Andrew has over 20 years commercial property experience.
Andrew’s Commercial Property specialism including:
Cases Andrew deals with on a daily basis include:
I think it is important to take an interest in not only the client but the clients business. I enjoy site visits and meeting clients at their own premises, I believe most clients appreciate this.
As I undertake more transactions for clients it becomes easier as the more work you do the more you understand the clients needs.
I enjoy meeting clients and contacts in a non-work environment, I think this helps build relationships with both clients and intermediaries. Occasionally it is nice to enter a golf competition with a client and play a competitive round as a team. I am a member at RuddingPark but also enjoy the variety of playing other courses.
Time does not usually allow site visits in every transaction, however if the property is local I do try and arrange a site visit at some point during the transaction as there is usually a benefit in doing so. I have dealt with property transactions from Newcastle to Plymouth, and most points in between!
I don’t really have a preference as I enjoy doing a variety of different types of work. I think it is helpful not to do one type of work as dealing with a variety keeps you more open minded and flexible.
