Mike is a focused, aggressive real estate investor, who takes pride in avoiding banks to buy investment property. Mike realized early on he MUST have a strong foundation to grow quickly and safely. Mike has reviewed many property management software programs only to discover they fell short of what he needed. Mike has spent thousands of hours tweaking and researching Quicken and QuickBooks Pro. His method is getting the results that he needs. In May 2002, Mike was invited to be a featured speaker at a regional conference of CPAs and the rest is history. His simple laid-back street level teaching style is easy to understand and benefits all levels of investors, from the beginner to seasoned veteran. Successful investing utilizing tenant tracking and effective property management and bookkeeping techniques enabled Mike to retire in March 2000 after 13 years as a Louisville Police Detective. He was featured in Money magazine, June 2001, in the article "Can Real Estate Make You Rich?". Mike Butler is a Kentucky licensed real estate broker, a realtor, member of KREE, and a charter member of NARPM.
