40 Years’ Service for Brasier Freeth’s Simon Scarisbrick

A Principal of Hertfordshire and London based Chartered Surveyor's Practice Brasier Freeth is celebrating his 40th year with the firm. Simon Scarisbrick joined the Practice back in 1976 straight from college at a time when jobs were scarce and only 5 out of 30 graduates in his year group found employment.

After just three years Simon had impressed his fellow colleagues and was made an Associate and went on to become an Equity Partner in 1985. A Fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, Simon now works from the firm's Welwyn Garden City office. Simon has considerable experience and specialisms but now focuses predominantly on providing planning and development consultancy, advising a variety of clients from private individuals and local businesses to large corporates including Affinity Water.

Over the years Simon has seen many changes in the property world and through good and bad economic times he has witnessed the company going from strength to strength. Taylor Melhuish, the New Barnet firm Simon joined, successfully merged with Freeth & Co in 1990 to become Freeth Melhuish and more recently in 2008 a merger with Brasier Harris saw the creation of the firm as it is today 'Brasier Freeth'.

Simon has always strived to deliver the best results for his clients. In recent years he has received some major instructions including the sale of land in Buckinghamshire for £13.5 million and just last year he led the liquidation of a private property pension fund with a total realisation of around £8 million. Both deals far exceeded our client's expectations.

Commenting on his milestone achievement, Simon said, "The Freeth Melhuish merger with Brasier Harris in 2008 coincided with the banking crisis and global recession. Despite this our business is stronger today than it has ever been at any time during the 40 years I have been a part of it. I have been very fortunate during that time to have enjoyed a variety of work and the clients and colleagues I've worked with have ensured that no two days are the same."
