Testimonials

"I have known Dan in a professional capacity for the last four years, since he moved to the North Sydney office of the Colliers International network.

We appointed Colliers International on our asset at 100 Pacific Highway where Dan was the nominated agent in January 2016. 

The building is A grade comprising 22,300 sqm NLA.  At the time of the appointment we had several floors where leases were expiring, and circa 3,500 sqm of known vacancy. Hence there was considerable focus on leasing. Although Dan was new to North Sydney, I had the confidence that he would deliver an outstanding result, and was very pleased when he did.

Since Dan became Office Director, I have regularly supported him by attending many of the Colliers events and initiatives. As a sign of the strength of our relationship, I invited Dan to attend the Annual ISPT Dinner, hosted in Melbourne, which he attended as a recognition of the hard work he has put in.

Kind regards,

Martin Heal

“Dan Walker was the key operative for our very successful Gold Fields House campaign. The momentum he created on the asset allowed us to significantly uplift our final value, and create an energy in the building that was unstoppable. Dan truly understands Office Leasing, and I would have no hesitation in recommending him to any asset owner considering appointing his services.”
