Peterborough commercial agents named among top 10 most active
A leading commercial agents in Peterborough is celebrating after being named among the top 10 most active firms nationally and regionally.
Eddisons, incorporating Barker Storey Matthews, has also been ranked as one of the most active firms in the industrial sector as a result of the success of its staff in Peterborough and Cambridge.
The accolade comes from property research specialist, EG Radius, which for the first time, has published mid-year rankings identifying the top 10 dealmakers.
The rankings are based on the number of deals, for all lettings and occupier sales, completed from January 1 to June 25 this year.
Eddisons has been placed in the top 10 in two of the national categories.
They are for the number of deals based on the amount of space sold or leased (82,307 sq ft) and the number of transactions in the industrial sector, which stands at 20.
And its success in the East of England has propelled Eddisons’ agents to four out of the top 10 individual dealmaker positions.
Richard Jones, director of Eddisons in Peterborough, has been named as one of the top 10 individual dealmakers in the national and regional rankings.
He said: “It’s a great achievement for us.
“It’s encouraging to see that, mid-year in 2021, we’re on course with the pace of transactions in what is yet another challenging year - as the complex effects of lockdown and the impact of the pandemic play out.”
One of Eddisons’ successes was the number of deals achieved at the Eagle Business Park, in Yaxley. Over three years 52 businesses have moved to the park and 30 per cent of these are relocations or expansions.
Mr Jones said: “Eagle Business Park reflects the wider industrial property sector market, regionally and nationally.
“April 2019 to April 2020 was a record year. As the pandemic hit we saw levels of deals falling away for the first three months, however we redoubled our efforts and by the year end in April 2021 the levels of deals were only five per cent down on the record.”
