There with Care

You never know what lies around the next corner in this business. What starts off smoothly, can become derailed. What begins with a stumble, can suddenly hit easy street. In between you’ve likely experienced almost every variation you can imagine.
Yet you keep moving ahead with your clients—guiding them to their dreams.
That’s the same approach that Miguel Garcia loves.
As a REALTOR® with Regal Realtors, Miguel is definitely there with true care for his clients.
“I love knowing the fact that I help out people in any way I can. I’m the type of REALTOR® who works all over DFW. I’ve worked with high and low prices and everything in-between,” Miguel explains. 
“I work in any area and price point. That’s what I want to do … to be the person who will be there for my clients and to help them any way I can.”
Long and Winding Road
Miguel started his adventure in the business in January 2020. Before that, he experienced quite the path.
When he was 21 years old, Miguel moved to the U.S. from Mexico.
“God has blessed me with so much more than what I had asked. Just when I thought life was upside down, God was spinning it 180 degrees to redirecting me to something better,” he recalls. 
“Before I came to the U.S., I lived a privileged life in Mexico. I had no plans for my life. I was just going through the motions. My parents couldn’t get through to me. They cut me off at 21. So I moved to Texas and started working over 90 hours a week at three restaurants.”
Stepping Forward
From there, Miguel took a new avenue ahead, working as an electrician, though he continued working an outrageous number of hours.
“In 2015 I met Denise, the love of my life. In 2016, I changed companies. In 2017, we got engaged, and we bought our first home,” Miguel says. “She was 23 and I was 25. I was so proud of us.”
It wouldn’t be long before he faced a trying chapter. Just a few days after closing on their house, Miguel was electrocuted and broke his arm.
“We were saving up for a dream destination wedding. Anxiety set in when I was home with a cast on my arm. Denise had just started her teaching career,” he remembers. 
“I felt helpless that I couldn’t provide. Plus, the x-rays showed that my arm hadn’t healed right. I went through another surgery.”
New Chapters
As Miguel healed, he and his wife, Denise, got married. There was more unsettling news.
“After the wedding, doctors told Denise she couldn’t have children. I got fired. A short time later, we found out she was pregnant,” Miguel says with a smile.
In 2020, Miguel decided to give real estate on the advice of a friend. He earned his license, and then traveled to Mexico with Denise in March of that year to attend a sister’s wedding. That was the month when the world shut down due to COVID-19.
“When the pandemic hit, we were stuck in Mexico for four months,” he recalls. “When we got back I went to work … I went to supermarkets and put my business cards on people’s carts. In September 2020 I was able to close on my first deal.”
He went on to sell 18 properties in 2020, earning Rookie of the Year honors. From there, he moved on to 2021 and closed $10 million in sales volume. In 2022, Miguel earned his firm’s MVP Award, he finished third in his company, and he received the Flex Agent of the Year Award through his work on Zillow.
“I am very thankful to the people here at Regal Realtors. They have helped me grow in my career, and I appreciate being here,” he says.
Rising Above
Away from work, Miguel and Denise experienced the heartache of losing their first child. However they are blessed and treasured to share life with their 3-year-old son, Miguel, and their 1-year-old daughter, Mila, as well as Miguel’s mother, Isabel Garcia.
“When you think that life is hard and you are at the bottom, God is there for you. Always give thanks. I couldn’t do this without my parents, my amazing wife, and to my children for inspiring me to be a better man.”
In his free time, Miguel looks forward to time traveling with his family. In 2022, he was thrilled to share a trip with his family to Europe.
When it comes to giving back, Miguel likes volunteering at the school where Denise works.
Clearly, Miguel goes above and beyond. 
“A lot of past clients say they think I am so busy … I say please don’t ever think like that. Whenever you need me, give me a call,” Miguel says. “I want everyone to know that I am willing to help friends, family, clients, REALTORS®, regardless of the situation.”
