A Big Welcome To 2015!

Posted on Friday, January 9, 2015

As 2014 comes to a close, we can look back at the year and see just how much Pinnacle Surveyors has grown from strength to strength. We pride ourselves on maintaining good relationships with our panel managers, customers and anyone we come into contact with, and have worked hard throughout 2014 to preserve these relationships.

The year has also seen the addition of several new surveyors so that we can now cover a wider area of the UK.

We now have offices and surveyors in the following areas, adding to our current UK coverage:

Oxford 

Charles Kingsley Evans, MA (Oxon) MRICS, was one of the first surveyors joining us in 2014 (February), creating our Oxford office, covering Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire. Charles works as a Consultant for us and as sole trader of his own business. He has been an RICS member for over 20 years having previously worked for large international surveying firms in London, Paris and Dusseldorf.

Putney 

Andrew Lashbrooke, MRICS joined our ever growing wealth of surveyors in the South, particularly in and around London in March. On joining us, this created our Putney office and he covers South West London. Andrew is a Consultant for Pinnacle and sole trader of his own business. He has been an RICS member for 25 years and has run his own company for 11 years working as a consultant for all major panel managers and lenders.

Rochester 

Barrie Fewtrell, MRICS joined our Rochester office in May which has increased the amount of work we can carry out in this area. This includes cities and towns such as Dartford, Gravesend and Sittingbourne. Barrie was employed by us having been the former head of Building Standards for the Metropolitan Police. Since 1999 he worked for a number of major panel managers.

Gateshead

Steven Jones, AssocRICS is a new surveyor who is now helping to provide extra cover in our Gateshead office covering the North East of England. Steven did a Q&A which can be found on our Blog: http://www.pinnaclesurveyors.co.uk/blog/meet-our-newest-surveyor-steven-jones-assocrics.html Steven was employed by us in June having worked for a well known estate agent in the North East.

Buxton 

Peter Marlor, FRICS joined us in July 2014, creating our Buxton office which covers areas in the Peak District, Macclesfield and Stockport, amongst many others. Peter was employed by Pinnacle having previously worked for surveying arms of various banks and building societies over a long career. He was a managing surveyor for a large corporate surveying firm.

Luton

Andy Harris, MRICS and Alastair Hay, MRICS both came to us towards the end of 2014, creating our Luton office. This covers areas in Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire. Both Andy and Alastair have been employed by Pinnacle having been directors of Bradshaws for nearly 30 years.

We also have Verity Lowe who joined Pinnacle in September. Verity is a Graduate Surveyor with an MSc in Real Estate Management. She is currently undertaking her Assessment of Professional Competence with ourselves and she also recently completed a Q&A for us which can be found on our Blog: http://www.pinnaclesurveyors.co.uk/blog/meet-our-graduate-verity-lowe.html

 

In 2015 we have already welcomed a new surveyor to our Kettering office in the form of Matthew James, FRICS who will be taking work from early January. Matthew joins Pinnacle as a Consultant and also works as consultant for a large corporate surveying firm.

We are also currently in discussions with several other surveyors about the possibility of new offices this year, particularly in the South of England and Northern Ireland.

Pinnacle Surveyors will certainly not be standing still during 2015 and will strive to improve the coverage for both mortgage lenders and customers alike whilst maintaining the high level of customer service you can expect to receive.

We hope you have a fantastic 2015 and hope that you consider us for your next home purchase!

Happy New Year!
