Guernsey’s leading commercial property specialist, Watts Property Consultants, has appointed Chartered Building Surveyor and RICS Registered Valuer, Mark Johnson, as the firm continues to strengthen and expand its service offering.

In his new role, Mark will enable the firm to offer building consultancy, building surveying and contract administration services. He will also support the property management team and bolster the firm’s valuation services.

Mark brings over 23 years’ post qualification experience to the team and has worked as a Building Surveyor and Valuer in Guernsey since 1994.

He graduated from UWE, Bristol with a BSc honours degree in building surveying and facilities management. Following this, he worked for a national company of surveyors and architects, where he qualified as a Chartered Surveyor.

After 18 months spent overseas, Mark returned to Guernsey and operated as a sole practitioner until 2015, when he became integrated with a local surveying firm.

The appointment comes at a time when the firm is fully focused on offering its clients the full suite of property services.

Joanna Watts, Managing Director at Watts Property Consultants, says: “We’re so pleased to bring Mark on board. His extensive experience will be invaluable in developing our service offering and supporting the team as we look to capitalise on new opportunities within the Channel Islands’ property market.

“Advising our clients when selling, purchasing, letting, valuing, developing and managing commercial property is a complex and multi-faceted process. Being able to offer these services and combined expertise under one roof will make the process far more seamless for our clients.

“I have known Mark for many years and his skills and knowledge of the property market and building fabric will greatly enhance our offering and we are delighted he is now part of our team.”

Mark says: “It’s a really exciting time to be joining the business. Watts Property has an excellent reputation as a client focused and innovative business. It’s great to be part of this and I’m looking forward to developing their building consultancy and surveying services, as well as supporting the property management and valuation teams as they continue to grow.

Mark joined the business on 15th June.
