“Collection House was introduced to CR Commercial Property Group (CR) back in August 2007 and have enjoyed a fantastic partnership ever since.
From the very first job Nicole Duncan and her team attended to, we have experienced top quality services at a fair price.
It is always refreshing in business to have truly trusted partners where client time does not need to be spent constantly checking that value is being delivered – and CR has been the epitome of a real business partner who have acted in our interests without fail.
In the past nine years, CR has fully managed 8 office relocations/office renovations and in each case negotiated favourable lease/end of lease terms which have either met or exceeded our expectations. This has included two relocations of our Headquarters (eight years apart), most recently to the 8,000sqm Skyring Terrace Newstead office, which features what we think is the most fabulous office fitout in Brisbane City!
We have enjoyed the fact that CR have been able to provide a full service encompassing project management, design and fitout, as well as tenant advisory services prior to, during and at end of leases.
Collection House expects to continue working with CR for years to come, and commends them fully to any organisations who are seeking a trusted business partner who can competently assist with tenancy and office relocations and renovations.”
– Matthew Thomas. Managing Director & CEO at Collection House. June 2016.
Thank you! You’ve been so supportive over the years it is difficult to put a price on the work you’ve done for us, not to mention that I’ve learnt so much in working with you.
I am conscious of how hard it was for you guys given the specific requirement we had but you never gave up and just kept it positive and moving forward. For that I’m very grateful.
The staff are very happy and you can see from the photos the other day that we are up and operational and running fully.”

“Ladies – just wanted to drop a line and let you know how impressed I have been over the past 2 months with your support, service and aligned culture in getting us through the choppy waters of relocation. We have no estates expertise in house, but your professional, patient and tireless attention to detail have given us extreme confidence that we are in great hands, which is a huge relief, given all the turmoil and distractions we have currently in our business. A vote of thanks from our Australian Leadership team as well, some of whom have been through the ‘move scenario’ before and are very grateful and impressed that “it’s all happening around them” allowing them to continue with BAU. Thank you for everything so far and good luck with our move this weekend – you are an amazing team and we are appreciate having you on our side.”

You have brought to our project the professionalism needed to achieve the outcome of providing a state of the art office facility, personalised to our needs and desires, within the tight timeframes provided. Our project manager, Paul, has learnt so much from your engagement with the developers and tradespeople, along with your positive can do attitude to creating outcomes, not accepting excuses.
Your personal commitment, and ability to marshal the troops to support you when needed was very impressive, again, a key factor in meeting our drop dead move date. I look forward to the next opportunity for us to create another spectacular work environment.”
