We have worked with and relied on Josh Franklin for property advice, leasing and sales for over 10 years. We value our relationship and his advice, which time and time again we have found to be accurate and accutely aware of market conditions.

On the multiple transactions that we have carried out with Josh we have found him professional, reliable and most importantly, trustworthy.

We consider Josh and the Colliers Highbrook team one of the strongest in the industrial market.

It was not just Colliers reputation but in fact the “A Team” of Josh, Hamish and Jack  that came highly recommended to me from a life-long business associate.

From our very first meeting I gained total confidence in their professionalism, embracing both the insight provided and the direction they suggested. To optimise the leaseback opportunity presented , while embracing Reoco’s 20 year history, Colliers collective advice over all key components was invaluable. The strategic drafting of my own Lease document that  incorporated an investors perspective was instrumental in achieving a mutually beneficial document for both parties.

Obviously, I was extremely pleased with the final outcome and would highly recommend Colliers to anyone dealing in the commercial market.

I would like to thank the team of Joshua, Josh, Ash, Dhiru and auctioneer Robert. From consultation, to marketing and the auction itself, the experience was made easy. Throughout the process, the Colliers team were professional, knowledgeable, and helped me to navigate my first experience of selling a commercial property. Besides the nerves of the auction itself, I found the whole process uncomplicated and painless and look forward to my next property sale with the Colliers Team.
