''Gavin was able to identify a wide range of domestic and offshore investors through his extensive network of key decision makers within the investment market. These relationships resulted in strong interest being received for the portfolio and created a competitive sales process.  The campaign delivered a significant premium to book value for the Portfolio which was in line within initial price guidance provided during the submission.''

Tom Sillar, Senior Transaction Manager, and James Doneley, Head of Transactions | AMP Capital


''Throughout the entire process Gavin’s intimate knowledge of the Australian Industrial investment market and relationships with key decision makers within Australia and offshore was extensive and effective in maximising the value of our portfolio. The discrete off-market campaign through a competitive bidding process we were able to achieve a price in line with Colliers proffered expectations, whilst maintaining confidentiality throughout the process.''

Peter L. Millist, Director, Property & Procurement General Merchandise | Greenlit Brands


''Having been active in the industrial market, Mirvac (on behalf of MILP) has also had the recent experience of working with Colliers as an asset purchaser via the acquisition of 1 Johnson Road, Campbelltown, which was via a co-agency campaign. Gavin’s strategic approach and professionalism during this process was also impressive. Gavin’s manner was professional, and we felt he always acted with his client’s objectives in focus to achieve the best result.''
