Penn CommercialSince its launch 12 years ago, Penn Commercial has grown to become one of the most respected commercial property agents in the east of England.

The team of six, which is based in Fox's Marina, offers a wide ranging and award winning service to clients in a variety of sectors.

The team is made up of negotiators, property managers and administrators and supported by consultants providing additional specialist services.

Managing director, Vanessa Penn, said: "One of our key strengths is that we have a finger on the pulse of what is going on locally. We know where the demand is and how to market property proactively and effectively.

“It’s led to us having dozens of clients, many of whom have been loyal to us from the outset, while others have come to us through personal recommendation.”

Penn Commercial provides its clients with an all encompassing service, one that includes rent reviews, valuations, surveys and property management for all market sectors.

Vanessa says that the growth of Felixstowe, already the largest container port in the UK and one of the largest in Europe, creates huge demand for all kinds of warehousing, logistics and industrial sites, as well as offices and premises for support services.

There’s a need for everything from 1,000 sq ft starter units, right through to huge 100,000 sq ft premises for warehousing and fulfillment operations.

But in the last few months Penn Commercial has also been involved in a number of high profile developments across the region including retail, office, investment, redevelopment, land sale and more.

On the investment front, Penn Commercial was instrumental in the sale of a very substantial property to an investor: 26-32 Carr Street in Ipswich, a large retail unit with associated office accommodation

Significant interest is also being generated by the team in The Maltings in Ipswich, a 19th century former maltings which is being converted by Pertwee Estates into stunning Grade A offices.

On Woodbridge’s waterfront, Penn Commercial has successfully let a range of commercial properties in the newly redeveloped Whisstocks and Nunns Mill sites.

Elsewhere in Suffolk, a site has been sold by Penn Commercial in Beccles for a 30,000 sq ft supermarket.

Successes and projects are not just local… the company has also been involved in projects on behalf of clients across East Anglia.

In recent years property management has become a major part of the business.

Vanessa explained: “Maintaining buildings and sites, taking care of concerns and dealing with problems promptly and efficiently is key to the success of any commercial property letting.

“And we are very active in the area of negotiating leases, arranging rent reviews and generally looking after the interests of both landlord and tenant,” she added.
