Michael has been in the mortgage and property industry for 35 years and has a wealth of experience in all aspects of property, financing and investment opportunities. He started the Property Shop back in 1981 which was one of the first cut-price estate agencies marketing properties by video! This resulted in national coverage with the BBC because of the controversy this caused with established agents and the threat to their fees. The Property Shop became the largest corporate tied introducer to Legal and General in 1987. Michael subsequently sold the business to Alliance & Leicester and became a director of Alliance & Leicester Property Services. In 1991 he then went on to set up and own Taylor Robinson Estate Agency as the senior partner until 2011. Since then, Michael has concentrated on financial services, specialising in mortgage and protection and is also a director of Zoom995, the leading online estate agent.
