Meet Michael Groves, Josiah Carter Partner
Michael Groves and Josiah Carter officially started dating on October 29, 2017. And even past 4 years, the duo was in love more than ever.
On their 4th anniversary, Josiah took it to his IG to write, “Happy anniversary (for yesterday) to this dreamboat. Love you more now than our first date 4 years ago, here’s to the next 4 years.”
3 months after their lovely caption, Michael reciprocated the feeling, bending his knee (literally) on a mountain top, but instead of a ring, he offered Josiah a watch.
“We’re engaged! ⌚️💜,” Michael wrote over his IG post on Feb 9, 2022, flaunting their engagement pictures.
Likewise, Josiah shared the same post of the two over his IG the very day.
Furthermore, the Below Deck alum also posted another story snapshot, where the engaged couple was embracing one another, captioned, “He asked, and I said yes.”

Michael Groves Job
Michael Groves is the founder of Thornley Groves Estate Agents and a former partner of Lomond Capital. But as of 2022, he said that he was “looking for new opportunities.”
This real state expert first started his journey back in May 1984 joining Reeds Rains Estate Agents as a branch manager. He then joined Prudential Property Services on the same post in Sept 1987 and went on to work there for the next 1 and a half years.
From Feb 1989 to Dec 1991, the agent also took a job as a property department manager at Jones Maidment Wilson Solicitors.
Finally, in Dec 1991, at the age of 25, Michael established Thornley Groves Estate Agents from a single shop in the south Manchester town of Altrincham. Over time, Michael then extended the company to over 9 branches, opening the largest in Manchester City Centre in 1999.
He withdrew from the company in Sept 2013 selling a majority stake to Lomond Capital. Not soon after, he also went on to become the chairman of Lomond Capital until March 2015. However, Michael was already a partner and regional chief executive of Lomond Capital ever since Dec 1991.
“One of the key motivations for making this deal with Lomond is our absolute belief that estate agency, especially residential lettings and property management, needs change to deliver a more professional asset management service and deliver a broader range of client services,” Michael talked about the reason why he decided to merge the companies.
Last we checked, Thornley Groves Estate Agents was valued at £350 million, which merged with Lomond Capital valued at £450 million.
