Trusted Land Agent Announces New Head of Farm Sales

ONE of the UK’s leading land and estate agents has underlined its commitment to providing expert service by appointing an experienced specialist as Head of Farm sales.

Bell Ingram has promoted from within to appoint Stewart Hamilton as it strengthens its agricultural presence and investment in farming clients by shining a spotlight on farm sales.

Stewart has a strong agricultural background having grown up on a farm and has an extensive breadth of experience from selling farms across Scotland.

Having joined Bell Ingram in 2006, Stewart is a qualified surveyor and RICS registered valuer, specialising in all aspects of valuation work and farm and estate management.

Stewart said: “Coming from a farming background, I really understand the service that someone is looking for when they come to sell their farm.

“I’m fully aware that it can be off putting for farmers to be spoken to in language they’re unfamiliar with, so we believe in speaking in straightforward terms that have meaning to our clients, to make sure that everyone is on exactly the same page.

“At Bell Ingram, we firmly believe in providing a quality, bespoke service with fair and honest agency fees.

“We’re different from call services that are hard to get hold of; we offer a personal touch for our clients and are flexible, as we understand how busy life as a farmer can be.

“Our vast experience means that we know the market place well, and operate across Scotland with a competitive edge.”

Reasons for farm sales range from retirement to family fall-outs, through to the simple fact that children of farmers do not want to carry on with the family business.

Recently Bell Ingram have sold a portfolio of five farms for over £9million, showing just how crucial it is to have professional experts like Stewart to guide clients through the process.

Stewart added: “We’re very upfront with costs and ensure we get the best value for money for our clients.

“We take time to get to know their background and make them aware of every possible pitfall and give advice on how to avoid them.

“Something that really sets us apart is that we can offer the variety of different services involved in a sale from under one roof, thanks to our expert valuation team and extras, such as our drone photography capability.”

Stewart will be at Agri-Scot on November 21st to provide expert advice to those looking to sell.

Head quartered in Perth, Bell Ingram manages over 500,000 hectares across the UK on behalf of public, private and corporate clients.
