On the transaction side we can handle your Brokerage, Financing and 1031 Exchange needs. On the financing (mortgage) side, we have the experience, knowledge, understanding and years of close ties to banking and lending institutions that other real estate brokers just don’t have. The strategic and proper use of debt is a critical component for maximizing returns and accelerating wealth growth.

Realty Yield stays actively engaged with our clients’ in between Sell/Buy events. The proactive, ongoing management of owned real estate assets is imperative to achieving your best possible results over the holding period.  We recommend an annual property portfolio review/analysis to fine-tune strategies, make timely adjustments and evaluate the proper timing of redeploying invested capital (equity).

Many of our clients have been with us for over two decades.

Mike has been what I was looking for in a commercial realtor. He has the unique ability to apply financial numbers to a project and not let the emotions of a property cloud the analysis. Working with Mike has always been about good communication and he does a great job. When you do finally find a property worth pursuing he is not pressuring you to make the offer and get the commission. It’s more about the long-term relationship. He reassured me that if he does a good job on this deal I will probably be back for more and sure enough I am in the hunt again.

We were so pleased with Mike’s handling of the sale, purchase and financing of our real estate that we referenced Mike as a contact for our children and our attorney if we should die and the children were to be left with the apartments. We knew that Mike would be honorable and not take advantage of them in settling our real estate holdings.

I have had the privilege of having a close personal friendship with Mike Carlson for nearly 30 years. As a friend, Mike is a standout. He is a loyal, honest, considerate, and supportive individual who has the ability to see and understand things from another person's perspective. Mike's candor and business savvy merely scratches the surface of his character. As he would for me, I would do anything to help him or his family.

Cory Carlson was instrumental in the acquisition of our four plex. His analysis skills, professionalism and productive communication while searching for our investment provided my wife and I confidence through the entire process. His connection with local lenders and understanding of the principles of finance prove Cory really is your one-stop investment broker and advisor.
