The consummate professional, Michael Archbold (Assosciate Broker, REALTOR, ePro) brings a diversified background to the world of real estate. Born and raised in Fort Wayne, Mike graduated Wayne High School in 1992. He received bachelors degrees in Accounting in 1997 from Indiana University and Information Technology in 2005 from Indiana Wesleyan University. Mike comes to United with more than 16 years of experience in sales and accounting. He began his career in real estate in 2000 as an investor. Mike believes the business side of the equation is only part of the answer. He states, too often people buying or selling homes do not believe their agent took the time necessary to understand their needs. Archbold goes on to say, “I believe in a personal touch. I sit down with my clients and work together with them to formulate a plan of attack. My buyers receive regular updates on home search activities. Sellers receive feedback on preparing their home for public viewing to maximize appeal and receive feedback from open houses and showings. We work together to get your home sold in the shortest time possible.” When not selling homes, you might catch Mike playing on the local music circuit. A well-known local musician, he’s an avid guitar player.
Why Does United Realty, LLC, Stand Out Among the Competition?
Simply put: Relationships. We pride ourselves not only in our professional service but more importantly in the personal touch we bring to our business. Has an agent/lawyer/contractor/vendor ever treated you like you were just another paycheck? The reason our clients come back time and again and refer all their friends and family to us is because they know we are part of the family.
Genuinely caring about the people we serve enables us to do things other agencies can’t. Rest assured, we will ALWAYS have your best interest at heart and work vigorously to get you the best deal possible on your home or business. The relationships we build with our clients enable us to work 100% by referral. The reason we are able to give top notch service to our clients is because our clients refer us a constant stream of quality family and friends to assist in their real estate needs. While other agents are out making cold calls and chasing “potential” leads, we are freed up by our referral base to service our clients like no other broker can. We are never too busy for your referrals!

United Realty, LLC – A Brief History
United Realty, LLC was formed in June of 2006. The owner began his real estate career in 2002.
Managing Broker and Owner, Christopher Spurr, rapidly grew tired of forfeiting a substantial portion of his earnings to large brand name companies. Mr. Spurr recognized most clientele didn’t require the large offices that went along with working for one of these companies. He quickly decided there was no need to help pay for those excessive expenditures, so Mr. Spurr decided to venture out on his own. As a true entrepreneur he found that a majority of his clientele enjoyed working with a smaller boutique company because they were getting the service they deserved. The clients realized throughout the negotiation process that they were dealing with a seasoned professional, rather than a newly licensed agent.
The latter was critical in Mr. Spurr’s success because the real estate industry has historically experienced exceptionally high rates of turnover. Many agents with a past history of solid production and many new agents wash-out of the business within the first two to five years of practice due to the exorbitant fees associated with the real estate industry. Unfortunately, many of these fees could be avoided had the larger companies allowed the agents to keep more of their earnings. Hence, Mr. Spurr set out to provide personal mentorship for new agents entering the business and drastically reduce the fees often plaguing veteran producers.
The advent of cell phones and the internet has made the big-box real estate companies largely outdated. The World Wide Web and the ever increasing sophistication of technology has largely leveled the playing field for those micro real estate firms like United Realty, LLC. At United, we have all of the tools many large brand name firms have, and often times more. We have the same direct access to the Indiana Regional Multiple Listing Service (IRMLS) just like the large firms, we use the EXACT SAME CONTRACTS as the larger nationally recognized firms, and hold membership in both the Indiana Association of Realtors and the National Association of Realtors. Moreover, operating as a micro or boutique real estate firm allows us unparalleled flexibility in making rapid technology decisions or company wide rollouts, aiding in a better experience for our clients.
Chris is a graduate of Indiana University and Indiana Institute of Technology. His background in business and graphic design helped him take that leap of faith and turn United Realty, LLC into the success that it is today.
