Cypress Homes & Realty


Mike Blank

Started Cypress Homes in 1994

Mike started Cypress Homes after realizing his passion for real estate while working for Century 21. Mike’s favorite aspect of creating custom homes is getting to build something that turns into family memories: The American Home. Mike attributes his success to his hardworking staff and amazing family.

If you catch Mike outside the office, it’s likely he will be spending time with his two daughters. Mike feels blessed to have them both be a part of his life and successful career.
