Richard Pigott – Principal

Richard has spent 23 years in commercial property in Sydney and Brisbane working on behalf of both landlords and tenants with experience in all sectors and major Australian markets. In 2010 he decided to specialise in providing assistance to commercial tenants when he started Sq.m Consulting.

“Over my previous career as a landlord representative I negotiated numerous commercial leases with tenants, who unfortunately didn’t understand the leasing market or process resulting in missed opportunity for considerable lease savings and efficiencies. For this reason, I decided to “jump the fence” and in 2010 launched Sq.m Consulting with a view to representing Queensland tenants with a view to helping them achieve better leasing outcomes”.

Will we take a fee from the landlord?

In short – No!

Given our independence we don’t take fees from landlords which we regard as an indisputable conflict of interest. Additionally, when Landlords pay “TR” Fees, they factor these fees into the agreed deal, meaning the tenant’s deal is reduced accordingly. Therefore the tenant still pays a fee,  just indirectly.
