Knight Frank strengthens Bristol Property Asset Management division

Commercial property consultant Knight Frank has expanded its Property Asset Management department in Bristol to meet growing demand in the South West.

Jo Crofts, formerly an associate in the office agency, has joined the PAM team which manages key industrial, office and retail buildings from Swindon to Taunton and all around Bristol on behalf of landlords.

David ‘Dai’ Williams, who heads the PAM department in Bristol, said: “As the impact of the recession begins to ease there is a growing demand for skilled professional management of commercial property in the region. This expansion of our team will enable us to satisfy this increased requirement.”

Knight Frank’s Property Asset Management department provides a range of management services for landlords, including managing rents and arrears, service charges, facilities management and tenant liaison. Knight Frank has invested heavily in specialist OpenView computer systems to enable commercial property owners to see all aspects of their buildings’ property and financial performance at the click of a button.

Nationally, Knight Frank’s property asset management services team manages over 42m sq ft of commercial property worth over £8 billion.
