BNP Paribas brings together BNP PRE, Strutt & Parker and John Clegg & Co in new Scotland HQ

The combined surveying and estate agency firms of BNP Paribas Real Estate UK, Strutt & Parker and John Clegg & Co have moved into a prestigious new office in the heart of Edinburgh.

The move follows the merger last year of BNP PRE UK with Strutt & Parker and its independent forestry arm John Clegg & Co to become one of the UK’s largest property consultancies, providing advice and support on all matters relating to commercial, residential and rural real estate.

The firm’s Scotland headquarters are now at 76 George Street in Edinburgh, in newly refurbished ground and first floor office space.

Andy Martin, UK CEO of BNP Paribas Real Estate, said: “We are delighted to be able to bring three exceptional teams and three premium brands together under one roof to provide a comprehensive property service to our clients across Scotland. Our new Scotland headquarters embodies the true spirit of collaboration that lies at the heart of our merger and the enhanced client service offer that our new UK business now delivers.”

The Edinburgh office will offer a comprehensive property service. BNP PRE provides commercial investment and agency, valuations, rating advice, property management and facilities management; Strutt & Parker’s residential arm specialises in the prime Edinburgh city market, country houses and estate and farm sales, while John Clegg & Co, UK leaders in buying and selling forestry, also acts in forestry valuation and asset management.

Commercial agency, farming, land management, planning and additional residential sales teams will continue to be based in Glasgow, Perth, Banchory and Inverness.

The teams will continue to operate under the BNP Paribas Real Estate, Strutt & Parker and John Clegg & Co brands.
