About Us

There has never been a greater need for flexibility, transparency and collaboration between all players in the office sector as commercial property continues to navigate unprecedented challenges and uncertainty. Steele Consulting was created to equip tenants, owner-occupiers, and industry service providers with the expertise and agility to deliver innovative real estate strategies that maximise value in a challenging operating environment.


With over 18 years’ experience in the commercial sector, Michael has developed a reputation for excellence in developing and executing complex leasing strategies, portfolio management and repositioning premium office assets. A well-respected and trusted operator by tenants, landlords and investors alike, Michael has deep expertise in real estate portfolio structures, lease negotiation, financial management, capital management and workplace experience.

An MBA Graduate of Macquarie Graduate School of Management, Michael excelled in Management of Innovation and Design Thinking and was awarded the prestigious Dean’s Award in 2019 and 2021 respectively. He lives by the mantra of paying it forward and continues to coach and mentor a number of professionals across multiple industries. 

Michael is a husband, a father of two beautiful daughters, a survivor of cancer, and a student of life, for life.


“Our passion for property and people can be found in everything we do; it is our point of difference that ensures lasting value.”



Prior to setting up his own business, Michael was Divisional Director at The GPT Group, where he held responsibility for the management and performance of a multibillion-dollar nationwide portfolio of premium commercial office buildings. Throughout his career, Michael has worked for and partnered with some of Australia’s largest REITS and private property trusts. During this time, he has executed over 200,000 sqm of leasing transactions with multinational and ASX-listed companies and repositioned some of Australia’s most renowned office buildings.


We create exceptional value for every client we partner with by challenging the status quo and focusing on what could be, and not primarily what is. We believe in thinking differently, concentrating on what is essential and enjoying the journey on every project we work on.  Our approach is collaborative, outcome focused and grounded in ethics. We pride ourselves on managing executive level relationships, providing guidance on reducing risk and navigating competing objectives to secure the best outcomes.  


Steele Consulting's assistance with strategy development and execution of a recent asset repositioning has been an enormous benefit to Nine. Michael's experience as a senior executive within the investment management stream has provided valuable insights into how large occupiers can reduce transaction and holding costs within their portfolios.
