Background and industry experienceRachel works in the Rural team at the Chester office, having joined Fisher German in August 2015. After graduating from Harper Adams, she subsequently qualified as a Chartered Surveyor in 2007 and as a Fellow of the Central Association of Agricultural Valuers in 2008. She has since gained a wealth of experience in rural professional consultancy and estate management, working with agricultural, residential and commercial properties.
Predominantly working in Cheshire and North Wales, Rachel enjoys the broad variety of work that stems from estate management, including landlord and tenant matters, estate strategic planning, property renovations, and planning applications. She also carries out professional consultancy work including ‘Red Book’ valuations and AMC applications. Other work includes management of long leasehold properties and associated organisation of service charges and ground rents for residential units in Lancashire.
Rachel is also a member of the Agricultural Law Association and Honorary Secretary of the Chester Association of Property Professionals. In 2018, Rachel was announced as the RICS Matrics Young Surveyor of the Year Winner in the Land (Rural and Urban) category and in 2019, achieved the rarely given status of ‘Recognition’ on AMC application feedback.
Outside of work, not one to be cooped up inside, she enjoys getting out and about in the fresh air.
