We have again won the ‘Most Active Agent’ title for Offices and Industrial markets in the South East (excluding London) from leading trade publication, Estates Gazette.
The annual competition collects deal data from across the UK, spanning office, industrial, leisure & hotel, retail and investment market sectors, to award the regional ‘Most Active Agent’ accolades across the country.
For the 13th year running, LSH’s South East office and industrial agents have won the award by a landslide, with the publication itself reporting that “...it will be a long time before LSH loses its crown in the highly-competitive South East market. It has comprehensively out-performed all challengers, thanks to its remarkable performances in offices and industrial.”
More than 1.1m sq ft of offices transacted
Nick Coote, Regional Director in our Office Agency division, commented: “This is an important win for the whole Agency team, and testament to the strong footprint we’ve stamped on the market in recent years. While the lack of grade A office space remains a challenge, there are still deals to be done – demonstrated by the 1.1m+ sq ft of South East office deals completed by our team in the last 12 months.”
3.1m+ sq ft of industrial deals secured
Robin Dickens, Regional Director in our Industrial & Logistics Agency division, added: “LSH’s Industrial and Offices teams have bought home this South East award since the competition began in 2001 – a significant achievement, especially in a recovering but volatile market. Despite this undeniable challenge, our South East Industrial & Logistics team transacted more than 3.1m sq ft of industrial space in 2012 – bucking the general market trend and keeping well ahead of our competition across the region.”
