Colliers has recruited specialist valuations advisor Alistair Johnstone, to co-head its Central London Valuations team.

Alistair has more than 20 years’ experience and is well known in the market, advising REITS, private investors and banks. He joins from Knight Frank where he was a partner and prior to that he worked at CBRE, in London and San Francisco. Alistair’s skillset and experience in flexible offices, complex projects and discounted cash flow valuations will bolster Colliers’ capabilities in these important and topical areas.

Sara Duncan, Head of Valuations & Advisory at Colliers said: “Our Valuations business has expanded significantly in recent years, particularly in central London. We are thrilled that Alistair is joining Martyn to co-lead the team. They will work closely with our transactional colleagues and our residential valuation team to offer a holistic service to investors, developers and lenders.“

Alistair said: “This is an interesting time to be a valuer, and those that are on top of the market will shine. I am very excited to be joining forces with Martyn to drive market share and growing the central London offering at Colliers.”

Colliers has valued more than £10billion of transactions within central London over the past five years for acquisition, financial reporting and loan security purposes. Martyn joined Colliers in 2018 to establish the City Valuation team and has developed strong relationships with both domestic and international clients.

Martyn added: “Our clients’ needs are changing with broadening interests across London, and I am excited to be working with Alistair to continue to grow our client base leveraging off of our collective experience and the wider Colliers business.”
