“Gent Visick negotiated the acquisition of our preferred site and assisted us throughout that process. They have been proactive in the marketing of our former premises off Ripley Drive and despite the first sale falling through at the last moment were able to identify, negotiate and complete the sale to Ashleigh Signs within a 4 week period”.

“The acquisition of this property will assist us in the expansion of our business and enables us to respond effectively to the needs of both our existing and future clients. With the ever growing requirement to source more efficient means of power generation MPSE needs to be able to offer our customers innovative alternatives for power generation as well as increased level of service and shorter response time.”

Mark Pullan, Finance Director for Wren Kitchens said “We gave Gent Visick a watching brief to try and identify a unit of circa 300,000 sq ft which would be available in 12 to 18 months time and instead they found us 750,000 sq ft now. That said the location suits us really well and the size of the property will allow for future expansion as well.”

“We were delighted to have the opportunity to purchase the completed unit given the lack of stock in the area and the barrier to development from high build costs. The initial advice provided by GV was accurate and the letting achieved the predicted rental and term.”
Ian Houston – St Bride’s Managers
“Your advice has been spot on. We had a unit which would have been nigh on impossible to let and at best might have achieved £ 1.50 per sq ft. Following the refurbishment works, specified and managed by your Building Surveyors, the unit has been let at £ 5.00 per sq ft, the rent which you said would be achieved.
Despite some of the difficulties we encountered in both the refurbishment and the re-letting I always found everyone in your team very diligent and professional. They are a credit to your organisation”.
Martin Hornshaw – MSN Properties
“The advice we received from Gent Visick was spot on and we were especially pleased that this letting sets a new rental level for the estate and, through monitoring the tenant’s dilapidation works, the new lease has been drawn on a full repairing basis without reference to a Schedule of Condition. This has significantly increased the value of our interest in the Estate.”
Justin Garnett – Ogden Group
“Gent Visick were instrumental in securing our agreement with Simpson Packaging and have also given us the confidence to press ahead with the construction of the two twelve thousand sq. ft units. With construction well underway we are encouraged with the level of interest being shown in the two remaining units which reflects the advice provided to us by Gent Visick.”
Andrew Foggit – Gregory Group
“We knew that Gent Visick were a specialist Warehouse and Industrial Agency Practice and were delighted that they were able to introduce a tenant to us immediately upon appointment.”
Martin Gardener – Fastcentral
“I had no hesitation in asking Gent Visick for their advice in respect of this property when the tenant advised that they were going to vacate the unit. They were alert to the condition of the property and not only did they recommend a strategy for dealing with this but were able to respond to a requirement from a quality tenant resulting in a successful letting of the property.”
Anthony McCluskie – M & G
“We knew that finding the right building to meet Boot’s quality expectations would be difficult and Gent Visick were able to provide us with not only a range of options but were ultimately to negotiate the right deal for us on the property that we wanted.”
