The foundation of all successful property searches focuses on the people that promote, drive and negotiate it. Trust in ability and skill is equally important for us here at Croydon BID. Sinclair Clark possess all of those qualities while offering such an informed insight into the local market and demonstrated a clear understanding as to our needs as a business. Vanessa was involved throughout the process working honestly and diligently to close a deal that suited all parties. We could not recommend Vanessa and the team at Sinclair Clark enough – her tenacity to deliver is unrelenting.

Vanessa’s tenacity, skill in negotiation and general positive attitude was key to securing a significant letting at Renaissance in Croydon. It is fair to say that without her involvement throughout all stages of the letting and legal process, the outcome would have been much less certain. I have no hesitation in recommending Sinclair Clark.
Associate Director: UK Offices, M&G Real Estate
I first worked with Sinclair Clark when we were acquiring our current offices in Sutton. Vanessa Clark of Sinclair Clark was acting for the main leaseholders and it quickly became apparent that she had excellent communication and business skills. She acted swiftly, professionally, had effective negotiating abilities and quickly brought the deal through to completion, using her impressive 'can do' attitude to resolve the difficulties encountered. We are now in the process of acquiring property in Hillingdon and Uxbridge, both sourced by Vanessa Clark, and we are extremely pleased with the speed of delivery and the excellent terms she has negotiated. Vanessa Clark offers an outstanding personal and professional service and I would have no hesitation in recommending Sinclair Clark to all.

I would confirm Vanessa Clark was appointed by Abstract Group shortly before the purchase of the site which we developed as Renaissance, a 100,000 sq ft new office scheme in Croydon. Vanessa was instrumental throughout the entire process from liaising with the local authority to providing local intelligence via a large network of contacts and in ensuring the building was delivered fully let shortly after completion. I have no hesitation in recommending Vanessa and Sinclair Clark.

I am delighted to be able to recommend Vanessa Clark of Sinclair Clark who arranged a letting of space to us in Emerald House, Croydon.

It was a real pleasure working with Vanessa via whom we also appointed top class contractors.

ERC Equipoise appointed Vanessa Clark of Sinclair Clark to handle our office acquisition during Q2 of 2012. Whilst the list of potential offices was already well advanced to three possible contenders, Vanessa’s contribution was vital in quickly establishing the best deals on offer for these, selecting the final choice and negotiating the heads of agreement. Her encyclopaedic knowledge of office space in Croydon gave us complete confidence that we were negotiating hard and that we were making good decisions. We also found Vanessa extremely helpful in resolving difficult issues during the contract negotiations and continued to make significant gains during this process when I had expected to be on the back foot. I cannot recommend Vanessa’s services more highly.
ERC Equipoise, Managing Director
