Leicestershire surveyor scoops prestigious award

A director at commercial agents Mather Jamie is celebrating after being named the most prolific surveyor in Leicestershire and winning a prestigious industry award for the second time in three years.

Alex Reid, commercial director at Mather Jamie, has won the Estate Gazette’s Dealmaker award for the 2015/16 financial year, securing more than twice as many property deals than any other agent in the county. He first won the Dealmaker award for the 2013/2014 period.

In total, Reid secured more than 70 deals in the county, while his Loughborough-based firm was named as the second “Most Active Agents” in Leicestershire for the same period.

He said: “This award shows the high level of sales and lets we continue to achieve for our clients, and it’s a great achievement to have been named Dealmaker by Estates Gazette for the second time in the last three years.

“Research done by the Estate Gazette shows that office space take-up in Leicestershire increased by a staggering 87% last year, and it’s gratifying to know that our efforts have contributed to this considerable surge.

“It’s fantastic that Mather Jamie’s continuing success has also been recognised, particularly as the firm is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year”.

Major deals secured by Alex Reid in the last 12 months have included the sale of Loughborough’s largest warehouse – the former Morris Cranes site on North Road – to Charles Bentley & Son and the letting of listed building Chapel House to lift firm Axess 4 All.

The commercial side of Mather Jamie now actively manages 315 commercial properties and 10 business parks, and is currently marketing 41 industrial units, 35 offices and 24 retail premises.
