Testimonials

"Having worked with Nick for several years on a number of transactions, Cadence values his understanding of Melbourne’s North industrial market and acknowledges him as a market leader. 

It is clear that Nick, and more broadly the Colliers business, have a genuine commitment to fact based, minute level market data that ensures transparency and clarity for all parties involved in the transaction. We look forward to working with Nick on future projects moving forward. "

Charlie Buxton - Managing Director, Cadence Property Group

"Frasers appointed Nick O’Brien on 115 South Centre Road, Tullamarine. This was a challenging asset given the high office content and specialised nature of the facility. He was successful in the leasing of 115 South Centre Road and was able to identify an occupier who took up a 10 year lease over the facility. The efforts on this campaign were of the highest standard and the leasing outcome exceeded our expectations. Several other agencies interest levels seem to fall away due to the challenging nature of the asset, but Nick maintained a strong focus despite the leasing challenges presented. 

Frasers could always be assured that Nick and the Colliers team would do what they say and execute on the campaign with high reporting standards and frequency. "

Andrew McFadyen - Portfolio Manager,  Frasers Property Industrial

"Pelligra has enjoyed a beneficial relationship with Nick O’Brien and the Colliers team in Melbourne’s North. Nick demonstrated exceptional occupier control and negotiation skills whilst transacting the AMA pre lease at 486 Foleys Road, Derrimut, a 12 year commitment that now has an end value of over $25mill.

We acknowledge Nick and the Colliers team has an unparalleled understanding of the market in Melbourne’s North and will continue to transact at a high level whilst utilising their data platform."
