 CBRE edged ahead of its biggest rival, Jones Lang LaSalle, to become the capital's most prolific agent for the first time since the second quarter of 2010. The agent commanded a 20% market share in Q3, one percentage point more than JLL, letting 726,681 sq ft in 49 deals. However, JLL acted on more deals than any other agent, completing 57 transactions over the period.

 Both CBRE and JLL advised on the largest transaction of the quarter - the 247,000 sq ft letting to European Medicines Agency - meaning the pair sat comfortably above third-placed DTZ with 12% of the market. Knight Frank took fourth place, having acted on Debenhams' deal to take 145,000 sq ft at British Land's North East Quadrant, NW1 - the second-largest deal of Q3.

CBRE completed the most disposals in the City with 33 deals - one more than JLL.
