Hayley Anderson, a former Estates Surveyor with Aberdeen City Council, has joined the expanding commercial team in the Aberdeen office of DM Hall, one of Scotland’s leading independent firms of chartered surveyors, as its new Commercial Valuation Surveyor.
An honours graduate in Property and Spatial Planning of the University of Aberdeen, Hayley went on to earn an MSc in Sustainable Rural Development in late 2013 before joining the City Council as a Graduate Estates Surveyor. She qualified as a member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) in spring 2016.
She said: “In my role as an Estates Surveyor I was the primary case officer for two compulsory purchase order cases on behalf of the acquiring authority, having studied Compulsory Purchase to level 3 in my RICS Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) which I believe is fairly unusual. I am looking forward to utilising my skills in this sector for DM Hall and, I hope, will be able to be involved on behalf of our clients in the future.”
Eric Curran, managing partner of DM Hall, said: “We are very pleased to welcome Hayley onto the team. With her record of achievement in her studies, combined with her broad range of practical experience, we anticipate that she will provide strong support to our clients in issues relating to commercial property valuation.
“We already have an accomplished five-strong commercial property team in place in Aberdeen and Hayley’s appointment is a further demonstration to our clients that, yet again, DM Hall’s professional expertise is second to none.”
Said Hayley: “I am very much enjoying the new experience of operating in the private professional sector and believe that I can readily apply my knowledge and understanding of property matters to the benefit of our clients’ businesses.”
