Ambitious West Midlands commercial property consultancy Burley Browne has bolstered its ranks after securing significant levels of new business.

Burley Browne, which recently celebrated winning one of its largest instructions when it was appointed by the National Farmers Union (NFU) to manage its entire property portfolio across the UK, has welcomed four new team members.

Eleanor Robinson has joined the business as agency surveyor to support the continued growth of the busy commercial agency department. Eleanor will be dealing with a wide cross-section of agency instructions, including offices, industrial, retail, investment and acquisitions.

She has five years’ experience in the commercial property market, having joined from established Birmingham practice BK. Before that she worked at Cushman & Wakefield. Talha Razak has joined Eleanor in the agency team as a graduate surveyor.

Meanwhile, recently qualified chartered surveyor Elle Joannou has joined the business from Colliers in Birmingham where she spent over two years. She will support the landlord and tenant and property management team, working alongside joint managing director James Merrick and senior property manager Katie Mills. The management team is further bolstered with the arrival of assistant property accountant Oliver Curtis-Pearce who recently graduated from Exeter University.

Joint managing director and head of lease advisory & professional services James Merrick said: “We are delighted to be welcoming Eleanor, Ellie, Talha and Oliver to the team at such an exciting time for the business and we wish them all enormous success in their new roles.

“We saw continued growth across all sectors in 2023 and this is set to continue throughout 2024 which has seen us secure some exciting new instructions. The arrival of Eleanor and Elle brings further experience to the agency, landlord & tenant and management teams. Talha and Oliver, who have been given graduate roles, will thrive as they benefit from the expertise of the teams they have joined. Further recruitment across the business is planned for the remainder of 2024. These really are exciting times at Burley Browne.”
