Without doubt, FHP is the dominant agent in the Industrial/Warehouse market throughout the East Midlands and I'm proud of the fact that the strength of this domination has been mirrored by my rise through the ranks at FHP. Whilst still keeping my hand in with Office deals (both acquisitions and disposal) my time is spent mainly advising ‘big shed’ occupiers, landlords and developers, but still taking care of owner occupiers in both corporate and family-run businesses. Always changing, always needing to think on your feet and respond, the property world is no different to any other strand of business. I'm proud of my involvement in the development of any number of new Industrial and Warehouse schemes during the heady days of 2007. But looking back, I am as equally proud now of deals completed during the recession and the very tough times we all faced, when smaller scale clients say a big ‘thank you’ for finding them an occupier for their pension-fund-owned unit. Now with the market returning there is a real buzz in the sector again, design and build deals are being done, developers are talking, but as yet not acting upon, their desire to speculatively develop and I am shifting more 'big sheds' than ever. It seems for the next year or two lack of stock rather than lack of demand will be our key problem to solve.

Current Role

  • Acting for CWC Group on the development of over 1.75 million sq ft at Castlewood Business Park at Junction 28, M1 with further land still available
  • Acquisition of 100,000ft² warehouse at Codnor Gate Industrial Estate ‘off market’ on behalf of long standing clients PMW Developments
  • Sole Letting Agent of Unit A, Gateway 28, a 264,000 sq ft letting to Eurocell, providing one of the largest deals in the Country in 2009
  • Sole Agent for Wilson Bowden Developments in the letting of the first 22 units at Blenheim Park, Nottingham
  • Acquisition of 90,000 sq ft for a new Distribution Facility for National Autoparts at Alfreton
  • Advising Cornerstone on their 93,000 sq ft Glaisdale Point Warehouse and Industrial scheme investment in Nottingham
  • Please take a look at my deals done for 2022 – TG Deals Done 2022


After teenage years playing cricket, rugby and football at representative levels, as with property I now pass on that ‘experience’ coaching both junior football and cricket teams. This also enables me to spend even more time with the two real loves of my life – not Nottingham Forest or Test Match cricket, but my son and daughter (and of course my amazing wife) who’ve both been inflicted with the sports bug at early ages and already play sport at the highest standards!

As a result I now spend time balancing my three ‘jobs’ – Surveyor, football and cricket coach and finally family taxi driver with a terrific knowledge of every cricket and football ground in the East Midlands!


We would like to take this opportunity to thank Tim Gilbertson for all his hard work and dedication in closing one of the most significant UK property lettings of the year. We greatly appreciate the proactive approach adopted by Tim and look forward to working with him in the near future

Gary Conway – Quinn Group

Tim , we really welcome your efforts and your efficient manner in dealing proactively for us with lettings for this estate. Likewise being kept informed is also much appreciated. I hope our successful relationship can continue.

Howard Meaney – Liverpool Victoria

I became aware of FHP after looking for suitable property to relocate to. Tim made every effort to offer what was available, he knew what we wanted and was very straight talking, so I had every confidence he was the man for the job to sell our site here in Somercotes. Well done to FHP! Tim is now concluding our relocation purchase!

Steve Nyland – Nyland Graphics

Tim Gilbertson of FHP has done us proud here as we achieved a sale within a remarkably quick period of time at a price which suits both ourselves and the purchaser and one which will enable us to focus our attention on our Castlewood scheme which sits even closer to Junction 28 of the M1 Motorway and where we have already achieved terrific success with FHP over the last few years.

James Richards – Clowes Developments

Tim at FHP has acted on my behalf now for well over 10 years and during that time he has effectively become my Property Director from afar!  He has bought and sold investments for me, re-housed my various businesses and bought both on and off market opportunities to me, all of which have been a terrific success. His market knowledge and experience in this sector are invaluable and I cannot recommend his services highly enough I look forward to working with Tim and FHP once again in the very near future.

Gill Merritt – Merritts

This was a fantastic deal and Tim Gilbertson and FHP have performed superbly.  There is no doubt that we couldn't have done the deal without Tim and his efforts have gone above and beyond the call of duty.  We can only thank him most sincerely and would recommend his services to any potential landlord or vendor.

