Lease Equity Continues to Grow.

Lease Equity is one of Australia’s leading leasing and property management agencies. The company’s growth is continuing with some recent appointments.

We have steadily grown our team over the past 17 years to more than 30 staff, attracting some of the best and most experienced professionals in the industry.

The company has brokered over $2B of property transactions in leasing, sales and property management in the past 12 months. Supporting this growth, we have made the following recent appointments;



Steve Cuzens | General Manager

Steve brings over 30 years’ experience in the property industry in Western Australia specialising in retail property. Steve has held roles as Managing Director of private equity firm Atlas Point and National Leasing Manager at Savills.

Steve adds to the significant experience at Lease Equity and has been appointed to assist the existing team to continue to support its clients and assist Managing Director Jim Tsagalis in expanding the business substantially over the next 3 years.

“I admired Steve’s skill as a competitor for over 20 years and am delighted to have him join us as General Manager. With a strong leasing background and his understanding of portfolio retail management he adds another level of experience that’s invaluable for adding value for our clients” said Managing Director, Jim Tsagalis.

Managing Director, Jim Tsagalis said “Jared’s can-do attitude and enthusiasm for the business makes Jared a great addition to our team in a retail environment, where both qualities are needed to get results. With youth on his side he also brings down the average age of our leasing executives!”


Zoe Tsagalis | Research Analyst

Research and analysis are the cornerstone of the decisions we make. We simply can’t add value to our clients without a full understanding of the markets we work in.

With her recent completion of a Bachelor of Commerce and extensive experience in marketing and research roles, Zoe joined the team at Lease Equity as Research Analyst. Zoe is well equipped with the analytical and financial modelling skills to undertake this role.


Managing Director, Jim Tsagalis stated that the appointments were made primarily to support what Lease Equity consider to be the best retail leasing team in Australia. Jim added that in the current retail climate, owners of retail property are now more than ever before reliant on the acumen and knowledge of professional leasing executives capable of reading the centres requirements and the market. We have a team that we believe is second to none.
