DM Hall, one of Scotland’s leading firms of Chartered Surveyors, has brought in the New Year with a bang, by promoting Richard Clowes in its Galashiels office, to Associate.

Richard joined DM Hall as a Senior Surveyor in late 2009. Since joining the firm, Richard has headed up the Galashiels office and has a wealth of experience in that area, having practiced as a Chartered Surveyor throughout the Borders and Northumberland for over 10 years.

Richard has already developed a strong reputation in the Borders area and is very much looking forward to further growing the business in the future.

Residential surveys partner Donald Robertson said: “Richard has extensive experience in the regional property market and thoroughly deserves this promotion.”
