Have you ever received a knock at the door at two AM from someone saying that your cows are running down the road? Michael Langford experienced this while growing up on a dairy farm in the Pacific Northwest.
“There are few jobs like working on a dairy farm. It’s one of those occupations that is so dependent on the people running it that it commands all of your time and energy,” says Langford. “Living on the farm for the majority of my childhood had the biggest impact on my work ethic.”
Because no one around Langford was ever in sales, it was a foreign concept to him. That was until becoming a car salesman at BMW made him rethink his outlook.
“I learned to help people at a higher level, with excellence through a process,” says Langford. “I sort of felt called to get into real estate. Now that I have been doing this for the better part of a decade, I’ve found that serving in buying or selling clients' homes is much more rewarding.”
Langford recalls his time with an older widow named Sam who was tired of her retirement going down the rental drain. He spent months searching for a home close to Sam’s family and helping her regain hope until receiving their offer acceptance call. She still lives in that house and loves it.
“My job is to add value to the people,” says Langford. “I get to serve people in the community that are walking through a major transaction in life. That’s a lot of weight to bear at times. But if done correctly and at a high level of excellence, it’s extremely rewarding.”
Langford is grateful to live in Central Texas. He enjoys hill country hikes, Lake Travis sunsets, and raising his children here. He resonates with the saying: “I may have not been born here, but I got here as soon as I could!”
