High profile recruit for CBRE’s fast growing Residential Agency team

CBRE has further strengthened its highly successful Residential Agency team with the appointment of leading sales professional James Hall.

Mr Hall will commence with CBRE on July 8 as a Director in the Agency business, working alongside existing Residential Agency Directors Robert Alfeldi and Caroline Fagerlund.

CBRE established its Residential Agency team last year as an extension of its well-established Residential Projects business. The Agency team provides full real estate services, including guidance on sales and purchases, with a focus on the luxury market.

Mr Alfeldi said Mr Hall’s strong track record and global client relationships would serve to further strengthen CBRE’s fast-growing Residential Agency platform, which has been involved in a range of high-profile Sydney transactions.

These include record sales including a one-bedroom Sydney Wharf, Pyrmont apartment ($2.3m); a two-bedroom Kirribilli penthouse ($5.9m); a Bellevue Hill mansion transaction ($15m), a penthouse sale in Potts Point’s Omnia tower ($14.2m) and a northern end apartment sale at Sydney Wharf ($10m). 

“James is a proven performer in the premium residential space in Australia and across the broader Asia Pacific market. The appointment adds further firepower to our Residential Agency team given James’ experience launching over 250 residential projects in Australia, Japan and the UK,” Mr Alfeldi said.

CBRE Residential Chairman Justin Brown added; “The Residential Agency platform adds a further dimension to our service offering. James will be a perfect conduit linking our global business, enhancing the level of service we provide to our premium clients.” 

Mr Hall has over 23 years of real estate experience, including senior roles with Colliers International, Knight Frank and CBRE.

He was most recently Managing Director, International Properties, for Colliers International’s Asia business following a prior role at CBRE, where he served as Regional Director, International Project Marketing, based in Hong Kong.

Prior to that, Mr Hall was National Residential Director for Knight Frank Australia, following a role with Christies Great Estates, where he set several residential price records.
