Michael’s passion for property started to develop at the age of 7 or 8 when he would get up on Saturday and read the property section of the newspaper with his grandparents and detail his renovation ideas for properties that took his fancy. Fast forward 25 years and Michael is still as obsessed now as he was then.
After graduating from a property development and real estate degree, Michael quickly found himself working for one of Brisbane’s largest agencies as a residential property manager. Within 12 months, Michael was managing a portfolio of over 160 properties, including 2 retail shops, with an approximate market value of over $60 million. Michael was fortunate enough to be comprehensively trained by the best of the best, fell in love with property management and decided to make a career of it.
After satisfying his thirst for residential agency knowledge, Michael decided to move into the commercial property sector. He spent 3 years working for a boutique commercial/retail agency on the Gold Coast managing key tenants like Commonwealth Bank Australia, Coles Supermarkets and Gold Coast Airport Limited, to name a few. Michael’s highlight was being appointed the Senior Centre Manager for Airport Central at Gold Coast Airport.
Fortunately, at the end of 2013, Michael was approached by GM Homes Australasia to found GM Estate Agents and to take over the agency work of their clients. Since 2014, Michael has successfully led the team and secured over $100 million in managed assets including a number of commercial and onsite contracts.
