Steve surveys the future

We’ve given a warm welcome to our 25th member of staff, Steve Funnell.
Steve is well known in the local property world with more than 25 years of experience under his belt.
He has joined our chartered surveying department as we step up our recruitment drive to meet rising demand for our services – especially for surveys.
Ian Lee, one of our directors, said: “Steve is a highly experienced and well known property professional who we are sure will be a great asset to the firm.
“He joins us as we continue to expand and seek to appoint more staff to meet increased demand for our surveys and property-related services.”
Steve, 53, of Waterlooville, will be based at our head office at the Fairway Business Centre in Portsmouth.
He has 27 years of experience in property as a regional manager at the Countrywide group before starting his own estate agency Funnell & Co in 2003.
Steve also holds Domestic Energy Assessor (DEA) and Commercial Energy Assessor (NDEA) qualifications.
He has recently started the SAVA Diploma in Residential Surveying and Valuation, and will take the next step in his career to become a Member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
Steve said: “I don’t believe in stopping and with my experience, a move into chartered surveying was the obvious next step.
“McAndrew Martin is a well-known and rapidly growing firm with a great reputation. I’m looking forward to advancing my career with the company and contributing to its future success.”
We’re expanding our ranks with up to 10 new staff after a record-breaking year.
As well as apprentices, we’re seeking chartered surveyors and property asset data taggers to carry out inventories at properties and provide property services support.
As well as surveys and Homebuyer Reports, we’ve also seen demand grow for our other property-related services, including architectural design, mechanical and electrical engineering, conservation, land and property development .
Steve’s appointment represents more expansion for us after our 2014 takeovers of Fareham-based Brunel Design Group and Cosham-based Veness Chartered Surveyors.

We’ve given a warm welcome to our 25th member of staff, Steve Funnell. Steve is well known in the local…
