London-based real estate advisor Copping Joyce saw a 31% increase in turnover during 2021 as the post-pandemic recovery gathered pace within London and the M25.

A multi-disciplinary practice, Copping Joyce delivers a range of services including valuations, investment and development acquisitions and disposals, commercial and residential agency, insolvency services, expert witness and building surveying.

The firm has a well-established reputation in several specialist sectors, including social housing, public sector and government and is a supplier to the Crown Commercial Panel.

To support its growth the business also boosted its team by a further four property experts, bringing its total headcount to 21, and is currently recruiting two more chartered surveyors.

David Foskett, Senior Director at Copping Joyce, said: “2020 was an unprecedented year for the real estate industry but when the market began to pick up again in early 2021 we were able to draw on the reputation and network we have built within London and the M25.

“We have seen particularly strong growth in social housing as providers ramp up their development strategies in response to the housing crisis and to draw on the increasing influx of institutional investment. We expect to see a continued uptick in our social housing work during the coming year, particularly around funding and unique financing models.

“We also anticipate an increase in public sector and government work – many departments are reviewing their space or consolidating portfolios following the pandemic and the move toward flexible working, which will continue throughout the next twelve months and beyond.”
