Professional Summary

David heads up the Investment Sales team in Auckland, specialising in the sale and lease of commercial property. This is a large team of brokers focused on providing solutions to owners, investors, developers, owner-occupiers, and tenants. Investment Sales also includes the syndication division, offering proportionate ownership opportunities to investors on behalf of clients.

Since joining Colliers David has been involved in a number of high profile transactions in the CBD and city fringe. Whilst David offers a broad range of services, his areas of expertise focus on the sale and acquisition of investment properties (office, retail or industrial), the re-positioning and refurbishment of under-utilised buildings, commercial developments and land sales.

Prior to joining Colliers, David earned a law and politics degree from the University of Otago and had 10 years professional experience as an investment banker, financial consultant and commercial lawyer. David's broad professional experience gives him a strong commercial understanding and a highly beneficial insight into the mindset of how vendors and purchasers operate. Furthermore, David's technical knowledge of mergers and acquisitions and corporate/commercial law are vital when negotiating on behalf of his clients.
