Lambert Smith Hampton acquires award winning specialist


Lambert Smith Hampton, part of Countrywide plc, has reinforced its impressive national specialist credentials with the announcement today that it has acquired Lincolnshire's number one commercial property agency.

Hodgson Elkington is the largest surveying practice in Lincoln and the county’s most active commercial adviser. It is widely recognised for its breadth and depth of expertise, particularly in Commercial property agency, commercial and residential development land, property management, where it has over 4,000 occupiers paying rents and service charges; and its professional work of valuations and rent reviews, where it is the region’s number one. Last year alone, it advised on over £1 billion of real estate and is currently active on over 300 acres of development land. The business acts for both the private and public sector.

Commenting on the latest acquisition, Lambert Smith Hampton’s enterprising CEO, Ezra Nahome, said: “We are building the UK and Ireland's most progressive commercial property consultancy: strengthening the business through targeted acquisitions that have talented individuals who share our ambition is fundamental to our strategy. We are committed to providing further insight for our clients and the market intelligence they need.  We are driven and we know this is what makes us stand out and why we continue to win market share."

Lambert Smith Hampton’s Head of East and West Midlands, Adam Ramshaw, was key to identifying the opportunity: “I'm proud of our strategy to become the leading national property consultancy.  It enables me to identify opportunities and join with specialists to expand our offer to clients.
“Lambert Smith Hampton has a strong enterprising culture and I have no doubt that our new colleagues will relish the prospect of becoming part of a business with such a clear vision and enterprising spirit.”
Sam Elkington - Hodgson Elkington’s Senior Partner and one of the founders of Hodgson Elkington - will become head of Lambert Smith Hampton’s Lincoln office.  Sam Elkington said: “We have seen our business grow every year from its inception including during the recession.  We also have an extremely exciting future ahead of us. I am pleased that the whole Hodgson Elkington team is transferring across to Lambert Smith Hampton as part of the deal. Lambert Smith Hampton is one of the industry’s most ambitious operators and there is a real buzz about the place.  There is a lot that we can achieve together and we are looking forward to joining forces with one of the country’s fastest growing consultancies. We have won a number of national awards over recent years and see this deal as an opportunity to further enhance the breadth of our services offered to clients.”
