A Review of 2018 for our Commercial Department

As we move towards the end of another busy year, our Commercial Agency team are delighted that 2018 has demonstrated to be a successful year for both sales and lettings. The last quarter of the year has proved to be somewhat impressive having completed on a variety transactions including the magnificent Convent of Mercy, which was an absolute jewel of an instruction for the team to have been involved with.

Ryder & Dutton’s Commercial Agency Manager, Verity Ellidge has stated that "We have had a particularly active year in the Commercial Agency team having seen a significant increase in both sales and lettings transactions as well as overall enquiries. It is evident that we have certainly reaped the benefits of having invested in new software at the end of last year, enabling us to handle our properties to the highest degree which has allowed us to maintain outstanding levels of customer service whilst looking after our clients to the very best of our ability.
"We see no signs of significant change in market conditions despite Brexit uncertainty. Industrial assets in are in good demand and this will continue next year due to market shortage. Offices are also becoming more in demand as they have good residential conversion potential. There are more angles to the commercial marketplace which means there are more ways we can add real value to our clients."  
It has also been fantastic working alongside so many driven law firms over the course of the year which has enabled us to keep our clients regularly up to speed throughout the selling/letting process, not only that we have seen the majority of transactions being completed relatively quickly which has been incredible to see. We are very much looking forward to welcoming what we anticipate to be a very busy 2019!"
