When selling or letting your property Carter Jonas provides a professional and personalised experience from the outset.

From developing high-quality marketing reports to liaising with solicitors, we pride ourselves on delivering a high standard of service. 

As part of our marketing, we will produce a compelling set of particulars, as well as provide a knowledgeable and in-depth report of the local office market. From there, we will advertise your property on our website and on other national commercial property websites, and make direct contact with potential tenants or purchasers on our database.

We also have an experienced team which deal with the acquisition and investment of offices. We understand the importance of location to occupiers and, as such, it is our first consideration in any property search. We combine our detailed local knowledge with our national perspective to find the right location to produce the best results for your business. 

With a clear understanding of your requirements, we will analyse all options available both on and off the market. We will draw up a shortlist, coordinate viewings and inspections with you, liaise with clients and manage negotiations through to a successful completion for you.

When it comes to agreeing terms, we know the incentives that are available to occupiers. Rent-free periods, a contribution towards a fit-out, break clauses and flexibility – they are all areas that can be negotiated upon. Our professionals are skilled negotiators, fully informed of market conditions, and their sole objective is to deliver the best result for your business.

    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.
