CSquared RE has announced the launch of its Bristol office agency team, bringing together a trio of highly experienced and well-known market players to create a new, independent offering in the Bristol market.

Andy Heath and Seonaid Butler join from Cushman & Wakefield. Richard Ford, previously Head of BNP Paribas Real Estate’s Bristol office and latterly operating independently as FORD RE, completes the team.

The new team is one of the most experienced in the region, bringing expertise not just from the local market but in the case of Richard and Andy, many years working in the London and South East markets.

They will be working with both Investors and Occupiers and specifically will be dealing with several active disposal instructions such as the market leading development at One Portwall Square, the major refurbishment of 10 Victoria Street as well as handling occupier mandates for the likes of ARUP and EPIC Systems.

Commenting on the new beginning Andy Heath stated: “It’s great to be part of the wider, dynamic CSquared team and we’re looking forward to growing the business at a time when Bristol and the region has huge potential. We are fortunate to have many loyal clients with whom we’re looking to build even stronger relationships.”

Richard Ford added: ‘We feel there’s a great opportunity for an independent business of scale in the market able to work with a wide cross section of clients and offering exceptional service levels. We’re going to enjoy the challenge of developing the business over the coming months and years.”

Seonaid Butler commented ‘The market is changing, and clients demands are changing. We hope to be able to respond to those changes quicker and work with clients who share our drive, enthusiasm and enjoyment of what we do!”

Allan Lloyd, Partner said: “We are delighted to finally have the team on board as we develop the business in line with our growth aspirations to become a leading regional operator. In addition, we have also recruited Ollie Hartnell to our Bath agency team as we cement our market leading position in the city. We have recruited 7 quality individuals this year as we widen our service offering across more business lines across a wider geographic base, with further expansions underway.”
