We offer a high quality personal service, combining professional awareness and expertise with experience and entrepreneurial flair.

 

Our team provide a wide range of commercial property services, as outlined below:

Disposals 

Using comprehensive methods of marketing and research, including traditional and modern measures, we adopt a personal approach to ensure the fastest and most beneficial outcome for our client.

Using the most comprehensive marketing techniques available, we ensure that our client’s properties are advertised in the most effective way to reach the right types of occupiers and purchasers.

Our marketing strategies are targeted across all the major recognised internet portals, direct to likely occupiers and also to specialist commercial agent and relocation consultants ensuring that our clients’ properties are fully exposed and accessible.

Marketing we undertake is aimed principally at three target markets being: -

  • Occupiers and investors
  • Agents and relocation consultants
  • Internet web portals and commercial property marketing websites

With 25 years’ experience in the West London market, our local knowledge means that we are able to design the right strategy to optimise the chance of a fast and efficient disposal.

 

Acquisitions 

Retaining an appropriate specialist commercial property agent removes the factor of chance from your search, and replaces it with a thorough and methodical program designed to maximise the number of properties you can choose from.

Being based in West London, Vokins specialises in the local commercial property market and has strong established expertise in commercial property acquisition projects. 

Utilising Vokins as your retained acquisition agent, we provide: -

  • Extensive knowledge of commercial property and leasing issues, to include confidential properties that are not known in the market through long-standing business relationships with major London agents.
  • Access to the main property databases used exclusively by commercial property agents, containing thousands of records, updated on a daily basis with newly available properties.
  • Access to an agents-only mailing and emailing network. This enables us to forward details of your requirement to all relevant commercial agents. This can identify opportunities not generally advertised in the market place, or not yet being marketed.
