With a background in finance, commercial and industrial real estate was a natural fit for Mike Houlker and he has consistently been one of the country’s top performing agents since joining Bayleys 36 years ago.

Noticing the reservations that some smaller investors had about the significant outlay involved in direct property investment and having all their investment capital tied up in one property, Mike began investigating alternative property options for these types of investors. Working with leading property fund managers and syndicators, Mike has project managed the marketing and sell down of over 60 successful property funds and syndications over the last 20 years, raising over $1.2 billion of investors’ equity on property valued in excess of $2.5 billion.

During this time, he has developed an unrivalled knowledge of this sector of the market. Mike is Bayleys Head of Syndication and Investment Products and is also qualified as a Financial Adviser.
