Welcome to Michaels Colchester

Positioned in the heart of this historic town, our offices take prime location in an elegant and beautifully restored early Victorian property, which sits on the prestigious Crouch Street. Crouch Street has for many years been awarded the accolade of being the ‘Little Hamptons’, the road is full of quaint and bespoke shops, adorable eateries and of course a great Property Consultants! Since opening our doors to business in March 2013, we have taken the town and surrounding area by storm. All staff are local to the area and they have a great understanding and insight into the local market conditions. All of our team have worked in property, within the town for many years and unlike any other agent, Michaels really does have brand loyalty. “There is nothing more rewarding than a potential customer asking us if we can provide them with the same service as we gave to their friend. I can’t tell you how passionate we are about Customer Care. That comment makes me happy.” Said Mike, one of the Company Directors. The whole ethos and ethic of the team is to advise, assist and guide clients through the process and to do this as seamlessly as possible. We think that our working environment and our staff, need to mirror our professional standards. We are working from a beautiful office building, in the best position in town and we have trustworthy and professional staff to support us.
