Background and industry experienceMichael leads the Property Agency team in our Chester office which entails running the busy brokerage department, dealing in a broad range of disposals from country cottages to rural estates and everything in-between. The Chester office deals with sales throughout an extensive geographical area, covering much of Cheshire and North Wales. Whilst the property mix is varied, Michael is focused on the middle market, whilst maintaining a market share at either end of the property spectrum. Michael has exceptional experience in dealing with developers, from concept to the sale of the completed properties and has first-rate knowledge of high value city homes. Following university, Michael worked in London for a number of years, before establishing a property management business in Chester. Prior to joining Fisher German in 2012, Michael worked for Strutt & Parker in the agency sector.
Home is in Chester with his wife and two children. Michael is an accomplished rower, having represented Great Britain at the 1992 and 1996 Olympic Games. Having hung up his oars, he now sails, enjoys the general outdoors, walking his dog and coaches rowing.
What year did you start your job?
I joined Fisher German in 2012.
Why did you join Fisher German?
Fisher German appeared to be innovative whilst retaining traditional values such as excellent customer care and integrity, which has proved to be the case.
What has been your favourite project and why?
I can’t say I have a favourite project as every sale presents different challenges and involves people from all walks of life. What is immensely satisfying, however, is exceeding client’s expectations whether it be the sale price or simply excellent customer service.
Most admired, non-property brand?
That would have to be Virgin for its maturity, diversity and the manner in which Richard Branson contributes to the brands perception.
Volunteer rowing coaching and supporting my sons with their rowing pursuits.
Best holiday destination?
That would have to be St Davids, Pembrokeshire, although my family would rather warmer climes.
One item to take to a desert island?
My rowing boat!
Who would you like to be stranded in a lift with?
Peter Kay on the basis we could laugh the time away.
