Aitchison Raffety, a leading practice of chartered surveyors and town planners, is pleased to announce that Matthew Bowen, Director in the company’s Commercial Agency team, has been awarded the Dealmaker Award for Hertfordshire 2019 by leading property magazine, Estates Gazette.

Published by Estates Gazette this weekend, Matthew has reached the number one spot for the fifth consecutive year as a result of managing even higher volumes of transactions in Hertfordshire than any other commercial property agent.

Matt commented “It is a testament to the popularity of Hertfordshire as a location for all businesses that despite the Brexit ‘effect’, transaction numbers, rents and sale prices have remained steady if not increasing for some property types/locations. Stock levels are still at a historically low level, however, we are now starting to see some new commercial developments coming on line. Due to our market presence and reputation we are dealing with a number of these new projects and look forward to the remainder of 2019”.

Aitchison Raffety provides a full range of commercial property services with offices in London, Birmingham, Manchester and the counties of Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Middlesex, Oxfordshire and Northamptonshire.
