By Nick Batten on 19 March, 2021

Wiltshire-based property consultancy Myddelton & Major has been named in the top five of regional dealmakers in the Estates Gazette Deals Competition 2020.

The long-established firm – which has offices in Salisbury, Andover and Westbury – took fourth place in the competition for the South West region’s industrial sector. The category was won by Alder King.

Estates Gazette is the influential weekly and online magazine of the UK commercial property industry. The results were announced in the February 2021 edition of the magazine.

Myddelton & Major was also named the ‘most active agency in Wiltshire in 2020’ for the ninth year running by Estates Gazette.

The firm’s commercial agency team comprises chartered surveyors Philip Holford, Dean Speer, Simon Lee, with Gary Mead and administrator Jody Williams.

Dean, a Partner at Myddelton & Major, said, “We are delighted at our ranking and it shows we can hold our own with the major players in our industry. 

“To be recognised alongside national firms must be credited to the dedication of our team.

“Our commercial agency, professional and management activities have seen our instruction base expand from our heartland in Wiltshire to Hampshire, Dorset and Somerset. 

“We have brought to the market highly successful new developments in Amesbury, Warminster, Westbury and Frome and the industrial sector remains one of our core strengths.

“Commercial property, like all sectors, has faced major challenges over the past 12 months due to Covid-19 and our team has managed to grow the business and earn us this eminent accolade”.

Using figures compiled by in-house contributory data exchange organisation EG Radius, Estates Gazette was able to reveal the top agents by deals volumes across key sectors.

The results come in a year in which agents were forced to adopt new ways of working and occupier demand changed radically.

The firm provides advice on sales, lettings and acquisitions of both residential and commercial property across central southern England.
