Barker Storey Matthews has once again been identified as the one of the UK’s most active regional property agents by property research specialists, EGi.

For the fifth year in succession, Barker Storey Matthews has been awarded the title of East of England Overall Winner.  For the third year in a row, it has also secured the top dealing agent slot among its peers in the region in the office and industrial sectors.

In addition, this year sees Barker Storey Matthews secure the number one position for deals in the investment sector from fourth position in last year’s competition.

EGi commented that Barker Storey Matthews has extended “ ..its position of strength..” in “..a market strongly controlled by the regional players..

The EGi Deals Competition is open to agents, including national firms, who complete commercial property transactions in Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Norfolk and it assesses the volume of deals - covering both sales and lettings - across the office, industrial, investment, retail and leisure/hotels sectors.  In the latter two sectors, Barker Storey Matthews was placed in second and fifth, respectively, in the latest competition.

Commenting on Barker Storey Matthews’ repeated success, Steve Hawkins, Managing Director, said, “With offices in Peterborough, Cambridge, Huntingdon and Suffolk, we operate in a region of national significance.

“Yet it’s also a market where regional players consistently demonstrate market leadership.  It’s a testament to how vital on the ground, sound, local knowledge is to securing transactions and the importance of enduring relationships with developers, investors, landlords and occupiers.

“It is gratifying to be judged at the top of the overall list of regional and national agencies operating in such a competitive market and in such an economically active region as the East of England.”
