Colliers faced numerous challenges throughout this campaign. The property featured only one window which was positioned at the suites entrance facing directly into the adjacent building. With the asset close to 200sqm, this led to poor natural light throughout the property atop of a very tired fitout before its refurbishment.


Our initial strategy focused solely around our key expert knowledge of current market drivers and our experience understanding the potential buyer profile. We took immediate action due to our awareness of owner occupiers and investors facing acquisition hardship upon Transport NSW’s site announcements.
We knew the buyer would be of a medical, legal or “traditional practice” background and we were relentless in positioning the property to these key targets to ensure immediate competitive tension from the start to finish of the campaign.
