parents were agents, and he started working at a real estate office when he was 15 years old. He got his real estate license at 19. Real estate, he says, allows him to be an ambassador for the community that shaped him.
    Michael is known (and beloved) for his curiosity. Michael attributes his notoriety as one of Inman News’ 100 Top Real Estate Innovators to his confidence in two simple words: what if? While his ebullience and fun-loving nature are what make him an esteemed character in the industry, his drive to provide a cutting-edge experience for his clients has made him a pioneer in the expert union of real estate and video.
    Video, for Michael, changed everything. And once you get to know him, you see why. Stillness is not a natural state for Michael, and thus his energy and passion translates perfectly to video.
    Michael uses his expertise in video not only to sell clients’ homes, but also to showcase the neighborhood where he has lived his entire life. “I built my business in North Langley, I built my life here – this is home.”. He now lives 10 blocks from the hobby farm where he grew up, 7 blocks away from the high school he graduated from (his was the then-new high school’s first graduating class), and 5 blocks away from where he began his real estate career.
    Michael sees himself as owing a great debt. Not monetary, but rather the sense of duty to the community that has given him what he calls his “ridiculously amazing life.” His passion for his home town stems from an eagerness for “other people to be able to experience living here, to raise their kids here and have their kids feel about this area the way I feel about it.” And outside of real estate? Michael describes himself as “[living] at the hockey rink, at the baseball diamond,” coaching his kids. “My dream was to be a great dad.”
