Michael began his sales career in Real Estate back in 1982, when the focus was simply on sales technique and dialogue and was in his own words, “a lot of pressure on everyone”.
Constantly evolving, Michael has proven himself a tried and tested industry professional, and has stood the test of time. Continuing to keep pace with evolving trends, from marketing strategies and technology to a vast array of business approaches, Michael has experienced, acknowledged and embraced it all.
If you wish to stay in the business today, you had better keep yourself relevant and you had better know how to get the property out there. There are so many great ways of doing that today through clever use of social media, networking and marketing. The possibilities are incredible.
Michael believes adaptability is definitely one of the keys to staying on top as an agent. Sure, the ability to sell or ask the question is always going to be important says Michael, but you must add to that passion, energy and drive, as well as of course the ability to relate with your clients.
While Michael has forged himself a sturdy reputation throughout his 30 years in the business, maintaining his personal passions are still a large priority, keeping himself fit and his love for surfing alive, escaping to the coast with his family when the opportunity arises. Michael has three children, all grown-up and making their own strides in life. His two older daughters have followed him into the Real Estate industry and his son, a painter, definitely comes in handy!
When you choose to work with Michael Hosking, you get more than just experience; you get an energetic man who has remained committed to professional development, kept pace with the massive changes to the industry, and established himself as an outstanding Agent and Auctioneer.
