Our clients know that everything Augusta does, every decision, every idea and every action is committed to protecting landowners and giving them our best commercial advice so they get the result they want from their properties.
Here’s what they have to say about our approach.
“I would like to express my thanks at the great support that was received throughout the entire process from Augusta Advisors.
To me it was clear that Augusta was extremely knowledgeable as to the construction and negotiation of a development agreement. Both myself and our mutual client benefited from having Augusta on board and involved throughout the process.
I will be recommending Augusta’s services and also look forward to us working collaboratively on the next project.”
John Fairgray, Partner, BBW Lawyers
“Our directors appointed Augusta Advisors to act on our behalf in maximising the return from the Club’s property portfolio. Augusta understands club property and has been a good advisor for the Club.
Augusta provided the club with a development strategy report which was crucial to achieving the optimum result for the Club.
The result was the Club appointed a great development partner with a sound commercial return.
We would never consider taking on this project without the professional assistance and guidance from Augusta Advisors.”
Tony Lycakis, General Manager, Mortdale RSL Community Club
“Augusta supported us and then helped us to complete the lengthy and complicated negotiations, to the point where in late July this year, we signed the Development Management Agreement.
They’ve always acted in our best interest with our constituency and with developers. In this situation, the best risk mitigation one can have is to ensure that you have the best advice you can get and rely on. And we did this with Augusta.
I suppose the best reference I could give, is that would I hire Augusta again? The answer is a resounding yes, and in fact Augusta are supporting us to the completion of this development, and we have engaged them in another project for one of our local churches.
I commend them to you.”
Eva Ing, (at the time) Chief Financial Officer, Greater Sydney Conference of the Seventh-day Adventist Church
“We are very pleased to provide the following reference in relation to our business dealings with Augusta.
Augusta initially provided us with advice about how to best take advantage of the potential of our Rosehill property.
They identified and appropriately managed a delicate and problematic property issue to a successful conclusion, adding a great deal of value in the process.
At all times we felt very comfortable in dealing with the principals of the business, who we found very trustworthy and had an expert understanding of achieving the best commercial outcome from the property.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Augusta for a similar role.”
Greg Ball, Managing Director, Envirowash
“On the advice of her solicitor, we contacted Augusta to provide some guidance and advice.
In summary, Augusta assessed the personal requirements of my mother-in-law, the current market, provided transparent and professional advice, and delivered exactly what they said they would.
The professionalism shown by Augusta gave us a great level of comfort and left us in no doubt that we had engaged the right people for the job.
Most of all they were personable, approachable and accommodating.
I have no hesitation in recommending Augusta to others, and would happily use their services again in the future.”
Matt Penn, Private Client
“The advice proved to be very good value for money for several reasons:
- Augusta alerted us to a valuable opportunity;
- Advised us on the best course of action; and
- Secured a very good result for us in representing us in negotiations with developers.
Augusta clearly has a great deal of experience and expertise in successfully advising landowners about property and development. We found them proactive, trustworthy and reliable, and would definitely choose to work with Augusta again.”
David Knight, CEO, Medi-Aid Foundation
“I found Augusta to be very knowledgeable, well-connected and across new and emerging developments relevant to the Society’s situation. Augusta were proactive in their communication at all times; identified solutions (as well as updated them as new information came to hand); and provided sound commercial advice about our property.
Augusta has an expert team that has proven to be very dependable and reliable with an expert understanding of what is required to achieve the best commercial outcome for their clients.
I have been extremely satisfied in the interaction I have had with their professional services and advice. I would have no hesitation in choosing to appoint Augusta again.”
Steven R Drew, General Secretary, Pharmaceutical Society of New South Wales
“Auburn Soccer Club has recently entered into an agreement with a developer that will provide us with new Club premises, commercial space that we can lease out to create additional ongoing revenue, and some extra cash. The deal is structured to minimise our risks and protect the Club during the development process.
We have been fortunate during the process to have benefitted from the advice and assistance of Augusta. Without Augusta’s guidance and hands-on involvement, I doubt that the Club would have secured an outcome as good as it has.
I and my Board would have no hesitation in recommending Augusta for a similar role.”
Neill Hendry, Chief Executive Officer, Auburn Soccer Sports Club
“I have been asked to provide a reference for Augusta. I am pleased to do so in this instance due to my personal involvement in their work for the University.
Augusta provided the University with a high quality analysis and report which has identified options which the University can pursue in order to achieve its objectives. Their background of direct experience with similar projects gave us confidence that their advice is realistic and achievable.
The Augusta team was highly professional and the process was collaborative and interactive with University staff and management.
I would be happy to recommend Augusta’s capability in providing high-level property and development advice on tasks similar to the one completed for Deakin University.”
Kean Selway, Vice-President (Enterprise), Deakin University
“As you know, your Company was introduced to me by my accountants, who recommended you from a past association.
Your assessment of the property gave us a better feeling for the realistic value and your negotiations on my behalf achieved a significant increase in the price originally offered. I feel that I did well and yet the buyer could also be satisfied that there is a potential gain for him as the area develops over the next few years.
Should the opportunity to use your services again, or to recommend you to an associate or a friend, I would not hesitate to do so.”
Graham Brown, Ross Brown Sales (VIC)
“Augusta showed us the options for maximising our return while controlling our risk. Augusta helped us to clarify our thinking about the best strategy for our property. Augusta really understands the property market and development.”
Neil Burley, Director, Sydney Antique Centre
