Mike Bails, REALTOR®

The Specialist

It’s not hard to see why this REALTOR® is the master of his craft. Mike is part of The Bails Team which leads the Corridor in total home and property sales, and represents many of the best new construction home builders in the area. Since 1999, he’s been selling real estate and has previously served as a long-time member of the Board of Directors for the Iowa City Area Home Builders Association (HBA), including as Past President—a position that only other two full-time REALTORS® have ever been elected to.

Mike met his wife Angie while attending the University of Iowa, and they’re a match made in real estate heaven—Angie owns a rental property management company, Brotherton Investments. Mike and Angie have two children, Mariah and Caden, and their family lives on an acreage in Solon, the living embodiment of "Urban Acres." When they aren’t working, the family enjoys spending as much time as they can on the Coralville Reservoir Lake and at their cabin in Montrose, Iowa, where they camp, fish, ride ATVs, and have a great time together. 

What Clients Say About Mike Bails

“When it came time to sell not one, but two homes for my grandparents, I did not hesitate—I knew it had to be Mike Bails. He is knowledgeable as it relates to the area, was able to sell both houses in record time, and understood the history of our homes and the sensitive nature of the move (downsizing due to move to senior living community). Mike and his team were always quick to respond to questions we had and made the whole process extremely easy for us. I highly recommend Mike and his Urban Acres team! ”

— Mary Hagensick
