PROMINENT land valuers and advisors Taylor Byrne and ASX-listed Landmark White have merged, forming one of the largest valuation entities in Australia.
LMW is one of Australia’s largest independent property valuation and property consultancy firms with 350 employees working throughout offices across Australia.
Taylor Byrne was established in 1960 and has since grown to become one of Australia’s leading rural property valuation firms. Across its 27 Australian offices (14 in Queensland, 12 in New South Wales and one in Adelaide), the company has more than 150 staff making it one of the largest single entity valuation firms in Australia.
“From a rural perspective the strength of Taylor Byrne’s Agribusiness division which includes a total of 25 rural valuers, combined with LMW’s national scale will bring substantial strategic benefits from a combination of the two businesses, Taylor Byrne national agribusiness director Lachlan Dunsdon said.
Mr Dunsdon said the merger would translate into benefits and opportunities for customers, staff and other stakeholders, and the result would be the largest ASX-listed property valuation services business in Australia.
“For now, it is very much ‘business as usual’,” he said. “There is no immediate impact on our business or daily operations, and the merged entity will continue the focus on improving the range and quality of services offered to customers.”
“We would like to thank the thousands of rural clients that have welcomed our valuers into their homes and trusted our company to provide reliable valuation advice over the past 58 years, and look forward to continuing this relationship into the future under the LMW stewardship,” Mr Dunsdon said.
