Michael, born and bred in Surrey, was enticed by the residential property world in central London in 1987. He built his foundation of knowledge with two well-regarded independent agencies, specialising throughout Fulham, Chelsea, Kensington and Knightbridge.
In 1995, Michael chose to pursue the country market and a return to his familiar home territory. In 2009, he co-founded a highly successful estate agency, further consolidating his expertise and reputation.
“Having focused on the mid to high-end range of prime sales in South West London, Surrey and West Sussex, and then co-founding an estate agency, now subsequently sold, I sought a new challenge. Following recognition and huge encouragement from numerous clients and friends alike, it was clear how ideally positioned I am to provide a truly independent bespoke search and advisory service for clients, old and new!”
Michael has developed an extensive and invaluable network of key industry professionals and high net worth personal contacts. As your buying agent, his reputation alone adds considerable weight to you as a prospective buyer.
“As my client, I can ensure you gain early access to properties not yet listed on the open market, including some which will only ever be available privately.”
Through a deep well of trust in Michael’s unbiased advice, which ensures that his business is based principally on repeat referrals and recommendations from previous and present satisfied clients, Michael’s following continues to grow.
In 1999 Michael, with his wife and three daughters, took the familiar route out of London in search of open countryside and a wider choice of excellent schooling, together with fast commutability to central London – a journey not only taken by himself but one which he has helped countless families to make.
"Michael was an invaluable resource on our recent purchase, where his relationship and reputation with the selling agent enabled us to agree a deal on the house at the right price in a competitive environment. In today’s market our view is you need to have an edge to secure attractive properties; and Michael provided exactly that."

I would thoroughly recommend him as an experienced adviser in the property world."