David Weisberg – Rammon Group

I have undertaken business with Tim for over 15 years on a number of projects across the Midlands encompassing acquisitions, lettings on multi-let industrial estates and disposals.  He has always worked efficiently and conscientiously achieving good results and keeping us informed along the way.

Charles Alcock – Director – M7 Real Estate

Our unit was vacated last Xmas time, and we continued to instruct a national agent that had been trying to assign the original lease on behalf of our former tenants. As soon as this lease had expired, we looked at the market place locally and turned to Tim at FHP as he had been recommended to us and had offices in both Nottingham and Derby. We were then delighted to secure such a big name tenant in a relatively short period of time. Tim's friendly and approachable manner, coupled with his professional skills, have produced a very favourable result for our partnership.

Robert Jones – RMJ Estates

Stainton are happy to recommend Tim having sold over 150,000ft² of units through him over a three year period. Tim quickly found us a buyer for this unit and at a very competitive price.  ”

Hugo Jackson – Stainton

I really couldn’t believe how quickly Tim sold our warehouses.  I thought it would be a really long job but it was quite the opposite and I had a telephone report virtually daily on the progress of the sales. Altogether a fantastic job was done by Tim on what could have been a very tricky process.

Mark Smithson

By utilising the skills and experience of Tim Gilbertson it has taken a considerable amount of pressure and stress out of the entire process from start to finish as well as saving time and money by negotiating enhanced terms etc.  The fact that I think it was a very smooth process with very few problems is testimony to the fact that the accusation has been handled professionally and in a timely manner.  We will use Tim Gilbertson again given the opportunity.

Paul King – Operations Manager – Topcon

It was a pleasure to deal with Tim Gilbertson at FHP on the sale, he has been superb throughout. The whole process was extremely well executed and concluded I believe to every parties satisfaction.

David Charity

Once again Tim at FHP has come up trumps, he managed last time to sell 4 warehouses at Bardon Hill in a short time frame and this time he managed to sell two warehouses in a tighter time frame still. Without his expertise the deal probably wouldn’t have completed. He is extremely reliable and always rings you back, which is a lot more than can be said for some of the competition. Well done Tim and thanks again.

Mark Smithson – Marks Electrical

Thank you to Tim Gilbertson and FHP and to his clients for facilitating our move onto the airport.  This expansion is a great move for our company and continues our trend of business expansion and progression. Tim was great to deal with throughout and I hope that I will have the opportunity to work with him again in the future.

Neville Karai – Director – Heavyweight

We were very impressed with the manner in which Tim Gilbertson of FHP has dealt with the instruction and the result achieved.

Bruce Strachan – Property Director – Pullens

Tim's advice proved extremely accurate when it came to disposing of the leasehold interest in the property.

Mark Howkins

FHP came highly recommended by a business colleague, friend of mine who has a considerable property portfolio. FHP responded within 24 hours, better still they had a client viewing arranged within days of the initial enquiry thanks to their extensive client database, and recognition as the largest private commercial property consultants in the East Midlands. I must give personal thanks to Chris for being available at all times, and not least for all his hard work getting the deal across the line. I strongly recommend FHP, don’t waste time with other agents (we did, 1 year!)

Steve Raynor – MB Nottingham

I am delighted with the outcome here, Tim Gilbertson and colleagues at FHP have done a great job and I cannot recommend them highly enough.  Not only did they meet and exceed our expectations in terms of price and timescale but I also instructed them to negotiate the surrender of the current occupier’s lease which they dealt with equally efficiently.   I look forward to working with Tim Gilbertson, Chris Proctor and colleagues again and cannot recommend FHP highly enough.

Melvin Lusty

Tim and Chris went above and beyond in their efforts to market and sell our property. They were extremely knowledgeable, helpful, attentive, honest and responsive. Having dealt with many commercial property sales before, I would say this has been one of the most professional and impressive teams I’ve worked with and I strongly recommend their services. 

Malcolm White – Granada Glazing

It has been a pleasure working with Tim and the team at FHP throughout this project. The new site at Manton Wood will enable the Hancocks Group to continue its omnichannel growth while unlocking broader operational efficiency.

