About Us

Business owners or senior managers use Australian Lease Management because of their unique ability to analyse and fix problems.
Our extensive experience within the commercial lease and real estate environment ensures we achieve the best results for our clients every time.

Australian Lease Management is a professional services real estate company, providing independent advice to corporate, private and government businesses (for landlords, tenants, developers, vendors and purchasers).

A need was identified in 1993 to provide tenants and landlords with professional, well-researched and unbiased advice on all matters which relate to real estate. Since then, Australian Lease Management has grown to represent clients small and large across Australia and has earned an outstanding reputation by achieving client’s objectives no matter how difficult or complex they may seem.

We strive to build long term relationships with our clients by gaining a clear educated understanding of their business, their needs and their objectives. Only then can we do the best for them.

Brian Scarborough - Director

Brian founded Australian Lease Management in 1993 after a very successful career in the private sector. His qualifications as a valuer along with 40 years’ experience within the real estate industry results in a unique skill set that is sought after by clients Australia wide. His ability to analyse a situation and then provide an efficient and concise solution, makes Brian a great asset to anyone needing guidance or advice. From land tax objections to retail chain national rollouts, Brian’s ability to continually get results has earned him a reputation second to none.

Not only successful in work life, Brian also excels both on the mountain bike and pounding the pavement. He remains extremely active and enjoys the camaraderie these pastimes bring (and is still just a little competitive). A strong believer in work / life balance, he manages to be a devoted husband, and a present father and grandfather to an ever-growing Scarborough clan.

Mark Raphael - Director

Mark began his work life under the wing and tutelage of his father in the family’s successful retail business. It was here where he was taught the many aspects of retail life and more so the importance of pursuing excellence. With over 20 years’ experience owning and running his award-winning retail outlets, he was also responsible for the expansion of his businesses with lease negotiation being a pivotal component. This was where he first met Brian. Mark not only managed his own businesses, but was also involved in an advisory capacity for a national retail group.

Mark joined the Australian Lease Management team in 2008. His clients continue to appreciate his deep understanding of business due to his past experience plus his ability to find solutions to their most challenging problems no matter what the challenges are.

He has a burning desire to continue the ethos Brian instilled from day one in the company of creating balance and equity for all.

His football days are long gone but he continues to try and hold back the years by running marathons and competing in triathlons including completing 10 Ironman events including competing at the world championships in Hawaii. A little less arduous but just as rewarding are the great conversations and numerous coffees with the training crew.
