Connect Property North East (CPNE) presented to a filled room of Tees Valley professionals at the Clive Owen Breakfast Club on 28 January. Jonathan Simpson and Andrew Wilkinson, Directors gave a snap shot of the commercial market over the last 12 months. The event marks the 1st Anniversary of Connect Property following the launch of the business by fellow Director Tim Carter.
Jonathan commented “when you look at the investment being ploughed into our region over the last 12 months alone, there really is much to be positive about.”
Tim added “our breadth and depth of instructions, clients and contacts is at the heart of our success and commercial activity in a relatively short space of time.”
Andrew summarised the mood in the market as “optimistic, with a definite resilience for new projects and ideas which will continue to shape our towns and cities” and in closing he added “CPNE recognise the underlying need for a realistic approach to unlocking new value in existing and new buildings across our region.”
The event drew a record attendance for this successful networking event, which may well have been on account of the fabulous breakfast served up by the Bannatyne Hotel staff……but we will never really know!
