Expansion for surveyor
DM Hall acquires JA Pollock Property Consultants
A director, Graeme Pollock, pictured, will join the firm as the commercial agency director running the East of Scotland agency operation.
Established in 1997 by former Livingston Development Corporation executive Jim Pollock, its initial role was to provide property advice to local businesses. Mr Pollock is retiring.
Today the firm assists in the acquisition, development, leasing and sale of all types of non-residential property to a range of national and regional property investors and developers specialising in business space.
Pollock’s currently has a stock in excess of 100 properties – office, industrial and retail units together with development land – across West Lothian.
Michael Court, partner and head of the D M Hall’s East Commercial team, said: “JA Pollock is a well-respected property business and the major player in the West Lothian market. We are very pleased to have come to an agreement to merge its business into our national operations although it will continue to trade under its own name.
“We are delighted, too, that Graeme Pollock, who has headed the business for a number of years has chosen to join DM Hall. He will lead our agency operations in the East, working between our Edinburgh office and Livingston.”
Mr Pollock said: “Merging our family-owned business into DM Hall represents a tremendous opportunity to capitalise on all the hard work put in over the years by the JA Pollock team.”
