Fenn Wright’s commercial property team in Ipswich scoops two EGi Awards 2017
Fenn Wright has won two prestigious accolades in Estates Gazette’s EGi Awards 2017. The national industry awards celebrate the most active commercial agents in securing sales or lettings for the previous 12 months, with Fenn Wright scooping both the EGi Most Active Agent Award, Suffolk and EGi Dealmaker Award, Suffolk which has been accredited to Mark Drummond of Fenn Wright, for his personal success over the past year.
The Estates Gazette split all commercial transactions completed throughout the country into regions, with Fenn Wright receiving the regional award for being the most active commercial agent in Suffolk for four years out of the last five.
The annual awards, by Estates Gazette, the UK’s highly respected and principal journal for the commercial property world, are fiercely contested.
Alistair Mitchell, partner at Fenn Wright said: “We are delighted to have received this award again and to be recognised as the leading commercial agent in the county. A combination of our local knowledge, results oriented team and enthusiasm help us to achieve the best for our clients.
“Despite the political and economic events of 2016, the commercial property market in Essex and Suffolk remained very robust with good levels of demand across most sectors from owner/occupiers, investors and tenants. Over the course of the year we sold, let or acquired a total of 192 properties across the region, equating to a total sales value of just under £37m and combined rents amounting to just under £3m.”
Commenting on winning the EGi Dealmaker Award, Suffolk for the fourth year running, commercial property agent, Mark Drummond said: “I am delighted to receive this award. The level of transactions achieved personally and by our agency team has increased year on year and is testament to the improving strength of the local market and our commitment to achieving the best results for our clients.”
Following a very strong commercial property market throughout 2016, the first quarter of 2017 provides no indication that this trend is likely to change. Fenn Wright’s commercial team continues to be instructed on a wide variety of commercial properties across Suffolk, and East Anglia more widely.
