Burgess Rawson’s Growth Story Continues

Published on: 18/09/2023

Burgess Rawson has experienced phenomenal growth in recent times, cementing its position as the nation’s largest, privately-owned commercial agency.

This evolution has seen the company increase its staff and open new offices in Townsville and Mildura while our portfolio auction events now operate across the eastern seaboard.

With this expansion, we have also hired some of the best operators in the business enabling us to provide the best service to our clients.

In Townsville, Michael Hooper joined us late last year as a sales executive. With over 20 years in the industry, Michael has operated his own business, establishing strong relationships and an in-depth knowledge of the North Queensland commercial property market.

We have also hired David Napoleone as a senior sales executive to be based at the Melbourne office.

David has nine years’ property experience having commenced his career at Barry Plant where he worked alongside REIV and REIA. Agent of the Year, Mark Di Giulio in the top-performing team in the network.

He then moved to CVA Property Consultants focussing on commercial property and specialising in industrial sales/leasing as well as development sites and commercial investments.

Some notable sales include multiple former Uniting Church sites that were suitable for an array of development outcomes.

David’s appointment follows the recruitment of Drew Mitchell who has made the leap into commercial real estate after a stellar career in Rugby Union playing for the Wallabies.

Drew joined the Sydney sales department as an executive.

While the team at Burgess Rawson has grown rapidly over the past year with each department gaining several new staff members, the business is actively recruiting new staff to join its sales, leasing, and asset management divisions.
