Why choose NEC?

North East Commercial was set up in 2008 by an experienced group of commercial property and business transfer specialists who all worked at Eblett Ellison.

Director Richard Finney oversees the commercial property and business sales together with Catherine Owens and Jennifer Jukes with an admin team, led by Joy Ferguson The team have a combined experience of over 75 years in all aspects of commercial property matters.

From the very beginning, the Company adopted an ethos which put customer service at the heart of everything it did and, because of this, the team is always happy to discuss any individual requirement that a client may have.

Our team are able to react quickly to any enquiry, viewing request or offer - and then work together with each client to find the best solution for their needs. Right from the outset we are keen to develop a positive relationship and prefer to talk through any issues. That’s because we firmly believe that this is the most effective way to get results in our industry.

This personal approach also means that our clients have the reassurance of knowing that we’re always on hand - between 9.15am and 5.15 pm, Monday to Friday. However, outside of these times, we are happy to take email enquiries.

I recently purchased a business through North East Commercial. Staff were extremely helpful and professional and throughout the process kept me updated on a regular basis and always available to answer any questions.

The Team at NEC  provided an excellent, efficient and comprehensive service. They were totally client focused and fully collaborated from onset. Their communication skills in all aspects of the process were outstanding. Their marketing/networks rapidly achieved a successful outcome - procuring a high quality tenant.

Since becoming involved with property instructions in the North East of England, and not being familiar with the locality and market, I needed pro-active, reliable and realistic property disposal advice.  From receipt of their first marketing appraisal through to being instructed on an Agency basis in respect of a number of properties, NEC have provided an excellent service. More importantly, not being located within an easy commute to the area, NEC have gone that step further, being pro-active and providing solutions on issues which would not normally fall under the Agency remit

North East Commercial handled the sale of our offices. Although it was a tight and difficult market at the time they advised us about a realistic valuation and sale details at a competitive fee.  All the personnel within their office where informative about our particular sale whenever we contacted them.  They also regularly updated us about the sale progress to a satisfactory conclusion.

I was introduced to NEC via my solicitors.  A Fantastic firm who handled a troublesome site with ease.  There remit was to secure a change of use and then let the property.  They assisted in researching the feasibility of the proposed change of use.  I highly recommend NEC and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again.

We worked with the NEC team on the lease of our new premises at Walker Terrace, Gateshead.  I found them to be pragmatic and highly efficient at all times.    It was great to push a deal through that was win-win for all concerned and NEC was integral to the success of the whole project.     We couldn't  have completed so quickly without their assistance and this was very much appreciated.  Well done!
