Kennedy has won the Estates Gazette award for completing the most property transactions across the country in 2019.
He said: “Kirkby Diamond’s success is a team effort and together we continue to punch above our weight, out-performing much larger, nationwide consultancies on transactions.
“Despite a year of fluctuations in business confidence, Bedfordshire has proved to be resilient, benefitting both from its proximity to London and its growing infrastructure.
“We have seen a buoyant market within Bedfordshire across most sectors but industrial, in particular, continues to grow underpinned by good values being achieved across the board.
“There are many investors seeking opportunities even though we are in a time of crisis.
“The wheels haven’t stopped turning. Clients are seeking good quality advice based on strong market knowledge, and taking stock of their business interests.
“We have developed a reputation for providing exacting advice and support to clients and, with more businesses moving out of London to the M1 corridor, we can offer them an unrivalled depth of experience across the commercial property sector, coupled with excellent local knowledge.”
