The evolution of KordaMentha’s Real Estate division presents exciting growth opportunities for its investment group. Real Estate Partner, Tom Davis, stated, “We are pleased to welcome Nick and Tom, expanding the team as the business positions for an exciting new phase.”

Nick Crockett and Tom Korda will join the team, bringing extensive experience and networks to enhance the group’s product offering and investor base.

Appointed as an Executive Director, Nick Crockett has over 15 years’ experience with global transactions spanning Australia, Asia, Europe and the United States. His deep capital networks will help broaden the firm’s wholesale networks, both onshore and offshore.

Prior to joining the KordaMentha’s Real Estate team, Nick held several senior roles in Australia and Singapore, most recently as Head of Capital for Cadence Property Group. He has extensive experience in sourcing, closing and managing different capital strategies, including asset-based structures, programmatic ventures and commingled funds.

With roles as a Responsible Manager for a wholesale Australian Financial Services Licensee, and similar roles with the Monetary Authority of Singapore and the Securities and Futures Commission of Hong Kong, Nick brings extensive knowledge and experience with compliance frameworks across various jurisdictions.

Tom Korda joins the firm as a Director with over 10 years’ experience in asset management and transaction management, including roles with Quintessential Equity and Cadence Property Group.

Tom has assisted clients with all facets of asset management from due diligence to exit, including transacting properties, formulating and maintaining asset strategies, and managing leasing, valuations, cash flows and property teams. He has significant experience identifying and mitigating property risk prior to purchase and applying micro-level assessments to identify assets with entrapped intrinsic value.

Tom was successful in transacting $100 million of investment and development properties in the 12 months leading up to his commencement at KordaMentha and, over the past decade, has developed a significant network of strong agency relationships that will open new acquisition opportunities for investors.

Tom Davis said, “We are excited to leverage our existing investment platform with the addition of Nick and Tom, who will further enhance our specialist advisory and investments business across acquisitions, asset management, capital raising, deal structuring and investment management.”
