I am passionate about providing conflict-free, innovative and highly professional real estate advice to commercial and industrial occupiers. With over 30 years of tenant advisory and tenant representation experience in Australian and overseas markets, I have seen every twist and turn conceivable in commercial real estate and technology, allowing me to counsel our clients about trends and long-term vision. Occupier-focused advisory and transactional services have been my specialty throughout my career. I refine and negotiate real estate contracts until satisfied that I've achieved your company's objectives. As a qualified Chartered Surveyor, I worked for many years at the Director level for larger, multi-national real estate service providers. I identified a growing need for genuinely independent corporate real estate advice. As a result, I led to the launch of Franklin Property Consulting in 2011. In 2014, to service the needs of a wide range of multi-national clients and to provide a comprehensive advisory service, Franklin Property Consulting and Chapman Shanks merged to create Franklin Shanks. Throughout life, I have worked hard at creating a proper work/life balance that allows me to provide rounded advice to my clients. As a keen blue water sailor with trans-Atlantic and trans-Pacific crossings, I am a lateral thinker and problem solver.
