Esteemed specialist valuer Geoffrey Brown joins LAWD

One of Australia’s most respected property professionals, Geoffrey Brown, has joined national real estate and advisory firm LAWD as a shareholder and member of the executive leadership team, to spearhead its new Specialist Property Valuations business unit.

Mr Brown has more than 25 years’ involvement in the valuation of diverse real estate assets including agribusiness, rural, commercial, industrial and residential property.

He is also considered one of Australia’s pre-eminent specialist valuers of childcare, educational and medical facilities, and has extensive experience in compulsory acquisition work and litigation matters.

In addition to holding a Bachelor of Business majoring in Property, Mr Brown has been awarded the Advanced Certificate in Real Estate and is a Fellow of the Australian Property Institute, a Certified Practising Valuer and Licensed Estate Agent.

LAWD Chief Executive Officer, Enda Foley, said Mr Brown’s appointment represented the next phase of LAWD’s evolution as one of Australia’s foremost real estate businesses.

“Geoffrey’s appointment will have immediate impact on our capability to deliver a diverse specialist offering and he will be integral to building what we hope will become the nation’s premier specialist valuations unit,” Mr Foley said.

“We warmly welcome Geoffrey as LAWD continues to expand both its geographic presence and service lines, and are proud to have him work alongside colleagues we believe are some of the best property professionals in the country.”

The appointment of Mr Brown comes following LAWD’s recent expansion of its services across professional services, industrial real estate and metropolitan development, to complement and broaden its foundations in agribusiness, regional residential and peri-urban development.

Mr Brown said he would be particularly focused on developing the depth and capability of the Specialist Property Valuations unit.

“I have broad experience in childcare assets, litigation and acquisition and am looking forward to growing these elements of LAWD’s services, along with rental determinations and the valuation of hospitality and medical assets,” Mr Brown said.

“LAWD is extremely agile and dynamic, and appealed to me as the right cultural fit and next extension of my career. We now have a tremendous opportunity to support the business in its diversification and extraordinary trajectory of growth.”