David Nelson – Supply Chain Director – Hancock Cash & Carry

I have worked with Tim before on the negotiations to buy our new premises and was impressed with the speed in which we moved on that deal but the commitment to making the sale of our Belton Road site happen was exceptional.  Tim and the team are pragmatic, honest and exceedingly proactive. I’m not sure there are many agents who would have pushed a deal over the line so late on Christmas Eve.  We retain FHP as our sole agents as we take the next step to rationalise our property portfolio.

Hannah Dashper – Operations Director – Selective Marketplace Limited

It was a pleasure working with Tim and the team at FHP, who came across as honest and professional, which allowed us to move forward with pace.

Gurdev Mattu – Managing Director – Fashion UK Limited

In difficult times we are delighted to have completed the sale with a local company who will be expanding in their business into this wonderful location. Tim Gilbertson and FHP have played a fantastic role for us in bringing together a sale which suits both parties, I can’t thank Tim and his expertise enough.

David Charity

We’re delighted to get this over the line. We are expanding our Nutritional Supplement manufacturing capacity and delighted to do this within Nottingham with the creation of new jobs. We are very grateful to Chris and Tim of FHP for their support and assistance throughout the process.

Chris Smith – Chrysalis Health & Beauty Business Solutions Limited

We are delighted to have worked with Tim and the landlord to secure this fantastic space in Mansfield to continue our expansion plans. The extra space will allow us to increase our current production capacity significantly, create more jobs and expand the services we currently offer. After the last year which has been unprecedented for most of us and tough on everyone it is welcoming to have a positive milestone to focus on.

Nicola Slater – Managing Director – Foil Smart

Signing the lease on Baxter House is a pivotal moment for QTS, in terms of our planned growth and our commitment to Nottingham. The site itself is perfectly located and the property provides us with the space we need to house our equipment and our people, when the time is right for us to fully return to the office environment. Thank you to FHP for making the transition of this deal go smoothly and we look forward to making Baxter House the hub of our operations in England.

Thomas Marshall – Operations Director – QTS Limited

Baxter House received a lot of interest both from a letting angle and interest from purchasers. The QTS offer made a lot of sense with a highly established tenant looking to invest into the property long term and make the premises its Midlands HQ. We look forward to working with QTS in the coming years and once again a big thanks to Tim Gilbertson and Chris Proctor of FHP Property Consultants who sourced and negotiated this deal on our behalf.

Matthew Wrigley – Commercial Property Manager – PMW Property

Once again Tim at FHP delivered a deal which at times looked impossible. Pragmatic and to the point, I trust his judgement and market knowledge.  I cannot fault the level of commitment and support that we have had from the team at FHP over the last year which is why, with another big deal planned for 2021, we continue to work with them.

Hannah Dashper – Operations Director – Selective Marketplace Limited

FHP, along with the joint agent, John Sambrooks of Gerald Eve, were instrumental in getting this property under offer quickly after it was brought to the market. Once under offer, Tim’s expertise, knowledge and input was extremely useful in getting this deal over the line. Ultimately it was a good deal for both parties and one which my client was pleased with. Thank you to the FHP team for their assistance.

Gareth Owen – Senior Associate – Gerald Eve

Tim Gilbertson of FHP was immediately contacted to make him aware of our interest in the property.  Tim wasted no time in relaying our intent to his clients and the wheels were put in motion very quickly.  The process was challenging for both parties to get the deal over the line quickly and smoothly, but we would like to thank Tim and his clients for their efforts, especially Tim, who was instrumental throughout and played a big part in the success of the deal. The team at APF are flattered by the increasing reputation we have secured, which is now paying dividends and a just reward for our team’s hard work and efforts over the past few years to carry out our targets.  Our success would not be possible without having the right manufacturing units, so thank you again Tim and all involved in its completion.

Andrew Cooke and Paul Bradbery – Directors – Andrew Paul Furniture Limited

Tim and his team at FHP have been terrific in their help with delivery of our new premises to expand our West Midlands coverage. The move is a significant upgrade and despite a very challenging property market, Tim found a great match. The property also benefits from a full refurbishment achieving an EPC A rating
