Who we are and what we do
Fisher German was established in September 2000 after the merger of Fisher Hoggarth and John German with a history going back to 1830. Since then we have grown at an impressive rate; 16 offices across the UK with around 500 employees and partners. The firm’s strength is demonstrated by unprecedented growth throughout the recent economic downturn to an annual turnover of over £30 million (2018).
We operate nationally advising and managing a wide range of client portfolios on behalf of blue chip companies, pension funds, private landowners, utility companies, national charities, local authorities and government agencies. We are proud of the company we keep!
We have a national visibility across all the 6 property market sectors; rural, commercial, development, residential, utilities & infrastructure and sustainable energy. We have considerable resources to operate a localised approach to service delivery. We deliver a wide range of integrated chartered surveying, consultancy and estate agency services across each of those sectors.
Our Vision is to be the best at what we do as judged by our clients and colleagues.
We aim for simplicity in everything that we do.
We have pride in ourselves, our colleagues, our services, and our company.

We embody professionalism in our dealings with clients and colleagues.
We are entrepreneurial in our approach to servicing clients needs.
We empower our people, giving them the space to develop and grow in their roles.
