Agents you can count on!
Team Mikels - Tyler Mikels grew up in Southern Oregon and JoLena Mikels grew up in Southern Washington. JoLena decided to move to Eugene, Oregon after high school to attend College while pursuing Pole Vaulting at Lane Community College. Tyler decided to move to Eugene to attend Lane to pursue an associates degree. Tyler and JoLena met in a “Birds of Oregon” Biology class in the first week of the semester and became a couple after a 6 month friendship. After receiving their transfer degree in business they moved to Southern Oregon to continue working towards a Bachelor’s degree in business at Southern Oregon University. Tyler was happy to be back in Southern Oregon and JoLena quickly fell in love with the area.
After graduating college Tyler and JoLena operated and managed a marketing company in Medford. There they gained a lot of experience working with clients, managing/consulting sales representatives and handled all the day to day business tasks.
In 2012, Tyler took a management position at our local Toyota store in Grants Pass and spent 9 years there. Meanwhile, JoLena took a break from the business world to start a family. We now have two wonderful children Hailey and Hudson.
When the time came for JoLena to get back into her career she knew that she and Tyler really enjoyed working together. Tyler always had dreams of working in Real Estate and running another business. They both wanted to be able to do something we could be passionate about. Their desire to work closely with people and help them achieve their goals made Real Estate a great fit. In 2019 they joined Ford Real Estate and have a team called “Team Mikels”.
Tyler and JoLena are also passionate about their community. In January of 2022 they helped launch a community magazine in Medford and later that year launched a community magazine in Grants Pass. This gives them the opportunity to share stories about the incredible people and businesses who live in Southern Oregon.
Working with us will provide a great client relationship, prompt communication, attention to detail and a strong advocate for you while you’re making your dreams come true in buying or selling your home. We look forward to working with you!
