George F White is an established land and property consultancy that’s been in business for more than 30 years.

Its heritage firmly rooted in the North East, the business has experienced continued growth and, as a result, has been able to expand nationally across the UK.

This success, according to the company’s managing partner Robyn Peat, is down to being able to offer specialist, informed advice to clients and provide clarity and direction to help people make the right choices.

Mr Peat, who has been at the business for 26 years, said: “Being able to provide informed advice only results from completely understanding the markets and industry that you work in. We are able to provide detailed knowledge and help to educate clients because of our understanding of the market, industry issues and specialist know-how. This is completely derived from the people that work across the business.

“By giving the right tools to excellent people – the team – we’re able to give the right guidance and support to clients.”

Mr Peat’s appointment as managing partner signals a new era for George F White.

Traditionally, the business focused on rural property, but it has now developed full multi-disciplinary services and has diversified to meet the changing needs of its clients.

The consultancy has expanded through planning and development services, estate and asset management, business advice and management, and commercial property advice.

It has also seen an increasing demand for energy services and project management as the needs of its client base become more complex.

“We’ve done a lot of work in energy across the region, the market is moving relatively quickly and it is an area where we bring a good deal of specialism to,” said Mr Peat.

He added: “Excellent service is central to what we do as a firm and I strongly believe this is what differentiates us from competitors.

“This, coupled with our specialist expertise, enables us to target a 10 per cent year-on-year growth and add to our 120-strong workforce.”
