Chartered surveyor and registered valuer David Burke has joined the team at commercial agents Lawson Commercial in Uckfield.
He will be heading the Professional Department, taking over from Jeremy Fry who has left due to his father’s ill health.
David has a BSc in Estate Management and has been an asset manager of commercial property for more than 25 years and, having run a number of family property portfolios, has a wealth of experience in commercial property management.
He has spent most of his property career working in London and Europe but he lives in Haywards Heath, and felt it was time to give up the rat race and work more locally. He now joins the firm to assist on the property management and professional side.
Lawson Commercial partner Chris Lawson said: ‘We are very pleased to have secured David’s services as commercial property management is playing an ever important part of our business.
“We have been successful in gaining a number of new commercial property management instructions and need a strong department in this area.
“With an ever increasing burden of current and forthcoming legislation it is important to have a high level of expertise in this complex field. So if you need assistance with commercial property management or would like an informal chat to discuss possibilities do give us a call.”
Lawson Commercial makes a lot of its ‘canine team’ Cleo, a Collie cross Husky, and Toffee, a Chocolate Labrador cross Husky, and so is pleased that David has two dogs of his own, both Retrievers.
