“I have had the pleasure of working with Dean Bracken, Associate Director, Office Leasing at Colliers in Sydney over an 18 month period.
After outgrowing our Sydney office premises, Dean assisted Australian Ethical in sourcing new office accommodation in the Sydney CBD. He was tireless in showing us a variety of options, providing relevant information and supporting our Board approval processes in any way he could. On securing new premises in Pitt Street, Dean continued to assist by facilitating a smooth lease and settlement process.
On moving to our new premises, I called on Dean again to assist us in obtaining new tenants for our old office. Once again Dean got to the task at hand and secured a tenant.
Dean was the consummate professional on every occasion I dealt with him, showing patience and persistence over many months. He has the ability to listen to clients needs, keep in regular contact, follows up and gets the job done with a minimum of fuss.
I cannot recommend Dean highly enough to you”.

“To Whom It May Concern,
Colliers International have been the appointed leasing agent on the Young & Loftus Street buildings for over six years, and have always brought excellent leasing results throughout that time.
Dean has been working on these assets with me as Asset Manager for three years now, over which time they have both proven themselves to be highly motivated, reliable and professional Leasing Agents. They have assisted us in achieving strong leasing results (via reduced vacancy levels whilst increasing effective rental rates on most tenancies), despite the difficult market conditions and soft tenant demand. The results over the past three years of this leasing campaign have been consistently outstanding, whereby Colliers have completed 32 new leases totalling 4,980sqm.
In addition to completing the new leases, Dean consistently presented new and creative marketing ideas and recommendations at leasing meetings, showing their passion and commitment to the success of this leasing project.
Dean is now well known and respected by AMP Capital, and we look forward to enjoying continued success in 2014 at the Young & Loftus Street buildings with the leasing of the last remaining vacancies within the buildings.
I have no hesitation in recommending Dean and Colliers International to any future Sydney leasing projects”.
