The commercial property specialist was also ranked third in the Leisure and Hotels category for the North East, as well as winning the Most Active National Industrial Agent award.

Bill Lynn, Director and Head of Capital Markets at LSH’s Newcastle office, commented: 

"We are delighted to have won the Most Active Investment Agent Award for the North East, and credit our success to our comprehensive knowledge of the region’s property markets and close connections with both local and national investors.”

Commenting on the prospects for the North East’s investment market in 2017, Bill added: “A total of £673m of assets were transacted in just 37 deals across the North East during 2016 - a drop of 14% from 2015. However, despite this fall in activity, demand for high quality assets remains strong, which will hopefully pave the way for a robust level of activity throughout 2017.”
