Louis Taylor features in the 2013 CoStar Agency Awards! We were delighted to find ourselves ranked within the top 5 Industrial Agents in the West Midlands Region, by reference to the number of instructions.
The story was picked up by The Staffordshire Evening Sentinel….
“AN ESTATE agency which specialises in commercial as well as residential property has been ranked among the top performers by industry analysts.
Louis Taylor’s commercial division has been ranked fourth in the West Midlands region by CoStar, an industry database which tracks more than 4,000 estate agencies, for having taken on more than 150 new instructions.
Patrick Doherty, director of the Festival Park-based office, says the results came as a welcome surprise and reflect the hard work the company has put into carving out a niche for itself in building a reputation for selling smaller industrial units.
Patrick says: “So far as I know it is the first time that Louis Taylor has featured at the top of the CoStar lists.
“This is not something over which we have any control so I was very surprised when they wrote to me saying we were so high up. CoStar takes a snap shot on a single day with all the estate agents which list their stock with them and we ended up fourth in the category for new instructions with 155 properties.”
And he says that Louis Taylor’s growing reputation for specialising in smaller industrial units which have proved popular throughout the recession has helped it pick up new business.
“I think it helps that Stoke-on-Trent has a strong industrial heritage and we have carved out a niche among business people and industrialists who know that we have a lot of units suitable for their needs and vendors come to us because they know we can get a result for them.”
