Allsop has significantly boosted its capabilities in residential valuation with a trio of senior hires. The appointments come as Allsop looks to expand its growing residential and valuation team in response to a booming marketplace and a wealth of new business.

The trio, all previously directors, join as salaried Partners in recognition of the extensive experience and industry knowledge they will bring to the team. The appointments will increase Allsop’s residential valuation team to 23 across its London and Leeds offices. Liam, Damian and Chris will be based at its London office.

Liam has worked at Savills for the last 16 years and specialises in loan security work for investment and development, as well as a range of high value single units in London and the southeast.

Scott Tyler, Senior Partner, Allsop, said: “We are delighted to welcome Liam, Damian and Chris to Allsop. There is no doubt that their expertise, experience and market insight will help to boost our existing capabilities in residential valuation.
