Don is a clear-sighted, down-to-earth business professional with a sharp sense of where economic value comes from, and how to deliver; and how to measure it. Engaging with him on retail property valuation takes me instantly from theory to the hard-edged practice of valuation in micro-markets. He has the added virtue of being a very accessible person who is easy to talk to!
Don is a leader and visionary in his field. He has a remarkable aptitude for predicting future market trends and dynamics. He has a deep and broad understanding of the retail property market and has always offered sound perspectives.
Don has excellent knowledge of all facets of retail property and leases in general. He looks at each lease and business on an individual basis and understands the business' performance with respect to its physical location rather than just a "rate per square metre" approach.
I love reading your articles, always make me laugh. We have decided to quit… retail just isn’t fun anymore and our landlord is being a typical landlord, demanding full refits, jacking up rents, constantly criticizing etc., etc., and I’m over it. Time to take a break. Keep up the good work my man. I have learnt something from these people though, I am a landlord now and I take bloody good care of my tenant.
Thank you very much for all the time, effort, and consideration you have put into our submission. We are extremely happy with your service… We feel extremely fortunate to have discovered you – it is very rare to find an individual as intelligent, knowledgeable – yet open-minded, honest, and passionate – as yourself. We have learnt a great deal through this process and for that we are grateful.
