Wadham & Isherwood voted No. 1 in Surrey

POSTED IN General

Winner of the Estates Gazette most active agent in Surrey and runner up – Thames Valley Property Award – Commercial Property Consultancy of the year

Once again Wadham & Isherwood are very proud to announce that we have won the most active commercial agent in Surrey competition for the third year running.

The Wadham’s agency team completed an impressive 212 lettings / in 2013 equating to an annual rent role of just under £4.5M with sales totalling approximately £12 million from 19 sales.  The lack of freehold disposals reflects the wider market trend with property owners choosing to hold on to assets rather than have the money sitting in a bank earning a poor return.

Nick Reeve, Director (Farnham) commented “As a firm we are delighted to have won this prestigious award once again.  Whilst the market is undoubtedly improving and vacancy levels are dropping deals are still taking a long time to complete and our team have had to work much harder to get them across the finishing line.  Demand from both property owners and occupiers for good quality, modern well located properties has remained reasonably strong throughout the downturn and we are now starting to see this improvement spread throughout the Surrey and Hampshire region”.

In addition to the most active agent in Surrey Award, Wadham & Isherwood were also named as the third most active office agent in the South East (excluding London) which saw a total take up of 9,466,903 sq.ft.

In April, Wadham & Isherwood were also shortlisted for the prestigious Thames Valley Property Award 2014 Commercial Property Consultancy of the year.  Amazingly Wadham & Isherwood were third place runners up behind two of the property industries big hitters, namely Jones Lang Lasalle and Lambert Smith Hampton!

After London the Thames Valley is the second largest property market in the UK by volume of deals and density.  The award was decided by the number of commercial deals transacted throughout 2013.
