Katy Davenport

I work with clients to help them achieve their goals in buying, selling, leasing and managing commercial property.  

I am involved in purchases and sales of all different types of commercial property, as well as secured lending transactions. 

I also handle commercial leasing transactions, acting for both landlords and tenants.  I assist my landlord and tenant clients in the management of their lease interests, and have experience in all types of lease management transactions. 

I have a particular interest in the retail sector. 

I have a diverse client base, ranging from large institutional investors to private individuals and all in between. I value building and sustaining strong professional relationships with my clients, so as to truly get to know them and understand their commercial property needs.
