"I love living in Perth and having the opportunity to do what I really enjoy doing as a career is just amazing - I get to work in one of the world's fastest growing economies with such a rich diverse mix of people - and I can still enjoy the beach lifestyle all year round... how great is that!"
Mike emigrated to the UK from South Africa in 2006 and gained several years of exposure in both real estate and recruitment - and that's where he met his lovely wife, Rhian. "We got married in the UK but decided that a career in the sunshine in Perth is what we were really after..."
Mike studied business and strategic marketing at UNISA (University of South Africa) and has worked around the world in the real estate industry.
"I bought my first investment property at 19 with money I'd saved up rolling dough bases in a Pizza shop.... and I worked 60 hour weeks across 3 jobs to cover the mortgage before growing my own property portfolio. After a few years of great success in marketing roles I eventually decided to make a career in the industry I loved... and I have worked as a real estate agent in 3 countries around the world since!"
Why Choose Mike?
I work harder and longer hours than all the other local competitors, answer calls quicker, get homes sold faster and I make the process easier!
I try to simplify the real estate experience by sharing honesty, attention to detail, knowledge and local expertise... Yes, we sell homes, but more importantly, we sell peoples' homes. With them come all the dreams, aspirations, memories, excitement, and sometimes even fear or uncertainty... its so much more than just bricks and mortar. It's our understanding and our dedicated approach to you as an individual that sets us apart.
