Liverpool commercial property agency Mason Partners pays tribute to founding partner Geoff Mason who has died aged 83. Tony McDonough reports
One of the best known names in Liverpool’s commercial property sector, Geoff Mason, has died aged 83.
Geoff was founding partner of Mason Partners and, prior to that, had founded Mason Owen, along with Barry Owen, in 1967. Mason Partners announced his passing on Linked In on Tuesday, describing him as a “property market pioneer”.
In 1993 Geoff founded Mason Partners which recently celebrated its 30th anniversary. He was the UK’s first out of town retail property agent acting for retailers including MFI, Kwik Save and Iceland.
He also acted for developers such as Eddie Healey, Albert Gubay and the Richardsons. He was the original letting agent on Meadowhall and Merry Hill Shopping centres.
In the statement, Mason Partners said: “Geoff loved his long and incredibly successful career in property where his enthusiasm, knowledge, determination and hard work shone brightly.
“Geoff was an inspiration to many after five decades in the property industry and will be dearly missed. Everyone at Mason Partners would like to share our deepest sympathies with Geoff’s family and friends.
His funeral will be a private ceremony with only close family members present. At a later date, arrangements will be made in Liverpool to celebrate Geoff’s life, details of which will be posted in due course.
