According to the judges: “Savills is an enviable machine, churning out impressive fees and profit levels. It addresses client issues, has a great culture and with a strong residential arm has firepower across the board.”

Mark Ridley, Chairman of Savills Commercial, adds: “This award is a testament to the dynamic teams and exceptional individuals across the UK that make up a powerful workforce. We are proud that at Savills we achieve great results yet retain a unique culture which attracts the best people in the industry.”

In addition to the award, this year Savills was the only UK property adviser to be voted by Estates Gazette readers as best in class across four regional categories.
