SHEPHERD Chartered Surveyors, Scotland’s leading chartered surveyor and property agent, has embarked on an expansion drive into England with the launch of Shepherd Property Consultants.
The venture incorporates the historic and highly regarded companies of Bigwood Properties in Birmingham and SJ Higgins Property Consultants in London, bringing together decades of experience and a wealth of resources to create a new offering to the UK property sector.
Shepherd Property Consultants’ comprehensive service offering includes property and asset management consultancy, lease advisory and related professional services, building surveying and agency.
With regional offices in London and Birmingham, it represents landlords, tenants and investors throughout the West Midlands, London and the South East of England.
Shepherd Chartered Surveyors’ Senior Partner George Brewster said: “We are delighted to introduce this new property consultancy which is an extension of our property management and professional services in Scotland, giving us a UK wide footprint. The business is now dedicated to delivering exceptional resources and services to clients across all aspects of the property sector.
“Shepherd Property Consultants has been born from recognition of the value of fostering a close working relationship with clients and stakeholders and a commitment to the dedication required to provide a fully integrated property solution.”
Tom Higgins, Managing Director of Shepherd Property Consultants, added: “The formation of our new property consultancy enables us to offer a full spectrum of specialisms and expertise to our clients’ broad range of enquiries throughout the length and breadth of England and remainder of the UK. Already the response from existing and potential clientele has been universally positive.
“The entire team are excited to be part of this venture and we are looking forward to delivering the new service offering to our clients.
The formation of Shepherd Property Consultants marks the latest acquisition of a significant expansion and diversification strategy executed by Shepherd Chartered Surveyors over recent years.
Four years ago, Shepherd merged with Hardies Property and Construction Consultants to form a practice unrivalled in its delivery network of traditional surveying and construction services throughout the country. Recently, Hardies acquired Glasgow-based Allan & Hanel, Chartered Quantity Surveyors two years after having acquired Glasgow-based Construction Cost Consultants Binnie-McKenzie Partnership.
And at the end of last year Shepherd forged a new partnership with SDL Property Auctions, an industry pioneer thanks to its market-leading live-streamed national property auctions, to sell commercial properties in Scotland via both live-streamed Auction Events and Timed Auctions.
