Mike Farris

Senior Partner


With four years of experience as a Realtor, Mike is proud to have found his niche in the real estate industry. Having transitioned from a successful career in public education where he earned a BS in Secondary Education and a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Idaho, he discovered his passion for continuing to work closely with people. His ability to connect with individuals and understand their needs and challenges has proven to be a valuable asset in his real estate career.

Mike decided to partner with City of Trees Realty because he thrives in a team environment, having previously worked with teams throughout his career. The collaborative spirit at City of Trees provides the ideal setting for him to achieve success in his business. Mike’s favorite aspect of the real estate industry lies in guiding and counseling buyers and sellers through what is often the most significant financial decision of their lives. He finds fulfillment in ensuring their experience is positive from start to finish.

In the past 12 months, Mike’s production reached $4,242,535, contributing to a lifetime production of $19,206,345. As a designated Realtor, his superpowers include conversing with strangers, asking quality questions, and genuinely engaging with people. Mike’s wife and their three kid are his foundation and purpose. Outside of work, he enjoys DIY projects, exploring the mountains, discovering new restaurants, and spending time on the golf course. Having lived in Meridian for 29 years, he appreciates the balance of a community that is both vibrant and intimately familiar. He gives back to his community by providing 25 years of service to three different school districts in the Treasure Valley, where he had the privilege of working with thousands of exceptional students, parents, and community members.
