Testimonial to Rawdon Briggs- Colliers international
I have been following Colliers property sales for a number of years with much interest and over the time I observed that they were not only dealing with national property sales but also the top end value of sales and introducing buyers from all around the globe.
It made a lot of sense to me to approach them when my family and I decided to market our dryland and irrigation property as a sale and leaseback expression of interest.
I was introduced to Rawdon Briggs, National Director | Transaction Services with Colliers Agribusiness National and International Sales. Rawdon was very professional in his approach toward the sale, as he made sure all the details were completed and understood before introducing the farm to a prospective buyer. He was always approachable, supportive and worked patiently in our negotiations with the buyers.
I believe this has led us to have only qualified buyers for inspections and a positive sale and lease agreement achieved.
My family and I would thoroughly recommend Rawdon in his position and commend him on a great job in achieving a sale result we are all extremely happy with.
