Croftons' CRE team has a reputation for thinking differently and taking a creative, efficient and ‘no nonsense’ approach to deliver innovative and commercially lucrative deals.

Our diverse clients include investors and volume occupiers, developers and providers of property finance, housing associations and local authorities, both regionally and nationally. We have experience of supporting big clients with large property portfolios, and working on a wide range of high-value, complex and technical matters.

We don’t simply react to instructions; we go out of our way to work in partnership with clients to support their business objectives, focusing on investing time in understanding their operational requirements and advising on strategic, commercial opportunities.
