Ian McLean


The sale of my property was difficult because of restrictions on use dictated by the Executive Committee of the Strata Plan Owners Corporation.

During the process several prospective purchasers were rejected but Hugh and James diligently persisted and achieved a very satisfactory outcome at a good price.

I would like to congratulate William Brown most sincerely in successfully securing for me a substitute tenant for my property.

I closed the retail outlet in Easter 2015, even though I was committed to pay rent until August 2017.

Last year I contacted several major Real Estate Agencies who all professed to have the expertise and ability to quickly secure a substitute tenant, however, they produced nil interest from anyone.

They were full of empty promises as I finally realised so when William contacted me earlier this year I was somewhat surprised.

William was genuinely concerned for my predicament and quickly put his talents to rescuing me.

William negotiated with various prospective tenants and despite not being successful, continued to actively search for a tenant.

I found William to be determined and he constantly kept me advised of his efforts.

When William introduced me to the principals of the new tenant he assured me that this time there would be a lease signed and he achieve that goal.

William's manner, expertise and persistence impressed me. He is a credit to himself and the company.

I have no hesitation in singing William's praises and if and when people ask me about Sutton Anderson I will gladly confirm my appreciation in helping me when the larger agencies failed.

James and Sutton Anderson were fantastic in every step of the leasing and subsequent sales process, providing their specialised advice and expertise and regular communication.
Both transactions were smooth and successful and James and the team at Sutton Anderson work tirelessly to get a result.

We were very pleased with Sutton Anderson's performance in the leasing of the property in Waltham St. The new lease commenced the day after the old one expired - a wonderful result. James was very professional in dealing with the prospective tenant and coordinating the leasing process. We would not hesitate to recommend him for leasing of industrial properties.

Thankyou for all the work with leasing my property at 21 Dickson Ave, Artarmon. It was a good result in such a tight rental market and I am pleased with the good quality tenants you secured. Your follow up with finalising the lease details was appreciated.

They have now moved in and it all went seamlessly.

Phillip & Anne Nowell


Reflecting on what has transpired during 2013, I feel obliged to at least place on record our heartfelt thanks from Anne and I to you and your team at Sutton Anderson.

Your professionalism, advice and dogged determination paid off in what proved to be a far from easy commercial leasing market, resulting in success with several vacant tenancies of ours being filled.

We would like to thank you for all your hard work, professionalism and genuine enthusiasm in leasing our St Leonards shop recently.

We were very impressed that you always kept us informed at every step of the progress; this gave us great peace of mind. You also provided us detail on potential tenants intentions; these definitely made things go smoothly.

We have no hesitation in recommending William Brown to anyone wanting to sell or lease his/her commercial or industrial property.

Brad was appointed joint exclusive agent on 1-3, 49 Hotham Parade, Artarmon. He worked very well with his co-agent to secure a 3007sqm lease to Scotts Honda for 10 years.

This was a significant lease for APPF Industrial and Brad showed a professional approach to negotiating the deal. I would recommend Sutton Anderson for any Industrial Leasing or Sales on the North Shore.

Stockland Property Trust


Stockland appointed Brad Sutton to offer the office asset at Frenchs Forest for sale when the existing tenant was to vacate. Given the challenges in the office leasing market at that time Stockland required an agent that would “look outside the square” to identify the value proposition and find the buyer.

Brad saw that the vacancy was an opportunity to allow the space to be subdivided and strata titled, providing smaller office accommodation for local businesses.

During the marketing campaign Brad was able to find a number of parties that were interested to purchase the property and his ability to identify the strata proposition resulted in a sale price in excess of expectations and promptly.

Overall Stockland were more than satisfied with the professionalism and commitment shown to achieve an excellent result from Brad.

Dick Smith Investments


We had indicated to Brad that we would consider selling the property if he was to present a buyer at the appropriate price. Brad found a potential purchaser and successfully managed the negotiation process to the satisfaction of both parties. It was a great result in what was a difficult market.

Todan Pty Ltd


Following detailed advice from Sutton Anderson we proceeded with their recommendations and completely redesigned and refurbished our property at 23-25 Cleg Street. They advised we change the configuration of the property from the existing 3 tenancy design into 2 adjoining 2 level self-contained office warehouse buildings with 50% quality office space on the first floor and 50% lower clearance industrial space on the ground floor of each building.

The new configuration resulted in buildings of 500m and 650m each with basement parking. The lease marketing campaign was coordinated by Sutton Anderson and generated some inquiry in a difficult market.

The negotiations handled by Sutton Anderson for one of our tenants Artel Pty Ltd were particularly complex as they are a wholly owned subsidiary of an Australian public company which was going through some rapid changes and had fixed requirements regarding their lease commitments. Sutton Anderson negotiated an acceptable compromise between the parties and the lease proceeded. We were very happy with the overall level of market knowledge, service and advice provided.

Actions speak louder than words and that makes it easy for me to offer a testimonial for the Sutton Anderson team. Its been a tough few years in the property market and I have dealt with more than a few agents and agencies covering the lower north shore marketspace.

Commercial property leasing agents are in the main motivated and driven people. They have to be to survive and prosper in a tough industry. But it takes more than just motivation to create success. The Sutton Anderson team have helped my business rebuild our investment property values in the aftermath of the GFC.

The results of their efforts speak for themselves. 3 lease deals in good succession. Regular inspections. Regular reporting. Regular communications. If words are not enough and you need to get results for your property investment talk to the team at Sutton Anderson. You’ve got nothing to lose but the vacancy signs.

As a property owner it is always a trivial pursuit to find a commercial agent in the local area who is willing to go the extra mile. It was a pleasant surprise to deal with the professional and dedicated agents from Sutton Anderson.

With my property up for lease for nearly a year in such an unpredictable market I was surprised to at last have Sutton Anderson locate a suitable tenant. I was reassured by the frequent contact from William Brown of Sutton Anderson that the leasing of my property was always in high priority.

William and the whole Sutton Anderson team not only persevered throughout the negotiations but are still in touch with me today.
Had it not been for the hard work ethic and sustained effort put forth by Sutton Anderson, I would not be celebrating with such positive results and a steady rental income!

I look forward to my future dealings with Sutton Anderson.
