Michael then joined a national estate agent as a sales negotiator and after several promotions was running a large branch when he decided the time was right to join some ex-colleagues and work at MAP.

Having a pooch in the office is a great way for an initial meet and greet and Holly is learning her role is very valuable with putting any client coming into our office at ease straight away with a waggy tail and a wet nose to say hello.

Holly loves walks, treats, belly rubs and cuddles and when not in the office can be found lying on a sofa or under a tree snoozing and relaxing. If you phone the office you may hear Holly in the background as she does like a good ‘woof’ occasionally to say ‘hello’ to anyone visiting. Holly is by far the cutest member of the team! We are all doggy people at MAP and having one in the office has many benefits to both the team and visitors alike and we are lucky that we are allowed to bring Holly into the office to work with us.
