New recruit Tom Strawson, capitalises on a rising market for Banks Long

wantspacegotspace.co.uk - New recruit capitalises on a rising market for Banks LongChartered Surveyor Banks Long & Co’s newest recruit is already proving his worth, having hit the ground running and clinching new deals within weeks of arriving at the busy Lincoln firm.

Within two months of joining the multi-faceted practice, Tom Strawson has secured two new property development deals. He has also tracked down and is negotiating over the acquisition of a number of key sites across the Midlands and East Anglia.

Tom is acting for a number of established national roadside and leisure clients who are keen to expand their portfolio across the North, Midlands & East Anglia regions and he is convinced that talk of a pick-up in the market is more than anecdotal.

“I agreed a deal in the South East of England for a national leisure operator, which wanted to take its name into that part of the UK, within two weeks of being instructed,  and I am subsequently negotiating upon several more. I feel this is just one example of signs that investors are feeling more positive, “said Tom.

“Certainly, since joining Banks Long & Co, I have noticed increased levels of confidence, especially from retail and leisure occupiers and my colleagues share the view that the economy has reached the bottom of the cycle.

“We are keen to continue to build and work with existing and new developers, occupiers and investors to establish new opportunities across the country.”

Tom is particularly enjoying the challenge of working alongside Managing Director Tim Bradford with a number of new and existing large scale developments, investment and acquisition-led instructions whereby he will continue to strengthen and build his experience and the excellent reputation that he has already established within the profession.

Mr Bradford said: “The strength of our firm revolves around the depth of our agency and development team.  With the appointment of Tom, who is already identifying and delivering new projects, we are confident that we can be proactive in creating new developments as the market begins to recover.”
