A familiar face in the local rural real estate industry will be treading a different path with news that Tim Ward has moved on from Paull and Scollard to take up a new challenge.

Tim has been a respected member of the Paull & Scollard team for the past eight years, and has worked in real estate for 15 years.

His new role as associate director, agribusiness, with CBRE – the world’s largest real estate service – will put his extensive sales experience and a lifetime of farm management experience to good use.

“I just felt it was the right time for a new challenge and a fresh start,” he said.

“The last eight years with Paull Scollard has been great but I’m looking forward to concentrating on agribusiness and to be able help both the vendor and purchaser complete a smooth transaction.

“The opportunity with CBRE just happened to arrive at the right time and the fit was right,” he said.

Tim has enjoyed a rural life since childhood – growing up on Woomargama Station which his father managed for 30 years.

After finishing agricultural college at Glenormiston, Tim and his brother operated their own livestock contracting business for 13 years before Tim found the real estate bug, or it found him.

A conversation with a local stock and station agent inspired him to move to Melbourne to cut his teeth in the industry before returning two years later to take up a position with the company.

Since then he has moved on to specialise in rural sales and his latest move will see him wholly focused on agricultural transactions.

“I will be operating on both sides of the (Murray) river and throughout the Riverina, north-east Victoria and the Upper Murray district.”

He said CBRE were looking to establish a bigger footprint in regional NSW and will specialise in straight rural sales and leasing from small holdings through to large scale operations.

Col Medway, director and in charge of the NSW team said Tim’s appointment was part of CBRE’s strategy for continual growth.

“The CBRE Agribusiness advantage is a deep understanding of the capital flows in and out within Australian agriculture and we have developed a remarkable ability of facilitating these capital movements. 

“We provide deep local knowledge, along with national and international markets,” he said. 

CBRE Agribusiness has 60 dedicated people Australia wide with half being agents involved in transactions and half being involved in valuation and advisory services.
