From Our Website

We are panel valuers to most high street banks and a number of other lending institutions including some overseas banks and sub-prime operators. As well as operating in the traditional office, retail, industrial and residential markets, we have specific expertise within the communal, charitable and ecclesiastical sector and also within motor trade including petrol filling stations. Valuation reports are also prepared for litigation or quasi-litigation purposes including matrimonial and similar disputes.


Gareth Kreike trained and qualified in the early 1990s, gaining experience in the sale and valuation of property in a wide range of sectors during a period that saw a rapid rise in property values and an equally rapid decline that lasted at least until the middle of that decade. Subsequently he acted as a consultant to various firms carrying out detailed analyses of development projects in the education sector and thereafter joined Longden & Cook as a partner dealing with commercial valuations and advising clients on a broad range of property ownership and occupation issues.
