Cooke & Arkwright has been named Most Active Agent in South Wales 2019 by Estates Gazette, a leading title in the commercial property industry.

The award recognises the firm’s strength in the commercial property sector in South Wales and its influence with decision makers in the property community.

It is the fourth time in recent years that Cooke & Arkwright has won an Estates Gazette award and comes less than two weeks after the firm won the Commercial Agent category at the inaugural Cardiff Property Awards.

Managing Director, Andrew Gardner said, “It is very rewarding to receive this endorsement of the expertise and abilities of our 18-strong commercial agency team. They have delivered a strong performance for the firm in 2019 through leasing, acquiring and disposing of property across the office, industrial, retail & leisure, investment and development sectors.

“Being named Most Active Agent in South Wales is a great accolade to take with us into 2020 – a milestone year in which we will celebrate Cooke & Arkwright’s 120 year anniversary.”

Mansford has expanded its investment portfolio over the last few years. Over this time Andrew West has provided us with a full rating valuation service which has involved giving a view on liabilities prior to acquisitions, as well as conducting negotiations with Valuation Officers on our UK estate. The portfolio includes a wide range of properties from shops, offices and pubs to major leisure schemes. He has been particularly successful in mitigating our liabilities to empty property rate, which has been an issue on acquisition prior to implementing our development and letting strategy. I have no hesitation in recommending Andrew's expertise in rating valuation for all property types. The profile of property within his portfolio and the successes achieved are testament to his position as an extremely accomplished rating practitioner.
