After nearly 20 years of success and great fun we realised that to meet the challenges and opportunities of rapidly changing markets we need more resource and a greater spread of services. As a result, VSL has become the new Oxford office of CBRE. 

We have grown the business substantially in the last few years and look at this as the next stage in our evolution. CBRE is a world leading business that will help us continue to grow across multiple sectors, including the fast-moving tech sector, the Oxford/Cambridge Arc, and the industrial sector.

VSL and our clients are very much a family and a key part of our discussions with CBRE has been our shared core values and desire to maintain our strong client relationships and personal touch.  Our amazing team will remain unchanged, but will no doubt grow in the coming years and we will continue to reside in Kidlington.

Tom Barton, Director, VSL commented: “CBRE is a world-class real estate advisor and we are truly excited about the opportunities to join forces with them. We look forward to working collaboratively with CBRE to serve clients and grow our business in CaMKOx and beyond.”

Richard Venables, Director, VSL added: “Our team’s detailed market knowledge, combined with CBRE’s national and international resources, will allow us to offer an even more extensive service to our established client base and new customers.”

Ciaran Bird, Divisional President, CBRE stated: “The acquisition of VSL is part of our strategy to grow our capabilities in the CaMKOx region, encompassing Oxford. This is a highly significant market, centered in one of the fastest-growing economies in the UK, that is seeing increased demand from tech and life sciences occupiers, as well as significant real estate development opportunities”
