Michael first entered the world of estate agency over 20 years ago and later became the Chief Executive and then Chairman of Burchell Edwards Estate Agency Group.

Embracing technology and innovation

As the leader of a large independent estate agency business, Michael developed a passion for the industry and a mission to fully embrace the power of technology to free up great agents to do what they enjoy—and for technology to do the rest.

PropTech pioneer

Michael sold the estate agency business to Connells in 2011 and put all his passion to work when he founded Purplebricks, where he was Group CEO until 2019.

This passion continues at pace and the journey is not yet over.
