New surveyor joins Garness Jones team
A PROPERTY professional who has spent more than seven years working for Associated British Ports in the Humber has taken the step into the agency world with Hull-based Garness Jones chartered surveyors.
Zoe Clarvis (pictured) joined ABP as a property assistant after adding a post-graduate diploma from the University College of Estate Management to her psychology degree from the University of Hull. She gained experience in the surveying side of the business by working on property management, lease renewals, rent reviews, lettings and customer care for businesses ranging from small fish merchants in Grimsby to major international concerns in Immingham and the burgeoning renewables sector.
As Agency Surveyor at Garness Jones, Zoe will support the company’s expansion in the office and development sectors as well as in retail and leisure, which is seeing increasing activity as a result of Hull’s City of Culture status.
Zoe said: “I’ve had a great time with ABP working on a variety of high level projects. I became aware of Garness Jones through their work in the area and I’m delighted to have the opportunity to join them at such an exciting time for businesses in the Humber region.”
Paul White, Agency Director at Garness Jones, said Zoe will work primarily in the Hull area and will also be involved at sites around the region including Burton Waters near Lincoln and locations as far afield as Doncaster, York and Scarborough.
Paul added: “We were particularly impressed by Zoe’s knowledge and enthusiasm and her strong background in customer care. Her own experience indicates how business in the Humber region is changing with the growth of renewables, a sector in which we are heavily involved working with clients from start-ups to multi-national businesses.”
