Mike Franklin B.Sc. MRICS
Managing Director

I am passionate about providing conflict-free, innovative and highly professional real estate advice to commercial and industrial occupiers. With over 30 years tenant advisory and tenant representation experience in Australian and overseas markets I have seen every twist and turn conceivable in commercial real estate and technology, allowing me to counsel our clients about trends and long-term vision. Occupier-focused advisory and transactional services have been my specialty throughout my career and I will refine and negotiate real estate contracts until I am satisfied your company’s best interests have been met.

As a qualified Chartered Surveyor I worked for many years at Director level for larger, multi-national real estate service providers and identified a growing need for truly independent corporate real estate advice. leading to the launch of Franklin Property Consulting in 2011. In 2014, to service the needs of a wide range of multi-national clients and to provide a comprehensive advisory service, Franklin Property Consulting and Chapman Shanks merged to create Franklin Shanks.

Throughout life I have worked hard at creating a true work / life balance that allows me to provide rounded advice to my clients. As a keen blue water sailor with trans-Atlantic and trans-Pacific crossings under my belt I am a lateral thinker and problem solver.
