Congratulations to Ian Scott MRICS from Lambert Smith Hampton for winning this year's Property Agency (Residential & Commercial) award.
A very astute and personable professional who brings exceptional drive and passion for advancing the PRS (Private Rented Sector) field as a specialism and to the surveying industry generally.
Rather than treading the ’well worn’ path Ian has taken a brave step to specialise in a less developed sector. Unlike some young surveyors who receive advice from senior colleagues with decades of experience, Ian has worked hard to develop a strong understanding of his market and subsequently become one of the most knowledgeable PRS specialist outside of London.
Thus, he has been incredibly successful in developing a list of high profile clients and is single-handedly facilitating transactions in excess of £110 million.
Ian is the embodiment of the RICS ethics and professional standards, always acting with integrity and encouraging other to do so, providing high standards of service, acting in a way that promotes trust in the profession and taking responsibility for his own and colleagues actions.
Ian sets himself high standards but also provides encouragement and support to ensure colleagues stick to them. His astuteness and level of judgement in all situations are remarkable for a young surveyor.
