Ron Newton has always believed that it is imperative that specialist properties be valued by specialist Valuers who are able to provide the necessary level of experience, expertise and determination to achieve the highest level of professional service to clients.

Newtons have been regarded as Australia’s foremost experts in Petrol  Station Valuations and related properties, including Truck Stops and Service Centres, Convenience Stores and Convenience Centres, Fast Food Outlets, Car Washes, Main Road Development Sites and Fuel Depots, etc., for more that three decades and have been regularly instructed to carry out valuations by major Oil Companies, Independent Fuel Retailers, all Major Banks, Financiers, Government Departments, and Individual Clients for a wide range of purposes… Just ask anyone in the industry!

In November 2014, Ron merged his Valuation business into Opteon Victoria, which has enabled him to provide a more timely and better specialist service to both long established and new clients. As a Head of Petroleum, Ron remains actively involved in all petrol station and related property valuations undertaken by Opeton Victoria, throughout Australia – except WA.

Ron’s Opteon team includes three experienced senior valuers, Daniel Shears, Rebecca Hare and Joshua Fulton, with back up from Glenn Boyd (Deputy Head of Commercial).
