We are privileged to work with many wonderful businesses who trust us to represent their brand, and get results. They see us as an extension of their team. We listen to what’s important to them and work closely with them to achieve maximum savings upfront as well as secure a lease that is a valuable long-term asset. We foster partnerships with our clients that last the full lifecycle of a lease - and beyond.
“We found The Leasing Department through the National Retail Association. I got talking with Kyle and he seemed like the right guy for us. He was more interested in our brand strategy, than just negotiating a good lease. He really wanted to help us build our business. We like Kyle’s approach. It’s personal. He doesn’t try and convince us to take any deal. He gives us his honest opinion which creates trust. He helped us secure a great deal for our first kiosk location in Brisbane which is trading well. We both really value the relationship we have built with Kyle and the understanding he has of our brand and our brand direction. We’re looking forward to a long-term relationship with The Leasing Department.”

"Engaging The Leasing Department is money well spent. Kyle is not only setting us up for now; he’s setting us up for the next five years. He gives us good pointers and reminds us of things we may have forgotten about because we are managing all aspects of our business. Kyle’s in-depth knowledge of commercial leasing is invaluable. His ability to negotiate terms of a lease so it works for both the lessee and the lessor is commendable. Kyle’s style suits us and our business. We have two Directors with very different styles and backgrounds and he listens to us both and then presents options to get us on the same page so that we can move forward. Kyle takes a lot of pressure off. He has become part of Artson."

"I’m a control freak so I was a bit anxious about outsourcing the leasing component of our new business. Kyle’s approach is very different to other leasing people I’ve worked with as a commercial lawyer. His service was exceptional as was the management of all the steps from start to finish. He made the process so easy. He quickly worked out what type of communication suited us best and used it very effectively – keeping us in the loop, but not wasting our time. He is very clued into the commercial sensitivities of a lease. He understands the legal aspects but also knows how to make it stack up commercially to make things happen. When you’re starting a new business there’s so much to juggle, so it was great to have Kyle on board to manage the leasing component for us."

"As a new retailer entering the market, it’s important to partner with the right organisations early in your development. From the beginning I have felt comfortable dealing with Kyle. He was able to quickly understand our needs and worked openly with us to align our expectations with the commercial realities of the current market. His ability to communicate our vision and concept to landlords - even before we were in a position to reveal our brand name or concept drawings - has been critical in sourcing sites for Pizza Craft in Queensland. This has resulted in securing lease opportunities with positive commercial terms in highly desirable retail locations that reflect our brand and target demographic. In a very competitive fast casual dining market this has been an exceptional outcome."

"I’m a big believer in working with people who have the right skills and expertise for the job at hand. You wouldn’t cut your own hair, so why would you negotiate your own commercial lease? Kyle had so much more knowledge then we did in finding the right site for our studio. He had a checklist of things he’d work through with each site until we found the one that ticked all the boxes. He then had the negotiating expertise to ensure the best lease for our business was put in place. I tell everybody wanting to open an Studio Pilates International studio that they must get Kyle and The Leasing Department involved."

“Kyle surpassed our expectations. He delivered results that best suited our company and demonstrated brilliant work ethics. He provided a personalised approach for our small business.”
