With a long-standing background in the property industry and as a trained RAAF and commercial pilot, Senior Leasing Executive, Tony Martin, brings a defined skill set to his role at Belle Property Retail Brisbane.
Tony’s leadership skills are being utilised to develop and train Belle Property Retail Brisbane’s growing team of Leasing Executives. And his keen interest in the re-development and re-positioning of existing assets, is a defining part of his role. This interest extends to the strategic optimisation of tenancy profiles according to area demographics and market analysis.
Tony has completed a graduate program in Real Estate and Development at the University of Queensland, and a cadetship at Richardson & Wrench Commercial. During this time, he gained experience in several asset sectors, and at the age of 19, he completed his first multi-million-dollar investment sale. Primarily focussing on commercial and industrial property, Tony was able to hone his skills across sales and leasing; valuable knowledge that has been retained and refined since.
Having left real estate in his early twenties, Tony joined the RAAF to pursue a career in flying. After successfully completing his Pilots’ course he went on to captain VIP transport aircraft and has flown the Australian Prime Minister, Australian and foreign Government ministers, high ranking ADF personnel and media contingents across Australia and neighbouring regions.
Tony also accumulated significant management and leadership experience as an Air Force officer outside of the flight deck. He has led and participated in major teams during exercises and advised senior officers on the implantation of various policies and assisted with the development, planning and implementation of management strategies. He left the RAAF with the rank of Flight Lieutenant.
Pursuing a career in commercial aviation, Tony flew the Airbus A320 for Tigerair and the Boeing 787 for QANTAS. His experience in the airlines saw extensive operations across Australia domestically and internationally to the USA and Europe. A focus on effective teamwork, adherence to defined processes, and advanced problem-solving are all skills that can be directly applied to his role at Belle Property Retail Brisbane.
