What is a commercial estate agent?

3rd April 2020

During these troubling times, keeping a handle on your property assets seems more challenging and convoluted than ever. But whether your commercial property business has been affected by the Covid-19 outbreak directly or indirectly, having the right guidance and support is the key to coming out the other side intact. 

As a leading commercial estate agent serving clients throughout Staffordshire, Cheshire and Shropshire, we pride ourselves on delivering the highest standard of support when times are good and when times are tough. In this blog post, we reveal more about the key part commercial estate agents like us can play in the coming months and beyond.

The role of a commercial estate agent

A commercial estate agent or agency provides professional services and support to those looking to acquire or dispose of non-domestic property. Commercial property can be transacted on a leasehold or freehold basis. The role of a commercial estate agent however goes far beyond commercial property sales and lettings.

Commercial estate agents can also host property auctions to ensure better access to affordable and suitable commercial property. Our collaboration with property auction expert Auction House means we can assist our clients with the purchase and sale of commercial property via auction to ensure a solution that delivers the best possible price in a timely manner. Whether selling at auction or via the traditional route, commercial estate agents can support you at every stage. 

We also assist our clients with private valuations, commercial mortgage valuations, Capital Gains Tax valuations and building insurance assessments to guarantee the complete commercial property package. Even owners of specialist properties, such as petrol stations, public houses, restaurants and nightclubs, can obtain the help and advice they need thanks to our time served experts. Those looking to establish or realise the potential of a full-scale development - whether that be land or buildings sold for residential, commercial or industrial use, will also find the support they require courtesy of our expertise in development appraisals.

Finding a commercial estate agent

Whilst commercial estate agents are not required to be officially regulated or obtain any specific qualifications/experience to fulfil the role, finding a trusted and experienced commercial estate agent to assist you is vital. Look closely at the memberships or accreditations of the firm before appointing a commercial estate agent to ensure access to the services and support you need to thrive in your respective sector as a commercial property owner, investor or developer.

Members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) are highly qualified, experienced and regulated. We are RICS members, as well as FSQS registered, and as a result all our Chartered Surveyors and commercial estate agents are governed and regulated by a strict code of conduct. The RICS Commercial Real Estate Agency Practice Statement is a code that we adhere to ensure the highest ethical and professional standards. Combine this with our own high standards and we proudly have a legion of satisfied clients through Staffordshire, Cheshire and Shropshire. Looking at the experiences of other clients can provide an insight into the experience, reputation and integrity of a commercial estate agent.

Helping you thrive during tougher times

As we have mentioned, our commercial estate agents are here to support you during good times and bad. With the recently imposed lockdown in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, we understand that the safety and security of our clients (and their property assets) is a top priority.
