Fleurets were the overall national winners for the leisure and hotels, striking more deals than anyone else.

Simon Jackaman, divisional director for the East office said: “Estates Gazette is the UK’s most highly respected principal journal for commercial property, and it is a real honour to receive a national and regional award in this fiercely contested competition. A combination of our local knowledge, result’s oriented team and enthusiasm help us to achieve the best for our clients.

“Despite recent political and economic events, the leisure and hotel market in East Anglia has remained very robust, with good levels of demand across most sectors from owner/occupiers, investors and tenants. Over the course of the year we sold the total value of our East office sales equated to just under £10m.

“The level of transactions achieved by our agency team has increased year on year and is testament to the improving strength of the local market and our commitment to achieving the best results for our clients.
