Cooke & Arkwright named Most Active Retail Agent 2020 in Wales
Cooke & Arkwright has been named Most Active Retail Agent in Wales, 2020 by Estates Gazette, a leading title in the commercial property industry. This is the second consecutive year in which the Retail & Leisure team has claimed the title in Wales.
This award comes despite the most challenging conditions faced by the retail and leisure sector in 2020, with the Covid pandemic, the changing profile of Britain’s high streets and the growth in online shopping.
Throughout the year, the Retail & Leisure team worked hard to secure multiple sales, lettings and acquisitions for clients including Greggs, Burger King, Principality Building Society, Columbia Threadneedle and NewRiver, as well as letting a number of units to locally based independent retailers such as Brew Monster, Love Brownies and Bradleys Coffee amongst others.
The agency also invested in new talent to help further boost its presence in the sector, with new graduate surveyor Ella Jefferies joining the team in October.
It is the fifth time in recent years that Cooke & Arkwright has won an Estates Gazette award, including the overall Most Active Agent in South Wales 2019.
