Three career highlights:
Over a career spanning nearly 30 years involving all forms of property from a nuclear bunker through to the vast majority of the County’s main business schemes, it is difficult to choose just three highlights; the following are certainly are worthy of note:

Letting acquisition, for SkyCaddie, at Haddenham: 
I have chosen this as we were presented with a challenging brief by our client but I was able to use my market knowledge to unearth an off market opportunity that we subsequently acquired on very favourable terms.

Sale of Foxcombe Hall, Oxford: It is not often you get to market a University Campus and, as such, our disposal of the former Open University Campus at Boars Hill has been a highlight, working alongside our residential team on this high profile instruction.

Letting Instruction, Silverstone Park: I am currently leading this letting instruction on behalf of MEPC, where we have been responsible for over 200,000 sq ft of lettings in the past 12 months and I enjoy helping guide the park’s future development form, alongside the wider team.

Acting on behalf of CBRE GI, Carter Jonas were jointly instructed to market and secure tenants for Units 4 and 5, Launton Business Centre, Bicester. Located on a well-established industrial estate in the heart of the town, Units 4 and 5 offered two rarely available well-proportioned units to the market.

The two units form part of a larger terrace and extend to approximately 13,213 and 12,157 sq ft respectively.

Carter Jonas were able to swiftly secure two tenants for the units totaling 25,370 sq ft., one tenant being trade and the other a charity, both using the premises for storage.

Carter Jonas was able to achieve the quoting rent of £6.50 which demonstrated an improvement in rental tone for the area, given a limited supply.

Carter Jonas provided marketing and disposal advice to CBRE GI, working closely with their joint agents to secure a positive and successful outcome for all parties concerned.
