Investments

Staunton Whiteman is an investment agency practice specialising in the Out of Town Retail and Leisure sectors.

We advise upon all aspects of commercial property investment including; acquisitions, disposals and development funding. We also provide clients with investment advice regarding ongoing asset management of their property holdings and how best to enhance value.

We provide expert, honest advice enabling us to successfully deliver transactions on behalf of our clients.

Many of our most successful transactions have been in respect of developments. We have negotiated complex conditional funding agreements in order to secure prime properties ‘off market’, before their existence has become commonly known.

Likewise we have arranged funding packages for developers at a very early stage in the development cycle, in order to provide our clients with certainty and to protect them from adverse market movement.
