Career Profile

Career Profile: Land Agent

Name: Alastair Paul

Job Title: Land Agent

I work in the Rural Consultancy team and I am a Land Agent and qualified Chartered Surveyor

I have public, private, charity and institutional clients who all own rural estates – one owns the largest publicly owned London Green Belt Estate

I advise a range of clients with all their rural property matters – the variety of client and estate is huge.
The work is split 50/50 between managing estates and giving bespoke professional advice to specific rural property issues.

Highlights of my career are becoming a Partner, being the first person in my company to open an office in East Anglia and becoming the key advisor to the rural public sector in the home counties. The diversity is the key attraction along with fascinating high value and unique properties. Dealing with a huge mixture of people and having great colleagues makes work very enjoyable. I also find I am one of very few people who is out and about so much that I look forward to being in the office – you don’t hear many people say that!
