Michael Howard

Michael Howard is the owner and Managing Director of the North West’s (UK) award-winning property management firm urbanbubble. He started the company from the spare bedroom in his apartment after becoming frustrated with the property manager of his own building. He then took on the management of all 70 apartments in his block.

Since founding the company in 2008, Michael has become a keynote speaker for the property industry and is recognised as a Build-to-Rent (BtR) / Private Rented Sector (PRS) specialist. This has led to the appointment of an advisory role to the UK Apartment Association.

Since 2008, urbanbubble has been elected by nearly 11,000 residents to care for 10,000 schemes across the UK. The company has been recognised as one of the best places to work in the property management sector in the North West of England and has won numerous awards.

Along the way, urbanbubble has partnered with renowned developers to devise and execute a world-class property service to key schemes by Legal and General, Property Alliance, Capital & Centric and many more.

Michael has a BA in Economics and was selected by Manchester Metropolitan University to undergo the GS10K program along with the other top 6% UK growth companies.
