» Paul Collins
Managing Director

Paul Collins began his commercial property career in 1979 with Global Surveyors and Property Consultants, Jones Lang LaSalle.

In 1983, the agency practice was formed and commenced business under the style of Collins Velleman. The company grew swiftly, establishing a broad and loyal client base. In 1991 the practice was rebranded as Collins Commercial.

Since 1991, Paul Collins and the team have successfully built up a multidisciplined practice and are focussed on providing clients with an entrepreneurial, personal and dedicated service.


We are proud to include both small and multi-national organisations within our client portfolio, as no project is too small or too large. This is the cornerstone of the principles upon which the practice was formed in 1983.

We have grown organically and strategically with our clients, this has allowed us to transcend markets throughout the United Kingdom and Northern Europe.

Collins Commercial represent clients seeking commercial premises throughout the UK and Northern Europe.
We acquire commercial property on behalf of a variety of long-standing and new clients, advising on the benefits of relocating. This may mean expansion or contraction to premises that will suit the budget, location and efficiencies of the client company concerned.

The practice advises on the disposal of commercial property for clients in Central London and throughout the UK including the Republic of Ireland.

We are client focused, our guiding principle being the determination to provide sound and proven commercial advice and enthusiasm, whatever the project, to achieve the best results. We specialise in areas of conflict, acting as independent advisers, as too often International Corporate Real Estate advisers with Global mandates find themselves conflicted, representing both the landlord and the tenant

The key to the disposal of property is:

  • A realistic marketing strategy
  • Exploring added value opportunities.
  • Assessing and advising clients of changing market conditions.
  • A commitment to implementing what has been recommended and agreed and producing results.

We deal with all aspects of the project, ensuring our clients maximise the financial and commercial benefits that can only be achieved by appointing experienced and proven advisers.

  • Personal and dedicated “boutique” management, through an experienced professional team.
