Leonard Wood

Property is Leonard’s second career and it all began at 40!


He started as a Lettings Manager in Marylebone before being headhunted by a local independent who had branches in West Hampstead and St. Johns Wood. After 7 years working in both areas he decided to go it alone and in August 2009 Michael Leonard Estates was established. Since then he’s not looked back. When at home, his passions are riding his Harley Davidson, spending time with the family and dogs, eating out and going to the cinema.
