I am very happy that DataCore chose Hicks Baker to find a new building for us to grow into. Their work in identifying the right choice of building by location, size, cost, and of course parking space was excellent. Our main aim was to reduce the time and effort we would need to put into finding a new building, as well as getting expertise on unfamiliar areas, and choosing the right building for the right fit at the right price. I know it was not an easy one to find something that was functionally right for our Support operation, needing an IT Data Centre equipped area, as well as the customer facing Sales & Training requirement. But to your credit you gave me choice of locations, fitted buildings, empty buildings, new builds, old builds, refurbished, being refurbished, and helped us quickly to identify the ones that met our needs, organised well coordinated visits that minimized our time and effort, and followed up for repeat visits and negotiations on the ones we were interested in. We were kept informed at all times with good communication and updates, and the format the information was delivered back to us made it easy to see the differences between each option. Thank you James and Steve for your understanding, empathy and commitment to how we wanted to work.
Not only are you a widely recognised expert in the retail field, but you are also very helpful.

I am really pleased with the performance of the agency team at Hicks Baker – more so now that through your hard work we finally have a fully let property.

Am I glad I called Fiona! Up until 3 weeks ago, our efforts to complete a deal on a great retail site in Reading were failing miserably. After 6 months of hard work and a lot of patience, we were stalled at the final part, unable to complete the deal due to the complex nature of the transaction. Everyone involved was at a loss, but I am so happy to say that due to Fiona’s involvement at the last stage , we are now a happy tenant and have started our re-fit. All I can say is thank you Fiona, you saved the day and have, through your innovative thinking, got us the deal we so desperately wanted. Your involvement was the turning point and was 100% the key to getting this done.
