Starting his property career in 2001, Daniel is now an influential figure in Sydney’s Commercial and Industrial property markets.
After a successful start in residential real estate, he began his commercial real estate career at CBRE in 2005, and was the head of the Commercial Division in the South Sydney Office for nine years. In 2013, Daniel was approached by Knight Frank to run their South Sydney division and within 18 months, he had doubled the existing team’s size and revenue.
In June 2016, Daniel decided to open his own agency and bought the LJ Hooker Commercial South Sydney franchise.
Within 18 months of opening the office, they won the Best Commercial Agency (Small) of 2017 at the New South Wales Real Estate Institute Awards, and have been finalists in 2018 and 2020. To win this award and be finalists is confirmation that the fun and professional team culture the business provides, allows for excellent service to all their clients. In 2019, Daniel purchased his second office, which was the largest and most successful Commercial Office in the Inner West. Both the South Sydney and Inner West office provide excellent coverage to our clients with a sales and leasing team of 14 full time sales and leasing agents, one of the largest and most active teams in Sydney.
During his career Daniel has specialised in commercial leasing and investment sales, and residential site sales, and has also leased and sold major industrial and retail spaces. Daniel is often called for comment by journalists from the SMH, AFR and has been interviewed and featured on the cover of the REINSW journal and many other leading industry podcasts, which is testament to his market leading knowledge, experience and track record.
