Sacramento native, Michael Thomas, has been educated and licensed in Real Estate sales since 2006; however, it wasn't until after his own personal, positive experience with purchasing a home that he decided on residential real estate as a career. Prior to making a full-time commitment to Real Estate, Michael enjoyed 11 years of sales and service in wine industry. - "I love wine and I loved the team of people I worked with, but I was ready to learn, explore and excel in another industry." 

By virtue of his paternal grandfather, a Navy draftsman and talented custom home builder, Michael has a deep-seated interest in craftsmanship, home design and architecture. His own home renovations are a testament to the quality time and effort he dedicates to the investment he made in his first home. This is the dedication he brings to his clients; quality time and effort to find the right fit for each real estate endeavor. 

Michael's solid work/life balance is derived from his ability to prioritize time for education and personal growth, as well as relaxation and time with family & friends; a fishing excursion with his dad and brothers, catching his nephew's baseball game at Dooley Field, or rallying a crew of friends together to take in a Sac Republic Football game. A life-long athlete, Michael grew up on BXM racing, skateboarding, and competitive soccer. As an adult, he adheres to the belief that the most successful and balanced people in any industry have one thing in common; they start their day with exercise. So now he stays active and motivated with Crossfit, cycling, and backpacking with his chocolate labrador, Duke. The occasional Tough Mudder, Spartan Race, and GoRuck challenge keep his competitive side fully engaged.

Mike was great to work with. Knowledgeable and responsive. But I especially appreciated his demeanor. He’s low key which was scythe right fit for me

What a pleasure was to have such an amazing person on our side the entire time. So glad we went with Mike, I couldn't imagine it gets any better!


—Shane Serrano, Citrus Heights

I will recommend Michael Thomas to all my friends and family and will absolutely call him with any future buying or selling needs! Mike is gracious, responsive, informed, and made the process enjoyable every step of the way. I appreciated Mike's honest input and advice and am so happy with my first ever home purchase!


—Emily Martin, Sacramento, CA

Mike helped me sell my first condo and was instrumental in helping us secure our first home as a married couple. He was never pushy and didn't try to get us to buy something just to sell a home. He always listened and was very down to earth. Those are super important qualities I want when I work with a broker. I don't want to feel pressured! Mike researches and knows so much about the Sacramento region. He's always prepared with comparison analysis and makes you feel confident in decisions you make. He also knows when to tell you a home is not right and we should move on. Mike treats every sale/transaction as if it were his family. He's very available, always friendly, never "too busy" to take our call or answer a question. Mike made us feel comfortable the whole way and worked with us, didn't just tell us what to do. Mike is an excellent realtor and I'd recommend him to any of my family or friends (actually a few have used him already!). Great work Mike!! :)

Mike did more than any agent has for us in making sure our house was ready and up to par for the sales market. Mike also worked hard and was able to get us well above asking! thanks Mike!


—Sarah, Orangevale

Mike was/is a great agent and was all ways tentative to my families needs. He went above and beyond when showing us houses and was with us all the way through our purchase of our forever home. thanks Mike!


—Josh - Placerville

We were both new to Sacramento so knowing that Mike had extensive knowledge of Sacramento and its real estate trends really helped ease our minds about the search. He was really helpful at noticing things about the homes we visited; he gave advice when asked for it; he was organized and thorough in the escrow process; he was able to answer all of our questions, which really helped since we were first time home buyers. Mike also came recommended from our Loan Officer as an extremely determined realtor who wouldn't give up on our search and instead would actively be helping us. We found Mike to be exactly what we were promised and are really grateful for how proactive Mike is. It really felt like we were a team and that we weren't alone in this search.

I had the best experience working with Mike. The transaction was so smooth and he was great at communicating what to expect next. Not only did he keep us on track to close but we closed a week early! Amazing! I highly recommend his services to anyone looking for a professional who will give detailed attention to their transaction!!


—Rachel Pardue, Roseville, CA.

The total professional I expected showed expertise at every point in the sale. He knew what to do, when, and why. He explained each step, the pros and cons, of each choice I had to make. And he let me make the decision. Excellent service.

There are few times in my life that I would entrust someone, including a family member, with being responsible for the single largest financial commitment I could make or be involved in. Michael showed great patience with us and our desires of searching for our new home, while simultaneously selling our home of 18 years. I have entrusted my life, physical well-being, with others in my life and career. However, the commitment and concerns for my family's financial future far outweigh my physical well-being concerns. As a result, I was concerned about a bad decision causing unrecoverable hardship on my wife and children. Michael quickly eased my concerns and I can say without hesitation that I trust the most valuable things in my life, my family, with Michael. Although I do not plan on going through another real estate transaction any time soon. I will consider his advice and counsel in financial matters and value his advice and counsel. If anyone is considering buying or selling a home, Michael will be the only person I would refer or recommend them to!

Additional Testimonials

Mike is a consummate professional and skilled in the area of real estate brokerage where it matters most—seeing a transaction through to completion. My wife and I would not be the proud owners of our home that we are were it not for Mike’s engagement with our home search process and were it not for his deeply nuanced understanding of the real estate marketplace. A competitive environment demands a willing and able guide, and Mike is just such a person.

My experience working with Michael Thomas of Lyon Real Estate was nothing less than STELLAR! I enjoyed every moment of it. From the first meeting and discussion of area comps and listing price, all the way through signing the final documents with the Escrow company, Mike was right by my side. He was available all the time for questions, concerns and even pep talks when there were bumps in the road. Michael was able to help me sell my home for more than other agents proposed, and the entire transaction took just under 1.5 months! The process could have been stressful, but Michael took all the guess work out of it and made it seamless for me. He was very transparent with all items that came up and steps in the home selling process. As a first time home seller, I know he was the perfect person to have working with me as I moved through the process. And I’ve recommended him to friends in the area who have the same great things to say. My fiancé and I plan to work with him to purchase our first home together after our marriage. We can’t wait to work with such a calming, educated force in our next home transaction and would highly recommend Michael as your realtor for your next home purchase or sale. Laura Langerwerf

It was a pleasure and relief to have such a professional realtor represent me in the selling of my home. Mike was responsive and informative with walking me through the whole selling process. From the marketing of my home, holding of open houses, communication with other interested realtors, and seeing it through to the end, Mike kept me informed on all of our progress. I would recommend anyone looking to list or buy a home to see Mike first and they will be impressed with his work ethic. Thanks Mike for all your hard work.


—Brian & Kelli Bell

“Mike was great! He helped us sale our house for the price point we wanted. He was always on time and went above and beyond what a realtors job duty indicates. Mike was very active with our house listing and kept us informed of interested buyers, changes in itinerary and last minute visit requests. Thank you very much Mike!”
