For the sixth year in succession, Barker Storey Matthews has been identified as the most active commercial property agent in the East of England by property research specialists, EGi, who have also positioned the firm as the most active agent in the region in four out of five commercial property sub-sectors.

Since 2013, Barker Storey Matthews - whose offices are in Peterborough, Cambridge, Huntingdon and Bury St Edmunds - has been awarded the title of East of England Overall Winner in the EGi Deals Competition. 

This year’s competition has also seen Barker Storey Matthews secure the number one position as the top dealing regional agent in the retail, the investment, the office and the industrial sectors – the latter two for the second successive year.

The annual competition is open to commercial agents, including national firms, who complete commercial property transactions in Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Norfolk and is assessed on the volume of deals done - covering both lettings and sales.

Commenting on Barker Storey Matthews’ repeated success in the overall competition and achieving the top slot in four out of five property sector categories, Steve Hawkins, Managing Director, said, “We operate in a region of national significance, yet it is dominated by regional property players.

“To triumph in this competiton against our regional peers and national agents and to achieve accolades year after year is gratifying. 

“We believe it’s a testament to the value we bring to clients - be they developers, investors, landlords or occupiers - in being genuinely embedded in a region where we know the forces in play in the market at any given time and in any one location.”
