We’re incredibly proud to announce that Novello managing director James Brook has won the RICS Young Surveyor of the Year award in the residential property category. These prestigious awards recognise outstanding talent and identify future leaders in the profession. James won the award for his success in launching Novello Chartered Surveyors and the development of bespoke surveys; Homelevel Report and Novello+ Building Survey.

James and co-founder Jack Pye started Novello Chartered Surveyors with the aim to produce quality property surveys and valuations on a quick-turnaround, while at the same time delivering a high level of customer service. As part of this service the pair have championed the use of innovative technology such as pole cams and iPad reports, which has improved the overall surveying experience for home buyers.

On winning the award James says ‘I’m thrilled to have been named RICS Young Surveyor of the Year, especially as I was up against such strong competition. We couldn’t be more pleased to end the year on a high after what has been a great first year for us. Launching a new business is never easy and especially with the extra challenges the COVID-19 pandemic has thrown at us.’
