Christie & Co grows its licensed business team in their Bristol office


Specialist property adviser Christie & Co has made a new appointment to its Bristol office to strengthen its commitment to its licensed business sector in the South West market.

James Ribbons joins our licensed business team in the Bristol office with 7 years experience in the property industry, selling commercial and residential property in both the UK and Australia. James will work alongside Nicholas Calfe to capitalise on the increasing demand for brokerage services to pub and restaurant owners in the South West.

Rob Kinsman, Regional Director of the South Wales and South West Division of Christie & Co, comments: “James’ appointment comes off the back of our South West team winning the Estates Gazette’s prestigious Leisure Agent of the year award last year, for the seventh year in a row. We have seen a significant increase in buyer appetite in our leisure markets, with 2017 continuing in the same vein. Despite wider concerns surrounding Brexit, our year-to-date viewing levels are up 48% on the same period last year, illustrating how business confidence in the south west remains strong.”
