Mike Mcgee

Mike McGee

Founder & Chief Executive Officer.

As one of the key figures in Spanish real estate since 2007, Mike took a little known Spanish business with no internet exposure to one of the largest inland independent real estate agencies in the Granada area of Spain within 18 months. The company also became one of the most active top 5 companies in Spain's largest property portal with this status maintained for over 2 years. The award of IASPP (International Association of Safe Purchase Professionals) status being attained in 2008 usually the reserve of large S,L companies capped of the achievements.

During this time Mike realised that Internet and website property marketing was becoming increasingly popular across Europe and international agents favorite advertising medium. With the global development of all the social media resources Mike recognised that there was a requirement for a more user-friendly and affordable property portal in the marketplace & took the decision to move from Spain back to England in order to drive the development of an international property portal, hence the launch of Yazoo Property Limited.

The company was almost two years in the making and is dedicated to meeting the modern property agent’s needs, as well as the ongoing demands from clients. 2014 saw the official launch of the Yazoo Property Portal delivering a fully developed and professional solution to the property portal market starting in Spain.

To continue to meet agent’s and consumer needs, Mike has formed a talented managerial team with the required experience required to manage both agent and consumer expectations to a level that will raise the bar significantly for property portals and leads the way forward with his hands on style of management.

Paula Townsend

Paula Townsend

Co-Founder & Director

Paula spent most of her earlier career years within a Blue Chip Company. Her drive, focus and eye for detail meant that she was given diverse roles within the Company, including Design, Marketing and Sales. She focused on producing innovative ideas, which led to process changes and company success.

In 2005 Paula decided it was time to realise her dream of building her own business. After in depth research Paula found her market in Pet Crematoria, a well-known industry in the USA but little recognised in the UK.

Deciding that this niche market would be the place to start, Sunnyfield’s Pet Crematorium was founded, and has since grown to become the largest in East Anglia.

Following Sunnyfield’s success, Paula set her sights on a new challenge and In 2012 Paula and Mike (Founder of Yazoo Property) worked collaboratively on creating Yazoo Property. This brought with it an opportunity for Paula to work with her innovation and marketing skills in order to identify agent and consumer needs and ensure that the portal being designed and developed was always focused on consumer expectations and market potential.

Paula maintains that the portal must always meet the highest standards whilst being honestly affordable.
