A new era will begin at leading Midlands-based chartered surveyors Johnson Fellows when it stages a property advice open day to celebrate the launch of its new branding and website.

The free property advice day, the first to be staged by Johnson Fellows, could become a regular feature as the company strives to build strong business links with firms throughout Birmingham and the wider West Midlands.

We now have an exciting new brand to take us into the next phase of our company’s development as we seek to capitalise on increasing activity in the commercial property sector.

“We have recently won some important new contracts with companies that are major household names and we have recruited key individuals who are helping us to deliver services at the exceptional levels our clients have come to expect.”

Angela Meisterics, property management associate partner, said: “We hope that our property advice day will encourage dozens of local business people to come to meet our team and take the opportunity to discuss any property-related issues they may want to raise. It also gives us a great opportunity to officially unveil our updated website, logo and branding which gives Johnson Fellows a contemporary new image.”
