Cooke & Arkwright was named Commercial Agent of the Year at the inaugural Cardiff Property Awards, held at the Exchange Hotel in Cardiff on Friday 8th November 2019.

The awards celebrate the best of the Cardiff property sector, from residential to commercial, lettings and new builds.

The judges said, “Cooke & Arkwright is steeped in Cardiff’s commercial property, with impressive detailed knowledge. 2019 highlights include advising on the Plasdŵr development and being appointed on the former HMRC campus.”

Ben Bolton, Director of Business Space and Robert Evans, Associate Director with Development Land collected the award trophy and a bottle of champagne.

Ben commented, “It’s an enormous pleasure to receive the very first Commercial Agent award at the inaugural Cardiff Property Awards.

“This is the culmination of a very successful year in which we advised on some of the most notable and complex deals in Cardiff.

“It also recognises the hard work and professionalism of our 60 staff headquartered in Cardiff, including our 18-strong agency team. They have provided expert advice to high profile clients on leasing, acquiring and disposing of retail, leisure, office, industrial, investment and development property and helped shape the city throughout the year.”

The disposal of 120,000 square feet on the Heads of the Valleys Industrial Estate was a particularly satisfying task. The building had been rebuilt following fire damage, and Jeremy Symons and his team were successful in identifying a nearby purchaser looking to expand. The sale price, at £4,000,000, represented a record sale price for a property of this nature in the area, and with great tenacity and endeavour was completed in a timely fashion. An excellent result.
