Case Study: Potter Learoyd Commercial

Set up in July 2011, Potter Learoyd are a commercial property agency helping those who own or develop commercial space find end users and those who use commercial space find more or less of it.

Having knowledge of the local property market helped Potter Learoyd choose the Corby Enterprise Centre as the base for their first office.  The Centre provides Potter Learoyd with the perfect flexible and professional office space that projects the ideal image for a local commercial property agency.

The on site business advice was one of the key attractions to Potter Learoyd. Marcus Learoyd, Director of Potter Learoyd commented:

“The key benefit for us is having a free and reliable business advice resource in house and freely available. Whether our need is a formal meeting to discuss and review an idea or strategy or whether it’s a quick ‘what do you think of this idea’ over the coffee machine, it is always beneficial to get a second opinion challenging our thinking and to suggest other options to us that we might not have thought about.”

As a new start business Potter Learoyd also benefited from the Northampton Enterprise Partnership’s Soft Landing Scheme.  The scheme is designed to support new businesses seeking their first office or to attract new businesses into Northamptonshire.  The scheme provides free rent for up to 3 months and then a further 3 months at half price.
