Principle

Graham Potts

As founding Director of Amalgamated Property Group (APG) and several associated entities, Graham has certainly made his mark on the Australian real estate sector. Since establishing APG in 2002, Graham has taken a distinctly hands-on role – actively involved in all current developments, while also sourcing new opportunities for the future. It’s in no small part thanks to Graham that APG now has become a well-respected name in the industry, with a workbook worth in excess of $1 Billion. While his achievements with APG are impressive, these are just the most recent milestones in Graham’s 40-year career – during which he’s delivered over 5,000 apartments and 200,000m2 of office space nationally. Starting out in real estate in 1979, Graham spent 15 years transforming a small suburban agency into an eight-office enterprise with over 200 staff, ultimately heading up the business as Managing Director and majority shareholder. Subsequently, Graham was founding Director of Madison Constructions, which designed, developed and built over a thousand properties in the 1990s – and he was also Chairman and Managing Director of the Independent Property Group. Today, Graham has accumulated a depth and breadth of experience that few in the property game possess. In addition to his knowledge across development, construction and marketing Graham also has unwavering focus and the foresight that allows him to stay ahead of trends – a crucial asset in this ever-changing marketplace.
