North East’s most active agent for 5th consecutive year

Marketing / 3 Dec, 15

We have been named the Most Active commercial property Agent in the North East by Estates Gazette for the fifth year running.

In the past year, our North East agency teams have let or sold a total of 700,000 sq ft of commercial, retail and industrial space across the region.

We were awarded the title, which is widely regarded as one of the top accolades for real estate agents, for transactions completed between September 1, 2014 and August 31, 2015.

Head of commercial agency, Robert Patterson, said: “To win this award for the fifth consecutive year is testament to the hard work and dedication of the agency team working across Newcastle and the Tees Valley.

“Our expertise, local knowledge and full service agency offer means we are best placed to advise across several sectors. The North East agency teams are entirely focused on securing the best deals for our clients and we are delighted to be recognised for that commitment once again.

“We have seen considerable resurgence in the investment and office market in the past 12 months, particularly in business park locations where demand is very high. The retail and leisure sector also remains buoyant and we are pleased to have been able to secure transactions recently for Pure Gym and The Money Shop.”

Our industrial team have been particularly active with partner Richard Scott concluding several high profile deals ranging from a 47,000 sq ft premises in Gateshead to a 14-acre site in Ashington.

Richard added: “Whilst this demand demonstrates a return of confidence to occupiers in the industrial property market in the North East, the supply of industrial space is now at critical levels to such an extent there are no existing Grade A industrial buildings of 50,000 sq ft available or under construction.

“The future is likely to see the emergence of a stronger pre let / sale market which we haven’t really seen in the region before.”
