Bruton Knowles is strengthening its valuation specialism in the South East with the appointment of Sarah Kingston.
Sarah joins the firm’s Guildford office as associate to help handle a steep increase in commercial and investment property-related enquiries.
She joins Bruton Knowles from Eddison Taylors where she was involved in the valuation of commercial and investment property across the South East; she also worked for organisations in the healthcare, retail, licenced and leisure sectors.
Bruton Knowles partner Guy Emmerson said: “The Guildford office is enjoying a continuing period of strong growth.
“Sarah brings valuable experience to the firm and will help boost the reputation and profile of the team. She will increase our capacity to service our regular clients and provide timely advice to new ones.
“Sarah is the latest key appointment we have made to keep pace with the workload. We intend to recruit further high calibre staff to realise our growth plans.”
Sarah qualified as a chartered surveyor in 1992 and has worked in the commercial property industry since that time.
Initially she worked within general practice agency, specialising in the sale, leasing and acquisition of offices, industrial and retail property.
She then moved on to Atisreal (now BNP Paribas Real Estate), specialising in the value of commercial portfolios on behalf of a number of property and pension funds.
Commenting on her appointment Sarah said: “This is an exciting time to be joining the firm. I am looking forward to generating business and increasing Bruton Knowles’ market share across the South East.”
