Sav­ills keeps num­ber one spot in Gazette survey

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - BUCKS ADVERTISER -

REAL es­tate ad­vi­sor Sav­ills has main­tained its po­si­tion as UK num­ber one in lead­ing trade pub­li­ca­tion Es­tates Gazette’s an­nual top agents survey, which was pub­lished last month.

With a 15.8 per cent in­crease in UK turnover from £399.1mil­lion in 2013 (based on 2012 fi­nan­cial year end) to £462.3m in 2014 (based on 2013 fi­nan­cial year end), Sav­ills held a £50m lead over its near­est com­peti­tor Jones Lang LaSalle who was ranked sec­ond. CBRE and Knight Frank took the third and fourth po­si­tions re­spec­tively.

Mark Ri­d­ley, CEO of Sav­ills UK said: “We have once again not only se­cured the top po­si­tion in the EG top agents survey, but done so with a sig­nif­i­cant mar­gin over our com­peti­tors.

“This is a su­perb re­sult and one that es­tab­lishes our lead­ing po­si­tion in the UK real es­tate mar­ket as well as the con­tin­ued hard work and com­mit­ment from our staff.

“The UK mar­ket has con­tin­ued its re­cov­ery this year with con­fi­dence mov­ing out into the tier one re­gional mar­kets and our di­ver­si­fied business model by both ge­og­ra­phy and sec­tor has placed us in a strong po­si­tion to grow as sen­ti­ment im­proves fur­ther.”

The EG top agents survey re­ported the col­lec­tive turnover for the 47 com­pa­nies in­cluded at £2.7bn, with 21 firms ex­pe­ri­enc­ing a turnover in­crease of 10 per cent or more.

In ad­di­tion to rank­ing num­ber one in the EG top agents survey, Sav­ills re­tained its first po­si­tion for the eleventh con­sec­u­tive year in Prop­erty Week’s top prop­erty ser­vices firm survey by turnover in June this year.

Sav­ills was also named as The Times Grad­u­ate Em­ployer of Choice for Prop­erty for the eighth con­sec­u­tive year in April, as well as top­ping the UK Business Su­per­brand charts in the real es­tate sec­tor for the sixth con­sec­u­tive year in Fe­bru­ary.
