Northampton based commercial property agency to join the firm

Posted on 22 September 2014.

Northampton-based commercial property agency Blacklee Smith has been acquired by Neil Mason Associates.The move combines Blacklee Smith’s considerable agency heritage with Neil Mason Associates’ property consultancy expertise to create one of the foremost specialist surveying practices in the Midlands.

“We’re delighted to be joining the team at Neil Mason Associates,” said Steve Smith of Blacklee Smith. “The move will allow us to offer a much broader range of services to our clients such as property management and building surveying, whilst still continuing the personal service that we have always offered.”

“We have a great deal of experience in providing surveying consultancy and advice to clients, particularly those in the specialist healthcare sector, but this move will add an extra dimension to what we are able to offer overall,” adds Tom Mason, director at Neil Mason Associates. “Richard Blacklee and Steve Smith will continue with us as consultants and we are all very much looking forward to continuing to grow the business over the coming months.”

Together, the firm will provide a comprehensive range of professional surveying services for the commercial property and healthcare sectors, including valuation and property consultancy, development advice, building surveying and project management, property management and property sales and lettings.

Neil Mason Associates has an impressive list of clients including institutional investors, educational and family based charitable trusts, major financial sector companies, GP partnerships, NHS Trusts and specialist developers in the primary care and medical sectors.

The move to acquire Blacklee Smith follows from last month’s announcement of the appointment of building surveyor Tony Young, to expand the building surveying and project management side of the business.
