About Me

I was born in Durham, NC in 1965 and traveled around the States with my family while my Dad served in the United State Armed forces, we finally settled down in Chapel Hill were my dad taught neurosurgery at UNC. During my father’s life I must have looked at what felt like a million properties, after all buying real estate was his hobby. After high school I moved to Boone, NC to attend Appalachian State University.

After graduation I pursued my passion for cycling and opened Magic Cycles Bike shop in 1993. I had two daughters in the nineties and then twins with my amazing wife Julia back in 2011. I started racing bicycles back in 1986 and raced competitively on and off road for over twenty years. During this time, I logged tens of thousands of miles in the high-country riding just about every road and dirt trail in the county.

I have also bought and sold a number of my own properties as well as managing several rental properties. Combining my love for riding bicycles and passion for real estate it was only fitting I became a Realtor. Feel free to look me up at Magic Cycles for any of your cycling needs and now that I have joined the team at Allen Tate Realtors®, I would be more than honored to assist you if finding your dream property here in the High Country.

What People Are Saying

Jane Cruce

Michael was extremely helpful and attentive to our needs. We live 2 hours away from where we purchased our new home and he was very accommodating with our schedule. He followed up on every question we had from the time we met him through after closing on our home. He is very familiar with the Boone area and aware of the market in the surrounding areas. Mike is a great guy and you will enjoy working with him! I highly recommend Michael Boone as your realtor! You will not be disappointed!
