Tim Crooks

Director of New Developments
"A passion for accommodation properties is my blood. I’m especially passionate about getting new projects off the ground, whether it’s a hotel or apartment complex. A management rights component can help with that. It’s a unique model that offers a win-win for all stakeholders."

ResortBrokers Director of New Developments Tim Crooks specialises in off-the-plan management rights sales and plays a key role in driving growth of the family business started by his father Ian in 1985.

Since joining ResortBrokers in 2008, Tim has forged a solid reputation as one of Australia’s foremost experts in off-the-plan permanent residential and short-term accommodation management rights and hotels in major apartment projects.

His landmark 2017 sale to Mantra Group of the management rights to Gurner’s FV high-rise in Brisbane for $28 million was the largest off-the-plan management rights transaction in Australia. Tim’s other notable sales include the Art Series Hotel portfolio of five hotels and two management rights, and the 715-apartment Newstead Towers by Metro Property.

Tim’s expertise includes the evaluation, set up, marketing and sale of the business and associated real estate. He regularly consults with leading developers across Australia, including Deague Group, Gurner, Frasers, Abacus, Golden Age, Aria, Metro Property and Consolidated Properties Group.

In recent years, Tim has been instrumental in growing the management rights market beyond its traditional Queensland base to NSW, Victoria and elsewhere. The increasing acceptance of the management rights model by the hotel industry has resulted in Tim’s expertise being actively sought by hotel operators across Australia.

“Management rights is now a $8 billion industry,” says Tim. “The industry is developing beyond Queensland as an understanding of the model and the opportunities it presents continues to grow.”
