Geoffrey Brown, one of Australia’s most respected property professionals, has joined national real estate and advisory firm LAWD as a shareholder and member of the executive leadership team. Brown will spearhead LAWD’s new Specialist Property Valuations business unit, bringing more than 25 years of experience in the valuation of diverse real estate assets, including agribusiness, rural, commercial, industrial, and residential property.

Brown is widely regarded as one of Australia’s pre-eminent specialist valuers of childcare, educational, and medical facilities, and has extensive experience in compulsory acquisition work and litigation matters. In addition to holding a Bachelor of Business majoring in Property, Brown has been awarded the Advanced Certificate in Real Estate and is a Fellow of the Australian Property Institute, a Certified Practising Valuer, and a Licensed Estate Agent.

LAWD Chief Executive Officer Enda Foley said, “Geoffrey’s appointment will have immediate impact on our capability to deliver a diverse specialist offering and he will be integral to building what we hope will become the nation’s premier specialist valuations unit. We warmly welcome Geoffrey as LAWD continues to expand both its geographic presence and service lines, and are proud to have him work alongside colleagues we believe are some of the best property professionals in the country.”

Brown’s appointment follows LAWD’s recent expansion of its services across professional services, industrial real estate, and metropolitan development, complementing and broadening its foundations in agribusiness, regional residential, and peri-urban development.

Commenting on his new role, Brown said, “I have broad experience in childcare assets, litigation and acquisition and am looking forward to growing these elements of LAWD’s services, along with rental determinations and the valuation of hospitality and medical assets. LAWD is extremely agile and dynamic, and appealed to me as the right cultural fit and next extension of my career. We now have a tremendous opportunity to support the business in its diversification and extraordinary trajectory of growth.”
