Estates Gazette said: “Knight Frank has massively upped its game in offices where it is now number one by volume and was last year recognised as disposing of the most space in both Leeds and Sheffield.”
Eamon Fox, partner and head of the team in Leeds, said: “This has been an awesome year. We are absolutely delighted to have fared so well in the EG Tables but we couldn’t have done it just by ourselves.
“We would like to say a huge thank you to all our clients, who are loyal, supportive and partner with our team to ensure our combined efforts deliver the deals which make us the most successful office agent in Leeds.
“At the heart of what we do is a desire to keep innovating with landlord and occupiers and ensure collaboration with our clients each day. We are tremendously proud of this success – and are looking to build on it in the coming months and years.”
Peter Whiteley, partner and head of the team in Sheffield, said: “We have an extremely capable team in Sheffield and pride ourselves on strong client relationships and a detailed knowledge of the market, as evidenced by the EG result. We are also proud to be an instrumental part of Sheffield’s transition as its commercial property market develops so rapidly.”
This is the second major success for the Leeds office agency team of Knight Frank in the past few months. The team, headed by Eamon Fox, swept the board at the prestigious CoStar Group awards, underling the team’s growing reputation as the most accomplished and most successful in Yorkshire.
The team won an impressive four of five awards in the CoStar league tables, including the most active agent by number of instructions and disposals, while Burberry’s move to Queen Street in Leeds, brokered by Knight Frank, won CoStar’s deal of the year.
Meanwhile Knight Frank’s Yorkshire industrial property team came second in the EG League Tables, behind Carter Towler.
