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.”

I have worked with Jeremy Symons over the past three years successfully leasing and buying property in support of my business. I continue to be very pleased with his knowledge of the market and expertise. Our relationship over this time has resulted in acquiring 20,000 sq ft at Capital Business Park in Cardiff, leasing 11,000 sq ft at Southpoint, and subsequently leasing an initial 42,000 sq ft at Parc Bedwas, followed by a succession of expansions of a further 11,000 and then 47,000 sq ft, enabling us to centralise all of our operations at Parc Bedwas in a single 100,000 sq ft facility. The acquisitions were completed at the perfect time for tenant purposes and the rent fixed throughout the term at very economical rates. A job well done.
