Michael brings with him a breath of knowledge and experience in the Scottish property market and will work in partnership with Graeme McGartland, Partner at Knight Frank in Glasgow, to provide a professional valuation service to clients across Scotland.

During his career he has handled a number of high profile valuations and worked with many influential clients, including major banks such as Royal Bank of Scotland, Bank of Scotland, Nationwide, Bank of Ireland and Ulster Bank.
