Our size has allowed us to operate without needing to establish independent departments and cost centres. Consequently we are able to promote an excellent cross-flow of expertise across all disciplines, delivering a better outcome for our Clients.
We offer the following services:
Site Searches Acquisitions Disposals
Our Clients benefit from our pro-active, intelligent approach to marketing. We don’t adopt a ‘sit back and wait’ attitude, instead we try to maximise returns by finding additional income streams and reducing holding costs during the marketing phase. We have undertaken site searches and acquired property in almost every major town and city across the UK. We have amassed considerable expertise in delivering the right property – from small leaseholds to Audi West London, the largest dealership site in the UK. If aspirations are unrealistic we are not afraid to say so and we work closely with our Clients to find deliverable solutions within the desired time-frame and budget.
