15/10/2018

Commercial property consultants VSL & Partners has been recognised once again by The Estates Gazette online service - EGi - in its annual competition for the country’s Most Active Agent. 

Leading property publication, Estates Gazette Interactive (EGi) named VSL & Partners Oxfordshire’s best performing commercial property agency and awarded the firm Most Active Agent and Dealmaker of the Year in its 2018 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.

Once again, it was VSL’s dominance in the office and industrial markets, which helped it secure the Most Active Agent title for another year.  Across Oxfordshire, VSL completed deals in the industrial, office, retail, land and investment sectors involving 106 deals from June 2017 to July 2018 for its clients. 

Duncan May, Associate Director at VSL & Partners said: “We are delighted to have won both ‘Most Active Agent’ and ‘Most Active Deal Maker’ awards for Oxfordshire and it’s great to see our results receive such prestigious external recognition.  VSL has won these awards nine times in the last ten years which underlines our continued strength and detailed knowledge in the Oxfordshire Market.

“The Oxfordshire commercial property market has experienced record levels of transactions in both the office and industrial market totaling over 1.6 million sq ft - the highest level for over ten years. 2018 has seen a slowdown in take up but we still anticipate levels to exceed the five-year average. Despite the slowdown we have seen rental growth across the county, particularly in Oxford City Centre where we have recently achieved £32.50 per sq ft.”
