“The team at Carr & Priddle do exactly what they say on the tin, find you a tenant, keep you informed and all for a fair price!”

Barry Carden, Managing Partner, Cardens Accountants.

“The team at Carr & Priddle have acted for us in a variety of capacities over the years including Agency, Valuation & Rent Reviews & have always provided a first class service.”

Pietro Addis

“Carr & Priddle, probably the most knowledgeable and the most successful property firm in the South Coast. They have been invaluable to us and without their support and expertise we would not have been able to grow”

ME Consortium

“Over a number of years trading in the commercial property market we have dealt with Carr & Priddle on both acquisition and sale of investment and vacant commercial premises. The staff have always provided a professional and dedicated service which is underpinned by their extensive knowledge of the Brighton & Hove property market”

Kevin Redmond, Danworth Holdings

“Finding the perfect spot to grow our business from was a tough challenge, until we were lucky enough to meet the team from Carr & Priddle. We had been looking for over a year without success for the perfect building to house our growing agency. Within 5 weeks of engaging them we had found and secured our dream property, a Freehold commercial building in the centre of Brighton with space on the ground floor for a public art gallery. Without Carr & Priddle's expert help via their property finding service we would surely have been looking for a lot longer. They helped us throughout the whole process, including negotiation and we could not be happier with the service and care they showed us”

Mike Hollingbery, BOZBOZ

“I have worked with Carr & Priddle since our company began, their bespoke service always shines, and they have exceeded expectations on every one of our projects. They are the first I recommend as all round commercial property professionals.”

Mark Woolley, Founder & CEO - Electric Salons

“Simon acts for us in finding and acquiring restaurant premises and providing consultancy advice in a personal but at the same time very professional, knowledgeable and enthusiastic manner”

Ramin Mostowfi, Director, Warmhaven Limited
