I am an Member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (MRICS) and an RICS Registered Valuer. After 6 years of working in the Real Estate Valuation and Advisory sector I decided to set up my own consultancy firm, Pointe Michel Ltd. This came from a desire to provide developers and housing associations with the tools and advice needed to; build more affordable housing, manage their development process and to open up under-invested property markets. As a result Pointe Michel now provides consultancy advice in both the UK and in many countries in Africa. My focus is always on those projects that promote socially responsible outcomes. Such as affordable housing, investment in the local community and job creation for local people.
As a surveyor I have worked in the UK, France and South Africa allowing me to cultivate a truly global perspective on property development, valuation and advice. This allows me to specialise in unusual valuation or development projects that other surveyors may consider too complicated.
