05 Dec An amazing 2018 for Page Hardy Harris Team and their Clients.
2018 has been a great year for the Page Hardy Harris team, with the team producing the company’s best set of results in its 16 year history!
Between the 3 offices, Bracknell, Maidenhead and Newbury, the Page Hardy Harris team has delivered a substantial increase in turnover compared to 2017 and 2017 saw a 30% increase in turnover compared to 2016. Over 130 deals have been secured to date with total instructions at an all time high. The team has increased from 7 to 11 to cope with the amount of business.
Why such a great 2018?
Without a doubt it has been a very busy time for the Commercial property world in the Thames Valley Region. Bracknell, for example, has seen the impact of the £250m spend on the Lexicon town centre scheme now it has completed. The trading figures for new retail development exceeded all expectations over the Christmas period and it has certainly attracted new investment not only to the town but to the surrounding areas.
Other significant examples of Thames Valley 2018 activity can be seen in Maidenhead. Town centre initiatives such as The Landing, with the revised scheme to include more residential units and a new 10 storey car park, has had a positive impact in the commercial world.
But it’s not just circumstance or market forces that have delivered such a successful year for the Page Hardy Harris team. Nick Hardy, who heads up Page Hardy Harris Bracknell , says “We have had an incredible year!” The proactive approach, taken by all at PHH, led to the company being awarded (again!) EG’s 2018 ‘Most Active Agent in Berkshire’.
Nick was very clear as to the why 2018 was so successful. ”Luck? No! Hard work and a great team? Definitely! “
So what can we expect from Page Hardy Harris in 2018? Mark Harris see’s a very glowing year ahead.
“There is so much happening in the Thames Valley area. Not only are there major commercial and residential projects in the pipeline, such as The Landing’ in Maidenhead, Wokingham town centre redevelopment, and Crowthorne’s ‘Buckler’s Park’’ (to name but a few), there is a lot of exciting infrastructure on the horizon. Of course there is Cross rail, the M4 smart motorway and Heathrow Airport extension but it’s the associated ‘upgrades’ that come with these types of projects such as rail and bus stations. Just have a look at the plans for Slough and West Drayton. This all adds to the attraction of large corporates looking to move out of London. The office market also saw a rally in the latter stages of 2017 and this has rolled over into 2018″.
