Forty years on and John Truslove is still topping the rankings

09th Mar

Redditch commercial property agent Ben Truslove has been ranked second most successful dealmaker in the UK in the 2021 EG Radius On-Demand Rankings.

He negotiated 89 sales and lettings during the year in a top ten dominated by partners from all the UK’s leading property agencies.

He was the top industrial and commercial property agent in the West Midlands.

The agency, John Truslove, came first in Worcestershire and third in Warwickshire.

Ben, who is joint managing director of John Truslove with Ian Parker, said it was “an outstanding result”.

“To be honest, during the year we are so busy dealing with new instructions and understanding clients’ requirements to watch the ‘meter’ but it is highly rewarding to see John Truslove, founded in Redditch by my father 40 years ago, battling it out with the big boys,” he said.

Top deals of the year included the letting of 22 Aston Road, Bromsgrove, a 15,902sqft factory/warehouse to Cardinal Steels and the sale of a residential development site at Easemore Road, Redditch, to Damson Homes for £1 million.

The result follows on from and exceeds the firm’s results in 2020 when John Truslove was named Most Active Agent in Worcestershire, and joint managing director Ian Parker was named both Worcestershire Dealmaker of the Year and Warwickshire Dealmaker of the Year.

In 2021, John Truslove saw a marginal increase in deals over 2020 which, in itself, was a new record for the company at that time.

Based in Redditch but covering the West Midlands including Worcestershire, Warwickshire and Birmingham, the agency now employs 8 staff and has recently recruited James Haynes as an apprentice surveyor.
