Property professionals from across Australia have been honoured at the 27th annual Excellence in Agency Awards for their outstanding contribution to Dexus’s leasing and transaction success.

There were 38 finalists involved in leasing and property transactions for the 2020-21 financial years on behalf of Dexus or its third party capital partners.

Dexus CEO, Darren Steinberg said: “Despite the disruption of the pandemic, Dexus has been able to maintain its performance across its property portfolio. These awards recognise the strong contribution and support of our agency partners during these times, resulting in high occupancy levels across our industrial and office businesses.

In addition, this calendar year we secured approval for the merger of the $5.4 billion AMP Diversified Property Fund with Dexus Wholesale Property Fund and completed the $2.9 billion acquisition of APN Property Group.”
