One of Sydney’s leading retail and commercial property specialists has joined the LJ Hooker Commercial network’s South Sydney office.

LJ Hooker Commercial South Sydney’s Managing Director Daniel O’Brien today announced a joint venture with Michael Hocking of the Landon Group which will strengthen the franchise’s Asset Management division.

Mr Hocking brings to the partnership extensive senior leadership experience within the property divisions of Woolworths Supermarkets, Dan Murphy’s and Dick Smith.

Mr Hocking is currently Managing Director of Landon Group which covers the full spectrum of property management and asset management services for property owners.

Mr Hocking said he was very excited to reconnect with Mr O’Brien, with whom he shares a long working relationship.

“Daniel and I have known each other for many years and worked together on many deals while I was at Woolworths. Daniel has a unique insight into client needs and that’s influenced the growth of the professional asset management team he leads at LJ Hooker Commercial South Sydney.

“I’m excited to bring the landlord connections and market knowledge I’ve made over the past 12 years to the team and help build and service the portfolio of retail and commercial properties under its management.
“At Landon Group, our portfolio is continually expanding and incorporates residential strata buildings, commercial offices, warehouses, factories, shopping centres and commercial units”.

Mr O’Brien said: “In addition to Michael’s extensive knowledge of commercial asset management, he also has strong relationships with most of the owners who now have these major retailers as their tenants, having personally negotiated scores of commercial leases over the years for Woolworths over a 12-year period”.
 
“I am extremely happy to have someone of Michael’s stature and experience joining our office.”
