Phoenix, AZ (PressExposure) September 29, 2009 -- I have had the pleasure of meeting a remarkable person who is able to split his time between his family, and charity work all while owning his own locksmith business and being NFL Alumni, none other than Mike Charles!
In 1983 Mike Charles was the 2nd Draft Pick to the Miami Dolphins after Dan Marino. He celebrated his 21st birthday by starting his first game in the NFL for the Miami Dolphins, what a memorable birthday! After retiring from the Raiders, he was asked back for one more season with Los Angeles Rams.
Once he completed his football career, he was asked in 1995 to help a friend move to Tucson and fell in love with Arizona. He decided that Tucson was the place for him to be, and sold his house back home in Bowie, Maryland over the phone never to return! He got his first job out of the NFL with a financial company, and then started a business as an independent cell phone consultant. Due to the downturn of the economy he decided it was time for a change. He knew there was something out there that he could really enjoy doing while also creating a valuable service for the community.
His Dad had always said to him "Have a trade" and while attending a Cardinal game, he sat next to and met a locksmith. Mike had always been good with numbers and a very visual person. He loved crosswords, picture finds and problem solving. "Locks are the most intricate puzzles you can come across" said Mike. He had found his nitch in life, and therefore opened up All Pro Locksmith, LLC.
Mike founded All Pro Locksmith, LLC in 2008. He is License, Insured, Bonded and a member of ILA (Institutional Locksmith of America). They specialize in commercial buildings, personal and foreclosed properties and automobiles. His services consist of Lock-outs, Evictions, Master Key Systems, Mailbox Locks, Installation & Repair of locks and cylinders, Key Duplication, Sales and Maintenance, Custom Installs and more! What separates him from the rest is the quality of his customer service. When you call, you will get him personally! His goal is to hear "Mike, you're the best!" from every client he serves. This is not just a job to Mike, he really enjoys doing this line of work. Even when he was playing football, he LOVED to play and didn't think of it as a job, it was time to enjoy himself and have fun.
If you're looking for a reliable locksmith that you can trust, look no further!
In addition to his business Mike serves the community by being on the board for FutureforKIDS, a local non-profit organization serving at risk children of the valley.
