Rightmove, a leading real estate site in the U.K., partnered with Search Office Space, the country’s oldest agency for renting of serviced offices (including co-working spaces). The partnership enables Rightmove to list the agency properties in its so-called commercial property channel (here).

Search Office Space offers serviced offices of all sizes, including co-working, hot-desking spaces and meeting rooms. Six hundred carefully selected office properties across London and the U.K. will be presented to Rightmove’s commercial property audience.

Rightmove has been heavily promoting its commercial property channel, which now has more than six million commercial searches every month, and grew by 30 percent in terms of enquiries from 2014 to 2015.

Commenting on the launch Richard Smith, CEO at Search Office Space, said: “Our business has the experience and passion to make this (partnership) work, and…to provide the quality of partnership that Rightmove requires. For the properties we represent, our partnership with Rightmove will enhance their profile and visibility, and give us a real competitive advantage.”

Search Office Space was founded in 1993 by CEO Richard Smith. It runs a portfolio of approximately 3,500 U.K. properties and 10,000 globally. Its service is free for customers searching for space.
