Downtime with Mike Aubrey

Mike Aubrey is the TV Host for HGTV’s Powerbroker and is a licensed realtor in Maryland, Virginia and Washington DC – where he is the team leader of Mike Aubrey and Associates for Re/Max Metropolitan Realty. Mike’s real estate prowess and obvious charisma earned him guest spots on HGTV’s House Hunters and Get it Sold. Sensing a star in the making, HGTV created Real Estate Intervention, which capitalized on Mike’s no-nonsense way of delivering bad news to homeowners, and aired for 5 successful seasons. 2013 saw the debut of yet another Mike Aubrey vehicle: Powerbroker. This time Mike worked with buyers and was able to flex his considerable muscle as one of the best negotiators in the business.
