Leading property publication, Estates Gazette Interactive (EGi) awarded VSL & Partners, Most Active Agent and Dealmaker of the Year in its 2017 deals competition.
The EGi deals competition is an independent survey conducted by their research team, which covers commercial property transactions across all property types including industrial, office, retail and leisure. It is designed to establish the agents completing the largest volume of deals throughout the year.
Across Oxfordshire, VSL completed deals in the industrial, office, retail, land and investment sectors involving 767,000 sq ft of space from June 2016 to July 2017 for its clients.
Tom Barton, director of VSL says: “We are once again delighted to have won the most active agent and the dealmaker of the year awards for Oxfordshire. In a market that is dominated by national agents, winning this award is a reflection of our detailed local knowledge and the strength of our agency team, which remains the largest in Oxfordshire.
Oxfordshire is experiencing an exciting growth period in the technology market at the moment. This is being driven by the emergence of a secure and substantial funding base for the Oxford University spin-out companies which is driving demand for city centre offices and ring road industrial units. As a result, rents and lettings are moving forwards apace which has already led to take-up in 2017 (as at July) surpassing 2016 levels. VSL has been heavily involved in the transactions during this period with representation in and around 40% of deals.”
