Commercial property agent Jenny Clarke has returned from the world's biggest property event, MIPIM, to an industry award recognising her work across Leicestershire.

As part of the Estates Gazette Interactive competition, Jenny, an associate director at Innes England, was named as ‘Dealmaker’ for the county, thanks to her work completing more deals than her competitors in Leicestershire over the past 12 months.

Speaking of her title, Jenny said: “2016 was a fantastic year for the team in Leicester; I am delighted this work has been recognised by the EGi’s annual competition and to have been named Dealmaker for the region.

“Leicestershire’s commercial property scene has gone from strength to strength and many of the deals I have worked on showcase this.”

Jenny, who joined Innes England in 2014, has an in-depth knowledge of Leicestershire’s commercial property market and has completed a number of significant deals for the firm.

Throughout 2016, Jenny has overseen an off-market office investment sale of Millers House in Market Harborough, and the acquisition of Boundary Court at Castle Donington for the same client. She also helped successful law firm Edward Hands Lewis relocate to City Gate House.

Alongside this, Jenny has also worked closely with the Co-operative Group to manage Stoughton Grange, a key Leicestershire rural retail, office and leisure complex – which has now been fully let thanks to her work.

Peter Doleman, director at Innes England, added: “Jenny has continued to impress both her peers and clients through her hard work, professionalism and skill. We are proud to have talented female surveyors like Jenny as part of our team and we hope she inspires the next generation.”

The news of Jenny’s title comes just weeks after Innes England was awarded the accolade of ‘Most Active Agent’ for the East Midlands in the Estates Gazette Interactive competition.
