George Burbury | Knight Frank, Commercial Sales and Leasing Specialist, Tasmania

Former AFL Geelong Cats team member turn highly regarded property specialist, George Burbury has unequivocally earned his stripes. After joining the Knight Frank team in Victoria in 2016, George has gained a significant breadth of experience across Sales, Capital Markets and Analytics. His latest role, Commercial Sales and Leasing Specialist, has seen him return home to Tasmania, ready to take on a new market amid the exciting 2020 boom the market was anticipating.

Q1 2020 proved to be Knight Frank Tasmania’s most successful quarter of all time, but as you will be aware, the current market is now in a different shape. Enquiries on properties for sale are down, as too are enquiries for leases. With businesses of all sizes facing uncertain futures and extreme hardships, George’s expertise in commercial sales and leasing is more important than ever. 

Development Ready’s Rob Langton recently sat down with George to dissect how the TAS market is currently fairing and where things are heading in the months to come. With the COVID-19 virus having a slightly different impact in each state and territory, it’s important to stay across which markets are active, which are recovering and where there’s scope to explore opportunities. Watch, take notes and enjoy.
