At Buchanan Bond our day to day working life consists of a fairly even split between disposal and acquisition work. We are amongst the best in class at proactively sourcing off-market opportunities and putting our clients in a position to successfully acquire property in what is an increasingly competitive market. Equally our knowledge of sector buyers and long-standing agency relationships enable us to exceed our client's expectations when selling.
