Getting to know...
Fran has lived and worked in the North East from childhood and has over 15 years’ experience in the rural sector.
Fran’s career has predominantly been in the estate management and valuation sectors. Fran has managed a diverse range of traditional estates, both upland, and lowland, for both private clients and institutions. In her valuation work, Fran has been a RICS Registered Valuer since the scheme’s inception and carries out valuations for many of the leading lenders in addition to specialising in portfolio valuations.
For me it’s about personal relationships. It’s about finding solutions to challenges that may seem insurmountable at first, delivering those solutions and being part of the future. It’s about knowing that I’ve been able to make a meaningful difference when it matters deeply to a client.
Fran’s client-facing work at GSC Grays is the day-to-day and strategic management of rural estates in County Durham and Northumberland, together with the provision of professional advice, particularly in valuation-related matters.
Within GSC Grays Fran leads the Chester-le-Street Office and is Chair of the GSC Grays Estate Management, Rural Land & Business, and Sporting Board.
As a long-standing APC assessor, Fran is also a mentor to a number of GSC Grays’ trainee surveyors.
