A Word From Our Clients – Grafton Advisors

We spoke to Christopher Cope, Founding Partner at Grafton Advisors about what it’s like to work with Technics and his view on the year so far.

On the current market:

We’re not seeing a direct effect from the current uncertainty in the market but we’re taking precautions, managing risk and ensuring we’re seeking the right returns. Occupier demand is strong, which is positive, but supply is quite tight so that definitely helps. The investment market has also performed well which is down to the international market. As a nation we’re quick to underestimate the value and respect we have from the international arena, which is why a lot of investors are seeing through Brexit. We’re highly regarded as a culture and we need to be confident in this.  

On the challenges being faced:

One of the main challenges for me that the industry continues to face is the skills shortage.  

On working with Technics:

We’ve worked on several commercial and residential projects with the team at Technics. We rate them highly because unlike other surveying companies they give you short lead times. The team is efficient and quick to follow up when asked, they price sensibly too. With Technics you get a user-friendly seamless service.
