About Us

Manchester has seen some of the strongest growth and development than anywhere in the North West of England, if not the whole of the UK, over the years. There’s been unrivalled demand for properties across the region as businesses look to move into, expand or start up in the area.

Finding those perfect properties, however, proved to be a bit of a challenge. With so many fantastic places to choose from, it was difficult for anyone to know where they should base their business.

Maps only provide part of the picture. Local knowledge and an understanding of what is happening in the short and long term can make all the difference.

This is where Williams Sillitoe can help.

We take a proactive approach when it comes to finding the right commercial and industrial properties for your needs. We want your business to succeed, and you’ll experience the passion we bring firsthand as we help you find the perfect location.

To do this, we want to understand you, your needs and what you want to achieve. This helps us anticipate problems and find the right solutions so they won’t slow you down.

Our team at WillSill have more than 50 years of experience across the property market in the North West and our approach is simple: provide the best advice and service to every single client to achieve great results. Get to know our team here!

It starts with great relationships

Just like every person is different, the same is true for businesses.

That means different goals and needs. There’s no ‘one size fits all’ approach. Just because you have the same number of staff as another organisation doesn’t mean you need the same type of property.

The common factor is people. We strive to be the best not only with our knowledge and experience, but in the relationships we forge with every client – both old and new.

This means we:

  • Respond to calls and emails quickly
  • React to urgent property requirements
  • Use the newest technology
  • Hire the right experts
  • Understand the market better than anyone else
  • Care what people say.

By understanding you and your needs, we’re better equipped to find you the right property.

Experts with local knowledge

Just as important as who you are is what you want to achieve, and who will benefit from your business the most.

This is why we focus on South Manchester and Cheshire. We know these areas better than anyone else because they are our places. We’ve seen them grow and develop and understand what the people are looking for. We use this knowledge to help you find not only the right property, but the right people to drive you forward.

All commercial properties, whether an office, warehouse, retail location – or anything else – should inspire your staff and your customers. It should tell them what you stand for and what you do, enforcing the feeling that you belong in that community.

In short, we’re excited to bring this local knowledge to our clients in the search for the right property and the right customers.
