Ron Newton established Newtons in January 1981, operating both a Commercial Agency and Valuation business. Within a short time Newtons grew to become Australian’s foremost experts in service stations and related properties, incorporating both Valuation and Agency activities… just ask anyone in the industry.
In November 2014 Ron merged his Valuation business into Opteon Victoria, whose outstanding IT platform and personnel enable the petroleum division to provide a superior professional service to both Ron’s long established and new clients.
As Head of Petroleum, Ron now heads up a strong team of experienced senior valuers, providing a valuation service throughout Australia (except W.A.)
Ron still operates his Agency activities from South Yarra where he has handled hundreds of petrol station transactions over the years, including sales of freehold investments, going concerns, development sites, etc., by private sale, or at auction, in addition to leasing and wide ranging consultancy services.
Over the last decade almost 100% of all properties put to auction have sold either before or on the day… an outstanding achievement.
