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.
