We celebrating 15 successful years in business.

13 March 2019


Wells McFarlane announced its 15th year in business as Chartered Surveyors and Property Consultants.

Founded by long-time friends Andrew McFarlane Holt and Trevor Wells, the two Directors met as students at Harper Adams University where they both gained Honours Degrees in Land Management before going on to qualify as Chartered Surveyors in 1997. The two remained great friends and in 2004 founded Wells McFarlane on the shared ambition to establish a niche practice in the heart of the East Midlands.

15 years’ on and the firm continues to achieve year on year growth having worked hard to build an impressive portfolio of clients. Today, the firm’s planning and development department represent three of the largest commercial development schemes in Leicestershire that will result in the development of more than 10 million sq. ft. of distribution space and create thousands of jobs for the county. Alongside the commercial development, the firm has continued to deliver landowners with planning permissions for housing, from small infill developments through to large urban extensions such as the new garden suburb development known as Broadnook near Wanlip, Leicestershire which will deliver exemplar housing alongside employment opportunities.

As well as their commercial agency and management department, Wells McFarlane run a successful residential department offering a bespoke property consultancy for both the sale and letting of residential properties.

Wells McFarlane has grown from a team of two at its inception to a team of 12 today, supporting many graduates through their Chartership with The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and the Central Association of Agricultural Valuers.

“We’re very proud of the way Wells McFarlane has grown over the last 15 years and the reputation we have worked hard to build across the East Midlands. When it comes to our secret to success, I think it comes down to remembering our motivation for starting our own practice all those years ago; which was and still is to always put our clients first, provide them with tailored advice together with the highest level of professional care” Wells McFarlane co-founder and Director Andrew explains.

“And of course, we have seen huge changes within the digital landscape over the last 15 years from the way we market property to how we communicate with our customers, we continue to embrace these changes as we move forward – here’s to the next 15 years!” Andrew added.

Happy 15th Birthday Wells McFarlane!
