A chartered surveying firm has acquired more than 150,000 sq ft of new office instructions since appointing a new head of office agency head.
Simon Taylor joined Naylors Chartered Surveyors in last October from Jones Lang LaSalle where he worked as associate director in office agency for eight years prior to the closure of the Newcastle office.
The Naylors office agency team has since experienced a significant increase in the number of instructions and are marketing a wide range of new properties including; The Quadrant at Newburn Riverside, Maingate and Digital House at Team Valley, Gainsborough House and Two Collingwood Street in Newcastle city centre, Kingfisher Court in Stockton and Teleport House at Doxford Business Park, Sunderland.
Taylor said: ‘Despite the difficult market conditions of the past few years it is clear we are now seeing a real improvement in office occupier demand.
“We are experiencing a notable increase in enquiries and viewings. Naylors have the capacity to offer clients an excellent level of service and we are actively working to expand our offering of quality office instructions.”
Naylors are acting on behalf of a host of new clients including Gladman, The Northumberland Estates, Banks Group, Cushman & Wakefield Investors and HMC Group.
Bill Naylor, founder of Naylors added: “Our reputation has traditionally been embedded in industrial agency but our recent expansion of various departments including office agency enables us to be a truly multi-disciplinary firm.”
