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.”

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.
