Property consultancy Vail Williams has been named the most active disposal agent based on office square footage on the South Coast.

It is the fourth year running that the firm, which has offices in Bournemouth, Portsmouth and Southampton, topped the category leader board.

Vail Williams also led on being the most active disposal agent based on the number of deals, also for the fourth consecutive year.

The deals data for 2022 was compiled by CoStar, a global leader in commercial real estate information, with the company launching the awards in 2020.

Nik Cox, a Vail Williams partner who specialises in office sales and lettings on the South Coast, said: “These CoStar awards celebrate the performance of commercial property professionals in delivering results for landlords and occupiers in an increasingly busy market as people return to offices following the pandemic work-from-home culture.

“We are once again honoured to have led the leader board for the fourth consecutive year as the most active disposal agent, based on office square footage, on the South Coast.

“It is also great to again see Vail Williams recognised in the category of most active disposal agent based on the number of deals.”

Nik added: “With the international ports of Portsmouth and Southampton in the Solent region, and the ports of Poole and Portland in Dorset, this thriving economic region is home to more than 100,000 businesses.

“Many of them have office requirements that we are well placed to advise on, thanks to our team’s collective and individual knowledge, experience and track record of success for clients.”

Based on data submitted to CoStar over 2022, Vail Williams was involved in 58% of office sales and lettings.

Last year Vail Williams also scooped a hat-trick of industry awards at the South Coast’s largest property event.

Held at The Hilton at the Ageas Bowl, Southampton, the South Coast Property Awards recognised the annual contributions of property agents, surveyors, developers, dealmakers, planners, architects, consultants and property lawyers to the success of the sector.

The awards for Vail Williams were in three categories, with five firms shortlisted for each one: industrial/logistics consultancy (by deals), offices consultancy (by deals) and offices consultancy (by square foot).
