National property consultant Eddisons has appointed Jason Smith to the new role of director, with responsibility for real estate and commercial valuations across the North East.
Jason, who has 20 years’ experience of commercial property valuation in the north of England, joins Eddisons from specialist property adviser Christie & Co where he worked for ten years as a director. During this time he has built considerable expertise in valuing trading businesses in the hospitality, leisure, healthcare, medical and retail property sectors.
He will be based in the firm’s growing Newcastle office, which saw two new surveyor appointments last year, and is also a fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors with a degree in Urban Estate Surveying.
In his new role, Jason will head Eddisons’ valuations business across the North East, managing assignments for loan security, transactional, legal and accounting purposes. His remit will include valuing commercial real estate and investments as well as trading businesses.
Eddisons’ national head of valuations, Anthony Spencer, said: “Jason brings in-depth knowledge of the North East market and his valuations expertise, especially in hospitality, healthcare and retail, will enable us to offer an even more impressive service to clients in sectors where Eddisons is already seeing increased demand.”
He added: “Our Newcastle office is going from strength to strength and this new appointment will boost our presence in the region still further.”
