Carter Jonas can advise on estate strategy across the whole of public- and third-sector property portfolios, including operational and non-operational property, investment and development opportunities, and rural assets. 

Throughout our work, we focus on meeting key priorities and objectives, including One Public Estate (OPE) initiatives. 

Our in-depth experience, gained by working as advisors to local authorities, central government and charities, has given us a thorough understanding of operational requirements and the ability to align this to corporate and property decision-making, in order to achieve optimum efficiency and reduce unnecessary costs. This is equally applicable across all operational organisations.

Our strategic property portfolio reviews are specifically aligned to the particular requirements and objectives of our clients. 

Please contact us for an initial consultation.
