Data Geek. Founder of Altos Research - big real estate data. Bootstrap entrepreneur, data product guy.
Mike is a visionary and one of the most intelligent people I know. (That's why he hired me to work for him!) His passion for real estate data analytics is freakish. One of the reasons I wanted to work with him is because I loved the technology that drove his company, Altos Research. We had a fun group atmosphere to learn and grow in and Mike pushed all of his employees to find new markets and do more for the customer. An excellent experience. Thanks, Mike!
I worked with Mike extensively at Nevis. I felt he did very savvy product marketing. Very good at taking customer input and figuring out a good direction for the company to go in. Nice balance between leaving the details to engineering, but being firm about overall direction and staying on top of quality issues. Good leader. Would gladly work with him again.
DISCERN has partnered with Altos Research for several years. Mike has been a flexible, responsive, and high-integrity partner. Mike has met any challenges head-on and has consistently made himself available to our clients. I recommend Mike Simonsen.
Mike Simonsen is one of a scant few who can legitimately claim to possess an inimitable drive, prolific ideas, and the infallible ability to galvanize an exceptional team, yet remain unfailingly charming and friendly.
In a time when the word “Entrepreneur” is overused to the point of disregard, particularly in Silicon Valley, it’s refreshing to work with Mike, who reinvigorates the title to its former cachet.
I could not live without Michael's product & reports. Altos Research provides quality statistical analysis and reports that make my job easier, improve my business and increase my sales. In addition to providing a great product, Michael is a wealth of information. I often rely on his knowledge and expertise as a business advisor for my startup company. He is trustworthy, innovative and incredibly sharp.
As a satisfied Altos client, I could write a thousand words on what their company provides to me on a weekly basis that allows me to be a more effective and knowledgeable Realtor. But as the CEO, just providing the data, charts, and graphs was only the first step for Mike.
Mike took the time to sit down with me to brainstorm how I could integrate them more successfully in my business. The ideas that came out of that conversation helped me craft a marketing and business generation plan that has grown my business to greater levels. Mike is a creative mastermind and a generous supporter of his clients as well. I am tremendously indebted to him.
Mike's company, Altos Research, (www.altosresearch.com) provides reports on the local real estate market that enable me to clearly and concisely educate my clients and potential clients on our dynamic real estate market.
His reports are my "secret weapon" and allow me to differentiate myself from other area Realtors in a way that is valuable to my clients. I highly recommend his services, and make a point of regularly reading his blog which is also full of good information.
I have recommended Mike's service to other agents in my office, and the smart ones are now using it as well.
