Triple win for East Mids property agent

Matthew Hannah, managing director at Innes England

East Midlands commercial property consultancy Innes England scooped a hattrick of industry awards this month, following an abundance of successful deals across the region.

The firm was named the Most Active Agent in the East Midlands for investment property in the EG Deals Competition 2020 as well as picking up two accolades at the CoStar Awards. Innes England was recognised as the East Midland’s most active industrial agent, and as the most active office agent in Derby, acknowledging its expertise across a broad range of sectors.

Matthew Hannah, managing director at Innes England, said: “I’m very proud of the whole team for the hard work and dedication that led to these award wins. We’re delighted to be acknowledged as the Most Active Agent across so many key sectors by multiple awarding bodies.

“We have an unrivalled track record as the Most Active Agent in the EG East Midlands Deals competition and are delighted to have succeeded this time around in the investment category despite stiff competition.

Peter Doleman, Innes England’s head of agency added: “Our recently published Market Insite research data identified the industrial sector as the market’s star performer in 2020 so to have been recognised by CoStar as the most active industrial agent across the East Midland’s Region is a significant accolade. Being the only practice with offices in Derby, Leicester, and Nottingham, we have a unique ability to achieve great results across the region.

“It’s been a strong start to the year with the team completing some impressive deals, including bringing to market 24 acres of land at Clifton and selling a multi-million-pound industrial site. It’s great to see the team’s hard work rewarded by a number of prestigious industry awards.”

Nick Hosking, director in the Derby office, said: “There is a general perception that the office market struggled in 2020 as a large proportion of the working population switched to home working. However, our Market Insite research data demonstrated that the market remained relatively robust, with office take up across the East Midlands standing at around 75% of the previous year’s total. We are delighted to have been recognised as being at the forefront of this activity.”
