His regular communication to the process gave us confidence and provided good due diligence for Board approval. We are very pleased with the end result.

Kerrie Bolte

Office Manager – Gilshenan & Luton

“We first engaged Sqm Consulting in 2015 to assist us with locating new premises and negotiating a new lease. Richard and Kathy were exceptional in all aspects of the process. They are lovely people – both incredibly helpful and easy to deal with, yet extremely professional and skilled in what they do. So when we needed to negotiate for more space adjacent to our office to accommodate growth of the business, we did not hesitate to again call on SQM. Richard’s knowledge of the property market, the agents and the tricks of the trade again proved invaluable in what has been a protracted negotiation due to the sale of the building. We could not have done the deal without him and we highly recommend his services”.

Anna Leyshon

NGH Environmental  

“Richard was recommended to us by a previous client of SQ.M Consulting.

We had not initially thought to use a tenant advisor, as we believed the process of finding a new office would simply be a matter of contacting agents, having a look at options and signing a lease.

The process is, of course, complicated and time consuming, particularly with CBD offices.

Richard was able to target the appropriate agents and create a shortlist based on our needs and budget and arrange all the inspections to take place on one day. It was a great to have Richard assist us to navigate the potential office space options and give seasoned advice on the potential pitfalls and potential of each space. Of even greater value, Richard was able to clearly explain the financial and contractual intricacies of the office leasing process which we were not familiar with.

We were sceptical of the need to hire a Tenants Agent at first, but it became abundantly clear that the fee was not only very reasonable considering the extent of the work Richard did, but also easily covered by a superior financial outcome for us.

I highly recommend Richard Pigott as a Tenant Advisor to anyone looking to lease an office space”.

Director – ILSC

“Richard represented us in a mid-term lease renegotiation. We were thoroughly impressed with his market knowledge, his ability to share that knowledge with clarity and integrity and the result he was able to negotiate for us. As a result, Richard has become a key resource in helping us manage our commercial real estate needs and relationships and I would have no hesitation in recommending him to other tenants”

Regional Director – Wood Engineering (formerly Amec Foster Wheeler)

“Richard provided exceptional services in helping us achieve a better than expected financial outcome.  His knowledge of the Brisbane real estate market and leveraging that knowledge in negotiating a better outcome is superb.  This is the second time we have used Richard to negotiate a deal on our behalf in the last 2 years, and I wouldn’t hesitate in utilising his services again.”

Testimonial

Kellie Powell

Director – PT Partners

“Richard came to us highly recommended from a business associate and the first meeting was enough for us to know we had the right person working with us.  Richards’s expertise in the area was evident, he worked with us closely throughout the entire process including researching current market rents, viewing other properties in the area and of course all the negotiations with our landlord.  It is fair to say we would never have achieved the wonderful outcome and substantial savings we achieved had we not engaged Richard to manage the process.  I would highly recommend Richard and have already done so to some of my clients”.
