Sales & Marketing Consultant, Ray White Redland Bay
Michael’s introduction to real estate came when he and his wife Ashleigh purchased their first home in Mount Cotton in 2011 and immediately fell in love with the natural beauty & community spirit that embodies the area. At the time of purchasing their first home Michael was working in sales management supplying industrial equipment to the mining and construction industries specialising in large scale power generation projects.
Having worked in the same field for 10 years with a number of industry leading companies constantly climbing the management ladder, Michael was at the peak of his career but knew that he was missing the passion for the product he was selling and decided a sea change was required and contacted the agent who sold him their first home, Jesse James; to ask him for an opportunity to become a real estate agent to sell something that excited him, whilst also being able to work in & help those in the community that he loved. It was then in 2014 that he started working for Ray White, Redland Bay and his true career began to form.
Michael took to his new career like a duck to water thanks to his extensive experience in sales and negotiation as well as his high levels of energy and enthusiasm, combined with his determination to make sure his clients receive the best service possible.
Michael’s vision early in his career was to become a specialist agent focusing his attention and energy into becoming the go-to agent with in-depth local knowledge of the Southern Redlands; particularly Mount Cotton & Redland Bay and this approach has helped him become the #1 selling agent in Mount Cotton and in less than two years into his real estate career, Michael was awarded with the ‘Ray White Premiere Agents Award’ having helped over 100 families sell & find their new homes in the Redlands.
Michael’s career quickly progressed to the point of requiring an assistant which led to the natural decision for Ashleigh to gradually transition from her full time role as a nurse to assisting Michael in real estate. Ashleigh brings with her a warming touch along with invaluable experiences gained from her background working in administration & sales prior to various fast paced nursing roles.
Together they have quickly proven themselves as a dynamic team with a track record of success and are eagerly awaiting any opportunity to assist home sellers and home buyers looking for top quality service from local area experts.
I thought Michael was always well presented and very polite, he conducted himself with a lot of confidence and he sold our house in a matter of two weeks. I cannot speak highly enough of this salesman. Thank you Michael.

To Michael, Thank you very much, we have been honoured to have you represent us in the sale of our home in Mt Cotton. Our conditions weren’t ideal, we had our challenges good and bad, but you were there for us through every minute of it, right from the very beginning your dedication to our sale was outstanding, right through to settlement, even once we signed a contract of sale, (where most agents don’t seem to care anymore, they’ve made their sale, Solicitors can handle it from there), you were different, you still kept in contact with us, continued to work hard with further enquiries, helped us over the hurdles that came our way, you made us feel at ease with the whole process. Michael your support, guidance, knowledge and understanding have been invaluable and we thank you sincerely. Best wishes and good luck to you for the future, we will be in touch again for our next purchase.
