With more than 16 years in the real estate industry, Michael has an enviable record that speaks volumes about the way he approaches his business.
Widely regarded as one of the most sought after speakers on real estate sales in Australia, Michael has always been an ‘out-of-the-box’ thinker and is often at the forefront of embracing new ideas and technologies that are designed to attract more buyers to the properties of his sellers.
Michael has spoken at some of the largest real estate sales events in Australia and shared the stage with names such as Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sir Richard Branson.
Michael is a regular commentator on the real estate market and his weekly blogs are now read by more than 22,000 across Australia.
Michael has been involved in almost every facet of real estate in the first half of his career. Whether it be working within large independent agencies, large franchise groups or growing his own independent brand, Michael has vast experience in residential sales, strata sales (units, townhouses and apartments), commercial and industrial sales and leasing, large scale and boutique project marketing, prestige sales, acreage and land sales, Michael has achieved success in every aspect.
Shortly after Michael’s real estate career began, he quickly attracted many who were drawn to his passion, commitment and work ethic and as such, he left his personal selling career at the door and spent many years managing, training and leading sales teams…through his own company ‘Alto Property Brokers (that were regarded as one of the fastest growing residential real estate groups between 2003 and 2005) and then later through franchise groups including Coldwell Banker and LJ Hooker.
Discovering that he missed the ‘coal face’ activity of the industry, Michael began selling again in late 2008 and within less than 12 months, established himself as one of the top 5% of agents within Australia.
Michael later joined the RE/MAX network in 2010 and it was his 6 year tenure here where his business grew to the point where he earned many National and International Awards and recognitions that included being named as the Number 1 agent and team in the Australia numerous times, ranked within the Top 10 agents Internationally within RE/MAX (a network group that boasts more than 104,000 in 92 countries Worldwide) and was awarded ‘Marketer of the year for 4 consecutive years 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014).
Only in late 2015, Michael and his team were awarded ‘Queensland’s Best Team’ at the prestigious ‘A-List’ event. Because the ‘A-List’ awards encompasses all real estate agents right across Queensland, Michael considers this award as one of his proudest achievements.
Michael commenced ‘Innov8 Property’ with a view to being a real estate powerhouse in the forthcoming years and his view is that today’s real estate agency needs to be at the forefront of changing factors in the marketplace for buyers and sellers and also providing a far more structured format, better products and facilities and for agents, a greater level of advanced training and higher commission structures.
Michael’s clients are vastly repeat and referral contacts who regularly engage Michael to list and sell and he prides himself on the results he achieves for his sellers…which are consistently far beyond the prices that other agents achieve for similar properties within his area.
Michael has many clients that have sold 3-5 properties with Michael over the years and many have publicly voiced their opinion that they would not want to use anyone else.
Michael has an easy-going nature, friendly, informative yet quietly competitive and expects excellence from anyone that works with him or for him.
Michael has received in excess of 170 individual sales awards and the highlights include:
