After graduating from Radford College, Michael became a finance broker for over five years. He also studied Advanced Marketing at the University of Canberra. After his time in financial services, Michael saw greater challenges in real estate and joined the industry over 19 years ago.
Michael enjoyed an active upbringing, playing many sports including over 20 years of rugby league with West Belconnen, and a season with the Canberra Raiders Reserve Grade. He makes time to enjoy golf, cricket and Oztag, and maintains strong ties with family and friends. He enjoys spending quality time with his wife Rebecca, son Cooper, and daughter Eve. He balances his busy work schedule with a continued involvement in sports including coaching his son Cooper's under 12 rugby league team, as well as watching his daughter Eve play T-Ball and display her dance skills at Calisthenics.

Always striving to do what's best for his clients and their future, and always has their best interests at heart, be they buyers, sellers, landlords or tenants. He is professional, highly skilled, knowledgeable and experienced, and ensures clients and the local community are better off as a result of his efforts.
Michael opened Peter Blackshaw Gungahlin in 2003. His locally owned, family run agency has established itself as an expert in the northern suburbs, and has forged a reputation for dedicated customer service and quality. Michael treats his clients and his staff as if they're part of the family.
