Shepherd Commercial’s Q1 Round Up

A round up of the on goings at Shepherd Commercial in Q1

Starting off

After a stellar end to 2021, we entered 2022 with plenty of opportunity and enthusiasm. The start of January seen our staff return to our offices after the Christmas break and our clients prepped for the year ahead. After placing down the starting blocks of some monumental changes within the Shepherd space in November and December, we was in a position to begin the change, with our team moving from in house property management UI’s to Cloud based software’s and multi-application property management strategies.
This change to a more advanced, pro-active, commercial managing solution has propelled our services and improved efficiency across the board. Further developing on our approach to delivering the best in class commercial property management in the entirety of the Midlands.
In the first 2 weeks of Q1 2022, whilst shifting to our new system, we was out on the road in the West Midlands completing on some great commercial premises including the sale of some truly great assets. Plenty of leasehold opportunities was snapped up in the first few weeks as people came back from Christmas break ready to start the year.


In February we began to feel the effect of a resurging office leasehold market and significant amounts of our office letting opportunities was going under offer. Our portfolio had plenty of stock available but was struggling to meet the huge demand the office market was commanding.
We noticed a trend for high quality office space and discussed strategies with our network to achieve quality tenants through improving their office space. February also seen us complete on plenty of retail opportunities in a move that showed the resilience of the high street despite worry around its come back from the pandemic.

The last month

Over the last 4-6 weeks, as this is written in April, we’ve again been meeting the demand for office lettings yet actively seek industrial and any freehold opportunities. Our network of clients are keen to acquire both leasehold and freehold industrial opportunities and any freehold is swiftly met with great response. We’re trying to supplement this demand with stock but so much our marketed properties are receiving huge levels of interest. The market going into Q2 is strong and buoyant.
We also, spread our reach to Estates Gazette Property Link to further market all our properties to the public and create another avenue for clientele to locate our opportunities. On top of this our newsletter which you can view in the Homepage of our site has excelled and many of our network actively use that and our Linkedin pages to find out the latest with Shepherd.

Going into Q2

Heading into the second quarter of 2022, we’re looking to capitalise on the success and momentum of the first quarter and are all over the Midlands facilitating the sales and leases of commercial assets. There are some sectors where our stock is shorter than demand, especially in the industrial region and we are actively seeking any landlords to give us a call to discuss options.
Looking ahead, we’re digitalising and adjusting into combining our traditionalist professional service with digital solutions to deliver a world class commercial property service.
