Why Choose an American Real Estate Agent practising in the United Kingdom?
Let’s face the challenge of the UK “estate agent” squarely. Estate agents in the UK, and particularly in London, tend to be poorly regarded. I have heard phrases such as “straight out of school”, “shyte”, “unscrupulous”, “lazy”, and “disappear as soon as an agreement is made”, when I asked friends and trusted colleagues about our profession. Although I came to the UK for three months in 2021 to engage in market research on the real estate in London, I was naïve about public attitudes concerning estate agents and the way that real estate is practiced in England.
Real estate professionals in the US have a very high bar of ethical, financial, and customer care when engaging in the purchase or sale of property with their clients. Competence is demonstrated through dozens of hours of study and successful examination process as a MINIMUM to hold a real estate license. Additional post licensing education as well as education on ethics, contract execution and management and conflict resolution are all essential components for practicing the art of real estate.
In short, the CULTURE that I come to England with is a culture of listening, questioning, truth telling, ethical and fair business dealings, patience, persistence, follow through, and putting client goals ahead of personal desires throughout the duration of our working relationship.

Michael helped us secure lodging when we moved to town and helped us buy our house 6-7 months later. His local knowledge and general market knowledge were invaluable. We were more than happy with him and thus, 5 years later, he was still our first stop when it came to another purchase. He moved everything along smoothly, offered insights and local knowledge, and was always readily available.
"Great guy, great personality"
Thank you very much to Michael King. He is very professional and excellent in communication. I have dealt with many commercial property transactions in the past. And my expectations are pretty high. But his service was excellent from day 1. Thank you very much, Michael. I will be asking you for next transaction and recommending him to my friends and colleagues.
"Michael is a real estate professional I worked with to buy my home in Alaska. The word "Professional" does not even begin to describe the level of service I received. As a real estate broker myself, I have an idea of what good service is. To say that Michael's was the best I have received in the industry, would understate it by a mile."
