Knight Frank’s Brisbane office leasing team is expanding in a vote of confidence in the strength of the city’s commercial market in both the CBD and fringe.
Three agents have joined the team, including:
- Matt O’ Brien – Senior Leasing Executive
- Sebastian Fahey – Leasing Executive
- Daniel Byrne – Leasing Executive
Mr O’Brien and Mr Fahey will cover office leasing in Brisbane’s fringe, joining Knight Frank Partner Office Leasing Andrew Carlton.
Mr Byrne will cover Brisbane’s CBD market, working alongside Knight Frank Partners and Joint Heads of Office Leasing Mark McCann and Campbell Tait, as well as Director Jamie Nason, and Associate Directors Nicholas Ritchie and Michael O’Rourke.
Mr McCann said Knight Frank’s Brisbane office leasing team was led by three senior partners, and the expansion had focused on recruiting agents with experience of up to 10 years.
“The three new appointments bring a younger, energetic vibe to the team, but have great experience and well-established networks, specialising in high volumes of lease transactions.”
Mr McCann added that the outlook for the Brisbane market was positive, with tenant inquiry and activity strong and expected to remain that way for the foreseeable future.
“We are very confident in both the CBD and fringe markets, and we anticipate the level of activity to increase over the next three to six months,” he said.
“With the expanded CBD and fringe leasing team, we are able to provide complete coverage in both markets across all asset grades and office precincts.”
Mr Carlton said the growth of Knight Frank’s Brisbane office leasing team was testament to the strength of the business and the market.
“We are seeing a diverse range of tenants take on space in Brisbane, from many different industries, and many businesses are expanding from other states into Queensland,” he said.
“With Brisbane only continuing to improve in stature, particularly with some very significant infrastructure projects in the pipeline, and strong population growth, we are confident demand for office space will continue in earnest.”
