Commercial property specialists Bulleys has been named twice as the ‘Most Active Agent’ in the Midlands in separate awards.
The chartered surveyors, with offices in Wolverhampton, Oldbury and Telford, was declared the Most Active Agent by Number of Disposals in the Midlands Industrial list of the CoStar Agency Awards 2017.
These awards, presented on Thursday 12 October, recognise the UK’s top commercial property agencies through a detailed analysis of thousands of deals collected by CoStar over 12 months.
Then on Friday 13 October Bulleys was named as the Most Active Agent in West Midlands for 2017 by the Estates Gazette, another highly-respected industry-watcher.
The latest award for Bulleys, which has offices in Wolverhampton, Oldbury and Telford, comes after the company was named both ‘Industrial Winner’ and ‘Overall Winner’ for the West Midlands in the EGi Deals Competition for 2016, announced in March this year.
Rod Spiby, partner at Bulleys, said: “We were delighted to receive these latest awards from CoStar and Estates Gazette, which both recognise the ongoing hard work undertaken by our dedicated agency team.
“We feel the awards highlight our widely respected reputation as local and regional specialists in the field of industrial and commercial property consultancy across the Midlands.”
Giles Newman, managing director of CoStar Group Europe, said: “We would like to congratulate everyone at Bulleys for their much-deserved award in the Midlands Industrial market.”
Mr Spiby said that the Midlands market has remained “very active” in 2017, and that Bulleys had matched the year-on-year levels of deals transacted in the first nine months of last year.
Speaking at the CoStar awards ceremony at the Council House in Birmingham, he said: “We have a strong manufacturing base and skilled workforces in and around the Black Country, identified by Jaguar Land Rover’s 2m sq ft new engine plant on the i54 Business Park in South Staffordshire, for which we are the sole agents.
“This significant investment in the region creates a magnet to other developments and there are many other businesses doing well in the area, which means the market remains very strong, despite potential concerns about Brexit.”
Mr Spiby added: “From the smallest local unit to multi-million pound schemes, Bulleys provides the right blend of skills and personalities.
“Our hands-on approach – which benefits from more than 50 years’ experience – continues to prove vital when it comes to working efficiently and effectively to exceed client requirements and expectations.”
