"We intend to strengthen our position in the market by adding significant experience and expertise in areas that we have identified as being key to our future plans."

Peter Browne said "Since establishing Burley Browne alongside Andrew Burley, we have grown the business and established it as one of the leading regional property consultancies with a first class reputation."

"We've got some fantastic clients and highly experienced colleagues.  I'm delighted to pass on the reins to David and James and I'm confident the business will be in safe hands as it continues to evolve."
