Carter Jonas’ dedicated local teams of specialists provide advice to commercial property owners on all aspects of their property, offering a wide range of real estate services.

Our team operates out of seven core commercial hubs – London, Cambridge, Oxford, Bristol, Bath, Birmingham and Leeds – giving us a rare and advantageous mix of national coverage and local expertise.

Carter Jonas’s personal approach is evident in the time and effort we take to get to know a property and to understand the prevailing market conditions, as well as in the regular correspondence we have with landlords. Our success is built on the long-term approach we take to client relationships. 

When it comes to negotiating rent reviews and lease renewals, we know how to obtain the best possible terms. We apply our extensive market knowledge and resourcefulness to the negotiations, with the aim of benefitting both the landlord and tenant. 

We work hard to attract the right tenant, with a strong covenant, for every one of our clients’ properties. We take a tailored approach to the marketing of our commercial properties, searching for a suitable occupant for each one and delivering a stable income for the client. 

Every property is unique, so we can offer different options, break clauses and rent-free periods to find the right tenant for every unit. 

I was impressed by Carter Jonas’s approach, specifically the depth of clarifying answers, and effective use of face-to-face meetings and technology in order to fine-tune the case and test assumptions.
A robust financial and commercial business case was delivered that was very well received by our Executive Team, praised by our CEO and resulted in approval by our board for our preferred accommodation relocation option.” Andrew Evans, Estates and Facilities, CQC .
Always appreciate your clear thinking, responsiveness and valuable insight.

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.
