Michael Steadman has bought two properties in the past two years, now he’s decided to make his passion for real estate a career as well.
Born and raised in the northern suburbs, Michael recently joined the team at Ray White Gawler | Willaston and will work alongside the award-winning Team Whiston, after a past career spent largely in the Australian Army.
Previously stationed at Edinburgh, Michael is no stranger to discipline, having done a tour of Iraq and his favourite saying from his Army days is: ‘Hard work beats talent if talent doesn’t work hard,’ – a motto he still finds relevant today.
In his teens Michael says he loved football and BMX, and he was lucky to be sponsored for BMX by an Adelaide business, which saw him travel around Australia.
Aside from a passion for fitness, Michael says his love of bikes extends to the motorcycle variety, although his collection was largely sold to fund his entry into the property market as a homeowner.
With that house now an investment property, Michael says he and partner Bianca went on to buy a home together in Gawler Belt, where they live with their much-loved and well trained, Blue Heeler pup, Digger.
Michael is hoping his people skills, hard work ethic and competitive nature will all serve him well in his new real estate sales career, and he hopes to one-day have an investment home portfolio which will rival the former motorbike collection.
On a Sunday, Michael can often be seen popping into Gawler South Bakery just down the road from the office for a Yiros pie and a latte and he enjoys spending family time with Bianca and local walks with Digger by his side.
