Growth of North East valuations team
Our property valuation team is already the largest in the North East, but it has grown further with the addition of new surveyor, Catey Oliver. Catey’s addition to the Teesside office brings the valuation team in the North East to 11 members. In her new role, Catey will provide valuation advice to both residential and commercial property clients of the firm.
Catey has joined us from one of our longstanding clients, PD ports, where she had worked since 2005 as an estates administrator and later, estates surveyor managing leases and renewals for property located on ‘port’ land.
As well as lease management and renewals, Catey has experience in rent reviews, commercial property management, tenant and landlord liaison, and is a qualified member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.
Matt Clarke, valuation partner in our Teesside office, said: “Catey brings some unique commercial property experience to the team with her background in port property. Her knowledge and professionalism will be instrumental in ensuring the valuation department maintains its leading position in the North East.
“Demand for our services continues to grow, which is indicative of the improving economy. Catey’s appointment comes at a perfect time and her experience in what is a specialised field will be a great benefit to current and future clients. Growing our team of valuers, which is the largest in the North East, expands our capacity to deal with client instructions and increases our strength and depth in handling specialist areas of property valuation. We hope to make more exciting appointments soon.”
Commenting on her appointment, Catey said: “Sanderson Weatherall is a well-established and market leading property consultancy with a strong presence in the North East. I’m looking forward to the new challenges and the variety of work that will come with working at Sanderson Weatherall, enabling me to gain more experience in dealing with the wider property market beyond ‘port’ land.”
