Bruton Knowles New Recruits. From L to R Ashley Pocock, Katie Caldicott and Kim Davies

Chartered Surveyors Bruton Knowles reveals the launch of its National Valuation team was one of the key factors which contributed to the business surviving the pandemic, with the team predicting a 30 per cent increase in valuation income for its year-end.

The leading property consultancy launched its National Valuation Team in July 2020, to reflect the growing demand from clients to deliver secured loan RICS Red Book valuations across an ever-increasing geographical area demand, delivering to a range of national banks, building societies and specialist lenders.

Since launching, five key appointments have been made to create a team of expert valuers across the country, feeding into its National Team approach. The new hires include:

  • Andrew Wilcock (Associate, South East)
  • Yasmine Lunn (Surveyor, North East)
  • Tanya Atkinson (Senior Surveyor, South West) 
  • Rachel Branney (Associate, North West). 

In addition, new hires have been made for the North West region alongside further planned recruitment for the South West and South Wales regions.

The property consultancy has extensive experience in delivering valuation services and a long list of high-profile clients within the banking industry. Supported by a strong reputation for delivering an efficient service, the firm has remained in high demand, and is now working with nearly all of the high street banks alongside sitting on the panel for a number of secondary lenders and challenger banks. 

The National Valuation Team is headed up by Partner and Head of Valuations, Ian Pitt, who is supported by a central valuation team as well as core valuers based across Bruton Knowles’ network of UK offices.

Ian Pitt, Partner and Head of the National Valuation Team comments: “Creating a new, centralised National Valuation Team and a streamlined service model has been a successful move for Bruton Knowles. Our new offer of a single structure signified approach, giving us the ability to produce an identical product for lending clients across the country, has been well received.
“Consistency and professionalism is key when working with clients in the banking sector, so our performance is testament to the dedicated team we have in place. Looking ahead, we’ll continue to focus on driving further growth and expansion.”
