  • "Michael had an abundance of patience with me through my relentless need for updates and answers to  questions. That coupled with his obvious extensive knowledge of the conveyancing process meant that we were able to move into our new home before my wife gave birth to our first child even during this all pandemic, which has taken a lot of my plate. I would wholeheartedly recommend Michael to my friends and family and if I ever need to move again I will be sure to seek him out myself again."
