Graham is head of Derby Real Estate with in excess of 25 years’ experience in real estate and commercial property. He is a highly regarded specialist within the real estate sector.

Having trained with the firm, Graham spent a couple of years post qualification with one of the top ten world international firms before “coming home” to the firm to develop and grow the real estate team in the East Midlands.

A recognised leader in the field of real estate, Graham is known for his dynamic, pragmatic and commercial approach to transactions and general strategic advice. He is the “go to” person for added value and to get things done.

A mad Leicester Tigers and Derby County fan, when not flying around the Derbyshire countryside in lycras on his bike, he has been known to sit on riverbanks in contemplative mode waiting for the next fish!!
