“Robert Seares has supplied rating expertise to Morgan Cole for many years and I have known him personally in my position as HR & Administration Director since 2000. I have found Robert to be extremely diligent, thorough, innovative and commercially orientated whilst undertaking all the excercises we have asked him to work on for Morgan Cole over the years.

Robert’s advice has been invaluable over time and this has not just been confined to “rates expertise” but includes a number of more general property advice scenarios in which he has outlined innovative actions. All areas have resulted in commercial benefits to Morgan Cole at a very competitive cost / benefit ratio. I was pleased to maintain Robert’s involvement on a personal level after he retired from Cluttons rather than look elsewhere.” Denis Savage, Director, Morgan Cole Solicitors

“Well done. I do not think you could have got a better result.” Tony Tanner, Director, Kemp Hall Bindery Ltd

“Robert has represented Bakers Butchers in all matters relating to rent reviews, lease negotiations and business rates for over 20 years. During this time he has worked hard to get the best deal possible for our company. In particular he helped us enormously during our darkest period when the Woolgate Centre was being built. This involved closing the shop and negotiating compensation. At this time we also had to agree a new lease involving many meetings, some in London, with high powered businesses proving he is not afraid to take on the “ big boys” . We have a good relationship and hope to continue this in the future.” Don Baker, Managing Director, Bakers Butchers Ltd

“Your help in purchasing our land was appreciated and led to a successful outcome.” Frank Davey, Managing Director, Walkplace Ltd

“I would like to thank you again for the very efficient way you have dealt with helping and advising us on achieving a rate reduction. You have achieved something in the region of a 10% reduction over each of the last 5 years anticipating a reduction for the future from 2010. We are very grateful for this as we are all aware of how difficult trading is currently.” Geoff Taylor, Partner, Central Furniture, Oxford
