Hall and Scott Estate Agents : Michael HallidayMichael Halliday
I am so pleased to be joining the team here at Hall & Scott – having worked for so long for a large corporate firm with their ever increasing demands in a wide range of areas, I am looking forward to concentrating my efforts and skills on core estate agency values once again.
I was brought up in Topsham from an early age, being a pupil at all the town’s schools prior to completing “O” and “A” levels at Exeter School.
I have worked locally in Estate Agency for over 30 years in Exeter, Exmouth, Budleigh Salterton and here in Topsham since 2003 and therefore have an in-depth knowledge of the geographical area and the market.
I am looking forward to continuing my work in an area I love and meeting both new clients and those I have previously been acquainted with.
