Knight Frank is Yorkshire’s finest for second successive year

Knight Frank’s Sheffield and Leeds-based industrial team has retained its top spot in a national award for being the most active in the commercial property sector in Yorkshire in 2015.

The team completed more deals than anyone else for the second year running in the national EGi Deals competition.

The win confirms Knight Frank’s commanding presence in the region, particularly in South Yorkshire, for industrial property, according to partner Rebecca Schofield, pictured. She said: “South Yorkshire continues to be the prime location for industrial and warehouse occupiers with deals completing across Sheffield, Rotherham, Chesterfield, Barnsley, Doncaster and Worksop.

“This award is a real coup for the Yorkshire team, and to win it for the second year running is testament to the team’s hard work and coverage of the region through its presence in both Sheffield and Leeds. We pride ourselves in knowing our market, and its various sectors, inside out. This means we can respond quickly and knowledgeably to enquiries and opportunities.”

The Leeds office covers all West Yorkshire locations from Huddersfield, Brighouse and Castleford to East Riding and North Lincolnshire locations like Hull and Grimsby plus North Yorkshire and Teeside locations along the A1(M) corridor.”

Tom Lamb from the Leeds office added: “The collaboration between Sheffield and Leeds has resulted in outstanding client service. This combination delivers a more concentrated depth of knowledge across the region and working together maximises our exposure in the market place. It’s a compelling sell to our client base as they effectively get two offices for the price of one.”
