At the forefront of Australian real estate, Michael Hanscomb has created a boutique experience in the retail sector - propelling the Belle Property brand to being recognised as a market leader. It's Michael's in-depth knowledge of Australian real estate and his sheer determination that underpins what has already been a highly successful career.
With an extensive background in commercial, retail and industrial real estate, Michael joined the family business in 2017 to establish the Belle Property Commercial franchisee business. With six offices nationally, Michael has since turned to his passion for retail to build the Belle Property Retail brand. A brand that is geared to be the number one specialist retail agency in the country.
Before joining Belle Property, Michael worked for leading industry companies across Australia for over 13 years. He led strategic marketing campaigns for over 30 major projects and has negotiated major brokerage leasing and sales transactions.
Starting his career in commercial property, Michael worked at Colliers International in the office leasing and industrial teams in Brisbane. Michael then spent nine years at CBRE working across Brisbane, the Gold Coast, and Sydney, and was a Director of their CBD Retail Division Nationally. Michael won numerous awards in his time at CBRE; the five-time recipient of the Number 1 CBRE Retail Agent in Australia award, the three-time recipient of the Million Dollar Club award, a two-time recipient of the Circle of Excellence National Winner, CBRE Queensland Rookie of the Year and the Second Top Fee Writer in Queensland.
Michael then went on to work for Knight Frank, overseeing the National Retail Leasing Division, making it the most profitable division within their Australian network. Throughout his time at Colliers International, CBRE and Knight Frank, Michael has worked across a broad section of private and institutional landlords, including Grosvenor and Leighton, Charter Hall, GPT, ISPT, Marquette, Tattersalls Club, Abacus, Combes and Drivas Group, QIC, Frasers, Workcover and Events.
Now, part of Belle Property, Michael is focused on building the retail arm of the business and bringing a fresh approach to the retail sector throughout Queensland and across Australia.
