Greenslade Taylor Hunt has been named best commercial operator by respected trade publication Estates Gazette for the 12th year in a row.

The magazine reviews all commercial sale and lettings transactions across the country to select its top performers.

Greenslade Taylor Hunt was named as the most successful firm in Somerset, while Joseph Hughes MRICS was named Dealmaker of the Year for the entire South West.

Despite the challenges of the pandemic Joseph secured 52 deals in the region and retained his Dealmaker title, which he first won in 2017.

Duncan Brown FRICS said: “We are delighted to have won again. Our surveyors and support staff work very hard to provide the best possible service to our clients and hopefully these awards recognise this. The number of properties we have on the market at any one time; which tends to be more than anyone else, directs enquiries to our offices which ultimately benefits everyone involved.”

Among the successful deals completed by Joseph was the sale of a prime retail investment in the heart of Minehead.

A private investor snapped up 3-5 The Parade, Minehead, which was on the market at a guide price of £530,000.

Demand for industrial units is also strong. Smaller units less than 2,500 sq ft are particularly difficult to find – illustrated by GTH having let all six units within a new block at Courtlands Industrial Estate, Norton Fitwarren, Taunton, off plan.
