Michael Riley

Michael has been an estate and land agent for nearly 30 years, working for two of the most respected companies in the industry. But, in 2007 he decided to take a break from corporate life and moved from London to the coast to set up his own practice. He started to advise a wide range of clients along the coast selling some of the region’s most impressive properties, often with complex or pressing needs, including premiership footballers and even a billionaire. The success was noticed, and after more than a decade of running the company, he sold the business. He joined Spencers in 2022 to assist landowners in appraising the development potential of their property and ensuring their objectives when negotiating with developers and land promoters. He is a former member of the British Sailing team, accomplished painter, and enjoys a long country walk.

George Jones

George Jones has lived in the New Forest area his whole life. He began his career in 2013 with a country estate agency in Lyndhurst, followed by two years’ working for an independent agency in New Milton on the New Forest coast. On joining Spencers he quickly became a key member of the Ringwood office.
George has a dynamic, diligent and enthusiastic approach, and enjoys working with people and problem-solving. He comments: “No sale or purchase is the same, as every client, property and situation is different.”
George enjoys his coastal life: “I like the variety of properties on the coast and their different aspects. No two days are alike and the scenery always changes!”
Out of office you may find George paddle boarding or enjoying a walk from Highcliffe Castle down to Avon Beach for something to eat at the Noisy Lobster.

Ian Donegan

Ian Donegan began his estate agency career in 2012 with an international corporate agency. For the last eight years he has specialised in coastal property, initially working along the Bournemouth and Poole coast and latterly running an independent agency in Christchurch, before launching Spencers’ Christchurch Bay office.
Ian regularly attracts praise from appreciative clients for his dedication. Ian comments that he enjoys the interaction with people that his role provides and derives huge satisfaction from helping people move on to the next chapter in their lives.
Ian has lived locally for the past eight years and says: “We are lucky to live so close to the sea. I wouldn’t change it! It is a great area to explore, from the New Forest to sandy beaches.”
In his free time you may find him with his young family at Christchurch Quay or Southbourne beach.

Kerry Palfrey

Kerry has worked for Spencers since 2015, working for the Lettings office for six years and has now transferred her skills across to the administration role in the Lymington Sales office.

Kerry’s passion is her two chihuahuas and she also loves to fish.

Andrew Grice

Andrew Grice and his family moved to Christchurch Bay in 2014 to be closer to the water and enjoy a coastal lifestyle.
Andrew’s estate agency career started in London back in 2001. Following a move to the country, he spent approximately 15 years working for two of the country’s top agencies advising clients on the sale of town and country property in Wiltshire and Hampshire and premium coastal properties in Dorset, before joining Spencers New Forest to run the Lymington office in 2018.
Since then, Andrew has overseen the Lymington office’s increasing growth in market share including a developing representation of properties along the coast. He is highly regarded by both colleagues and clients for his calm and professional approach, while family time is spent surfing, dog walking on Barton cliff top and beach, and enjoying live music.
