At the young age of 24 years old Christopher took a calculated risk in setting up his own practice deep within the recession. His drive, motivation and sheer determination has seen the company develop into a fast growing, fresh thinking and award winning professional consultancy with offices in Staffordshire and London.


This determination has seen Christopher recognised by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors, a highly respected institution, as an exceptional ambassador for the industry; Winning Young Surveyor of the Year in the category of Planning and Development in 2014. He is also one of the youngest people in the UK to become an RICS Accredited Expert Witness.
