Toby Limbrick, director, said, “It is a tough market out there, but I’m delighted to see we raised almost £2 million more this December than last year and to end the year with one of our highest for some 13 years is a great boost to the team.”

The final Acuitus commercial property auction of the year saw the sale of 59 lots for a total of £34.89m. This took the total volume of Acuitus sales in 2018 to just under £240m.

Acuitus auctioneer, Richard Auterac, commented: “This is a remarkable result for our clients, who in the main are institutions, investment funds and asset managers. It has been delivered against a political atmosphere that some pundits say hasn’t been seen since the days of Cavaliers and Roundheads!”.
