Colliers project marketing moves to the next level

"The promotion is a new chapter in my life and I relish the opportunity to create the best project marketing team in the business," he said.

Mr Langfield took up a position as a sales consultant selling apartments off-the-plan with Colliers International in 2003 before quickly climbing the corporate ladder.

He was promoted to sales manager in 2004 and associate director in 2006. "This position has been my career goal for the past five years – years that I viewed as an exceptional opportunity to learn and absorb as much as possible," he said.

Mr Langfield draws on a wealth of experience having been involved in 15 residential projects over the past five years from conception, through to release and completion.

"I have benefited from exposure to clients and experiences that would normally have taken many more years to acquire," he said.

"Colliers International has exposed me to a huge knowledge base and given me the opportunity to work with the leaders in project marketing, residential and commercial real estate," he said.

Mr Langfield described his first few days in the top job as long but exciting.

"My primary role is to engage with residential developers providing product and marketing advice from conception through to the sell-out of the project," Mr Langfield said.

He admits it's a challenging time for project marketing but it's an opportunity for quality projects that represent good investment to stand out from the crowd.

Mr Langfield believes that developers should turn to Colliers International in times of economic uncertainty.

"We are what we say. "Our Knowledge is your property". Our knowledge base, sales results and service excellence is unrivalled. Given the current economic climate, we have the experience and resources to provide the right solution to create the best sales result," he said.

Mr Langfield has been in sales for most of his working life including the operation of a triathlon and life coaching business – the largest and most successful triathlon training squad in Brisbane at that time.

"I was introduced to real estate at a young age purchasing, selling and developing with my parents,' he said.

Colliers International residential managing director Grant Dearlove said it was no surprise Mr Langfield had succeeded in being named director.

"His achievements are great – having won the 2004 and 2005 national salesperson of the year title for the highest number of transactions and revenue for the company. Followed by Queensland salesperson of the year in 2006," said Mr Dearlove.

Mr Dearlove was convinced Mr Langfield would help developers realize the true potential of their product.

"With the growth of inner and fringe city living, it is an opportune time for Mr Langfield to take over the division," said Mr Dearlove.
