Carter Jonas’ first instruction was managing the estates for the Marquess of Lincolnshire in 1855.

Since then, we have continued to provide a trusted, strategic and pragmatic management service to a wide variety of clients including private land owners, international companies, major institutions, charities, utility companies and local authorities.

Whether a property has been in a family for generations or recently acquired, our approach is to understand your objectives – what you want to achieve. Whether it is maximising value from the business or providing a legacy for future generations, our service can be tailored to your needs.

All our Partners and Associate Partners are rural practice Chartered Surveyors and many are also certified valuers. This depth of experience allows us to meet the variety of challenges that are faced by modern day businesses. Working with everything from small farm businesses to large country estates, our team is proficient in all aspects of management, including in-hand trading businesses, residential and commercial property, refurbishment and diversification of farm buildings, succession planning and providing innovative business solutions.

At Carter Jonas, we value our rural heritage. Our approach has enabled us to build long lasting relationships based on trust and reputation, which is why we are retained to manage over 1.3 million acres of land, farms and estates and are still retained by our first client today.
