A Central Coast local since the age of seven, Michael Clayton is well entrenched in the greater community. Growing up, he was heavily involved in Erina Rugby Leagues Club & a number of other local sporting clubs – a lifestyle he is now passing down to his sons, as he continues to increase his family's involvement with the rugby club, & North Avoca Surf Life Saving Club. "So much of how I do business is wrapped up in my personal connections & local business knowledge," he explains. "It's how I meet most of my clients, & I aim to build long term relationships, because I'm not just selling a house or block of land to someone - I'm helping them build their lifestyle." With an entrepreneurial mind & a real passion for success, Michael owned & operated a prosperous car dealership for an impressive 23 years of his professional career. In 2004 Michael transitioned across to real estate sales & used his years of negotiation & people skills to build another very successful business in real estate. "I'm a competitive person, & a man of my word. I aspire to do what I'm good at & do it well, & what I'm good at is sales. It's what I get out of bed for in the morning, being able to combine this with the First National brand is simply a compelling combination for any home owner or buyer.
