The Property Graduate Emerging Talent Award is awarded to the graduate who has had the biggest impact on their company and the industry since graduating with a Bachelor of Property. The judges were looking for someone who has demonstrated potential and ambition to reach the top.
A negotiator in CBRE’s Agribusiness team, Johnston transacts various assets including forestry, horticulture, farmland and quarrying properties throughout New Zealand. He has been involved in many high value and complex negotiations and is well regarded by clients due to his hard work, professionalism, enthusiasm and warmth.
Andrew Stringer, Senior Managing Director for CBRE New Zealand, said that this award was testament to Johnston’s positive and professional attitude.
“Wyatt is extremely talented with an outstanding future. He applies his sound understanding of property fundamentals gained through his studies to deliver progressive results for his clients.”
Jeremy Keating, Senior Director of CBRE Agribusiness, agrees and adds, “While dedicated to progressing his career, Wyatt also gives back to his peers, the industry and the community. He is an active contributor to career development and networking events for young professionals and a keen attendee at CBRE Cares volunteer days.”
As part of CBRE’s strong longstanding relationship with The University of Auckland, Stringer also announced the recipient of its Property Scholarship 2019 to current University of Auckland student, Hetu Shah.
Stringer said, “The CBRE Scholarship programme is very rewarding in that it enables us to support promising young students and introduce them to the industry. Hetu has worked part time at CBRE in the South Auckland office and is currently on exchange at the University of California.
“Hetu stood out due to his impressive results and passion for the industry. His proactivity and professionalism are particularly impressive, evident in his ability to simultaneously intern for CBRE in Los Angeles while studying abroad.”
