In Conversation With: The Patient & Persistent Henry Burke | Colliers International
Development Ready’s Rob Langton recently had the pleasure of sitting down with Henry Burke, the National Director for Development Sites at Colliers International, to discuss his new dedicated professional focus; residential development sites.
Henry remarks that while the market has seen some turbulence, in the residential development site sector the future is still looking promising. He and his team continued to transact positive results for their clients through the initial April and May shock period, and they have multiple new listings that are ready to come into the marketplace within the coming weeks. The team has also been conducting an interesting and in-depth analysis of the current market situation, using the “Recession we had to have” of 1991 for comparison – for many reasons, their belief is that we are currently in a much better situation at the moment.
Henry also outlined his successful career path, forged through determination and hard work. As Henry recalls; “It actually took me three or four years to land my first job – it wasn’t something that came quickly. However shortly after getting my foot in the door at DTZ I was presented with an opportunity to join Colliers International, where I’ve been for 10 years.”
