About Us

+ Overview

Formerly known as Shortland Horne Commercial & Professional, the practice was re-named Shortland Penn + Moore during 2011 and a new property brand was born. We are fiercely proud of our brand, which represents everything that we stand for. In line with this, we have developed our core values and core purpose, noted above, to which we abide by faithfully. We honestly believe that we offer an unrivalled service for our clients through our systems and practices.

Although our core business areas are commercial agency, investment agency and valuation/professional work, we also offer partner services to our clients including to name but a few: funding sources, rates mitigation, fit-outs, Energy Performance Certificates, building surveying and design and marketing.

Our team is led by David Shortland, Jonathan Moore and David Allen, each with many years of experience within the Midlands’ commercial property market and all qualified Chartered Surveyors and members of the RICS. They are supported by the valuation team, Roger Stanway and Stephen Dallimore, both of whom have worked with national and international property consultancies including the RICS and the Valuation Office Agency. The team also includes James Compton who specialises in commercial agency, and is supported by Debbie du Piesanie.

Our track record speaks for itself; we handle some of the largest, most important instructions in the region. Our client list includes a number of large corporate organisations such as institutional property owners, property companies and prominent commercial and mixed-use developers in a varied client base, underlining our ability and first class understanding of our market.

Our knowledge of the local, regional and national property markets gives our clients access to proven experience in interpreting market conditions, while our ability to understand property specific factors influencing value provides our clients with a rounded service ensuring maximum returns from their property asset.

We work hard to ensure 100 per cent dedication to each instruction that we deal with, acting with enthusiasm, professionalism and integrity.

+ Testimonials

Shortland Penn + Moore have acted for Warwickshire County Council's Estates & Smallholdings on the disposal of a commercial office building, an industrial unit and a residential bungalow in 2013 and 2014.

I have always found the team at Shortland Penn + Moore to be very pleasant and professional. They were successful in achieving good offers at acceptable levels on all the properties they were instructed on within a quick timeframe.

I would recommend them for all agency instructions.

Wendy Merchant, Senior Estates Surveyor at Warwickshire County Council
Shortland Penn + Moore Ltd are one of the most pro-active commercial agencies I have dealt with in recent years. They have particularly impressed me with their knowledge of the various markets they operate in and this has enabled them to successfully deliver a number of lettings in what have been exceptionally difficult market conditions.
Andy Radford, Henry Davidson Developments
I needed the right advice and the right result. Justin McVeigh at Shortland Penn + Moore provided exactly that in the sale of my warehouse property in Coventry. I expect a high quality of service and a pro-active approach which is exactly what I got. I have no hesitation in recommending them.
Mohinder Singh, Mirage Developments Limited, London
Shortland Penn + Moore have their finger on the pulse of the sub-regional property market and act as if they are part of our company - that's the sign of a good agent.
