AXIA, A COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE ADVISORY ALTERNATIVE TO THE RURAL COMMUNITY

As published in Newdegate Machinery Field Day Program, Wednesday, 1st September 2021.

Created by former national director at Jones Lang LaSalle, Wayne Mitsikas, along with leasing director, Adam Musbah, and asset management director, Sharon Chang, this team of savvy directors had a clear vision when they established Axia Corporate Property 10 years ago; to create a  highly personalised agency housing a group of hand-selected, high-performing directors, each offering long-term experience in property advisory, sales and leasing – with a particular emphasis on advising family offices where long term relationships would engender trust and understanding between client and agent.

Axia isn’t only focused on advising city-based clients. The company also invests specific attention into establishing and maintaining professional relationships with WA’s farming families based in rural and regional locations – in particular, those who require specific commercial investment advice beyond the farm gate.

WA’s southeast Wheatbelt and Great Southern regions are of particular interest to Axia’s advisory team.

Understanding the significance of building trust and lasting relationships among family-owned businesses in rural communities can only be earned from a rural property background, and special projects director, John Garland spent more than 20 years, working alongside his father, John Snr at Garland International.

Specialising in the sale of rural, commercial and lifestyle properties throughout WA, John’s sales embodied pastoral, broad-acre, lifestyle, and horticultural holdings.

Through personal experience, John believes in the need to establish a different kind of advisory and marketing experience for rural based families – connecting those farming families and regional business owners to high-yielding investment opportunities in the city or regional centres, along with offering advice on their existing investment portfolios and providing a personalised property management service.

With John bringing over 30 years’ property experience, and Wayne Mitsikas’ earlier career as a Bunbury-based State valuer, Axia Corporate Property boasts collective kudos specialising in rural and regional commercial property that comfortably spans over many decades.

Added to this is the advantage of its close connections with Perth’s “Institutional Terrace” agents which brings a broad field of contact throughout the property industry normally inaccessible to families located well outside the metro area, in addition to introducing market opportunities and early awareness of forthcoming sales.

“We understand the dynamic associated with family businesses and the ‘office advisory collective’ that comes with owning rural and regional properties,” Mr Garland says.

“We bring trusted commercial advice to the family, working alongside their accountant, farm advisors and lawyers, to ensure we reach results that everyone is comfortable with.

“On occasion, we see great seasons in rural and regional areas, so business owners are keen to invest.

“We do all the leg-work and assist in all parts of the of the property process. Our relationship takes on a much deeper level as we search out market opportunities in what is a now a very buoyant market,” Mr Garland continues.

Local solicitors recently appointed Axia Corporate Property as the trusted advisors to manage the sale of a 27,000acre deceased estate, consisting of rural farmland and sub-division property in Lancelin, once owned by Texan entrepreneur and philanthropist, Joseph Matthews.

This transaction is testament to Axia Corporate Property’s acumen in building trusting relationships and delivering professional, well-researched outcomes for the trustees of the estate.
