Eamon Kennedy, head of commercial agency (group), said the dynamic state of the market had propelled the consultancy to the top of the table when it came to deals completed, when compared with other agencies in the area.

We’ve experienced a very dynamic office market along the M1 corridor over the past 12 months, which has led us to be at the forefront of driving transactions,” he says. “We see no sign of this abating”.

“Our expert team has worked hard to close some excellent deals in the region, securing both leading and establishing businesses good quality office space that will enable them to grow their companies, which in turn contributes to the economy of the area and attracts much-needed jobs.”

Kirkby Diamond’s sterling work has also been recognised by national property publication Estates Gazette, which has awarded it Most Active Agents in Bedfordshire award for the third year running and Dealmaker of the Year for Bedfordshire.

“These prestigious Estates Gazette awards demonstrate just how successful Kirkby Diamond has been in the past 36 months and in particular just how well the agency teams in Luton, Bedford and Milton Keynes work together to get the best results for our clients,” says Eamon.

“We are widely recognised in the industry as the leading commercial property agents in the region, where we are enjoying continued growth, and it is great to see this confirmed in the form of two more awards.”
