A PROPERTY consultancy has reported its best ever year.

Vail Williams, which has an office in Bournemouth, increased its revenues to £18.3million for 2022-23, up five per cent from the previous year.

Growth continued in line with its current three-year business plan, the company said, and the year included the highest grossing single quarter since 1988, when the firm was founded.

The business said that agency work, planning, property asset management, building consultancy, a growing residential presence, energy and environmental sector work and an internal reorganisation were key to its success.

Managing partner Matthew Samuel-Camps said: “What is absolutely clear is that once again we have had our best-ever year as we continued to increase our fee income and outperform previous years.

“We have seen an excellent collegiate performance. We increased our team numbers, productivity improved, we did a lot more multi-disciplinary work and we continued to serve high-quality clients across a range of sectors. We continued to advance our expertise, our client base and the type of work undertaken.

“The agency team continued its strong performance from the previous year, our planners made significant inroads and grew our offering, while the Building Consultancy and restructured Property Asset Management teams pushed ahead on all fronts.

“Our business plan is one where we are seeking to continue to grow and exploit opportunities to increase our service lines, develop new areas of expertise and look at appropriate geographic expansion to enhance our existing footprint.

“However, we could do none of this without our exceptional and valued clients who trust us to act on their behalf across a huge range of property matters and whose continued support drives us forward to grow the business, uphold our high standards and deliver ever better levels of customer service.”

The firm opened its Bournemouth office in 2021, following a merger with Dorset-based Cowling and West in March of that year.

The office became firmly bedded in through this financial year and continued to make a significant contribution, the business said.
