"I was blown away by his knowledge of the area and history, which helped influence my choice to choose Hampstead over Highgate." - Cassandra DeVos
"I would highly recommend Michael McHale to anyone looking for an estate agent! I could write a million amazing things about Michael and truly do not have a single negative thing to say. I have worked with many agents in the past, both in the UK and the US, and Michael is by far superior. He consistently went above and beyond for us from beginning to end. Night and day to any other agent I’ve ever worked with. Not only is he extremely hard working and amazing to work with, he is a wonderfully dedicated family man. He is always extremely responsive and positive, has the most amazing energy and ‘can do’ attitude! Any question I ever had throughout the process - and there were many - he was always quickly responsive and happy to help/explain. I truly felt supported from the very beginning to very end.
I was blown away by his knowledge of the area and history, which helped influence my choice to choose Hampstead over Highgate. We transacted on our house in the Croft’s with Michael and he truly was our best advocate through the entire process. Michael is extremely knowledgeable with both on market and off market properties. He has made great connections and friends all across the market, and it shows.
I love the new business they are building and how connected they are to the community and its people. Michael very much cares about the people around him and always makes sure everyone is smiling, happy, and enjoying themselves! The work he does within the community is both heartwarming and impressive.
The price we were able to achieve with Michaels negotiating and people skills was better than we had ever even hoped for. He spent a lot of time and energy on making sure he achieved the best for us and we could not be happier.
The process of buying/selling a home should be an exciting and fun experience rather than stressful. But I can honestly say that this is my first experience with an estate agent that I was able to actually enjoy the process. I’m sure Michael handled a lot of issues behind the scenes, but never made them aware to us and just made it happen!
We are beyond appreciative for Michael and his hard work and would highly recommend him to anyone that asks!" - Cassandra Devos
“We consider ourselves lucky to have found Michael, he is a 11/10 real estate agent hands down."
- Elina Kovaleva
“I have huge respect for hard work, and I know how difficult it is to find extraordinary professionals in any field. This is why we consider ourselves lucky in having found Michael for he is a 11/10 real estate agent, hands down.
We first met Michael as potential buyers when he showed us a flat on New Year’s Eve and were impressed with his enthusiasm – he was always available, any time of day, Sundays, evenings, public holidays. We went on to instruct Michael on the sale of our property in W11. At first, we were a little concerned that his agency may be too small, so we also instructed one of the larger chains as well. To our great surprise, throughout the marketing period, Michael delivered significantly more viewings than the large agency. His feedback was always timely and to the point. He continuously stayed connected with us, updating us on the latest market intelligence and what was going on in the area. He had creative marketing ideas. He was always available for viewings, second viewings, 10th viewings. We were not surprised that it was him who got us the offer that we accepted.
Once agreed, the deal itself was extremely complicated between the solicitors as the property was Grade II listed, but when the process hit roadblocks, Michael was always the man with the plan. I did not appreciate how much involvement from his side would be needed even after the offer was agreed, and I am not sure that we would have got the same amount of attention from a large agency. Needless to say, we have already recommended Michael to our friends, family and anyone else who’d listen." - Elina Kovaleva, Investment Professional
“Mike transacted on my house on Steeles Road, NW3 and did a phenomenal job throughout the process. He took the time to really understand what was important to me. I worked with the big three in Hampstead/Belsize over the years and Michael was a head above the rest. He gives great advice throughout, which is why I have recommended his to several friends for their sales."

"I was impressed with Michael’s determination and energy and was confident of receiving a very personal service, which is why I chose to work with him." - Nigel Rogers
“I am pleased to recommend Michael McHale to prospective property sellers. He was recommended to me by The Head of The Property Department at one of London’s Leading Solicitors, following an unsuccessful 3 months marketing my property with two of the largest estate agents in London. There had been little traction and poor communication. At our initial meeting at my home, I was impressed with Michael’s determination and energy and was confident of receiving a very personal service, which is why I chose to work with him. I was not disappointed.
Michael made a video of my property and invested in a social media campaign together with other marketing channels, which I don’t believe the other agents hadn’t done. What was reassuring was the quality of his communication/feedback – I felt he was always on the case. This extra effort resulted in an agreed offer in a 2-week period over a Christmas break, when I suspect other agents were closed. Although I might have been prepared to accept the initial offer, he pressed for another £50k which sealed the deal and represented between 4.7% and 15% more than other agents had managed.
Following the agreement to sell my property, I encountered a problem with a building licence in respect of work carried out many years ago. Things were getting bogged down but Michael worked very hard to identify experts who could help with the issues and was successful in getting the matter resolved.
In recognition of the above, I should be pleased to recommend Michael to others and happy to be contacted for references.”

"He took away huge amounts of stress that goes with selling/buying a home." - Sarah Burns
"I would be delighted to recommend Michael McHale after he assisted us with the sale of our property. Not only does he offer an incredibly personal service, but he is responsive, full of energy and determined. Any issues that we encountered along the way, he helped resolve with little fuss. He took away huge amounts of stress that goes with selling/buying a home. Michael would be my first choice when buying or selling another property." - Sarah Burns
"He managed to delicately navigate very complex negotiations between the parties on both deals, both of which took almost a year to exchange." - Alessandro Gren
"I loved working with Michael McHale on both our home sale and purchase in Kensington. He truly is in a different league vs other Estate Agents. He has excellent energy, work ethic and managed to delicately navigate very complex negotiations between the parties on both deals, both of which took almost a year to exchange. He is an agent that really does not fit the terrible stereo types of the industry and we were lucky to find him. We were first time buyers and he assisted us throughout the whole process, also recommending solicitors and consultants. Extremely hard working, focused and dedicated, as well as a truly extensive knowledge of the market and deep understanding of the negotiation dynamics. I am proud to recommend him and the team at KIRE and am sure you wont be disappointed. Happy to provide references" - Alessandro Gren
