Local property knowledge is at the very heart of Vickery Holman’s ethos, but through Property Agents Independent (PAI), we can also provide our clients with in-depth national expertise.

PAI is an informal network of 27 like-minded property consultancies that covers the UK and Northern Ireland. Its members provide high-quality advice with vested interests within their local markets. Vickery Holman provide the PAI’s South West coverage.

PAI’s member firms have a combined 58 offices, and manage more than 15 million sq ft of space for their clients. There are 3,000 properties on the market across the PAI network at any one time. PAI’s website links all its member firms, enabling them to provide their services nationally. Go to for more details.

Vickery Holman’s membership as part of the PAI network has led to some exciting referral work with other member firms. Such connections give us an advantage. It means that if one of our clients has a property issue requiring advice a little further afield than the South West, they can quickly be connected to a suitable local firm with the same passion and expertise.

These established relationships have led to connections and subsequent UK-wide instructions. Work from other PAI members is also reciprocated: if a client has a variety of properties, the best advice is often provided by the firm with the most appropriate marketplace know-how. For example, we can provide clients that have a portfolio of properties across a range of locations with services such as:
• Acquisition, sale or letting of premises
• Portfolio valuations
• Business rates savings.

Our PAI relationship means that we can guide clients by assisting with property opportunities that may reach beyond the normal geographical scope of a local firm, while retaining the personal relationship. If you believe that you may be able to take advantage of our connections, please feel free to talk to your local commercial agency team for more information and find out how we can help.
