Jonathan began his career at The Royal Agricultural College, before undertaking work for Strutt and Parker and for the Sitwell Family on their estate in North Derbyshire. He then returned to Northamptonshire, setting up his own practice in 1987 which was later incorporated into Berrys. He qualified as a Fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors in 1988.
Jonathan specialises in residential property surveys, valuations and housing association work which is the result of a varied path through a range of work since the 1970’s. Having spent the early part of his career in Estate Management he began to specialise in residential property in the early 1980’s when he returned to his native Northamptonshire. Over the years he has built up skills in producing Homebuyer Reports and valuations for a variety of purposes including loan security. For a period he was involved in residential property management and in the last 20 years he has been providing valuation and other advice to a number of both national and local Housing Associations.
