UNRIVALED ENERGY, COMMITMENT AND
PROVEN RESULTS ARE THE HALLMARKS
OF AUSTRALIA’S MOST AWARDED AGENT…
MICHAEL KNIGHTS.
Michael Knights was born and bred on Queensland’s Redcliffe Peninsula, and has
worked in the Real Estate industry for over 20 years. He bought his first property at
the age of 20 and has continued to identify growth areas and build on his investment
portfolio. Michael possesses an in-depth understanding of South East Queensland’s
property market and embraces the relaxed beach-side lifestyle the region offers.
Michael brings a powerful combination of experience and professionalism to his
clients and future prospects. He believes the best way to secure the highest sales
price is through customer service, strong negotiating skills and being able to
think strategically. A solid background in proven marketing and sales has firmly
entrenched his ambition to consistently exceed clients’ expectations.

“I wouldn’t make a recommendation on a project if I wouldn’t buy it myself.”

 

A BUSINESS MAN, SALESMAN,
SPORTSMAN AND FAMILY MAN.
Michael Knights opened Re/Max on the Redcliffe Peninsula in Queensland in January 2000. The
franchise agency was quickly awarded the No.1 office in Australia and continued to so for many
years. Michael decided to sell the enormously successful business in June 2006 to semi-retire
and move to the Sunshine Coast to spend more time with his family while focusing on property
development. Michael is now a proud local resident of the region, and brings an unwavering
passion of the real estate industry to the area.
Currently, Michael owns numerous businesses including 24 hour gyms, a leading boutique
Coastal Real Estate business (Michael Knights Realty) and a Property Coaching and Mentoring
company. He now prefers to work inconspicuously and work hard as a silent achiever. Married
with two beautiful children, Michael embraces family and community alike. He loves to keep fit
and competes in many fun runs, marathons, ironman events and triathlons around the world.
He enjoys the beach, working out in the gym and eating exotic food. Michael remains a busy
professional man and a weekend warrior.

MICHAEL AMONGST THE TOP 20 REAL ESTATE
AGENTS IN THE WORLD.
Michael has become a local celebrity having appeared on many Australian property television
programs such as ‘Hot Auctions’, ‘Location, Location’ and ‘Hot Property’. He also gained international
recognition for his successful campaigns and strategies and is now well recognised when traveling
with his family around the world.  Michael has built a reputation for his predictions in the Property Market, accurately forecasting booms
and busts over the last 15 years. In his opinion, there is a small window of opportunity to purchase
property development sites now in the lead up to the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games. Michael
believes that many areas of South East Queensland are set for massive growth and high yields over the
next 6 to 10 years and has bought property and land banking in anticipation for his foresighted cycle.
According to Michael, international investors are choosing to pay premium prices for property in
Sydney and Melbourne which are already experiencing a major growth . He recommends investors
should be searching for areas that haven’t yet boomed, but will, and believes this is how real money
in property development is made. Michael’s ability to predict for high yield growth areas is knowledge
worth banking on.
