Eddisons has been identified as Cambridgeshire’s most active commercial agent, according to six-monthly deals competition results published this week by property research platform EG Radius.

The firm, which employs 360 people across the UK and has regional offices in Peterborough, Cambridge, Huntingdon and Bury St Edmunds, triumphed in the half-year ranking of Cambridgeshire agents, with 736,902 sq ft of space transacted and 102 deals completed. With six times the number of deals done by second-ranked firm Bidwells, Eddisons has topped the EG rankings for eight years consecutively.

The annual deals competition is open to all commercial agents completing property transactions in Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Norfolk and is assessed on the volume of deals done for lettings and sales.

Eddisons also led the field in the ‘most active agents’ category of the awards, with six out of the top ten dealmakers in the East of England working for the firm. Matthew Hunt, Richard Jones, Julian Welch, Ben Green, Steve Mudd and Stephen Power all appeared in the top ten ranking, with each agent having completed between 19 and 12 deals in the first half of 2022.

Commenting on the agency’s ongoing success, Eddisons partner and head of agency Steve Hawkins, said: “Being in pole position in Estate Gazette’s East of England rankings really is testament to the hard work of all our team. As we continue to grow, Eddisons prides itself on being a national firm with local knowledge and expertise, gained from having people on the ground, and persistently going the extra mile for our clients.

“Clearly that has paid off and we are incredibly pleased to have our hard work on behalf of our clients recognised for the ninth year in succession.”

Last month Eddisons acquired commercial property firm Budworth Hardcastle, which employs 18 people at offices in Peterborough, Kettering and Northampton. The deal follows the firm’s acquisition of South coast-based firm Daniells Harrisons earlier this year and 2021’s acquisition of London firm HNG and Fernie Greaves in Sheffield.
