Manchester-based Edwards & Co has recruited Toby Nield from P3 Property Consultants, where he was an office agency graduate.
When Nield starts in January, the new hire will take the office team at Edwards & Co to five; he will work alongside Andrew Timms, Ed Keany, Richard Dinsdale and Nigel Hunter.
Andrew Timms, director of Edwards & Co, said: "This has been an important and strategic move for us at this significant time. We have witnessed a strong increase in activity over the last quarter with a number of significant deals crossing the line in recent weeks. It is important that we add to the team to ensure we continue the level of service our clients have come to recognise us for. Toby's mature attitude and market knowledge will complement our expertise and hands on approach.
"We have an exciting year ahead, working with both landlords and tenants across the region. Our service coupled with our excellent knowledge of the North West market enables us to respond quickly to our client's needs and has proven to be a successful formula to date."
Nield said: "I am really looking forward to starting this new role and the opportunity to get stuck into the challenges ahead and being part of this great team."
