Our  Club  initially  engaged  CollO iers  Newcastle  in  May  2016  to  market  a  5,500sqm property that was previously occupied by the Swansea Bowling Club. It was marketed with  a  variety  of  options  ranging  from  adaptive  reuse  of  an  existing  building  to residential  development  opportunities.  The  outcome  of  this  process  was  an unconditional offer within the initial market appraisal.

 We  also  held  another  10,600  m2   property  in  close  proximity  which  was  in  the process of being rezoned and subdivided. Based on the success of the initial sale we again engaged Colliers Newcastle to market this property in September 2018. This particular  campaign  was  conducted  based  on  tight  time  frame  which  attracted significant market interest. Again we subsequently achieved a sale which was both unconditional and within the initial market appraisal.  

During  this  period  we  received  solid  advice  that  added  value  and  superior negotiation  skills  which  resulted  in  Belmont  16s  maximising  its  return  for  our Members. These outcomes were a direct result of the efforts of Peter Macadam (in conjunction with Peter Dodds) and we thank them for the efforts.  Colliers  Newcastle  would  be  our  preferred  organisation  for  any  of  our  future commercial property needs.  

Scott Williams, CEO.



I first contacted Colliers International in July 2016, with a view to understanding the market depth and importantly the value of our bowling club premises. Being a Stratum subdivision above a shopping centre it was not a straight forward proposition. I was referred to Peter Macadam - Director Special Projects who was able to undertake a detailed appraisal, whilst at the same time raise a number of important considerations and suggestions for my Board.

The initial advice from Peter formed an integral part of our amalgamation proposal.  Peter was always available to discuss his thoughts on the market with us and our respective advisers, and ultimately the Belmont Golf Club, with whom we entered into a Memorandum Of  Understanding in August 2017.

We implemented his recommended marketing strategy, placing the property on the market in September 2017.  Final outcome achieved exceeded our expectations and ensured the long term sustainability of Belmont Bowling Club. His approach was professional and his communication throughout the last 18 months ensured all parties concerned remained fully informed.

I would not hesitate in recommending Peter Macadam from Colliers International to any prospective client at any point in the future.

Trevor Gasson, President. 



Peter Macadam sold my commercial property in Aberdeen  for a price that I was very happy with. I found the Collier’s experience to be very professional. Peter knows the commercial market very well and works very hard for his clients. I strongly recommend Collier’s to anyone or any company needing to sell or buy as you get the best.
