Commercial Property Agency Services

Disposal Services

Our approach is common sense led using both traditional and high tech resources. Campaigns are necessarily tailored to each individual property but usually include:-

  • Reporting - We provide initial advice on the property including advice on the lease (if the property is currently under lease), market terms, refurbishment works, business rates minimisation and marketing initiatives. 
  • Mailing campaigns -. We mail all active enquiries on our database and local and regional occupiers.  We hold detailed lists of occupiers which we have compiled with upcoming lease breaks and lease expiries.
  • Web and traditional marketing techniques - we now receive over 70% of our enquiries via our website.  We try hard to optimise our site to ensure maximum coverage in the local market. We advertise on EG Propertylink, Zoopla and our property data is accessible to UK agents on CoStar and EGi.
  • Advertising - We take key pages in local publications such as B4 magazine and The Oxford Times In Business Magazine which have wide readership in the local market.  Unfortunately due to the 2020 Pandemic our lovely local publications have dwindled but are alive in an online format.  We fully participate digitally with online publications such as UK Property Forum, B4, Thames Tap and get good press coverage.
  • Digital marketing - we engage on social media via Twitter and LinkedIn be sure to follow and say hello on our platforms.
  • Board presence – You may have seen our recognisable ‘purple boards’ around the County. We market key prominent commercial sites in the Oxfordshire area and have a strong brand awareness which means we get tenant enquiries often before other commercial agents. 

We also enjoy developing creative marketing campaigns for property which is increasingly important in a very competitive marketplace. The aim of any marketing campaign is simple. To meet the aims of the client as quickly and as cost effectively as possible. Our fees are transparent and clear from the outset of any campaign and usually success related. We keep our clients fully informed during the disposal process.

We offer a comprehensive service for our clients for either commercial property disposal or acquisition. Whilst the focus of our disposal work is within the boundaries of Oxfordshire we have carried out commercial property acquisitions throughout the UK.

Acquisition Services

Obtaining the services of an acquisition agent is increasingly common in the market. Our knowledge of rental and incentive terms ensure we can obtain the best possible deal for our clients. In a leasehold situation the rental level can be extremely important, particularly where longer lease terms are required. Over a 5 or 10 year term substantial savings can be achieved. However, our service is not just limited to negotiating a deal. We are involved in advising the client from the outset on their space requirements and location needs and provide detailed property overviews to minimise client time wastage.

Our service does not end until the lease or sale has completed as often advice is required during the course of legal formalities. We believe that by using our expert knowledge of landlords, properties and the market, occupiers would generate substantial savings compared with negotiating directly with a landlord.

Recent acquisitions include:

  • Genomics plc : 9,000 sq ft at King Charles House, Oxford
  • Exscientia : 9,000 sq ft at Schrödinger Building, The Oxford Science Park
  • Oxford Biomedica : 80,000 sq ft at Oxbox. Oxford Business Park
