About us

Founded in 2002, as a totally independent company, Swoffers Commercial is the only Guernsey based commercial property consultancy that offers pan-Channel Island expertise through our affiliation with BNP Paribas Real Estate in Jersey.

Fully RICS regulated, we are able to call on the expertise of our qualified Chartered Surveyors, valuers and property consultants to realise the full potential of any commercial property placed with us.

One of the reasons behind our success is our ability to assimilate and understand the needs of our clients, create solutions that meet their objectives and add real value.
