Christie & Co retains 'most active' in the South West

Christie & Co’s South West team has won, for the eighth consecutive year, the award for the most active agents in the Leisure and Hotels category of Estates Gazette’s EGi Deals Competition. The specialist business property adviser was also named as the top-ranking sector agent in the North East and Scotland.


Christie & Co continue to dominate the Hotel & Leisure market, providing market leading advice to hotel owners for over 80 years. Rob Kinsman, South West Regional Director of Christie & Co comments, “To be awarded this ranking for eighth year is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our South West team and the results we strive to achieve for our clients. Our team brings an integrity and transparency to the business – and that’s why people continue to trust us.” 

Matthew Smith, Director of Christie & Co’s South West Hotel team added, “As highlighted in our Business Outlook 2018 report, the market faced many challenges in 2017 but for those businesses who embraced change there is still plenty of opportunities. 

“The South West market, despite these challenges, has been particularly active; we transacted 35% more hotel deals in the South West last year and the volume of offers on our clients’ business increased by 50%. We continue to see an improvement in the quality of businesses coming to the market and with interest rates remaining low, the Leisure sector provides robust returns for entrepreneurs seeking higher returns. The South West is regarded as a fantastic place to invest and we have seen a noticeable increase in foreign investment, particularly from the Asian markets.”
