Carter Jonas strengthens Valuation team with three new hires

Carter Jonas, the national property consultancy, has enhanced its Valuation team in London with three new appointments, including affordable housing expert, Barry Rea.

Rea joins Carter Jonas as a partner, with Michael Henretty and Lucy-Anne Johnson as an associate and graduate surveyor respectively. They are based out of the Carter Jonas’ London headquarters, One Chapel Place, and sit within the firm’s existing team of national valuation experts led by Dudley Holme-Turner. The trio has enhanced the capacity of Carter Jonas’s valuation services to the Registered Provider sector, banks and developer clients.

With more than 19 years’ experience, Rea was previously a director at GL Hearn specialising in affordable housing. He previously held roles at Savills and LaSalle Investment Management and is frequently called upon to advise on litigation and planning matters and financial viability assessments, helping developers to secure feasible planning consents. Additionally, Rea has been retained as an agent on a number of schemes to dispose of affordable housing units to a Registered Provider once planning is achieved. Recent projects in which he has been involved include L&Q’s Barking Riverside development and Clarion Housing Group’s Abbey Wharf project in Brent.

Henretty joins from Cushman & Wakefield and brings more than 10 years’ valuation experience from single assets to residential portfolios as well as complex appraisals. He specialises in the London Super Prime residential market and will work to develop Carter Jonas’s capabilities in this area.

Johnson joins from Lidl where she worked as a property consultant responsible for the management and expansion of the business’s property portfolio across Norfolk, Lincolnshire and Suffolk and its national strategy. In her new role, Johnson will concentrate on residential valuation and advisory work primarily working with Registered Providers.

Dudley Holme-Turner, Head of Valuations, Carter Jonas said: “These are three fantastic appointments that build on the expertise of our existing team and enable us to enhance our residential valuation and advisory offering. Barry is a highly regarded expert in the area of valuations with an in-depth knowledge of the Registered Provider market, as well as an extensive network. This, together with Michael and Lucy’s combined experience, is extremely beneficial for our growth strategy to provide a comprehensive range of services across multiple asset classes.”
