The property industry is a major contributor to Australia's economy. Investor demand has been a key driver of growth in the residential property market, while the upturn in retail and non-retail commercial real estate continues to thrive due to low interest rates and a strong investor appetite.

Colin Biggers & Paisley has more than a century of property industry experience, giving us a unique understanding and knowledge that sets us apart from our competitors. We work with you to drive the best possible commercial outcome for each real estate project and portfolio. 

Our experience is in residential, industrial, rural, commercial and government projects, across all property asset classes, including retirement, aged care, agriculture, mining, residential mixed use, hotels, office leasing portfolios, shopping centres and infrastructure.
