Mike Krakower, a second-generation Houstonian, is a consummate professional steeped in business acumen. Upon graduation from The University of Texas with a Bachelor’s degree in Business, he joined his family’s wholesale plumbing supply business. For 20+ years he served as the CEO of the company immersing him in invaluable experience regarding every aspect of the business world.
Selling his company and entering the world of real estate has been a stellar decision. Mike’s CEO background taught him how to identify quality construction, how to work well with people and especially how to be detail oriented in all aspects of doing business. He has a passion for real estate because when a person is buying or selling a home, it is deeply personal. Mike states, “A home has memories that make up one’s world. Helping a client buy or sell their home is more than just finding them a place to sleep. The word sanctuary comes to mind when I think of home.”
Proud to be partnered with the Martha Turner Sotheby’s International Realty brand, Mike stays abreast of the latest cutting-edge technology, focusing on the trends that affect the premier Houston neighborhoods in which he sells. Making his clients as happy as possible is paramount for him. He is hands-on with every detail of a transaction ensuring that things go smoothly from contract to closing. His extraordinary listening skills and good business sense have yielded him an outstanding reputation, which he proudly stands behind.

He has been president for Young Executive of the Wholesale Distributors Association and the American Supply Association.
