Property publication Estates Gazette Interactive (EGi) has named VSL & Partners the Most Active Agent and Dealmaker of the Year in its 2016 deals competition, recognising it as Oxfordshire’s best performing commercial property agency for the seventh time.
This is an independent survey conducted by the EGi 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 428,353 sq ft of space for its clients.
Director Richard Venables said: “We are once again delighted to have won the most active agent and the dealmaker of the year award 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.
The theme for the Oxfordshire commercial property market in 2016 is one of reducing supply in both office and industrial sectors. Despite Brexit, demand remains consistent and we continue to see rents rise as a consequence of the supply and demand mismatch. New development activity seems to be improving but is currently focused on the north and south of the county.”
