Business as usual at McAndrew Martin

We’ve adopted a ‘business as usual’ approach at McAndrew Martin in the wake of the EU Referendum decision. The vote was always going to be close although it still came as a shock when the decision was announced.
Although there has been some political and economic volatility so far, we have to look forward with a positive attitude.
There have been concerns about the impact of the Brexit vote on house prices and the property market in general as well as the wider economy.
We don’t anticipate a major impact on our business as we cover multiple areas within the property sector, including surveys, structural engineering, architectural design and conservation work.
As far as we are concerned it is business as usual whilst we will also monitor economic and industry developments and trends to ensure we can continue to deliver the best service to our clients and ensure they have the confidence to proceed in any transactions.
While some clients and businesses will want to ‘wait and see’ to see how events unfold it is important to note that formal departure from the EU will take years rather than months so we will be adopting a long term approach.
We have continued to invest in our premises and our workforce in recent years, and we are determined to continue to do so with our ongoing recruitment drive.
Like many businesses locally, we emerged from the recession stronger, more efficient, more experienced and greater able to face any challenges in the future.
From this position of strength, we have every confidence in our staff, clients, and fellow firms in the Portsmouth Property Association and the local economy to weather any storms but also fully grasp any opportunities in the coming weeks, months and years.
You can also email us on office@mcandrewmartin.com or call 02392 697193 for advice about how the Brexit potentially affects you or your business.
We’re also on Facebook, Twitter under @McAndrewMartin and on LinkedIn under our name.
