SENTINEL Property Group celebrated the biggest year in the leading Queensland syndicator’s history on Saturday with an awards night Christmas party at snazzy Valley club Cloudland. Sentinel staff, management and investors have had plenty to be excited about in 2022, with the nonlisted real estate investment trust outlaying more than $800m on new assets, including almost $700m on market-dominating retail centres in Darwin and Mackay. There were also some astute divestments by the group, such as the $89m sale of a waterfront bulk storage industrial facility at Pinkenba for over $40m more than the asset was purchased for less than five years earlier.

Sentinel chief experience officer Michael “The Professor” Sherlock was master of ceremony for the awards element on Saturday that was inspired by the Victoria Bitter “tag a mate” advertising campaign, with categories such as “Blokes Who Peaked in High School” and the “Firebreak Award” for those with receding hairlines.

Snappy dressing Sentinel CEO Warren “The Property Whisperer” Ebert was nominated for the Imelda Marcos Award, presumably in recognition of his extensive shoe collection. He lost out, though, to leasing team member Sophie Belle.

Ebert says he is proud of how Sentinel has performed coming out of the pandemic, and staff numbers have quadrupled this year to accommodate the growth in the group’s business, which is focused on northern Australia.

“I started Sentinel in 2010 and the first property we bought was an industrial building in Archerfield for $18m,” Ebert says. “Since then, we’ve bought just over $3bn worth of property.”
