Carter Towler

Carter Towler is one of the largest independent firms of property consultants in the North and acknowledged as one of the most commercially active.

Offering all the major disciplines, from commercial, industrial, retail and investment agency through to professional services and property management, the multi award-winning company is highly regarded for its transactional success and breadth of experience.

Awarded the prestigious EGi Deal Winner Award for North and West Yorkshire for the past seven years from 2008, it has also previously been voted best industrial agency team at the Yorkshire Property Awards.

The company has been involved with over one third of all office agency deals in Leeds in the past five years, rising to 41% in 2013.

As well as impressive agency credentials, Carter Towler has one of the largest property management teams in the region and represents a range of national and regional clients, as well as private individuals, with representation in just about every town and city in the country.

Innovative thinking, depth of structure and cross-departmental fertilisation are often at the heart of this success, combined with an exceptionally experienced, hands-on executive team, which includes, among others, one of the best arbitrators in the country.

The company is represented on a variety of industry bodies ranging from national RICS roles, including lead author status, to regional steering groups for Leeds City Council.

Carter Towler was created by the merger of two of Leeds’ oldest property companies, Carter & Co with Towlers Property Consultants, in 2008.

It occupies a unique position in Yorkshire, combining the experience, standards and depth of the large multi-national names with the expertise and hands-on approach of smaller, specialist firms.

The firm has consistently grown over the past six years and has not only managed to retain all staff during the recession, but actually recruited during this time. With staff numbers currently standing at around 35, many have been with the company throughout the majority of their career, often over 20 years.

Clients consistently cite the hands-on involvement of an experienced team of directors and senior surveyors, together with the consistency and continuity of the supporting team, as some of the key reasons they retain the company.
